Everyday Makeup

BareMinerals Stroke of Light in “Neutral/Tan”/ BareMinerals Original Foundation in “Medium Beige”/ Chanel Bronzer in “Terre Epice”/ Bobbi Brown Blush in “Peony”/ MAC Eyeliner in “Coffee”/ NYX Lip Cream in “Amsterdam”/ Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in “Raspberry Pie”/ Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss in “Petal”/ Giorgio Armani Mascara

My current beauty routine is pretty consistent and filled with the basics. You can usually find me makeup-free during the week since I work from home and it’s pointless to put makeup on, but when I do- this is it! Once I find a beauty product I love, I stick with it for a long time. Some of these items are new to my routine (the concealer and mascara) while I have been using others for years.

You can also check out my daily skincare routine, where I share all of the products I use before applying makeup. A clean face and moisturizer is the key to the best makeup results!

Gold & Glittery

T-shirt Markus Lupfer/ Leather Jacket Kenna T (old, from Nordstrom)/ Skirt Maje/ Heels & Clutch c/o Ann Taylor/ Necklace & Bracelets c/o Chloe + Isabel (necklace)(1 and 2)

Sometimes I go a little edgy-glam (as I like to call it). It’s fun to dress up a white t-shirt (and a gold, sparkly one at that!) with some beautiful jewels. I was introduced to Chloe + Isabel a few months ago and I love their whole aesthetic- They have really cool and unique pieces of jewelry and the price point is spot on. They also offer the opportunity for you to gain experience working in fashion through their exclusive Merchandiser program. It’s a really great way to connect with other women via a social shopping experience. If you are interested, I definitely recommend you to check out the program here.
