I have never and will never be a makeup girl. I wear it on occasion with the limited knowledge I have, but it has never been a talent of mine and I'm very okay with that. However, there is one element to makeup that really gets me excited: liquid lipstick. I just feel like it's a really easy and fun way to make a simple look your own.

I kind of became obsessed with purchasing liquid lipsticks this summer and I have come up with my top five favorite brands for y'all to enjoy with me.

5. Jordana Sweet Cream Matte Liquid Lip Color

Shade pictured: Red Velvet Cake.

Kate Tayler

Price: $5, easily purchased

Color variety: 26 shades in many different colors

Last: Perfect for a night out, but comes off while eating and drinking

This lipstick was my favorite for a while, but I've found some more expensive ones that stay on longer and nicer. However, the price of this lipstick is absolutely unbeatable and has pretty decent quality for what it's worth.

​4. Focallure Matte Lips

Shade pictured: Wine.

Kate Tayler

Price: $8-$15

Color variety: 63 shades in matte and metallic options

Last: Stays on for a while, but incredibly messy when first applied.

I ordered this online and it took 18 long years to get here, but it turned out to be a pretty good purchase. It wasn't terribly expensive and looks pretty nice on and stays for a while. Definitely a solid purchase.

​3. Lipsense by SeneGence Long Lasting Liquid Lip Color

Lipstick shade: Napa. Lip gloss shade: Rose.

Kate Tayler

Price: $20+ for color and gloss

Color variety: 65 shades of lipstick, 14 glosses

Last: Takes an act of God to take it off

This is harder to come by as you have to purchase Lipsense from a distributor, but you can find one on the website. This stays on for 5ever, but you need the gloss and lipstick for it to work. This is definitely on the pricier side in terms of lipstick, but it looks nice and stays on pretty well too.

2. Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick

Shade pictured: Soft lilac.

Kate Tayler

Price: $20 a tube

Color variety: 45 shades, but some shades are frequently out of stock

Last: Very long-lasting!

This is the smoothest liquid lipstick I own. I got it in a BOGO deal and it was worth every penny. You definitely get your money's worth from this product and I would definitely recommend. The only reason this didn't get #1 is because you do need to reapply almost all of it if you eat with it on.

​1. Gerard Cosmetics Hydra-Matte Liquid Lipstick

Shade pictured: 1995.

Kate Tayler

Price: $8-$15

Color variety: 30 shades

Last: I ate two entire sushi rolls and this boi hardly had to be reapplied.

I absolutely love the quality of this lipstick for the price. It looks great, stays on forever, and is really fairly priced. This lipstick is the best and there's no topping it.

Ladies, Nike Shorts And Leggings Are For The Gym, Nowhere Else

If you are becoming a grown woman, you need to dress like one.

Every night, I spend one hour preparing myself for the following day.

I start with a shower, usually after I workout (I like to shower up to three times a day). I, then, massage my face with an exfoliate or cleansing brush, followed by a mask, usually a sheet or charcoal, or occasionally a hair mask. While my mask is drying, I pick out my outfit, usually a balance of comfy and trendy for the morning (and usually two others backup outfits). After I was my mask off and end the night with yoga, I slump into an 8-hour slumber until I wake up and work out again.

Yes, I know I have a problem. You couldn’t find a more vain or egotistical person in this world that could trump my inflated head. I may have a slight vanity problem, but I feel that my vanity outweighs the laziness of just not caring.

Ladies, it’s time to grow up.

It’s time to take off those leggings, ratty high school football T-shirts, and neon orange Nike shorts, and put on some big girl panties (not just the frilly hot pink VS kind). Having attended a private school for most of my life, I was shocked when I saw how people dressed to school, as if they were about to run laps in between periods. High school can’t even compare to the fashion monstrosities I see at school: the formals shirts, Nike Shorts, White Converse that look like they have seen one too many frat parties, yet with faces stilled caked with chunky mascara and sloppy brows. These outfits were not only sported in classes and social events but also philanthropy events and job shifts!

Ladies, I understand life is uncomfortable. Period weeks leave you feeling five months pregnant and on the verge of crying because your jeans are pinching your bloated stomach. I understand that it’s hard to juggle gym, class, sports, and a healthy sex and social life. But you can try harder. You can do so much better than what you have going on right now. Jeans need to be worn instead of leggings. Nike shorts and ratty T-shirts belong at the gym. End of story.

My mother would coo to me, as she put barrettes in my hair before school, that “in order to feel successful, you must look successful”. Every final exam, presentation, discussion, speech, class president election, swim team banquet, I would be dressed in my business suit and men’s oxfords. I dress for the success I wanted to have. If you want to be treated like a grown ass woman, you have to act (and dress) like one too. My life example is a little radical; I do not think you should pour yourself into how you look, because you will just exhaust yourself. Throw on a pair of jeans or an easy dress to class. Wear that sweet polyester suit. Dress up just to feel confident and successful in your day to come, not just your coming career.

Feel beautiful every day, just save the leggings for lazy days (or better yet, wear nothing at all).

10 Beauty Products That Will Never Let You Down

Ten beauty products to begin this year on a good note.

I started wearing makeup in seventh grade, and I'm just getting to the point where I'm above average. I'm too scared to do anything adventurous because I know it'll end badly. Ever since then, I've found some items that help me look like I know what I'm doing.

1. Urban Decay-Eyeshadow Primer Potion - $13

This primer is the like the superwoman of all eyelid primers. I've been using it since my sophomore year of high school and it has never let me down once. I could probably run a marathon and my eyeshadow would still be in place, this primer is so good.

2. Thrive Mascara - $24

I have naturally long eyelashes and sometimes mascara can be a struggle. I was using a different mascara for several years that I loved it, but it was a pain to get off of my eyelashes. I took a chance and bought this mascara this summer and have never looked back. Not only does it give me the best volume but it comes off in tubes like fake eyelashes. I will probably never buy a different mascara again.

3. Mario Bedescu-Facial Spray with Aloe, Chamomile and Lavender - $12

There aren't enough words to describe how great this product is. Not only does it smell like lavender fairies are kissing me but it's also such a versatile product. I've it as a refresher after a long day and as a setting spray to make my makeup look more natural.

4. The Balm- Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter - $24

I was first introduced to this highlighter when I wore it for my senior prom. I loved the look of it so much that I texted the person who did my makeup because I had to get it for myself. It's a perfect combination of natural and KAPOW. It's subtle but noticeable at the same time.

5. Becca First Light Primer - $38

It smells just as amazing as it looks. I like this primer because it's not heavy on my skin and just feels like a second layer of lotion. I use this as a primer and as a tinted moisturizer when I am not feeling foundation and it gives my skin a healthy glow.

6. Aveeno Positively Nourishing Calming Body Lotion - $5.74

If I had to smell one thing for the rest of my life, it would be this. Its so calming and I think I would put it all over my body if I could. As my roommate said one time "it smells so nice."

7. Micro Beauty Blenders - $7

When I would use a big beauty blender for concealer it would get all over my face instead of where I wanted it to be. This beauty blender has been a God-send and has made applying concealer so much easier.

8. Colourpop Give To Me Straight Eyeshadow Palette - $16

This eyeshadow palette is not only the cheapest palette I've ever bought but it gives me so many options too. From innocent pinks to matte Rosie colors, I can always find a good combination in this palette.

9. Real Techniques Blend + Blur All Over Brush - $19

Blending is a real struggle with me and sometimes a beauty blender can miss a few mistakes. This brush is not only easy to use but it helps create an even and finished look when I need those last little touch ups.

10.  Wet Brush - $13.99

My hair can be extremely tangled at times and this brush makes it seem like I'm brushing through butter. I use it with wet or dry hair and I never feel like I'm damaging my hair and making the tangles worse.
