FOTD + Swatches

Today was so hot, I decided to do a tropical inspired look! I have this e.l.f. eyeshadow palette that is huge and has so many cool colors, so it's about time I started using them more! The only color that is not from tat palette is the yellow, it's an eyeshadow from Illamasqua! I put blue mascara on my bottom lashes to enhance the blue eyeshadow under it!

I also picked up a few new makeup products today, I'll be doing more in depth reviews of them later, but I do have some swatches for you!

First is this Maybelline Color Whisper lip "balm" it's not really a lip stick or a gloss....

Below I swatched on the left, a few layers of it, and the right just one! I think it's such a pretty color it's called, Pink Possibilities

Then I got an eyebrow pencil from Rimmel in the color 004 Black Brown it's good because it's not a reddish brown!!

Starting to Feel Like Summer

It's really been starting to feel like summer around here. The area I live there is really only two seasons, Winter and Summer, so it's already pretty warm here! I recently ordered this Hand embroidered Mexican dress on Etsy HERE and have been patiently awaiting it's arrival!!! It finally came yesterday and I'm so excited to wear it!

I used to have one when I was young, when my Grandad lived in Mexico, and sent me one and they always reminded me of summer. They are so pretty and the shop on Etsy that I ordered it from is so neat because they make them by hand, and are sent from Mexico too!

Recent Buys

Today I went to my favorite art supply store, in Berkeley!!! It is so amazing and has so many great things, I could spend A LOT of time in there! Some of my paint brushes have started to wear down, and look a little abused....Sometimes I'm bad at taking care of my brushes!!! So I bout two new ones, one is a standard small brush, but then I got an extra tiny one which I'm sooooo excited to use!!!

I also bought some more of my favorite water color paper. It is so amazing, by far the best I've ever used!!!

I also bought a maybelline blush, I've really been wanting to try one of these, I'm sort of bored with my blushes and the powdery consistency, so I want to try more cream blushes and this one is cheap and fun to try before I invest in more expensive ones! I got the color Hot Tamale! I think it's a really pretty color for spring and summer.

Lazy Oaf Bustier

Today I finally got a chance to wear this adorable new top!!!! It's by the brand Lazy Oaf, and my sister got it for me for my birthday!

It's really cute and comfortable, and I'll definitely be wearing it a lot this summer! Today I wore it with a bright pink, pleated skirt. I think in the summer it will be cute with other high waisted things too!!
