looks from the weekend (fotd, ootd, notd)

It was such a beautiful weekend here. I worked Sunday morning, but afterwards I managed to get a bit of shopping in (I'll share my purchases with you soon, of course, although you may be able to guess a few from this post!). You might notice I'm wearing different outfits in the FOTD pics, but it was the same day - I was just being indecisive!

I'm also making the photos larger than I usually do - for some reason they were looking really grainy otherwise!  Anyways, onto the pics...

FACE: Clinique Moisture Surge tinted moisturizer, MAC Get-Away Bronze blush, YSL Metallic Colorama face highlighter

EYES: MAC Amber Lights e/s, Glamour Check e/s, and Sand & Sun e/s; MAC On the Hunt superslick liner; Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Lucky and El Dorado; UD 24/7 shadow pencil in Sin (inner corners); MAC Lingering brow pencil; Lancome Hypnose Drama mascara; Clinique Bottom Lash mascara

LIPS: MAC Playing Koi lipstick

NAILS: MAC Mischievious Mint 


JEANS: INC (Macy's)

DRESS: Forever21 (wearing Gap tank underneath)
BAG: Old Navy

MAC Candy Yum Yum lipstick - otherwise looking a mess!

Alright, lovelies, see you soon - thanks for reading!

<3 Jess


  1. Loving these looks! Great outfits and your make up is done flawlessly. Loving the MAC Mint nail lacquer and the MAC YUm YUm lipstick, seriously adding these to my shopping list xx :o)

  2. Love your dress! Great post :)

  3. OOh quite cute collection indeed looks quite cute! Love your outfit, especially the one with the Old Navy bag you look stunning. Great post, can't wait to see your haul xx

  4. OMG, how amazing is that nail polish? What's your favorite mint nail polish? I'm definitely getting one after P10P. Also, I love that H&M top on you!

  5. LOVE that nail polish! I'm happy I caved and ordered Playing Koi even though everyone seems to say it's difficult to work with. It looks so good on you I'm dying to try it out!

  7. You look so fresh and springy! You are definitely able to pull off some of those "impossible" lipstick shades! Jealous!

    I'm a new follower :)

  9. I always love you choice in lipstick shades. Always. And, I love your new hair color! :) xxx

  10. I love this MAC lipstick i have to try out this color. Nice post

    Check out my blog sometimes

  11. Hey, I noticed in one of your old posts you have the Paul & Joe eye color palette in Paper Moon. I'm thinking of getting one. How do you like it? Is it shimmery, pigmented, etc?

  12. Love the dress, nail polish and lip gloss. Great post.

    I've just given you the Versatile Blogger Award over on my blog.

  13. Thanks ladies!

    Tiffany - I've been obsessed with mint polish for ages! I love Essie Mint Candy Apple, Revlon Minted, Illamasqua Milf, but this MAC one is amazing - I'm loving it!!

    Jessica - I think it's worth the effort!

    Tania - I think I was mostly suckered into the Paul & Joe shadow palette for the packaging. I've only used it once. I felt the colors were on the sheer, glittery side, and I found it challenging to get my brush into each color separately. To be honest, I wouldn't recommend it!

  14. Ohmygosh! You are so cute :$
    I feel the need to state everything I love in this post: the lipstick, the blush, the nailpolish, your top, the dress & that blue bag you're wearing with it <3


  15. Your cheek bones look lush and i love the feather dress xx

  16. This is my first time on your blog and I've got to say...you are absolutely GORGEOUS! Your skin is *so* radiant and oh-so beautiful! YOU are beautiful...@__@ Wow!

  17. Wow, what a compliment! Thank you! I always think it's kind of funny to get skin compliments, because what I see in the mirror when the makeup's off are acne scars, redness, and pimples! Makeup is like magic! haha
