Summer Beauty: Ocean of Secrets

Hey Everyone!

We decided to play around with makeup a little bit! We wanted to create a fun Summer makeup look that was inspired by the blue ocean! 

We call this look 'Ocean of Secrets'!

**Note: You can use any variation of products to recreate this look, it does not have to be the exact same products we used.

How We Got the Look

Step 1: Prime lids - MAC Paintpot 'Painterly'
Step 2: Highlight the brow bone and inner corners with a matte nude (LORAC 'Undercover')
Step 3: Fill in just above the crease with taupe brown (MAC 'Concrete')
Step 4: Fill in crease with a shimmery bronze (LORAC 'Uncensored')
Step 5: Contour outer corners with a shimmery deep brown (LORAC 'Untamed')
Step 6: Highlight the inner 1/3 and bottom lashline with a turquoise eyeshadow (MAC 'Aquadisiac')
Step 7: With a diagonal eyeliner brush and swipe the shimmery bronze color (LORAC 'Uncensored') across lower lashline (make sure the turquoise peeks out below it)
Step 8: Tightline upper and lower waterline with a black eyeliner pencil (Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner Pencil 'Perversion')
Step 9: Line upper lashline with black (MAC Fluidline 'Blacktrack')
Step 10: Fill in brows and mascara lashes

**Add false lashes for added drama

List of Products Used

MAC Paintpot in 'Painterly'
LORAC 'Unzipped' Eyeshadow Palette ('Undercover', 'Uncensored', Untamed')
MAC Eyeshadow 'Concrete'
MAC Eyeshadow 'Aquadisiac'
MAC Fluidline 'Blacktrack'

MAC Cremesheen Glass 'Boy Bait'

Thank you so much Michelle for lending me your face for the day =)

The Budget Babe: Lightweight Cardigans

A lightweight cardigan is a staple during the summer months!

Since summer is so hot and muggy, a heavy knitted cardigan can make you feel frumpy and sweaty, although very chic during the fall and winter months, not especially so when it comes to summer. You want a more lightweight cardigan that will still let the breeze flow through but still compliment your outfit.

These three different cardigans here are great for wearing to work or during the day for running all your daily errands!

'Claire' $19.75 - on sale!

This white cardigan is sheer and has short sleeves to keep you cool. The snug bottom hem and v-neck cut will let your top peek through. The mini pockets and buttons down the front make this cardigan all the more cute and special.

Outfit Idea: Pair this cardigan with a high waist pleated skirt and some mary janes for a professional workplace look or with some colorful skinny's and ballet flats for a cool day outfit.

'Carissa' $22.50

This burgundy cardigan is also sheer with wide three quarter sleeves to give you some air. The kimono style of this cardigan has an open front and a cinching on the back for openness and added structure.

Outfit Idea: Wear this cardigan with shorts for a more daytime look or throw a belt around the middle for a more professional pulled together look.

'Macy' $29.00

This beige cropped cardigan has a romantic touch to it with the crocheted shoulders that continue through the back. With wide half sleeves and a waist tie, this cardigan was made especially for those hot summer months.

Outfit Idea: Pair this cardigan with some light washed shorts and flat sandals for a beachy look, or wrap the waist tie around to the back and wear it with a short pleated dress and espadrilles for a flirty daytime look.

Hairstyles: The Ballerina Bun

The ballerina bun is the number one classic hairstyle. Its super easy to do and it looks so effortless but still clean and pulled together. This hairstyle can make any woman look professional and confident!

Here's how its done!

Soft Bristle Brush or Comb
Heat Protector (optional)
1.5" - 2" Curling Iron (optional)
Elastic Band
Bobby Pins

Step 1: (optional for those who have thin or sparse hair)
Spray a heat protector throughout your hair. This will also add some texture. Then lightly curl your hair with your curling iron.

Step 2:
Use your comb or soft bristle brush to work your hair into a high ponytail, however high you want your bun to be. Make sure your hair is pulled up smoothly so there are no bumps.

Step 3:
Tie your hair in a ponytail with an elastic and lightly spray your ponytail with hairspray.

Step 4:
Start back combing your ponytail from the bottom with a comb or soft bristle brush.

Step 5:
Twist your ponytail slowly forming a circle around your elastic band. Tuck the end of the pony tail under and pin with a bobby pin. Use pins to tuck away any stray hairs and to secure your bun so it is snug.

Step 6:
Lightly spray with a finishing hairspray to keep hair in place.

Tada! Your ready for a fun night out on the town with your best girl friends!

**You are free to use any products similar to the ones above to get the same hairstyle. Try out your own techniques and see what works best with your hair type!

Celebrity Stylelust: Blake Lively

We love Blake Lively's style! and of course her on-screen persona on 'Gossip Girl' as Serena van der Woodsen!

Her new movie 'Savages' just hit theaters, so we thought we would share some styleboards we found on Polyvore that reflect Blake Lively's personal style! This young starlet does claim that she doesn't use a celebrity stylist to help her with her outfits, and she even does her own hair and makeup a lot of the time!

Here are some of our favorites from Polyvore!
