Beauty Product Love

One way I have tried to make my old clothes/outfits appear new is by switching up and being creative with make-up and nail polish.  I love wearing an unexpected shade of nail polish or eyeliner with a bright pop of color; I think it can make an outfit look entirely different just by changing up the color of your nails or make-up.  Although beauty products are excluded from my shopping abstinence, I am going to attempt to avoid creating a shopping addiction with those items seeing as how I could easily spend my bank account at just Sephora.  Here are some favorite products I use to go for a new look with what I already have:

Nail polish from left: Essie's "Turquoise and Caicos", Sephora by OPI's "Traffic Stopper Copper", Estee Lauder's "Rosa Rosa", OPI's "Lucky Lucky Lavendar", & Sephora by OPI's "Opening Night"

Eye shadow from left: i.d. Bare Minerals' "2000", MAC's "Tilt", MAC's "Sumptuous Olive", & i.d. Bare Minerals' "Drama"; Nail polish: Sephora by OPI's "Iris I Was Thinner"

 Lipstick: MAC's "Viva Glam Cyndi", Clinique's "Soft Bloom", NARS' "Sexual Healing", Estee Lauder's "Crystal Pink", and MAC's "Saint Germain" 

Eye shadow from left: i.d. Bare Minerals' "In The Buff", MAC's "Mulch", MAC's "Blue Brown", & Estee Lauder's "11 Shells" Eye Shadows Duo; Eye liner: Sephora's "Silver Electro", MAC's "Sagegrass", & Sephora's "Electric Shark"; Lipstick: MAC's "Bombshell"

Nail polish: OPI's "Malaysian Mist" & OPI's "Glow Up Already" + Essie's "Set In Stones"; Rings: Pianegonda & Gorjana
