Have you ever found yourself getting sucked into YouTube beauty or makeup tutorials? The other weekend when I was browsing online, I some how came across this Kim Kardashian video tutorial on strobing with her makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic. First off, do you think strobing is the new contouring?
Anywho, one thing lead to another and soon enough I had watched more Kim Kardashian make up tutorials than I’d like to admit. So given I did so much research on her make up/beauty routine, I thought it was only fair to share the wealth with you guys.
I’m a big, big fan of achieving a natural “glow” during summer so I actually thought some of the products that Mario Dedivanovic recommended during the various tutorials we’re great. I was also pleasantly surprised that I already had a good amount of these products in my make up bag (celebs, their just like us!). Here’s what I already own and what I’ll be purchasing (most likely during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!).
The number one product I want to add to my make up bag is this Marc Jacobs Twinkle Pop Eye Stick (in Honey Bunny). Of course the shade that is shared in the video tutorial is sold out on Sephora, but there are plenty of other color options to choose from.
Tom Ford nude lipsticks. Throughout numerous articles and videos, Kim shares how her and Mario like to stick to a “nude’ shade when it comes to lipsticks and more often than not, they actually mix different colors.
Also from Charlotte Tillbury’s line, the ‘Lip Cheat’ Re-size and re-shape lip liner was also used in the video tutorial with Mario. I have to be honest, I never ever use lip liner but because this is so nude I’d be willing to test it out.
John Knott’s summer home in Maine is a real show stopper. You may recognize John from his company, Quadrille Fabrics, that is very well known for bright and bold beautiful fabrics and wallpapers. It’s no surprise that John’s Main summer home is full of bright patterns and wallpaper used throughout each and every room. I missed this home tour when it first appeared in House Beautiful but thank goodness for my friend Sue who re-shared the photos recently to bring it to my attention. Naturally I had to share myself as this home is right up my alley. The home used to be a former hotel, so cool – right? John sure knows how to master an eclectic mix of both modern and vintage pieces. In case you want to get the look below, shop my favorite products below. Happy almost weekend!! Xo. Lauren

The Early Access Pre-Sale will begin July 14th so be sure to check back in to see what Nordstrom has lined up for us this year. Basically, we have a lot of shopping to do, my friends.
Anywho, I hope you all have some fun plans lined up for the holiday weekend and can head out of the office early today. In the meantime, below are all the sales that you need to know about this weekend. Don’t forget to share the wealth with your family and friends. Happy Friday and have a safe 4th!! Xo. Lauren
Old Navy: I keep mentioning Old Navy over here. I’m pretty sure 80% of my summer wardrobe has come from here this summer! They’re currently offering 60% off the entire this weekend. A striped swing dress for $8 dollars? White linen shorts for $11 dollars? Go. Run.
