LOTD: October 11, 2017

The only new product I’ve used in this look compared to my last post was the Fenty Foundation. I seem to be in the minority with this product…I love the shade range, but the foundation doesn’t really work for me. I’ve tried three different applications – with my fingers, with a beauty blender, and with a brush. The only one that worked remotely well was with a brush. The other two application types looked very patchy, and the rest of my makeup wouldn’t blend into it. Furthermore, no matter how much I set it, it transfers throughout the day if I even touch my face, and I’ve never had that problem before…even having oily skin. I’ve seen that this foundation also doesn’t work for dry skin, so I would really only recommend this foundation if you have normal skin. If you zoom in on my face, you can see it didn’t do a super great job covering my check blemishes, and I had even tried multiple layers as suggested. All in all, definitely not my cup of tea. IMG_1755.JPG

NOTW: OPI “Cement the Deal” 

I’ve been using exclusively gel colors for the past few months, so I decided to change it up on Friday. First, I primed my nails with a coat of Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Nourishing Nail Color. Then I applied two coats of “Cement the Deal” by OPI. Finally, I finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. I’m loving this shade as a transition into fall!

 

LOTD: September 30, 2017

I used a lot of new (to me) products in this look! I’ve really been having fun with this NYX palette lately. It has a great set of colors that combine to make a ton of beautiful looks. Another new product that I used in this look are the Too Faced Peach Perfect Foundation, which I really enjoyed using. It has a nice finish and is long-lasting. The NudeStix Concealer has about medium coverage but doesn’t blend super easily. Finally, Becca Champagne Pop is a beautiful highlight which I’ve been getting a lot of use out of since I purchased it.

Polyvore Monday: Can’t Stop the Feeling

This dress is absolutely stunning, and I think it would be perfect for a fancy date night. Because of the detailing on the dress, less is more when it comes to accessories. Those Christian Louboutin heels are gorgeous, and they make this outfit even more killer. The earrings are simple, yet elegant, and the Givenchy fragrance ties everything together.

Polyvore Monday: Back to School

When you’re a fashion major, everyone dresses to impress the first few weeks of school – sometimes even the whole semester! (If you’re in college, you’ll know how shocking this is.) Although usually I prefer to be a little more comfortable while going to class, I want to get dressed up for my last first day of class EVER.
I’m loving this classic black and white look, and the lipstick adds the perfect pop of color. The booties are stylish yet would still be suitable for walking to class. I adore the femininity of the lace paired with the ripped up jeans, and the leather backpack adds just a bit more edge. Finally, I had to give a shout out to my favorite designer – Oscar de la Renta – with the earrings.  Back to School
