3 Fall Makeup Trends You Want To Copy

One of our favorite things about Fall and Winter is the makeup. It's the time of year when we get to switch up our beauty routines, reinvent our style, and try new products and looks. The Fall runways were full of makeup inspiration, but 3 trends caught our eye in particular. Not only are they extremely flattering, but they are easily replicated. Here are three beauty trends to incorporate into your fall and winter looks this season. Graphic liner- Black liner was all over the Fall runways. You’re probably thinking, what’s so new and fresh about black eye liner? This season it’s all about being creative with this beauty staple. Winged liner is ultra flattering. It elongates the eyes and makes lashes look fuller. You can experiment with how dramatic you want the liner to look. It’s all about having fun.

Red lips- You can’t go wrong with a red lip. There are a ton of different shades to play with. Ruby Woo from Mac and Heat Wave from Nars are a couple of our favorites. Beauty tip: Red lips look great paired with a neutral eye.

IMG_8126 WEB

Berry Lips- It’s all about the lips when Fall hits. Red isn’t the only shade to reach for! Berry lipstick is also essential for the makeup kit. Try Craving from Mac, it‘s a great medium berry shade. Not too light and not too dark.

Whether you opt for a cat eye or a bold red lip you're sure to be on trend this season.

Jennifer Lawrence: Minimal Makeup Looks for Spring 2015


"I'm a big believer in accepting yourself and not really worrying about it."

Jennifer Lawrence, the 24-year-old Hunger Games star is known for being blunt about the importance of self-confidence. We love Jennifer for many reasons, including her ability to rock completely natural and minimal-makeup looks all over magazine covers and red carpets.

A lot of assumptions come along with wearing makeup– there are stereotypes that girls who wear heavy makeup are self-conscious or vain. However, we love makeup and the fun that comes along with trying a bold, fuchsia lip or a subtle smokey eye.

On the other hand, a minimalistic makeup look lets others know that you are confident in your own skin through your makeup choice. It allows extra time to sleep in, and a fresh face can feel great from time-to-time, especially on long days when you do not feel like reapplying your pretty pink lipstick multiple times.


You do not need to avoid makeup completely (which we definitely do not object to!), but your makeup routine can be oh-so-simple with just a few quick steps. To get a look like Jennifer's, all you need is five or six products.

The trick to being confident with a natural look is starting with a fresh foundation. If you are prone to blemishes, dab a concealer under your eyes and on any blemishes. Next, add a pea-sized amount of foundation all over, including over eyelids and down the neck-line. We love Tarte's Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation because the clay-base formula makes it wearable all day long, and it also has SPF 15 (we love anything with a little added SPF!)

Eyebrows can make a huge difference when going for a minimalistic look, so once you  have gotten rid of any stray hairs, try lightly filling them in with a shimmer-free eye shadow color that is just a shade lighter than your eyebrow color.

Finally, finish off the look by curling your lashes and adding one or two coats of black mascara and a tinted lip gloss. Trust us-- that's all you need.



Hillary Duff and Katy Perry, prove that a minimal-look can be gorgeous worn in different ways.

One last thing– it is officially spring, which means that lots of fun-in-the-sun is on the way. We can not stress the importance of wearing sunscreen enough. Preserving that beautiful skin is crucial to being able to rock the minimal-makeup look as you get older and wrinkles start to develop (which we know seems so far away that it will never happen– but trust us on this one). Use an SPF of at least 30, pay special attention to the face, and reapply after you go in the water or sweat. We love Sun Bum's Sunscreen Face Stick SPF 30 because it makes protecting your face easy and is compact enough to fit in any bag for those on-the-go pool and beach trips with your girlfriends.

Younique 3D Fiber Lash Mascara Review


When I first received my Younique package I was instantly excited when I saw the fancy packaging. The chic black hard case is the perfect first impression for this game-changing mascara. IMG_8189

After just one application, I knew Younique was more than mascara. This was my chance to transform my lashes from dull to noticeable in the matter of minutes.

