|My Girl @Tess_Made|

So I have this friend. She is beyond talented. I mean seriously, you give her an idea that umm I don’t know, you want a pancake to look like… A flower garden and she’ll do it beyond what you even thought was possible.

She has been apart of many memories in my life by making such amazing designs for me. She made my wedding 7 years ago look like a floral dream and now she is making these ridiculous like amazinggggg real flower, feather headpieces and just much more creativity. If your not already following @tess_made you need to. I look forward to her posts on the daily! Oh and did I add she really is the SWEETEST thing out there!

Ok, so this feather headpiece umm I die. I asked her to throw together something for Stella’s + Beckham’s Indian shoot if you missed it here is what she made.

Tess of course saw the vision and threw in one for mama too. I had to fully document this one on a later shoot with my girl @lauren_pollard_photography. How amaze is this piece?!!! I die. And of course it went perfect with these pants from @boomboombrazil my other good friend’s store. She seriously has the cutest suits from Brazil for so cheap. If you live in San Diego check out her website for the stores Open Hours since they change weekly. She also ships world wide too! this is my second pair of these pants. I’m obsessed. So comfy and light. Perfect for the beach or just those days you want to be comfy!

| My Makeup Essentials |

Hi. My name’s Brooke and I’m a makeup junkie. Yep. I am. Since I’m obsessed with knowing all about beauty finds and learning about what is needed in my makeup bag, I’d thought I’d share my daily makeup routine with you! This is what I wear daily with the possibly changing up my eyeshadow to gold or brown. On the weekends if I’m doing nothing you’ll see me with basically blush and mascara on only….. Lazy as hell.

Ok so on it. I’ve been on the hunt forever now for a setting spray that makes your makeup last. Well, after watching many YouTube makeup tutorials I learned about this ALL time favorite game changer spray from Urban Decay Up All Night Setting Spray seriously you guys I’d come home from work with my makeup gone and my million of freckles shinning through! This totally last. You all need. I’ve also tried a million different primers. This one from Mac has been pretty awesome too. Good combo here.

20140520-162558-59158866.jpg

I then use both of these for my makeup. The Chanel Lift Lumiere foundation and Laura Mercier loose powder both have extra coverage and are pretty dewy.

20140520-163124-59484213.jpg

Next, I use Chanel concealer and just loveeeee this eyeshadow primer, Wheat from Laura Mercier it’s great even without any shadow too for those “non makeup” days.

20140520-163838-59918741.jpg<

I then spray the heck out of the spray I also spray more at end.

Ok now my fav, contouring. I just got this highlighting pen from Mac. It’s fab. and ummmm hello, I’m slightly in love with this Hoola bronzer. it’s legit. Great color and comes with a brush that’s a perfect shape! Run people and purchase. Then I use Mac blush usually. right now I’m mixing Peaches and Rosy Outlook

20140520-172544-62744123.jpg

Now onto brows. I was introduced to @kellybakerbrows on IG. You must check her out. She has the greatest brow YouTube tutorials. Thank gawddddd I found her!!!! I also use her brow lift stuff. It’s the white pencil that you use under the brow. I don’t use a brow highlighter shadow ever since using this. It totally takes it’s place!

20140520-183027-66627873.jpg

Then I do a black liner on top from Laura Mericer I was using Mac’s Black Track for years but hated how this dried out so quick. I was told about this one and it has totally lasted me forever and it’s just like Black Track. I then smudge my liner on the bottom with Mac Prolong eyeshadow Make Your Mark and use in the crease. Can’t forget about Chanel Volume Mascara I have tried SO many and this one I always go back to. It’s fab too. You need her! />
20140520-193238-70358156.jpg

Ok last step. I know your probably thinking wtf. Who has time for all this. Or maybe your nodding and saying duh this is a no brainer, give me more??!!!

I use Subculture lip liner from Mac forever now. It just makes my lips look bigger. It’s a light nude color. And then I use Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightner and Nars highlighter, Albatross found this on Pinterest. Seriously can’t go without this. Then lastttt I spray more setting spray!

20140520-200246-72166680.jpg

Hope you got some ideas! I got it all at Ulta and Nordstroms.

Let me know if you try any of it out!

Muah!! 💋

20140518-103842.jpgThis photo shoot you guys. Is the sweetest thing. My sis n law and I were pregnant together with each of our 2 babies. She had 2 boys and I had 2 girls. So crazy. And with both pregnancies we were 5 to 6 months a part. The best thing!! Just love having these cousins so close in age!! Our oldest Caprice + Noah are seriously bff. They are the cutest together and their bond is so sweet. We are planning and hoping Stella + Beckham will be too. So of course we had to document their cuteness. @Lauren_pollard_photography of course did it again with this shoot. Check her out, especially if you are local in the San Diego area. She lives in Temecula but travels to surrounding areas. Great prices, seriously the BEST set design, and she seriously is the sweetest thing ever!! My SIL found her on Facebook a few years ago and she has captured many memories for us and has turned into a great friend!! Her ideas are out of control. She needs to be famous. Can we make her please….

Ok, so when we showed up to shoot both of us lost it. Lauren and her bestie collab on this set. I mean. Seriously. Every detail was perfection. And the babies headpieces were made by one of my besties if your not aware of this chick @tess_made you need to, and the fringe diaper covers by my friend @b_savy seriously made this shoot. Both SO good!!!

Find Lauren on Facebook and like her page to see all of her photos. You will die.

20140510-215559.jpg

So I’m just in love with these shorts from the minted exchange they look super cute with so much. I know I’ll be wearing these a bunch! Again I’m sorry girls, the only thing I’m wearing new are these shorts but hopefully you got some style inspiration here! A graphic tee goes with so much and makes it look cute and edgy.. Hope all you mamas had a nice and relaxing day with your people yesterday!!

Chat soon loves!
