Time in a bottle: January 2017 favorites


January is my birthday month, and all I wanted to do this year is put on a velvet robe and celebrate with my family. Here are a few styles that I adore. 


Toast Silk Velvet Kimono Robe 

My other favorite is the Jonquil Stormy Skies Robe, but  only one size is left. I also like the Jonquil Peacock Long Velvet Robe.  All of these could be sold out at the time of this post, but it's easy to find a good velvet robe for a decent price. 

                                       Makeup inspirations:

                                    Christy Turlington 

Baby doll makeup by Jenny Bowker


                                         Inspired by spring. 



                                 Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Toit

                                           A garden on the roof. 


                                 Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Nil

                                    A garden on the Nile.


                                               Skin care:

                                             Pixi Double Cleanse
                                  The Korean skin care method.

                              Glossier Priming Moisturizer Rich



Clinique Chubby in the Nude Foundation Stick



I skipped this step. Most foundations sticks double as

 concealer for me.  


Wet n Wild Rose Champagne


NYX Duo Chromatic in Snow Rose


Revlon Colorstay Creme Eyeshadow in Caramel #710

Use this with the brush it comes with and not your

 fingers. This is such a good metallic golden bronze. 


Black shadow from the Tarte Tartlette palette 

L'Oreal Infallible Lacquer Liner in Espresso #173

Espresso is on the brown black side when most

 brown liners are paler and weak in pigment. L'Oreal

 did well with this shade. 


Clinique High Impact

Lip products:

Maybelline Inti-Matte Nudes in Almond Rose

Bobbi Brown Art Stick in Rich Nude

Sometimes I mixed either of these with the 


 Baby Lips Color Balm Crayon in Toasted Taupe

Cherry Chapstick for the most natural lip color. 

  Nail Colour:

Essie Gel Couture in Lace Me Up from the Ballet 

Nudes collection.