Using the transplanting gel for the first time was a similar experience to using my old designer mascara. I stopped using drug store mascara a few years ago, and have become accustomed to the volume that $40 mascara gives my lashes. I have to be honest, sometimes the money is worth it, and sometimes it is not. After using Younique one time, I knew that this product delivers significantly better results than my $40 mascara.

What is the difference? The proof is in the Natural Fibers.


I've tried some fiber mascara products in the past, but none hold a candle to Younique. I love that the fibers are 100% natural, and they are made from Green Tea. How cool right? Lashes get thirsty too ;)


Once I put the Natural Fibers on top of the Transplanting Gel, I noticed that several fibers were on my cheeks. This alarmed me a bit. I thought I was doing it wrong. After re- reading the instructions, I realized this was normal. I soldiered through and finished off the look with the transplanting gel for the second round, and was amazed with the amount of volume I saw. As for the fall out from the fibers, just use a clean powder brush and dust them off.

I will be the first to say, this product takes some getting used to, but if you use it for 1 week, and don't love it- I would be surprised. After six days I felt like a pro, and the best part- I don't have to compromise my water proof routine, and Younique will cost me less than my old designer mascara! Cha-ching!

Holiday Beauty Favorites


The Holidays are the perfect time to break out the red lipstick! In fact shimmer is absolutely acceptable during this time as well! With Christmas being TOMORROW and New Years Eve quickly approaching, here are some of our Holiday beauty kit essentials. 1. Red lips always jazz up an outfit. If you don’t already have this staple color in your beauty wardrobe, Ruby Woo from Mac is always a winner. For a cheaper alternative, Revlon Really Red is a great option. 2. Go all out with red nails! This Essie nail polish is a favorite of ours. 3. Play up your eyes with some falsies! Ardell Demi Wispies are sure to add a little glam to your look. 4. If false lashes aren’t for you, the next best thing is Benefit’s They're Real mascara. This miracle working product lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts, and separates lashes. Basically it does EVERYTHING! 5. Shimmer is a must for the Holidays. Use it to highlight your cheekbones, brow bone, and the inner corner of the eyes. Mac’s Soft And Gentle is excellent, but if you don’t have time to run to the store just use a shimmery champagne colored eye shadow!

Editor's Picks: Lipstick Guide


It's not a secret that I love lipstick! I am constantly swatching lip colors at beauty counters EVERYWHERE whenever I can. Plum is always a Fall/Winter staple of mine, so this week I made it my mission to find the perfect shades to add to my beauty stash. Here is what I found. Enjoy! 1. Urban Decay Venom  is probably my top pick out of this batch. I love that it is a "brighter" plum lipstick. Darker shades can sometimes make you look tired, but this one has a brightening ability to it.

2. Smashbox Fig has a modern, sleek feeling. It is described as a red-grape color. It's not too light and not too dark--it's just right.

3. Laura Geller Cabernet Crush is a creamy plum with pink undertones. It's a gorgeous color!

4. Bare Minerals Lead The Way is a rich plum berry. It is the ideal Fall/Winter lipstick color.

It's your turn! What are some of your top picks for plum lipsticks? Let us know in the comments below!

Our Top Five Wedding Makeup Tips


Do you know how important having a makeup artist is on your big day? Tricks like contouring and highlighting, making your makeup weatherproof, and being able to recreate current makeup trends are just some of the many reasons going with a pro is so important. However, some brides just can't work it into their budget so here are some tips for those who need to do it themselves: 1. Exfoliate the night before! Using a gentle scrub while in the shower will help to slough off dead skin cells leaving skin smooth, perfect for applying makeup.

2. Deep cleanse and moisturize skin prior to applying your makeup! This is key when prepping the skin.

3. Use a primer! If you want a flawless, poreless look, don't skip this step. It will give your makeup staying power and diffuse imperfections. We love the primer from Glo Minerals, but if you are a Sephora/Ulta girl Benefit's primer and Smashbox's Photo Finish primers are some of our fav's! Smashbox even has a color correcting primer as well as one for oily skin. If you are on a budget Loreal's Pore a Vanisher is a great dupe for Benefit's at a much more reasonable price.

4. Use an eye primer! Urban Decay's Primer Potion is excellent. Just get it, you will see! What you won't see are smudges, creases, oily lids or your eyeshadow disappear.

