Spring Break: Day Makeup Look

Hi hi, loves, and happy Friday!

I am super excited about this article because it’s the first time I’ve ever done anything like this. With Spring Break just around the corner, I thought I would come to you with a few fun articles just in time for every student’s week in the Spring.

Today, I’m coming to you guys with a Day to Night Makeup tutorial. It’s fairly easy, and it’s pretty versatile because you can have a nice day look that can easily be turned into a darker, more defined evening look without removing any of your makeup. You could also do each one individually and rock it however you like! Anyway, let’s get started with the day look. (:

1. First, we’re going to start with a fresh face. Make sure to wash your face so that your makeup goes on smoothly.

2. Next, I’m using my foundation to even out my skin. I mix these two foundations to match my skintone- I’m combining Covergirl TruBlend in the shade d6 and Covergirl Outlast 2 in 1 in the shade Honey Almond. You can use your fingers, a sponge, or a brush to blend in your foundation, depending on your preference.

3. Now, I’m using my Elf HD Lifting Concealer on my eyes to even out the color as well as prime my eyelids.

4. Now, I’m going to use my Kabuki brush to set my concealer and foundation with my matte powder by Covergirl in Honey Almond.DSC_0061foundation done2

5. Now let’s work on the eyes. I’m going to use this Rose Blush pink shadow all over my eyelid. It’ll brighten my eyes and, since it’s so bright, it will illuminate the other colors I use and make them appear more pigmented.DSC_0088 DSC_0100

6. Now, on the outer corners of the lid and the outer half of my under eyes, I’m going in with this warm Cocoa Brown shadowDSC_0113DSC_0122 DSC_0117

7. Now it’s time to put this lighter brown shade in the crease to define our eye shape.DSC_0127DSC_0119

8. Next, we’ll use a black pencil liner on the upper eyelid for definition. I’m using the shade Black Out by Ulta. After applying it to my top lid, I will smudge it a bit with a smudge brush to make the appearance thicker and smokier.DSC_0141 DSC_0152

9. This is one of my favorite parts of my makeup routine- filling in my eyebrows. Looking at the difference just makes me feel accomplished because a good eyebrow job equals a good day. (: This is the difference between my eyebrows when done and undone.DSC_0187

10. Now, it’s time to frame our eyes by applying mascara to our lashes. I’m using Colossal Volume by Maybelline for a separated, fanned out look.DSC_0202DSC_0203

11. After this, it’s time to put our highlight and bronzer on our cheekbones. I’m using Warm Bronzer by Elf, and I’m using the lighter shade on the left to highlight my cheekbones.DSC_0227

12. Now it’s time to add some color to our cheeks with a rosy blush. This is Dust Rose from Sephora.DSC_0324

13. Finally, we shall apply a tinted balm for a pop of color on the lips. I chose Maybelline’s Baby Lips in Pink Punch. I chose a tinted balm as opposed to a lip stick or lip gloss because it keeps your lips hydrated throughout the day, and the color lasts really well for several hours while on the go without looking to harsh. Perfect for a casual day look.

Here you have it- the final look! I love this makeup look because it perfectly defines all your features without going to overboard for a casual day. It’s pretty versatile, and the eye makeup looks good with any eye color because the colors used are pretty neutral.

DSC_0255 DSC_0250
If you wanted to define any parts of your makeup look more or less, then you’re able to do so and still look well put together. In fact, this makeup look can easily be transformed into an evening look without removing one swipe of makeup. You can even do the night makeup look on its own for an evening out! If you want to see the continuation of this evening makeup look, stay tuned on the blog for part two. (:

Thank you guys so much for checking out this tutorial. It’s my first one and there will plenty more to come! I hope you enjoyed it and, most of all, just have fun! Until next time…DSC_0269

OOTN: Leaf It to Me

Hey there, friends! I hope you all are having a wonderful day or evening and are taking it easy this weekend.

Last night, I had the privilege of attending the Stanley Korshak Shakiversary party to celebrate the store’s one year anniversary of being in its new space. Check out my recap of the festivities here!

