Natural Everyday Makeup

So, I am definitely no makeup artist or anything close to the sort. However, I still love beauty and being put together so I’ve come to create a few go to looks that I have mastered well. One of my favorites is the glowing, all natural style! 
  
To get this look, it’s actually quite simple. The eyeshadow is quick, using a shimmery nude all over and a bit of light brown on the crease. The lashes really make the difference though! I used Ardell Demis and lined my lash line to amp of the volume. 

I always use Anastasia Beverly Hills products on my brows. First, start off with the brow pencil and then set with the duo powder and clear gel. Check out my post from months ago to see my brow tutorial. 

Today, I used the Makeup Forever Matte Velvet foundation, which I have been using forever because it is my favorite. After blending it throughly with a beauty blender, I begin my highlight and contour. 

  
I use a NARS bronzer to contour and Smashbox liquid concealer to highlight. My cheeks are dusted with Snow Leopard from Too Faced as well as NARS Orgasm. I finish off the skin by highlighting with Becca Moonstone and MAC finishing powder. 
I normally weat matte lippys, but today I opted for a dewy look, leading me to a gloss. I statted with Pure Hollywood Matte lipstick then went over it with a nude gloss from Makeup Forever. 

  
This look is really easy to achieve and perfect for a natural looking glow this summer. There’s no better time of year to pack on that highlighter! Again, I’m no makeup artist but I love getting glam!

Valentine’s Day ❤️

Hope everyone had a magical Valentine’s Day! After a spontaneous change in plans, my love and I decided to spend the day in Manhattan Beach and enjoy our favorite steak dinner in Woodland Hills. I kept it casual this year in my favorite, leather. Leather at the beach? Yep, that’s me!

Rainy Day Vibes||

I’m not a huge fan of this rainy weather and all the gloom, so naturally I try to ignore it as much as possible. Wearing skirts and heeled booties in the rain? Obvious choice of course. Never let that cold weather keep you from dressing nice!

MESSHALL| LA

The idea of a “gastropub” was really intriguing, which is one of the reasons I decided to give this place a try! Industrial wooden tables and metal accents surround you while you’re enjoying an incredible meal at one of LA’s best. Messhall Kitchen is right off of Los Feliz and conveniently has valet, since the street parking is usually packed. I went for their weekend brunch, in which they have been voted as one of the best restaurants to brunch in Los Angeles.

I ordered the Messhall Benedict, which was a delightful mix of smoked ham, poached eggs, hollandaise all on a perfectly crisp english muffin. The hollandaise was slightly acidic, with a tiny kick of spice, and overall very creamy, making it the perfect hollandaise. It came with a side of fruit and cost $13 total, which is a decent price for the amount of food you get!

They have a full bar and completely different weekday lunch and dinner menu with plenty of options to try! Definitely a must

Another plus? Rob Scheppy (Celebrity makeup artist and Kardashian guru) was sitting just across the way from us. I love those LA moments when it just hits you that you are living in LA amongst Hollywood’s rich and famous, where dreams come true.

A girl should be two things…both classy & fabulous

IMG_0534.JPG

An handbag worth investing in? Chanel! The signature quilted leather Chanel handbag accented with the gold chain, it’s everything! Every girl dreams of a Chanel handbag with that trademark logo. This bag is the perfect size for going out at night but really can be worn at any time or any day. I’m a huge fan of this style and honestly, it is the perfect accessory to glamorize any look! If you’re looking to buy a handbag, Chanel is always a timeless and chic choice. Afterall, when it comes to Chanel, is there really anyone who wouldn’t kill for one of these purses?

P.S. Can anyone recommend a good quality leather conditioner? I need to preserve that signature Chanel shine!

New York!

Okay, so maybe I wasn’t actually in NY but this holographic crop top is just so fab!

I’m still all about representing the city I’d die for, LA. But, when it comes to holographic prints,  I just can’t resist! I couldn’t help but customize my look by making the oversized tee into a crop top. I also bought these Topshop boyfriend jeans sans massive rips so I went to business with my scissors to show some more skin!

I see you Malibu

image

I recently spent the day in Malibu and I’ve been dying to go to Cafe Habana. I am so happy I did because their corn was literally delicious! This picture does the yummy little appetizer no justice. Roasted to perfection, smothered in queso fresco and finished with a bit of heat, this was to die for. The tacos were tasty too, but definitely start off with the corn when you go!

The views in Malibu are one of a kind and always so dreamy. Don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled because you never know who you might spot in Malibu. Spotted: Kim K at Nobu.
