OOTW & Mulholland Drive!

Coffee black & egg white stripes sounded minimal and comfy for this outfit of the week look.  And let’s mix in some sultry grey skies & some trail trekking.  The skies were gorgeous-ly grey that day for this OOTW fashion video shoot upon the scenic hillside of Mulholland Drive!  Comfort was on my mind for this daytime ensemble.  So I went with a textured & striped top from Zara that I love to swim in (not literally ;),IMG_0432.jpg

& grey suede “Manon” riding boots by Rosegold, to match the weather 🙂IMG_0436.jpgThis look would not have been complete without my Muskoka Nord orange agate fish necklace & Muskoka Nord Teepee choker!  I absolutely love the Native American vibes of these pieces.

Totally off topic, but I also have a thing for Swedish fish.  They are my favorite candy…like…ever!  Maybe someday they will also come out with Irish fish too? :)))))) #anIrishgirlcandreamIMG_0439.jpg

I love the big & chunky pockets on this Zara shirt.  Makes it awesome for holding things like a cell, lip balm, or….swedish fish. heheheeeIMG_0442.jpg

This look can easily be recreated to make it your own with any funk top, blue jeans, black jacket, tall boots & layering jewelry.  The beauty of fashion is that the possibilities are endless!   I hope you guys enjoyed this look and video.  Much love!! xoxo ~KelleIMG_0448.jpg

Rodan & Fields Mini Facial/First Impressions & Self-Tanning Night!

Last night was all about pampering!  It was an eventful week & weekend, and my skin was needing some serious TLC!!  In this video, I do a Rodan & Fields Mini Facial (with first impressions) & slather on some St. Tropez self-tanner.  Nothing like a spa night and tan to bring my skin back to life!  Rodan & Fields’ @FreshlyFierceFaces (on Instagram) sent me a mini-facial care package containing a few lovely skin samples.  The samples included a Micro-Dermabrasion Paste, a Night Renewing Serum Capsule, & Lip Renewing Serum Capsule.  I loved the glow the paste & serum gave my skin.  The micro-dermabrasion paste helped exfoliate my skin SO well.  Any patches of dry skin were no match for that paste! 🙂   Also enjoyed its invigorating citrus scent!  The Night Renewing serum was unlike any serum I’ve ever used.  I was expecting a gel texture, and it turned out to be a velvety soft primer-type-of-a-feel serum.  It made my skin feel unbelievable!!  The mini facial was the perfect antidote to my incredibly late work night the night before!  Over recent months, my go-to self-tanner has been by Vita Liberata.  Sadly, that bottle of tropical island tanning goodness was confiscated on a recent flight, for being too large for flight standards.  Sigh.  lol.  So, in lieu, I’ve been using what I have on hand, my St. Tropez bronzing mousse.  It provides a very natural looking tan.  I wouldn’t say it is a super dark tanner, but rather more on the natural side of tanning things. This makes for a perfect self-tanner if you have fair skin and are just wanting to go a few shades darker.  I also like that this tanner doesn’t transfer to clothing.  It is made with 100% natural tanning agents, so you don’t have to worry about any harsh chemicals being applied to your skin.  The St. Tropez tan can also be worn (freshly applied) under makeup, and it won’t make your makeup look oily, as the tanner doesn’t leave behind any film or oily residue.  Loveeeee that, because let’s face it, who has time to wait around for the tan skin to kick in before makeup application?! ;). Anywho, I hope you enjoyed the vid!  Thank you sooooo much to Alexandra Pratt @FiercelyFreshFaces for the thoughtful care package!  Much love!!  Feel free to leave me any questions you might have about the video or products mentioned.  Wishing everyone a glorious week!!! XOXO ~Kelle

NEW from Wet n Wild!

When I saw Wet N Wild’s new powder highlighters and Báton de Maquillage cream blushes & cream highlighters in drugstores, I think I went to heaven!  Like a moth to a flame, I was entranced!  So I picked up one of their new stick highlighters, a stick blush, and two of their new powder highlighters.  I was especially drawn in by the glowing floral embossing etched into the powders.  Gorgeous!!

NEW from Wet N Wild!

Every one of these items now has a cozy little spot in my makeup arsenal.  They also made an appearance in my upcoming Valentine’s Day video, so you can see a few of them in action as soon as that video goes up!

