My Everyday Makeup

Hello Dolls!

I will hopefully follow this post with a tutorial, but here are the products I use everyday for my simple makeup look!


everyday makeup




1) Ulta Fabulous Face Primer.
Primer is a must! My foundation goes on so much smooth over it. On days when I'm in a hurry, I will mix a little potion of foundation and primer, creating a sheer wash of color that stays!
2) This NYC foundation was only $3! It feels very smooth on and has excellent coverage. I usually apply with a stippling brush
3) This under-eye concealer/brightener combo from E.L.F. was $1!
4) The Naked Basics pallet is a must have at only $27 it is a steal. I create a soft, matte neutral eye with it.
5) L'oreal mascara, two coats of black.
6) Physician's Formula bronzer
7) Baby lips! I am obsessed, it makes my lips smooth with a sheer pop of color.

There you have it girls

Fashion Challenge Day 2


Hello lovelies!

So today is day two of the fashion photo challenge (you can find the list below). Today's topic was probably the easiest, because the challenge was:

Shoes You Love But Hardly Wear

I know, *gasp*, there are shoes I own that I hardly wear. But come on, doesn't every girl have those? Those super cute/slightly uncomfortable heels/flats/boots whatever you may have. We all have them, we're lying if we say we don't. 

There are my pair:

Bold Floral Heels. $12 Plato's Closet
Aren't they gorgeous?! I know, that's why I couldn't help myself. They are amazingly cute and I am head over heels (haha) but they are just too dang high to walk in! I am already 5'8", so in these babies I'm encroaching on 6'! I can stand most heels just fine, but in these my ankles are completely extended, making being graceful a tad bit difficult. So I save these for special dinners where I'm not walking much. 

Do you have a pair of shoes you love/hate?

XOXO Stephanie

1st. Your wardrobe
2nd. You have the most...

Fashion Challenge Day 1

Remember when I said "yesterday" in that last post? I guess I really meant "a few days from now"! I apologize for that delay, I am in the process of hopefully moving apartments and had to get a few things in order.

Also, my camera was stolen recently =( So I am having to resort to more creative ways to take outfit photos (awkward screenshots, anyone?)

So in the meantime, I've decided to tackle this list a bit out of order, to fit whatever mood I am in that day. I'm starting with the 9th item:

 "The item that is on the top of your wishlist"

Oh my, this was a difficult challenge, seeing as I've been coveting so many styles and pieces as of late. But, I think I've finally decided!

Drum roll please.....

A hi-low chiffon skirt!

From Forever21 $14.50
I am definitely by no means a skirt girl (of the two I own, I rarely wear them), but there is something about these skirts that I am coveting. I mean look at it! Maybe it's the fact that it is free and flowy that draws me to it. I just can't stand the feeling of not being able to bend over for fear my skirt is going to ride up. Yeah, no fun. 

I thought I might add a bit of fun to this post by displaying how I would wear this piece.....if I had one! (Brownie points if you guessed that reference!)


Hi-Low Skirt and Denim Shirt





I paired this lovely peachy-pink chiffon skirt with a denim shirt (which I also desperately want to own!). Tucked in with a belt or knotted at the waist, the denim brings structure to an otherwise girly piece. Wearing your hair up would give it a very chic vibe, but leaving it down in loose waves could also work for a more laid back look.

Let me know what you think!

XOXO Stephanie
