Bare Minerals

Pop of Patriotic Color

I work full time for a PR & Marketing agency, luckily we don’t have to wear suits or full blown business attire everyday, but we can’t get too crazy, so I’m always trying to mix casual, professional, and fashionable by adding a pop of color or fun accessories to my outfits! The other day I had a nice combination, which left me feeling somewhat patriotic; check it out…

Baby blue gap sweater & grey slacks with pops of red 🙂 (I also match our garbage can... lol)
Red snakeskin watch with small diamond details, and a red woven belt.
These cutesy, victorian, girly Manolo Blahnik heels that my boss snagged for me at a tent sale 🙂
The heel is super short and they're incredibly comfortable 🙂
Simple hair and makeup (obviously I had time to do my hair this morning ;)), my Bare Minerals READY eye shadow palette has been my go to lately. And of course...pink lips! 😉
Always have to end with a shot of the mani! I've been rocking a Gelish french manicure all week 😉

How do you try to mix fun & color into your work wardrobe?

3 Mascara Reviews: I have a new fave!

Every woman wants long, luscious lashes, and there are hundreds of products on the market that promise to elongate them. However, many of those products don’t exactly work. I’m lucky to have fairly long lashes to begin with, but I still love to go to town with my mascara, and make them look even longer.

Over the holidays I got three new mascaras, and was surprised to find a new favorite!

Check out my reviews below…

1) NYC Sky Rise Lengthening Mascara ($1.99)

(I was just swatching these mascaras, so excuse my not-so-perfect, crooked-looking lashes. I usually spend more time on them)

Conclusion:

I thought I was going to LOVE DiorShow, but I don’t like how it made my lashes so clumpy. The NYC mascara is perfect to just throw in your bag for everyday use. But my absolute favorite was the Bare Minerals! I don’t usually use Bare Escentual products, so I’m glad I got the chance to try this mascara out. The brush hits every lash- and when you have enough time to apply it correctly, they look amazing! I highly recommend; this product is definitely a keeper!

What kind of mascara do you use?
