A little rusty/What's in my makeup bag

I've been seeing a lot of rust colored things lately and loving them. I don't have too much of the color in my wardrobe, and now I have even less because I lost one of these earrings today.

This shot is my absolute favorite. I even love how my split ends look, and I really need a hair cut.

This leopard beret has clearly become my favorite hat (apologies, white beret and sequin beret).

Don't be mislead by this bright sunshine and happy bokeh. It's bitterly cold out still. Um Phil, when you said early spring, exactly how early did you mean?

I got a tag to spill my makeup bag, so here is what is inside. Nothing too crazy, since I'm a big fan of the five minute face. Nothing too expensive either. Almost all my makeup is from Avon.
In my makeup bag

1. mark Matte-Nificent Oil-Absorbing Powder
2. mark Kabuki Brush
3. mark Good Glowing Powder Blush in After Glo
mark Eye Shadow in Goia and Glitterati 
4. Blotting Sheets
5. mark Get in Line Liquid Waterproof Eyeliner in Painted Black
mark Glow Baby Glow Lip Gloss in Sizzle
6. All Over Shadow Brush
7. Origins Eye Shadow in Lotus Flower

I do have a few other eye and lip colors to play around with, but this is just my basic go-to stuff. I also have Urban Decay's Eye Shadow Primer Potion, which I 'll use when I'm doing more than just a quick swipe of eyeliner; and a ton of nail polish. 


  1. Hahaha you leopard tweezers are too awesome. I'm bet its best friends with your ~jealous~ leopard beret. :D

    Your hair in a braid is so cute. :D and and I love the white over your red. I want to raid your closet k.

  2. It does at least look more like spring in your pictures! Even seeing sunshine is a step closer, right?

    Your hair is so pretty braided like that and wow, it's so long!

  3. I love the braided hair and the little leopard hat - the whole look is wonderful. And I adore the leopard tweezers, I wish my tweezers were that stylish!

  16. So sad you lost an earring, but I hope you know that you have been killing it this week. I've pretty much adored each outfit even more every day. And if you're ever inclined to make any more of those skirts and sell them please let me know, I'll take like five of them!

  17. Gorgeous outfit :) Sad about the earrings :(


  18. luv luv luv your cardigan and beret ... I just can't seem to do a hat/beret justice!

    Hope it warms up real soon ... if I could, I'd send you some warmth!

  19. Amazing look dear! You look stunning! <3

  20. I love the red with the leopard. Hope you find your earring, sometimes they just turn up in the bottom of a bag or in the dryer.
    That Rimmel nail polish is amazing, I'm wearing it in Hot Cocoa!

  21. I don't wear make up (except lipgloss, does that count?) unless it's a special occasion. That might change with me heading into the city for work... it's so intimidating everyone is so perfect looking! That being said I still have a tonnnn of makeup, mostly from elf so cheap stuff too :)

  22. The way you put colors together in this outfit is very inspiring to me !
    I love your grey nail polish too !

  23. I am really loving the fishtail braid! I need to find a good tute on how to do it!


  24. oh i love the rimmel nail polish!! steel grey is one of my fave colors. and i've never gotten into Avon cosmetics, but you've definitely given me some products i wanna try now!

    cute and little

  25. The leopard beret is a hit, animal print always makes me happy! You look so cute!

    ps. I have never tried Mark, but that lipstick color is so pretty!

  26. Gorgeous look!
    Love your braid!


  27. You look really really cute! Love the beret and the red dress!<3

  34. I LOVE this look!!! The leopard beret really finishes this look perfectly!


  35. Your braid is amazing!! I've never been able to wear braids and seeing your hair makes me wish I could...

    And I LOVE those tights! They add a fun pattern to the outfit.

  36. I also love that photo of your braid! It is indeed a happy sunshiney bokeh and makes me wish the weather forecast matched the mood of these photos! It's still so cold out! (But warmer here in Michigan this last weekend!)

  37. I love the fishtail braid! I need to try that sometime, I think my hair might be long enough now.

    I have to say that your make up back looks SO organized and CLEAN!! Mine look like they have expired....

  40. You look so pretty, I love the cardigan and the necklace from Etsy.

    The Steel Gray Rimmel nail lacquer is such a pretty hue.
