Get Ready With Me | Glamorous Weekend Edition feat. makeup inspired by Blake Lively

This is the first of my Get Ready with Me series, and I hope you'll be pleased by the inspiration from celebrity style icon Blake Lively! It is a slightly different take on the standard GRWM video, but I did my best to stay true to the concept by showing the complete makeup tutorial along with styled hair and an outfit. I love Blake Lively's effortless, chic perspective, so when I saw the Gucci Premiere Eau de Toilette campaign photos and videos that I had to attempt a recreation! I hope you'll enjoy the glamorous, sweeping views of Los Angeles from the famed Griffith Observatory, shot by the ever lovely and creative Kassia Phoy. xo

TOP 3 I My Holy Grail Toners

I love toners. Some women think toner is an unnecessary step, but it has always made a world of a difference in my skin's condition. Many cleansers leave my skin feeling parched and others leave traces of makeup behind, so toners have become an essential step in my skin care routine. Toning lotions rebalance the pH levels and prep my skin for treatments. Note: Just keep in mind that toners must be applied with cotton pads to properly remove makeup residue and gently lift away dull or dead skin cells. Now check out the break down of my favorite three toners after the jump!

Kevyn Aucoin The Loose Shimmer Shadow Review, Photos, Swatches [7 SHADES]

The Kevyn Aucoin Loose Shimmer Shadow ($29 USD each) is the only loose eyeshadow formula that I will use. I love the unique shade selection and how the colors glimmer as they catch light. These shadows are finely milled, so they will never look glittery or heavy on the lids. The consistency is feather-light, but the colors have so much impact because of the pearlescent pigments, which is why I am addicted to these Loose Shimmer Shadows! Check out the gorgeous swatches after the jump!
