Easy Holiday Makeup

Sharing a super easy holiday makeup look on this sunny Friyay! I’ve gotten a lot of requests lately to share some of the makeup I recently picked up. Guess you guys caught on that I have a lot to share after I showed you my new makeup drawer in the office – haha! There’s a lot in there (don’t tell Kevin! lol!). Anyway, I picked up a few new things and wanted to share a quick review of that foundation I was testing out this week as well!

First things first, if you’ve been around for a while, you know I’m very loyal to my foundation. I even wrote my first blog post on it (go gentle on me, it was my first post!). So, I’m always really hard on any other foundation that comes my way. I recently grabbed the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation from Nordstrom because I was desperate to find something to help my dull, winter skin. Don’t get me wrong, I love my old foundation. But, in the depths of winter, it can sometimes look like I stuck my face in chalk because it’s just SO mattifying. Not a cute look. I’ve always heard great things about the Luminous Silk foundation but was hesitant to buy it because of the price tag. I finally bit the bullet, grabbed it and can confidently say I have ZERO regrets.

The Armani Luminous Silk foundation leaves a radiant, natural, medium coverage finish that’s buildable if you want a more full coverage look like I prefer! It doesn’t get cakey throughout the day and lasts a solid 10hours. I used it for the first time on Tuesday and haven’t gone back to my old foundation yet. Safe to say, it’s a keeper and will be my new go to foundation this Winter! I’m wearing shade 5.5 here. And, after I did the math, I realized I actually save money using this foundation! I always mixed an illuminating or highlighting serum into my old foundation to eliminate any cakeyness; so in reality I was always buying a foundation + another product. Now, I only need to buy the foundation. Major win!

Okay, onto the holiday look! I’m sharing a detailed tutorial in stories this afternoon on how I achieve this exact metallic eye look. I used two liquid metallic shadows from Armani Beauty. I used “41 – fusion” in my outer lid and “34 – copper reflection” in my inner corner. Both are super long lasting, and you only use a little so the bottle will last a long time.

Something I love about this holiday look is that it’s super neutral. The copper tones allow you to pair it with a bright red lip for a traditional holiday look for your next party. Or, you can pair it with a more neutral lip, like I did here, for events you have later this winter like a wedding, bachelorette party or just a good old date night! This look is super versatile!

Be sure to check out stories in a few for a full tutorial! Also, if you’re in need of a great gift, check out the rest of Armani Beauty’s products. They have some really good gift sets and perfume that would be a great gift for her! If you don’t find something there, Nordstrom has got you covered! They have an entire gift section on their website broken down by person and by price making it SO easy to find what you need. Plus they have free shipping and returns (even on used beauty products!!).

Holiday Gifts for Her

Hello friends & happy weekend! Unexpectedly had to take the afternoon off yesterday to deal with a headache. It probably would’ve been okay had I actually picked up my migraine prescription this week. But I didn’t, and then I left my keys in Kevin’s car and was essentially on house arrest all day while he was working. Yet another set of life lessons teaching me to not procrastinate and to remember where I put things – lol. Feeling better today so I wanted to share the second gift guide in my series!!

Earlier this week, I shared a ton of gifts for the men in your life. Tomorrow, I’ll be sharing a gift guide for home (shop my top picks early here) and Monday I’ll be sharing gifts under $30! Today, I’m sharing gifts for her – your sister/SIL, mom/MIL, daughter, niece etc! Same with the men’s gift guide, almost every piece below is under $75!

I’m sharing some top picks in the graphic below as well as my full round up at the bottom!

30+ Affordable Boots for Fall

Sharing a round up of my top boot and bootie picks for the cooler months ahead! I’ve tried to keep these mostly under $100. Those that are over are definitely staples in my closet and ones I’ve had or plan to have for years! And, like I mentioned on stories earlier this week, I do plan to do a huge winter gear round up (coats, boots, hats, gloves etc) soon. So, I’ve kept most of these to just regular boots/booties.

A ton of these boots are on sale this weekend so definitely take advantage. A few favorites like my tall brown boots, sneaker booties, and studded booties are all on sale! Also eyeing up these fur-line wedge sneaker booties. Think I *need* them – ha! And, ICYMI, DSW is having 25% off all booties with code COOLBOOTS. My faves are all on this page.

Rounded up my top picks in the collage below and sharing a ton more at the bottom of the post!

“How do you get your glow?”, “what’s your lip color?” and “can you do a tutorial on your eye makeup?” are probably the three most common DM’s I get on Instagram. Today I’m answering all three of those questions here as well as linking all of the products I use on a daily basis! I’m also about to share a full tutorial on my makeup routine on stories!

Everything linked here can be found at Nordstrom. I love shopping for beauty products there because they have all of my favorite brands, and I always manage to squeeze in a little clothes shopping at the same time – haha! I also love that they allow you to return a product you’ve already used if you decide it’s not for you! This make shopping for beauty products online so easy and pain free! Plus, through today, Nordstrom’s having their bonus points event – members get 5 points/dollar and cardmembers get 10 points/dollar. Perfect time to stock up on everything you need!

I’m sharing my top three makeup products below that are, in my opinion, must haves to create the perfect Fall makeup look! All three I’ve had for over a year and last forever!

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution in “Walk of Shame”

If you’ve followed me for a while, you probably recognize this lipstick in shade “Pillow Talk.” I’ve used it for over a year and still have the same tube. It lasts FOREVER, is super moisturizing and mattifying. I picked up the shade “Walk of Shame” for Fall. It’s the perfect berry color to give you that “kissed lip” look that’s trending for Fall and will work well into the holidays. I layered it over the liner in the same shade for a color that lasts all day!

Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette

The Naked Heat eye palette has the perfect shades for Fall! Currently, I’ve been using the shades “Sauced” and “Low Blow” for a warm, everyday eye color on my crease and lid. I’ll then mix in the shade “En Fuego” to my crease for a night out. I’ll use the shade “Ashes” for my lower liner! I’ve had this palette for over 2 years, and it’s still going strong. Every shade is so pigmented so a little goes a long way!

Becca Cosmetics Champagne Pop Highlighter

Becca Champagne Pop is the queen of all highlighters! It’ll give you that instant lit-from-within glow and is perfect for anytime of year. I especially love using it in the Winter to keep my skin looking fresh even when it hasn’t seen sun in months! This is another product that lasts forever cause you have to use so little to get that glow! If you’re very fair, I recommend using shades opal or pearl.
