Friday Favs + Mini Review #shapematters

So, this week’s Friday favourites is just going to be one product but I swear to god this product is so amazing it takes the place of like 5 other products you have in your makeup collection. If you don’t know, I’ve started to get more into beauty and makeup products and I want to bring that into my blog. Much like fashion and clothing, makeup is a way of having fun and trying new things. It’s not about disguising yourself or trying to be something you’re not. It’s about doing what makes you happy and feel good! Enough rambling and let’s get to the good stuff.

This week I’m talking about the new Smashbox #ShapeMatters palette. If you follow me on Instagram (which you should) then you have seen a couple posts where I rave about how amazing this product is. This product contains 2 eyebrow powders and a wax, 4 contour and highlight shades and 9 eyeshadow shades, oh and a double ended brush for the eyebrows and eyeshadows. This palette is honestly so multi-purpose, it’s amazing. Every single colour in this palette is amazing and can be used for day or night makeup looks. The colours have great pigmentation and they blend very easily. I’ve been using this palette like every single day since I’ve bought it and the colours last so long on the skin. The palette is $69.00 on Sephora.com and it is SO worth the price. I’ve been wanting to buy the contour palette and sticks from Smashbox but have held off since they are a little pricey. So as soon as I heard about this palette, it was a no brainer that I needed it.

Now we’re getting to the real good stuff; swatches and pictures.

[EYE] vanilla, totally nude, champagne, stripped, posh, platinum, sumatra, aubergine, blackout

I’ve been loving wearing ‘GLOW’ as a highlight and ‘HIGHLIGHT’ to set my under eye concealer. Oh the irony. I use ‘CONTOUR’ everyday to, you guessed it, contour. It gives a really natural looking structure to the face, unlike some other powders that look to orange or unnatural. I haven’t gotten around to using the darker eyeshadow shades but I have used almost all the lighter ones and I love them all.

If you haven’t gotten the hint already then what I’m trying to say is that you need this palette. Even if you’re a beginner to the makeup world (I still consider myself one), this is a great multi-purpose palette to get you started. If you are usually unsure about buying palettes because of the price or maybe you won’t use a couple shades, like myself, this palette will seriously amaze you and it is definitely worth the price. For me, I took into consideration that I wanted to buy the trio contour sticks from Smashbox and those alone are $52, this palette was only $17 more and I got 1 more contour shade, 9 eyeshadows, a brush and 3 eyebrow products. If that’s not a great value, I don’t know what is.

Friday Favs

Today’s Friday Favs will be a little different because I will just be talking about one item in particular because I have been wearing them almost everyday. Drumroll please… this item is a lace bralette. I have quite a few different styles and colours in these and I LOVE wearing them. I wear them around the house, if I don’t feel like putting a real bra on (we’ve all been there) and I wear them when I’m going out. They are so comfy and add a super feminine touch to your outfit. It also looks really cute when it’s peaking through your top. All of mine are from Aerie because they seem to sell the largest product range. There are so many stores that sell lace bralettes so I suggest you grab some!

I’ll share a couple pictures of the ones I have but I’ll leave some links below on where to find some other really cute ones. The great thing about Aerie is that they sell these bralettes through every season and they come in so many colours, bright neons for summer and darker hues for fall/winter. They have some with padding for days where you are wearing it out or if you just want the support and ones without padding for lazy days or for smaller chested women.

Some other stores that sell too cute to be real bralettes are Aritzia, Urban Outfitters, Nasty Gal and so many more. Let me know where you have bought you’re fav bralettes from in the comment box below! Happy Friday!

Friday Favs

Today marks the first day of a new segment here on hungry4style! Every Friday I will be sharing my favs, from beauty to fashion to lifestyle. I love watching favourite videos on YouTube and reading them on blogs so I thought I would start my own. Most of the time, I will go out and buy a favourite that another blogger has raved about, hehe. I hope you enjoy this and maybe we’ll have some similar favourites or you will find new favourites! That being said, be sure to check back every Friday (you can sign up to the right to be emailed when a new post is out) and follow me on Instagram @hungry4style .

These small dainty necklaces are SO cute layered with each other, they are so simple yet they add so much to your outfit. Some days I don’t really feel like accessorizing but these are so effortless and you can’t go wrong. These are from Forever 21.

Where to I begin on this eyeshadow stick????? First, its like $4 and second, it is just amazeballs. I am so obsessed with gold eyeshadows atm and this chubby stick from NYC has got me going. The colour lasts all day and doesn’t crease, whatsoever. If you’re looking for a summery, bronze glow then I definitely recommend these. They come in quite a few colours but this is my favourite. I have recently been wearing it on my lower lash line and it looks amazing. This colour is 620 Murray Hill Champagne.

Summer is the perfect time to get that glow you’ve been waiting for. This shimmering skin perfector from Becca can give you that without having to tan. I’ve seen other bloggers mix it in with their moisturizer (body or face) to achieve an overall glow but I like to use it as a highlight on the top of my cheekbone. This colour is Opal and it’s not too sparkly and it doesn’t make you look oily.

So these shorts have literally been the only pair I’ve been wearing when I’m out and about. That may have sounded a little gross but don’t worry I wash them, lol. These shorts are so comfy and you can wear them with a tee during the day and dress them up with a crop top and sandals at night. So versatile and so cute. So many stores sell this style so I would go grab a pair asap!! These are from Express, but I know Brandy Melville also sells super cute ones.

Pattern Daze

 Mixing patterns can be tricky to pull off, but once you get it, your outfit looks amazing. I went for more subtle pattern mixing, with a plaid flannel and leopard print sneakers. Since both pieces are at opposite ends of the body, nothing clashed. I also haven’t worn my wool hat in a while and I felt like throwing it on, one of those last minute decisions. Have a great Friday!! IMG_3391