IMG_2096Happy SHAKiversary, Stanley Korshak!

I had just as much fun at the party as I did getting ready, so I thought to share with you guys my outfit and makeup details with you all.IMG_2128

I decided to go with a dark brown, smokey and earthy look. I thought that the colors would marry well with my leafy green romper and tan accentsIMG_2130

 

1. After applying my foundation and loose powder, I applied a bronze shadow all over my lid.

2. I then used an angled blush to apply a matte, dark chocolate-brown shadow on the outer half of my lid.

3. Next, I took a matte, medium shaded brown and applied it in my crease for definition.

Beauty Tip: After I applied the brown shadows to my outer corners and my crease, my bronze shadow was lost under the matte colors. Because I wanted my bronze shadow to pop more and brighten my eye, I re-applied the bronze shadow a little bit more with a smaller, angled shadow brush. The angle and small size helped to make my application more precise.

4. Once my shadows had set, I used black liquid liner on my eyelid to create a thick winged look. There are so many ways to create a winged liner look, so sound off in the comments or like this article if you would like for me to post a tutorial!

Beauty Tip: To make sure that your liquid liner won’t smudge, crease, or fade throughout the day or night, once the liner has dried, set it with a matching colored shadow! This will make your eyeliner last so much longer and maintain a fresh look.

5. I brushed and shaped my brows, and, to ensure that they stayed in place, I brushed them with a bit of clear brow gel. I filled my brows in with a mix of dark brown and black brow powder; dark brown alone would be a tad too light, and black alone would be too harsh.

6. Finally, I applied a red-brown liquid lipstick to go with the earthy look.

IMG_1899

Now, let’s move on to the outfit details!

IMG_2148

Romper: H&M | Blazer: Jessica Simpson | Shoes: Steve Madden | Purse: Ralph Lauren | Necklace: Forever 21 |

IMG_2135 IMG_2140 IMG_2138IMG_2141

I simply can not get over this romper from H&M’s Conscious line- it’s so fun and perfect for the summer. Rompers are pretty tricky because you are basically wearing a top and bottom sewn together in one size, so you can’t pick and choose the size of the top and bottom. This, however, is the first romper that I have tried on and loved the fit. Not only is the tailoring close to perfect, this leafy romper is very comfortable! I added the tan belt to define my waist a bit more because without it, the romper appeared to be a straight cut. The addition of a belt to most outfits is a great way to quickly add some shape and provide the illusion of an hourglass figure.
IMG_2152 IMG_2146 IMG_2144

My favorite part of this romper has to be the leaf pattern. It is such a fresh, fun look, and I think it could definitely be dressed up or down! For the party, I wore it in a more formal and dressy fashion, but I can’t wait to wear it again and try out a more casual look! I’ll update you all on how that goes… (:
IMG_2143

Thank you guys so much for reading, and I hope you liked the mini makeup tutorial! Like and/or comment on this post is you would like for me to do more makeup tutorials, and also let me know what other types of articles you all would like to see from me! I love you guys so so much, and until next time…IMG_2149

Stay Fab,

Happy SHAKiversary!

Hello hello, sweet sunshines, and happy Friday! I hope you all are having a wonderful start to your weekend. I have been so busy recently, and just returned from a week in California! It was my first time to visit the Sunshine State, and I am already looking forward to the next time I can travel out there. I’ll be sharing a recap of my visit soon, so be on the look out for that! (:

Until then, I want to share with you all my recap of last night’s events. Stanley Korshak is a high-end store in Dallas that sells designer clothing for men and women such as Alice+Olivia, Rag and Bone, and Zac Posen. Stanley Korshak also sells bridal gowns and home goods. A year ago this weekend, Stanley Korshak revamped their setting and opened up in a new space, so of course they hosted a party with The Perennial Style sisters and Young Teens Against Cancer to celebrate their one year SHAKiversary! IMG_2096IMG_1803 IMG_1805 IMG_1798_2 It was my first time into the new store, and it is a gorgeous space. The layouts are fresh, clean, and fun, the store is bright and vibrant with its abundance of lights and windows, and most importantly, the clothing, shoes, and accessories are to die for, of course! IMG_1800_2 IMG_1799_2 IMG_1812 IMG_1814_2

How cute is this layout! I love the three varying dress styles as well as the feminine and artistic backdrop for the center mannequin.

