Outfit of the Day and Makeup of the Day: August 26, 2017

Hey ūüĎčūüŹĺ. Today I’m back at it with another blog post on an outfit I had wore recently. The event my siblings and I attended was an all-white attire that all guests must wear. It took some time to put pieces together until finally I had an outfit. Below are the details from the outfit I wore.

Shirt: Celine

Pants: JCPenney

Sweater: JCPenney

Shoes: Charlotte Rousse

Bag: eBay

Fun Fact: this bag matches the shoes I’m wearing. I wore clear heels that were short enough for me to move around and dance without me being in too much pain the next day.

Originally, I was not going to wear a sweater with my outfit, but because the event was on a boat and it’s colder by the water, I decided to wear this cute fuzzy sweater. It kept me warm throughout the night even after I was coming off the boat.

With my outfit, I decided to go simple with my makeup but with a splash of sparkle in just the right places. If you know me, you know I love my golds as my go-to eyeshadow and a simple winged liner. For the sake of this event and my outfit, I decided to bring the glitter out and put that towards my makeup look. Below are the products I used:

Eyes: Absolute Perfect Five Eyeshadow Palette (the copper gold color for lids); Nicka K Perfect Nine Eyeshadow Palette (the shiny white shade in middle third of lids); Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette in Golden Ochre and Raw Sienna (crease colors) and Primavera (middle third for lids); SEPHORA 24 Hour Liquid Liner in Black Lace; e.l.f. Glitter Liner in Starlight and SEPHORA Glitter Liner in Sassy Silver

Lips: SEPHORA Collection Cream Lip Stain in Pink Frosting and tarte Lip Paint in Birthday Suit

That was all for my post on this look. Overall, I had a blast with my siblings on this boat ride event. If you would like to see the stories from my Instagram, make sure to click this link to see all that happened. See you in another post.


Makeup of the Day: August 3, 2017 (Pink Hues)

This is the second makeup look where I achieved the monochromatic eyeshadow look. Similar to my previous post, I use a lighter color for my crease and a darker color for my lid color. Below are the makeup products used for this makeup look:

Eyes: City Color Blush in Baby Pink (crease color); L.A. Colors Eyeshadow Palette in Peony (I used the pink color on my lids): SEPHORA Eyeshadow in Love Song; Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette in Vermeer (lid color); SEPHORA 24 Hour Waterproof Liner in Black Lace
Lips: SEPHORA Cream Lips Stain in Pink Frosting and MAC Lipstick in Goddess of the Sea
Face: Max Studio Trio Kit and Anastasia Beverly Hills x Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit in Kit Kat and Forever Lit

In comparison to my previous post, I really love this highlight combination because it has me glowing all day. With this makeup look, I did the peasant braid and my two-piece suit.

That's all for my blog post. Comment below anymore monochromatic looks you would like for me to do. See you in another post.

My Inspiration to Fashion 

I know for the three years of me blogging you all are thinking to yourselves who has inspired this girl to do what she does on here? You will know today in this blog post. My inspiration for this post came about one day when I needed an input on an outfit for internship. I sat at my desk and thought to myself “this person has done a lot for me with all I needed to feel comfortable in my own skin.”

That one person in which I will talk about today is my sister. She is my main inspiration to fashion and how I express myself till this day. I would start off by saying that she has inspired me since I was in diapers, but that would be nonsense. Technically, she inspired me in elementary school. Every weekend we would play dress up as she puts makeup on my face. When going shopping, my sister (and mom) would pick out the cutest clothes for me to wear going back to school. My inspiration has just begun…but not just yet.

My inspiration for fashion has escalated by plenty, starting in middle school. My brother and sister would go to places such as H&M and Marshalls to find cute fashion pieces and heels for me to wear. Not only did I take it up a notch (or so I thought) with my fashion; I also decided to delve into makeup…learning from my sister of course.

There was a time when I did not feel comfortable to wear all that I wanted to because I made others (i.e., bullies) influence me on my appearance. Thanks to her (and other family members), I began to gain motivation to wear what I want, how I want, when I want.

Because this motivation has helped me, I decided to take it up a notch with my fashion and makeup little-by-little between middle and high school. With regards to motivation outside of fashion within my secondary goals, my sister has influenced me through it all. When I told her about making a YouTube channel and a blog for my expression in fashion, she was right on board. Starting on June 6 of 2014, I began to express myself through my interests with makeup and fashion.

If it weren’t for my sister, I would not be writing blog posts on fashion looks, makeup looks, and product reviews. Through her, I became strong with my passion for the content I put on here. Even though I’m not a tween anymore, I still go to her for advice on outfits and makeup to get a second opinion.

Overall, I wanted to share this post as an appreciation note to my sister. Also, I hope to influence others who need motivation to feel comfortable within their own skin and not let anyone get in their heads negatively.  In other words, have the right people influence you so you can be comfortable in your own skin.

Maybelline Brow Drama VoxBox Review 

Hey again. It’s been a few months since I have done a product review on the blog. If you’re someone who follows me on Instagram, you will see my brief reviews on what I think is great and a steal at such an inexpensive price. So here I am, except this time doing not only one but two product reviews. 

My first product review by Maybelline is the Brow Precise Micro Pencil in the shade Auburn. This is the first product I used to fill in most of my brows. Turns out it works really well. It fills in most of my brows, getting the job done in an instant. The best feature about this product too is that it has a spoolie brush off to one side for blending purposes. Once I blend the lines from my brows, everything looks smooth and natural. 

The next product whil will get the job done on having your eyebrows look this good is the Maybelline Brow Drama Shaping Chalk Powder in the shade Medium Brown. There are five shades to choose from out of the product. Right after I use the pencil, I place this on top to fill in my entire brows. This does a fantastic job at doing this. The only bad thing with this is that there is a lot of fallout. If you decide to use this product, I suggest you clean around your brows afterwards. 

Overall, I would give this entire VoxBox a 5 out of 5 due to the quality of the product and a go-to product I will be using for when I’m on the go (i.e., errand runs). If you haven’t already, you should go purchase these products at your local drugstore. Each are under $10.00. See you in another post.
