GLOW

I'M OVER THE COLD AND GLOOMY INVERSION AND SO READY FOR SPRING TO COME! THE WEATHER IN UTAH WAS SUNNY AND BEAUTIFUL YESTERDAY AND REALLY HELPED ME FEEL LIKE I WAS STARTING TO SEE A LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL!! 
SPRING IS ALMOST HERE (CROSSING MY FINGERS) , BUT IN THE MEANTIME IM GOING TO FAKE IT BY ADDING A BIT OF GLOW INTO MY BEAUTY AND MAKEUP REGIMENT..
FOR THIS SPECIFIC LOOK, I USED ALL WARMER TONES  TO CREATE A GOLDEN BRONZE SUMMERTIME FEEL. I WANTED TO USE ALL M.A.C. SHADOWS SO I COULD DEMONSTRATE HOW AMAZING THEY ARE AT SHOWCASING STRONG PIGMENT. IF YOUR REALLY LOOKING TO MAKE A STATEMENT  WITH YOUR MAKEUP, BOLD PIGMENT  IS A GREAT WAY TO ACHIEVE THAT. 
*TIP*: I DON'T GO A DAY WITHOUT DOING THE FOLLOWING- HIGHLIGHTING MY CHEEK BONES!! FOR ME, MY MAKUP ISN'T COMPLETE UNTIL I HAVE DONE SO. I USE  "NYLON" EYESHADOW BY M.A.C. AS MY HIGHLIGHTER. I ALSO USE IT DAILY TO BRIGHTEN UP MY INNER EYES AND BROW BONES AS WELL!









MAKEUP I USED TO ACHIEVE THIS LOOK:

FACE: COOPERWIND BLUSH by JANE IREDALE // LAGUNA BRONZER by NARS// TO THE FUTURE pro longwear lips by M.A.C// 

EYES: M.A.C EYESHADOW WAS USED TO ACHIEVE THIS LOOK.
COQUETTE was used to fill in my brows// NYLON was used to highlight my inner eyes, as well as brow and cheek bones// WOODWINKED and SADDLE were used to add depth both underneath and above my eyes. 
M.A.C FALSE LASHES mascara in "FALSE BLACK".

I HOPE THIS POST HELPS BRIGHTEN UP YOUR MONDAY!

BOHO DAYS// NEON NIGHTS

ANOTHER FAUX FUR LOOK ON THE BLOG TODAY BECAUSE I JUST CANT GET ENOUGH! THE FEELING THAT EMBODIES ME WHEN I'M WRAPPED IN A LUSH FUR COAT IS UNLIKE ANY OTHER. I LOVE PAIRING LUXURY PIECES WITH MORE CASUAL-UNPREDICTABLE PIECES TO CREATE A HIGH-LOW FEEL. ANOTHER ONE OF MY FAVORITE ITEMS THAT I WEAR 5 OUT OF 7 DAYS A WEEK ARE TIGHTS! WHETHER THEY ARE OPAQUE, SHEER, PATTERNED, TEXTURED, WHATEVER. I'LL FIND A WAY TO TIE THEM INTO PRETTY MUCH ANY LOOK!









FAUX FUR: H&M // DISTRESSED SHORTS: FREE PEOPLE // TIGHTS: URBAN OUTFITTERS
