To start our morning off today, Taylor and I decided we needed a coffee fix, so we headed on down to our favorite local spot. The menu there is overwhelming because there are just so many awesome options to choose from. Not only are the drinks delightful but the atmosphere is incredible. When I walk in, I feel a sense of comfort and peace; super eclectic if you will. Taylor and I decided to skip out on coffee and go for a matcha (green tea) latte, which may I add was PHENOMENAL. I love matcha for it’s amazing health benefits. You should definitely look them up sometime.
As Taylor and I received our drinks , we decided to take them outside to the coffee shops deck. It was a beautiful overcast day. I know that may sound strange to some of you, but a lot of the time , these are the days that make me the happiest. I decided to dress casual and comfy. I wore a pair of worn out jeans, a Ramones tee with a black cropped jacket , a burgundy scarf ( in which I made myself) and combat boots to throw it all together. I had a lot of girls asking me today what curling iron I used on my hair to achieve the look that I did. I used a 1 1/2 ceramic curling iron by Revlon.
The only products I use are TREsemme Thermal Creations as a heat protectant and garnier fructis marvelous oil. WHICH may I add is the ONLY oil that I have ever found to fully saturate and maintain / manage my frizz all day! I am very impressed with that product. My hair is fortunately naturally curly, so I don’t really have to worry about hairspray and IF I ever use anything I only use One N’ Only Argan Oil Volume hair spray- which is mainly a spray to help maintain frizz and protect your hair from the humidity. I am TOTALLY against hairspray otherwise. I don’t think people realize how damaging it is to their hair. All in all , it was another lovely day spent with my darling sister.
Throwback to a few days ago, Taylor and I decided to go for some dark, Merlot lips by Marykay. She wears the cat eye well, as I went for just a few strokes of mascara. This is one of my favorite looks. I believe this shade of lipstick compliments pale skin well. I will be posting tips and tricks so you can find what shade will fit you best! It’s important to wear lipstick with confidence. Something about a girl with lipstick can be intimidating. I remember once at school, I overheard a girl telling a guy- ” I love her lipstick.” and him replying- “I won’t approach a woman wearing lipstick. I am intimidated, cus I know she means business.” So wear it with confidence ladies!
Before church services this Sunday Taylor went for more of a simple look. She shaped and filled her brows, and went for a dramatic cat eye to create a cute yet simplistic look. I filled and shaped my brows, did a cat eye, and added merlot lipstick by Mary Kay. It is one of my favorite lip colors! When I feel that I don’t do my makeup well, I always trust in my cat eye glasses to shield it, yet still make it somewhat cute! When in doubt, grab the cute glasses!!
This picture allows you to see more of how I do my cat eye, and how I shaped my eyebrows. As you can see, merlot definitely is my go to shade!
