My Many Faces

Today’s post is a one that I had a lot of fun doing in the midst of filming a makeup tutorial for the look I have on. I hope you’re all having an amazing day by the way. We just stayed home and relaxed. I did a major makeup room clean up and organization, while searching for more beauty products to gift out for my ‘Subscriber Appreciation Give-a-way’ happening all month long! So please make sure to follow me on social media to stay aware of the random giftings I’ll be having. Just a little something I wanted to do to say THANK YOU for all the love and support on this journey!

Take care and have a great day! XO

Outfit of the Day: The Midi Skirt

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m especially excited about fall this year. So many appealing trends to make your own. One of them this season that I’m really taking a huge affection toward to are skirts, “midi’ skirts in particular. The silhouette is romantically reminiscent of 40s graceful glamor. I just love the elegance this look emanates to a certain degree of comfort and all just by the length.

Outfit of the Day: Retro Vibes

I’m actually loving this romper more than I thought. I picked it up at American Apparel just a few weeks ago. What intrigued me at first, were the retro vibes I got from the color of the stripes. Doesn’t it feel vintage to you? It’s a combination of colors that I don’t wear too often, so I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to pull it off. After I tried it on,it was just a matter of styling it with the right accessories that made this look feel more me. So I paired it with my freshly worn red wedges by Prabal Gurung for Target and minimal jewelry.

Moms: The place where my husband took these pictures was at Travel Town Railroad in Griffith Park and I really recommended it for a fun afternoon with your kids that delivers free fun. Unless you want to ride the train and grab a cold pop, hot dogs, and water, but that’s still under $20! Izek really enjoyed it :)

New Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Lacquer + Always Sharp Lip Liners w/ OOTD

Hey guys! Today I bring to you a fashion and beauty post!
Smashbox recently released a new collection of lip products including the Be Legendary Long-Wear Lip Lacquer and the Always Sharp Lip Liners. I swatched a few of my favorites here on the blog, but there’s definitely a lot more shades for you guys to choose from. I wanted you guys to see the pigmentation. In this post, I’m currently rocking the ‘Violet’ lip liner completely filled in (which gives you a nice matte finish) topped of with the “After Dark’ lip lacquer to deepen up the look.
One thing I’ve never seen before on a lip liner that was pretty interesting, was the built it sharpener (which you can’t even see) that always keeps your liner sharp! It’s a small detail that makes a huge difference on those days when we don’t want to fondle through our make-up drawers looking for a sharpener. I really loved that! It’s inside the cap and sharpens when you twist the lip liner on and off.

Also, a good cause in effect right now is the “Create a Gif, Give a Gift” campaign in which Smashbox will donate a product to for every gif that’s created to the Look Good Feel Better, an organization dedicated to making
people who are undergoing treatment for cancer look and feel better.
You Can create your own Gif here!
Can’t wait to see it!

And just as a brief over-view, I wanted to give you guys my first initial impression.

6. Smashbox Always Sharp Lip Liner ‘Frenchie’+ Be Legendary Long-wear Lip Lacquer ‘Lilac’

For this outfit it all started out with the faux leather pleated skirt that I wear at least once every fall season. I wanted to have a few subtle contrasts in this look, which is why I went with a sweater material cropped top that had graphics all over it and a diamond incrested necklace. I then paired it with my trusted and ever so comfortable laced up heels and a bright red bag for a pop of color! Last but not least, I added a dark lip as my final accessories for this look. It gives it a sort of gothic- chic vibe with out being over the top and I loved it. That’s one thing I love about fall, the dark lips start to come out!
