Mind the gap: Recently while watching a YouTube on The Fashion Citizen's channel, I noticed a very hypnotizing varnish on the lovely ladies nails. Rimmel London's mind the gap is a beautiful shocking blue. This inexpensive nail polish comes in many shades at 1.50 at your local drugstore.
Mascaras: These three babies together create those big fluttery eyelashes I do love to sport. I Love Extreme crazy volume mascara by essence, Maybelline New York's Lash Sensational, and Maybelline New York's The Colossal Volume Express in waterproof. During the summer the heat is sweltering and waterproof products are key to keeping your makeup fresh without it sliding around and feeling greasy.
Lately since the weather has felt more like we are living on the sun rather then earth, wearing foundation hasn't been my biggest priority. I usually feel like I want to wipe my face off after 15 minutes of being outside. But there are those days when my skin is looking a little rough and I want a little help. I recently picked up L'Oréal paris infallible pro matte foundation after watching many reviews on it. I can't say I loved it at first I felt like I could see every pore on my face as if the product was just sitting on my skin, rather then blending in naturally. I then remembered I had a Korean brand aqua petit jelly bb cream and mixed the two together for my perfect shade and applied with a damp beauty blender sponge. Before I had used a kabuki brush. With this new application I was much happier with the finish. The formula is a medium coverage with the ability of going to a full coverage. I never do this but I've seen it done. It does dry to a lovely matte finish and makes you skin look flawless! Even after applying the matte foundation I do still tend to set it it with a matifying powder on my nose, chin and t-zone. During the hot summer days these are the places I tend to get the most oily and I counteract that with the Rimmel stay matte powder. It's around $3 and works pretty good. I do travel with it and touch up throughout the day just incase I need it's shine reducing powers.
Elf Lilac Petal highlighter : this little baby only cost $1, which is amazing for what you get and a little goes a long way. This rosy, lilac, and gold mixed combo adds a beautiful highlight to the cheeks, eyebrow bone, and even works as a cream color on the lids.
Nyx Micro brow pencil in Ash Brown is a new staple I have been using to shape and define my brows lately. I used to dread doing them because I felt I wasn't very good at this step. But with this new product it makes life simple. It's sleek design helps create more natural looking brow hairs. And the added spool at the other end is great for combing them into shape.
I've been into the 6o's mode vibe lately and feel like this look styles well after that era. I picked up this sweet number at my local H&M It's retro vibe instantly catching my eyes. I love to wear it with little black flats or my classy little lifted sandals that I got at a thrift store. Soon I will be uploading a video showing off some of my favorite 60's mod outfits, so keep an eye out for that!
