What To Wear To A Spring Wedding

Spring is here; with that being said you may have a bunch of wedding invites requesting your attendance. Although weddings may be fun, finding an outfit is the tricky part! Pastels are known for spring, but being fresh and vibrant is also the way to go.

A chic pastel collar dress with classic pumps is perfect for a semi- formal wedding! Pair it with simple earrings and a bracelet, along with a small clutch to pull the perfect spring wedding outfit together.

If you are going to a more formal spring wedding a longer fitting pastel dress with stylish heels is perfect. To make your outfit a little more fashionable wear a chunky statement necklace, simple ring, and clutch to match the whole outfit!

Wearing a dress to a spring wedding does not have to be your only option. Try something completely different! A jumper can be worn to a spring wedding if you dress it up elegantly. Tie the whole look together with a heeled sandal, an embellished clutch, paired with stud earrings and a ring.

PRODUCT REVIEW: NUANCE SALMA HAYEK CC CREAM

n

 

Product Description: Inspired by her grandmother, Salma Hayek aimed to create products that are designed to help women enhance their natural nuances that make each and every one of them unique. This Nuance Salma Hayek Color & Correct CC Cream is a multi-purpose cream. It protects your skin with SPF 20 in a sheer coverage while correcting and concealing dark spots and uneven skin tone. The CC Cream is infused with light-reflective pigments that leave you glowing for the whole day.

Packaging: The tube is conveniently small, while still packing in a lot of product, which makes it great to just throw into my purse or makeup bag on the go. I like that it’s incredibly easy to get just the right amount of product and not let anything go to waste with the “tube” packaging.
Experience: I received this product in the mail and was super excited to try this out. I have not had great experiences with other CC cream’s so I had high hopes for this one. I opened the bottle and to my surprise, it smelt incredible. I don’t know if it was my imagine, but oh my, was I in heaven! The product has Tahitian Vanilla Extract in it so hopefully that’s what I was smelling. The first time I tried this, I used it without any powder, which led to my mistake. My never shiny face was super shiny immediately after application! I was heartbroken until I tried it again the next day, with powder, and thankfully, the shiny problem was gone. It definitely is a sheer and lightweight coverage, but it still evens out your skin tone. I’ve never had much trouble with acne but my skin tone has always been uneven so this is a go to product for me now. No matter your skin problems, this is a great product to use – alone or with something else. I can definitely seeing myself slapping this on before a day out in the summer sun the whole summer long!
Ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane, Water, Isododecane, Isopentyldiol, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, PEG-10 Dimethicone, Sea Salt (Maris Sal), HDI/PPG/Polycaprolactone Crosspolymer, Dimethicone, Sorbitan Stearate, PPG-12/SMDI Copolymer, Polyglyceryl-6 Polyricinoleate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Alumina, Niacinamide, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Vanilla Tahitensis Fruit Extract, Tocopherol, Ascorbic Acid, Tocopheryl Acetate, Butylene Glycol, Boron Nitrate, Sodium Citrate, Dipropylene Glycol, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Silica, Triethyl Citrate, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Isopropyl Myristate, Acrylates/Ammonium Methacrylate Copolymer, Polyglyceryl-2 Isostearate, Lauryl Polyglyceryl-3 Polydimethylsiloxyethyl Dimethicone, Dimethicone/PEG-10/15 Crosspolymer, Polyglyceryl-6 Polyricinoleate, Methicone, Phenoxyethanol, Iron Oxides (CI 77491 CI 77492 CI 77499), Chromium Hydroxide Green (CI 77289), Yellow 5 (CI 19140), Chromium Oxide (CI 77288)
Price: $14.99 (get it here)
Rating: 4/5. The only thing holding me back from rating this product higher is the shininess without powder. I have to apply powder every once in a while just so I don’t turn into human glass. Otherwise, this a great product and check it out if you get the chance!
Xoxo,

How To Get Longer Looking Lashes

Eyelashes. Where would we be without them? When voluminous and long, they complete a full face of makeup or are just a nice touch to a naked face kind of day. Although I have no super essential mascara preference, I am currently loving Better Than Sex Mascara by Too Faced and Maybelline’s Colossal. With family and friends convinced I wear fake lashes (I don’t), I have some great tips to share with you to get your eyelashes looking amazing.Capture

1) Before you start coating your lashes like usual, apply mascara to the top of your lashes. So many people skip this step and it’s seriously a life changer! It makes your eyelashes look like you just put on a pair of fake lashes. Just be careful not to put too much or else it will start to get clumpy.

