Autumn Look Book 2017

LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO WEAR BORING CLOTHES.

Hello everyone! It’s finally the time I show you all my favorite autumn outfits. Enjoy!

1. Everyday Errands

This outfit is super casual, and you can wear it pretty much everywhere. The statement piece is obviously this beautiful army green jacket by Sweet Wanderer, which you can adjust to be more cinched in at the waist or a bit more oversized. I kept the rest of the outfit pretty simple: a black tank top, black high waisted jeans, and my trusty black-&-white converse. For accessories, I wore a silver ear cuff.

 

2. Cool & Casual

This outfit is pretty simple just like the last outfit, but it’s more for those chillier days when you have things to do but still want to be cozy. Again, the statement piece is the  Guess Floral Collection 1984-1994 edition, this epic and beautiful bomber jacket. Fun fact: it was actually my Mom’s. For the outfit, I wore a simple gray long sleeve top with an open back for a little extra personality, some medium wash blue jeans which I cropped at the ankles, and some black ankle booties.  It’s one of my favorites as it is both comfortable and cozy. For accessories, I wore a Kenneth&Cole watch and an ear cuff.

3. A Night Out

So I was given this dress by a lovely friend and I knew that if I could find an excuse to wear a cute dress, I would be wearing this. This burnt orange lacy number is feminine and romantic, but also, does it not scream fall? I paired this with black tights and my Bella Marie Booties. You could pair these with a pair of black booties as well and it would look just as great. For accessories, I wore a gold bracelet, some gold droplet earrings and my gold ear cuffs.

4. Date Night 

I’ll be honest, I never go on date nights this fancy. Correction: I never go on date nights (unless it’s a daddy/daughter or brother/sister date). However, I do go to a few semi-formal events throughout the year. I actually have a wedding to go to in November, so I will be more than likely wearing this dress. This dress was also given to me by my lovely friend and it is a sleek black dress with some rather nice detailing at the waist and bustier. I paired this with my 8-inch Mix No. 6 heels you all know I love and this black and white scarf, which definitely dresses it down, but will still look nice and semi-formal (definitely not a formal number). I wore my hair in a french twist for a more elegant look. For accessories, I wore my diamond drop earrings and my diamond necklace.

. . .

Alright guys, that is it for my Autumn Look Book! I hope you all enjoyed it. Please leave me a comment down below letting my know your favorite fall clothing items, I’d love to know!

Every Day Autumn Makeup Look

“I’M SO GLAD WE LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE THERE ARE OCTOBERS.”

– ANNE OF GREEN GABLES

Hello everyone! Today I am bringing you my everyday autumnal makeup routine. This is something perfect for school or work, and you can take it from day to evening just by changing your lipstick.

The first thing I’m going to start off with is the face. I am using my custom blend foundation, my custom blend concealer, and my Motives Long-Wear Liquid Concealer to even out my skin and spot treat any of my blemishes. I then went in with my Pur Cosmetics Cameo 2-in-1 Contour Stick to contour my cheeks, my forehead, and my nose. For cream highlight, I am using none other than the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal to give me a lit-from-within glow.

For powder, I used the Motives Luminous Loose Powder in Light to slightly bake my chin, nose, and under eye area to lock that into place. I then went in with the shade medium and set the rest of my face with a big fluffy brush. I then did my brows with the Motives Essential Brows Kit, which I really love as it has the perfect shades for my brows.

For the eyes, I primed with my Motives Eye Base and blended that out. I am using the Lorac Pro Palette, one of my go-to palettes for fall. I’m going to start off by fluffing white and cream all over the eyes from lid to brow bone. For the transition, I blended taupe into my crease, focusing on diffusing the color throughout the crease. I then took sable and focused this more on the outter half of the crease and a bit on the lid. I then mixed espresso and black and pressed this against the lash line. When there was barely anything left on the brush, I blended until there were no harsh lines.

