Lately I’ve been obsessing over makeup. I’ve always loved makeup. When I was little one of my aunt’s got me a makeup book and I looked through that thing ALL the time. Now I see my sweet little cousins always wanting to try on some lip gloss or put on a little bit of blush…the more they can get their hands on the better- and although I don’t think little girls need to wear makeup- it’s something that is just bred into every little girl that they like to play and get dressed up! 😉
If you haven’t heard of the Urban Decay Naked palette then I have to ask…have you been living under a rock?!?! Haha Okay maybe that’s extreme…but seriously, this palette is so popular it was sold out for a really long time and they’ve just come out with a Naked Palette 2! For the average girl if you’re gonna invest any money into some good eyeshadow’s that aren’t crazy colors like bright blue and green and yellow…this is for you! It is FULL of the perfect mix of beautiful shimmer and matte neutral eyeshadows that ANY girl will look great in. The only problem? The price tag on this beauty is kind of outrageous! At $50 you can be on your way to beautiful natural and fun looking makeup! BUT…if that price is a little too steep for your budget…
Check out the NYX 10 color eyeshadow palette in Champagne and Caviar! You get some similar neutral shades at a fraction of the cost!! Yep all 10 of these beautiful eyeshadows can be your’s for only $10.99!! AH! I love a good bargain! If you’re shopping in Lubbock you can pick up either of these palettes at Ulta or online here and here!
Happy neutral eyeshadows!
Did anyone else catch a glimpse of all the glamorous stars on the red carpet for the Golden Globes?!?! I’m not ususally one to know exactly when the red carpet events are happening and block off the exact time to sit in front of the TV and watch it all- But as I was searching the TV guide and happened upon E’s coverage of all the movie stars walking the red carpet I thought eh why not, I’ll record it and watch it later when I have some alone time! So I did…and I got to fast forward through all the boring parts and the commercials of course, but oh my it was so fun to see what all the stars were wearing, how they wore their hair and makeup and I thought this is such good inspiration for my boudoir!! So I thought I’d dish out my favorite looks and see what you guys thought! 🙂
Let’s start with Guiliana Rancic of E! News! Seriously?! I kind of have a girl crush on her! I love her show with her hubby Guiliana & Bill and I know I don’t know her, but I’m pretty sure we’d be great friends if I did! 😉 She just seems like such a sweetheart! I LOVED her makeup! The all-over bronze-ish brown wash eyeshadow was stunning and such a fun change-up from the usual smokey eye! I have to admit, I also loved her baby pink nail polish. So classy and sweet!
Next up is Charlize Theron. What’s there to say? I’m pretty sure she won like best dressed or something, but I loved her overall nude/natural look! And the sparkly diamond headband?! Come on, how fun is that?!
Yes, Jessica Biel always looks great, but I LOVEd bright pink lips! This picture doesn’t shot it that well, but her lips were definitely the focal point for her makeup and it was such a fun, beautiful pink color! I love that switch up instead of a nude lip!
Next is Emma stone- I loved her dramatic cat eye liner! It was very bold and looked great with her red hair, and made her eyes stand out so much!! Gorgeous and fun!
Next up is Dianna Agron from Glee and she gets my award for the best Red Lip! I mean, that’s how you wear a red lip for sure! It was absolutely stunning!
And last, but not least Reese Witherspoon looked great as always! Her barely there curls and lots of volume make the perfect hairstyle for boudoir! And her makeup was so fresh and bright it looked like she was glowing!
Just think, these movie stars have a number of reasons to get dolled up, get their hair and makeup done by professionals and then go get their pictures made. Of COURSE they look gorgeous! But that doesn’t mean you can’t do the same! Spoil yourself a little with a day of pampering…and be sure to call me while you’re at it! 😉
As with every photo session out there, the most important part of your boudoir session is that your personality shines through! And everyone is different!! This guide is to help you choose the right kind of lingerie to fit your personality! So let’s start with the Sweet-Airy-Romantic inspiration for your boudoir session….
I love the simple and sweet intimates at Aerie. This pink vintage lace bustier is perfect! And would look great paired with matching undies, some nude pumps and maybe a fun necklace!
Anthropologie’s entire store screams sweet, airy and romantic! I love these few pieces from the intimates section of their store, but there are many more fun options to look through! I would definitely check them out! I love the idea of the first one with a matching pair of panties and that’s all! Barefoot and simple with some great light!
Free People also has lots of airy and romantic looking pieces to add to your lingerie drawer. I also love the first look here with the hat, bracelets and all! Reminds me of springtime!
The Kardashian Kollection at Sears has lingerie to fit just about every style out there! I love these two sets for a more spiced up sweet and sultry style!
I hope this helps you choose some pieces that fit your style so that your personality shines through in your photos! Picking out what to wear is almost as fun as the shoot itself! 😉
