Friday Favorites: Best of NYFW and A Makeup Haul

This was a pretty hectic week with it being fashion week and now I’m busy packing for a few days in the Dominican Republic. I wish I could take some photos there for you guys but unfortunately I don’t know any photographers there and the people going with me aren’t great at taking photos. I’m sad about that but of course I’m excited to get some sun for a few days!

I wanted to share my latest youtube video with you guys – a fashion try on haul. Let me know your thoughts! I think we have the lighting down at this point and of course, I’d love if you took the time to subscribe and like/comment.–This week Blue Mercury kindly sent over their Hydraboost Line Reducer and I’m really excited to test it out. Have any of you guys tried it out? I notice that I get lines on my forehead when putting on makeup so I’m hoping that using this will help!

Along with that, I was also able to choose some other makeup goodies and ah, it was so hard to narrow it down! I finally decided on the Nars Audacious Lipsticks because everyone raves about the formula; I tested it out in the store and fell in love. I also picked up a Dual Intensity Eyeshadow and while I wanted a whole bunch, I finally decided on Antares, a white gold, because I felt like it was something I didn’t already have in my collection.

I also got my first Hourglass highlighter; I know, I know, it’s embarrassing that I didn’t already own one so I took the opportunity to pick one up. I got the Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder in Euphoric and I also want their regular Ambient Lighting Powder as well! And lastly, I picked up Hourglass’s Veil Mineral Primer because it’s amazing; I’ve used it before in a travel size and loved it.
One of my favorite shows from NYFW was Anniesa Hasibuan. This was the second show of hers I attended and it was just as breathtakingly beautiful as the first. I love seeing modest fashion on the runway! Anniesa shows that modesty can be high fashion and gorgeous which is important; modesty often gets a bad rap for being dowdy and old fashioned so it’s amazing to experience a show like this one.
