Fairy Friendships | Summertime Makeup

Sometimes you have to let your inner artist out. Allow your imagination to run wild and just create whatever comes to mind. Without a plan. I did these makeup looks the other day just for fun and I'm so happy with how they came out. Floral and fairy inspired, the soft colors are gorgeous in the summertime sunshine.

White Out

I've always love the idea of an all white look. It's so fresh and chic. And very Scandinavian, or at least I like to think so. I found these destroyed white denim shorts in my closet the other day and knew they were the perfect addition to this Nasty Gal tee.

Accessories are super important with an outfit like this, so I added a lacy bra (also white) and tons of silver jewelry. I'd say stick to one color or pop with an all white outfit. I've been really in the mood for a beachy, boho look recently this hit the mark.

St. Tropez Instant Tan Review + Country Concert!

I don't remember how I ended up with this product, but this summer I have been putting it to the test. St. Tropez is known for their amazing tan products (which I need to try!) but I was still pretty hesitant about this. Since I have such pale skin, most tans end up looking SUPER orange, like an oompa-loompa on me. Not pretty. 

I started out using the St. Tropez Instant Tan on my chest and neck whenever my makeup looked too dark for my body, and it works great like that. A tiny bit mixed with some moisturizer makes an amazing "blender" color to soften too-dark foundation against the rest of your body. But that wasn't enough. I wanted to put it to a real test.
Last week I went to Country Concert '14 with my friend Stephanie. It's a huge 3 day concert in the middle of Ohio that gathers 40,000+ people to watch some of the industries biggest singers. I went on friday and we saw Chase Rice, Dustin Lynch, Montgomery Gentry and Brantley Gilbert. I was pretty excited. Seeing as how almost everyone wears denim shorts+bikinis I was feeling a little pale. I decided to give this a try on my legs for the first time. I was really surprised and pleased at how well it blended it. It gave me enough color to make a difference without looking fake. And it stayed. all. night. long. In between dancing, sweating, singing and more, it did not budge. Which is a miracle. 
The next morning it washed off in the shower really easily. All in all, I'm obsessed with this stuff. I bet it would give anyone with fair to medium skin a great dose of color. It looks really dark in the tube but it's not crazy on your skin. It doesn't move with sweat so it's ideal for concerts, dances, fancy events or just a night out with the girls. If you haven't tried any St. Tropez products this is a great one to start with!

Glamorous Silver Makeup Tutorial + Urban Decay Heavy Metal Liner Review

I was playing around with my makeup the other day and realized I have yet to use most of my Urban Decay Heavy Metal glitter liners! I won the whole color range in a giveaway from Sona (MakeupBySona) last summer I believe and they're hardly touched. So I was inspired to put a little glamorous twist on this pretty simple silver smokey eye. I love it with and without the glitter, and you can also wear this look without the lashes, which I think would be just as pretty. 

These are pretty great as far as glitter liners go. Most of the time I find products like this burn my eyes and make them water a ton, but these UD liners don't do that. They also dry pretty quickly, even when I placed them all over my eyelid. All in all I think this is a great option if you're looking for a fun product to add some sparkle to your look!

Blake Lively Inspired Eye Makeup Tutorial

 For a while now, Blake Lively has been a slight obsession of mine (haha!). Her makeup is always gorgeous, her style is perfect and her hair. Can we just talk about her hair?! It's amazing. AND she says that she eats cupcakes on a regular basis without working out and manages to stay so skinny. Can I just be her for a day?

Anyways, enough gushing. I found these pictures of her makeup (below) which is the epitome of her normal look, and I thought I'd recreate it. It's a pretty simple gold smokey eye with really neutral face and lips. She has hooded eye, like I do, and she sticks with this look as it works great on smaller eyes! I hope you enjoy and let me know if you recreate it!

Festive Face of the Day (4th of July)

Here are a few pictures of my 4th of July look today! I added a bit of blue on the bottom lashline for a fun addition to my usual natural eye. The shadows are actually from a Coastal Scents palette and a NYX Smokey Eye palette. I also added a few Urban Decay products to make the color really pop. I placed ULTRAVIOLET 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil in my waterline and dabbed a bit of the SPANDEX Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner on the bottom lashline—very, very lightly.

I hope you enjoy your Independence Day. Spend today free of worries & celebrating all of the blessings in your life, including our amazing country!