IMG_1822 IMG_1823_2

It’s all in the details: What I noticed is that parts of the store are sectioned according to the designer. I think that is such a great detail that can be appreciated as it makes the shopping experience so much easier and more enjoyable for shoppers!

IMG_1824

The entirety of the front half and back half of the store is lined with tall windows from the floor to the ceiling. It provided such a welcoming and lively ambience.

IMG_1829 IMG_1825_2

The jewelry at the Shak varied from simple to formal and would suit anyone’s style! Definitely one of my favorite parts of the store. IMG_1867IMG_2095I had the chance to catch up with the Flowers sisters (from left to right: Ellen Flowers, Janie Flowers, and Blair Flowers) of the Perennial Style, and it was so lovely to see them again. They all looked gorgeous as usual and were as sweet as ever!

I had such a wonderful time at the SHAKiversary party, and I look forward to what the next year holds for Stanley Korshak! Thank you so much to Ellen Flowers for extending an invitation to me. What a great event it was! If you want details about what I wore to the party, check out my outfit post here! If you liked this article, don’t forget to like, comment, and subscribe! Feel free to check out my Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to keep up with me when I’m not blogging away. Thanks a bunch for reading, my loves, and until next time… IMG_1898 Stay Fab, Kay B xx.

Sweet Valentine: Daytime Look

Hello, hello, hello my darlings, and Happy New Year!! I apologize for being unable to ring in the new year with you all and for the low supply of new posts, but you know well enough that I am never far from you and return as quickly as possible. (: I hope that 2014 holds fond memories for you all and that new ventures, lessons and sweet times lie ahead in 2015.

Welcome to my first post of 2015! (cue the confetti) With the first major holiday of the year already a month behind us, we have Valentine’s Day to look forward to. Yes, even if you do not have a significant other you can still expect to have fun on V-Day! Whether you will be spending the day with your lovie or taking on the town with your best girl friends, you can still look killer while doing it.

IMG_4642[1]

Dress: H&M | Shoes: Steve Madden | Jewelry: Charming Charlie | Nail Polish: Maybelline ColorShow

Valentine’s Day dawns the most pink, red and white than any other day of the year, but you do not necessarily need to put together an outfit that makes you look like you covered yourself in glue and frolicked through Hallmark’s Valentine’s Day isle. I’ve put together a daytime look that is perfect to wear while with your girls or your boyf and it includes the festive colors in a more wearable fashion. (:

IMG_4648 IMG_4649

Note that my dress is not all red, white, or pink, but within the pattern, pink is the predominant color. I accented my look with neutral-toned, gemed jewelry to add a touch of formality. The look is sweet, feminine, and is perfect for a fun day with your special loves.

IMG_4654

Believe it or not, this is my first bubble skirt purchase (a bubble skirt is one that comes out at the dress’s waist line and has a rounded figure), and I really like it! I appreciate the placement of the waistline- dresses that have their wait’s seam at your natural waist are some of the most flattering as opposed to an empire wait that makes your torso, at times, appear smaller and your mid-section wider (depending on your body type).

IMG_4655 IMG_4656 IMG_4657 IMG_4658

When wearing a dress as busy as this, it’s best to choose a solid colored shoe. That’s not to say that the shoe itself can’t make it’s own statement. These suede, ankle-strap, open toed platforms from Steve Madden are simple in their neutral tone, but don’t fail to stand out with its thick straps and heel.

IMG_4660 IMG_4659 IMG_4668 IMG_4669IMG_4653

I opted for a soft, romantic look since this is a daytime outfit. I love how the muted fuchsia lip pops but doesn’t appear harsh with the other softened makeup features. A light rosy blush and a soft smoky eye married beautifully with this ensemble. Like this post and comment below if you want to see this make-up tutorial!

