Foundation To Try: L’Oréal® Infallible Pro-Matte

06 October 2015

I’m always on the hunt for a great foundation to take me from day to night with minimal touch ups. But more often than not, I feel like I’m either wearing a mask because the foundation is too heavy or it doesn’t even make it past the afternoon. 

You know the struggle. 

So, I gave L’Oreal® Infallible Pro-Matte 24hr. foundation a shot. It’s light-weight, long wearing formula goes on smooth with the promise of lasting up to 24 hours. For me, I love the air-light formula, it feels like a tinted moisturizer but with excellent coverage.
The matte finish doesn’t fall flat on my face and doesn’t budge on my oily prone skin. I didn’t make the full 24 hours, but after 17 it was still intact before I washed it off and hit the sack.

Protip: I forgot primer one day and the makeup settled into some of my {oversized} pores, it wasn’t very noticeable but I now know to always wear a primer with it to keep things flawless.

How I Applied It: Skip the brush and opt for a damp beauty sponge {I use the beauty blender}. Smooth on to skin in a rolling motion and blend. The coverage is buildable, so repeat until desired coverage is achieved. I was satisfied with one layer, which gave medium coverage. Finish with L’Oréal® Infallible Makeup Extender Setting Spray {obsessed}.

6 Fall Nail Colors To Try

Over the last couple of weeks I've found myself swapping my trusty OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender for something a little more Fall appropriate. I personally have been leaning toward coppery metallics, opaque nudes and of course, rich bourdouxes to keep up with the current leaf colors. My favorite? It's hard to choose but I will say I've been wearing the heck out of CND Vinylux's Naked Naiveté these last couple of weeks. Here's 6 colors that I can't stop wearing this month.

CND Vinylux Rouge Rite, Amazon $5.98 + Free Shipping
Essie Leggy Legend, $8.50

Leopard and Dots

05 October 2015

Even though this weekends weather made it nearly impossible to shoot today's outfit, thanks wind. Regardless of the weather conditions I can't help but love the red leopard paired with the sheer dot socks - I'm sure the dress will look even better in the coming weeks with opaque tights and a black wing jacket.

Penny and Me

01 October 2015

Since there's no stopping my 70's streak this month I figured this vest deserved another wear before I get to pile on the layers. This time I traded out the dress and OTK boots for a bell sleeve top and pair of jeans {I wish they were flare, but next time}.  I don't know about you but I'm thinking this look is seriously channeling Penny Lane {Almost Famous}, and I'm totally ok with that. 

Ps-Who else is loving my bright mismatched sock situation? Clearly I was thinking ahead when I picked these bad boys out.

Target Beauty: All About Brows

30 September 2015

This post is sponsored by Target.
Brows: You may not think about it, but I’d have to say they’re one of the most important features on your face, aside from your smile. They literally have the ability to make or break a look. I’ll be the first to admit that it’s new territory for me, and that just this past year I started making an effort to get more serious with their inclusion in my makeup routine. Now I can’t imagine being confined to just grooming. So, for this month’s Target beauty post, Pixi by Petra sent over a box full of goodies with brows in mind. I put together two fall-ready looks: one for day and one for nightboth with emphasis on brows and lips. I almost favor the day look because of the simplicity and how it still managed to pop with nearly no other makeup. Which is your favorite?

For day:
First, I prepped my face with a tinted moisturizer and lightly gave my skin a once-over with Pixi’s Color Correcting Powder Foundation in No. 1.

Next, the brows. I am OBSESSED with the Pixi Natural Brow Duo (in natural brown). There’s a pencil on one end and gel with brush on the other. I first drew in some of my light spots with the pencil and finished with the gel for a fuller effect. To highlight the brow and lids, I reached for the Pixi Brow Palette in Shades of Brows using the lightest shade. Finishing the look with a coat of Pixi Large Lash Mascara and Pixi Mattelustre Lipstick in Petal Pink.

For night:
I decided to build on my day look because, really, who has time to wash everything off and start over again? So I added a little more depth to my brows with the Pixi Endless Brow Gel Pen in light. I added another coat of mascara and light layer of Pixi Correction Concealer in Brightening Peach before adding some color to my life. I gave my Endless Brow Gel Pen double duty by giving my eyes a quick line. Next, I added a light dotting of Pixi Sheer Cheek Gel in Rosy to my apples and a swipe of Pixi Mattelustre Lipstick in Raspberry Blush before finishing with Pixi’s new Makeup Fixing Mist for maximum staying power.

Black and Denim

29 September 2015

I think I've gotten a good chunk of wear out of this denim jumper. From a few stylings this summer all the way until now with long sleeves and over the knee boots. I'm kind of obsessed with the retro vibes coming from this particular pairing, don't be too surprised when you see me wearing this on repeat this fall. xo.
