EASY DIY HALLOWEEN COSTUMES

It's spooky season! Let's get a cute Halloween outfit put together. My goal with this post is to give you easily achievable costume ideas by using things that are already in your closet, or you can buy cheap from Amazon. Literally, Amazon is the best!


LEOPARD LOVER
This is always my go-to because it's cute, cheap and you can use some things that you already have. Get some ears and a tail, wear an all back outfit & call it good!

UNICORN
I got inspo from Jenna Dewan  for this one. I swear she could pull anything off! This costume looks very easy to piece together and sparkles are always fun.

1980s
You can't go wrong with a 1980s get-up! I love all of the neon.

WE'RE HEADED TO NEW MEXICO


I am so excited for this weekend! 

Connor, Keridan and I are headed to Albuquerque, New Mexico to the Balloon Festival. You might have seen me post about this lately, I hope you have! I did a full travel itinerary to help with anyone wanting to go! It covers food, drink and excellent recommendations from locals. If you're wanting to go it's never too late to start planning your trip for next year! Airbnbs will be cheap too. 

I have an Airbnb code HERE to get $$$ off of your first stay through Airbnb. 

Okay, Connor is rushing me to get this done and get out of the door because we still need to get gas and take Jenny (the puppy) to a friend's house for the weekend.

 I'll share a complete blog post covering our weekend in ALBQ within a week or so! I know y'all will want to see our photos. 

Oh! But in the mean-time check out THIS post and our new YouTube video!!

Full Face Makeup Routine with Veronica




I hope you love today's YouTube video as much as I loved filming and making it for you!

My Brayleas Bazaar Guest in September was Veronica. Veronica and I went to high school together and she has always been amazing at doing makeup. She did my makeup for prom as well as numerous other girls' hair and makeup. She's truly gifted at it. So I was like, why not bring her onto Brayleas Bazaar  (here's her guest post) and let her share some of her favorite makeup, techniques and hacks with YOU. 

I am genuinely excited about what I'm bringing you today. I know if you watch it, you will learn something new. I DID. 

Here are two things I learned by her doing my makeup in this video. 
1. Don't pick up another eyeshadow shade to blend- I have been doing this wrong for so long! 
2. When baking your face- leave the undereye baking for as long as possible (10-15 min) and wipe off the rest! 

We started off priming moisturizing the face with Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask. It is thick in consistency and is the first time I had ever used it, I loved the way it went on. 

Then we used Estee Lauder double wear foundation. I have grown to be obsessed with this foundation. It can make anyone's skin look flawless. I've heard a few people say it tends to be drying. However, I have normal to dry skin and I've noticed if I moisturize beforehand then I don't have any problems. 

Next up, my favorite concealer the Tarte shape tape, followed by another product I'd never used before the Hoola Cream-to-Powder Quickie Contour Stick. Again, I loved this product. 

Veronica used a ton of really amazing BUDGET friendly products. Which I appreciated. The budget friendly products worked as well as my more expensive products. A few budget-friendly products I'm referring to is the NYX eyebrow pencil that is $7 that is the same thing as the Anastasia Beverly Hills eyebrow pencil. Also, something that impressed me was the Banana Baking Powder that is $8. It works flawlessly. I will be making the switch to these in the future! 

My tried and trues are this foundation, this concealer  and this contour kit. Those are all repurchases, that I love.

Here is a list of every single product we used in this video.
