Makeup Haul: Yves Saint Laurent & Tarte

Makeup has always been fun to me and a great way to express myself when I have the time to create makeup looks. On a regular day I stay pretty consistent and don't change things up too much except for my lip colors. 
I have a variety of lip colors I like. Lips can change your whole look up without a lot of time and effort. I always keep a selection of lip products in my purse in the chance I need to change my look up a bit during the day when time is not on my side. 
Before my sisters wedding I thought I might add some new colors and makeup to my collection for the 2017 spring and summer season. I've been into YSL makeup and beauty products lately. This time I also got a shadow palette from Tarte. 

From Yves Saint Laurent I got a blush an two lip colors. I got the blush in the shade 6 Passionnee. It is a very natural pink with an orangey-nude color in the center. On the skin I would say the color seems most like a coral pink.

A simple and easy way to make an outfit more fun is with accessories. A scarf for example can really amp up a casual look. Also, white pumps are a must have right now. I don't have any because I haven't found my perfect pair yet but when I do, I will get some!

I know I didn't touch on all of the pieces but if you have any questions or wonder how to put an outfit together with one of these…

Luxury Looks for Less: Hermes Birkin, Chanel Double Flap, etc.

I did a post a very long time ago called Hot Handbags Under $200 My style was more trendy then I feel like, based on my posts in the past. I've now evolved into wearing and choosing more classic pieces since I'm older.

I'd like to do another post on handbags since my style has changed quite a lot. This time I am going to show you a luxury bag and then a handbag(s) that is very similar but much less expensive. I want to show both sides of the spectrum because if I do a mid-level pricing overall and don't show the luxury item inspiring the look my ideas might get lost in translation. The people who like name brands may not be attracted to the content as much and the others who like the less expensive bags may not want to spend that mid-level price either.

This way when you look at the luxury handbag you can compare it to the less expensive bag and sort of decide from there which one you'd like best. For me I like to spend more money on pieces that I know I'll wea…
