Pretty AND Protected!!!! (wear makeup & SPF, you don’t have to choose)

10 Jul

I am INSANE about skin protection and wear SPF 50 year round and 110 during the sunny months. I wear it alone and with my makeup as well. Most days I don’t wear makeup, but when I do I have perfected a routine that allows me to protect my skin, wear a full face of makeup AND reapply SPF throughout the day if necessary. The key to ultimate sun protection is to apply SPF under and over your makeup! YES this is easy and possible, I will list my routine below with product links. *Let this also be a reminder that the SUN IS ENEMY #1 when it comes to your skin aging, the sun “cooks” your skin- it’s as simple as that. Even in small doses, it adds up. Be mindful when you’re in the sun and get into an SPF routine NOW if you haven’t already and buy some cute hats & sunglasses while you’re at it.  Protect your skin at all costs or it will cost you…..best case scenario- you will have crows feet and leathery skin way too early. Worst case scenario- skin cancer. Love the skin you’re in :) nf It’s never too late. Get started now, let me show you how! (My personal SPF & makeup routine, step by step) 1. Apply SPF on clean skin. I use Neutrogena SPF 110. 2. Let it soak in for 5 minutes. I walk away, brush my teeth, pet the dog….whatevs. 3.Apply face makeup. My full makeup consists of BB Cream and Bare Minerals powder foundation, followed by highlight, contour, eye makeup, blush etc. 4. Once makeup is gorge and “done” apply SPF powder ON TOP of everything. Bare Minerals has a translucent powder called Mineral veil- it basically locks in your makeup and it almost creates an air brushed look to the skin. Why is this last step so unique? Mineral veil is available with SPF 25, so it is adding an extra layer of protection. This also allows you to reapply SPF throughout the day by dusting some powder on.  Mineral veil comes in original for fair to medium skin tones and tinted for medium to dark skin tones. I have both and mix them for a gorgeous shade. There is No need to go and throw out your current makeup/foundation. Any makeup works as the FIRST and LAST steps include SPF.  This has been working wonders for me and I hope it can help you too.

I’m Wearing Shorts!!!!

16 Jun

I’m wearing shorts!!!!! I never wear shorts besides cutoffs on a beach day- I have just never been into shorts, but I found the cutest pair of flowy belted shorts recently and can’t stop wearing them…..   I’ve been getting a lot of questions about this outfit since I shared it on Instagram a few days back.The look pictured below was so easy breezy to put together but looked amazing! I will link all of the information below. I am a total skinny jeans or dress kind of girl, so I am pretty proud of myself for stepping outside of the box and wearing shorts. I’m actually looking forward to finding more shorts for Summer! I love shorts!

Cute Summer Sandals Under $25!

9 Jun

Hey guys, I scored on these cute sandals at Old Navy this past weekend and had to share!  First of all, they are beyond cute, second of all they are COMFORTABLE, lastly they are $24.95! Perfect in every way!  After some researching, I noticed they sell the brown and fuchsia online BUT they also had pale pink and black in stores. I saw pale pink and black at 2 separate locations, so if you want either of those colors, you’re going to have to hop in the car! So worth it though! Here is a link to the brown and fuchsia(which they are calling plum). Hope you find the color for you :) If you check out my Instagram @yourstylejourney, you will see me rockin’ the pale pink color today!

Spring Must Have: Pink Coat (On any budget)

3 Mar

Let’s face it, you’re either a pink girl or not! If you’re a pink girl, as I am, then this coat is for you! I’ve been eyeing pink coats for about a year now but I had more “important” colors on my coat list. Yes I actually have lists for things that I want- I literally want something new every day so they must be prioritized!  This is a great way to avoid impulse buys and also helps me figure out just how much I want something. After searching, I eventually found the Navy and camel coats that were at the top of my list which left me still wanting a pretty pink coat. I found a really cute one that was super affordable and I love it! I will be wearing it year round, specifically through Spring and Summer. Check out these pink coats below.
