Get The Look: Lauren Conrad Inspired Makeup Look For September

Lauren Conrad Inspired Makeup For September

Lauren Conrad Inspired Makeup For September

Yesterday I shared my inspiration for September (check it here), included was this makeup look from the LC Lauren Conrad September campaign.  I liked I it so much I decided to recreate it with products I had.

Lauren Conrad's Makeup for September

Lauren Conrad’s Makeup for September

The key points to recreate from Lauren Conrad’s look is her flawless skin, thick winged liner and a deep berry/Bordeaux lip.  I will never be quite so flawless but foundation is the right starting point to this look.

Avon Ideal Flawless Foundation For The Base

Avon Ideal Flawless Foundation For The Base

Face:  Avon Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage Liquid Foundation in Creamy Natural, mark. Just Blushing in Dollhouse (no longer available try Avon Ideal Luminous Blush in Heavenly Pink) and for highlighter I used mark. Touch and Glow Shimmer Cubes in Coral.

Inspired Look With Pink Eyes, Winged Liner and Deep Lips

Inspired Look With Pink Eyes, Winged Liner and Deep Lips

Lauren’s eyes seem to have a bit more of a rose gold and bronze shading to them but I was inspired to just go with a light shimmering pink all over my lids.  The pink and burgundy play so well together in her outfit so well it inspired me to leave it just as is.  If you wanted to go more true to her look I would work in the mark. On The Dot pallet in Neutral in the outer V and middle of lid.  I used Lauren’s favorite mark. liner for the wing and lots of mascara to recreate her full lashes.

 

Eye Look Using mark. On the Edge Liquid Liner

Eyes:  mark. Spring Fling Eye Pallet (contact to order), mark. On The Edge Hookup Liquid Liner in Cleo, Avon Big and Daring Waterproof Mascara in black.

Avon Beyond Color Lipstick In Revenge

Lips:  Avon Beyond Color Lipstick in Revenge.  Avon just re-released their Beyond Color lipstick in an updated formula and new shades along with classic favorites.  This shade Revenge is the perfect deep berry/bordeaux shade I’ve been looking for.  (and spot on for this recreation!).

This is definitely a look I’ll be wearing all September.  You can shop the products used here and check out the shop tab for all the promo codes available at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger 

BONUS:  Not sure if you’re as big of a fan of the LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s collection as I am.  BUT tonight they’ll be airing her first runway collection for the line live from NY Fashion week.  Be sure to head over to kohls.com at 7pm est to get the deets.  Download the app periscope to view on your device.  That navy moto jacket with the rose gold detail is calling my name!  I love how fun and creative this line is, they do a great job sticking with the esthetic and keeping things unique!

 

PS.  I’m going to throw this out there… Galaxy S5 camera is the WORST.  These images were taken with the front facing camera which is even worse then the backside.  But makeup pics and front facing selfie camera go together like pb & jelly!  I can’t believe what an inferior product Samsung made with this camera.  It rarely focus and the images are grainy and horrible even in natural light.  I’m too lazy to bust out my slr, set up a tripod and use my remote when I have a self facing camera in the palm of my hand.  If there was ever a reason to upgrade your phone this would be it… I despise it.  So sorry for the crappy images, maybe because I’ll be wearing this look all Sept. long you’ll see me in person and be like killer lipstick!

5 Ways To Wear An Infinity Scarf from Day To Night

1 Infinity Scarf Worn 5 Ways

1 Infinity Scarf Worn 5 Ways

Happy first day of fall!  Even though I’m forever a summer child, I’m officially now ok with busting out a scarf (over a tank), lighting a pumpkin candle (like the current favorite Pumpkin Pecan Waffles from B&BW) and stepping into some booties (preferably peep-toed).  Fall adds a layer of cozy to your life as the days get shorter and cooler.  The best way to combat that is with a scarf.  I’m currently LOVING the mark. All Around Style Scarf ($18 on sale for only $10 with a qualifying purchase at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger).  It’s the perfect balance of fun and fall, and super versatile for changing weather and functions.  Here are 5 different ways to style your infinity scarf using the mark. All Around Style Scarf.

1.  SHRUG

As you start your day it can be pretty chilly in the mornings so start it off by wearing your infinity scarf as a shrug.  Just open it up so its the full circle the slip it around your shoulders.  Done.

2.  One Shoulder

As the morning starts to warm up switch it from a shrug to a one shoulder cover up.  Wrap it around your neck twice then pull to one side, fluff and tuck as need be.

3.  The OG

The OG way (original gangsta for the urban impaired) is my favorite way.  Simple, to the point, keeps the chill off and shows off the full pattern of the scarf.  It’s perfect for the mid day.

4.  Halter Top

The day has warmed up and its time to head out to happy hour which means time to step up the outfit!  Take the scarf fully open and let it hang from your neck.  Next twist it once so they sides cross over each other.  Take the open loop and flip it around your head and shoulders and put your arms through the loops created.  Adjust it to your liking.  I personally opened it up more around the chest and tucked the “straps” to keep them slim.

5.  Kimono-Like

As the night cool creeps in and you start to get a little chilly transition your infinity scarf to almost a reverse shrug for a kimono-like look.  All you do is open it to its full size wide in one giant loop and wrap around your shoulders.  It’s like wrapping yourself in your own scarf blanket!
