Hi friends, I can’t believe that September is already coming to an end, it feels like just yesterday I was starting Sophomore year and pulling you my bathing suits. Now I’m packing away my sandals andknee-deep in homework. This month was a huge one for styledbymckenz. Not only did I hit 1,200 Instagram followers, I hit 550 blog followers, and reached 50,000 views total on my site. I am so unbelievably grateful for all the love and support you all continue to provide me with. I love each and every one of you and couldn’t imagine my life without you.
For makeup this month I have been following one eyeshadow palette per week. I also have been posting a ‘Makeup of The Week’ every Saturday, be sure to check them out if you’re interested. My favorite palette this month was definitely Naked 3. I loved creating looks it’s this palette and got so many compliments. As far as foundation goes, I have been loving the Loreal Matte Infallible Foundation. I do my makeup at 6 in the morning and due to my crazy schedule I usually don’t get around t removing my makeup and showering until 9 pm. It has amazing lasting power and hardly budges. For lips this month I have been loving the NYX Lingerie Lipsticks and my Wet N Wild Matte Lipstick in ‘Cinnamon Spice’ for a bold, daring lip color.
As far as hair goes, I’ve been curling my hair with my ConAir 1 1/2″ curling iron like crazy this month. When the curls lose and start to fall it leaves my hair looking super voluminous and big which is how I like it.
I have also been using the Garniar Micellar Water to remove my makeup each night and it is amazing, I love it so much better than using a makeup wipe and it leaves hardly any residue behind. It’s so worth it!
For clothing, I’ve been transitioning my closet into the cooler temperatures and been loving my espadrilles this month. They look so cute with everything and are very trendy. I also really loved my overalls this month. These are just a few of my favorite outfits from this month. Check out my Weekly Wrap Up’s to see my outfits of the week from this past month.
I haven’t read too much this month, but when I get around to it I’ve been picking up ‘Milk & Honey’ which is so relatable and has the most beautiful poems in it. I highly recommend it. I’ve also been reading lots of magazines this month, whether they are a paper copy or the electronic version. I love Vogue, Cosmo, and Seventeen. As far as my Bible goes, I have read some amazing things this month. My favorites definitely being 2 Timothy 20, and Psalm 119.
I have been listening to so much music this month on my computer. A lot of it was recommended to me by Gb. I have a new obsession with The Lumineers which are absolutely amazing. Hozier is still always on repeat, Mumford & Sons are making a come back in my playlists, as well as Milky Chance who I always love to listen to when Fall rolls around.
As stressful as this school year has already proved to be, I have also been enjoying it so much. I have amazing friends that I wouldn’t trade for the world and get to do what I love every Friday at football games which is soemthing I am so thankful for. Our school is ending September 4-0!!
