Palm Print Top Under $15



old shorts, similar $19.90
 Hey Y'all! I know it has been ages since I have done a shoot and that's due in part to college/work, but I was FINALLY able to get some free time to shoot this look! This summer the palm print is everywhere and it makes me so happy because this print has been one of my all time favorites for a few years now!
On another note, I am hoping to transfer TPGB over to an actual domain with in the next few months so this may be my last post on this specific website.

My Favorite Accesories

Hey ya'll, today's post is all about my favorite accessories (jewelry)!
Jewelry is a marvelous accessory that women and men can wear to help express their personal style. For me, jewelry has always played a big role in my day to day style. On casual days I wear basic gold necklaces, studs, my ring, and sometimes a bracelet or a watch. But when it comes to my most fabulous of outfits, I like to jazz them up with a pop of color, some texture, and a little bit of shimmer. So here are a few of my favorite accessories for when I am dressed to impress.

Affordable Everyday Makeup Routine

Make up is essential to a girls head-to-toe look and something that we wear to make us feel glamorous and self confident. But sadly, makeup tends to be way over priced. Do you ever walk into Sephora, look around, try some samples, and then leave empty handed because the cheapest thing that you want in there is $30? Guilty as charged.
In my free time I like to watch make up tutorials on YouTube. I follow so many beauty channels that use all kinds of make up brands that range from high end like YSL, and drug store brands like wet-n-wild. I also look on pinterest for high end 'dupes' that you can buy at the drug store for a fraction of the cost.
So today I am going to share with ya'll my step-by-step affordable everyday makeup routine.

For primer I use Wet-n-Wild CoverAll Face Primer and apply it just as you would a moisturizer. $4.99 what a steal! 
For foundation I use Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation in shade 332 Golden Caramel (when I have my fake tan on) and apply that with a damp (and dirty) Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.
This is my absolute FAVORITE concealer ever. (if you cant tell from how often is has been used) Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in shade 15 Fair Clair. I first apply using the doe foot applicator and place it under my eyes, down the bridge of my nose, cupids bow, and the center of my forehead, then blend with the same sponge that I used for my foundation.
After I have applied my concealer, I make sure to set my entire face with Coty Airspun Translucent Extra Coverage Loose Face Powder and apply with any loose powder brush.
This step is very important in my routine since I have very splotchy eyebrows. I fill in my brows with Salon Perfect Done In One Brow Pomade in shade light brown.
This is hands down the best drug store bronzer and its only $3.62!!! Crazy! I apply NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Powder in shade Sunny, with any bronzer brush, to the hollows of my cheeks, around the top of my forehead, and down my neck to even out the color.
I apply Wet-n-Wild To Reflect Shimmer Palette in shade Boozy Brunch with a fan brush to my cheek bones, down the bridge of my nose, cupids bow, and on my brow bone.

 This is the most perfect blush palette that has all the shades you could ever need! I apply one of the shades from the e.l.f. Powder Blush Palette in Light with an angled blush brush to the apples of my cheeks and blend backwards.

From what I hear, this is the number one drug store mascara, and I believe it. After curling my lashes, I apply Loreal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara in shade Blackest Black to my top and bottom lashes.
This last and final step is the most important step to ensure that your makeup last all day long! I liberally apply NYX Makeup Setting Spray - Dewy and let it completely dry.
I hope this post was helpful for you girlies struggling to find cheap make up that actually works!
