Pops of Color

I guess it's fair to say that I used to hide behind my hair, so it took me a while to feel comfortable without that 'veil' when I started wearing it curly last fall. Even when I cut my hair short years ago, I still had a good amount of fluffy volume and full bangs. I was really uncomfortable with these tight, spirally curls at first, and I would often compensate by wearing more makeup than usual.

With time, my natural curls grew on me, and I reverted back to wearing minimal makeup. However, while I was experimenting with different makeup choices, I found a few items that I really love. The first of which is this purple lipstick. It adds that perfect pop of color and spunk to your outfit without being over-the-top (just like this teal nail polish).

I also started using Natalia's favorite mascara. Now I realize why she likes it so much...

Have a great day!

Great Expectations

Sunglasses: Prada, Lipstick: M·A·C "D for Danger"

Sometimes Zara really surprises me with the quality of their products. I recently ordered two skirts, a pair of pants and this dress during their end-of-season sale. Everything exceeded my expectations! I'm always looking for pieces that can be worn to multiple occasions, and this dress is perfect in so many ways. The quality is fantastic and, best of all, it was only $29.99!

Here are some great spring items that I have my eye on at Zara - Dress, Skirt, Pants

Have a great week!

Anastasia Beverly Hills and Firmoo

First, I want to wish you all a happy new year. Second, thank god for a new post, right? Haha! Life has been very busy. I apologize for the lack of blog posts, but what better way to start the new year than by reviewing a new brand that I tried out over the break? Anastasia Beverly Hills is a popular brand, and I can see why - the texture and colors are amazing! The removal process is also easy, which is a huge plus. I've found that liquid lipsticks often take the jaws of life to remove, but I didn't have a problem with this brand. I chose these brown and burgundy hues because I'm a creature of the night, and every girl needs them in their makeup stash. I paired these lips with an ombre pair of Firmoo glasses. I blogged about this company previously (here), and they had such great deals that I decided to try them again. Have a great weekend.
