Favorite Things: Best of Beauty

A new week and a new post about my favorite things.  This week I am covering some of my favorite beauty products.

favthings

Tarte [Foundation]:  I LOVE this foundation.  It has GREAT coverage and stays on ALL day without feeling heavy.

Tarte [Airbrush Foundation]: This powder is great with or with out base.  Gives great coverage.  I use it with BB cream only OR when I have a night out I use their foundation I mentioned above.

Make Up Forever [Aqua Smoky Extravagant Waterproof Mascara]: This mascara gives my lashes lots of volume and umph! I also like the non-waterproof version and it works just as well! I got a sample and that is how I feel in love! The brush was a little bit of an adjustment but I really love it.

Mason Pearson Brush [Popular]: This brush was a huge splurge that I got for Christmas.  But almost a month later and I love it.  It really has helped my hair look healthier and fuller.  I also helps spread out your natural scalp oil!  I am WAY overdue for a haircut and actually have gotten compliments on how good my hair looks.  This brush is DEFINITELY worth the splurge.

EOS [Lip Balm]: This stuff is seriously addicting.  I can find it easily in my huge purse.  It stays on strong and really does relieve my chapped lips!

Wine Weekend

  wine This weekend I am venturing to Fredericksburg, TX for a wine weekend Bachlorette party! I am SO excited for a little getaway!  However, packing is a fun challenge to take on [not].  Here are some of my tips and tricks and my fun picks for this weekend! The key is to have items that can be used multiple ways.  This gives you more options but with less bulk in your duffel!  Also, choose items that can mix easily (basic colors). First off the perfect bag: vb

Vera Bradley [Grand Travler]

Here are some of my ideal outfit combos!

outfit 1

I love Chambray tops because they can be used in so many ways! This is a comfy cool look for the car ride to over and will be perfect to wear to the casual dinner we are going to that evening!

 Old Navy [Convertible Maxi Dress/Skirt]//Old Navy [Chambray Top]//Target [Cami Top]//Target [Sandal]

outfit3

I wanted an outfit that could go from day to night.  This is the day for wine tours so I figured I can throw my sandals in my bag and either dress it up or dress it down! I also get cold easily so throw in the chambray shirt for a bit of warmth but not adding bulk to the bag I carry!  You might notice the repeat of the maxi skirt from above.  Thats because it is a convertible dress/skirt… BRILLIANT!

 Old Navy [Convertible Maxi Dress/Skirt]//Old Navy [Chambray Top]//Michael Kors [Wedge]

Outfit 3 is for a little fancier dinner out.  I am OBSESSED with this look! Such fun summer colors!

Neiman Marcus [Flare Dress] //Michael Kors [Wedge]

Target PJ

What better excuse to buy a cute PJ set! Late night chats will happen and you need to be comfy!

Copy Cat

With the warm weather starting to show its face, I was inspired by a pair of Tori Burch wedges I saw the other day.  WIth that being said I also think that sometimes we can “splurge” but other times we need to be economical.  So I have made a “look” that doesn’t think about cost and a copy cat look that is ALL FROM TARGET!  Let me know what you think!

They both have a day look top and a night on the town top.  I think it is great to build versatile outwits that are comfy but can go from day to night!
