Elopement Boho Styled Shoot at Stone Mountain Park with Sabrina Fattal Photography and Corianne Elizabeth.Read More
As a beauty professional, I most certainly have items in my kit that are staples. Meaning, no matter what other products come my way, they will forever be in my kit (unless the company decides to change the formula, which unfortunately happens sometimes). That being said, I am still on the lookout for new goodies, especially due to the fact I go through so much product, so quickly.
With summer fast approaching, this is a time I really keep my eye out for new products. Many cosmetic brands release summer collections and it's a great opportunity to try out new things!
Tom Ford is a favorite of mine. Between the luxurious brushes and the texture of the eyeshadow . . . Love them! I knew Tom Ford would be putting out a summer collection so I had been on the lookout for the new product. I'm typically not one to buy things once they hit the website, because I like to do my research. I finally decided what items I wanted from the collection based on the needs of my clients, work I have coming up, and things I personally want to try out.
One of the products I chose to try it is their Bronzing Primer. This product simply intrigues me. I think it would be great for a "no-makeup" makeup look; to warm up fair skin; and even to brighten caramel complexions.
I also decided on their Bronzing Powders as well. This comes in Gold Dust, Terra and Bronze Age. Now, I am not one to use bronzers to contour, I simply use them to add warmth to the face (and sometimes the body). Often time with bronzers, I think they are too orange or they have too many shimmery particles in them, so I'm looking forward to testing these on myself and my #corianneelizabethbrides.
I also grabbed the Cream and Powder Eye Colors in the shades Naked Bronze, Black Oyster and Golden Peach. These are eye color duos that offer a metallic cream eyeshadow paired with a sparkling powder. I love the concept, because I think the duo with help provided just the right amount of dimension.
The Shimmering Body Oil I just had to have. I personally like to use shimmering body oils in the summer for a night out; plus they are great to have in the kit for photo shoots. I'm not sure if this is something I will use on my brides. It will depend on how it dries and sets on the skin.
Do any of these items peak your interest? If so, which one?! I will definitely update on how these products work out. I'm hoping each of them is a keeper!
Stay beautiful! . . . Inside and out.
One of the things I love the most about doing photo shoots is working with other creative people. Recently I did a shoot with Michelle Scott Photography and the stylist for the shoot was Icon Stylist. I had a bit of a chat with her about styling and how to make some changes with my wardrobe and personal style; she suggested jewelry. Fast forward 4 months and I was introduced to Rocksbox!
Now to tell you a bit more about me, my wardrobe is very basic when it comes to color. I'm talking black, white, grey and beige/nude colors. And to be honest I love it, yet I also felt it needed a little something. But shopping for jewelry kind of overwhelms me. I didn't know where to start, what would look good, or even what is practical when I'm working (because though I like to look of 8 bangles, when I'm doing someone's makeup, it is highly annoying).
You know how there are all those subscription makeup companies where you pay a certain amount each month and they send you new stuff to try? Well, Rocksbox is somewhat similar. It is a monthly subscription, however, it allows you the opportunity to borrow the jewelry and decide if it is something you want to keep!
What I like the most about Rocksbox is the sets that are sent to me, are picked just for me. I don't get the same 3 pieces of jewelry everyone else does. I filled out a questionnaire and even created a "Wishlist" that my stylist works from! I was quite excited when I received my 1st box. Not only was the shipping super quick, but the packaging is so cute!
In my first box, I received one set of earrings and 2 necklaces, along with a note from my stylist Eleanor. The earrings were a gold pair of ear climbers from Gorjana (pictured above). I love this style and am ready to try more like this.
The thing that made me really appreciate the service Rocksbox provided, was the piece I thought I would love, I didn't like so much once I put it on. The necklace pictured about from Soko it gorgeous, but I wasn't particular about how it looked on me.
My favorite piece was one I wasn't so sure about when I opened my box. But let me tell you! . . . This necklace from Perry Street is perfect for so many looks! I love that I can wear it with jeans and a tank top, but that it will look great with a black or white sundress! This one is definitely a keeper!
I'm excited to send my box back (without the Kira Necklace) and get my new set! Rocksbox, also gives you an opportunity to give feedback on what you are sent, so I'll be doing that tonight! Rocksbox has jewelry from Kendra Scott, Loren Hope and Margaret Elizabeth (just to name a few), so I'm ready for new items from my list!
I think it's perfect for me because I can now figure out what my style is and try so many new things! If you want to try out the Rocksbox subscription, use the code: "corianneelizabethmakeupxoxo" which gives you 1 month free! When you do try it out, tell me what you think about your 1st box!
Stay beautiful! . . . Inside and out.
