Cindy Crawford and Honeymoon Lips♡

One of Cindy Crawford's signature looks is her muted nude/brown lips! I've been searching for a lipstick similar to this.  That iconic 90's supermodel brown lip.  That's when I came across this lipstick by NYX in the shade "Honeymoon". 

Honeymoon is a mauve-blush that gives off a delicate brown color on the lips. I thought it was a perfect pick to replicate Cindy's signature 90's brown lip ♡





I used the BH cosmetics pinky nude lip liner "Samantha" underneath to give it a more pinky tone.

 No Flash and Flash of Honeymoon♡

Frosted Lips and Shimmery Tips ♡

     I was shopping for a new nail polish the other day and found this one by Essie. It's the perfect frosty shimmery pink! It reminded me of the 80's and then those dreamy frosty makeup looks popped into my mind. 

  

    
 Remember the yummy smelling Bonne Bell frosted gloss and chapsticks? That's one of the things that I remember when I see these dreamy makeup looks too! The shimmering pink lipstick paired icy purple, blue and pink eye shadows are one of my favorite trends in makeup.  

 

We see a lot of these looks in the 80s'and 90's, but this look seemed to pop up throughout the decades.

                      From Mademoiselle, April 1966

I have a few frosty lipsticks that would be perfect to help create these looks!! Here are my top 3!


Lime Crime's "Mirage" (Mauve Frosty Pink)





 Nars "Cat Fight" Lipstick (Nude Frosty Mauve)




Colourpop's Gloss in "Double Agent" (prismatic lilac)


♡ Phoebe Cates
                         

     I love Drew Barrymore's makeup here as well. I've been trying a few different products from her "Flower Beauty" line and I think it might be one of my favorite beauty brands so far.  Not to mention that it's created by ummm ♡ ♡ ♡ Drew Barrymore ♡ ♡ ♡

Inspo and thoughts for the week ♡ Fluffy heels and Fishnets


Happy April! Inspo this week is fluffy heels and fishnets♡






I used to worry about not getting enough done or not accomplishing enough goals.  This would then lead to a mix of procrastination, doubt and worry. I'm learning to trust where I am and not doubt myself so much. Doubt is the worse. It's something I'm trying to overcome it's definitely something I struggle with a lot. Doubt and fear. I'm happy I'm letting those things go.

I'm starting to write down everything I want to accomplish for the day.  Once you cross out everything on your list, it feels so good! Even if its little things, like making the bed, getting the laundry done or cleaning out old makeup you never use.





I remembered this photo I had saved on my phone.  It was a picture of a note my professor wrote at the end of this big final essay we had to do.  After writing that essay, I felt so worried that I didn't do well or that my writing and what I was writing about would sound bad or dumb. When I saw what he wrote, I felt so happy. 
The things you say to others matter. Trusting yourself matters♡



And don't forget!

Brunch and this months favorites - colourpop ♡

Happy Sunday ♡ Today I made some eggs and peanut butter and banana toast for breakfast. I also found this cute sassy mug at target. It comes with a purple mug but that one has the eyes rolling instead of winking. I wasn't in the mood for that one today. ;)  

I wanted to share some of my favorites this month.  I got a few products from Colourpop's new spring collection. The packaging is my favorite they have come out with so far. The quality is pretty crazy good.  I'm loving everything so far!
