Closet Treasures

I’ve been getting some good use out of my Forever 21 teddy coat I got last year. It’s still one of my favs, and I will forever be a fan of anything this soft and cozy. The majority of this look is a collection of my favorite thrifted finds from last year. One special piece in particular is my orange scarf that I found at a thrift shop in Barcelona! It’s been in my drawer and I haven’t used it too much so it’s been tied on my purse for the last couple weeks. I still haven’t edited our video from our trip there! I need to get on that so I can share all the beautiful places we got to see with you all. Stay tuned for that 🙂 My band tee and cropped jeans are also thrifted. I was stoked to find a pair of light washed Levis that actually fit me right. My navy blue hat is another one of my Sterkowski caps. If you haven’t seen my previous hat post, check it out! Sterkowski handcrafts the coolest and most unique hats and caps from Poland. They have such a wide variety of styles, colors, and fabrics. I’ve been having a lot of fun styling all the different ones I got last year! You can find all their products here: Sterkowski Hats. My boots are by Wild Diva and my rings are some old favorites that have been in my jewelry box awhile. I’ve been having fun pulling out old pieces from my closet and putting together different looks. Sometimes when I get the itch to go shopping for something new, I’ll go through my closet instead and try and get creative with those forgotten pieces. Go and try it, it’s super fun. Thanks for stopping by friends and enjoy this next month of winter!

My Makeup Brush Set- Wooden Brushes

Happy New Year everyone! I’m pretty excited about this year and am definitely anticipating a lot of joy, family, travel adventures, and fun. Welcome to my first blog post of the year! I received this brush set from My Makeup Brush Set and thought it would be fun to do a date night look to test them out. These brushes are really soft! There’s a mixture of synthetic and natural hair bristles, and every brush you need to do any kind of makeup look. As a makeup artist it’s always nice having multiple brushes on hand. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the majority of the brushes! I did have a couple of the eyeshadow brushes shed a couple bristles, but they applied the shadow evenly and I was able to buff in the pigment nicely. If you’re in need of some new brushes and are on a budget, I recommend giving them a try. This 32 piece brush set with the case is just under $30 which is a pretty great deal! There’s a huge variety of shadow brushes, smudge brushes and powder brushes, and it includes a brow comb, lip brushes, and two fan brushes. For this look I used the IT CC Cream for my foundation, a Too Faced bronzer, the Becca Champagne Pop highlighter, the Tarteist Lip Paint in Birthday Suit, a Dior eyeshadow palette called Embrace, the black Stila Liquid Eyeliner, and the Dior It Lash mascara. It’s been awhile since I’ve done a full face of makeup! I’ve been really into more natural and quick makeup looks, but it was fun to dig into all my products. If you all enjoy makeup posts, let me know and I’ll do some more of them this year! Much love to all reading this and thanks for the support. Be blessed this year! -Love, Kari
