Senior Pictures! (PIC HEAVY!)

Hey guys :)

As you may know, I'm a senior in high school, so along with that comes the wonderful senior pictures. I decided against getting them done by the company that works through the school. One of my mom's coworkers does photography on the side and so I got them done by her. I got a lot more time, more poses, etc. for a much better deal. We went to my favorite area of the city and just took pictures wherever it felt right.

I wanted to show off my makeup :) I've never been more proud of any makeup that I've ever done. I did it similar to this post although some different products and a little varied.

I'll just post my favorites :)

 I couldn't possibly have a French-themed photo shoot without my Parisian fur scarf and French beret ;)

I hope you guys enjoy this look as much as I did! If I start a Youtube channel this summer, this might just be my first look ;)

To all my followers, thank you again for your support. I've got much more posts coming up!

Also, if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter (@jessiefrancaise) I post looks and stuff a lot more frequently, as it's quicker than blog posts.

Thanks again! Any suggestions, comments, questions, just comment or let me know on Twitter! :)

LOTD: Noir Précieux

Hello to all my beautiful followers! :)

Today I did a look with Bourjois's single baked eyeshadow in Noir Précieux. I got it probably over a year ago in a clearance at Ulta and it was such a good deal that I had to get it! Plus practically all the packaging is in French :) But the problem is it isn't very pigmented and because of that I haven't really known what to do with it. I decided to pick it back up again today to play around with it and another eyeshadow I haven't used much of. The other shadow I used was a light lilac that was a hand-me-down from my grandma. It's by Saisons Cosmetics, and when I looked this company up, it looks like it only sells at my grandma's country club! It doesn't even have a name, but it's just a simple, pretty color.

For the products I used:
MUFE HD primer
ELF Studio tinted moisturizer in Porcelain
Revlon Photoready foundation in Shell
NYX Concealer in a Jar in Fair
ELF Complexion Perfection powder
ELF blusher in Bronzed and Blushing
Covergirl Eye Enhancers in Pink Chiffon (as a highlight)

ELF mineral eye primer
NYX Eyebrow Cake powder
Saisons Cosmetics eyeshadow in Rosy Tan
Bourjois ombre à paupières in Noir Précieux
ELF cream eyeliner in Midnight
Wet n Wild Color Icon eyeliner in Black black
Revlon Grow Luscious mascara

NYX Round Lipstick in Paris and Lip du Jour
ELF plumping lip glaze in Baby Doll

I hope you guys like it!
I am hoping I'll be posting a lot more now that I have a little time. I've got a lot of ideas!

Also, if you see products that I use a lot that you want me to review, just let me know and I'd be glad to!

Thanks again for following :)
