Celebrity Inspired Make Up: Kim K!

Her face is iconic, and her skin is porcelain… Kim Kardashian’s make up is always on point! A friend (thanks Rachel!) sent in this pic of her, along with the fab idea of doing this make up look! Here it is, and product list below! Of everything listed, my favorites that I recommend are the 2 lip colors (1 lipstick and 1 gloss), the liquid foundation, and the dusting makeup brush!!!! (I got it on a QVC deal, but found a link where you can buy the brush alone.) Enjoy, and go have fun trying a new look!

Currently Loving…

Hello Glamazons! It is SPRING, and there are SO MANY things I’m LOVING right now!!! Check these beauties out; you might find something you love too!

**FASHION!**

I am having a blast dressing this bump! Don’t get me wrong, I have to work at keeping myself healthy and fit, but that’s part of the joy too! Eating right, exercising the right amount, and enjoying every second of it! It’s an indescribable blessing to go through this experience. As far as the fashion goes: Sporty, casual, dressy glam…I love it ALL!!!

Draw inspiration from these pics for how to throw your own ensemble together! A fierce jacket with some Nike hi tops for a sporty chic day? I think YES! Leave your blouse open with a plain tank and and wear a cute hat + statement jewelry…unexpected and so fun!

All of these outfit details can be found on my daily Instagram! Go to @sara_hodge, and find out where you can get these threads! For example, my favorite black moto jacket and the blush pink blouse are both Forever 21! Can you believe it? So inexpensive, but they look high end! Jewelry, shoes, accessories, leggings and more!

**BEAUTY!**

Hello, Gorgeous! These are some fab finds right now, that you can ROCK ROCK ROCK! I’m loving staying on my nail game! It’s been my fun treat during pregnancy. Try a FIERCE white and gold combo this spring!!! I did a party nail + a chevron nail to dress this up…and I love how fun it is!

If you love that glammed up light pink nail polish, you can get it. It’s “Mod About You” by OPI!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this Sonia Kashuk Fan Brush (link here)!!! It’s the best $8.00 make up brush around, and a steal at that price! It’s fine fibered, and lightweight. Since it’s not thick and heavy, it distributes the perfectly faint amount of highlighter and shimmer to the highest part of my cheekbones. I LOVE IT!

If you follow my daily Instagram, you’ve already seen this FABULOUS highlighting chunky brow pencil by Anastasia of Beverly Hills (link here). IT’S FANTASTIC!! The matte end PERFECTLY highlights my brow bone, and the shimmer side I actually use as a little accent on my inner lid and inner waterline.

Diva Lipstick by Mac (link here)! Utilizing bright lipstick to channel my spring vibes isn’t the only reason for this amazing shade of rouge…it makes my teeth look whiter!!! Being pregnant is the best thing ever! BUT there are certain beauty products I can’t use during this time, for health purposes of course. I can’t whiten my teeth! I love having a bright smile, but right now, I can’t use the Crest White Strips that I love. Since wearing a bright lip makes your teeth look whiter, I’m taking advantage of it! This pic has NO EDITING ON MY TEETH! NO FILTER! This is truly how they look with this lipstick! If you go heavier handed with this lipstick, it can go do a really beautiful, deep oxblood color, but I like to wear it a little brighter. If you want another great RED by MAC, I love Russian Red (link here).

**ACCESSORIES!**

Ahhhhhh! That’s my excitement for these GORGEOUS, incredible purses! Ju-Ju-Be has been on the scene for a while, but this company just took their product from diaper bag functionality to glamorous FABULOSITY! Yes, you heard me right: diaper bags! Hey, I’m becoming a mom, I need solutions for all of the “fun” things I need to tote around. The Legacy Line has the most functional, loaded-with-pockets, machine washable, products…and the list of benefits and features goes on and on! I’m not exaggerating! Can we all just swoon over the fabulous gold hardware on the purses? I’m OBSESSED! My favorite print is the black and white stripe called “First Lady” (hello?! so chic!!!)… and I love the smaller bags to carry inside the bigger one. Shop the line HERE (link). Finally, a company that has married function with fashion..thank you Ju-Ju-Be! A great solution for moms like me! I love not having to sacrifice style for the daily routine. We need more like this in the future! Keep it up!

Yes, I love the bags so much that you get 2 pics! If you follow me on Instagram @sara_hodge, you might have seen my blazer post! I picked the HOT PINK one (link here)! Thanks for all your help Glamazons!

My thoughtful, and awesome-gift-giving in-laws got me these PERFECT Kendra Scott Skylar Earrings in neon pink (link here) for my bday! I’ve been waiting ’til now to post them, and I love them! They match with so many things in my closet, and they are too fun!

Also! If you’re a pen-to-paper kind of girl (like me), and you love keeping an organized schedule and life, this is FOR YOU! I can’t take credit for finding the Erin Condren Life Planner (link here) – one of my best gal pals, Rachel, introduced me to this super hero of all planners a couple years ago. I’m hooked! It’s worth EVERY PENNY! Tons of space, sections, and lots of fun features. Check them out online. They are coming back in stock next month; don’t miss out! I got mine this year in Tiffany Blue!

