New Years Eve Party Outfit + Makeup Look

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!
NYE Party 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!


What to Wear to a Holiday Party

Hey everyone! Today I am going to share with you an outfit that I put together. It's perfect for a holiday party or going to the theatre. You can also add tights if you live in a city that is cooler. I hope you find inspiration from this look for your own holiday party look!

Crushed velvet is a huge trend this Winter, and I think a velvet dress makes any outfit more glam. I also think gold and burgundy are beautiful, festive colors for the Winter. This gold velvet dress is so pretty and the white soft jacket will keep you warm while also looking super stylish

Liquid eyeliner is a perfect makeup staple because it makes your eyes pop. False eyelashes will also make your eyes pop and make them appear more open and dramatic. You can never have too much highlighter, and this one from Laura Mercier is extremely stunning. Liquid lipstick is also a must have, especially when you are going to be drinking or eating food. Liquid lipstick is designed to keep your lip color staying on your lips all day, without transferring or smudging off.

You can top off this look with a nice smelling perfume and some cute accessories, like the choker and the ring!

*Winter Workout Clothes | Lululemon Dupes

Hey everyone! Today I teamed up with StyleWe to share with you some cute workout clothes for the Winter. These clothes look similar to Lululemon, but are more affordable! I personally love wearing athletic clothes, even when I am not working out. I find that they are extremely comfortable and also cute.

I love the Fitness Guru sports bra because it has a super cute mesh detailing and band. It is similar to the Lululemon Clip-In Line bra.

I also really like the black and white marbled sweater because it has a super fun slit in the back so you can see your sports bra. I think the wrap sports bra is a really cute idea and it reminds me of the wrap style bikini top. Wrap style tops are super flattering also!

The pink long sleeve top is extremely similar to the Lululemon Swiftly Tech Long Sleeve Crew shirt. They have very similar details on the front and back of the shirt, and the logo for both is in the same exact place. The top from StyleWe is $25 cheaper though!

The black sports bra has cute strappy detailing on the back that makes any workout outfit more fun. It is very similar to the Lululemon Lighten Up bra and looks perfect under an open back top.

The cropped leggings with the grey band are perfect or working out in all year round. They are a great alternative for the Lululemon Drop It Like It's Hot crops. The crops from StyleWe are almost $60 cheaper- what a steal!

The black tank top is definitely a dupe for the Lululemon Power Y Tank. They both have the logo in the same spots and have a similar shape to them. These tank tops are perfect for doing yoga in because they fit tightly but comfortably, so they won't move around while you are in your poses.

The black and white zip up is very fun looking. It is a great alternative for the Lululemon Swiftly Tech 1/2 Zip. The StyleWe zip up is $25 cheaper and comes in a wide variety of prints and colors.

I also really like the ombre jacket and think the colors are perfect for Winter. It's a very nice jacket to throw on when running to the gym or doing some light cardio. It looks similar to the Lululemon Daily Practice Jacket, except it's almost $90 cheaper!!

Ipsy Glam Bag Review | December 2016

Hey everyone! I got another Ipsy glam bag in the mail a week ago. I started subscribing to Ipsy last month- you can read my November glam bag review here. If you don't know already, Ipsy is a beauty subscription box that sends you 4-5 beauty products each month for $10. If you decide to try out Ipsy for a month, you can use my referral link-

M Y   B A G  I N C L U D E S
-Hanalei Lip Treatment (5mL) //
-Beau Gâchis Concealer Brush (1oz) //
-Aurora Eyeliner (1mL) //
-Ofra Highlighter (4g) //
-Tarte Maracuja Oil (7mL) //
Here's the card that came in my glam bag. All the products in the bag are based around the holiday season and are perfect for any holiday party. 
I've already used this product so much and I really love it! It is super moisturizing and is great for hydrating your lips after you exfoliate them with a lip scrub. It doesn't have a smell and is a thick consistency. It is also great for wearing overnight so that you wake up with lips that aren't chapped.

I usually use a sponge to blend out concealer, but this brush is nice if you need to blend a small area. It works well and blend nicely. 

I usually don't wear liquid eyeliner because it can get really messy. I think this liquid eyeliner is really easy to use. I normally will apply it to my eyes and then wait for about 30 seconds to let it dry. Once it's dry, it does not budge at all which is great! I received this eyeliner in blackberry which is a dark black color. 

This is a highlighter/eyeshadow in the shade bliss. It comes in a magnetic pan that can be put into a magnetic makeup palette like a Z palette. The color is extremely pretty and very versatile. It is also extremely pigmented as you can see in the picture above. I love that you can wear this as an eyeshadow and a highlighter! 

I've heard great things about this oil so I was excited to try it out. You can do so many things with the oil, like put it on nails, hair and skin or use it as makeup remover! You could also use the oil as a highlighter too. It comes with a dropper so you don't have to pour out the oil on your hand and waste product. 

My favorite product from the December Ipsy glam bag is the...

2016 Christmas Gift Guide | Athlete

Hey everyone! Next up on the Christmas gift guide series are gift ideas for athletes or people who love to work out. I picked out some unique gifts that anyone would love.

You can check out my previous post here, if you need gift ideas for makeup lovers. You can also read my old holiday gift guide from last year here. I hope you find this gift guide helpful :)

christmas gift guide- athlete
Duffel bag | Hat | Fitbit | Hair ties | Ear buds | Sweater | Yoga mat | Hidrate Spark water bottle | Sports bra | Blotting sheets | Leggings | Necklace | Shoes

If you know someone who likes monitoring steps and things like that, than I would definitely suggest buying a Fitbit. They keep track of your heart rate, steps, sleep, exercise, weight, etc. It really does it all!

Another good gift idea is to buy a Hidrate Spark water bottle. If you know someone that has trouble drinking enough water throughout the day than this is a great gift for them! This water bottle syncs with your phone and sends you constant reminders to drink water and measures your water intake.

Cute clothes are definitely an essential for any athlete. These black leggings are so cute and have a fun mesh detailing on the leg. The sweater is also a really nice gift, because it can be worn for working out in or on a day to day basis. The cross on the bottom adds a lot to the sweater also.

If you don't know the sizes of the person you are buying a present for, than you can always buy jewelry. This necklace is super dainty and pretty and symbolizes strength.

Thanks so much for reading and I hope this helped you with your gift giving this season!

2016 Christmas Gift Guide | Makeup Lover

Hey everyone! Christmas is coming right up so I put together a few things that I think would be perfect gifts for someone who is a makeup fanatic. I did a holiday gift guide last year too that you can check out here. I hope you all find this useful :)

Christmas gift guide - makeup
Victoria's Secret perfume set | makeup brush setCiaté nail polish set | Too Faced makeup set | makeup bag | Sephora mask set | straightener | First Aid Beauty set | Stila liquid lipstick set | The Body Shop gift set | Clarisonic mia 2 | Becca palette | Huda eyeshadow palette | Ardell false eyelashes | Philosophy set

I think sets of things are perfect to buy for people! The Body Shop has great deals on holiday sets around Christmas, and they all smell so good! To save money, you can also buy sets and split them up to give to people.

Face masks and skincare sets are also great presents, especially during winter because usually skin starts to get dry.

Face and eyeshadow palettes are always nice to buy, especially if you know the favorite brands of the person you are shopping for. If you know someone who is just starting out with makeup, you could also buy a makeup brush set with all the basic brushes in it.

Hopefully you found this post useful! If you want more ideas, check out my post from last year here.

Thanks for reading!
