FOTD + Style Bits: Visart, Kaplan MD and a Harem Jumpsuit for the Win(dy)

Above: Products used in this FOTD.
Happy weekend, lovelies!  Now that I am back home from my travels and nearly settled in, I am thrilled to share a fresh FOTD, featuring one splendid eyshadow palette, a new lip duo and a most magnificent jumpsuit...all converging on an extremely windy balcony.

Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of the products in action as well as the Bottom Line...

For this look, I aimed to channel an early 1970's vibe...I took cues from the films Love Story and  Shampoo to create a breezy aesthetic that is equal parts earthy and sophisticated. 

Products Used:
Style Bits:
Above: The Viseart Eyeshadow Palette in Sultry Muse is all sorts of wonderful...the 12 shades provide endless warm, satin-infused looks.  Here are the four hues I used for the eye look below.  I am completely in love with the Viseart line these days!
Above: The full eye look...a burnished rosy bronze with a delicate (read: NOT shimmery) sheen.
Above: Drama. 
Above: My latest lipmix from Kaplan MD...these moisturizing shades are subdued while instantly increasing lip fullness.  What an auspicious discovery.
Above: Candy pink well-executed.
Above: Swatches of Kaplan MD Peach and Candy Sparkle in direct sunlight.  The Peach lip color has a velvety smooth texture and a soft pearl finish.  The Candy Sparkle gloss is plush and decidedly non-sticky...simply lovely!

Bottom Line:  I hope you enjoyed this FOTD and would love to know which products might have caught YOUR eye...Visart?  Kaplan MD?  Do you happen to love jumpsuits as much as I do?

Good things ahead, including a Skincare Round II post, a haircare-centric piece, a travel feature and a host of fresh product procurements.  I officially finish teaching for the summer next week and am working through your lovely comments and email as I attempt to wrap up the school year in a comprehensive and cohesive fashion.  In the meanwhile, thank for your patience and support!
Have a superb weekend...xx,

  1. You look beautiful, as always! I am so tempted by the Visearts palettes, but wish I could see them and play with them in person before I purchase one. I love your necklace! Who is it by?

    1. Thanks so much, Tatiana! I highly recommend the Viseart palettes...will be sharing complete swatches of the Mattes and Sultry Muse soon ; ) My necklace is by Charles's a collar that I picked up while out of town!