The accessories I wore in my glam outfit above! The heels are Guess, and the jewelry, of course, is Kendra Scott! The gorgeous Ivy Bracelet in gold was also a birthday treat…beautiful! Bracelet link here, and earrings here.

Another double product picture for you, because this wrap bracelet is TOO AMAZING for anything less! This is my second custom wrap bracelet by Mrs. Hipp Designs. You can follow and order actually on her Facebook or Instagram. She makes extremely high quality wraps, and pictured here is NATURAL LEATHER! The bead work is gorgeous, and I can wear at different lengths. So many different colors and options; you’ve got to check it out. Believe it or not, even though this style bracelet can retail upwards of $240.00… This designer sells them for $40.00+. Talk about a great GIFT to give yourself or a friend! Support local businesses; I love this one!

I hope you all have an incredible weekend filled with love, laughter and family! Remember, you smile is always your best accessory!

A Black Tie Affair

20131218-200541.jpg
I have been VERY EXCITED to share this GORGEOUS Jovani couture gown with you!!! Added bonus: It’s my hubby’s debut on the blog! Well, his photo that is. We had an amazing time with my family, for a black tie evening. I love this floor-length sparkler, styled with a formal updo, and diamond jewels. {I did my own hair and make up.} This is yet another ensemble from our glamorous, fun Thanksgiving vacation! I love David’s modern take on black tie formal, going with a dark grey, charcoal and black combo. I love him so much!!!

Always remember, fashionistas, your BEST accessory is a true and genuine smile!!!

Lancôme Mascara & Gift!

I love when Lancôme does a gift with purchase! I went to get a new tube of one of my fave mascaras (hynôse star), and to my pleasant surprise…. gifts with purchase!! Several things not pictured, one if which was a huge, fab charcoal makeup bag! I love this eye shadow set. A smokey purple is one of my top two eye shadow looks…so this is quite the treat! And who doesn’t love the world’s best (in my opinion) eye make up remover? Score!

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick!

It’s definitely a berry lipstick kind of day! I love that it matches the piping on my dance leotard, & it’s such a happy color!

20130918-074727.jpgDETAILS: LIPSTICK: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Berry Couture// MASCARA: MAC Zoom Lash in black & Covergirl Lashblast Volume in very black waterproof // Not wearing any bottom eye liner & mascara for a fresh, wide-awake look // HAIR: Natural texture, no blowout.

Now about this LIPSTICK!!! I say this with total seriousness: The Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick & Lipgloss are the absolute BEST drug store lipstick & gloss I’ve ever bought! 100%!!!!! The best! I only bought the matching berry colors to try it out, but I will certainly get more in the future.

20130918-082930.jpgThis is just as amazing as high end designer lipsticks. I almost never like drug store lipstick as much as the “expensive stuff.” In fact, this lipstick makes me NOT like any of my other drug store lipsticks anymore, because it’s SO GOOD! Soft, truly lustrous almost like a gloss, brilliant color, goes on smooth & lasts a long time. The gloss is soft, not sticky, & very shiny. I love it!!!!!! Definitely get some for yourself in the color of your choice.

What I Wore: EMERALD!!!

Emerald is the color of the year, and I am LOVING it!!! After a week of photo shoots, dress rehearsals and 4 amazing shows, this is what I wore on stage for our finale.

20130702-071420.jpgThis photo was taken late at night after the event, but I still had to share it with you! Details: DRESS: Arden B // HEELS: Enzo Angiolini (looks identical to the Jimmy Choo’s, for a much different price tag).

Close up of my eye make up, before the show:

20130702-072348.jpgSmokey eyes are a must on the dance stage! What fun events or fashion moments have you experienced lately? Would love to hear!!!

Recent Finds I Love!

20130502-074157.jpg I needed some new lip color and gloss, but didn’t want to spend the $14-$30++ at the mall (even though that’s where my favorite brands are). So I tried these, which were $5.99/each at Target! Revlon Lip Butter in Stawberry Shortcake, and L’Loreal Colour Riche lip gloss in Nude Touch. I love both!!!!! The butter goes on like a super silky lip balm, and has vibrant color too. The gloss is FABULOUS!!!! Not sticky at all, it’s light-weight and goes on smooth. It looks *almost* as lustrous as my Christian Dior Addict Lip Gloss. (For literally 1/6 of the price, almost as lustrous is more than enough for me!!!) I like both products a lot, but if I had to recommend only one for you to try first I’d start with the gloss. Add it to whatever you’re already wearing, OR wear it alone. Looks great either way! An instant look-lift.

Also found these rad, ultra delicate silver hoops at Francesca’s! They are the perfect add on to my Nike-errand-running-outfit.

20130502-081435.jpgSuch a steal at $9.00, compared to the nearly identical ones I saw at Nordy’s for $45.00. Every girl needs a basic hoop in her jewelry armoir! These are so lightweight and dainty, they just peek through my hair. Love them!!!! Don’t have a Francesca’s near you? Shop online HERE. They have the best on-trend accessories at good prices.
