4 Must Have Makeup Palettes

Happy Makeup Monday! I hope that your liner is winged to the gods and your lipstick is on point. Today I am sharing my four favorite makeup palettes that I can’t live without! They are perfect for fall and have a multi-purpose use!

  1. The Kay Von D Alchemist Highlight Pallet. This pallet is an intense highlighting one, but it is the perfect inner corner highlight for the eyes! It makes you look like your eyes are glowing.
  2. The Urban Decay Naked Heat Pallet. I’m sure that you have heard of this bad boy before, especially if you are a makeup lover like myself. This gorgeous pallet has all of the warm tone shadows that you will ever need for fall. It is seriously the best!
  3. The Morphe X Kathleen Lights Eyeshadow Pallet. This little baby is a dream come true. It has a nice mix between cool and warm tone shadows. So many different looks can be created with this pallet.
  4. The Tartelette in the Bloom Pallet. This little guy is your perfect everyday eyeshadow pallet, but if you have dark hair like me, a couple of these shades can double as eyebrow powders. I love a twofer!

You can never have enough makeup palettes!

Let me know if you would like to read a part two! I would be happy to post it for another Makeup Monday!! Let me know if you have any of these and which ones are your favs!

Today’s Look

Hello my precious little sunflower! I hope that you are doing AMAZING on this fine day. Today I have a “Look of the Day” for you and I think that this is one of my favorite pieces from Charlotte Russe. I also have a picture for you of my before and after makeup look. It’s a pretty simple look and I ended up changing the lip to a darker color. So, if you would like to see my look for the day, keep scrolling down! 

Ahhhhhh….. Makeup, my favorite part of any day, I don’t know what it is. I could be having the worst day ever, but when I play with makeup, it all goes away. I have for sure come along way from when I first started playing with this junk.

Here is a before and after picture, what a difference a little bit of makeup and some eyelashes can do. Although I wasn’t feeling any eyeshadow, I think that this look turned out pretty darn good. Didn’t want to go too over the top in 100 degree weather. You feel me?

With that being said, You know that I had to rock the up do. I found a really simple way to style an up do, without just wearing a simple bun. My Hunny thinks that buns are ugly and my aunt thinks that they are lazy. So this is what I found, I will find the tutorial and link it here for you. Now on To the real reason that you are here, my dress. If you have read a couple of my previous posts, you could guess where this dress came from. For those of you that are just joining me for the first time, welcome, my name is Kelsey. I have seem to of lost my train of thought, oh yea, my dress! Two words, Charlotte Russe. The obsession with this store is real. Can’t seem to move on. 

I bought this dress for a wedding that I coordinated a couple of months ago. This was when I first really started stepping out of my comfort zone in the fashion scenes. Best decision I have ever made, aside from saying yes to marrying the love of my life. It’s a straight style dress with a beautiful pattern. It’s classy, cute AND comfortable! Triple threat, right? I love to find clothes that I look and feel amazing in. It’s one thing to look good, but to be able to relax and enjoy yourself? Mind blowing, really. I was able to look presentable and run around to make sure that bride and groom had the best day ever! This dress would be great for any occasion really; date night, church, wedding, BBQ, you name it! 

This dress has a couple of different patterns in it, but the way that they compliment each other, is un real. This dress can be paired a couple of ways. It can be styled like it is here; fancy up do, bling and heels. It can also be styled with some cute sandals and your hair down with a headband. Depends on the event and how I am feeling that day. 

Today I am feeling fancy! 

Here is a little behind the scenes picture of my photographer! She is pretty awesome, make sure and check her blog out. Kailynne’s Kaptures is her photography blog, she is pretty new to the blogging world.  If you check out her site, make sure and let her know that I sent you. This photo was captured by Kylie! She is also new to blogging, feel free to give them both some pointers. I’m sure that they would love some feedback.
