“Dia de los Reyes” Look of the Night

Last night to celebrate “El Dia de los Reyes” I wore our new peach romper. Since it’s more of a S/S piece, I decided to wear black opaque tights and my all time favorite leather jacket from Zara. It makes it more wearable during winter. This was the first time since I was very young that we celebrated this occasion. I remember being very excited to place my shoe by the door the night before and to wake up with a present right next to it in the morning (this one time we got a bike!). Later on the day we would typically head over to my uncles house to cut the rosca. Who ever cut the piece with the baby inside would then host a dinner for the family soon after. Since I loved it when I was young, I thought it would be a great tradition to start with Izek.

How I Contour and Highlight

contour before and after
It’s no secret that I love to highlight and contour. I enjoy the precess because I can achieve a slimmer, healthier look overall. I love that I can bring back color to my face, especially now during winter that my skin tone is a shade lighter than it regularly is. I also included in this post all the dupes to some of my higher end products. I always alternate between brands because I’m a firm believer that you can recreate any look no matter what your budget is. Just go out there and have fun! Enjoy my tutorial!
