Makeup + Layers

Happy Monday! What a beautiful weekend it was. This weather was all about layering for me. You know your weekend goes by way to fast when you think it is Saturday,  Sunday morning…Whoops! Well today I am sharing with you my favorite trend (fringe crop jeans) from Tjmaxx and also what Makeup I am wearing.

I always loved a natural look and lately I have really been getting into makeup and watching tutorials. I will be sitting up in bed watching them late at night and Andrew will always tell me to go to bed! HA! I have had quit a bit of people asking me what products I use. To be honest I have been playing around with a few brands these past few months, this look does not include highlighter which I have recently been playing with a few ones I like that I will share soon 🙂

My skin is very sensitive so that is the main reason why I switch around to see what works best with my skin. Also with the seasons changing, of course you have to switch that up.

Below I have share what products I have used to accomplish this subtle look and light eye. I love a full coverage look but also when it looks natural. I by no means am a professional and am still learning. So for those of you who are newbies to the makeup bandwagon, follow along with me and we will learn together!

half up twist on the plaza

You guys I have some thick hair and am currently  in the process of trying to grow it out so lets just say doing my hair sometimes is not fun! Lately though I have been really getting into styling it more, rather than just curling it or straightening it! I found out that by curling it so often I was damaging my hair so much. Because it’s summer time I know we all like to throw it up or do something simple but yet cute to make a statement! This is been  my favorite go to summer hair style. To accomplish those little wave curls I simply used my straightener!

Today my hair still had some curl it in so I am now wearing it in high pony! I don’t wash my hair that often… I know it sounds gross but I notice my hair way healthier after 3-4 days not washing it! I use a really awesome Dry shampoo I shared with you guys a few posts ago!  I know some of you are thinking well does she shower?! OF COURSE! I just put my hair is a cute cap and do my thang! ( I follow plenty of other bloggers/ friends that also don’t clean their hair for a lot longer )

I am thinking about starting some tutorials on hair and just simply sharing more videos on my blog! What do y’all think?! Let me know what you want to see!!
