👰💍7 Awesome Wedding Nail Designs
The key to having perfect nails on your wedding day is to pick something that will accent your dress and your wedding theme without distracting from them. The most common wedding nail looks are matte-white nails or a classic French manicure. However, if you’re looking for something that will spice up your nails, here are seven awesome nail looks perfect for any wedding.
Glossy white. You can’t go wrong with this color. Glossy white on the right nail shape can pull your bridal look together. Especially if your dress is unique or over-the-top, you may want to opt for a more understated nail look.
French tips and florals. This look combines classic French tips with a little visual interest. Four of your fingers will have timeless French tips, while your ring finger will have a little bit of extra design. This design can be florals, or it can be a more modern pattern if that fits your wedding theme better.
Nude pink with crystals. Nothing says wedding like crystals, and this nude pink look with a little bit of bling is perfect. Having gems only on a couple of your fingers will give you an interesting nail look without distracting from the rest of your attire.
Gloss white with crystals. This look is so fun and fresh because it is a twist on the classic French tips, and it adds a little bit of sparkle. These nails feature an ombre nude-to-white base with crystals laid on top of the nails.
Decorated French ombre. This nail look is similar to another bridal look, but the difference is the shape of the nails. Nail shape can add so much interest to the design without changing much else, and these are a good example of that. These nails feature an ombre from nude-to-white, and the middle finger features crystals.
Shades of pink and glitter. If you love all things pink, then this nail design is perfect for you. This design features several different shades of pink, from a dusty rose to a light magenta, and they’re all in a slight ombre. To add more interest, glitter is embedded in the gloss of four of the nails.
Pink and silver sparkle. Finally, you can go with an almost-white pink look with one glittery nail. This look also features sparkles around all ten of your cuticles to tie all of the nails together.
When choosing a nail look for your wedding day, you want to focus on something that will not only add a little bit of interest to your big day but also accent your dress rather than distract from it. These seven nail looks are perfect for drawing just the right amount of attention to your nails without overshadowing the rest of your bridal look.
The Ordinary Empties and final thoughts!
I believe it’s been almost 10 months of me using The Ordinary products and wow! I can’t believe so much time has passed! These 3 products are the very first products I ever bought to try and here’s what I think! The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% This serum I would buy again and again. And I do! I’m on my 3rd bottle! Because I usually wear glasses, my nose gets really really oily under the nose pieces which causes them to slide around my face A LOT. After using this serum, I’ve noticed that I really don’t get oily in that spot anymore thank god! My T zone is balanced and because of my oil production going down, I’ve also noticed my pores around my nose have shrunk dramatically. The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 This one I’m really on the fence about. I have definitely seen improvement in my face in terms of “wrinkles” which really were just a way of my face telling me I needed more moisture! However, the formula is soooo tacky that when I try to use it during the day it makes my sunscreen pill no matter how long I wait for it to settle in. Even though I hate the tackiness, I still bought a 2nd bottle! The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG There’s nothing wrong with this product. I just feel like it didn’t do much for me! I got it to help with my dark under eyes and puffiness but I don’t think it did much. If it did do anything, it was too gradual of a change for me to notice. Also, does anyone know what all this buildup is around the cap??? I guess we will see how long it takes me to realize it did help and I run to get a new bottle! For now, I think one bottle of this was enough for me.
My Top 3 Favourite Lip Combos
I have tried so many different lip products and combos, and these 3 combos are definitely my favourite at the moment! All these products are long wearing and look amazing on the lips. Lip Combo #1: KKW Beauty Nude 1 Lip Liner + Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lipstick I’m a huge fan of rosy nude lips and the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow talk lipstick is perfect! I like to pair it with the KKW Nude 1 liner because this liner acts as a sort of contour for the lips since it’s darker and more brown than the lipstick. KKW BEAUTY - KKW BEAUTY Nude Lip Liner Charlotte Tilbury - Hot Lips Lipstick Lip Combo #2: KKW Nude 1 Lip Liner + KKW Nude 1 Lipstick This has been my go to nude lip for a while now! I could never find the “perfect nude” that worked for my skin tone, and finally I’m so glad that I did. This combo is the perfect light nude shade and is perfect for everyday wear. It goes with any makeup look too! KKW BEAUTY - KKW BEAUTY Nude Lip Liner KKW BEAUTY - Nude Crème Lipstick Lip Combo #3: Kylie Cosmetics Kylie Lip Kit (Lip Liner + Matte Liquid Lip) There’s no denying the fact that Kylie Jenners pout is iconic. So what better way to achieve her go to lips than actually use her go to lip products!? The “Kylie” Lip Kit is her go to (hence the name haha) it’s the perfect pink nude and makes your lips look super plump because of the darker lipliner that comes in the kit. The pairing of the darker lip liner with the pink nude liquid lip contours your lips for that Kylie pout effect! KYLIE COSMETICS - KYLIE COSMETICS Matte Liquid Lipstick
My Everyday Makeup Routine!

