Studio Gear Makeup





I received these three products in the mail the other week, and I was so excited to try them. The only other Studio Gear products I have tried were the Holiday Palette (last seen here), and their CC Cream. I have to say that I haven't put these products down since I've started using them.

I was really excited to try the lash primer. I've never used one before, so I was excited to see how it would work. This one helps to thicken and condition lashes, which I thought was great since who wouldn't want long thick lashes?  It comes out as a slightly sticky white mascara formula. When applying, I make sure to coat all my lashes. It's kind of hard to tell where you applied in some places as there is no color. Once applied you have to wait approximately 30 seconds for it to dry before you apply your mascara over it. I really do think that this primer has contributed to my lashes looking extremely full and long lately. Every time I apply mascara, regardless of the kind, I feel as if I have false lashes on.

The Impactfull mascara has quickly become my new favorite! I love how thick the brush is, which makes it easy to apply. The brush grips lashes so you can apply it from root to tip on each lash creating a full effect. When used with the primer your lashes will definitely be looking a lot longer and thicker. 

The last product is the Invincible gel cream eye color. It can be used as a gel eyeliner and a gel shadow for smudging or creating a smokey eye. I personally have been using it as a gel eyeliner, and I was definitely impressed. When wearing mascara on my top lashes, I normally use a liquid or solid eyeliner that I apply by using a wet angled brush. This gel cream has a super buttery texture that surprisingly stays on all day. It's also easy to apply when using an angled eyeliner brush. The gel gives you more control over where you want your eyeliner to go, which is helpful when creating a winged eye effect.

Kate Spade Fall 2014

Whenever fashion week rolls around, I'm always excited for Kate Spade. She always has a playful, feminine and colorful collection that I can't wait to get my hands on. I love the large bow details on the multi-colored dress, the nude skirt, and the black and white coat. I also noticed a lot of texture in her garments with faux fur on collars, purses, and dresses. The texture adds a nice detail to her pieces and definitely makes them feel fall appropriate.

WILDFOX F/W 2014

How amazing is the Wildfox fall RTW collection? I love all the light weight fabrics and soft prints. The collection definitely has a bohemian relaxed style that you can take right off the runway into everyday. I especially love all the really long sweaters that are perfect for layering in the spring or fall.

Matching Separates



 Matching separates is a fresh new way to create an appearance of a one piece like a dress or jumpsuit but with much more versatility. These mix and match pieces can be worn together or paired with other items to create a completely different look. The pant matching separates create a longing effect that a jumpsuit would have but gives the ease of wearing a top and pants. The matching crop top and skirts are a really cute way to get the head to toe effect of a dress but also gives flexibility of wearing two pieces.

Black Dress





Dress Tobi (similar here and here)/ Sweater Forever 21 (old) / Boots Chinese Laundry / Necklace Ted Baker + Nashelle / Watch Michael Kors / Rings Sabo Skirt / Tights Target


I love the simplicity and versatility in this basic black dress. One of my favorite ways to wear it during the winter is with a comfy oversized sweater. This is one of those outfits you can just throw on quickly to be comfortable but still look like you spent time getting ready.
