I don’t watch much television, but I have caught a glimpse of HGTV’s newest hit show, The Fixer Upper. There are probably many reasons why this show is so popular. I was struck by Joanna Gaines’ unique style and I have a small girl crush on her. She will never trump my first girl crush, Megyn Kelly, but I have no desire to copy Megyn’s current hair and makeup. Joanna’s style is about as refreashing and unique as the way she styles the beautiful houses on the show. I did a quick google search and right away the search revealed what makeup she wears. Two items in particular, her lipstick (MAC Fresh Brew) and her signature blush (Lancôme Mocha Havana). I thought well that doesn’t sound so complicated and it might be cool to give it a try. I certainly don’t have time to pick up a multitude of new products but a quick trip into Macy’s and I could pick up both those things in one full swoop. The person at the makeup counter said I sounded like one of the most decisive customers she has ever met. I actually would have NEVER in a million years picked the lipstick or the blush, but I really really like the look.
I copied her effortless style by buying a pair of silver circle hoops for $9.99 at Nordstrom Rack. I bought the lace dress at a neighborhood online boutique for $18.00 and already had a jean jacket. The bracelet was from Richardson Merchabtile for $12.00. It definitely reminded me of her style.