New Wet n Wild Cream Highlighter & Blush Sticks | Shade: When the Nude Strikes (left) & Peach Bums (right)

The stick Illiminateur is in the shade Win the Nude Strikes, and is the most perfect nude champagne (with soft pink undertones) cream highlighter.  I like to apply it with my Elf stipple brush.  It applies very smooth and blends into my Garnier BB Cream flawlessly.  On days I haven’t worn makeup, I’ve just brightened things up a bit by popping some of this onto my cheeks, brow bone, & inner eyes.

Wet n Wild Cream Highlighting Stick | Shade: When the Nude Strikes

The stick blush is in the shade Peach Bums and it also applies and blends like a dream.  The color is stunning and sweetens the cheeks with a gorgeous peach glow, and just a hint of sheen.  This color will look ridiculously amazing on bronzed skin!  If you are crunched for time, these sticks are a great way to achieve gorgeous glow and color quickly.

The powder highlighter in the shade Precious Petals is a gorgeous champagne (with gold iridescence).  A gentle tap in this powerful powder is all you need for a gorgeous glow. Double tap for some double-y bling bling-ing cheekbones.

Wet n Wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder | Shade: Precious Petals

If you top the When The Nude Strikes stick highlighter mentioned above, with this powder highlighter, you will have some serious wattage going on.  Precious Petals makes a stunning inner eye highlight as well.

Wet n Wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder | Shade: Precious Petals

Crown of My Canopy is a stunning rose gold powder highlighter.  Also a perfect shade for summery bronzed skin.  These powder highlighters, are rich, pigmented, blend amazingly, and look as good (or better) as any higher end highlighter out there.  Both look beautiful as an eye shadow as well.  Peachy eyes are my jam!!

These highlighters can be built up quickly into the most gorgeous metallic shades ever.

I hope Wet N Wild comes out with lots more shades of these powder highlighters and stick blushes/highlighters.  They are absolutely next level!

Doll Face Beauty Unboxing & Review! | Skincare

TGIF, my DOLL-ings!!! Spa nights should be every night with Doll Face Beauty‘s gorgeous skincare line!  Over the past three weeks or so I’ve been using the skincare products that Doll Face Beauty sent me.  I was excited to try them in hopes it would soothe my dry-as-a-bone skin 😉  I’ve learned to just roll with it. That is, roll around in hydrating products like these!! :)))

Doll Face Beauty Unboxing & Review | Skincare | Kelley Whilden

My skin responded SO well to these bottled beauties of hydration in just the first two days.  I appreciate the powerful skincare and anti-aging ingredients in this line.  I shall begin by saying that glycolic acid and hyaluronic acid are two ingredients that I swear by, and are two ingredients found in many of the Doll Face products.  Glycolic helps to exfoliate gently and keeps my skin cells turning over, while the hyaluronic packs in all of the moisture (and keeps it there even while I sleep).  Over the last year I’ve only fancied cream or oil cleansers.  What is remarkable is that the Doll Face Invigorate Triple-Action Facial gel cleanser is the first gel to not dry out my skin (even when used twice daily!).  It leaves my skin feeling  SO hydrated and refreshed. dollface-cleanser-2Invigorate is equipped with AHA’s and citrus enzymes that my skin is lovvvvvvvvving.  It smells diving and invigorates my senses first thing in the a.m.  Just a tiny drop of this foaming gel goes a longgggg way and it removes my makeup effortlessly.

When used at night, the Clarify Balancing Tonic gives my skin a glow and helps to repair my skin while I sleep.  I’ve loved this tonic so much that I’ve even used it twice a day on some days!  Love that it locks in my daily and nightly moisturizers like a dream!

The Doll Face Pretty Puff is an exfoliating sponge soaked in Konjac, rose, & other lovely skincare ingredients.  I’ve never used anything like this in my skincare regimen.  The sponge-y and squishy texture of this sponge is ever so gentle on my skin.  As the most dollface pretty puff 2.jpgrelaxing step in my weekly facial routine, I like to exfoliate with it in conjunction with the Invigorate cleanser once a week.  I’ve kept the Pretty Puff in its original packaging, so as to soak up every drop of the ingredients it came saturated in lol.