2) When applying your mascara, start from the root of your lashes and work up. Make sure to wiggle your brush for the best results. Wiggle and shimmy like there’s no tomorrow, chica!

3) Curl your lashes. Use an eyelash curler or if you’re like me and don’t own one, use your fingers. After coating your lashes, wait about 1-2 minutes, and press your lashes up with your fingers. It works wonders and you can totally tell the difference!

4) Now, this tip might sound a little weird, but trust me on this one! Apply a coat of mascara and then a light amount of pressed powder onto your lashes. After, apply more mascara. This will keep the mascara from flaking and make them look fuller and thicker.

5) Massage your eyelids around your lash line. It stimulates growth and gets you longer lashes in no time. Not only does this work for eyelashes, but hair too. Massaging your scalp or even brushing your hair works wonders. My hair would always grow so slow, but ever since I started brushing my hair like a crazy woman two years ago, it grows like wildfire! I love it (except when it comes to retouching my roots)!

6) Eat! Eating healthy and getting all the vitamins you need to keep healthy is essential for hair growth. An important trace element you should keep in mind is silicon. It promotes hair growth and it keeps you healthy. Silicon is found in asparagus, cucumbers, green beans, olives, rice, and oats.

Holidays mean family and friend time, so why wouldn’t you want to look good? You gotta dress to impress this Easter for family, friends, and most importantly, the Easter bunny and with these outfit ideas, it’ll be easy breezy!

Starting off, I absolutely adore this color palette. The blue and orange go so well together and the nude handbag/shoes calm everything down. If it gets a little chilly, just put on a cute, light white cardigan.Easter Outfit 1If dresses aren’t really your thing, this second outfit is perfect for you! With a white loose blouse and a pop of color in the pants, people will be hop-hop-hopping over to ask you where you got this outfit from!

Product Review: CoverFx Contour Kit

  
Product Review: CoverFx Contour Kit (shade N Deep)
 
Product Description: This Cover FX Contour Kit features four ultra-blendable shades of the pro-contouring favorite Total Cover Cream Foundation. The Contour Kit comes in six global shades based on depth and undertone so that every skin has an ideal match, it includes a step-by-step instruction card to ensure perfect results. I swatched my shade which is N Deep. 
  
 
Packaging: It comes in a square palette with four shades which makes it really handy to carry around with you!
 
Ingredients: Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Diisostearyl Malate, Polyglyceryl-2 Triisostearate, Silica, Synthetic Beeswax, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax (Cera Carnauba, Cire de carnauba), Squalane, Neopentyl Glycol Dicaprate, Triacontanyl PVP, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Dehydroacetic Acid, Tocopherol, Tribehenin, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Bisabolol, Phytosphingosine, Ethyl Linoleate, Ethyl Linolenate, Ceramide NG, PEG-10 Phytosterol, Ethyl Oleate, Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-12, Triethoxycaprylylsilane (+/-) Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Chromium Oxide Greens (CI 77288). 
 
Application: So full disclosure, when I first received the product I wasn’t exactly sure how I was suppose to use all four shades on just my one face. It was obvious what the contour color was, but I wondered why I had THREE other highlight colors. My first time applying it I only used shade 4 to contour and shade 2 for a shimmer highlight. I didn’t know how best to apply it so I just went ahead and used my fingers. My results were just ok. Flash forward to a week later, I tried the product again after “talking shop” with some makeup artists about how it could be used. This time I used a short dense foundation brush to apply it and opted to skip the foundation under it. Instead I used shade 1 to highlight under my eyes, shade 3 for spot concealer coverage, shade 4 to contour and shade 2 as a highlight. The result was surprisingly amazing!! I was able to do a full face using only one product. I’m not sure if this is how it was actually designed to be used but it works great for me! This product is now a must for me whenever I travel because I can carry one product instead of four and not have to worry about caring any liquids.
  
 
Price: $48.00
 
Rating: 4/5
I love this product and will definitely use it as a staple when I am traveling. The only thing I don’t love about this product is the way the packing starts to get a little messy the more you use it. It’s very hard not to get any makeup outside the circle of the palette, which goes against all the kindergarten lessons of not coloring outside the lines. Overall I would recommend this product. If you’re interested in trying it you can get it at Sephora

What’s in Her Makeup Bag: Jackie of FiveTwoBeauty

As much as I love sharing my favorite beauty products, I enjoy learning about other people’s favorites just as much! Sometimes I see someone with great makeup and wonder to myself..what’s in her makeup bag?? So with that in mind I decided to start a new series interviewing real woman and the products they use the most. First up is Jackie of the beauty blog, Fivetwobeauty. Keep reading to see what product she currently keeps with her on the go.

