Halloween Look

Hi all! Today I’m sharing with you the look that I created for Halloween this past weekend. I wore a flapper costume that I had purchased for a show that I was in a few years ago. So I went on YouTube to see if I can find a look that was fairly simple and quick at the same time. My inspiration behind this look was taken from Jaclyn Hill’s Old Hollywood Glam tutorial. I used what products I had on hand, and went to town hoping that I can do a good enough job.

Let’s start from the “bottom” up. Starting with Primer. After I cleansed and moisturized my face, I used the Hourglass Mineral Veil all over my face, excluding the T-zone. In my T-zone I used Benefit’s Porefessional.

August Favorites!

Today I am sharing with you my August favorites. These few items I have used constantly through out the month. For my birthday at the end of July, I received a Sephora gift card and I picked up a few items and haven’t put them down since!

Aug Faves2015

The Beauty Blender has by far been the greatest thing I picked up. I was previously using one that I got from Target. The Beauty Blender blows that one out of the water. I can’t believe I waited so long to get this. I apologize for it being dirty. I used it this morning totally forgetting I had to photograph it.

I don’t know about you girls, but liquid liner and winged out liner has always been difficult for me. I picked up the Kat Von D ink tattoo liner. I couldn’t be more impressed with it. It is a nice dark, matte black, and it stays all day!

The Revlon Nearly Naked foundation is something that I’ve talked about before on here, so I won’t go too in depth with it. It’s light and provides just enough coverage to smooth everything out.

The Benefit They’re Real Mascara, I think will always be a favorite of mine. Building this up provides a fantastic glam look. However in the past month I’ve managed to learn how to accentuate my lashes while keeping it as natural looking as possible.

Maybelline Master Brow Drama, I have used so much on my easy natural days. I love the way it just plump up my brows just a tiny bit and overall look put together.

Yes, I have included my Tide To-Go stick. This thing has saved me on more than one occasion. I was out eating lunch with my friend, and I was wearing a brand new shirt. I had a major eating fail. Now while it doesn’t immediately remove the stain which is not the sole purpose of this product but when I finally got home and was able to wash my shirt there was no more stain! Such a lifesaver!

My last favorite for the month is Butter London’s nail polish in Champers. I love, love, love this color!! Every time I took it off to change my color I just kept putting it back on. I have easily worn this for the last four or five weeks straight!

I hope that you enjoyed my favorites. I know I put them up a little late. As many of you know, life happens and tends to get in the way of certain things. Have a fabulous rest of the week!