IMG_4664 IMG_4662 IMG_4661

Just some candids of me being… well, me. (:

Well, my darlings, that’s all I have for you today! I hope this inspired you somehow and that you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed putting this together for you. Remember that regardless of whether or not you have a Valentine, you should show some extra love to others- it’s what keeps our world moving after all!

Christmas Gift Guide for Her + Holiday Giveaway!

 

Happy Holidays, my loves! We have T-minus 6 days until Christmas and I am more than excited! Spending time with family and friends, seeing all the Christmas lights and movies, everything is just so magical at Christmas time. Something that goes into making the season really fun is buying gifts for your family and friends!

Gift Guide- Cover

It can be tough to decide what to get for those close to you, especially the ladies in our lives. So, here is a little gift guide to make the gift shopping process a little easier for you all during this exciting, magical season.

1. Kate Spade Goodies

Gift Guide- Kate Spade

If you know a lady who loves to write, journal, is hyper-organized, or just loves Kate Spade, then this is the gift for her. I love the polka dot and sparkle designs from Kate Spade for their office collections, especially this Agenda and Pen. Their mugs and phone cases are so cute as well. I don’t know about you, but if someone got me a gift that made my everyday tasks a bit cuter and more fun, I would be quite appreciative. Besides, who says you can’t be chic while jotting down notes, whipping out your phone, or making yourself a nice cup of tea?

2. The Best Albums to Close Out 2014

Gift Guide- Music

Music is a huge part of my life, so I am a bit biased when I include this gift idea in here along with the specific artists like Taylor Swift and Charli XCX. BUT if you’ve got a friend who is always humming a tune or gets lost in the music, get her a few CD’s that speak to her taste! Whether she’s a fanatic for boybands like One Direction or goes crazy for alternative rock groups like Walk the Moon, getting a music CD from her favorite musician(s) is a thoughtful gift. Plus, it means more to get CD’s from groups you know she loves than getting the generic, basic… dare I say it… iTunes gift card. *shudders* (But we all love iTunes, so no one can complain about that gift either (: )

3. Bath and Body Sets

Gift Guide- Bath and Body

Another lovely gift idea for your girlfriends and lady-loved ones (I tried… you know what I mean) is a bath and body set! If she likes mysterious yet floral scents, then the BCBGMaxazria Bon Genre 4-Piece Fragrance Gift Set is the perfect gift set. For a cool, wintery scent that is a breeze of crisp air upon opening the package (my inner poet has been unleashed and she can’t be tamed) then the Philosophy Snow Angel Super set is the winning ticket! Finally, Julep has some awesome hand and body lotions, and for a sweet, warm scent that is great to use all year round, purchase the Hands in the Air hand lotion gift set. Honestly, with any of these three, you can’t go wrong!

4. Too Faced Makeup+Brushes

Gift Guide- Makeup

Not only are makeup sets great Christmas gifts, but they are also awesome stocking stuffers! A brand that I have really started loving recently is Too Faced, and their palettes are just darling! Their new Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette and Beauty Wishes Sweet Kisses Palette are great gifts because 1) the quality of the shadows, bronzers and blushes are amazing, and the colors are dimensional as well as neutral enough to compliment any skin tone! The browns, burgundies, pinks, and shimmers are beautiful for the Christmas season and beyond and are sure to make this lucky gal quite holly and jolly.

5. Sunglasses

Gift Guide- Sunglasses

You guys know by now that I absolutely love sunglasses and I find them to be such a cute accessory. Sunglasses would be such a cute Christmas gift, especially as a stocking stuffer. The gorgeous sunnies you see above are from an awesome company called Raen Optics. They have some amazing quality glasses that take sun ray protection to entirely new- and fashion forward- level.

