5 January Favorites

Hey Y’all!

January has been one of those months that takes forever and yet feels so short. Does anyone else feel this way, or is it just me?  This past week has been somewhat hectic, despite having a few days of canceled classes because of snow. I’m trying to re-focus and get back into my routine of blogging, studying, going to the gym, and all of my other weekly focuses. I wanted to share with y’all a few of my favorite products and clothing items from this month, and I hope you love them as much as I do!

Black Classic Rose Maxi from JessaKae

Y’all… I’m in love with this dress! You have probably seen it so many times on my Instagram (if not, go follow me here). It’s so comfortable and has pockets… what’s not to love? The fabric is so soft and stretchy. I’ve worn this so many times in the past few weeks just for the sake of wearing it because I love it THAT much. It also comes in blush, navy, and ivory! Also, if you want to order this lovely dress from Jessakae, use my code CHLOE10 to get 10% off of your entire order!

Naked Ultimate Basics Palette

This eyeshadow palette has everything needed for so many different matte eye looks. The shades in Naked Ultimate Basics are neutral enough for everything from cool skin tones to olive complexions to darker skin.  It comes with 12 matte shadows that can be worn as light, everyday looms to smokey nighttime looks. It also comes with a double ended brush, one side that is a fluffy blending brush and the other that’s a smaller, denser smudging brush.

Colorful Shoes

I love colorful shoes right now! They add such pop and go with more outfits than you might think. I bought two pairs from Target last week that I’m obsessed with. Bright shoes don’t necessarily need to be worn with bright clothing. If you’re fearful of looking like a child’s finger-painting by overloading on the colors, let your bright shoes be a simple pop of color against neutrals, like in the picture above. 

Too Faced Melted Metal Lipstick in Peony

I’m usually not a fan of bright pink OR sparkly lip colors, but the Too Faced Melted lipsticks are an exception. It applies so smoothly and stays on! This color is so gorgeous when paired with a neutral toned outfit. Love, love, love! 

Aerie City Sweatshirt

I wear leggings and sweatshirts to my 9 am classes a LOT. This sweatshirt from Aerie is perfect for that! It’s long, soft, and super comfy, but still looks cute enough to wear in public : ) Pair this with leggings and cute tennis shoes for the perfect “I woke up like this” outfit for those early a.m classes. 

Alright y’all, that’s a wrap!

Much love,

Chloe♥

My Top 10 Beauty Products

Hey yall! I’m going to be sharing with you my favorite beauty products that I use every single day (almost). I usually try to go for a more natural overall look, but I do have days when I really feel like rocking some winged liner. Let’s get started!

FACE. 

My favorite foundation and primer are the Too Faced  Born This Way Foundation in the shade Porcelain (applied with the Real Techniques expert face brush), and the Hangover Replenishing Face Primer, also by Too Faced. These are both so hydrating and it hardly feels like you’re wearing foundation. I set my foundation with a fluffy brush and the NYX Pressed HD Finishing Powder in Translucent. For Bronzer, I use the Benefit Hoola Bronzer, which I have in their Cheekathon Blush Palette. My favorite blush is the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hour blush in the shade Paaarty. (I love it). These products have such a good color and are nicely pigmented, and blend so nicely.

EYES.  

I’ve started using the Colourpop Take Me Home eyeshadow palette, which I absolutely love because it’s so versatile. The palette only has six shades, but those eyeshadows are all you need for either a natural look or a more smokey, sparkly look. I use the light peachy shade on my lid, then use the slightly darker warm color for my crease. If I’m feeling fancy, I’ll thinly line my eyes with Revlon’s Colorstay Skinny Liquid Liner in the shade Blackout, but I usually just go without eyeliner. I curl my eyelashes and apply a few coats of Sephora’s Full Action Extreme Effect Mascara in the color black. For brows, I’ll use the NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Ash Brown to shape my eyebrows and define them a bit. 

And that’s it! Somedays I wear makeup, other days (like today), I’ll just go without it. It totally doesn’t matter whether you wear super glam makeup every day, super natural makeup every day, go without every day, or mix it up. (like me!). I hope yall enjoyed this and don’t forget to check out my Winter Skincare Favorites!
