One Shirt… Three looks

I don’t know about you, but I always have the hardest time putting outfits together. I’ll purchase a shirt or pants and wear it the exact same way every time. Well, I’ve made it my personal goal to learn how to style myself! My first item up was these pants I purchased a while ago and couldn’t find anything to wear them with.

I went on the hunt to our local outdoor Fashion Square and I found this clothing boutique called Nadya’s Closet. This place is adorable! It was filled with all of my favorite types of pieces. The amazing thing was they had this shirt paired with similar pants as mine. So I purchased the shirt and the bracelet and viola! It completed the look I was going for so perfectly!

Sunset Eyeshadow Makeup Look

Hello Beautiful!

This past weekend my family and I went to Marshall’s to pick up some beauty blenders for my makeup kit. I always like to browse the makeup section while I’m there to see if I find any gems.

This was my lucky day! I scored some #MORPHExJaclynHill palettes for $7.99!!! I was super stoked! I also got a few MAC lipsticks for $7.99 each.

The first Morphe palette I used was Ring the Alarm. It’s a beautiful rich red and brown, warm toned palette. Right up my alley!

I died when I saw this! It even comes with a mirror inside which is a huge plus!

Here’s a pic of the makeup look I created with it and a list of all the products at I used is below.

My son picks my makeup! Vlog style

The adventures of Aaron and mom shopping at Target! I know… so exciting right? Haha. Well it was exciting for me! In this episode of my kid picks my makeup, Aaron chooses a beautiful palette by Maybelline and a crazy wild color palette. I can’t wait to try them both out.

Stick around for this 3 part series. I’ll be swatching and testing out the 2 palettes he got me. Which one should I showcase first?

By the way, he was so excited about that Coca Cola lip smacker. That excitement immediately turned into regret when he realized (or so he thought) it was a “lipstick”. LOL!

Date night makeup look | Smokey Eyes

Hello Beauties!!

Did you miss me!? I know, I know… it’s been a hot minute since I’ve been on here. I took some time off and now I’m super excited to get back into the blogging game.

So this year has been a little crazy. Wouldn’t you agree? Amidst all the chaos of 2020, my husband and I celebrated our 12 year wedding Anniversary. If you ask me, it came at the perfect time! It fell on the weekend that our city opened back up from the Covid lockdown. Hallelujah!! Our most favorite restaurant (Larsen’s Grill) was open for business and taking reservations. So, of course it was necessary to have a much-needed dinner date night!

I love doing a full face of glam when we go out on a date. So I thought I would share the look I created. If you make it to the end you’ll also see all of the mouth watering yumminess that we ate!

Eye Brow Tutorial | Anastasia Beverly Hills

20130816-160553.jpg

Hello Beauties!

Today I’m bringing you a brow tutorial using all Anastasia Beverly Hills products. I am really impressed with her products, so I hope you find this useful.

Here are the steps to achieve the look:

1.) Tweeze any stray hairs with the Anastasia tweezers and brush out the brow.
2.) To get a clean edge, line the bottom of your brow with the matte side of the brow duality pencil.
3.) Take the brow pen (mine is in universal deep) and start filling in the brow leaving the inner most part blank. (You can use light stokes to fill in that section if desired.)
4.) With the angled brush, dab it into the lighter color in the brow powder duo (mine is in brunette) and use this to lightly fill in the front of the brow. Also, with the matte side of the brow duality pencil, line the upper brow to give it a clean edge.
5.) Blend the top and bottom brow duality pencil lines with your finger or a brush.
6.) Set all the hairs in place with the clear brow gel.

All finished!!

Till the next one lovelies!
Laugh Often & Love always!
