Date night in NOLA

Last night Jake and I went on a date in New Orleans to see a movie. We went to the Theatres at Canal Place, which is a movie theater where dinner is served. We had such a great time! We went to see Gravity and it was an awesome movie, but raised my stress levels for sure! It was a fantastic experience and was so worth it! It was unlike anything I've done before and would definitely do it again. Anyways, like I said I would, I've been experimenting with things in my closet and this is what I came up with.

Top: Zara
Necklace: jewelry show
Jeans: Asos
Belt: Michael Kors via TJ Maxx
Flats: American Eagle (old)

Not that this outfit looks very out there, but I haven't worn this necklace in years, I never pull out those flats, and I didn't exactly know how the top would look tucked in, or how it would all come together. I must say though, overall I'm pleased with how it came out! And you can't really tell in these pictures, but these jeans are high waisted and I LOVE them!

Now for my makeup which was definitely my favorite part about my look.


For my foundation I started with MAC Studio Fix foundation and applied it with a Sonia Kashuk stippling brush. Then, I used MAC blotting powder to set my foundation. I used Clinique True Bronze Pressed Powder Bronzer in "Sunkissed" below my cheekbones and Covergirl cheekers blush in "Rose Silk" on the apples of my cheeks. Under my eyes I used Clinique line smoothing concealer in "moderately fair". For my eyes first, I used E.L.F. eye lid primer. Then, I used my Naked 2 Palette and put "Foxy" under my brows. I used "verve" on the bottom part of my lid and then used "tease" in my crease. To highlight the inner corner of my eyes, I used "bootycall". Then I lined my lids using E.L.F cream eyeliner and winged out the outer corner. I didn't want it too precise looking so I used "blackout" with a smudge brush and went over then wing and underneath the outer half of my eye as well. Then, I used a regular black eyeliner to line only the outer half of my waterline. To finish it off, I used Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara. For my lips I used "Moonlight Kiss" from the Cinderella collection at Sephora.
 I LOVE how this look came out!

Thats all for today. It's game time! Geaux Tigers!
