I wanted to talk about Vanities in this blog! I think the best part of having one id decorating it. I had been collecting apothecary jars for quite sometime so I have a few of them. I always say I'll put Halloween candy in them but never do lol! I think makeup is even better. We all have pretty lip glosses and brushes.  Why not display them? I found most of mine at Ross, Michael's, and Chasing Fire Flies ( http://www.chasing-fireflies.com/halloween-glass-jars-28set-of-2-29/holiday-occasion/halloween/decorations/16958)

Garden Ridge has some too! I found my tray and plate at Michael's, and my owls at Ross. 

Now, for the Vanity all of it is from Home Depot. I am no carpenter LOL! My friend is going to start  making them so if you're interested email me and I'll forward you to him. He will be shipping them inside the USA. They are custom.   

I still need to find a chair, but that's the easy part. 

I'm in love!

       Here's the answer to  the number 1 question I'm asked! How to get radiant glowing skin.

Before  I apply any makeup I use Philosophy Time in a Bottle Serum ( You can purchase here http://www.sephora.com/time-in-a-bottle-P379916 ) 

The next step is to apply MAC Strobe cream just on the high points of the face. Think cheekbones, chin, middles of forehead. Let it sink in. I usually feed my cats lol! By the time I'm done it's absorbed. 

Next, apply your foundation. Now I use Laura Mercier Creme Foundation. I'm on the dryer side so I use cream based products. If you're on the oily side try Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide ( http://www.sephora.com/smooth-finish-flawless-fluide-P387423?skuId=1612142 ) . 
I use a MAC stippling brush and a damp beauty blender. The tools you use are the biggest part to achieving a flawless canvass! I recently started using a Sigma Kabuki brush instead of  the stippling and I'm loving the results! Head over to Sigma http://www.sigmabeauty.com/F80_Flat_Kabuki_p/f80.htm

After my foundation I do my brows, and eye shadow. I contour and then I highlight with my concealer. My current favorite concealer is NARS creamy concealer in Custard http://www.sephora.com/radiant-creamy-concealer-P377873?skuId=1478387

I don't use powder. I'm all about the dewy look! 

Now the good part! I use Becca Pressed Highlight in Opal, and Moostone with a Makeup Forever fan brush  ( http://www.sephora.com/134-large-powder-fan-brush-P382373?skuId=1536200 )

The fan brush is crucial to get that bright highlight. 

Happy glowing! 

Fashion has of course always been a passion of mine. Long before makeup! 

My style is constantly evolving, but I always make sure one of the pieces I wear is "classic". Whether it's a black pencil skirt ( like above) or a white blazer. 

Above I'm wearing a Garage top, and skirt. Steve Madden shoes.

I'm always hunting for crop tops! Ive also found a few cute ones at http://www.francescas.com/  

If you know where to find crop tops let me know! The struggle is REAL.
