Style 101 : How to Use your Makeup as an Accessory or Foundation

"Most of the shadows of this life are caused by our standing in our own sunshine." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Hey sweetie pies! I hope you all had a great week! For today's post, I want to share how you can use your makeup to amp up your outfit! Makeup seems to be taking the world by storm. Especially with the cosmetics industry working around the clock to bring hot, new and improved products constantly. If you are a real and true makeup junkie or just wear a touch of lip color for just special occasion, you can use makeup as an accessory or foundation for an outfit.

Got a bold lip color but have no idea what to wear with it? Use that color as a foundation to create a color palette around your outfit. I started with True Brown K from Kylie Jenner's LipKit. I personally like this dark unique color.

I love the soft pink neutral eye look which inspired this outfit. The blush or rose quartz here looks beautiful. Due to the soft pinks and neutrals found in this eye makeup, I wanted to incorporate that into other aspects of the look. With a dash of serenity and some neon colors, this look definitely offers an unexpected edge.

For the final look, I opted for a more dramatic makeup look. Since the makeup is very bold, I opted to keep the rest of the outfit simple and minimal. Here I treated the lipstick as an accessory and added a pair of matching pumps to help bring out that red. By doing this, I add a fun pop of color.

I hope this inspires you at styling your makeup differently. Start small and work your way from there. It can be a lot more fun that you think. 

Whatever you're doing this weekend, have fun and be safe!

As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie

As some of you may know I suffer from eczema. I first noticed I had eczema as a child and was able to keep it pretty much under control. Within the past 2-3 years it has begun to rear it's ugly head again. With all of the smog, the sweating, the heat, the stress, the fragrances and a number of other factors - it has ignited my eczema to where it is hard to use a lot of my favorite things. One of which is perfume. I love smelling good plus it helps to lift my mood. I usually prefer to spray it on my wrist and behind my ears but had to stop doing that. I then resulted to misting it on my clothes but that still would irritate my…

One trend that I have been obsessing over lately is the straw bag. You have probably seen this trend on your IG feed or through Pinterest. At first sight, I didn't think I would like this trend. The idea of straw itself made me itch lolz. But this once frumpy and overlooked handbag has been upgraded and I don't hate it! Whether you are in need of a crossbody or an evening bag, there are stylish straw options. Check out my top suggestions below!

I did a bit of searching and these are the ones that stood out to me the most. I l…
