My favorite buys this month

My favorite buys this month
If you wanted to know what I have been buying lately, well this is it. So far these are my favorite buys this month. I was at target and hit a huge sale. I actually got the necklace for $12.00 (it was originally 16.99). I couldn’t help myself and I also got the penguin iphone case which was too adorable to pass up! The purse is my new go-to purse, its navy blue, and matches everything! Of corse the sweater was a must, and the sigma brush is AMAZING! Believe the hype! This brush is perfect for creating a flawless finish. I ordered mine on amazon and was super exited to try it. I was so impressed, it is very gentle on the skin, and applies foundation effortlessly!

Kelly Clarkson wedding day look: How To

Kelly Clarkson wedding day look
Kelly Clarkson looked stunning on her wedding day! I love the lace dress and natural earthy toned makeup. I searched high and low and compiled my favorite products to recreated this look. Starting with the hair, I loved how it’s not all pulled back, it’s very natural. Just take some hot rollers and after blowdrying leave them on for a couple of minutes, then gently create a loose low bun and secure with bobby pins. Finish off with some hair spray.
For the makeup, apply a matte foundation, a nude lipstick and a natural smokey eye. Finish by lining the eyes with a dark brown eyeliner and mascara. Lastly, don’t forget to apply oil control setting powder and your done!

Natural Alternatives

I’m always looking for natural alternatives to try and live a less chemically filled life!  Try swapping what your using now for these more natural options.
