Week O’Nautical – Buttoned Up

What’s red and white and blue all over?  A patriotic Red White and Blue Week O’Nautical OOTD!  That kinda works right!?  Either way Week O’Nautical is sailing through this short work week as the long holiday weekend is so close I can taste it!

A Little Inspo from Emily Gemma

A Little Inspo from Emily Gemma

If you follow Emily Gemma of the Sweetest Thing Blog then you know she loves a good hat, ESPECIALLY a good Fiddler Baker Boy cap!  It was her post (see here) that had me smitten with this red and white striped hat last year.  I should of copy cat-ted her look there when Memorial Week O’Nautical was cold and rainy, but of course I thought about that after the fact.  So I decided in my head I’ll recreate this look for the 4th but now the summer heat is here and there’s no way I’m wearing jeans, but a denim button front dress I can do!  So I took her flow with the white tee and jeans and put my word on it with this Express Button Front Denim Mini Dress (now marked down to clearance!)

I love a little white dress (as seen here, here and here) and this one was a welcome addition to the LWD family.  The square neck and button front details are super on trend.  The denim material is a little easier to wear too not getting as dirty as quickly.  And white always feel perfect for summer and for Week O’Nautical.

We’ll be heading out to watch some fireworks tonight so I’ll easily switch into some slides and be good to go for a festive casual night out!  Do you have any early 4th festivities this year?  Or you saving it all for the long weekend!?

Makeup Looks To Master: Going Out

Makeup Looks To Master: Going Out

Makeup Looks To Master: Going Out

Things are going up on a Tuesday!  Well, that’s if you count the grocery store as going out… But my going-out makeup is!  Party makeup is the most fun and where you can take more risks.  I like to switch it up for the event, season, weather and just the overall vibes but having one go-to makeup look helps when you don’t have a lot of time to get ready, don’t know what you’re going to wear or exactly how the event will play out.  For the past year this has been my go-to going out makeup look.

Glittery Eyes and a Fun Lip!

Glittery Eyes and a Fun Lip!

Glittery eyes and a fun lip.  After stalking it for some time I finally used my birthday week treats to pick up the Stila Glitter and Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in Kitten Karma.  This is a pretty intense gold glitter that pretty much makes your going out makeup a party all itself.  However it is $24 a pop so when Avon released their Glimmershadows in Fools Gold I noticed it was a pretty good dupe at only $8.  In the photo below I’m wearing the Stila version with a pink lip, in these other photos I’m wearing the Avon Glimmershadow.  You can see they’re very similar and a very fun going out look!

Stila Glitter and Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in Kitten Karma

Stila Glitter and Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in Kitten Karma

A glittery liquid shadow like these are so impactful you don’t need much.  I like to start with putting some concealer on my eyelid, no need for a primer with the Avon since its so long lasting.  Then I’ll apply the glimmershadow.  I let it dry and set for maybe 30 seconds then I’ll go in with a neutral taupe shade above the crease in the transition area.  If I’m adding an outer v color then I will, like here I used a little black shadow.  I then use my favorite liquid liner Avon True Color Liquid Precise Pen and follow up with curling my lashes and mascara, Avon Love at 1st Lash in black.

When doing my go-to going out look I stick to lip shades I know I love.  A good liquid lipstick will have more staying power for a long night out of eating and drinking!  I’m wearing mark. Pout Velvet Lip Paint in Fancy.  This has been discontinued which means savings for you, its only $5.99 right now!  I did pick up a backup as this is one of my favorites, its very comfortable to wear!  On my face I started with the same primer, Magix tint and blush I used in my everyday makeup look — see here.  Only addition is I added some making setting spray at the end and I did my brows (as seen here).  Going out makeup is the perfect time to contour and highlight however I didn’t do that here… oops.

Believe me you want a glitter shadow in your arsenal!  Even if you don’t go all out a little swipe of this on a clean lid and some mascara will have you instantly party-ready!  But note, these Avon Glimmershadows are selling like hotcakes!  There are a few shades already on back order and not a whole lot of stock coming down the pipes until closer to fall, so I recommend you jump on this Fool’s Gold shade while its still available AND they’re buy one get one half off at my eBoutique!

Makeup Look To Master: The Quickie

Makeup Look To Master: The Quickie

Makeup Look To Master: The Quickie

Even if you are not a perpetually late person like me, you need to master the quickie!  From my 5 makeup looks to master the quickie is the easiest and most necessary!  Need something you can quickly do to feel good and look good. Your quickie makeup look has to be quick and easy and with no-fail products!

Easy Breezy Word of Alicia

Easy Breezy Word of Alicia

I have a few of these quickie techniques that I rotate, based on scenario and what products I have at hand… aka what’s already in my purse, what’s on top of my makeup bag if I’m home, what activity I’m doing, going to work/going to the store/etc…  For this look I went with my lashes and lips technique.

