Fall is one of my favorite times of year and what a better way to spend it than in New York City. Below is a recap of last weekend and outfit details!
The main reason I was in NYC was for the Bite Beauty Lip Lab. My mom and I had an appointment to make our very own Bite Beauty lipstick. It was such a cool experience, and I recommend it to any makeup lover or anyone looking for a custom lip color. I of course chose a nude shade, but got to try and leave with a neon purple one!
It wouldn’t be a trip to NYC if I didn’t eat… a lot! I ate so good this trip, but nothing was better than visiting Laduree for the first time. The brunch was amazing and the macarons were so magical. I need to go back asap! I am still dreaming of the rose croissant I enjoyed.
My family and I spent our time mainly in the Soho area, which is definitely the spot to be. We used to always visit Times Square, but after a while, I just couldn’t stand the crazy crowds. The streets were mainly residential with plenty of shopping and cafes.
Now to the favorite part… my outfit!
I have such an obsession with these hats! I call them train conductor hats, but they are more formally known as baker boy hats. The one I am wearing is from Nordstrom Rack and was such a steal for only $12.95! I paired it will a plain cotton long sleeve, high-waisted Topshop boyfriend jeans, white Adidas, a tan cardigan over the shoulder, and my Rebecca Minkoff crossbody. Outfit links are below!

I cannot wait to plan my next weekend getaway and share it with you!
It is been a hot minute since I have filmed a video. Getting settled into school has been hard, but I am finally back and will be filming as regularly as possible!
Since fall is officially here, meaning the weather is matching the season, we can finally wear our fave fall makeup looks.
This everyday makeup tutorial is the perfect and simple look to sport for class, a meeting, errands, lunch, dinner, or even a nice event or formal. Maybe even homecoming?!
Below are some of my fave shades that you can use to recreate this look or other fall makeup looks.
The palette I used in this tutorial is the Anastasia of Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. (Sold at Sephora and Ulta)
I recently went to Montreal for two days and had an amazing time! Packing seemed to be easy; bring some shorts, leggings, dress, converse etc. But when it comes to my makeup, narrowing down the items I bring can be tricky. However, figuring out your daily essentials makes picking items extremely easy. Here is exactly what I packed!
The key to packing makeup and other beauty essentials is finding the right bag to pack the items in. Target carries the Sonia Kashuk collection that has a variety of styles, sizes, patterns, and compartments. I typically only bring one primer and foundation, along with a basic tinted moisturizer. I also carry my favorite concealer to highlight and spot conceal, as well as pack two setting powders. The Benefit Hoola Bronzer is my new must have product. It warms up the skin and perfectly contours the cheek bones. I brought two blushes in different tones to spice up any look. I kept the eyes very minimal with one palette that also contains cheeks and a highlight. The hardest part is limiting the lip colors. Unless I plan on doing a specific look, I will bring mainly nude toned liquid lips and glosses, two max. Below are the links to the products I used.
Primer: Makeup Forever Step One Smoothing Primer
Foundation: Too Faced Born This Way
Concealer: Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer
Powder: Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder; Makeup Forever HD Powder
Bronzer: Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Blush: Tarte 12-Hour Blush; Nars Blush in Dolce Vita
Highlight: MAC Soft and Gentle; Becca Champagne Pop
Eyeshadow: Tarte Swamp Queen Palette
Mascara: MAC False Lashes Mascara; L’Oreal Telescopic
Lips: Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint
