Halloween How-To: Zombie Makeup

Halloween How-To: Zombie Makeup

Happy Halloween, all! I created this zombie look a couple weeks ago for our office Halloween potluck-- it was my first time even attempting zombie makeup and I think it came out pretty darn good if I do say so myself. I had shared the steps to create the look on Snapchat (add me- manda_wanda) and thought it would be fun to share today-- it's great for Halloween or even a zombie run.

Inside October's POPSUGAR Must-Have Box

POPSUGAR sent me this Must Have Box to try, all opinions are my own. No monetary compensation has been provided. Thank you for supporting brands that support A Good Hue.

It's been gloomy and drizzly today-- perfect for a lazy Sunday, grabbing a blanket and getting cozy and lounging around. This month's POPSUGAR Must Have Box was created with just that in mind- coziness and warmth, which I am ALL about today.

The Must Have box is a lifestyle subscription box curated by the POPSUGAR editors that includes beauty, fashion, fitness, food, even home items. Every month contains new items (full-sized!) from these categories, here's a look and review on what's inside October's box:

Fall Style Essentials + Breast Cancer Awareness

This post is created in partnership with POPSUGAR Inc. and CFDA Foundation in support of the CFDA’s Fashion Targets Breast Cancer initiative.
Rebecca Minkoff Crossbody Bag | Diane von Furstenberg Coat (on sale!)  Elizabeth and James 'Nirvana White' Eau de Parfum  | Kendra Scott Y-Necklace | Kate Spade New York Scalloped Watch | Sam Edelman Slouch Boots | AG Ankle Super Skinny Jeans (on sale!) |  Tory Burch Sunglasses

Today I'm highlighting a few of my top fall style picks from CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) members, such as Rebecca Minkoff, DVF, Tory Burch  and more. For fall, I've been eyeballing slouch boots, ankle skinny jeans are always a must (they look great with booties!) and a coat is a must-have for when I visit colder areas-- I'm loving thisa soft camel shade for fall. Tell me, what are some of your fall must-haves?

This week from 10/17 - 10/23, I will be donating 10% of net sales (excluding taxes and shipping) initiated through the links in this post to CFDA Foundation.* Proceeds from CFDA Fashion Targets Breast Cancer  helps to provide access to reliable health information and quality health care to all women concerned about and/or diagnosed with breast cancer.  I urge you to make a concerted effort to give back and shop with this cause in mind.

According to the American Cancer Society, 1 in 8 women (12%)  in the US will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime, and in 2016 more than 40,000 women are estimated to die from from breast cancer. That's an extremely scary thought and chances are someone close to you has been diagnosed, or you know of someone who has had to fight. Although no one close to me has had to battle breast cancer...yet, they and even myself are at risk and it's important to have access to correct and reliable information to help prevent breast cancer, for early detection and most importantly, access to health care in order to fight, literally for life.


*This  Promotion is conducted in partnership with POPSUGAR Inc. and CFDA Foundation in support of the CFDA’s Fashion Targets Breast Cancer initiative. Sales originating in Arkansas, Alabama, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Vermont, Wyoming, and outside of the U.S. do not qualify towards the 10% of net sales towards donations. POPSUGAR Inc. will be separately making a $5,000 donation andwill additionally match all participating ShopStyle Collective bloggers donations $1 for $1, in excess of $5,000, up to a maximum of $5,000, for a total POPSUGAR Inc. maximum donation of $10,000.  The value of the donation corresponding to any purchase is not tax deductible to the consumer.

Recipe File: Buffalo Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps

Buffalo Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps Recipe

TBH I'm really not much of a sports fan, but you know what I can get on board with? Game day munchies, especially if hot wings (boneless please, I can't do the whole bone-in thing!) are involved. I recently made these Buffalo Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps for a sports-themed potluck at work and they were a huge hit! The soft Bibb lettuce provides the perfect vessel for the yummy buffalo chicken salad, which combines the best of hot wings: buffalo sauce, celery, and bleu cheese. You won't even miss regular ol' hot wings!

 Not only are these yummy... and healthy-ish... to munch on, they can work as a meal.  Keep reading for this easy-peasy recipe:

Blush Tie Blouse & Blue Bag + Good HUES-Day Linkup

Blush Tie Blouse & Rebecca Minkoff Regan Crossbody Bag
Blouse (similar) | Ankle Crop Pants (similar style) | Crossbody Bag |  Booties

No joke, I think I wear these pants at least twice a week. I'm surprised my co-workers haven't complained yet. I've basically been living in them but they're so comfy and look great pretty much paired with anything, including this sheer, tie-neck blush blouse. With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it's the perfect excuse to wear pink all the time and help support such an important cause.

September Beauty Favorites

September Beauty Favorites: Perfectly Posh, Glossier Haloscope, Becca Blush in Tigerlily

Oh Monday, you came way too quick! My sister is getting married in just under a month so we went cake tasting on Saturday- yum, yum! We then put together her favors and floral for the table centerpieces-- they came out so pretty, I think the tables are going to look really nice. Luckily she's having a small, low-key wedding so there't not too much to do.

Even though we're well into October already but here I am sharing a few of my beauty favorites from September. These are typically products I've been using pretty much on the daily for the month or one that I've tried and want to share with you all.

How To: Make Small Lips Look Bigger with Makeup

How To Create Bigger Lips with Makeup

I usually shy away from using bright, bold lip shades because I always thought they made my lips look super small and thin. I mean, my lips are super small and thin, but they would look really thin. I finally figured out some techniques using makeup to make my lip shape look more plump... no lip fillers, injections or tingling lip products required! Since using these tips, my lips have looked larger and thicker... and a lot nicer in lip colors.

Keep reading for my tips on how to make lips look bigger and fuller.