Quick and Easy Makeup

Quick and Easy Makeup

On my face I just used concealer, concentrating on under eyes, around my nose and chin.  (I’m using a discontinued one so currently on the hunt for a new one, spam me with your favorites!)  I usually keep a mini blush in my purse right now its a mini Nars Laguna Bronzer and Orgasm Blush which I swirled together and lightly applied.  For eyes it’s just lots of mascara with the Avon Love at First Lash Mascara.  I kinda apply it messy so the transfer kinda darkens the lash line like a liner would.  And then seal the deal with a bright lipstick, Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Dragonfruit.  Quick and Easy.

Messy Mascara = Prentend Liner

Messy Mascara = Prentend Liner

It’s the bright bold lip that makes this looked so finished and polished.  If I have an ounce more of time and a good mirror I’ll do my eyeliner with my Avon SuperExtend Liquid Liner Pen (see review here).  Gets me closer to my Everyday Slay look.  Nice thing about being an Avon lady is I always have those little lipstick bullets in a pocket, drawer, bag, somewhere so I can get this quick look very easily.

Lip of the Day:  Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Dragonfruit

Lip of the Day: Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Dragonfruit

This is also the technique I used for my beach makeup, only I use a waterproof mascara and wear a tinted lip balm instead of lipstick and more bronzer than blush.  But real quick my earrings are from the Julia X Avon collection which is coming back to the outlet next week so be sure to check out http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger for them and for my Avon makeup products I used in this look!  Be sure to keep following along my 5 makeup looks to master series here on the blog because all these selfies have me like…

Wear and Share Wednesday: Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is May 12th incase you were wondering. If you still need some ideas Wear and Share Wednesday has got you! Heather from Hopelessy Heather is back and ready to share with you a look at the Limted Edition Iconic Avon Collection.  I let you in on the 1967 inspiration on this Limited Collection but there’s more to the Mother’s Day Shop.

Alicia’s Picks:

Word Yo!

Word Yo!

Mother’s Day is all about appreciating the beauty in MOM.  (and I’m going to use all caps there because my Mom always writes it out that way, as that’s now she was taught — I think during her shorthand days — google shorthand if you don’t know that that is).  I always like beauty gifts for these kind of gift giving opportunities.  They are personal, as you’re picking out something you think she would like, flatter her.  They’re extremely useable and something Mom doesn’t really treat herself to all the time.

Limited Edition Beauty for Mother's Day

Limited Edition Beauty for Mother’s Day

The Mother’s Day beauty selections are really wearable, practical and pretty.  The packaging is extremely giftable, you could just tie them up in a bow and give!  The actual item’s design are really pretty too, and they all mix and match to create a perfect little bundle/gift set.

I selected my top picks here and look how pretty they all are bundled together.  The Iconic Avon Blooming Blush Palette is the star of the show.  Substantial in size, weight, and product amount is worth far more then the $9.99 its going for.  The formula is spot on as well.  VERY wearable shades and who doesn’t want a healthy flush!?  Here I’m wearing the pink shade and you can see how healthy it looks! (also wearing the peachy/coral shade in this post)

4 Beautiful Shades for $9.99

Bundled along side are a few lip products, the Iconic Avon Lipstick in Natural Shimmer, the Mom’s The Balm Lip Balm in Melon and the Iconic Avon Blooms & Kisses Lip Gloss.  These three all stand on their own or paired together.  The Iconic Avon Lipsticks are in those classic metal lipstick tubes that are so fancy and feel so luxe.  In these pics I’m wearing the Blooms & Kisses Gloss in Lively Violet and let me tell you how pigmented and long lasting this little guy is… and at $4.99!  Also shown, the Iconic Avon Pearly Earrings (see Heather’s picks below for more details!)

Finally, fragrance!  Not only did Avon launch a pretty new spring scent, Flourish Honey Blossom, we also have some gift sets released for Mother’s Day.  I JUST LOVE the gingham design, marrying perfectly with the other beauty products.  Giftsets available in Velvet (shown here) and Haiku including a full size fragrance, body lotion and travel size mist.

“On Mother’s Day we show the mother figures in our lives how much we love and appreciate them – and Avon has released the perfect vintage inspired jewelry line that includes a heart brooch, pearly earrings, a dangling charms bracelet, a pearly ring and a pendant watch necklace.  All the above are absolutely stunning in traditional gold settings and would make killer gifts for your wife, mom, grandma, sister, aunt or other mom you want to celebrate. Make it twice as nice by getting your favorite ladies matching pieces and present them at the same time.

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the brooch, earrings and watch necklace.  The brooch is hefty and features gorgeous scroll work with some sparkly bits sprinkled on top.  Brooches make great additions to hats, coats, scarves, tops and even as hair decorations.  The earrings show off two beautiful pearls in a leafy bed of gold that simply delights.  The watch necklace features an incredibly long chain and a sturdy watch pendant – the chain could be wound around a wrist instead of worn around a neck or the pendant could be removed from the chain altogether to attach a clip assembly and tack it to a handbag, keychain or tons of other places!” – Heather

Heather styled these vintage inspired pieces perfectly with her vintage inspired look.  Excuse me while I go grab a scarf to look as adorable as she does in her neck scarf.  Classic pieces make excellent giftables… even as a gift for yourself!

A Spring Dress That’s Actually Functional For Spring

A Spring Dress That's Actually Functional For Spring

A Spring Dress That’s Actually Functional For Spring

Wear and Share Wednesday is all about the spring dresses! With Easter this Sunday, and numerous Spring events, I always find myself needing a new spring dress. The thing with Spring is it can still be pretty chilly, especially in the morning, you know, like when Easter service is and brunch! So not only do we need a new spring dress, we need a functional way to wear it.

Layering A Pretty Spring Dress

Layering A Pretty Spring Dress

This is why I love a long sleeve dress!  It gives you JUST enough to keep you warm in that spring breeze.  Layer it with a longer spring jacket like a trench and you can combat those overcast days.

I’m loving this long sleeve dress from mark., the Floral Femme Printed Dress.  Its a lightweight almost gauzy material so as the sun does warm up the afternoon you can push up the banded sleeves and bask in the warmth. Flowing, free-spirited and feminine, it’s the perfect peasant for springtime.  Plus the pretty pastel mint base with a print in living coral, navy and white make this an excellent on trend design.

Mixing Prints

Mixing Prints

For spring events layer this dress with a navy and white trench, (Expresss; old).  We are pulling that navy out of the print on the dress and pattern mixing with the nautical stripes.  Work your topper to match your dress for an even more polished look especially for things like Easter, baby showers, wedding showers, etc.  To keep the chill off even more I wore closed toe mules in white, (Express; old) and a spring scarf (Avon; old).

Pretty Prints and Pretty Baubles

Pretty Prints and Pretty Baubles

I styled this dress with a mint statement necklace and pearly accented bangles (Avon; old).  This allows me to dress up a boho dress for my Spring events.  Shimmery peach makeup finishes off the look in an appropriate, but also fun, way.

Moves Like Jagger

Moves Like Jagger

Wear and Share Wednesday has moves like Jagger… or at least that’s how I feel, a little like Mick Jagger in this OOTD.

Bell Sleeves and Striped Pants

Bell Sleeves and Striped Pants

My Mick Jagger Vibe really comes from these Hudson striped skinny jeans being paired with a very boho blouse from mark.  The mark. Tassel Without Hassle Tunic is described as “Unleash your desert spirit and let it roam for miles with flowy fits and boho-inspired silhouettes. Break free with the totally-airy tunic that takes you away on a spontaneous adventure.”  If that doesn’t embody the spirit of the 60’s… and 60’s Mick Jagger… than I don’t know what does.

mark. by Avon Tassel Without Hassle Tunic

My vibe isn’t so much boho or free spirit but I appreciate it so I took it in my own direction with pairing it with striped pants and silver and turquoise jewelry.  The mark. Third Layer’s A Charm Necklace is a real show stopper, take my word for it, but it also has that layered jewelry look all in one piece.  Mick Jagger vibes all in one necklace.

I just feel I could hop on a tour bus and do a summer tour in this outfit!  It was mega comfortable, and shout out to Liselda who’s Secret Santa Marshall’s Gift Card got me these Hudsons 😉

Word of Alicia:  If you loved the mark. liquid shadows of yesteryear (mark. all time eye, see here) then you’ll love these!  Like me, I loved those mark ones especially in the summer for an eye that’s not overdone.  The formula is better, no creasing and stays all day, double the size and they’re glittery!  These aren’t quite on the same level as the Stila ones but those are $22 a pop and these are $5.99, so you do the math.  I picked up 4 shades, Rose Gold, Fool’s Gold, Jade and Peach Sapphire, all 4 I’m loving.  So much that I ordered two more shades!

How I’m Wearing the Glimmershadows:  After playing around with these new releases, I found my favorite way to apply them.  Because these are such a strong formula, I don’t need an eye primer, I start with using the doe foot applicator straight on the lid, all over, staying below the crease and running under my lower lash line as well.  I let those set, and curl my lashes with an eyelash curler.  Then, using a fluffy eyeshadow brush, I run a taupe shade in my crease and outer v (as you would a transition shade).  I then use a white eyeshadow on my inner corner and brow bone to brighten the eye.  Finish it of with my go-to cat eye liner, and a coat of black mascara.  I’ve literally done this with each of the 4 shades and it slay’s all day!  They look put together, and make my eyes pop!

Happy First Day of Spring!  And just like that, as we hit the daylight savings day switch, it feels like spring.  The cold and rain here seems to of given way for some warm sun this week and those longer days feel so nice and energetic! But with spring comes spring fashion that needs to be just as energetic but also functional, as the afternoon sun warms things the cold night still keep things chilly.  So I’m following the blue print for spring fashion:  spring layers.

This denim moto jacket was super comfy to wear all day like a layer not just a jacket.  It has good stretch in it and is a deep solid indigo.  I was in a sweater rut and just like the rest of us ready for something new and fresh.  When that afternoon sun hit I took it off and the long sleeve dress worked perfectly.