I took nude on my finger and tapped this on the inner half of the lid to open up the eyes. For eyeliner, I took the Motives Kohl Liner in coffee and applied that to the waterline. I took espresso and black again to press it against the lower lash line, very close to the lashes and blended it out with sable. I took a clean fluffy brush to blend the edges so they looked clean and streamline before highlighting my brow bone with nude and applying my Motives Fiber Lush Mascara.

To finish off the face, I took the Motives Pressed Bronzer in Miami Glow and warmed up my cheek and forehead area. As for blush, I used the BareMinerals shade in Morning and used the Motives Shimmer Powder in Starshine to highlight the cheekbones, tip of the nose, and above the arch of the brow. For lips, I used my BareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipstick in Bo$$ to finish it off.

That’s it for this tutorial guys! I hope you guys enjoyed it and found it easy to do and easy to wear. Next week, a Fashion Look Book will be coming your way! I’m super excited for it. I love you all!

Welcome To October // Reasons I Love Autumn

AUTUMN SHOWS US HOW BEAUTIFUL IT IS TO LET THINGS GO.

Hello everyone! I hope your day is lovely and I hope you’ve had a wonderful September! September was a very long month for me, and I am really happy to be in October. The last three months of the year are my absolute favorite; wow, we’re only three months away from 2018! How crazy is that?!

. 1 .

Autumn, for me, is more than just a new season, but it gives me this feeling of comfort and peace that I honestly can’t really describe. When I think about autumn, I think of comfort. I think of falling in love. I think of walking in perfect peace. I think of my future in a positive light, not in a stressful way. Autumn just brings me this feeling of happiness and excitement.

. 2 .

Secondly, autumn is a very productive and enjoyable time for me. I’m fresh and energized for both school and anything in regards to work. Autumn may be one of my busiest seasons (let’s be honest, I’m busy 24/7, 365), but I feel like I get a lot accomplished in autumn.

. 3 .

Hot Chocolate. You all know that I love my coffee, but I always save the salted caramel hot chocolates for autumn time. A hot Cinnamon Dulce Lattes from Starbucks, oh my goodness, it’s like joy in a cup. I love hot chocolate for the last three months of the year, it’s a tradition.

. 4 .

Autumn fashion is my favorite kind of fashion. I love the coziness of autumnal fashion, such as chunky knit sweaters, knee high boots, and oversized jackets. I have a particular bomber jacket my mom wore when she was a teenager from Guess and it is so cool and looks super vintage. I also love how you can go very cozy and casual or sultry and sexy with your autumnal looks.

. 5 .

Autumn makeup is also a major favorite. I love wearing deep berry lips with a matte eye and a cat eye flick. There are so many different kinds of looks that fit autumn so well, and I’ve got my own personal favorite looks going up soon! I get so excited for autumnal makeup looks. Who doesn’t?

. 6 .

Thanksgiving. I’m the oddball who really doesn’t care for Halloween, but I LOVE Thanksgiving. I love getting to hang out with my friends and family. My family usually invites people who don’t have a place to go for Thanksgiving to ours to celebrate, and we always have the best time. My dad and my grandma will cook up an epic feast, my mom will make my Ohma’s gravy, and I’ll help out with whatever needs to be done. It’s one of my favorite holidays to spend with my family. Thanksgiving is always really relaxed and enjoyable. I have so many great memories of Thanksgiving, and I wouldn’t trade them for anything.

. 7 .

Candles. It is finally cold enough to live without the fan going on constantly, so I can finally light candles. They add so much ambience and serenity to my room, plus the scent is incredible and makes me feel extra cozy and happy.

. 8 .

The colors of Autumn are so rich and vibrant that I get so happy. Personally, my favorite colors are in the tones of autumn, the burnt oranges, the reds, the deep purples, etc. Also, nature. I love the outdoors in autumn. It’s somehow vulnerable and romantic, but also beautiful and comforting. It literally takes my breath away, and I wonder what God was thinking of when He created this beautiful season.

. 9 .

