Indie Flick, OOTD

I’ve been outrageously impatient for spring weather, there’s been more snow at the end of this winter than there has been the rest of winter, but thankfully it’s recently been warmer.

I love this skirt, my cousin bought it for me from H&M the last time we went shopping together. It’s a high waisted jersey midi skirt and it’s really comfortable to wear.

I adore this lipstick, it’s definitely going to be my go too color for spring. It’s a lovely color and it’s long lasting without being outrageously drying.

Summer FOTD

I decided to do my bog standard Summer FOTD for today’s post. I usually keep my makeup the same and only change something like my lipgloss or a blush as the seasons change, and I do the same thing every day, but sometimes it turns out better some days than other days. This was one of those days.

I’m wearing Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer, with Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. I kept my eye makeup really simple just using the champagne color from the Marc Jacobs Lolita Palette and I tightlined with Urban Decay’s Bourbon 24/7 liner. I finished my eyes with YSL’s Babydoll Mascara which is my absolute favorite for summer. On my cheeks is The Balms Frat Boy and then Mary Lou Manizer dusted lightly over that and applied more heavily as my highlighter. My lipgloss is Hourglasses Lush, which wasn’t my favorite when I bought them but it has become my favorite.

I like how light and simple this makeup is for summer, but honestly it’s just a really nice everyday look that could work easily in any season.

My shirt is from Sevenly’s Shelterwings Campaign, and the proceeds went to helping victims of domestic violence. My hair was curled with the Conair YouCurl Infiniti and brushed out the day before and all I did today was brush it and add a bit of dry shampoo.

What’s been your go to makeup for this summer?

Spring FOTD

I adore this makeup for spring, it feels so fresh and pretty. I’ve been wearing this look so much that I can put it on in under 15 minutes if I’m in a rush.

Stylish Sundays: Valentine

Since Friday was Valentines day, I thought I’d show you what I wore when we went out to dinner to celebrate, and what my present that I hinted about on instagram is.

First my present since I’m just dying over it still:

Fashion and Happy Things!   Stylish Sundays: Valentine

It’s the Kate Spade Cove Street Irini, and it’s absolutely perfect. I am obsessed with Kate Spade and have wanted a K.S. Purse for quite sometime. Since my husband noticed I’ve just been grabbing my wallet when I go out lately, he decided that this one would be perfect because it’s small and it’s a crossbody.

I love the lining because it’s brightly colored and makes grabbing anything an absolute breeze, which isn’t a problem right now because my wallet takes up most of the space, I need to get a smaller wallet, and I’ve already picked out a couple I’m in love with.

This is honestly the most perfect present I could ever ask for.

To dinner I wore:

On My Face: Nars Sheer Glow, Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, YSL Shocking Mascara, Caudalie Lip Balm, The Balm Frat Boy, The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer, The Balm Hot Mama worn as shadow, Lancome Brown Eyeliner, Lancome Metallic Taupe shadow

All said it was a lovely day. What did you do for Valentines?

 

The Balm Cosmetics Haul

I’ve been hearing good things about The Balm for awhile now, but I’m always hesitant¬† to buy anything that I’m not able to swatch. But I know that Miss Cannady loves Hot Mama and that Leighannsays is a big fan of their products so I decided to pick somethings up.

I picked up Hot Mama:

I couldn’t resist swatching before these photos were taken, so sorry about that. And Speaking of Swatches, I made sure to do a set of swatches for you guys.

I haven’t worn them yet, but I kinda really can’t wait too. It’ll be nice to wear something other than Deep Throat by Nars for a change. Because even though I’m pretty sure it’s my all time favorite, sometimes I just want something different.

I definitely want to get some eyeshadows from the Balm next, but I’m torn between Meet Matte Nude or Nude’Tude. Is there anything else you think I need to try from The Balm?
