How to Combat Oily Skin When Wearing Makeup

"The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper." ~ William Butler Yeats

Hey  sweetie pies! Does any one struggle with oily skin, especially when wearing makeup? If you do, trust me you are not alone. I for one struggle with oily skin especially in my T-Zone area and it drives me crazy! While some prefer a "dewy" look when wearing makeup, I am ALL about that Matte life! When combating oily skin, the first place to start is skin care. For some, oily skin is a result of large pores which can be genetic unfortunately. But do not fret, because I am going to share some skin care products to use regularly to combat oily skin as well as some products to use when wearing makeup. 

1. Skin Care: Magical Moringa by Lush Cosmetics
Ever since I bought this product I have been in LOVE! It can be tough to find a moisturizer especially one that won't leave you feeling like an oil slick. But this product is so different, when applied to the skin it has an oily consistently and dries to a matte finish. This makes it perfect for primer for the face. Plus it is made with all natural ingredients, a definite plus in my book!

2. Skin Care : Mask Magnaminty by Lush Cosmetics
This mask is awesome! With this mask, it perfect to use weekly to extract dirt and debris from your pores. Since I have started using this mask, I have noticed a difference in oil control in my T-Zone area. This mask is made with all fresh and cruelty free ingredients. Can you say Sa-Woon?!

3. Skin Care : Hydrafresh Toner by L'Oreal 
I have oily/combo skin where my T-Zone is oily while the rest of my face is normal to dry. This toner is one of my holy grails that I have used for literally over a year now. It is very inexpensive and can be found in any drugstore. This toner has helped to calm my T-zone without drying out the other areas on my face. You know how some toners make your skin feel stripped and dry? Well this toner doesn't that at all cue it's name. :)

4. Beauty : Step 1 Equalizer Mattifying Primer by Makeup Forever 
Since I prefer a matte look when wearing makeup, a mattifying primer is a must! I really like using this one and it has amazing reviews online. Makeup Forever has a lot of different primers such as the smoothing primer to help smooth and minimize large pores. 

5. Beauty : Setting Powder Matte Finishing Powder by NYX
I keep this powder on me at all times for touch-ups throughout the day if needed. If you are wearing makeup, especially for an extended period of time, you NEED a setting powder. This one is very inexpensive and can be found at stores such as WalMart and Target. Another awesome option is the translucent powder by Laura Mercier. All the Youtubers have raved about it and it has awesome reviews! It is perfect for us oily girls. (Ok that didn't sound cool AT ALL! lolz)

I hope these tips and suggestions helped! Make sure to check out these items to help combat oily skin! I know for a fact that you can sample products at Lush stores as well as get samples to take home and try out! There are a little more splurge-worthy, but like I just stated, they're totally WORTH IT! *cues Fifth Harmony* lolz

Here's to a great and oil free week!

As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie

How to Make Metallic Work for your Office Wardrobe - Twirling in Rose Gold

"To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself." ~ Soren Kierkegaard

Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Tuesday! One trend that I am loving for Spring is the metallic trend. I am spying it everywhere from shoes to clothing to accessories. I raved awhile back about my obsession with this skirt that I got from Charlotte Russe. I love it so much that I had to feature it again on here! For this particular look, I opted to for a more work appropriate ensemble. I paired it with this ruffle blouse that I got ages ago from New York and Company. Even though this piece is no longer available, I linked some ruffle blouses just as fabulous as they are affordable below.




To keep it business casual, I opted to pair it with a blazer and my fave booties. That way you are still covered but fashionable. You can totally make metallic work for the office by letting it be the focal point and pairing it with neutrals. That way you won't be going overboard, especial…
