On Location Style + Beauty: FBF by Checka Nagare Wrap and Neutrals from MAC and Guerlain

Above: FBF by Check Nagare Wrap.
Last week, I spent sometime on the coast of Central California (detailed HERE); this gorgeous stretch of land and sea afforded me the perfect opportunity to wear (yet again!) my *Nagare Wrap from the emerging independent line FBF by Checka.  Currently in the midst of a Kickstarter campaign (contribute and get a FBF by Checka tank top), this brand, designed by LA local Francesca Skwark, features creative pieces with a casual flair.   Inspired by the streamlined genius of this particular wrap–note the black, white and gray color palette, flowing lines and unique layered cut–I coupled it with curated neutral makeup favorites for a breezy take on coastal style.
Kindly scroll on for more images, beauty details, swatches and the products in action as well as the Bottom Line…
Above: Worn with a simple black tank, Rag and Bone Dre Boyfriend Jeans (reviewed HERE) and some black Ash high tops, the Nagare Wrap exudes casual chic.
Above: It’s an excellent summer wrap for cooler mornings and breezy afternoons.

Beauty Details:

Above: Products for a pared down and neutral look.
Since I was technically camping at Limekiln, I kept my beauty look pared down and focused on neutrals, the likes of which included:

Above: Although it was overcast, the UV rays were strong–I combatted potential damage with the Amore Pacific Resort Collection Sun Protection Stick SPF 50.  Great for touchups on the go, the stunning gold tube can be easily tossed into a handbag.
Above: Some simple MAC neutrals…Soft and Gentle and Cherish.
Above: A swatch of MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle…this highlighter holds its own amongst many more expensive versions I own.
Above: MAC Cherish brings me back to my college days…I don’t know why it took me so long to return to this subtle yet pigmented nude!

Bottom Line: I hope you enjoyed this on-location style and beauty post and, if you like to cocoon yourself in soft fabric, I encourage you to take a peek at the Nagare Wrap.  I love to support independent brands whenever possible, especially when the style resonates with my own aesthetic and as aforementioned, FBF by Checka is in the final two weeks of a Kickstarter campaign

Good things ahead, including a fresh style-centric post and my comprehensive Nordstrom Anniversary Sale shopping guide, slated to go live tomorrow (Thursday, June 9th)…in the meanwhile, here are some important dates to keep in mind:
