Spring Forward: Whimsical



I was so excited to play with this palette that I almost forget to take a few pictures!  I can picture myself wearing a beige maxi and using the warm copper and deeper brown to compliment the dress. I've always avoided warm eyeshadows shades because I felt they didn't complete my skin tone but these shades look so glamorous on my fair skin and brown eyes. I can't describe how happy I was to try something new (my parent's credit card wasn't as excited). These colors are so girly and pretty, I just couldn't resist. bareMinerals True Romantic

Soft Radiance

This video was filmed in Paris, edited on a plane flying over Spain and uploaded in Portugal. I'm currently writing this in between coats of mascara as I'm just about to head out the door for dinner!

April Base

April Base 3
April is the month we perfect our everyday makeup routine to include dewy skin and a rosy glow. Nars Sheer Glow foundation has become a cult product for all "NARSissists". This product has a medium coverage but with the natural, radiant finish, the look is kept light and healthy. The formula is hydrating which is another reason it made an appearance in my beauty bag this month. Guerlain Crazy Pearls Illuminating powder is what gives this girl her iconic glow. The combination of colors create a subtle pearly finish designed to light up the face. If there is one thing you buy this month, it better be this! Don't forget about the lips... I am currently adoring the look of a moisturizing lip balm with a little color as it reads sophisticated but ever so glamorous. 

What new products have you been wearing?

Trend Forecast: The Minimalistic Cat Eye


What do you think of this upcoming trend? Is it IN or OUT? For the most part, I see this trend staying on the catwalk, however, I think some confident makeup lovers might incorporate a similar shape! 

Thoughts?

Pretty and Polished Drugstore Spring Lips


(L'oreal L'extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick)

I'm so glad to have a bright pink and peachy nude added to my makeup collection. Thanks to L'oreal and many other affordable brands, we have many of these lipgloss-lipstick hybrids to choose from. Liquid lipstick is applied to the lips to add color and shine just like a traditional tube lipstick, except, it's applied with a wand or a fingertip. Say hello to the new generation of portable, more subtle, lip products. They might be the perfect product for an on-the-go girl who still wants to be glamorous. 

What's your take on the new fad?
