Week O’Nautical – Beach Please

Week O'Nautical - Beach Please

Week O’Nautical – Beach Please

It’s that time again… Week O’Nautical time! The week before our summer holidays, (Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day) I theme out my life with nautical influenced red, white, and blue! Unfortunately, this year, I’ve come down with a bad cold so WON gets a late start.  Memorial Weekend is all about fun and sun as it begins the unofficial kickoff to summer.  Lucky for me, my mom was still here visiting so we spent her last day poolside… well hot tub-side because the pool was too cold, but regardless we took advantage and had some fun in the sun.

Today’s look may of been meant for louging poolisde, but it would be just as great beachside or at a casual picnic or bbq.  These nautical mark. Beach Bum pants with sailboat print, were the perfect cover up that looked just as good as an outfit as they did over my suit.  And they have pockets!  I paired the mark. Beach Bum pants with a white sweater tank from Express.  A white summer sweater always feels so nautical to me.

Beach Please!  A fun in the sun look isn’t complete without a fun sun hat!  This Avon Beach Please Sun Hat was the perfect topper along with my, Avon Floral Jelly Flip Flops in orange and naucial watch and earrings (Avon Seaside Gardens Capsule Collection).

To be a little more extra I also used the new Avon True Color Sandy Beach Bronzing Pallet (launching May 30th), which was AMAZING!  All I needed was this pallet and some mascara for a perfect beach makeup look.

WORD OF ALICIA:

I definitely would recommend this as your new bronzer!  First off it’s a super stunning package and design.  I love the shell design and its a decent amount of product for only $16.  That super pretty sparkle however is just on the surface, which is kind of a bummer (and biggest con) but honestly I like matte bronzers better anyhow.  This isn’t a true true matte it has the tiniest amount of shimmer.  There is a lot of shimmer here on my face because it was that first swipe of that top layer.  If you never quite liked Glowdacious because it’s too shimmery then you’ll like this one.  I like that this one isn’t orange at all (even though my pic kinda leans orange but that’s my camera settings) and it isn’t too muddy.  I’ve used it to effectively contour, worn just on the tops of my cheeks, and on any areas I want to look sun kissed.  It met all my expectations.  Wear time is nice as well.  If you want to instantly look like you’ve taken an Maui vacation this is the bronzer to do it!

I’m not going to lie, I like looking like I just came back from vacation regardless if it’s a random Tuesday. Problem is I didn’t… so fake it to you make it right!? If you want an instant vacation look you should check out the mark. Buenos Aires Color Collection for you summer makeup:

Catch The Vibe:  At first I was unimpressed with this pallet.  Then I began using it daily and I was like what was I unimpressed with!?  They’re the perfect range of colors for whatever look you’re going for.  I wear the middle pink shade just all over with the liner below for easy day look.  Then I like to mix the grey and purple for a smokey night look.  The purple is matte so it plays really well with the shimmery shades.

Catch The Vibe:  These Saved By The Gel Liners are my new favorite liner.  First off, this pot is going to last you forever so that $11 price tag is pretty much all you’re going to spend for the next year on eyeliner.  The blue shade (Cool Azul) is so pretty and perfect for 4th of July and Labor Day with a red lip!  The colors are super bold, their really wearable so you can wear them for day for a subtle summer look.  Really easy when you don’t want to wear a lot of makeup and these won’t sweat off so win win for summer!

Catch The Vibe:  This is another daily wear item.  I use a fan brush in the bronze to contour and swirl a blush brush in the center 2 shades for the apples of my cheek.  OR if I’m being lazy or for a quick summer look swirl all three on a fluffier blush brush and sweep up from apples to cheek bones.   The purple undertones really make this one stand out from most others out there on the market and it has ZERO orange factor.  THIS IS the item for the fresh from vacation look.
