Make-Up Dupes + Alternatives: Part II

Here it is, part II! I hope you guys are enjoying this new dupes series. This week I focused on lipstick. MAC is a holy grail brand for me, but unfortunately due to their popularity it can be difficult to get popular shades or limited edition items. Luckily, brands like Revlon, Wet n’Wild, and CoverGirl make similar shades for half the price tag! Please note, that although I’ve done my research and these dupes are extremely similar in color, the quality + consistency may not be the same. Each brand has their own formula and everyone has their own preference.…

Since there are SO many different make-up alternatives and options, I’ve decided to turn this into a series. Pinterest offers quite a number of “dupe graphics”, but I’ve decided to create my own set. I’ve done quite a…

First Impressions + Review: Hourglass Immaculate Foundation + NYX Eyeshadow Base

After hearing such positive reviews of Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation, I knew I had to try it. The foundation is geared towards those with oily skin (that would be me). It claims to be mattifying and can build up to full-coverage. I decided to put it to the test. Since I was already trying the foundation, I decided to also try NYX Eyeshadow base in the same review and create a full look!  The application was absolutely flawless. The packaging suggests you apply the foundation in sections which I completely agree with. Since the foundation is so mattifying, it…

On Trend For Fall: Leather Skirts with Printed Blouses

Tibi Leather Skirt – Equipment Polka Dot Blouse – Zara Printed Blouse Madewell Tearose Blouse – TopShop Chiffon Floral Shirt People StyleWatch has easily become my favorite new magazine. Despite being obsessed with the digital world of fashion, I still have a weak spot for printed magazines. Something about flipping through the glossy pages just reminds me why I love fashion and style so much. In their August issue, they showed Brooklyn Decker effortlessly rocking a printed blouse + leather skirt. Inspired by her look, I decided to shop around for similar options. It’s a great look for a night out when…
