Maxi-“mum” Joy!

Image

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this maxi I wore for my first baby shower! The navy blue is classic, and easy to style with a messy bun and statement earrings. So excited to be a “mum,” and super happy to celebrate in style! If you wear giant earrings like these, go sans necklace, so you don’t overdo it (wait, did I just say that accessories can be “overdone?!” Never thought I’d say that…but yes, it’s possible!) I feel so thankful to the women who surrounded me with so much LOVE, and threw me the most beautifully hosted/decorated/catered baby shower ever. It was GORGEOUS! So much fun spending time with people I love.

Dress: Modern Vintage Boutique (current); Earrings: Arden B. (old) – alternate options on Bauble Bar here. Wearing Ardell #120 demi lashes, and Bobbi Brown Illuminating Finish Powder Compact Foundation in Natural (4).

Natural Summer Make Up!!!

Any product with a “*” next to it means sometimes I skip this one.

First- foundation. Keep it light weight! Here are 2 options. The Bobbi Brown I wear on the regular- it has SPF and looks like a second skin. The glo minerals I wear if I know I’ll be taking any photos because it never flashes white in pictures! Love it.

I’m obsessed with this angled brush by Sonia Kashuk; it’s from Target!!! I didn’t post a pic of my highlighter because I’m using one that I’m not crazy about. When I find one I LOVE I’ll let you know! Any suggestions???

Eyes are my favorite part!!! I’m crazy about my brows and lashes. If you know me, you know that mascara is my #1 favorite make up product! I firmly believe that, just like denim jeans, every woman has a different brand of mascara that is best for her. I’ve used every mascara under the sun (seriously I think I have), and these are my summer favorites of all time. I use the liner to do a very discreet, but precise line. The paint pot is used under the liner to make it stay all day. Remember this is all-natural, so no eyeshadow.
