Weekend Getaway Makeup Must Haves!

I recently took a little trip to Disney Land and absolutely dreaded my makeup situation while I was packing. But then I remembered that this is the first true test I will be giving my newest foundation. After a hours of sweating, I looked in the mirror and was so impressed with my makeup. 

Now I have never actually done any sort of makeup posts, which is actually really weird because I'm makeup obssessed! So with my excitement from the staying power of my makeup, I tweeted asking if you guys wanted me to talk makeup essentials for trips and y'all loved it. 

Just a quick run down of my skin type:
I have sensitive, some what acne prone skin and I usually get quite oily throughout the day around my T-zone, usually in my nose area. 

(from left to right)

  • Dry Shampoo - Whenever I'm out and about and sweating a bunch, if I get a chance to go back to the hotel or possible pop in the bathroom, (if you have a purse size one) I love to spray some dry shampoo in my hair to keep my hair looking fresh. I love the entire Suave line.
  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup: This makeup literally does stay in place. Not only that, but it also kept my T-zone COMPLETELY shine free, even when I was sweating up a storm!!! I seriously can't say enough about this foundation. (Theres a picture below of my makeup with no touchups at the end of the day) Oh and it does NOT leave your skin dry!! +++
  • Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Liquid Sunscreen SPF 70: This sunscreen is so nice and really sheer so once you put it on, it really absorbs and doesn't feel like you have sunscreen on. I put this on under my makeup and practically forgot I had it on. 
  • DiorShow Mascara: Really, all you need a good mascara that lasts for YOU. I've tried water-proof mascaras that flake, ones that people recommend for staying power, new ones, old ones, but at the end of the day just find one that works with your eyelashes and has some staying power so you're not a flaky mess by the end of the day. 
  • Sephora Liquid Liner: This Sephora liner is really long wear and has never failed me. It lasts all day, doesn't get flaky, and doesn't smudge if I cry.

(This was meant to be a funny picture but I actually thought it
 showed how well my makeup stayed at the end of the day)
And the pic below was taken mid-day.

I originally planned to take this sunscreen with me but I tried it out beforehand and wasn't really impressed. It felt a bit greasy and for someone with oily skin, it just made things worse. I'd recommend this for normal skin and maybe if you're not wearing makeup!

Thanks for checking out my first makeup blog post!! Hopefully, if you guys liked this one, I can do more posts for you guys!

High Low Love

I recently had to organize a bunch of outfits for a prototype of the Lookform profiles. While this seemed so easy when I agreed to it, I was suddenly very aware of my "small" wardrobe. Haha, I say small because often times I'm referring to the quote, "When a woman says, 'I have nothing to wear,' what she really means is 'There's nothing here for who I'm supposed to be today.'" I totally agree with this, one day I am totally in love with an outfit and the next I wonder why I even bought it. Haha #girlproblems!

Nonetheless, I love high-low tops and how versatile they can be. I love to pair them with everything from shorts, to jeans, to skirts, and even over dresses. Here's how I paired it with jeans for a super casual outfit.

Outfit Details:
Floppy hat: CottonOn (similar here)
 High-Low Top: Olsenboye (similar here)
Skinny Jeans: Forever21 (similar here)
 Sandals: CottonOn (read more here)
 Handbag: Calvin Klein (similar here)

DisneyLand Adventures

The other day, Jeremy and I took a spur of the moment DisneyLand trip with some friends (meet Amir and Jordyn!) Having an annual pass is seriously the greatest thing ever because we can randomly decide to take a trip if Jeremy has the day off.  Here are some pics from our adventure and below are some of my tips for DisneyLand trips!


Disney Land Essentials

Wearing shorts is a summer essential for any DisneyLand trip. Seriously, you will thank me. This trip, I actually wore a long T-shirt dress from Target and wore some shorts underneath.

Another essential for me is a flannel shirt. You can wrap it around your waist during the day (instead of renting a locker) and it can also cover your bum if you go on a water ride and end up all wet! And when it gets cold at night, you have a light cover up!

And my last essential is hand wipes or some type of hand sanitizer. When you're constantly touching things that hundreds of other people are also touching, you REALLY want to sanitize.

For those of you who are interested in Lookform updates, 

Here is an example of how a profile page will look!
