Rainy Day in Dallas: Beauty + Style Details

Above: The bulk of my beauty products the past few days.
Happy weekend, lovelies! Between work and travel, this week has been an utter blur.  Consequently, I have pared down my beauty routine the past couple of days, which has been a great time saver while I’ve been exploring Dallas. This brief post is dedicated to the key products I’ve been using, with a splash of style towards the end!  The rainy day conditions yesterday were an amusing change, but I concede that I miss the glory of direct, natural sunlight, especially when capturing swatches ; 0 
Kindly scroll on for more details and images of the product in action as well as the Bottom Line…
Above: I picked up the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal at the Sephora VIB sale (discussed HERE)…no regrets whatsoever!
Products Used:
Above: The Chikuhodo GSN 04 brush is divine.
Above: The Gucci Luxe Finishing Powder in 040 (not 060 as it says in the swatches…oops!) is marvelous for NC 25 skin.  Splendid packaging, effective brush…absolutely perfect in every way!
Above: Swatches in indoor lighting (please note, it was a rainy day!)
Above: Swatches by a window.
The following images reflect the products in action in various lighting situations…

Above: The By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Bronze Moon + Brown Perfection on the lids…once applied, this duo does not budge!

Outfit Details:

Bottom Line: I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into my routine this week and would love to know what products you’ve been embracing as of late. 
Good things ahead, including a beauty + skincare travel packing list, some new product procurements and even more foundation! As aforementioned, due to my current travels, I am working on responding to email and comments as quickly as my schedule allows ; ) 
Hope your weekend is off to a lovely start!

    Ditto re: hair routine, and I also have a newbie question…when using cream blushes (as I only use) are you able to blend with a natural hair brush? I mostly just use my fingers so was wondering about how well the natural hair brush would work to distribute the product…thanks!

      Hair routine, duly noted ; ) With regards to your question, I generally apply cream blush with my fingers and then do a final buffing with a natural hair brush for a seamless finish!

      I hope that helps…xx,

    Perfect! Love the makeup, love the outfit! Can you tell me where you purchased the necklace? Love it!

      Thank you, Anon! With regards to your question, my necklace is an antique and, as far as I know, one of a kind as it was a family estate piece that I procured in Arizona.
