Natural face with waves and a braid!

I haven't been doing much with makeup...or anything beauty related actually! Have been keeping it simple and using up what I already have! I've found all kinds of goodies on the two trips I made to the thrift store though! :] I loveeee thrifting! I wear scrubs at work, which limits my fashion freedom tremendously on a daily basis. I have found a couple of unique things on Etsy too- ADORE Etsy! I just wanted to post an easy look I did and say hello :)

Products used:
Buff'd Minerals foundation in "Beige Medium Tan"
MAC Cream Colour Base in "Pearl" as highlight for cheek bones, under eyebrows, inner eye
Dayna's Minerals bronzer in "Beach" very lightly for cheeks and framing
NYC Translucent power to set
Buffd Minerals "Creamcicle" loose eyeshadow on eyelids
L'Oreal Telescopic mascara
Milani Color Brillance eyeliner pencil in "Black" on waterline
NYX Sheer Lipgloss in "Shangri-la"
Abronne Tinted Brow Wax in "Brunette"

Love your hair!! I always try to do the braid in the front but my hair is SO thin that it looks so tiny and silly!!

Sara said...

Aww, thanks doll! Oh, I have SUPER thin hair- really bad! I am trying to grow my bangs out (which now I dont know if I still want to!) but anyway I used to think that same way, that it would so silly/tiny. Matter of fact, I had previously tried it and it did. SO I was messing around and did it with all of my side bangs and it turned out just how it is in the picture! I love it :] You can also do a twist and do it a littler looser so that it looks fuller. Just take more in to develop a thick braid/twist. You can also make the braid, then go back with a pick comb or a bobby pin or something and "poof" out the braided areas a little so it looks fuller. Hope this helps :] ♥

Very pretty!

New follower, great blog! This is sooo cute! Very bohemian chic!

As far as foundations go I LOVE NARS sheer glow! Recently I have been wearing MAC Pro Longwear but it does not photograph well with flash photography

Sara said...

@ Khola- thanks love :] We should meet up sometime and go thrifting since we live SO close! Where do you go by the way?!

@Jenny- aw thanks doll! I have been wanting to try that NARS foundation for awhile now! So $!

Hey Sara! Thanks so much for your kind words about my blog, Thrift and Shout! I'm still kinda new to the blogging world so I always appreciate any encouragement I can get!
I'm glad you've decided to return to the blogging world. I peaked through your old posts and you had a lot of good content. And you managed to collect 340 followers so you must have been doing something right!
I was also impressed by your makeup! You definitely have a talent for makeup artistry. I can't give you the time or the money to follow your dreams but I can say I know that life is always better when you are doing what you love. You obviously have been given these passions for a reason. I would encourage you to have confidence in your talents and do what you love! I don't get paid to blog but I love doing it so that's enough for now.
I hope my words help you or at least give you some encouragement.
Feel free to message me anytime!

Love your sunkist look!

Prim and Pimp said...

love the hair, I can never do that braid no matter how hard I try! Ur so talented :)


Sara said...

@ Lindsey- replied on your blog :] Thank you!

@ Shellena- aw thank you love!

@ Prim and Pimp- awe, it took me forever and if she is around, I have to beg for my mom for help- she is the true pro! All those years of doing our hair (3 girls).I lack in talent with the hair department but badly want to keep learning so I can do my own at all times! Keep trying ;) Have you tried a twist in the front instead of a braid? I bet it would look adorable on you! AND it is super easy! Just lightly mist with hair spray a section of your hair (I use my side bangs) and take a little bit- twist all the way around and pin it. I do that very often, more so then braids -1 minute job!

The producers at Fox loved my performance and asked me to do another segment in studio on Monday May 23 at 8:30am. Isn't that exciting! Thank you again for coming to the grand opening last week! It was so wonderful to meet you and get to shop together a bit! I hope you found lots of great stuff to make it worth getting up so early! Hope everything is going well. Talk to ya later!

Hey lovely, thank you for the amazing comment you left me, so nice of you <3 <3 <3
I used Lady Gaga lip gloss, I am always in these nude colours, still cant get enough of nude :)

And the foundation recommendation try benefit play stick, just go to their counter and ask them to apply it, its like with lavender and green tea, perfect for summer and for the skin!!! I love it, it covers a lot, but isnt "heavy" on the skin... Plus they have a nice range of colours ;) xoxo
