Get the Look: Olivia Palermo Makeup Look!

Olivia Palermo is often seen with a natural makeup look with dewy finish that is perfect for all year round, especially during the summer. My take on The City star's look includes an illuminated and bronzed face makeup look with a pink-toned eyeshadow look, which she is often seen wearing in her more natural makeup looks. Olivia Palermo then usually finishes the look is a natural rose color to compliment the dewy makeup. This look would be great during the day, but could also be smoked out a little for a more natural look.

  • Foundation: Olivia Palermo is often seen with flawless and luminous skin, so to recreate her look, start the makeup look by applying foundation is desired.
  • Bronzer: Olivia Palermo has a bronze glow with not too much heavy contouring. Using a large bronzer brush, apply to the hollows of your cheeks, temples, and down your jawline for an overall bronze look while contouring a little.
  • Light Pink Blush: To add a little color, apply a little bit of blush to the apples of you cheeks.
  • Champagne Highlighter: To get her dewy look, finish off the look with a bit of highlighter to the top of your cheekbones and a little down the bridge of your nose and blend well.

  • Pink Champagne Eyeshadow: Start off the eye makeup look by applying a pink champagne eyeshadow all over you lid, up to your crease. A great eyeshadow for this look would be the Urban Decay eyeshadow in "Sin"!
  • Matte Taupe Brown Eyeshadow: Using a fluffy brush, apply the eyeshadow to your crease and outer corner and blend well for a little definition. Next, apply a little with a pencil brush to the outer corner of your bottom lash line.
  • Black Gel Eyeliner: Olivia Palermo is often seen wearing eyeliner and to recreate her look, apply a simple thin to medium line of black gel eyeliner from the outer corner of your eye to the inner corner of your eye.
  • Black Lengthening Mascara: Finish off the eye look with a lengthening mascara to your upper lashes and a light coat to your bottom lashes.

Lastly, apply a rose pink lipgloss, such as Revlon's Colorburst Lipgloss in "Peony" to finish off the makeup. This color will compliment the eyeshadow and bronzed skin beautifully!

Beach Fashion | Summer 2014

Items shown above: Aerie Bandeau Swimsuit | LC Lauren Conrad Flip Flops | RVCA Ruffle Maxi Dress | Beach by Florabella's Wide Brim Hat | Madewell Tote Bag | Ray-Ban Aviator Sunglasses

Beach fashion is one of my favorite parts about summer! Beach fashion is often very relaxed and easy to put together. This summer, maxi dresses and stripes have been in style and are great ways to freshin' your wardrobe. A white maxi dress is a classic clothing summer clothing staple, especailly for the beach and striped swimsuits and tote bags are a great ways to add some details to your outfits. Sunglasses and a nice white sun hat are also fantastic ways to protect your face from the strong rays while in the sun.

Lazy Day Tag!

We all have our lazy days. Those days where we don't feel like putting effort into the day and how we look and would rather lay on the bed or sitting on the couch all day. The Lazy Day Tag has been going around Youtube, and since it's been a while, I thought it was time to post a new tag. I think that this tag in particular is appropriate for summer, because I usually associate summer with being laid back and more than often lazy.

1. What is your lazy day skin care routine? 
My skin care routine is pretty much the same everything, but if I'm in a hurry in the morning, I keep it simple by using my Clean & Clear Continuous Control Cleanser. I then moisturise with my Neutragena Oil-Free Moisture for Sensitive Skin and Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel.

2. What is your lazy day makeup? 
If I'm not feeling like wearing a lot of makeup, I will usually just keep it simple by applying my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer and curl my lashes and apply the Maybelline Mega Plush mascara. I will also usually quickly groom my brows with the Maybelline clear mascara. I will then finish off with a little bit of Rimmel Stay Matte translucent powder since I very oily skin.

3. What is your lazy day hair style? 
I don't usually do my hair on an everyday basis, so on a lazy day, my hair routine doesn't usually change. I will usually either keep my hair down or throw it up in a high pony tail or top knot.

4. What is your lazy day outfit? 
My lazy day outfit would definitely be yoga pants and a sweater. On a lazy day, I don't like feeling restricted in jeans, so yoga pants are a go-to look.

5. What is your lazy day scent? 
On lazy days, I will usually skip on the scents, but I will sometimes just wear a scented Bath and Body Works lotion. It is easy and it's like hitting two birds with one stone by the lotion being both moisturizing and scented!

6. What is your lazy day pampering product/routine? 
On my lazy days, I will usually not pamper myself. The most that I will pamper myself on a lazy day would be by just watching a good reality television show.

7. What is your lazy day snack/food? 
My lazy day food would probably be either soup, pasta, or chocolate. Soup and pasta are both very easy meals to make and chocolate is always a quick and satisfying snack.

8. What is your lazy day drink? 
I will either just drink water or tea. I don't usually drink soda or soft drinks and usually instead go for tea since it's relaxing and soothing.

Peach | Summer Trend 2014

Peach is a soft and elegant color that adds a bit of delicateness to any outfit. Since it's more pink-toned than nude colors, it won't 'disappear' in your outfit. Peach also looks great against a nice summer tan and is a great way to add a subtle pop of color to an outfit. I personally think that the combo of white and peach (such as a peach top and white shorts) is a great easy summer outfit that is still on trend and chic. Peach colors are also easy to find when it comes to beauty products. Many brands have peach toned nail polish colors and blushes. Peach is definitely a color to try out this summer!

