I Have News !!??

Screen Shot 2015-10-26 at 9.59.35 AM

Hello, newbies and Candela Couture veterans, today I am sharing some very exciting news to all my readers. I have decided to start adding videos to Candela Couture. For the past four years, the support has been incredible, incredible, incredible, and it’s definitely time to give something new to the passionate subscribers! I just hit 200,000 unique visitors this year, and I am beyond stoked about this! I don’t want you guys to feel like you don’t know me, and only see my reviews, or my favorites products, and what not. I want you to interact with me and tour my dorm, and see what I do on lazy days, and learn how I compose my posts. I want everyone to take something different from the experience on my website. 

I will be using Vimeo to post videos onto Candela Couture. I have been getting many request to start a YouTube Channel, but there are many personal reasons why I have decided to opt out of that specific route. I want the videos to be genuine, and not have anything to do with views, or likes and such. If I decide that Vimeo is too difficult to operate, ill find an alternative. 

I will be posting weekly videos starting November 1st. The videos will only be found on Candela Couture. Some videos will be sponsored, and some videos will just be daily vlogs, opinionated rants, or fashion cookbooks. 

I want people to let me know what they want to see. I know it’s not always excited to read an article about beauty products, so i want to make this as entertaining as possible. 

I hope everyone is having an amazing day!! Tweet, or instagram me what you want to see in my videos!

XOXO,

MJC

Instead of being that girl who only wears cat ears and a tube dress, or wraps caution tape around her body (95% of the population of females), this year I have decided to experiment with my halloween costume and go all out! I am going to share with you my halloween costume options from my favorite online store, Shein.com !! You can help me decide which option is the coolest!

Screen Shot 2015-10-15 at 8.04.22 PM

This is probably the most unique costume idea! All of these pieces are found on shein !!

Screen Shot 2015-10-15 at 8.02.21 PMMy favorite items from the boho/Pocahontas costume options are the:

Grey Tassel Skirt 

Mini Lace Up Pocket Dress

Apricot High Heels

Screen Shot 2015-10-15 at 9.36.24 PM

Option two is for more of a hipster ! The school girl look is very easy to pull of with staples from your closet, and items from Shein!

Screen Shot 2015-10-16 at 1.00.42 AM

I would definitely love to be a school girl because its cute,flirty, and easy! Here are my favorite pieces from Shein!

Contrast Zipper Coat

Black Pleated Skirt

Red Thick Vintage Platforms 

Screen Shot 2015-10-16 at 1.19.41 AM

My third and final option is a great idea for you if you want to be comfortable; A hippie! You can go very simple, or all out with this one! 

Screen Shot 2015-10-16 at 1.44.31 AM

This is definitely the girliest costume! The heels could be worn to a more formal event, and booties or cute sneakers to a casual party! Here are my favorite items from shein!

Multicolor Long Sleeve Vintage Dress 

Black Fashion Hat

Gold butterfly Heels

My Favorite Fall Shopping Spot

Screen Shot 2015-10-12 at 9.02.25 PM

October is here and it’s officially time to trade short shorts for suede pants and V-necks for turtle-necks. This is by far my favorite season of the year; I already stalked up on my suede skirts and leather jackets. Unfortunately, it is still 105 degrees in california. Here is my favorite affordable place to shop for winter wonders

My September Favorites – Beauty

September is one of those transitioning months, where you’re longing the summer heat and beach days but awaiting the winter cold and hot drinks. I ALWAYS await winter, so September is the appointed month where I prepare for the leather jackets and booties, hair products, and snow days. This month I had an absurd amount of favorites, so I will break it down into three posts.

My one monthly favorite would have to be the Hoola Bronzer by Urban DecayThe matte bronzer is the perfect orange brown, not too spray-tan, and not to rubbed-mud-all-over-my-cheeks. It’s matte so the application looks extremely natural and goes with so many skin tones. The brush also is great for contouring.

Screen Shot 2015-10-07 at 9.04.01 AM

I definitely tried products this month I did not enjoy. First, I bought the Urban Decay Baked Illuminating Powder; The first time I tried it, my best friend laughed as she walked through the door and asked if I dropped glitter all over my face. I looked in the mirror and I was one big sparkle. Its not subtle at all and has no real purpose.

Screen Shot 2015-10-07 at 9.11.33 AM

I also did not like the Nars Stick Concealer in Custard. I usually use the Nars liquid concealer, but wanted something a bit thicker for my under eyes. Unfortunately, this does not do the trick. It creases and does not cover anything but a few minor discolorations.Screen Shot 2015-10-07 at 9.12.19 AM I recommend the Bobbi Brown Concealer Duo I just purchased. I will review this product soon when I use it a bit more.

MAC COSMETICS REVIEW – Taupe Lipstick, Honey Love Lipstick , Oak Lip Liner

Screen Shot 2015-09-21 at 3.03.55 PMAs some of you may have noticed from the flood of selfies on my snapchat or instagram, I am once again falling in deep love with makeup experimenting! I finally decided to try wearing lipstick, and I am LOVING IT!! Today, I am going to share a couple of my new favorite MAC COSMETICS products for the fall!

Here are the 3 lip products I want to share with you!

This matte lipstick from Mac Cosmetics has one of the best applications I’ve tried from this line! Matte lipsticks tend to crease and chunk easily due to the dry and packed pigmentation; I was extremely surprised from the smoothness!

This color is very similar to Nars Bahama, but it is definitely more matte!

I recommend using a lip treatment before using ANY matte lipstick. Because there is minimal shine, all cracks and dry patches are basically exposed.

Here is my look wearing Taupe!

This color is the PERFECT pinky nude color. Sometimes, nude colors can completely wash a face out, not Honey Love. The matte lipstick definitely needs a lipliner though!

*If you have lighter skin, you can probably go a bit more nude with High Tea by MAC

This is the Mac Cosmetics Lip Liner in Oak. Similar shades are:

Urban Decay Stark Naked, Smashbox Sienna

Here is how I paired Honey Love and Oak!
