Get To Know Me: Beauty Bloggers Tag...REVISITED!


Hello Everyone! | Welcome back to my blog, for my second blog post of the week! I was recently tagged by Katie to do the Beauty Blogger Tag, but I remembered I had already did this tag as a collab oration with my good friend, Maja from Majotron. 

I couldn't just not do the post, so I have decided to revisit it! I am just going to leave my comments on my old answers and see if anything has changed. Everything written in black are questions and old answers, while everything in grey are my comments and new answers. Let's get started ^_^

MIRACLE IN A BOTTLE


Hello Everyone | I hope you are all doing fine. If you started school, I hope you made it through okay ^_^ Before school started I was playing around with my makeup to see which look gave me the most natural look to make that 'first impression'. I had bought two new complexion items that are fairly new to the market, but they did not make my skin look nice. More of that in another post!

Why buy school supplies?



Hello Everyone | When I was younger I was sooo obsessed with trying to sly my way into getting my parents to buy me the nice, colorful, and printed school notebooks/folders for school. I also wanted some nice pens along with a fancy Five-Star pencil pouch. I would try to steer away from the ninety-cent notebooks along with the fifteen-cent paper folders.

HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN BLOG DESIGN | CREATING THE PERFECT BlOG HEADER + POPULAR FONTS


















Hello Everyone | Eid Mubarak to everyone who celebrates it, even if you don't, Eid Mubarak anyways! Today, I am finally returning to you with long awaited 2nd edition to my blog designing series. If you missed the first post you can click here to read it. All it talks about is getting a nice base for your blog design so you can add on to it and make it unique!

Why do you want a nice blog header? // The blog header is the first thing a viewer sees when they come to your blog. If it is nice and noticeable people will be likely to read more of your blog. Like for example, Zoella has a killer blog header. Like, seriously, it is so eye-catching and really shows that if it is really she has a nice blog!

What are your resources to make a nice blog design? 
Adobe Photoshop CS6 // The king of all photo-editing services, used by photographers, graphic designers, bloggers, etc. It has so many tools that it really can make your blog header unique! Downside it is like $500 dollars to get the program. I have it, but ask around people you to see if anyone is willing to let you borrow and install the program. If not, its okay because we have other options. A lot of people torrent it to get it for free, but your will have to ask your computer geniuses for that

Gimp // Photoshop knockoff, which is totally free to download on the internet! I used to use it a long time ago before Photoshop. I don't remember how it works, but you can try. I wanted to use this today, but I had trouble downloading the software. Practically, Gimp is like Photoshop, but Photoshop runs much smoother. I highly suggest you download this if you can't get Photoshop.

Pixelmator // It is said to be better than Gimp at normal photo touch ups, but it is from Apple. I have never tried it, but maybe it comes equipped on Apple computers. 

Pic Monkey // An online service where you can make a really basic blog header, a lot of people use it, but I do not because it can only do so much until the fonts and the colors get boring.

Paint // You used it as a kid, I used it as a to entertain myself during class. Simple, so not much you can do with it.

Before we can start designing we need a nice font to use for your blog header. Here are some very popular ones that a very nice. I took the liberty of giving you the link to them in the photo caption. All you have to do is download them from a font website and they should pop up in your font drop-down box in Photoshop, Gimp, Paint, Microsoft word. You can download fonts from websites like dafont.com and  fontspace.com, my personal favorites ^_^

Little warning- if you download the font to your computer and, let's say, you write a paper in word with that font. If you save it and try to open it on another computer your font will change, unless that font is downloaded on the computer. With that being said here are the fonts...

Powder Snow

Elf High Definition Powder | Target | $6.00























Hello Everyone | I am always on the hunt for the perfect powder for my skin. Having combination skin (acne, oily, dry, and dehydrated) can make it hard to find a powder that combats shine without removing natural oils that help keep skin nourished. If they are gone, my skin begins to look cakey and dry. Previously, I have been using colored powders to set my face, which don't exactly suit my skin. That is why I finally picked up this powder by ELF.
