Plaid At The Park

I am beyond obsessed with plaid.
I have been wearing plaid since I was 16 & I love the fact that you can find it everywhere right now!
I bought this cropped plaid shirt because its so different!
I paired it with a pair of grey high-waisted denim.
The jeans meet right where the shirt ends which makes it super comfy
& I don’t have to show too much skin.
You could also pair this with a high waisted skirt for a cuter look
(with tights and boots for the colder season of course)














Tips & Tricks To Looking & Feeling Awake


#1 Splashing cold water on your face at the end of cleansing will close your pores back up and help prevent break outs, stimulate the skin and feel very refreshing!

#2 Put something cold under your eyes. It could be spoons, tea bags, cucumbers, whatever you want! The cold temperature will reduce the puffiness under the eyes. Not to mention, it feels amazing on your tired eyes.

#3 Moisturizing your skin is so important even if you’re oily! (try an oil free lightweight one) your skin can look very dull and flat when you’re tired so its very important to give it the moisture it needs.

#4 Use eyedrops to get rid of the redness. Don’t over use them though or they can dry your eyes out.

#5 Use a facial spray like Evian, Mario Badescu Rose water, etc.. for additional hydration.

#6 use a foundation that has a slight glow. (For those who are extremely oily, you can use your regular matte foundation) Using a dewy foundation will make the skin look more youthful and less tired and deprived.

#7 Highlight as much as possible. Highlighting will reflect light off the high points of the face and make the skin look healthy and dewy. Try a highlighter that isn’t too shimmery that way it will look more natural.

#8 Highlighting the inner corner of the eyes. This will make your eyes appear more open! If you have close set eyes or small eyes, this is a trick you would benefit from on a daily basis!

#9 use a shimmer shadow on the lid. If you do matte all over the lid, it can make the eye look more dreary and tired. Using a shimmer will bring attention to the lid in a positive way.

#10 Highlight the brown bone. This will make the arch of your brow seem higher and create an illusion of having more space between your crease and brow making your eyes appear more open.

#11 Use an eyeshadow just a little darker than your skin. Blending a shade in your crease area will lift the eye as long as its not too dark. Dark shadows can do the opposite and bring the eye down. Bobbi Brown Toast, MAC Soft Brown & Makeup Geek Peach Smoothie are all great options.

#12 Curl your lashes! this is HUGE! Even if you cant do any other steps, curling your lashes will immediately open the eyes and give a lifted effect.

#13 Use a creamy white on your bottom waterline. I don’t use a true white because that can look unnatural. This will REALLY open the eyes up and make you look very fresh. But make sure to use your eye drops because bloodshot eyes with a creamy white liner is not cute.

#14 Bronze a little. When you’re tired or sick, your face can lose color. Using a bronzer will bring back some life to the face.

#15 Use a pink blush. Using a blush with a pink tone in it will make the cheeks appear naturally flushes and youthful.

#16 use a little color on the lips. Don’t go completely nude, because that can make you look lifeless. Since we are attempting to look fresh, glowing and awake, I would suggest a lip color with a pink or rose shade.

#17 GLOSS! adding shine to the lips will bring attention to them, making them look fuller.

#18 Incorporate some color. Wearing color in your clothes or jewelry will give you a more lively appearance.

#19 Incorporate some white. I chose earrings with some white in them. Wearing a shade of white will reflect light and help your case. Wearing black can make you look more tired & weighed down.

 #20 Last but not least, DRINK!! Drink as much water as you can through out the day! Water has so many benefits its insane. Most of us are dehydrated and don’t even know it. Drinking water will hydrate you from the inside out making your skin healthy and reduce under eye bags.

Statement Eyes | Purple & Teal – Electric Palette

Hi lovers!!

I was super excited to play with the electric palette and blown away by the pigmentation!

This palette is technically “pressed pigments” not eyeshadow.

Because of that, the colors are extremely saturated and pigmented.

You have to use a good makeup remover to get the color off your eyes because it can almost stain your eyes for a short time! hahaha

I decided to do a Purple and Teal look (I honestly had no clue what I was doing and came up with this as I went haha)


You can do SO many different looks with the palette its insane!

The first night I got this palette I played around with it very quickly and very sloppy but I was shocked by how many looks could be created with this palette!

photo (1)(like I said…sloppy)

You can have so much fun with this palette and right in time for Summer!

Hope you enjoy! love you! xx
