Hey everyone! I recently traveled to New York City over Winter break with my family. I wanted to share with you the outfits that I wore while I was there! I definitely had to dress in layers most days because it was pretty cold there. I will also be posting some of the photos I took while I was in New York in another blog post soon!
On this day we flew from NC to NY in the afternoon. This is my traveling outfit and Christmas dinner outfit. My tunic is from Nally & Millie (similar), my scarf is from Calvin Klein (similar), my leggings are from Lululemon and my shoes are from Forever 21 (similar).
On this day we went to the Met and did more exploring of NYC. I am wearing a grey sweater from American Eagle (similar), jeans from Topshop, shoes from Adidas (color navy), and a jacket from BCBGeneration. I wore this jacket everyday because it's super warm and has down in it. The purse I'm wearing is from Rebecca Minkoff.
On this day we went shopping and walked on the High Line and saw the Rockettes. My shirt is from a resale store called Buffalo Exchange (different color here), and my jeans are from Topshop. I also wore my boots from Forever 21 (similar) and my Purse from Rebecca Minkoff.
On this day I forgot to take a picture of what I wore. I wore a grey sweater that I got from a small boutique (similar here), black leggings from Lululemon, and my boots from Forever 21.
I wore two outfits on this day because it rained a lot, so I had to change into dry clothes for the rest of the day. I am wearing a blue sweater from American Eagle (similar), a plaid scarf from Gap, black leggings from Lululemon and my Forever 21 boots.
Hey everyone! Today I am going to be sharing my Winter makeup routine. I've been using a bunch of new makeup products lately and wanted to share them with you.
First off I like to prime my face using the Benefit POREfessional primer. I really like this product because it smooths out your face and makes your face makeup apply better and look nicer. Next, I apply my Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous foundation in the shade 305 with a damp sponge from Swissco. I recently purchased this foundation from Ulta because it was on sale for like $3! It feels extremely lightweight on the skin and is great for oily skin. I apply my Rimmel Match Perfection concealer in the shade 335. This concealer is a shade lighter than my skin and I like to highlight the bridge of my nose, my forehead and my under eye area. I set all of this with my Laura Mercier Loose Setting powder in translucent. I have been using this same powder for over 3 years now and the container is still not empty! I dust this all over my face with my big fluffy brush from Sonia Kashuk.
For eyebrows, I use the Skone Brow Wand in chocolate to first brush them out. Then I use the other side of the wand and very lightly outline the outer half of my brows and fill them in. I like to make them look more natural by also using this eyeliner/brow brush from Essence to apply this Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in the shade Blonde to my eyebrows. I fill in the inner part of my brows with this, so that my eyebrows don't look super harsh. I set this all in place with the Maybelline brow gel in transparent.
I use the eye brushes in this set by Sonia Kashuk to apply the Morphe 35T palette(currently sold out) to my eyes. I like using the light brown shades as transition colors, the dark brown/purple shades as outer corner colors and the gold shades as all over the lid colors concentrating in the middle of the lid. I also pop some of the highlighter from the Carli Bybel palette in the inner corner of my eyes to make them look brighter and more awake.
I like to add this Essence black eyeliner to my tightline and my waterline. Sometimes I skip this step, but if I am feeling like a more dramatic look I will add liquid eyeliner to my eyes. On the day that I took the pictures below, I also decided to add some false lashes by Ardell. I use this Ardell kit to apply the lashes. It's a great false eyelash starter kit because it comes with glue, tweezers and two pairs of lashes!
After I apply the lashes, I curl them with this eyelash curler I got from Target. This eyelash curler does a great job of lifting your eyelashes and make them stay curled for the entire day! I like to curl the fake eyelashes with my real lashes so that they stay together and don't look separate. Then I apply some of The Balm mascara which is a great mascara for separating your lashes.
Hey everyone! New Year's Eve is right around the corner and it's that time of the year when people are busy shopping for the perfect New Year's Eve party outfit. Here is an outfit that will give you inspiration for your outfit!
Velvet has been a huge trend recently! I think this blue velvet crop top paired with the silver sequin skirt is a perfect festive outfit. You will definitely stand out and sparkle in a crowd. The motorcycle jacket looks really good over the top and adds a edgier detail while also keeping you warm.
Fake eyelashes will add a lot to the look and make your eyes pop. Kohl eyeliner is also a great makeup staple for a New Year's Eve party look because it's easy to smudge around your eyes to add a more dramatic look. A dark blue smoky eye would look nice with this outfit also! If you decide to do a dramatic eye look, then you should definitely keep the lips simple by swiping on a layer of nude or pink lipstick so your makeup isn't too overpowering.
Of course add some festive nail polish and spritz on some perfume and you should be all ready for NYE!
Thanks for reading! I hope you all have a great NYE!
