This has to be up there with one of my all time favorite MA one-pieces, hands down .. defiantly a head turner.
I wanted to show you how I would style this kini during the day, after the beach/pool or whatnot. Keep it extremely simple with a pair of high waisted denim shorts (light or dark wash - no bright colors) and a pair of Cons and you’re off.
For the evening, which is always more fun to experiment with, I would pair this mesh beauty with high waisted, light wash boyfriend/baggy Levi’s, leather jacket, simple black or nude pump and very light makeup or none for that matter .. can ruin a look in an instant so keep it minimal.
Here are my beauty products I can not live without. I know you all know I’m not huge on makeup but I’m defiantly for less is more so I like a good bronzer, blush, balm and mascara. All for a good lash, bushy brow and luscious lip.
It’s been a rare occurrence to see a beauty post on Keller Rose up until a lot of you started asking beauty related questions so I thought I would just throw it all out there and show you my top essentials.
On a daily basis I go for less is more which means I wash my hair every morning with OGX coconut water shampoo/conditioner and use my coconut oil as a body wash and cream for shaving. I live and die by this 365 organic coconut oil and another favorite is COCOOIL for hair and body. Yes, 365 is from Whole Foods .. yes, you can eat it or throw it in your tea like I do .. yes, you can cook with it .. yes, you can use it for your body and hair .. yes, you can bring it in the bedroom (your man will thank you, trust me) .. I could keep going on but I pretty much use it for everything, I guess you can call it a slight addiction. Ladies, all I’m saying is to go out and buy any kind of organic coconut oil and it will change your life, simple as that. I also exfoliate every morning with my Clarisonic and I know some people say you should only do it three or whatever times a week but this works for me so I’m sticking to it and I only use the wash it comes with when I’m traveling due to its miniature size, instead I op for my RXsystemspf face wash. I’m all into products that contain SPF so Maybelline’s baby lips balm SPF 20 is a favorite and the blue is by far the best one and not all have SPF so make sure you check if you’re a weirdo like me. Also, another product I use daily is my ROC daily moisturizer that I put on my chest because it’s the one place that decides to burn on my body and on top of my hands because that’s the #1 place women get skin cancer and I only use it on my face if I’m laying out because my daily powder has SPF 20 in it and I don’t like putting lotion on as a primer before applying because who likes blotchy skin?
For my daily makeup regimen I only use my Neutrogena mineral sheer powder (tan 80) and a bit of mascara if I have meetings but besides that I like my face to breath and not look cakey so this powder does the trick and makes your face look like porcelain. I’m huge into eyebrows, love a thick bushy brow and very much dislike plucked, skinny brows .. I don’t even remember the last time I plucked my brows besides a wild hair here and there but getting back to my point .. I live and die again by Maybelline’s clear mascara, it holds your brow in place while keeping shape.
For those nights out on the town with my girls or I would say dates with my love too but he hates when I wear makeup so night out with my babes it is .. I wear my NARS Laguna bronzer and Unlawful blush that I apply both with my Eco Tools brush (purchase from Walgreens or Target) and top it off with my Fresh sugar lip balm. I love this balm because it gives your lip color without getting on your teeth or your mans lips, just not into anything that prevents me from kissing him, just takes away from the fun in my mind. For the dramatic part of my look which is still pretty minor in my perception is my mascara, all for mascara and long, thick lashes; I’m obsessed with Urban Decay’s mascara that doubles with primer, it’s beyond .. nothing lengthens more than this magic, highly suggest purchasing if you’re into mascara.
Before bed, no makeup or makeup .. I always wash my face with Neutrogena’s makeup remover cleansing towelettes .. I’ve been using them since I was 13 or something and they always do the trick. I see my girlfriends using the damn liquid that they put on a cotton pad or gross towel and it kills me so that’s when I introduce them to these glorious pads and yes they change lives. If you’re the lazy type or don’t have time then these are the call and again you can purchase at Walgreens or Target, always into good beauty bargains that actually work.
Hope this helped answer any questions and I wish I could say I would make this a common thing but when I find products I like and that work for me I don’t deviate so time will tell when another beauty post comes a long ..
You all know from my Instagram that I was away on a birthday getaway with my handsome man at the dreamy Korakia Pensione in Palm Springs. Honestly, it was the most magical place and I’ve been to a lot of B&B’s and boutique hotels around the world and this place has seem to beat them all and yes it helped that I was with the love of my life. If you’re looking for a relaxing and romantic getaway with your man or just a fun retreat with a group of non rowdy girls then this is your destination and it so happens to transport you to Morocco if you think it couldn’t get any better.
Paulette, we will be back soon .. very soon!
For my looks in the desert I kept it casual and minimal, more like I had to change out of my kini for dinner so I put on the smallest thing I could possibly find which was this insane crochet top by Aussie label, Sabo Skirt. This is the first piece from our collaboration and I’m psyched because I’m a huge fan!
Also, heading to Colorado on the 23rd where I’ll be shooting activewear for you guys. Wanted to start something fresh and also bring in a different niche of companies because I’ve been getting a lot of you asking what I wear while working out and during yoga so now I’m answering your questions ..
