I am super excited to go out tonight with my awesome friend Melissa for a night on the town. We are planning to go to Bamboo Sushi for dinner, Salt and Straw for dessert and then go to a book event at New Renaissance Book Store. I’m super excited to go hear Alexandra Franzen (bit.ly/50-ways-pdx-if you are interested in seeing what I’m doing!).
I love getting dressed up for fun and I feel like since I’ve hit 30, I’ve been so much more on the ball about wearing makeup and taking pride in how I look. I recently got my haircut and also received a fun makeup kit (http://studiogearcosmetics.com/shop/eye-make-up/holiday-smokey-eye-palette/) that I’m super excited to try out for tonight.
It was actually perfect timing that my holiday sample arrived today.
I love it because it’s all fun holiday colors:
The one on the bottom left looks super dark in this picture but it’s more of a charcoal gray with sparkles and the blush in the middle is more of a pink than a peach. I am an idiot with makeup and so I was super grateful that there was a guide on how to put on the makeup on the cover of the kit.
Although I didn’t have all the brushes that were listed in there-I definitely need to work on my brush content! I think I did a good job of going from this:
The makeup kit was very easy to use and the colors are great for even non-holiday time. This was my first time using Studio Gear and I am definitely a fan and will use it again in the near future!
I know I still have a lot to learn about how to properly put on makeup but I am definitely enjoying the process and I really do feel good when I go out wearing makeup and I know that I will have super fun and feel photo-worthy tonight!
I was so lucky to be given this opportunity through Brandbacker and was sent the makeup palate to try. All opinions here are my own.
I’m also excited to offer a discount for you guys:

This is awesome because you can use it on this really cool palate that I got as well as other stuff! Here is the link to their website and specifically to what I used today.
