Super Simple 2 Minute Eye Makeup Look

Hey friends! A bunch of you asked for a tutorial on my favorite eye shadow combo that I mentioned in my August favorites video, so I thought I would film a quick little mini-tutorial (I call them mini-toots in my head…is that weird?). I hope you enjoy! This is seriously the easiest 2-minute eye makeup look ever, and it’s so simple it’s almost ridiculous to film but as always, ask and ye shall receive!

Love ya!

Makeup Used

First Impression: Marc Jacobs Genius Gel Foundation

If you haven’t seen a First Impressions video before, it’s a video in which I share with you my initial opinion of a product (usually a foundation, for some reason) and check in with you during the course of the day, letting you see how it wears and what my thoughts are as it wears. Marc Jacobs launched his eponymous makeup line exclusively in Sephora stores last month, and I’ll be honest: I wasn’t that enthused. “Just another fashion designer trying to break into beauty,” I thought. I decided to get to know his line by trying one product. I chose the Genius Gel foundation and I won’t spoil it here – you’ll need to watch the video above to find out what I think about it.

Massive Haul Video (Beauty/Office)

Over the past several days/weeks, I’ve been collecting some things for two separate reasons. One being that I have a new planner (which at the time of filming was on the way, but is now HERE and I LOVE IT). The second being that I am currently away on a fabulous cruise vacation. I have been on a bit of an organizing kick lately, so I picked up a couple of organizational items in addition to fun planner-decorating supplies. And for my cruise vacay, I definitely needed a new sunscreen (since they expire quite quickly) and some other beachy essentials. I thought I would film a quick haul for you! Warning: it’s impressive.

Splurge or Steal: Christian Louboutin

SoS-christian-louboutin-dupe

When it comes to Christian Louboutin shoes, everyone always thinks about the red sole. But honestly, after one wear, that pretty red sole starts looking pretty darn messy. Now, I’m all about luxury and high-end items (I didn’t grow up hearing my dad say I’ve “got champagne tastes on a beer budget” all my life for nothing!). But there is expensive, and then there isĀ stupid expensive. Christian Louboutin is one of them. Want to buy that pair of shoes right there? That’ll set you back a couple thou. As in thousands. Of US dollars.

Or you could just buy these for under $170 bucks and call it a day.
