Valentine's Romance | LMHC x Tobi

Dress (℅): Tobi // Earrings (℅): Sugarfix by Baublebar // Bag: Stella McCartney // Shoes: LC Lauren Conrad // Bracelet: Kiel James Patrick // Full Makeup Details on my Instagram

Come Valentine's Day, I always love the feeling of getting dressed up and feeling gorgeous.  This year I'm wearing this gorgeous burgundy lace number from Tobi, one of my favorite online retailers for inexpensive, on-trend pieces.  The "Leila" Lace Scalloped Dress made me feel so special when I put it on, and I have to admit, I felt pretty self-conscious looking at this dress on the hanger.  The plunging neckline scared the heck out of me, as I'm pretty small chested, but once it was on and I was looking in the mirror and getting my jush, I felt that self-consciousness melt away and I felt so pretty.  
Happy Valentine's week!  Spend Wednesday with someone you love, even if that someone happens to be yourself.  

Thank you to Tobi for partnering on this post.  

Bourgogne | LMHC x Tobi

 Sweater (℅): Tobi // Jeans: Rag & Bone {altered} // Shoes: Old Navy // Bag: Stella McCartney // Earrings (℅): Sugarfix by BaubleBar // Full Makeup Details on my Instagram

I don't care what Pantone says, my color of the year (and of the season) is rich, deep wine red and burgundy.  Hence why I named this post burgundy in French.  I particularly love implementing this color in a good burgundy sweater, and this "The Chills" sweater by Tobi is something I've literally been wearing twice a week, if not more often.  It is so cozy and warm, but the off-the-shoulder style and slouchy fit make it perfectly on trend.  Pair it with some bomb booties and it's a full on look.

Thank you to Tobi for partnering on this post.

A Thousand Stars | LMHC x Tobi

Dress (℅)Tobi  // Earrings (℅)Sugarfix by Baublebar // Bag: Stella McCartney // Shoes: Old Navy // Full Makeup Details on my Instagram

I absolutely love wrap dresses because of the comfort and ease they afford, but this star-printed one is absolutely gorgeous and flattering on everyone.  This dress is the "A Thousand Stars" dress by Tobi, and I've been wearing it non-stop to classes and my internship.  It's the perfect bridge between trendy and classy that I've been needing in my closet lately, and this dress 100% delivers.  I paired it with some other celestial accessories just for fun.

Makeup I'm Using Update | Beauty Favorites 2017

Last week's video on my beauty Youtube channel was my Ride or Die tag, where I listed all my favorite ride-or-die, can't-live-without makeup products.  I know the majority of you who read my blog don't also watch my beauty channel (but if you're interested, please check it out!)  Therefore, I was really inspired to bring my favorite makeup products to the blog in the form of a Makeup I'm Using Right Now post.  

My taste in beauty, as well as my makeup skills have evolved, and I've found so many products that I love with all my heart.  These, in my opinion, are some of the best makeup products on the market.  ALL are cruelty free- I would never use or buy anything else.  Also, I've finally worked up the courage to start posting my makeup looks on my Instagram instead of just my outfits.  I'm not sure what I'm really doing, but I know that I love sharing the art that I spend time on.  Makeup artistry is really a form of self expression and I love putting my makeup looks out there.  

I tried to arrange this post according to people's different makeup tastes.  There's warm tones, naturals, edgy, and even just a little bit of everything.  Without further ado, here's my favorites right now.  

Anastasia Beverly Hills Palettes | Subculture // Modern Renaissance // Master Palette by Mario

Anastastia Beverly Hills palettes are, in my opinion, the best of the best.  Modern Renaissance is the warm tone lover's dream, with a mix of neutrals, rosey pinks, and burnt oranges, all with one of the best formulas on the market.  The pink velvet outer is particularly stunning!

Subculture is its sister palette.  The formula sparked some controversy as it's a little harder to work with compared to the Modern Renaissance.  I'd say its more formulated for pro makeup artists.  Personally I love it- the pigmentation is superb and I was able to handle it without any problems.

Their Master Palette by Mario is from last year and it's such a gorgeous neutral palette.  Created in collaboration with Kim Kardashian's makeup artist, this is one of my holy grails.  When I want a simple but perfect look, this is my favorite.  

Warm Toned Beauties | Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes // Anastasia Modern Renaissance // Marc Jacobs Scandalust // Anastasia Nicole Glow Kit

My personal favorite type of color scheme is warm tones.  I cannot get enough of them.  The Modern Renaissance falls under this category once again- like I said, its versatility is what makes it one of my favorites.  

The newest release is the Too Faced Just Peachy Matte palette.  I like matte shadows and the color scheme of this one is stunning.  Beautiful burgundy shades mixed with peach transitions, and the formula is super pigmented and smells like peaches.  

Marc Jacobs Scandalust is a really gorgeous luxury option.  It's pretty pricey, but in my opinion, the formula has beautiful color payoff that makes this palette worth the splurge.  I also love this Anastasia glow kit filled with stunning pink highlighters created by Nicole Guerriero.  

These are some of my favorite products ever.  I did a full video talking about my Ride or Die makeup, and these were the standouts.  I love the Morphe Jaclyn Hill palette so much- all the colors I could possibly need are in there.  The new Fenty Beauty foundation created by Rihanna herself is also amazing.  

If it's a more natural, understated look you crave, these products are my favorite nudes and naturals.  The Carli Bybel BH palette is absolutely stunning and has face shades in there too.  I also included my two favorite nude lip products from Anastasia and Kylie Cosmetics.  

What are your makeup favorites?  Let me know in the comments.

Trench Cape & Scalloped Pants // Redone Classics

Trench Cape (): Banana Republic // Pants (): Banana Republic // Bag: Stella McCartney // Shoes: LC Lauren Conrad // Watch (): VOTCH // Bracelet (℅)Kristine Lily // Full Makeup Details on my Instagram

It is finally shifting out of the heat wave that is a California summer, and this week was the first with temperatures below 85 in Southern California.  I'm so ready for fall, and so, it seems, is the fashion scene.  Today I'm teamed up with Banana Republic to bring you the perfect look to transition into fall.

First off, I seriously can't believe I'm collaborating with a brand like Banana Republic here on my little blog.  This is seriously a dream come true and I had such a fun time working on this project.  Banana Republic's new fall collection is seriously stunning, and these pieces I'm wearing today are my favorites.  I wanted to put together a look that reinvented classics like the camel trench and skinny navy pants, and these two pieces really did that for me.

This trench cape is everything: the perfect combination of a standard wardrobe staple and a high fashion piece, and wearing it made me feel so chic.  I paired it with these skinny navy legging pants with the most gorgeous scalloped hem.  I personally love the look of long, tailored skinny pants with a great pair of heels.  This look is such a go-to and I've already worn it to class a few times!

I've started posting my makeup looks on Instagram: something I've been nervous to do for a while but I finally decided to take the plunge and just do it.  I run a beauty Youtube channel and I'm a self-taught makeup artist, so I've been wanting to share my looks on social media for a while.  In this one I stuck with the classic theme and did a gold and neutral eye look with a classic dusty mauve lip.  Full details are going to be on my Instagram if you want to know what I used.  

What are your go-to fall transition looks?  

Thank you to Banana Republic for partnering on this post.