The Purify Pore Perfection Mineral Mask is a clay mask that gently tightens and firms.  When washed off, it feels as if I have just used a hydration mask.  Remarkable!  The hyaluronic hydration factor for this clay mask is next level!  I took this baby with me on my Stylus modeling trip and it was my saving grace for work and travel days! Screen Shot 2017-02-10 at 5.24.49 PM.pngdollface mask 2.jpg

Last and certainly not least, is that packaging.  It was love at first sight!!! These products would also make gorgeous Valentine’s Day gifts for that special someone.  ❤    dollface blog pic 3.jpg

Something to be noted is that I think Doll Face Beauty is a gorgeous company that not only offers lovely skincare, but also an uplifting and empowering message to young women. Companies like this are deserving of LOTS MORE LOVE.  I am so proud to introduce them to my subscribers and followers.  Be sure to follow Doll Face Beauty on Instagram & Twitter because they do lots of amazing giveaways that you won’t want to miss… #THEPOWEROFPRETTY ! Hope you enjoy this line as much as I do.  Happy weekend, DOLL-ings!!! ❤ ❤ xoxo ~Kelledoll face products 4.jpgdollface invigorate 2.jpgdoll face products 5.jpgdoll face blogg.jpg

January Favorites & My Week Modeling For Stylus!

January Favorites are here at last!  I kept them short and sweet this month.  Thought I would mention the beauty products that are relatively new in my routine over recent weeks.  First up is Wet N Wild’s nail polish in the shade YO SOY.  This very skin-toned shade of nude looks chic with any outfit/jewelry selection.  And it’s only $.99!

This is also the shade that I wore all of last week while modeling for Stylus.  The polish lasted for a solid 4 days without chipping and has become my go-to shade.  YO SOY ENAMORADO! :))))  In case you might be wondering, Stylus is a furniture line that gives you customizable options for designing your own living spaces.

January would not have been complete without Almay’s Smart Shade blush in the shade Nude.  You can wear any of the four blush shades on their own, your own combo of the four,

IMG_3517.jpg

or you can mix them altogether as one shade (my preferred application method).  This dusty, cool-toned pinky mauve shade is SO flattering on the skin.  I especially love wearing it with a smoky eye.  One of the best blushes I have ever used!

Mi amor for Essence’s Roses & Bronze palettes also began in December.

How is it possible that a palette in the drugstore $5 per-palette-affordability-range be THIS good!?

img_6577
Swatches of Essence Roses palette

The shades are SO buttery, creamy, & smooth, that a primer is unnecessary!  That is, except for the matte shades.  If I wear the matte shades, I apply a satin shade first to act as a primer for the mattes & to prevent streakiness.  These are definitely A+++ palettes for the outstanding quality and low price tag.

A skincare love is Deciem’s Hylamide C25 Vitamin C Booster Serum.  The texture applies like a slightly slippy gel primer.  Upon application, the serum dries down but not all the way.  After topping it with my moisturizer, it makes my skin feel quenched.  It also makes my skin look brighter when I wake up in the morning.  LOVE IT.

The Urban Decay Illuminated Highlighter Trio was also a favorite of mine in January.  The shades do contain micro-shimmer glitter.  I don’t find the glitter to be too chunky or bothersome.  These highlighters look gorgeous on the skin both day and night.

The champagne shade called Oasis (middle shade), is more of a skin-enhancing powder than it is a bright highlight.  I think it looks stunning for a skin brightening pick-me-up.  My favorite way to wear these highlighters is by mixing the golden bronze shade called Pyrite,

mixed with the peachy Twilight shade.

img_6526
Urban Decay’s Illuminated Trio Twilight shade looks gorgeous mixed with Pyrite from the palette. Perfect for a sun goddess look!

The result is the most gorgeous Peach Bronze highlight ever!!!  Honestly, it is the perfect cheekbone alchemy for spring/summer tan goddess skin.  The Pyrite/Twilight combo looks just as amazing on fair skin (light-handed application recommended).   The brush that is included is AMAZE and purrrfect for traveling.  The bristles are incredibly soft & makes a stellar contour brush for the nose as well!

So that pretty much sums things up for my favorites!  Hope you guys enjoy them.  Please let me know if you are loving any of the products I’ve mentioned, as I would love to hear your thoughts on how they are doing for you.  Have a rockin week, my loves!! ❤ ❤ ~Kelle