Get the Style: Taylor Swift Summer Street Style

When doesn't Taylor Swift get it right? Taylor Swift can always be counted on if you're looking for a style icon who has classic style. This summer, she has been seen wearing a lot of shorts and skirts with her classic oxfords, but has also been wearing brighter colors that are perfect for the summer! To recreate her outfits, the most basic clothing pieces can be put together to get a perfect casual summer outfit. And don't forget to finish the outfit off with a classic red lip!

Outfit #1
Striped Tee, Jean Shorts, Black Satchel, Oxfords, Necklace, Sunglasses
This outfit is a classic Taylor Swift outfit combining stripes with oxford flats! This outfit would be perfect for a casual day out with friends or family! Start the outfit by pairing a basic black/navy and white striped tee with a pair of cuffed denim shorts. For shows, Taylor Swift was wearing a pair of heeled oxfords, but any pair of brown oxfords would work for this outfit. For accessories, wear a black satchel and small pendant necklace with a pair of red wafer sunglasses!

Outfit #2
Dress, Bag, Heels, Earrings, Lip Crayon
This outfit is more bold and colorful compared to many of the outfits seen on Taylor Swift, while still being classic and well put together. This outfit is fun and perfect for anything from a day out with friends to family get together. The center of this outfit is Taylor's beautiful and colorful dress. Start off with a short white dress with red floral prints. Add a green crossbody and green heels to accent the dress. Although it can't be seen the in photo above, Taylor Swift was also wearing a pair of gold or silver butterfly earrings. Finish off the outfit with a classic brightened red lip color.

Outfit #3
Top, Earrings, Skirt, Bag, Heels
This third outfit that Taylor Swift wore reminds me of something that she would have worn in her "Begin Again" music video, since it is a more vintage look that incorporates lighter and delicate colors. To get this look, start off with a white flowy blouse paired with a light blue skater skirt. For shoes and handbags, any pair of low gray suede heels would look perfect with the skirt and faded brown purse. Lastly, for jewelry, even though you couldn't see what earrings Taylor was wearing, she is often seen with gold or silver studs, which would work well with the faded and subdued colors in this outfit.

Outfit #4
Sweater, Shorts, Shirt, Heels, Bag, Rings
This outfit is a more professional outfit than the previous outfits shown, but can still be worn for a day or lunch out with friends or family. To recreate this outfit, first pair a white collared button down shirt with a navy cardigan or blazer. For the pop of color, pair a pair of dark fuchsia shorts with the outfit. For shoes, Taylor Swift was wearing a her classic pair of brown heeled oxford. Lastly, finish off the outfit by accessorising with a gray satchel handbag and few gold or silver rings.

Maxi Dresses | Summer Fashion 2014

Items shown above: Revolve Clothing Strapless Maxi Dress | Red Dress Boutique Strapless Maxi Dress | Lulu's Striped Maxi Dress | Lush Knit Maxi DressRed Dress Boutique Maxi Dress

One of the biggest fashion trends this summer is maxi dresses. They can be found at almost every clothing store and in every color and pattern. Maxi dresses can be dressed up with a pair of wedges or heels or can be worn more casually with sandals or a chambray shirt. They are very comfortable and effortless while being an outfit all on their own! If you are worried that a dress will be too long for you, it can be easily hemmed to your desired length. The best part about the maxi dress trend is that there is no shaving required!

Maxi Dress Outfit Ideas...


Dress, Shirt (unbuttoned and rolled sleeves), Heels, Handbag, Necklace

Blue, White, and Stripes | Happy 4th of July!

Items shown above: Top: Forever 21 (similar here) | Shorts: American Eagle | Belt: American Eagle (similar here) | Sandals: Jessica Simpson (similar here) | Nail Polish: Essie nail polish in "Fiji"

Happy Fourth of July! This my first ever 'outfit of the day' post, and what better way to start off than on Fourth of July? Ever since I have started using Bloglovin' and following fashion blogs, I have always wanted to post some outfits on my blog. However, I never got around to it because of school and I'm not entirely comfortable posting pictures of myself on my blog (but I'm trying to get over that 'fear') so posting this post is kinda a big deal for me. I am also still trying to figure out good locations, posing, and how to make my photos better quality. I am also by no means an expert at styling outfits and don't have a very diverse closet since I don't typically branch out with fashion, so finding outfits that are barely cute enough to put on the internet has been a little bit of a struggle. I have, however, been trying to make more effort into exploring different kinds of clothing and trends.

As for the outfit, I have always been a sucker for stripes and thought this navy and white striped top from Forever 21 would be appropriate for the Fourth of July. Since I'm just going to a casual Fourth of July BBQ get-together with some friends from home, I just paired the casual top with some white shorts and white and gold sandals. As for representing red in my outfit, I'm thinking about painting my nails with a red polish to truly make this a red, white and blue outfit!

Americana Fashion | Summer 2014

Items shown above: J.Crew Boatneck TeeIcon Eyewear Aviator Sunglasses | J.Crew Muscle Tank | Francesca's Stars and Stripes Kimono | TOMS 'Classic American' Slip-Ons | Forever 21 Americana Cut Off Shorts | Lulu's Red DressSoprano Skater Skirt | Fossil 'Key-Per' Crossbody | Keds Lace Ups

The Fourth of July is just around the corner and I thought it would be appropriate to write a post on the Americana trend that I have been seeing in stores. The Americana trend crosses with the nautical trend, involving stripes, but also stars and almost anything "American" related. The Americana trend includes clothing items that not only involve the American Flag, but also clothing items that include stars and stripes and are red, white or blue. It can be more subtle with a star printed skirt or more on-point with American flag printed shorts or tees. This trend is not only for America's birthday, but is a summer trend that is casual and effortless.