My Basic Steps for a good everyday look are in order from 1. Brows 2. Concealer (I pack on a bit more for extra coverage) 3. Contour (Using a darker concealer) 4. Baking (Using a dry beauty blender, this will help keep my makeup on all day!) 6. Contour (This sets the darker concealer/contour shade) 7. Highlight 8. Lashes 9. Gloss of choice (preferable nude or clear to keep it neutral for me) 10. And boom! An everyday glam look!

Dermatologist tips on pores!
FACTS ABOUT PORES: Pore size is affected by: ✔️ Age ✔️ Sun exposure overtime ✔️ Genetics ✔️ Skin type For these reasons, it is not possible to shrink pores, but these products can help minimize the appearance of pores (I listed different options to choose from in each category. One from each category is all that would be needed): 1. Sunscreen ✔️ SPF 30 or higher in the morning, reapply every 2 hours (can use setting powder to reapply!) CeraVe - Face Sheer Tint Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 30 LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios Ultra Fluid Face Lotion SPF 50+ Supergoop! - 100% Mineral Invincible Setting Powder SPF 45 2. Salicylic acid cleanser ✔️ Once a day ✔️ Treatment for acne CeraVe - Salicylic Acid Facial Cleanser THE inkey LIST - Salicylic Acid Acne + Pore Cleanser 3. Retinoids/retinol ✔️ Takes ~12 weeks to see an effect ✔️ Treatment for acne ❗️Acne may get worse before it gets better ❗️Only at night, must wear sunscreen during the day ❌ Avoid in pregnancy and breastfeeding DIFFERIN - 0.1% Adapalene Acne Treatment Gel Pump LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Adapalene Gel .01% Topical Retinoid Acne Treatment ❗️Sensitive skin may not be able to use salicylic acid cleanser and retinol/retinoid together at night (may be too irritating) ✔️ For sensitive skin: can consider salicylic acid cleanser in the morning & retinol/retinoid at night It can take weeks to months to start noticing a difference, patience is 🔑 What works to help decrease the appearance of your pores?

Dermatologist opinion: caffeine eye cream
THE inkey LIST - Caffeine Eye Cream Why I like the Inkeylist caffeine eye cream: ✔️ Lightweight texture blends very easily ✔️ Hydrating ✔️ Can help reduce puffiness ✔️ Antioxidant ingredients help fight off free radicals from the sun and pollution ✔️ Can help improve the appearance of dark circles ✔️ Fragrance free- no smell to it! ✔️ Affordable ✨ It is one of my favorite go-to eye creams because of the caffeine which really helps with my puffy eyes in the morning and has helped with my dark circles. I also really like that it blends in easily, is fragrance free, and affordable. I like using this once a day in the morning but this can be used twice a day. I like using it in the mornings because it really helps with my puffy eyes (which is worse in the morning for me!). I notice an immediate effect on the puffiness around my eyes. It took a few weeks to notice the improvement on my dark circles. What do you think about this eye cream? Comment below!
