september picks

september has been a month of growth and decision making.  i’m working on making some changes in my life and paying attention to what i need and want for myself.  i have gone back to some old product and fashion loves; the things that i know will work and work well.  i’m taking comfort in the familiar and the safe, while still allowing myself move forward in a new and scary direction. IMG_4282.jpgwearing >>

makeup for a minimalist: the conclusion

IMG_2672so this concludes my little “makeup for a minimalist” series.  i covered dewy skin, bronzey eyes, glossy lips, matte lips, my favorite brown shadows, and an example of my night out face.  i really really enjoyed creating these posts, so “makeup for a minimalist” will definitely make an appearance every now and again.  i hope you enjoyed this little series as much as i did!

makeup for a minimalist: last night’s face

IMG_2654i went out to dinner last night and wanted to wear a little bit of subtle makeup with my simple outfit of dark wash skinny jeans, oversized/flowy/sheer white sweater, and gladiator style sandals, so here’s what i popped on:

glossier priming lotion

maybelline fit me concealer in fair (15)

nars laguna bronzer

burberry wet and dry eyeshadow in pale barley

elizabeth arden beautiful color precision glide eyeliner in java – smudged into upper lash line – this eyeliner is great for a really smudgy look

bare minerals flawless definition mascara in black – on the upper lashes only

christian dior creme de rose