IMG_2947[1]IMG_2948[1]IMG_2953[1]IMG_2955[1] IMG_2956[1]IMG_2960[1]

One of my favorite lenses from Raen is their Remmy Lens. This is Remmy in Crystal and I absolutely love it! It’s nothing like any of the other sunglasses I own and I’m so in love with it. I ordered these from DITTO using their awesome try-on-at-home technology and I was nothing short of impressed. Check out my article about DITTO and their virtual try-on-at-home feature- you’ll be amazed by what you see. Thanks so much for the sunnies, DITTO!

Now, don’t go away just yet! I want to thank you guys so much for all your love and support- that is the greatest Christmas gift you guys could give me! To me, Christmas is more about giving than receiving, so because I love you guys so much, I have a Christmas gift for you- MY FIRST GIVEAWAY!!

DITTO: Revolutionizing the Art of Shopping

Hello, my darlings, happy December! I hope you had lovely Thanksgivings and are ready to dive into the Christmas season. I had been a little under the weather, but I am back up and ready to share some exciting things with you as 2014 comes to a close and we start anew in 2015. (Let’s be real- did 2014 even happen?!)

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

If you have been following me for a while, then you know that I LOVE sunglasses. Getting the right pair that not only suits my style, but also fits my face shape and size is very important to me. I’m also very careful when I buy sunglasses because I actually browse for mine online- at times, I’m not sure if the sunshades will fit my head well or if they may look a little off because of my face shape, and the uncertainty can really bother me!

Imagine ordering a pair of sunglasses that you found to be ultra chic, but, when you open the box and try those bad boys on, you realize you actually opened up a box of disappointment. Avoiding these issues is ultimately the goal, and I’m so excited to share this amazing sunglasses company that has truly revolutionized the art of shopping.

Meet DITTO, the company that has made me and several others look at online shopping in a whole new way. DITTO and I partnered up to share with you their new online store, amazing try-at-home technology and a sweet giveaway! I had the chance to try out their site and all the fun that comes along with it and I want you guys to follow along! Keep reading for all the juicy details…

home page

When you first get to DITTO’s website, you can browse their vast collection of sunglasses or optical glasses for both men and women. You can also take their quiz that will assist in putting together a personal shop just for you based on your style and exactly what you are looking for. Just click the “Take the Quiz” button on the front page and you are ready to start!

Quiz.1

The first question in the quiz is pretty basic- are you looking for Men’s glasses or Women’s glasses?

Quiz.2

The next one is also pretty simple- are looking for optical glasses or sunglasses?

Quiz.3

Here’s the toughie- Do you know what you’re looking for? Actually, one may think that this is a tough question, but DITTO makes this process as easy as possible. I personally know what specific shades I like and want, so I chose “I know the specific look I want.”

Quiz.4 Quiz.5

The next question will ask what “look” you are going for. These looks are the different sunglass frames DITTO offers, so select the ones you like best for yourself!

Quiz.6 Quiz.7

The final step is to select the looks that suit your own personal style! If you do not see any that really resonate with you, just click the “see more” button in the upper right corner until you are happy with your selection! This step is going to help the stylists choose the perfect pairs of sunnies for your store.

Quiz.3

If you don’t know what exactly you are looking for, that’s okay too! Just select the “I don’t know the specific look I want.” option and be on your merry way.

Quiz_Clueless1 Quiz_Clueless2

To get an idea of what your style is, DITTO will ask you to pick out some items that resonate with you. For instance, if you like the way that varsity jacket looks, go ahead and select it!

Quiz_Clueless3

After choosing your items, the final question will be to choose the outfits that suit your style, the same question that appeared earlier for those who know the looks they’re aiming for.

Quiz.8

That’s the end of the quiz, but it’s not the end of the fun! You’ll be asked to have your measurements taken so that 1) your glasses are the perfect fit and (this is the best part… prepare to be mind blown) 2) you can virtually try on your sunglasses…AT HOME. Yes, you did read that correctly and it’s pretty phenomenal. If you’re not quite ready to take the photos and measurements, you can always go back later!

my ditto profile

Once you have followed the prompts you’ll be taken to your Ditto profile! This is what mine looks like right now; as you can see, my style has been evaluated and it shows me which styles suit my persona and face shape the best. On the right, my fit is shown too. My face width has been categorized as wide, so my recommended glasses will be for wider face widths. How perfect is that?

recommendations recommendations2

These are the recommendations I received for my style and fit- there are optical glasses as well as sunglasses for a wide range of choices.