5. Practice before the big day.

As a professional makeup artist I strongly encourage my brides to do a run through prior to the wedding. This way the look can be perfected and there is no stress the day of. I love knowing ahead of time exactly what we are doing and what products I'm using. So practice on yourself so you KNOW your makeup will be perfect on the big day.

For Kaley Brie Fuson, our Bride in the images above, I used Glo minerals primers and Satin II Foundation. I used the Golden under eye concealer to highlight and under the eyes and the Perfecting finishing powder to set. I used Sunlight bronzer to contour and Hibiscus (a soft pink) at her cheeks. Since she wanted to look natural I used a few individual lashes and carefully placed them rather than using a whole strip of lashes.

Makeup Steals: Smashbox Bestsellers Set


It's not a secret to my friends that I am a huge fan of Smashbox primers. I've tried numerous brands but, always end up coming back to this one. On a recent trip to Nordstrom Rack I was shocked when I saw the "bestsellers set" from Smashbox for a mere $19. This is a steal since it is currently retailing for $39 online. The set comes with a full size Photo Finish Foundation Primer, a sample size Photo Finish Lid Primer, a sample size Photo Op Eyeshadow Trio, a sample size Layer Lash Primer, and a sample size Full Exposure Mascara.  This is a great set because it allowed me to try four new products without having to spend a ton of cash. The Photo Finish Foundation Primer normally retails for $36 and it's well worth the price! It smooths and perfects the skin, fills in lines and creates the perfect canvas for your foundation.


The Photo Finish Lid Primer retails for $20. I was surprised at how much I liked it. It goes on smooth, doesn't crease, brightens the eye area, and causes eyeshadow to not only show up, but last longer. According to it's description on line, it can even be used under the eyes as a concealer.


The Photo Op Eyeshadow Trio is in "Multi-Flash" and it retails for $28. I love the colors for creating a natural eye. I've found myself reaching for this trio on a daily basis.



The Layer Lash Primer retailing for $19 is the perfect companion to the Full Exposure Mascara which retails for $20. The lash primer strengthens, thickens and protects your lashes. The mascara is paraben free and is reported to create a 104% increase in volume. It also boasts to be smudge proof, non-clumping, and non-flaking.


If you have a Nordstrom Rack in your area, check it out! There may be a few sets left. I have thoroughly enjoyed mine.

Comment below if you score one of these sets or have tried any of these products! We would love to hear from you.

Editor's Pick: Budget Friendly Makeup Brushes


Sam and Nic Chapman from Pixi Woo, teamed up with Real Techniques to launch a makeup brush line made up of synthetic, cruelty-free brushes. Their mission is to provide quality brushes that are affordable and easy to use. After hearing so much buzz around these brushes, I had to try them out myself. I must say that for the price these are excellent brushes. Using my accumulated store points and this on-line coupon from Ulta, I purchased the Core Collection for around $13. Not a bad deal, considering that I received four brushes! IMG_5422-2

{brushes left to right: foundation, detailer, contour, buffing}

Included in this kit is a pointed foundation brush, detailer brush, contour brush, and buffing brush. The set also comes with a compact black case that is excellent for travel. Since these are synthetic brushes they can be used with liquids, creams, or powders.

The pointed foundation brush is a bit small for me. I have found that it works great as a concealer brush for under the eyes and covering up blemishes.

The detailer brush doesn't look like much, but it's the brush that I  have been reaching for every day! It does several jobs well. I love using it with my powder eyeshadows as well as my gel liner to line my eyes. It also is excellent used as a lip brush.

The contour brush is the perfect size for chiseling out your cheek bones. I use it for contouring with my cream foundations, as well as with my powder bronzers.

Last, but certainly not least is the buffing brush. This is my favorite brush from the collection. It applies liquid foundation like a dream. It also is great for buffing in mineral powders. I use it for both.


I love that each of these brushes are able to fulfill more than one role. It cuts down on the number of brushes that I have to carry with me when I travel. Overall, I am impressed with these brushes. If you are new to the makeup world this is a great starter set. Even if you own a ton of brushes already, these brushes are definitely worth trying.

