My Everyday Makeup Look

I always make posts about my current favorite clothing pieces, but I wanted to share a few of my must have beauty products. These are my go-to products and when put together it is my go-to makeup look for the day. I have used each of these pretty much daily and while I have tried other products these are my necessities. I listed all of the colors as well that go with my skin tone!

Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer – Golden Neutral $28

I love this foundation because it goes on smoothly and has great coverage without being heavy or cakey. It covers up everything but is very light! It is hands down my favorite foundation I have ever used!

Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade – Dark Brown $18

I am so not good with brow pencils! I have tried so many brow products but this one was the easiest to use! I use an Anastasia Beverly Hills eyebrow brush to apply the pomade and it really stays well!

Lorac Baked Satin Blush – Velvet Rope $10

I have used this blush forever! I also love dandelion by Benefit Cosmetics, but this shade really goes well and is not over bearing. I think I have more orangey undertones and this shade really compliments that.

Two Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer – Medium to Deep $30

This bronzer literally smells like chocolate. Need I say more?

Carli Bybel Palette By BH Cosmetics $21

I use the top colors of this palette for my eyeshadow (mostly the bronze-y brown) and the bottom left highlighter to highlight my cheeks and nose. I use the other colors as well but those two are my favorite products.

Sephora Long Lasting Eyeliner – Black $12

Long lasting Liquid eyeliner is a must. I love this one, honestly I do not use too much eyeliner, just a simple black line is perfect for my everyday look.

Ruffle Sweaters

Not only is pink my favorite color, but most shades of pink look great on my skin tone. Feminine pieces like this are definitely my favorite, and the ruffles are definitely my favorite part. I am such a girly girl that I just knew as soon as I saw this sweater that I had to have it! Between the color and the sleeves it was a must! I love how well it goes with the denim and the top is not long enough to cover up my behind so I did not want to wear it with leggings or jeans. I just love these booties as well so I love any excuse to wear them.

Here are a few of my favorite sweaters with ruffles for you to check out

Statement Pieces : Leather

My favorite part about making an outfit is a statement piece. I honestly just look for statement pieces whenever I shop and then throw some basics on with it to compliment it. Whether it be embroidered denim, a flashy clutch, or thigh highs, there should always be a main piece. It is easy to spot a main piece because it is the part of the outfit you know will get the most compliments. That is how I judge whether a piece is cute enough is if it is something people do not often see. Leather is definitely one of those materials that is usually a great statement piece!

Can we just talk about this skirt for a sec? Like not only is it the perfect faux leather, but I am obsessed with the ruffles! The ruffles add a feminine touch which I am definitely all about! I love it and I cannot get enough ruffles! Also, the way the dress flaps over at the front is one of my favorite features as well. This look went well with a plain gray tee and booties which are my basic pieces to compliment my statement piece. Having too many statement pieces in one outfit can get to gaudy or take away the attention from the other piece, a good mix is everything!

My Favorite Fall Trends

Happy Monday Loves!

As a little break from all of the outfit posts, I’m sharing some of my favorite trends this fall. Of course there are cardigans and cute fall hats that come up every year. A flannel or two is of course a must, but some of the current trends for this season have caught my eye. I’m also thinking of making a similar post for some of these items for splurge or steal, so let me know in the comments if that’s something you would like to see!

 

Ankle Boots

I just bought these exact shoes but in a similar color and I am totally in love! It took me a while to buy a pair honestly because I was not too sure how they would look on me, but the extra height of the material looked awesome! They are so chic and can really dress up an outfit. I bought these from Steve Madden (of course) and I received so many compliments on them! View the post HERE.

Vests/Dusters

Dusters are something that are definitely a statement piece. While dusters are not a piece for someone like me because I am too short, they are definitely a great piece for fall. Long vests are also something that I am kind of into right now, I’m just not sure they are something I can pull off. BUT a great nude or light pink is just my style.

Ripped Denim

I am obsessed with a perfectly ripped pair of jeans right now! A good slightly slouchy pair with an over sized sweater and I fall in love. These are from Showpo, and while I am used to buying almost everything online, the perfect pair of jeans need to be tried on to see if it fits exactly how you want them to.

Bell Sleeves and Ruffles

I was going to find a sweater with either just ruffles or just bell sleeves, then I found this one & I had to show it! I’m not too crazy about the color, however I do love the piece itself. Pairing this with a cute jean skirt or just jeans and booties, you’ll definitely be set.

Sweater Dresses

I just featured my off the shoulder sweater dress in one of my latest posts (linked in ankle boots) and I cannot be more in love! Honestly it kept me warm and I was comfy enough to walk around without worrying about it coming up or looking too frumpy. Honestly dresses are such a great go-to because they are easy to throw on and look great and a sweater dress is no exception! A darker color is of course perfect far Fall and would even look great for Winter.

Purple and Pumpkins

Happy late Halloween! Halloween may be over but the pumpkin season has just begun! I love the cold weather and the fall colors, orange, yellow, and brown oh my! As for my wardrobe, fall brings many mustard yellows, army greens, and maroon for days! I love how each season brings a new reason to wear a new color. Whether it be bright for Summer, or muted for Winter there are so many unique colors to wear that you never have to wear the same thing.

I admittedly found this sweater dress on another bloggers site. I fell in love and had to have it! The color just looks great on my skin tone I think and the simple gold details are my fave! I cannot get enough of this outfit because not only was it super cute but it kept me warm as well! The booties are comfy too and I so love the ankle boots trend!
