A Bold Lip with E.L.F Cosmetics

It's been so long since my last beauty post so I'm pretty excited to be sharing this one with you guys today! I'm working with  E.L.F cosmetics to share a beauty look perfect that is perfect for the Holiday season! 

I started off with a clean face and applied my normal moisturizer. After that, I used the E.L.F Mineral face primer to ensure that my makeup would last and look its best. After that I applied my normal foundation, concealer, and powder. I talked about my everyday makeup routine in this post if you want to learn more about my normal beauty products! 

For my eyes, I used the colors 'champagne' and 'lt. bronze' from my favorite palette followed by two coats of the best  mascara from Bobbi Brown. I used this  bronzer/highlight dual palette from E.LF. to create a shimmery holiday look and then finished off the look with this matte  lip pencil with 'rich red'

Holiday Look with Sweetest Stitch

I hope everyone had a relaxing holiday weekend - I just back to school last night and I'm gearing up for a busy last two weeks of the semester before I'm back home for winter break! It's so crazy to think how fast the semester went by and how quickly Christmas is approaching! When I was home, my family and I put up our lights, decorated the Christmas tree, and blasted the Micheal Buble Christmas album (tons of hot cocoa was involved). It's safe to say that I'm 100% in holiday mode - if only I didn't have 5 finals to stress about!

Today I am sharing an outfit that is a quintessential holiday look! You can't go wrong with green and red this time of the year! If you follow me on snapchat or Instagram (@belleadore) then you might remember that I attended the grand opening for a Richmond boutique called  Sweetest Stitch! I went with my friends Lauren and PJ and we had so much fun shopping, socializing, and snacking on some delicious sweets! If you are in the area, I highly recommend checking it out. They have tons of cute new arrivals that will make perfect additions to your winter wardrobe! Niki, the owner of Sweetest Stitch, and I partnered up to share a holiday inspired look that is perfect for any parties, dinners, or social events you have coming up!

This lacy, bell sleeved  dress immediately caught my eye when I saw it in the store! I loved the color,  lace, and details around the neck - so cute! I paired the  dress with a simple pair of  black heels, a  gold clutch,  black earrings, and a bold red lip! 

While this look might be on the fancier side, what better time to dress up than the holidays?!

Ultimate Black Friday Sales


Happy Friday everyone! I hope everyone had a relaxing Thanksgiving! I spent yesterday helping my dad cook dinner for about 20 people who came over to our house and I'm still stuffed from all the food I ate:)! Last year was the first year that I did Black Friday shopping in stores and I honestly didn't think it was worth waking up early because it was so crowded, I couldn't concentrate on getting gifts, and I was exhausted! So this year I opted out of it and I've been shopping the sales online! But, I do encourage all of you to go out tomorrow and support the small businesses in your area for Small Business Saturday! I'm excited to go back to work tomorrow at the boutique I've been at for the past few years! 

 For those of you who are shopping from home (hopefully snuggled up watching the Gilmore Girls revival) this year, I've rounded up some of the best sales happening as well as some picks that I think would be great for gifts or a little treat for yourself! Happy Shopping!
