Lazy Day + Top Knot Tutorial

Monday, July 21, 2014

Raise your hand if you have days where you CANNOT get yourself to go through your full "get ready" routine! **Raises BOTH hands** As much as I love putting together a fabulous outfit, there are days I just don't have the energy! I love hot mess days, I really do!!!

Today's outfit is a comfy, lazy, simple outfit!  This is perfect if you still need to look semi-presentable. Just because you're having a lazy day doesn't mean you can't look absolutely fabulous right?! Also, be sure to check out THIS POST about a perfect minimal makeup look!

Thanks, Hilary for the pictures!!!
Be sure to check out the tutorial at the end of the post for my technique of a classic topknot with a french braid up the back!

Urban Decay Naked 3: Look 1

Friday, July 18, 2014

This pretty little pallet BEGGED me to bring her home with me. So I told her "if you're going to twist my arm, I suppose there is room for you in my makeup collection."  (I'm not the only one that beauty products/clothes talk to right? Right.)

The Naked 3 Pallet is fab. I'm so glad I purchased it!  The Urban Decay pallets are a little pricer than I would normally go for, BUT when you look at how much each individual shadow is, you're really getting a GREAT price.  I usually look for dupes for higher end individual products, but when it comes to a great pallet, it's worth it to me to splurge once in a while!! (This post is NOT sponsored by Urban Decay, they have no clue who I am. I just really loooovvee this pallet! haha!)

I love this pallet because it's mainly rose gold/pinky colors with a few deeper shades.  You can achieve a variety of looks with this pallet and they're really great quality shadows!  The look I did for this post uses the darker side of the Naked 3 pallet, and I'm so happy with how it turned out!  Like I said, this pallet has so many possibilities, and I'm excited to try more looks!

I HAVE to say a big, huge thank you to my bestie, Hilary for taking the fabulous pictures for this post!

I can't get though pictures without 500 pictures like this because Hilary and I giggle like dorks the whole time! :)

Check out the full makeup tutorial here!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
