Outfit Inspiration

Hello everyone ..

One of my new favorite pants are these green mid wasted sashed pants.

They are flattering on almost all body types- because of the mid-waist. It smooths out your lower body, removing any waist band cutting, that usually occurs around the waist/hip area, creating bulging. Its also a great to not have to worry about bending over to pick things up etc. risking exposure. ha!

I have done 2 looks here- one with a great splash of red and the other without. I think that red goes with everything- Notice how it brightens up my face?

This outfit has gone from casual to stylish with just the one addition. Have fun fashionistas!

Mini Make-Up Haul

Hello Everyone,

Here are a few goodies, that I picked up on my recent trip to Florida.

From #Ulta Beauty:  #MAC fix+ Gold Lite

It’s a new item from MAC, a skin refresher & finishing mist. It has specks of a champagne colored substance, which is meant to give your skin a dewy, glowy look. Give it a good shake before using.

From #CVS: #Milani everyday eyes eyeshadow metallic collection.

I love using just one shade all over my eyelids, it adds the softest glitter to your lids without being overdone- so its great for daytime- I have sampled it here on my arm, without an eyeshadow base.

From Macy’s Estee Lauder Double Wear stay in place foundation in shade rich ginger.

The sales associate gave me a sample to try, it was enough for a few days, luckily she really knew her stuff, she got the correct shade for my skin tone right away. This shade is perfect for me.  The foundation has a velvety finish that looks creamy on my skin and not powdery and/or dy at all. It’s a light to medium coverage. *****

Mini Skin Care Haul

Hello everyone,

IMG_6765.JPG

Just bought a few new tricks for the magic kit 🙂

Love them all – so thought i’d share- – I have been reading only great things about Estee Lauder recently so I decided to give it a try.

Luckily, I met the most helpful sales associate at the Estee Lauder makeup counter, I told her what I needed and she gave me lots of yummy samples of things I needed and things she thought I needed -after trying the things that were recommended for my skin type- (Mostly combination and sometimes very dry.) Here’s what i got:

Cleanser:

I have only been using this for about a week now, what I like about it is how clean and fresh my face looks after, bordeline radiant :)- and also that you can leave it on as a mask So far so good!

As per EsteeLauder.com
BENEFITS

Pores look smaller. Skin feels soft, smooth.

SKINTYPE

For all skintypes.

IDEAL FOR
  • Reducing the look of pores
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Flakiness, roughness
  • Dullness, loss of radiance
  • Soft, silky feeling

 

 

I like how my skin feels with it, it isnt oily and really works well on the dry spots. like the sides of my nose and my chin. Under my makeup it has been good at minimizing the lines under my eyes and the pores on my cheeks. It’s only been a week- could be mind over matter- but I feel as if I already can see a difference in my skin.

 

Refining Scrub

 

Estee Lauder didnt have one- found one from #Clinique  its a 7-day scrub cream. I REALLY wanted a scrub that was gentle enough to use everyday- but would do all that srcubs are meant to do- exfoliate, polish and refine your skin.

I will use this everyday on evenings, once all of my make-up is off. Followed by a toner.

Finally ..

Toner

My last toner that just finished was from Clinique- As much I was trying the other things from Estee Lauder I thought i’d try the toner.