What are your favorite brushes? We'd love to know! Let us know in the comments below.

Lauren Conrad Beauty Tutorial


Lauren Conrad is a beauty and style icon best known for her classic fresh faced makeup. Her trademark cat eye with full lashes, pink cheeks, and a light lip is a look that is not only chic, but perfect for summer. To achieve Lauren's timeless makeup we've rounded up beauty products that will get you the perfect summer look in no time.  



Let's start with Lauren's eyes. Bobbi Brown's gel liner glides on like a dream and is a great way to get Lauren's famous "flick". Ardell lashes in 301 complement this look causing the fullness of the lashes to be on the outside of the eye making the eyes look bigger. Benefit's Their Real  mascara lives up to its name and delivers thick, beautiful lashes that complete this look. Keep the eyeshadow simple and minimal. Urban Decay's Naked Basics palette has a good range of shades that are great for achieving a lightly contoured eye.

Lauren's skin is flawless yet natural. Makeup Forever's HD foundation covers, without looking cakey. It gives a nice luminous, healthy look to the skin. Set with Mac's Mineralize Skinfinish Natural powder to stay in line with a fresh natural finish. To keep the look fresh, use cream blush such as Flower's cheek color in Primrose and Proper. Highlight with Benefit's Watt's Up for a soft glow. Dust on Nar's bronzer on your temples and cheeks for a subtle sun-kissed look.

For the lips choose a pink liner and lipstick such as NYX Nude Pink lip liner paired with Mac's Lovelorn to keep the look fresh and natural.

Lauren's makeup is soft and feminine, with a nod to the sixties. It's a look that is perfect for the day time and can easily transition into a night-time look by simply darkening the outer corners of the eye, adding a little more bronzer and changing the lip to a deeper pink or red.

What's your ideal summer look?

Cargo Cosmetics: Get Your Glam On


Cargo Cosmetics sent us over their “Lets Meet In Paris” kit that had been in stores for the holidays. With many other products to test, I was not able to get this review up until now! But, as they say “good things come to those who wait.” If you are looking for the ultimate glam kit, look no further. These five products will have you red carpet ready in no time!

Let’s start with eyes shall we. I have to admit I am an eyeliner snob. My checklist for a quality eyeliner is:

“Does it have good color pay off?” “Does it have smooth application?” “Is it smudgeproof?” “Is it waterproof?” “Is it longwearing”

I am not easily impressed, however I was with Cargo’s Swimmables Eye Pencil in Black Sea. It met all of my criteria and exceeded my expectations with a stand out fourteen hour wear. This pencil reminds me of Urban Decay’s 24-7 Glide On Eye Pencil which is a staple in my makeup artist kit.

Pair this eyeliner with Cargo’s TexasLash Mascara and you have a match made in heaven! This mascara is all about volume, which is perfect for a glamorous evening out.

As for lips, Cargo’s got you covered in that arena as well. They have their Reverse Lip Liner to keep your lipstick from feathering. Apply this liner around the outside of your lips to clean up the lip line, add definition and lock the lipstick into place. Cargo’s HD  Picture Perfect Lip Primer goes hand in hand with the lip liner. It smoothes, defines and plumps as it extends the wear of lip color. After this is applied, Cargo’s Essential Lip Color in “Paris” is the perfect shade of red to finish your look. It is a highly pigmented color that hydrates and plumps the lip throughout its wear.


These products are perfect for an evening out, but can also be worn during the day. So what are you waiting for? Go get your glam 0n!


Happy Styling,


Flower Beauty Review: Part 2


Oh, the power of lipstick. It’s extraordinary how such a small item can seemingly transform not only a woman’s outward appearance, but also her attitude. Thanks again to Flower for sending us some fabulous product to sample. Last week we reviewed face products and today it's all about the lips.


Flower's Kiss Stick High Shine Lip Color in Berry Bloom is a beautiful shade of lipstick. The formula is rich and creamy, it glides on smooth, and has a ton of shine. The quality of this lipstick is impressive and so is the price. This formula is definitely a favorite in the Flower line.


