Last week I attended Fashion.Mission.Cause, a fun event at 1822 Boutique.  1822 Boutique, an upscale resale shop in Philly, is the perfect haven for shopoholics who love to help the community.  Every purchase helps "empower women to succeed" through programs at the Career Wardrobe!  I had so much fun meeting other bloggers and industry professionals that I didn't get a chance to take many pictures of the boutique.  But never fear, I'll be featuring them here in some upcoming posts.

I was really excited to meet Laini from Style With Laini, a style expert who had a lot of great beauty tips to share during the event and I'm going to share some of them with you! She mentioned that eyes and lips are the features that we should be highlighting when wearing makeup!

Full eyebrows are in, and luckily there isn't much I have to do to shape my own.  But there are some great products out there to create the illusion of a fuller brow.  I have Benefit's Gimme Brow that I will definitely be trying out.   But, to create a more of an arch, apply a highlighter right under the brow.  Laini tried another Benefit product on me, Watt's Up, to achieve the look but a pearl eyeshadow also works!

I've been more open to trying lipcolors lately, but I've never done much prep work.  I sampled an amazing Motives lip exfoliator and I can't believe what I've been missing.  Topped off with a toner, my lips felt so much healthier and created a smoother base to apply the color after.  And you only need to exfoliate once a week-I can handle that!! I will also be sure to use a primer and lip liner before applying gloss or lipstick.

So many great tips that I will be trying on my own.  I can't end without doing a little more shopping!  The wonderful Danielle of Ryan Madeline Jewelry has a Chloe & Isabel pop up shop and proceeds will be donated back to the Career Wardrobe!  Here are some of my favorite pieces:
How amazing are the colors on this Medina Amethyst & Turquoise Cuff!

This Pave Snake Ring is such a fun accessory to pair with boots and a moto jacket!

Love this Plum Three Row Necklace with a solid tee and jeans!

Can't wait to visit 1822 Boutique again and see what new pieces are in!
