Wednesday

Picture 044Picture 067Pink merino v-neck from J. Crew, black pencil skirt from Old Navy, black tights from Target, black heeled oxfords from BCBGirls.

Hair was wet but not washed, added pureology thickening lotion, dried with paddle brush then Croc straightening iron to smooth.

Makeup is Revlon ColorStay under eye concealer in Light Medium, then Rimmel Lasting Finish foundation in Soft Beige. Nars blush in Orgasm, Smashbox Soft Lights in Tint on eyes and cheekbones, Revlon ColorStay shadow quad in Neutral Khakis – the ivory in inner corners and on lid. Lashes curled, two coats Cover Girl lash blast in Black and Maybelline UltraLiner in black on top lash line. On lips is Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Pink Afterglow.

Got a sample of this Rimmel foundation in the latest issue of Lucky. Well the Soft Beige is a decent match for my skin and it does seem to stay on… but that's where my compliments end. It feels icky on the skin, like a layer. It feels dry and rough on my dry spots, and obvious and weird on my T-zone. Under my nose is dry and slightly itchy from this (my most sensitive part of my face), as well as around my eye area. Feels like cheap foundation… not worth even a separate post about this stuff.

    Girl, have you lost weight? You are looking smaller NOT that you need to. I think you are so pretty regardless.

    I like this outfit a lot. I also really like the green shirt you were wearing last week, and the red dress! These are 3 of my favorite outfits that you wear! I’m really into colors right now too. I’ve been wearing a lot of pinks and greens!

    I am glad the reviews are helpful!

    As for a fashion blog – clear pictures are a necessity; if you can use a tripod so you don’t have distorted fuzzy images like I do through a mirror. Prepare to receive a lot of emails about where you bought items, how old they are, how much they cost. I may sound goofy typing all these details, but I do them… even the full-length shots because you readers asked 🙂

    And prepare to have tough skin – you can’t please all the people all of the time and when it comes to fashion, people don’t seem to have a filter – anything goes! 🙂

    Good luck! 🙂

    I second Joy’s comments. I ordered a buttload of samples from Afterglow after reading your review and LOVE them. By far the best mineral makeup I’ve tried, including bare escentuals…

    Delurking to say that I LOVE your blog. Can’t wait to see what you’re wearing every day!

    I’m giving the fashion blogging thing a try myself – any advice for a beginner?

    I appreciate how honest you are about makeup. I’ve gotten some good makeup by following your likes and dislikes.
