Skirts, the perfect fit for you.

With summer right around the corner I have been looking at many skirts to add to my closet. Some people love skirts and some hate them. I thought I would put together a little guide on different types of skirts. Hope this helps! 





What is your favorite? I personally love maxi skirts, they are just so easy to wear and are so flattering. I also did a guide on shirts as well. Click here to check it out!

Organize it

So I figured since my face products in the bathroom were looking like a hot mess, it was time to clean it. Some Spring cleaning if you say! 


As you can see everything is just all over the place. I noticed  myself putting the product wherever after I use it, and then searching for it when I go to use it again the next day. 


So I just bought some simple clear acrylic trays at the container store. These trays have helped me tremendously, now every product has a home. After I used something instead of putting it wherever I put back in it's original spot, so now the shelf doesn't look like a disaster anymore!  I just love how simple and clean it looks, and so easy to find everything. 

Have you been doing any Spring cleaning?

The order of applying makeup

1. Moisturizer: This step is very important before applying your face makeup. Some makeup can be very drying, so it is important to have a moisturized base. This is crucial especially if you have dry skin. If you notice that your foundation may leave you very dry, make sure to moisturize and you will see a difference!

2. Primer: I love using primer, it gives a base for your foundation and helps it last longer. You can also use a BB cream or a CC cream instead of a primer. I would not skip using a primer, it really does give you that lasting power you need. 

3. Foundation: Use your favorite foundation. It may take you a while to find a foundation you love, but once you do you'll see what a difference foundation makes. A good drugstore foundation is Revlon Color Stay, I HIGHLY recommend it! Haha do you think I used the word foundation enough?.....foundation.

4. Concealer: This is another very important step. Never skip on concealing under your eyes, it makes a tremendous difference. If you have dark circles or bags under your eyes, concealer will be your best friend. Also always go a couple shades lighter then your natural skin tone, you want your concealer to brighten under your eyes not make things look darker. If you have blemishes on your face use a concealer to hide them. A green tone concealer works great on toning down the redness in blemishes. 

5. Powder: Once you have given time for your foundation to set go ahead and powder your face. Powder sets your foundation in place and prevents it from sliding all over your face. Whenever you use and cream or liquid products you need to set it with a powder. Also, don't forget to set your concealer with a powder as well to prevent it from major creasing! 

6. Bronzer: Use a bronzer to warm up your face. You can contour with it or just use it to add a little bit of warmth to your face. You don't always have to use a bronzer, but it really does help give your face some demention. Sometimes when you use a foundation and do not use any bronzer you tend to look flat and bronzer helps to solve that problem.

7. Blush: Ohh how I love Blush, it makes such a difference. When we use foundation we cover up our rosy cheeks. Add a little bit of blush to the apples of your cheeks to bring back some color to your face. 

8. Highlighter: I don't always use a highlighter, but when I do use it I use it on my cheek bones (right above the apples of your cheeks). It gives your look a bit more of a glow as well as more added dimension. 

9. Setting spray: ALWAYS use a setting spray. I used to never use one, and when I started too I noticed a huge difference in the lasting power. A setting spray makes your makeup last so much longer. 

I hope you found this helpful! I promise if you use these products in this order you will see a major improvement in your makeup as well as lasting power.

Arbonne foundation review

I have been using the Arbonne foundation for a good month now, so I figured it was a good time to do a review. I love sharing my thoughts with you guys, and giving you an idea of what the product is like! There were things that I liked about this foundation and some that I did not.

                                          no makeup                Shade- Porcelain              with makeup

*covered zit
*tones down redness
*did last a fairly good amount of time (around 6 hours)

*sets extremely powdery 
*looks heavy if you use more then one layer 
* $42.00

I did use a moisturizer as well as a primer. I would say that the foundation has medium coverage. I did try to build up to a full, but the it just looked extremely heavy. When it sets it looks very powdery, I even tried wearing the foundation without a setting powder, it made no difference. I have heard many good reviews about this foundation so I wanted to try it out myself, and I really was not in love with the foundation. Also, for that price, I have drugstore foundations that I enjoy much more. 

I have oily combination skin so I can only imagine what this foundation would look like on a person with dry skin. It would most likely cling to all your dry patches and make you look even more dry.

Over all I would give this product a 5 out of 10. I probably wouldn't buy this product again, I achieve better results with my other foundations. You may not experience the same results as me, but to me this foundation didn't really workout with my skin. 

I know its a bit hard to tell on the picture, but to me it looks very powdery. I just feel like I look very flat and the foundation isn't flattering at all.

Have you guys tried this foundation?