Jackie Five two beauty

What type of “bag” actually makes up your makeup bag (I.e cosmetics bag, ziploc bag, items floating around the bottom of you’re purse, etc.)

I grab for a huge cosmetic bag when I know I will be out a lot throughout the week. And if I am just carrying a small purse, I grab my essentials and just stuff them in my purse.

If you had to guesstimate, how many items are currently in your makeup bag?

Without looking right now I have more than 10 items.

What are these items?

  • CoverFX concealer
  • Mally Beauty Dark Circle Corrector
  • Juicy Couture perfume sample in Hollywood Royale
  • Pacifica Coconut Water cleansing wipes
  • Bath and Body Works Pocket Bac Anti-bacterial hand gel in Vanilla Berry Sorbet
  • CLEANSE 1 facial cleansing wipe sachet
  • Inglot Felt tip eyeliner
  • Jessie’s Girl liquid liner
  • Sephora 5-pc travelling eyeshadow brush pen
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
  • Supergood Sunscreen
  • Nars satin lip pencil in Rikugien
  • OCC lip pencil in Lydia
  • ColourPop Lippie pencil in Bichette
  • Urban Decay eyeshadow primer potion
  • POPSUGAR Mystery mascara sample (it was revealed this is the Benefit Roller Lash)
  • Mistura brush
    Jackies makeup bag

How often does it change?

Every few weeks. The products I have right now in my bag, I have been using for the past 3 weeks.

What’s your biggest “splurge” item?

Biggest splurge would be the Hourglass Ambient Palette. *I received a giftcard and so I didn’t hesitate and went for it!

Without a giftcard my next biggest splurge would be my Charlotte Tilburry Luxury quad Palette in Vintage Vamp and Cheek-to-Chic blush in Love Is The Drug

What’s your best “fancy frugal” item?

My best fancy frugal item would be my Marc Jacobs “The Starlet” palette and Hourglass “Dim Infusion” lighting blush which I bought from Poshmark for a really great price. *Both items I guarantee you are the real products and not imitations.


God forbid your makeup bag was lost or stolen; which item would you be most upset about losing?

I would be most upset in losing my ABH Brow Wiz pencil.
Why?

Because that is my favorite brow pencil of all time!


If you’re running late and don’t have time to do your typical makeup routine, what item do you quickly put on before running out the door?

I quickly put on some Cover FX Concealer, Mally Beauty Poreless Perfection glowing foundation then finish off by highlighting with the Hourglass Ambient Lighting palette and some lip balm.

Why?

I have a lot of acne scars I would like to cover up and some redness to conceal. The Ambient Lighting Palette gives back some glow to my skin which makes it look healthy even I am lacking blush or lip color.

What if anything do you think your makeup bag says about you?

I think it says I can’t leave the house without a lot of these products! I am surprised how much I do still need because in my head I thought I really can go throughout my day without a lot of the products I have in my makeup bag!

Read more about Jackie and her favorite beauty products on her blog Fivetwobeauty.com Comment below and let me know what you think about her makeup bag?!

3 Spring 2015 Beauty Trends From SS15 Fashion Week

SS15 beauty trends Collage

Spring is officially here although winter seems to be having a few last words. To help kickstart my spring beauty looks this year I took a look back at the Spring/Summer 2015 Fashion Week shows. Keep reading to see my roundup of the three biggest beauty trends sure to be loved this season.

Tamed Tresses: The middle part is a must for hair this spring. Opt for either silky sleek texture or wind blown wisps and tousled. If hair has to go up, keep it in a relaxed updo- unless it’s a tight low bun which is still a classic (think Dolce & Gabanna). Simple styles such as side braids with ruffled texture are also an option this spring.

No Makeup Makeup: Less is more, and even less is even better. Take a cue from Marc Jacobs SS15 show where models were sent down the runway practically make-up free. Vibrant skin with natural tones on eyes and lips will have people believing you really “woke up like this”.

Line by Line: To compliment your fresh face look, eyeliner is a must. Cateyes were seen on several runways during SS15. If bold color is a must, do like CUTECIRCUIT and smolder eyes with a bright turquoise, but keep lips at a natural color. For bold color, the keyword is balance; pick either the eyes or lips to pop, but not both.
