Winter Beauty with Adore Me

December 29, 2015
     Even though it's been 70 degrees, which is hardly fall weather, it's been officially winter for a week now and I've 100% taken advantage of the season change in my makeup routine.  I typically rotate between two or three looks each season and I've been wanting to do a post featuring my makeup for a while, so when I came across  Adore Me and their infographic I became inspired to create a post showcasing my winter palette and the products I'm going to be using, so it was perfect timing!

When I saw pairing one it reminded me of the makeup I wore in this outfit post! I loved this makeup look so much, so I decided to recreate it using my favorite winter products!

In the winter, my skin gets super dry, so I've started using eye primer to prevent my eyeshadow from creasing and also to make the application smoother. Lorac's Behind the Scenes Eyeshadow Primer came with my palette, so I used that and loved it!

I always use the same eyeshadow as a base for the main color, and that is Sultry from theBalm's NUDE 'tude palette.  It's a perfect match for my skin tone, and great for blending my eyeshadow.  The main shadow I used for this look is Unattainable from the Lorac Unzipped palette. This eye shadow is so pretty and shimmery, but also not too over the top for everyday!  I then used Uncensored from the Lorac Unzipped palette on my waterline and Serious from theBalm's NUDE 'tude palette on my tightline.

For mascara, I like more natural looking lashes for every day but I also wanted something hydrating for the winter. I got Maybelline Full 'N Soft Mascara which was perfect for this look!

When I go for a statement lip color, I use a lipstick of my mom's which is Interface Cosmetic's Lipstick in Rapture. It's super old and impossible to find, but it's a rich, deep purple. As is, it's a bit unwearable so I like to layer NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss in Nude Peach on top to lighten it up and balance out the plum color.  I always use Maybelline's Baby Lips Dr. Rescue;  it's the only thing that can keep my lips soft in the winter!

I hope you all enjoyed this post, and I would love if you recreated this look or another one in Adore Me's winter makeup set!  Leave a comment below letting me know which winter beauty trend is your favorite! Stay tuned, xo Lauren.

Holiday Wish List 2015

December 1, 2015
Holiday Wish List 2015

I know that the holiday season is about so much more than gifts, but between my birthday and Christmas I always compile a list of things I wouldn't mind receiving. Last year I also posted a holiday wish list, and I think/hope it helped you all get ideas for your list to Santa, or things you could get your friends (also my mom reads this and she really wants to know what I want)!

Since I first laid eyes on this palette I became obsessed with it.  You all know that I love nude/gold shades for my eyeshadow, so this palette is right up my alley!

If you remember from last year, I asked and received these boots in brown. They are so comfortable and have quickly become my favorite boots.  Recently, I've been wearing a lot of black so I'd love to have a pair of black boots!

I love festive pj's, but I realized that I haven't had a pair since I was a kid. These are so classic, and I'd love to wear them around on Christmas day!

I love my monogram necklace, but I'd also like to have another personalized necklace. I've lived in the same house for most of my life, and I'd love to have its coordinates with me at all times.

This one is a bit of a guilty pleasure because I'm not in need of a new pair of sneakers, but I'm in love with these! If you take a look at my blog these shoes match my aesthetic perfectly!

I've been eyeing this wallet for a few years now, and I think it's finally time for an upgrade. Tory Burch is great quality so it will last for a long time, and super easy for everyday use!

This is another thing that I've been lusting over for a while.  I've never had a real perfume, I usually just use Victoria Secret or Bath and Body Works body sprays, but the scent of this perfume is so much more mature!

I love reading books about business and how to succeed. Aliza Licht has years of experience, so I know I will gain a lot from reading this book!

I've never had a robe, and I think it'd be incredibly useful. The VS ones are classic and super cute!

I hope everyone knows that I in no way, shape, or form expect to get all or any of these gifts.  I'm always super grateful for any and everything that I get, this wish list is just to give my parents an idea of what I've been eyeing! Leave me comments letting me know what is on your wish list! Stay tuned, xo Lauren.
