Spring Poka Dots

I love anything that is different. This low and high sheer top adds chic style to any wardrobe. I found this top at TJ Maxx for less than $20. Love it. I wore it to work. It's so stylish and will certainly turn heads!

I paired this with some basic black pants and nude heel sandals. There is no need to add a lot of assesories, the
shirt speaks for itself.

The shirt has what I call bat wings and a cute button in the back for added drama. See pictures below.

My favorite concealers!

Warm months for most of us means less make up and more skin. With that being said who doesn't want perfect skin. These are the days that I consistently rock my concealer only method. Meaning I only use concealer to even out my skin tone, cover blemishes, and dark circles. Concealer is a must have for anyone interested in a perfect natural look. Below are detailed descriptions of my favorite concealers.

 1. MAC Prolong Wear NW 35 ($17.00) - I love this concealer. It's provides medium coverage and last for up to 15 hours. The product is build-able, easy to blend, and works well with other products. The container is glass and the pump can be a little messy at times. However, a little goes a long way. I like to use this concealer under my eyes especially for work and long meeting days when  I will not have time to touch up my makeup. The product tries quickly so you have to work fast. You can apply it with your fingers or with a brush. I prefer a brush. It truly last all day!

2. MAC Select Cover NW 35 ($17.00)- This concealer offers light coverage. In my opinion it also brightens. I use it under my eyes for a semi Kim Kardashian look. This product gives a very dewy finish and works best for normal to dry skin. Its a liquid formula and applies very easily to the skin. You can apply it with your finger or a brush. The product is build-able and works well alone or with other products.

3. MAC Studio Finish NW 35 ($17.00) - This concealer provides heavy coverage. It covers severe dark circles and pimples with ease. This product is very intense and can be cakey if you apply to much. However, with proper application it can provide a very nice finish to the skin. You will need to set this concealer with a powder so that it can stay in place. Photographs well and can also provide a very natural finish. Sometimes I do add a brightening concealer on top of this product to highlight the under eye area.

 4. NYX HD Concealer  Tan ($4.99) - This product brightens the under eye area with ease. The concealer also works well with MAC concealers. It offers light coverage and can be used as a eye brow highlighter. I use this product almost daily for a quick and easy "bright eyed" look. The price point isn't bad either. I purchased this online at for $4.99. This color is a little lighter than my skin tone so I primarily use it to highlight and brighten my eyes.
