Makeup Dupe Wednesday: 3/30 | Ruby & Neena

Hi, guys! Today we have another Makeup Dupe Wednesday. This week’s dupe is hair products! The brands we’ll be talking about are Aveeno and Philip B. Let’s get into!

If your hair is damaged or dry, then Philip B. shampoos and conditioners are amazing but also very expensive. We love this Aveeno dupe! Both of these brands are very nourishing and will work to hydrate your hair.

Philip B. Products

Aveeno Products:

That’s it, guys! We’re sorry for the short post but the MDW posts are short since we basically just talk about products that do the same but are at different prices. We’ll see you next time!

Love,

Neena & Ruby

Spring Haul 2016 | Neena

Hi, everyone! Today I have my haul for spring of 2016. I pretty much went to all the usual stores. You know Zara, Victoria’s Secret, etc? Let’s get into the haul! It’s pretty long. :)

Victoria’s Secret:
The first thing I got was a bralette. The bralette is just a really light pink color like a blush color and it has lace. I also got a nice silk hot pink robe.

Marc Jacobs:
From Marc Jacobs, I got a new wallet. The wallet is black on the outside and baby pink on the inside. I am literally in love with it. Everything that I need can fit inside. It fits in my crossbody purses. It’s literally wallet goals. :)

Forever 21:
The first thing that I got from Forever 21 was a cropped black tank top. I also got two bralettes. They both are the same style. They are just in different colors. The first one is black and the second one is in white. The backs  are so cool. I love wearing bralettes. They are just so comfy and they go with everything. The last thing I got from Forever 21 was just a plain old white racerback tank top.

Zara:
The first thing from Zara is a white tee. You can never go wrong with one. It’s kind of see-through so I will wear a tank top underneath. The next thing I got was a black v-neck. V-neck shirts are amazing. They look good with everything. The last thing I got was a olive colored top. It’s shorter in the front and longer in the back.

That’s it! Maybe you guys might buy some of the pieces I talked about above. Maybe not. Let me know if you would like more hauls. We would love to do more hauls. We pretty much go shopping a lot. and I’ll see you next time!

Love,

Neena

Makeup Dupe Wednesday: 3/23

Hey, guys! Today we have another Makeup Dupe Wednesday for you all! This week’s dupe is brushes! For this dupe we will be talking about brushes from MAC and Sigma. Let’s get into it!

MAC brushes are amazing but also very expensive. We love these Sigma alternatives! Both of these brands carry soft, dense, and quality brushes, but the Sigma brushes are much more affordable.

Pencil Brush:

Tapered Blending Brush:

Large Powder Brush:

Large Angled Contour Brush:

That’s all!  We hope this helped! Make sure to look out for the next “Makeup Dupe Wednesday”! We’ll see you next time!

Hi, guys! This post is my March Q&A. Neena’s will be up soon so stay tuned for that. Let’s get into!

Q: Do you have any pets?
A: Sadly I don’t. I wish we had a dog but we don’t. :(

Q: Do you play any sports?
A: I don’t think this counts as a sport but I do bhangra. It’s a type of punjabi dance. It’s so much fun.

Q: Why did you start this blog?
A: We started this blog because we wanted to share our love of fashion and beauty with the world. It’s fun blogging. Getting that feeling of accomplishment when we publish a post.

Q: What do you want to be when you are older?
A: I want to be a patient representative so go into the customer care field. I love helping people so this job would be perfect for me.

Q: Do the kids at your school know about your blog?
A: They do. Neena is on the journalism staff and I’m the TA for that class They wrote a story about our blog for the newspaper. Obviously Neena couldn’t write the article since she works on this blog. So basically that article is how people got to learn about our blog and obviously our friends knew about it already.

Q: When did you start wearing makeup and what did you wear?
A: I started wearing a little bit of makeup in either 6th or 7th grade. I don’t remember. I think the first makeup product I ever wore was lip gloss. Yup. Definitely lip gloss.

Q: What is your favorite makeup product that you can’t live without?
A: I can’t live without lip balm. I ain’t about that chapped lips life. :)

Q: What shoe size do you wear?
A: I wear a 4 or 4&1/2. I know. I have small feet haha. It depends on the shoe.

That’s it guys! I hoped you guys enjoyed reading this and I’ll see you next time.

Makeup Dupe Wednesday: 3/16/16

Hi, guys! We’re trying something new. Makeup Dupe Wednesday. We were actually originally going to do it on Mondays but we couldn’t wait until next Monday to get the first one up for you guys so we thought we should just do it on Wednesdays.

Makeup Dupe Wednesday is where we focus on a particular part of the face so like eyebrows which is actually this week’s dupe. We tell you guys about a high-end product which you can splurge on and then we talk about a drugstore product which you guys obviously afford. If you ever fell in love with a product but can’t commit to such an expensive product, then Makeup dupe Wednesdays are for you! We’re here to help you.

Now let’s get into it!

This week’s dupe is eyebrows. The splurge is the Anastasia Dipbrow. The steal is the NYX Tame & Frame. We love this dupe! Perfectly filled and shaped brows add structure to the face and are essential in creating any flawless makeup look. The Anastasia Dipbrow is AMAZING -- as you all probably have heard! This NYX dupe has a similar consistency and formula and is much more affordable.

We hoped you guys enjoyed reading this and we hope it was very helpful.

Love,
Ruby & Neena