Flower's Kiss Stick Velvet Lip Color in Desert Flower looks similar to Berry Bloom. The difference is that it's a bit lighter and it's matte. Matte formulas have a tendency to be drying so exfoliating the lips and priming them with lip balm is key.


Kiss Stick Velvet Lip Color in Rosey Garden is a bright, vivid pink. It has a fresh, modern feel about it. It's great for days when you want to add a little pop of color to your beauty regime.


The Flower High Shine On Lip Gloss Wand was voted MVP by Redbook in 2013. It's hard to find a quality lip gloss at drug store prices, so finding this product is a gold mine. The formula is rich, moisturizing and long lasting. This will be a definite re-purchase in the days ahead.


Kuddos to Flower for providing us with quality products that are affordable. Flower is sold exclusively at Walmart. To purchase the above products you can visit your local Walmart or go online to walmart.com. For more reviews on Flower  beauty products click here and here.

Flower Beauty Review: Part 1


Today we are talking about one of my favorite topics MAKEUP! After a recent post reviewing Drew Barrymore’s cosmetics line Flower, the company was kind enough to send me a few more products to sample. Thanks guys! So let’s get started shall we?! IMG_3038-2

Let's start with their  Zoom-In Ultimate Mascara. Whether you want volume, lengthening, thickening or ALL three, you can have it. This mascara has a unique brush that is customizable. I received the mascara in brown which works great on the days that I want a natural look.


Cream blushes have become a daily staple of mine. Flower's Win Some, Rouge Some Cream Blush in the color Primrose and Proper is the perfect peach/pink color. The product goes on smooth, has great color pay off, and lasts throughout the day. This is a definite re-purchase for me.


Finding a quality drugstore foundation can be a daunting task, but Flower just made it is easier. Flower's Skincognito is a full coverage stick foundation. It is has an ultra creamy feel and glides on smooth. Oh and did I mention it's paraben free! I found this foundation to have excellent staying power and great coverage. As with any foundation to ensure the best coverage and application, I would highly recommend exfoliating, moisturizing, and priming beforehand. This foundation has a tendency to highlight any dry patches on the skin. For the best wear, I preferred using a primer underneath the foundation and setting it with powder.

Flower is exclusively sold at Walmart. If you want to purchase any of the above products, you can visit your local store or go online to walmart.com. In next week's post I will be reviewing lip products from Flower so stay tuned.

See you next week!

Happy Styling,

Clarasonic Mia 2 Review


After hearing so much about the Clarisonic brush, I felt as though I had to try it in order to see if all of the hype was true! And....I have to say that it is! I absolutely love my Clarisonic Mia 2 and could not be more happy with it. IMG_0673

The Clarisonic Mia 2 is a professional caliber brush that cleans the skin deeply. It clears pores and cleanses skin thoroughly so that your skin care products can absorb better. According to the company, results include 6x better cleansing than manual cleansing, reduced pores, fine lines, and wrinkles and improved skin tone.

My Mia 2 came with an extra brush head, a travel case, a magnetic charger, and two cleansers. Just to warn you ahead of time, it takes a full 24 hours to charge. Those 24 hours felt like forever to me; I could not wait to try it out! The Mia 2 is simple to use. It has a built-in timer that is pre-set with the amount of time that you are supposed to use on different parts of your face. Genius!

Here is how easy it is to use the Mia 2:

  • Remove your eye make up.
  • Wet your face and the brush.
  • Apply cleanser to the brush head or directly onto your face.IMG_0778
  • Turn Mia 2 on and select which speed you want: low or normal.
  • Follow the timer prompts. 20 seconds of your forehead, 20 seconds on your nose/chin, and 10 seconds on each cheek. Mia 2 will turn off automatically after one minute.IMG_0720
  • Rinse face, dry and apply moisturizer.

After using the Mia 2, my skin has never felt so clean! Not only does my skin look and feel great, but the Mia 2 is actually fun to use. I find myself looking forward to cleaning my face, instead of dreading it like before. The results from using the Mia 2 are that my skin is clean, clear, and soft. Another perk is that my makeup goes on smooth and looks great. The Mia 2 is definitely worth the money; I look at it as an investment in my skin.