Here comes the coolest part… trying on the glasses in the comfort of your own home!

try at home

Wow. Just wow. I selected a pair of sunglasses that I liked and I know exactly what it may look like on me before I place my order. How amazing! I don’t know about you all, but DITTO is now my number one place to shop for sunnies.

Little Black Dress Designer Fashion Show

Hello, sweet friends, Happy Studded Collar Sunday!

I’d like to start off with a few announcements and thank-yous as well (Have to have an attitude for gratitude!)

First, thank you all so incredibly much for your kind feedback and the love you sent me about the Tootsies Homecoming Lookbook! I had so much fun putting it together for you all, and for your reaction to be so immensely positive was overwhelming. Plus, several of you guys sent me tweets and messages saying it helped you compose a fabulous ensemble for your next dance! I love you all so much and I’m overjoyed that you all enjoyed the post. I’ll do more projects like this in the future for you. (:

I would also send another big thank you to Tootsies for the opportunity to work with you all! I felt like a princess and the dresses, suits, accessories and more were gorgeous. It was such a fun experience and I am eternally grateful for it.

Now, I have one quick announcement before we dive right into the post. I have a new Instagram and Twitter! I’m switching over to an account I already have set up. My new Instagram is @16kayb, and my username for Twitter is also @16KayB. Go follow those accounts if you haven’t already, and in a couple of days I will change the usernames from @16kayb to @studdedcollar for consistency. I’m really active on my social media links, so go check them out. Now, let’s get started with all the fun!

You all may or may not know that the past two weeks have been occupied by Fashion Week in the world’s various capitals- first New York, then London, and today Milan’s came to a close. While I was unable to attend New York Fashion Week this year, I had the chance to have some local Fashion Week fun! I attended the Little Black Dress Designer Fashion Show and Party at Tootsies earlier this week. Several of Dallas’s fashion elite attended, and I had an amazing time meeting them and enjoing the show!

Show5 Show9 Show10

Such an honor to meet designer Esé (left) and one of Dallas’s fashion elite, Christine (right)

The fashion show was hosted by Tootsies for the Little Black Dress Designer Foundation. This organization gives students and up-and-coming designers the opportunity to re-invent the classic Little Black Dress to potentially win an academic scholarship, funding for their brand, and career networking opportunities to kickstart their career. It’s an amazing association that has already awarded over $100,000 in scholarships to students since it was founded by Jeff Shell n 2008. Tell me this isn’t an amazing concept? (Seriously don’t, because you’d be dead wrong.) (:

Show6IMG_1074

Had an amazing time attending the show with my beautiful best friend (:

I opted for a black dress because not only was it the theme of the show, but the little black dress is a classic statement. This gorgeous dress has a classic simplicity and became my canvas for the evening. I love that the underlay of the dress is like a bandage, or body-con, dress, while the overlay is a flowy, flirty, sheer material that gives the dress a higher level of formality and grace.

I feel like when girls wear black they always have a pop of loud color(s). That is totally okay (in moderation), but another option is to add color variety through metallics! I wore this gorgeous silver diamond drop necklace from Swawrovski, diamond studs, and then switched it up with gold Guess shoes and an all black clutch with divine gold and diamond detailing. My ring and bracelet had golden and jewel accents as well. It takes a plain black dress from drab to fab without wearing a fluorescent pink belt or crimson blue pumps. (:

Show18 Show19 Show17

I had an unbelievably wonderful time at the show, and I thank Tootsies immensely. The show was beautiful and the dresses were to die for. Now, ladies, I want you to remember this quote- it’s golden:

“One is never over-dressed or underdressed in a little black dress,” ~ Karl Lagerfeld

Much love to you all.

Stay Fab,
