Style Sunday: I May Like Pink…

Style Sunday: I May Like Pink…

Hey guys!

Quick style post today. Anybody who really knows me, knows I am not a fan of the colour pink at all. However, recently I have been intrigued by pink in various items like lipsticks and blush and nail polish and phone cases and clothing…. HELP! I think I may actually the colour pink ( the horror! lol ūüėõ )

So while perusing the racks at Forever 21 ( I swear I should own stock in this store) I saw a lovely dusty pink T-shirt Dress. My mind instantly began racing with ideas of how I could style it. Unfortunately, this particular location didn’t have my size. A few days later, I tried another location and luckily they had it in stock!

So let me show how I styled it today!

Dusty Pink Dress from Forever 21:  This dress is plain and simple. A stretch knit dress made of a blend of rayon and spandex, this dress fits like a glove! With a straight hem line and three-quarter length sleeves, this dress is easy to dress up or dress down. You can purchase this item here.

Nude Heels: I chose a nude pair of heels for this outfit today . On another day, I could see myself pairing this with a deep plum pair of heels. I’ll post a pic of shoes similar to the ones I have down below.

Jewelry: The dress was extremely simple so I felt it was okay to go a little glam with the jewels. My friend gifted me with a beautiful six strand set of  pearls with the bracelets and pearl stud earrings to match. This added the right amount of glam to the outfit! Extreme, yet not overbearing.

For my makeup I kept it pretty simple. I used my Naked 3 Pallette shades “Mugshot” and “Liar” for my lid shadow along with some black eyeliner and mascara. ¬†On my lips I wore MAC “Nightmoth” ¬†lip liner with Kat Von D “Bauhau5” liquid lipstick! ¬†My foundation was the “NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation in the colour “Benares”

Dress:  $29.90
Heels: $ 20.00 ( i think)
Jewelry: ¬†Gift price unknown ūüôā ¬†similar items retail for upwards of $150

Have an amazingly stylish Sunday!!!

Beauty Blog: Favorite Drug Store Foundation Ever!

Beauty Blog: Favorite Drug Store Foundation Ever!

Hey guys,

So this is just a quick product review on my absolute favorite drugstore foundation. It is the Covergirl “Ready, Set Gorgeous ” Foundation in the shade 320. I absolutely love this foundation. ¬†Here are the pros and cons of this product:

Pros:

  • Oil free: Great for dry skin and even for combination/oily skin like I have . It does not add extra oil to the skin at all.
  • It blends easily.
  • Does not clog your pores.
  • Quite a bit of product in the tube
  • Eye-catching packaging
  • Easily resealable
  • Very inexpensive ( 8-10 dollars )
  • Feels very light on the skin

Cons:

  • You have to use quite a bit of product to achieve full coverage. This is a minimum to medium coverage product
  • Limited colour selection ( only 12 shades)

How I Apply:

First I begin with a primer. I usually stick to the “Baby Skin” primer by Maybelline.

  1. Place a dime size amount  of product on your my finger and dab it on to face and upper neck area.
  2. Next, I use a flat top brush or a stippling brush and blend it using short staccato motions followed by circular motions to completely allow product to be evenly distributed.
  3. Lastly, If it is going to be a particularly high activity day, I will set it with a translucent powder.

I highly recommend this product for anyone who is looking for an inexpensive foundation, or even for beginners who are looking for a product to start on their foundation journey! Till next time….
