BEAUTY REPORT

I'm a little bit of a makeup junkie, and I've switched up a lot of the products I normally use for summer. Here are some of my favorite products!

1. Bobbi Brown's Extra Repair foundation gives beautiful flawless coverage that's buildable, and it's really moisturizing. I have slightly oily skin but it doesn't make me too shiny. This is my favorite foundation I've ever used!

2. Guerlain Meteorites. I've been using them for years, my mom turned me on to them. The slightly shimmery pastel color corrective powders make you look radiant.

3. Guerlain Meteorites Light Diffusing Perfecting Primer. This product was sent to me by the sweet people at Guerlain, and its completely unlike the other slippery silicone primers that are out there. This makes your makeup last forever!

4. Stila Convertible Color in Lillium. Perfect thing to throw in your purse when you go out, you can dab a little of this cream color on your lips and cheeks. I know so many girls who love this.

5. Guerlain Face Powder Compact. This was another product sent to me by Guerlain and I carry this in my purse whenever I go out because it blots out shine and gives a little sheer coverage. Also, it's super pale! I have such a hard time finding pale products.

6. Beauty is Life eyeshadows. I am in love with this beauty line, and their amazing color range. I never thought I'd be wearing baby blue and yellow eyeshadow, but these colors are too pretty to pass by and I've gotten a lot of compliments on them. The blue is called Sailor, and its a pale Anna Karina-esque color. The yellow is called Gold.

7. Guerlain's Six Color Beauty Quad. not only does this come in gorgeous old Hollywood style packaging but the pallette range is exquisite. Guerlain also sent me this product.

8. T Le Clerc Eye Brow Pencil in Blond. I'm pretty nuts about my eyebrows and this pencil is perfect for shaping.

9. Cle de Peau Eyeshadow Quad in Thulite. I love doing a pale shimmery pink on the lid and smoking out the creases with grey. It's a little bit of a sixties pallette! It's my new everyday look.

10. L'oreal Lineur Intense liquid eyeliner. If you find liquid eyeliner challenging like I do, you'll love this. It's so easy to control.

11. Anna Sui's Vivid Lipsticks. I know it sounds cheesy but the colors are all very 'fashion forward'. There's Barbie pink, peachy nudes, black, and everything in between!! I love these, they were sent to me by Urban Outfitters a long time ago. The Rouge lipstick range looks very nice too.

12. Cle de Peau Silky Lipsticks. Half gloss half lipstick in really gorgeous colors. These last forever. My sister turned me on to these.

My new favorite red lipstick is Beauty is Life's lipstick in Royal 24. It's got a touch of orange in it that makes it a little 70's and not at all clownish.

Before I sign off, I do have one more reccomendation, especially for those living in hot climates. Urban Decay's All Nighter Long-lasting Makeup Setting Spray. It keeps your face in place, no joke.

Hope this answers any questions, you can tweet me if you want to know anything else!

P.S. If you haven't watched any of Pixiwoo's makeup tutorials and feel a little lost when it comes to makeup application, I highly reccomend them!! I've gotten so much better at my makeup just by watching them.

PRADA FAUX-FUR DIY

My mom and I both loved the fox stoles shown at Prada's spring 2011 show. Every picture I saw of them in editorials and fashion week photos (and there were a lot) made me want one more.
Last week my mom announced her mission to DIY a faux-fur version for us...a week and a delivery of crazy muppet fur later and I love her finished product! Totally whimsical.

I chose a two tone combination of checkered cheshire-cat faux fur and neon pink shag for my stole, with turqoise lining. 

My mom matched hers to a pair of her new Miu Miu shoes. I love it!!!

 

 

 

If you want a how-to, go to my mom's blog! She is the mastermind behind it, and she knocked it out in under two hours. Thanks for the stole Mom, we're going to have fun with these :)

DON'T WANNA THINK ABOUT IT

It has become too hot to even think about getting dressed. I've worn this outfit two days in a row. On top of the triple digit heat, we've had hurricane-like wind gusts. I feel like I'm living under a hairdryer! I do enjoy a good halter top though, so I guess there has never been a better time to get them out.

Wearing a Prada nylon skirt I got at an outlet mall four years ago, a 70's striped halter top, and Chloe criss-cross patent leather heels from spring 2007, 70's choker necklace and an 80's Carlos Falchi clutch.

TOMBOY

I love swing skirts, 50's prom dresses, and puffy shoulders with tapering sleeves but sometimes I have to wonder why because on the inside I have never felt very feminine. An outfit like this is a little more true to my nature. When I got these mannish Rugby carpenter pants this winter I wore them just about every day for three months straight, so it was nice to revisit them. I got the J Crew shirt I got on sale last week, and the suspenders are The Dress & Co. from Hotel55 boutique in Tokyo. The hat was a last minute addition that I stole from my dad, and the buckle sandals are Giuseppe Zanotti.

BLACK TIE

Keeping it all black in a drapey 70s blouse and Nannette Lepore skirt. Can you stand seeing the Miu Miu's one more time?? I love them.

Thanks for the wet one, Denise! The square sunglasses I'm wearing below are Ralph Lauren.

NEW MIU MIU'S

Scored these amazing Miu Miu's sale shopping yesterday--they are my new favorite shoes! Not only are they beautiful, but they are incredibly comfortable. Miu Miu knocked it out of the park with their shoes this season...!

SULTRY SUMMER

Mom and I had an idea to give the back patio a little makeover--we thought this would be a fun idea for an outdoor summer party. It was all done with old rugs, tons of throw pillows, and these big brass candle holders my mom has been collecting.

As soon as we set it up, we realized we had a problem on our hands--Kim the chihuahua decided it was totally her style. As you can see from the photos she was determined to lounge on every surface and basically treat the new set-up as her personal chihuahua jungle gym. So glad you liked it, Kim ;)