And lastly, autumn is  one of my favorite seasons as it is a time where I am constantly rehearsing for ballets, recitals, and performances. This year especially, I will be busy choreographing pieces for my last recital, I will be rehearsing and training for the Youth America Grand Prix, I will be training for my Advanced II examination for a second time, I will be rehearsing for my last studio performance with RDA,  all the while enjoying the process of improving my technique and bettering my performance. Who knows where I’ll be next year.

That concludes this blogpost! I hope you enjoyed this blogpost. Since I’m nosy, comment favorite things about Autumn in the comment section so I can see! I love you all, and Happy October!

LIFE ON POINTE Episode 5 | Season Two

Hello Everyone! This week, I was supposed to have a private coaching session with Mr. Pegler, but he had an emergency. We’d already driven down to LA for the coaching when he’d called, so one of my teachers worked it out for me to work with a different teacher. Thank you to the lovely teacher who coached me for the variation I’m learning! Thanks for watching guys!

September Favorites

I FIND BEAUTY IN THINGS THAT ARE ODD AND IMPERFECT- THEY ARE MUCH MORE INTERESTING.

-MARC JACOBS

Hello everyone! As happy as I am that October is on the way, I am hanging on tight and screaming, “How is this year going by so fast?!” It’s insane how there is only three more months in 2017. Anyways, I’m going to kick off my favorites by starting off with the weather. Finally, we’ve gotten out of the 100’s and 90’s and we’re in the 80’s and 70’s! Okay, I know this is literally the lamest favorite ever, but still, thank God the unbearable heat is over.

IMG_1904

The next favorite I have are three of the Motives Pressed Shadows. One of them is one I’ve mentioned before, but I wanted to mention it again. The first is Bedroom Eyes, which is a subtle purple taupe with gold reflects and is perfect for a natural eye makeup look or a smokey intense look. The next two shades are no longer available, but I will link a similar one to their name. One is Catwalk (similar one: Tripped Out) which is a deep olive green with gold reflect and perfect for autumnal looks and really makes brown eyes pop. The last one is Rapture (similar one: Lit) which is a bright copper with orange tons, again, perfect for autumnal looks and makes any eye color stand out.

IMG_1912

I was giving someone a make over at the beginning of the month and gave her a choice of palettes I could use on her. She chose the Motives I Do Palette.  Once I was finished with the look on her I was obsessed and wondered why I hadn’t picked up this palette recently. I’ve been using it on a regular basis now and am back in love with it. It contains 3 matte eyeshadows, 2 shimmer shadows, a highlight, a bronzer/contour shade, a blush, and a mini kohl liner. It is definitely worth every penny that was spent on it.

IMG_1918

I am now going to mention these brushes from Mikasa Beauty. I never mention brushes, but I am in absolute love with these brushes. They are excellent quality and the brush hairs are so soft. I have the F100 which is their powder brush, the F300 which is their foundation brush, the F120 which is their tapered contour brush (I use it to highlight the face), the E320 which is their tapered blending brush, and the E230, which is their Eye Shader Brush.

I also have their lemon drop, which is their version of a beauty sponge and I really life it as well! It’s not too firm or hard, and when you dampen it, it is so soft and bouncy. My Mom bought their full set and loves them and I love all of those as well. I bought the Mikasa 5 Piece Complexion Brush Set  which is $65 with a value of $77. (Use code SUNGEUNROSE25 to get 25% off your entire order!)

Also from Mikasa Beauty is their CND Vinylux Weekly Polish in #110 Dark Lava. It is the most perfect autumnal shade for the nails and is such a deep and rich berry shade. I saw it when I was looking through their nail polishes and I knew that I had to get this one. I love it so much and it goes with everything.

 

Lastly for my favorites are these ear cuffs that I actually made for myself. I made two ear cuffs in gold and I also took apart a really heavy ear cuff I never wore and made a small one to wear, and I love them! I’ve been wearing these ear cuffs every single day since I made them in the beginning of the month. They add a little bit of edge without being too editorial. They’re so perfect and I just love them.

Alrighty guys, that’s it for this month’s favorites! I hope you all had the best September ever and I can’t wait for October!!! I love you all!
