Denim and Flowers

Spring seems to have skipped straight over Florida but I’m still dressing like it! Using a denim jacket in Spring is ideal because it’s lighter than most sweaters and versatile to use with different looks. I wore this outfit to work and it was a hit at the office! I also switched up my  florals and wore the pattern with a dark base. The small bouquets break up the dark and it made for a beautiful contrast.  I kept the shoes basic because it’s what I prefer for work,  but this can definitely look amazing with red shoes or a pair of lace up sandals with the colorful pom poms.

Spring Makeup Trends 2017 (Maquillaje para la Primavera)

From Zac Posen to DKNY, Jeremy Scott to Christian Siriano, one makeup trend for Spring 2017 stands out above all: Fresh clean skin. While some designers added bold lips, eyes, and brows, the face was left to the natural beauty of the runway models, and this is such an amazing trend for the everyday.  We can store our full coverage foundations for now, because embracing our freckles and small imperfections are in! Exciting update: I’m going to try and translate a few posts at a time into Spanish!!! It’s not the best right now because I’m used to speaking, not writing. It’s scary but with any skill it takes practice.

I created two looks inspired by SS 17 fashion week. The first is more for daytime. I used a medium coverage foundation and concealer to even out my skin and cover my dark circles. Then I used a peach blush and a little bit of bronzer to add dimension and color. I also used the same blush and bronzer on my eyes to keep things simple. I finished off  with mascara for an easy look that took me 15 miutes tops! The “night” look is even simpler: I added black liner and shadow for an easy smoky eye, and a berry lipstick to add drama.

Day Look for SpringDay Look for SpringNight Look for SpringNight Look for Spring

Casi todo los diseñadores presentarton  un tema en común para el maquillaje del Fashion week Spring/Summer 2017: el rostro fresco.

En esta temporada se puede usar bases de cobertura ligera y guardar las de cobertura completa para mas adelante.

Yo me inspire para crear dos looks differente uno para el dia en el cual use una base de cobertura mediana para igualar el tono de piel. Despues use un blush peach y un bronzer para agregar dimesion y color a la cara. Tambien use los mismos productos en los ojos para simplificar el proceso. Termine con una mascara para un look facil que toma alrededor de 15 minutos applicarlo

El look de noche es mas facil:

Ya que tenemos la base del dia, ahora agregar un deliniardor y sombra negra para crear un smoky eye. Y despues un labial berry para añadir glamour.

Spring Haul!!

So I did some shopping over the past month and a half… The good news is that I’ll have a ton of inspiration for new posts and videos for the next few weeks. The bad news is that now I have to find a new reason to justify my purchases lol. I filmed a video hauling my nw stash I will leave links to everything I showed in the description box of the video as well as here, happy watching!

Cozy and Casual: A Case of the Mondays

Florida is warming up!  That means that the thermostats are about to be dropped and I have to still dress like it’s fall for the indoors. I wanted to stay on the cozy side for work to shake the Monday blues a little.
