Pop of Color

Happy Thursday! 

Spring has officially sprung here in Charlotte. Besides the past two rainy days, it’s been sunny and in the 80's. I can’t believe it’s only April and its already this hot! But hey, I’m not complaining. I’m so excited to pull out my jean shorts and tanks tops! 

I snagged this adorable floral blue tank from Francesca's for 50% off. It’s simple yet it adds a pop of spring with the floral print. For this look, I paired it with white jeans but I think it would also look great with jean shorts. I love throwing in pops of color in spring and summer to add a statement to any look. I think the orange earrings and purse went so well with the blue! 

I have literally been wearing these mules on repeat lately. From work outfits to everyday looks, they go with everything and are very comfy which makes them that much better! 

 Let me know what pops of color yall like adding to your spring/summer looks?! 

Thanks for stopping by!

I’ve linked the tank here and all the other items in this look below, so just click to shop!

LimeLight Makeup Review

Hey girl hey!

Today, I wanted to share some of my beauty favorites. For the longest time, I could NOT find a makeup that I liked. I'm the girl that would buy a new foundation every month because I either hated the way it made my face feel or it was completely off my face by the end of the day. I've tried everything from high end products to drug store and nothing seemed to work with my oily skin and big pores. The makeup would just sit in my pores and look terrible. Well, that changed recently when a friend introduced me to the makeup company LimeLight and I purchased some of their products. It's literally been a game changer for my skin and my makeup looks flawless throughout the day. No lie, this stuff last all day without having to touch it up. Best of all, it's AFFORDABLE. Cheaper than most of the higher end products at Ulta or Sephora.

For those of you who have never heard of LimeLight by Alcone, I’ll give you a little background. Alcone Company opened in 1952 as a pharmacy that also sold cosmetics to Broadway performers. Makeup artist were always referring their clients to the Alcone store and they wanted to find a way to reward them so they took their best selling products and let beauty guides sell them as LimeLight. Their mission is to find the best makeup products from around the world and offer them at affordable prices so everyone could purchase it, not just the rich and famous. This makeup is professional grade and is formulated with a much higher percent of pigment that covers everything with less makeup meaning it saves you money because you don’t have to buy it as often! And a plus, it is natural with no harsh chemicals and cruelty free.

Here are some of the LimeLight products I purchased and love:

This stuff is AMAZING. The kit I bought came with two concealers, one for covering redness and the other for highlight under the eyes. All the concealers are waterproof which is perfect for those hot summer days.

My new favorite foundation! If you want to wear the same foundation as Beyonce, Kim Kand J Lo well then this is for you. It has 50% pigment and can also be worn as a tinted moisturizer. I was so skeptical about trying something new but this stuff is literally the best. It's hydrating (but not too much for oily skin) and gives a nice glow and great coverage. It has the most flawless coverage, looks and feels like skin and it never gets cakey when I apply it with LimeLight’s Blenderful sponge. The foundation lasted me for about 6 months, being used almost every day.

HOLY GRAIL PRODUCT! Once you try this mascara you will never go back, seriously! It is a fiber mascara that defines each lash making them look super long. The best $20 dollars I've ever spent.

There are so many awesome colors to choose from and the enduring lip colors will last all day! Crème Brulee and Mia are my two favorites right now. 

This has really helped my makeup last all day. It prevents redness, uneven skin tone and will not clog your pores. The bottle will last foreverrrrrr. 

 I would never recommend something I didn’t truly use and like myself and if you haven’t tried this makeup up yet, you should! I recently became a Beauty Guide with LimeLight because of how much I enjoy using these products. So, if you have any questions or want to try it out let me know and I’ll give you all the details. You can also click here to see all the products.
