OSCAR STYLE: ACCESSORIZE IT!

With all of the 2016 Oscars handed out, and another round of red carpet style wrapped up, it’s time to talk about our favourite looks. More specifically, the gorgeous accessories! After admiring the stars’ dresses, I love checking out their extravagant jewels (I’m an earrings and bold rings kinda gal). Your accessories are the perfect place to inject some personality to your ensemble, so I was thrilled to see the ladies rocking some very unique pieces and fun new ways to sparkle.

From Olivia Munn’s wrap-around bracelet, to Whoopi Goldberg’s octopus ring, and Brie Larson’s delicate jeweled hair clips, there was definitely a playful element to the accessories worn by these leading ladies. And I can’t forget to mention Charlize Theron’s eye-catching lariat bling that perfectly accented the deep v of her gorgeous, red dress. But, I think my favourite accessories of the night were Saoirse Ronan’s stunning, green dangling earrings. There’s something about rich, emerald jewelry that gets me every time!

Jesse’s Girl Nail Polish in Pin-Up Girl
This is the second Jessie’s Girl product that I’ve received in my Ipsy bags (the last was an eye shadow primer that you can see here). I was a big fan of the primer, so I was excited to see their name on another on of my goodies. This is quickly becoming one of my favourite polishes – it’s super shiny, and this shade of pink will look good on anyone! I’ve had it on for about a week now, with very minimal chips (score!),

Pacifica Power Of Love Lipstick in Nudie Red
Not only does this lipstick slide over your lips like a dream, this little tube packs a powerful message. With the idea that lipstick can change the world, for every lipstick purchased, Pacifica will give one to a woman in need.

Peony Cosmetics Shadow Trio
I was hoping this month’s bag would yield something sparkly for the holidays, and this shadow trio definitely delivered! The bronze shade adds the perfect touch of glimmer, and the kaolin clay helps absorb excess oils, so your party look will last all night long…dancing and all.

Lather Honey Moisture Mask
Truth be told, I have yet to use this mask. After indulging in treats over the holidays, my skin has been breaking out. When that happens, I go for something with astringent properties. But I’m excited to have this mask in my arsenal for when the cold winter weather starts to dry out my skin. I’m sure it will work wonders! Have you tried this mask yet? Let me know if you liked it!

Klorane Floral Water Makeup Remover
I can always use more eye makeup remover – it’s one of the products I use in my daily cleansing routine, so I go through it very quickly. I swapped this product for my regular version, and was pleasantly surprised. It wasn’t greasy and it removed my mascara with ease. I’ll be using this one until it’s all gone!
