Ah, vacation. I have been home in the valley for a week to visit my family and see some friends before school starts and although I worked from home at the end of the week, it was really relaxing. I’m lucky to have jobs that are so accommodating to my schedule!
Last night, some of my friends and I headed to Boston Pizza for Fishbowl Friday and then back to my house for a midnight swim. Fishbowl Friday in the valley is a must and it was a ton of fun. I knew I wanted to do something very summery and bronzy on my face, and I am really happy with how my look turned out. I recently got the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette and I haven’t used anything else to do my eyeshadow since I got it. It’s easy to use and I love how warm-toned the palette is. I also did my sister and friend’s makeup last night and it turned out really beautiful.
