SENIOR PROM! | PICTURES & MAKEUP DETAILS

Saturday, April 16, 2016



Hey guys! Friday night was my senior prom, and I thought I'd share the pictures with you guys, as well as what I did with my makeup. I decided not to vlog because I just wanted to enjoy the whole day and live in the moment. I'm so sad this is my last prom... but I'm also so excited for everything the future holds. Prom, graduation, summer, college... so much is happening in the upcoming months! Ahhhh

Senior prom was amazing! Since I am homeschooled, it's a little different, but not much! lol
When Hayden and I started dating (and I mean the first day we made it official) he asked me when my prom was and if I would wear sneakers. I said of course! (along as they had glitter on them) Hayden is really into collecting sneakers, so it's something special to him I wanted to do! 

When I was little, I  always wanted to wear a "princess dress" to prom and in past years I've always gone super simple and sleek- so this year I wanted to do something different, romantic and feminine. The dress I decided on was a tulle dress with light blue and pink floral, and it made me feel so girly and elegant. My glitter sneakers are Kate Spade by Keds. Hayden wore matching blue pants with a grey jacket, pink gingham bowtie (so Chuck Bass I can't even ahhh) and white sneakers.

Megan, who also has a beauty channel, did my hair and she was amazing! Check her out here! We decided to do a soft fishtail braid and added extensions for extra thickness. 

The night was so much fun! I couldn't ask for a better date haha
Keep scrolling for makeup details and more pictutres- big thank you to my friend Kathryn for taking amazing pictures! You're the best <3



For my makeup, I wanted it to be girly and glam, but not distract from my dress. I did a soft pink toned eye, with winged liner and fluttery lashes, glowy pink cheeks and a soft berry lip.

MY BROW ROUTINE

Friday, March 18, 2016


Brows, brows, brows... it's all about the brows these days. I haven't done a brow video in forever so I thought it was time for an updated one! Watch the video below to see how I fill in my eyebrows step-by-step!




Products Used


Step 1:
Comb through the brow with a spoulie (brow brush) to tame any crazy brow hairs and see what shape you're going to be working with

Step 2: 
Outline and define the shape of the brow with the pencil. Flick the pencil upward towards the front of the brow to create a "real hair" look

Step 3:
Fill in the brow with powder. Use the lighter shade in the front of the brow, and the darker shade towards the tail

Step 4:
Set the brows with brow gel


Thanks for watching! I hope this video helped you out with your brows!

FULL DAY OF EATING #1

Thursday, March 17, 2016


Hey guys! I finally did a full day of eating video! I try to follow a pretty healthy diet- diet meaning "way of eating" not fad die- and healthy is different for everybody. On a daily basis like to eat mostly natural whole foods, but I do eat some processed things like protein bars, chocolate chips and cool whip ;) I'm currently just eating to maintain my weight, and focus on fueling my body right to perform in the gym. No extremes, just healthy and balanced. I'm currently eating vegetarian for lent, so all the meals in today's video happen to be vegetarian friendly! And my dinner is actually vegan. All macros and nutritional info are included in the video. Enjoy!


Thanks for watching! What are some of your favorite meals?
Xoxo,

My Favorite Breakfast | Egg & Avocado Toast

Tuesday, March 15, 2016



Hey guys! Today I'm going to show you how to make one of my all time favorite breakfasts- egg & avocado toast. I'm sure you've seen a ton of egg & avocado that pics on Instagram, so this may be nothing new- but I wanted to show you my take on it! It's such a good balanced breakfast because it contains complex carbs from the whole grain toast (I use Ezekiel bread, which is minimally processed), protein from the eggs, and healthy fats from the avocado (and the egg yolks!) Not to mention, it's full of flavor! I think my secret is in the spices... I crave this combo so much that I literally don't go more than a few days without it. It combines a lot of my favorite foods: avocado, serrate and runny eggs. Yum. Wanna see how to make it? Keep on reading! 




