Beauty Haul

beautyhaul

Last month I got a few new beauty products from Sephora and H&M but I never got a chance to share here on the blog. I decided to finally get around doing this…

katvondeyecontour

Kat Von D recently launched their line here in Sweden at Sephora so I decided to get the Kat Von D Eye Contour Palette The eyeshadows are matte and they come in four quads of neutral, cool and warm shades.

I’ve been practicing quite a lot using tutorials on YouTube and I’m really proud of this look I created.

I think it turned out pretty good…I just need to keep at it…

I also got the Sephora Lip Cream in Always Red and the Isadora Perfect Lip Liner in Prime Red.

This combo has been my go to favorite and I have been wearing it a lot whenever I want a red lip.

I’ve also been trying to find the “perfect” mascara for my short almost non-existent lashes. So I got a sample size of the Two faced better than sex mascara and the Maybelline Sensational Mascara

I ran out of my regular makeup remover so I decided to pick up the Caudalie Micellar Water which I have been loving a lot!!! It does a good job of removing makeup, acting like a first cleanse and it’s not drying.

I needed a lighter brighter nail polish for the spring so I got this pretty ligh pink Essie Nail color in Mademoiselle

handsanitizer

While I was waiting to check out I saw this gel hand sanitizer and decided to pick it up so I can have it handy in my purse whenever I feel the need to sanitize my hands.

I love the real techniques bold metals collections brushes they are so pretty, so I decided to add the arched powder brush to my collection and now I have two brushes from this collection.

First things, first, when looking for the perfect dress for your special day, you need to find some inspiration. You can find plenty of inspiration browsing online, looking through magazines or even watching red carpets events and celebrity style on TV.

Chiffon Shoulder Strap Prom Dress

I love creating inspiration boards on pinterest, it gives me a good idea of what kind of colors, textures and styles I gravitate to and it makes it so much easier when I’m actually shopping because I now know exactly what I’m looking for.

There are so many beautiful gorgeous dresses on SherryLondon’s website. A great way to narrow down your favorites is to pin the ones you love to your pinterest board and you can even share the board with your family and friends. This can make the shopping process even easier.

Next, when choosing your perfect dress you want to pay attention to things like body shape, height, accessories and your budget. All these factors are important into making sure you’re choosing the PERFECT dress for you.

OOTD – Cold Shoulder

grayblackred_6

Last year I went through my closet and got rid of quite a lot of items. Items that for one reason or the other I don’t really wear anymore. It’s been such a breath of fresh air having fewer items that I really, really love and that I actually wear on a regular basis.

When I currently look at my closet, with just a simple glance, I can see everything I own and it makes planning out my outfit hassle free. One reason I did a closet clear out was to make things easier but another was to rebuild my wardrobe.

One thing I noticed when I was going through my closet is I seem to have quite a few items in the color gray. This was strange because it’s not a color that I’d really mention as a favorite of mine. But I guess if I don’t pick up something black, I end up with gray, especially in the fall/winter season.

Since spring is officially here and the sun is out, I decided to add a pop of red to make this outfit more colorful and I love the outcome.

iHerb Haul March

kinkycurlyknottoday_marchblog

I recently got some stuff from iHerb, I usually order stuff from there every month or every other month depending on how much of my hair care products I got left.

kccc_march_iherb_haul

As always I got Kinky Curly Knot Today conditioner, this time I ordered two bottles and I hope they’ll last me much longer than they usually do. I also got an 80z jar of the KCCC gel.

I get a lot of questions asking if I still do the MHM, yes I do, but I rarely wear my hair in a wash and go anymore. I do the full regimen once a week, on a weekend. The gel lasts me way longer than it used to, which is a plus :)

My go to hairstyle has been a low bun parted down in the middle and when I go to bed at night I just twist my hair to avoid shrinkage. The next morning I untwist my hair brush it down and tie it in a low bun.

As far as skincare goes, this time I picked up only two products, both from Jason. The first one is the Jason Natural, Brightening Apricot Scrubble Facial Wash and Scrub. This is a deep cleansing exfoliating scrub that contains Apricot oil. The Apricot Oil helps to brighten the skin’s complexion and walnut powder exfoliates the skin, unclogs pores and removes dead skin cells.

And I also got the Jason Natural, C effects, Pure Natural Creme its a moisturizer with anti-aging properties. It helps to tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The ingredients include Ester C, Vitamin E, Green Tea and Thioctic Acid.
