Good morning fellow beauty bandits! I’m sure you’ve noticed the latest blog changes. We’ll be focusing on recreating the looks we love! Under the style thief tab you’ll find inspired outfit/style recreations and under the beauty bandit tab you’ll find posts like these that focus on recreating makeup, hair, or anything beauty related.
Today I’m sharing a beauty look inspired by Megan Fox! I went in to the eye doctor for my yearly eye exam and decided to try out some fun colored contacts. I also remembered that Megan Fox’s new movie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, just came out so it seemed only natural to let myself be inspired by her this week.
My biggest tip for channeling your inner Fox, is to focus on the eyes. If you don’t have colored contacts, I suggest using eyeshadow colors that make your eyes pop! At the bottom of this post you’ll find a list of everything I used to recreate her look. Let me know if you have any questions!
Oh joy, the moment when you share your bare face with the internet. Lol. I’m actually pretty excited to share my makeup transformation with you. And I don’t think it’s any surprise that I don’t wake up with flawless skin, pink cheeks and shimmery eyes. Does anyone?
My daily beauty routine typically involves a BB cream (or light foundation), blush, and mascara. I like to play with different lipstick colors but most of the time I use chapstick or gloss.
BUT, my makeup routine is completely different for special occasions, parties, weddings, and certain date nights. Like a lot of girls, I try to step it up and create a much more flawless face. The challenging thing is that my problem spots are tough to cover. I have acne scars on chin, a temple scar, nose bridge scar, and dark circles that require loads of traditional concealer.
I decided to try out Dermablend because every year we all attend so many special events. And wouldn’t it be awesome if we could show up looking flawless and feeling confident? Who wants to look back on those photos and be like, “oh yea… here’s me, my new husband, and my scar at our wedding”. Lol
I only had to use two products to create a clean and immaculate base! First, I appliedQuick-Fix Concealer($25) to cover my scars, blemishes and dark circles. I followed that up with an even coverage of Intense PowderCamo($30) over my entire face (this provides buildable coverage so you can decide how much you need based on your skin). After that you can use your own blush and eyeshadow to finish off your picture perfect look!
I also want to point out how affordable these products are! They cost the same (or less) than makeup that doesn’t offer you high coverage, smudge resistant wear. Most products are also non-comedogenic, non-acnegenic, fragrance free, ophthalmologist-tested, allergy tested, and dermatologist tested
On Friday, I’ll be showing you how well Dermablend works on tattoos and I’ll give you an up-close look at scar coverage! For now, you can stop by their site and check out all of their products:www. Dermablend.com
Have a great day and I’ll see you back here for Friday’s post!

Today we are channeling an entirely different style vibe! Say hello to our style inspiration, Demi Lovato! Her look is sexy and casual. I thought it’d be perfect for a sporting event.
It can be tough to create a sexy & cute look without looking overdone for something like a basketball game. My advice is to bring the drama to your lips with a bold color and keep everything else simple. I used Rimmel London’s Moisture Renew in Diva Red.
Adding only subtle makeup to my eyes and leaving my hair straight, helped my final look to remain casual. I also had on a basic black knit dress and sneakers. I wish I could climb stadium stairs in heels but I can barely keep my balance when I walk down my slanted driveway! Haha.
I hope this post was helpful! In the comments let me know what you do to elevate a your look for a casual outing.
And also… I sort of felt like I was channeling the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. See below! Lol

Hello again! Staring next week, I’m going to try and keep my blogging schedule consistent and post on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I just started a new job so a posting schedule will hopefully help me plan better around my new work hours.
In today’s post I’m sharing a colorful and casual outfit. The geometric skirt is from Nordstrom Rack. For awhile I had trouble wearing it because it seemed so businessy, like when I wore it here. My job doesn’t require typical “office attire” so I thought I might end up giving it away. But then, I put it on and started trying on a bunch of tops and found something that worked.
Happy Monday! And hello to all my new bloglovin subscribers!
Friday I was featured on Lauren Conrad’s website and I’ve been smiling all weekend because of it. I’m excited to meet and chat with all the new visitors that stumbled onto my little blog. Please feel free to leave me your blog link in the comment section so I can stop by!
Today’s outfit, believe it or not, is another clearance find! Express has definitely impressed me with the cute pieces they have on sale. Next season I plan to hit the clearance sale early. I missed out on quite a bit because I went into the store towards the end of it.
I think this outfit is perfect for almost any warm weather special occasion. I’ve included a few links below if you’d like to try this look out yourself.
I recently tried an a new blouse style, the halter swing top! It kept me cool but also looked dressier than a basic tank top. And guess what, it only cost $10 thanks to the clearance sale Express was having.
Unfortunately, Express is all sold out of these tops but I found a few similar items you can try if you’re interested in experimenting with this look.
Is pop culture currently in the middle of a 1920′s short hair revival? Because everyone seems to be heading to the hair salon for a significant chop! The latest girl to join the celebrity haircut club is Kristen Stewart.
Anna Kendrick is pretty awesome. She seems so down to earth and I love her sense of humor! And if all that weren’t enough, she’s also gorgeous. For today’s style thief post, I decided to create a look inspired by her 2014 July Elle Cover. (more…)
Here’s the thing about crochet tops… they let you do the whole peek-a-boo stomach thing while still being very forgiving. So if you’re not ready for a crop top or something completely sheer, this is great way to show some skin. (more…)
