Ready For My Close Up With Luminess Air

I recently had a night out on the town and needed to (ok, WANTED to) have flawless looking skin that would last the entire evening but also look natural … like I wasn’t wearing any makeup at all. In the past, I have shared with you my love for the Luminess Air Airbrush Foundation System. It is, by far, the lightest and most breathable foundation I have used.  It doesn’t crease like other foundations (finally!) and camouflages dark spots better than any cover up I’ve used. I had always used the foundation alone until I received the Airbrush Essentials Kit, which arrived just in time for my event. I was chomping at the bit to give it a try and I’m so glad I did.

(How pretty is this system? I chose turquoise but it also comes in white and black)

The essentials kit contains products called “Eraser”, “Xout” and “Porcelain” — you may be hooked just from the names alone and you should be.  These 3 items elevated the look of my skin and enhanced the “blurring” effects of the foundation.  I’m talking reducing pore size, evening out skin tone, reducing appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and illuminating the skin for a “soft focus” effect.  This stuff is A-MAZING!

 

 

 

Each item should be applied under the foundation and is specially formulated for buildable coverage that doesn’t become cakey (hallelujah!). The result? Less foundation and a full coverage look.  A win-win in my book.

Oh, I should mention … this is so easy to use that even the most inexperienced users will have no trouble operating the system.  It comes with a video which explains everything from instructions on how many drops of foundation to use, to how to clean the tubing.  Watch it! It will explain everything!

These photos have been untouched.  No editing, no filters.  I had a makeup artist apply my makeup for this event but I have used the airbrush system myself numerous times. You do not need a makeup artist to apply it!

Anthropologie Hot List

Many of us rely on Anthropologie for their unique selection of clothing, mixed price points and amazing customer service.  Beyond that, the possibilities are endless when you walk through the door.

Recently, I spent an evening with fellow local bloggers and the personal shoppers at Anthropologie in Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia. Our goal for the evening? To create unique holiday looks that spoke to our own personal style.

Above I’m wearing a dress by Tracy Reese, which I had purchased at the Anthropologie in King of Prussia. I immediately fell in love with the lace fabrication and versatility of the dress. It came with a black slip dress underneath but I decided to style it with a bodysuit, jeans and over the knee boots. If I had only one piece of advice for people it would be to tap into your creative side and think outside the box when styling your outfits. You don’t have to wear an outfit exactly the way they style it in the store or catalog. There are so many ways to wear this dress, which I will feature in my blog soon!

Ok. Bomber jackets. When this trend first hit the streets I was not a fan and thought I wouldn’t wear a bomber jacket after their stint in the 90’s.  But then,  they started designing them with embroidery and appliqués —> hook, line and sinker. The one I’m wearing here is A-MAZING! Shop it HERE!!! !!!!! If you’re a hat person and want to change things up from the common floppy hat trend, try a beret! They are so Parisian and so chic. Shop a similar one here.

I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite bomber jackets for you to shop:

My fave! A colorblock vegan leather bomber!

Another embroidered option – chic and trendy

Love the cutouts on this one

My fave layering bandeau!🙌🏻

Of the moment VELVET!
