Holiday Beauty Drugstore Beauty Haul

Polish / Mascara / Liquid Eye Liner / High Definition Undereye Setting Powder / Mascara & Shadow Shield

I couldn’t be more impressed with my latest drugstore beauty haul. Pregnancy makes my already fast growing nails, grow 10x faster. Painting my nails is the best option for me, since they grow out so quickly. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure has been a game changer. It applies better than any polish (at any price range) I have ever tried, and gives the look of a gel manicure. It pairs perfectly with my go-to top coat for speed drying and full shine.

  

The e.l.f. High Definition Undereye Setting Powder takes my favorite concealer to the next level, by keeping it in tact all day and adding a velvety finish that helps camouflage fine lines and dark circles. I’ve been extremely surprised by how amazing this product is, especially for a $3 price tag.

L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara in Carbon Black and L’Oreal Paris Telescopic Precision Liquid Eyeliner in Carbon Black, makes a bold statement for any holiday eye look. From a statement cat eye, to a smoky eye, to a metallic sheen, each product in Carbon Black really makes lashes and eyes pop!

I came across this super convenient tool, when doing my mascara and shadow in a pinch. The e.l.f. Studio Mascara and Shadow Shield is great for avoiding mascara on your lid, and undereye, as well as accumulating shadow under your eye when applying. Another $3 find.

Style Steal Olivia’s Coat

Olivia Palermo rarely disappoints with her chic style choices. Her sleek black coordinates get a pop of color with her bright yellow peacoat from Old Navy. Get an additional 30% off the budget buy through Monday, making it under $34!

Fall Staples

 Jacket: Gap (similar)  /  Sweater: Hive & Honey  /  Denim: J Brand /  Knit Socks: Forever 21  /  Boots:  DV Dolce Vita  /  Handbag: Louis Vuitton  /  Rings: David Yurman & Vintage  /  Watch: Michael Kors  /  Nails: Julep Alma (Trina Turk Fall 2012 Collection)

These boots were a TJ Maxx find. I’ve worn them all Summer, and they’ve been my go-to shoe this Fall. They’re a year-round staple in my closet. I’m such an ankle boots girl. I have so many similar pairs, but these are my favorite. I love the ankle length height.

This jacket was a steal on the clearance rack at Gap. I spotted the find this Spring, for $35 down from it’s $170 price tag. The removable faux fur lining & collar make this jacket so versatile.

Breaking the Rules

J.Crew Factory is one of my favorite spots for seasonal staples, and loads of color at great prices. I had the opportunity of hosting a styling event last night at my local J.Crew Factory store, explaining “breaking the rules,” mastering some of the trickiest fashion trends, and expanding your closet by doing so.

A chambray shirt and pencil skirt were two must-have staples I discussed to expand your wardrobe. I did a 101 session in pairing colored denim & trousers for all occasions, as well as how to mix prints tastefully. I had so much fun styling twelve looks showing how to wear each from the office, to the weekend, to a night out.

The launch of the new J.Crew Factory website, makes shopping easily accessible.

After the style session, it was time to shop. My mom & friend, Debbie did a great job styling color blocked looks.

How cute is this Crewcuts look? They have the most adorable kids clothes!

Minty shades make a statement.

Pointed toe & a bow.

There are endless possibilities with the polka dot printed top.

  The J.Crew staff made the experience really laid back and fun. They were so great. I loved discussing style pairings and personal shopping with everyone. Thanks to everyone who came!
