Never Enough Blush

IMG_7679So far this year, each of my outfit posts has contained the color blush.  I didn’t really plan it that way but it’s my favorite color to wear and I think I got a little overly excited about rose quartz being the color of the year.  It’s definitely been my color of the year, at least for January 😉

Hope this first month of the year has been a great one for you!

Winter White & Blush

IMG_7486I obviously love blush any time of year, but I also love white for winter because it looks so clean and fresh.  An easy way to put an outfit together if you don’t have much time is to wear a monochromatic outfit and top it off with a colorful coat for a chic, effortless look.

Hope you enjoy!

Blush & Burgundy

IMG_7183I really love the color combination of blush and burgundy.  Its not a combo you would normally see together, but I think they go really well.  But of course, I think blush goes with everything 😉   I’m really late to the whole midi ring trend but I’m loving this set I found at Kohls.  I just love how simple and delicate they are, and you know I can’t resist rose gold!

Hope your new year is off to a great start!

Favorite Beauty Products of 2015

IMG_6998Today I want to share some of my favorite beauty products from last year.  These are things that I liked to use for the majority of 2015 and couldn’t live without!

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

IMG_6992

This mascara is amazing!  In mascara I usually look for something to add a little length and a lot of volume.  I actually kinda like my lashes to be a little clumpy!  The wand is a very chubby, hourglass shaped brush that adds tons on volume and the blackest black pigment.  It’s easily buildable to get the thickest lashes possible and the pretty pink packaging just makes it that much better!

Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

IMG_6993

To me, eyeshadow primers are a must.  They help to prolong the wear time of your shadows and prevent creasing.  I have normal skin, but for some reason my eyelids are super oily so I really need a primer that will not only help my eyeshadow stay on all day, but also keep my lids matte and that’s just what this does.  This one has no color and goes on completely clear, so I love wearing it even if I’m not wearing eyeshadow, just to keep my eyelids from getting oily.

Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Tint-In-Oil

IMG_6994

I’m really not a fan of lip gloss.  I much prefer lipstick or even a balm, but that all changed when I received a sample of this one from YSL.  That may be because its really not a gloss, but an oil.  It feels like a really nice moisturizing oil.  It has a sheer tint that stains your lips and it also smells amazing!  I love love colors Cherry My Cherie 5, and Peach Me Love 6.

Essence Lip Liner, Satin Mauve

IMG_6995

I absolutely love how smooth, creamy, and pigmented this lip liner is, and the color is perfection!  Mauve was the hottest lip color of 2015 and I think I found the perfect shade with this lip pencil.  Its so smooth and creamy that I can fill in my entire lip with it not skipping or pulling and have a seamless application.  And if it can’t get any better, its under $2.00!

But it here!

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed, Champagne Pop

IMG_6996

Everyone talks about this highlighter, and for good reason.  Its a unique color compared to many highlighters with it being a light champagne with peachy undertones.  It really reminds me of MAC Melon Pigment which I love!  The application is so creamy and smooth and looks gorgeous on the top of your cheekbones or anywhere else you like to highlight.  I also love using it as an eyeshadow!  Its been out for a while, but it says its limited edition.  I would pick one up while you can!

MAC Eyeshadow, Saddle

IMG_6976

This is one of my favorite eyeshadows ever!  Its a warm, matte brown that I love to put in the crease and it pairs nicely with so many other colors.  Its a color that I can’t live without and I use it in most eyeshadow looks.  I love to pair it with Champagne Pop on the lid!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Powder, Havana

IMG_6997

I bought the Anastasia Contour Kit after I heard everyone raving about it but I ended up not loving it so much.  I use all of the colors occasionally on the face or eyes, but the only color I really love is Havana.  I love to use this color as a bronzer on the outer edges of my face.  Its matte but I love the warm tan it gives to my face.  It’s nicely pigmented and blends out easily.  I’m glad you can buy the colors individually because when I run out of Havana, I really don’t want to buy the whole kit.

Casual Winter

IMG_6963It was a super rainy day today so I had to hurry and snap some shots between the storms!  On rainy days I just don’t feel like putting a lot of effort into my outfit.  I want to look cute, but I also want to stay warm and dry!

I love faux leather leggings because they’re cute and comfortable, but they’re also really easy to throw on with a lot of different things and are more fun than regular leggings!  Paired with booties and a pretty scarf, its the perfect casual outfit for a day of running errands.
