Summer is a time for lighter make-up & I’ve been wearing more shimmer than I do in the fall/winter. This is a look that I work for a date night to have oysters on Tuesday night & I wanted to share it with you guys! Below is everything that I used to create this shimmery-eye summer look.
For someone who is such a beauty junkie, a have a surprisingly limited selection of lipsticks. I tend to stick with glosses or tinted chapsticks that I don’t have to reapply using a mirror because, inevitably, I will have to reapply several times a day. I also just prefer the texture of a gloss over a cream or matte lipstick. Over the last few weeks, I’ve had the opportunity to test the new Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick from BITE Beauty. Made with natural monoi butter and coconut oil, the liquid lipstick promises to go on creamy, dry to a semi-glaze finish, & last all day. The Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick is available in 18 wearable shades, from a soft rose to bright poppy.
I’ve been trying out the new Laura Mercier’s new Lightstruck Prismatic Glow Palette for the last few weeks & am sharing all of my thoughts on it with you today! The Lightstruck Prismatic Glow Palette is a limited edition palette of cream highlighters that is available exclusively at Sephora. Its 5 cream shades are designed to mimic the way light reflects & refracts to create a holographic glow.CONTINUE READING
With spring comes the desire to refresh just about every aspect of my life. I’ve been slowing cleaning out my closet, replacing the dark, heavy sweaters with bright, cheerful sundresses. With a refresh in clothes, comes a refresh in beauty too. Makeup gets lighter, contouring gives way to highlighting, & updos are more common. Today, I’m rounding up the top spring trends in nail color to give you a little updated mani inspiration!CONTINUE READING
By now, almost everyone has heard of The Zoe Report’s Box of Style. Every season, it delivers over $400 of exclusive Rachel Zoe picks for only $99! I started receiving the Box of Style this past fall & was immediately hooked! The soft, color-blocked poncho was a game-changer. And let’s get real – if Rachel Zoe says that something is a must-have, then you have to have it. Plus, it’s a chance to get pieces that can’t be found anywhere else. In case you’re undecided, I thought that I would share what was in the Winter 2016 box. Click here to get $10 off your first box!
Everything comes packaged in a chic box. Usually, the box is black, but I like that they changed it up for winter. Each item is individually wrapped in tissue paper, so you the excitement of unwrapping each little gift! It’s the small things in life, lol. Included in each box is a guide with tips on how to use each item.
Dylanlex Zoey Custom Necklace ($200)
How gorgeous is this crystal necklace?!? I tend to lean toward more delicate jewelry, but I cannot resist this statement maker. The length is adjustable so you can wear it as a choker or more of a collar. I wore it recently with jeans & a white button down for some instant glam! I’ll also be pairing it with a cocktail dress later this week. The necklace was designed exclusively for the Box of Style, so you can’t get it anywhere else!
Soia & Kyo Olivia Cable Knit Hat ($50)
We don’t get many days where it’s cold enough to need a warm beanie, but this soft knit one will come in handy when it does! Subscribers got the choice of three colors – black, winter white, or burgundy. I went with the winter white because it’ll go with just about everything in my closet.
Sunday Riley Tidal Enzyme Brightening Water Cream ($65)
Winter weather can be so harsh on your skin. My skin is more dry & breaks out more during the winter, so I’m always on the lookout for something to give my skin a little TLC. I was excited to see this cream included in the winter box. It’s a water-based cream that will soothe & hydrate the dryest skin. It also helps fight wrinkles & brighten dark spots. You can layer it on for a deep hydration mask at home, or wear a thin layer under makeup during the day to protect skin. I love how light it is & it smells sooo refreshing!
D.L. & Co The Zoe Report “Birch” Custom Candle ($50)
I am a candle-hoarder. Seriously, I can’t walk out of Bath & Body Works without a new scent. This black & gold candle is perfect for a winter night, with a woodsy “birch” scent. Right now, it ‘s sitting on the desk in my home office, ready for me to buckle down & do some work! I was really impressed by the quality of the candle, it holds a ton of scent & the jar is heavy glass. Once I’m down with the candle, the jar will make a great holder for makeup brushes!
Dagne Dover Leather Card Case ($50)
Does anyone else have trouble finding a wallet small enough to fit into a clutch? I have so many cute, tiny bags that I love to carry out, but I end up just tossing my ID & cards into the clutch & hoping that I don’t lose anything. This card case holds just the essentials – ID, credit card, some cash – & fits perfectly into my smallest bag! I carried it several times over the break to keep everything together & organized while out & about. When you aren’t using it as a mini-wallet, it’s a chic alternative to a business card holder.
Clinique Lip Color + Primer in Berry Pop ($18)
A deep berry lip is a great winter alternative to the classic red lip. I’d been looking for the perfect color & it turned up on my doorstep! This formula has a built-in primer to make the lipstick go on smooth & last for hours. Anything that combines steps is a lifesaver in my book. The berry color is universally flattering & is saturated to stay true as it goes on. The color + primer also comes in 15 other shades, so I may have found my go-to formula.
Juciy Couture Viva La Juicy Fragrance (bonus!)
As a bonus, each box contained a trial size of Viva La Juicy, a fresh & fun fragrance. It blends berries, vanilla, & jasmine for a floral, fruity scent that will be amazing for spring!