Egg & Avocado Toast 
(serves 1)

INGREDIENTS
2 pieces of whole grain bread 
1/2 an avocado
2 eggs (or egg whites)
pink sea salt
pepper
cumin

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Heat a pan sprayed with a little non-stick spray, or use a drop of coconut oil
2. Crack the eggs into the pan. (I used 1 whole egg and 2 egg whites)
3. While the eggs are cooking, toast the bread.
4. When the bread is toasted, mash the avocado with a fork and spread on each piece of toast.
5. Add sea salt, pepper, and a sprinkle of cumin.
6. Drizzle with sriracha (if you like it spicy!)
7. When the eggs are done cooking (I like my yolk runny, so much more flavor and toast dipping..) place on top of the mashed avocado toast and enjoy!



MY TOP 10 MAKEUP TIPS FOR GLASSES

Sunday, March 13, 2016


Hey guys! Today I have some tips for my gals that wear glasses. I was not born with great eyesight, so I wear contacts everyday. But there are a lot days that I just want to wear my glasses. (I'm sorry my frames are so old, I don't know where they are from, but my favorite brand I've been crushing on is Warby Parker. They're pretty affordable and give back to an amazing cause!) When I wear glasses, there are a few tweaks I make to my makeup, and they're actually super simple. Here's my top 10 makeup tips for glasses:


1. Let Your Frames Do the Talking
 When your wearing glasses, the frames already bring attention to your eyes so you don't need as much eye makeup! That being said, you don't have to skip dramatic eye makeup either. It just takes less makeup to draw attention to your eyes! So save your self some time and maybe throw on a bold lip! 


2. Brows Are Still Just as Important!
Your glasses frame your eyes, but your eyebrows frame your glasses. Make sure your brows are defined and neat! I like to use my Kevyn Aucoin precision brow pencil for definition, and set them in place with my NARS tinted brow gel.


3. Match Your Eye-Makeup Drama to the Size of the Frames
The bigger the frame, the more room you have to work with! If you have big frames, try a smokey eye.  The Jouer shadow crayons make a super simple & quick smokey eye. If your frames are smaller, sometimes keeping it simple will be more flattering.


4. Avoid Losing Your Foundation on the Sides of Your Nose
Start with a primer to keep your foundation from slipping. Finish with powder around your nose to keep your frames from rubbing off all your foundation! Trust me, I've been there - taking off your glasses and you have to big spots on the sides of your nose. Not the best look. lol


5. No Falsies 
Fake lashes will just be too long and hit the front of your frames. If you want your lashes to pop just add an extra coat of mascara.


6. Bold Lips = Instant Chic
I love the look of just mascara, glasses, and a killer bold lip. Try a red, pink, or dark plum to have an instant pulled together look. I love this look when I want to wear my glasses to work, but still look professional and trendy. Shop some bold lips here!


7. Tired AF? Glasses are your BFF.
Whenever I'm super tired or my eyes just don't feel like a lot makeup, glasses can instantly distract from the tired eye look.


8. Highlight those Cheekbones!
Usually the frame of the glasses will hit right above the cheekbone. Help them stand out by highlighting them. I recommend using a powder instead of a cream, incase your glasses slide around. (powder usually lasts better than cream.) I love the Becca Pressed Shimmering Skin Perfecters.


9. Blush Placement is Key.
Too much blush in the wrong spot while wearing glasses can look kinda odd. Just like with eye makeup, it depends on the size of your frames. My frames are really large so I keep my blush a little lower on the apple and the blended up and back, avoiding the tips of the frame. If you have smaller lenses, you can keep the blush a little higher.


10. Don't Overthink the "Rules"
Lastly, when it comes to makeup, sometimes the rules are meant to be broken. So take my tips, and tweak them to your own style! Go have fun and try something new!


I hope this was helpful for you guys, and showed you that you can still look put together with your glasses on! Let me know if you try out any of these tips!
XoXo,
Steph
