You guys already know how much I love Birchbox. I love to brag that I was one of their first twenty “beta members” back, a few years ago. I’ve gotten my whole family + countless friends hooked on the monthly treat and have been a big fan – way before they were such a big deal. Naturally, I was really excited when they invited me to a little afternoon of pampering + fun shoot to be a part of their Madewell lookbook with four other bloggers.
First I’m sharing the little makeover they gave me (at Jeff Chastain Parlour). Be sure to come back later today to see the pieces I chose from Madewell.
We started out with the hair. (Surprise!) I went with messy beachy waves.
Because I was already five days into my blow-out (gross, I know, but you already know by now that I hate washing my hair) my stylist loaded up my hair with Oribe’s Texturizing Spray (best smell ever) and Serge Normant’s Meta Revive Dry Shampoo.
After my hair was done, I headed over to makeup, where the (amazing) Nam Vo gave me a perfect Spring look. Amongst other things, she used this gorgeous Blush’n’Brighten Compact to give me some glow, perked up my eyes with these Stila eyeshadows, and painted on the most delicious tangerine lip in “Lucy.”
She also used Benefit’s amazing new concealer, Fakeup. Love this stuff.
And here is the final hair + makeup! I’ll be back a little later today to share my outfit… in the meantime, check out this video!
P.S. YOU GUYS. My sister’s textile line launched today and it is SICK. Go here, immediately, and check it out.
Such a stunner! I’ve never tried out Birchbox, but maybe I will now because spring is approaching and I’d like to get some new products on my radar.
Oribe is one of my fave hair lines because of the smell. We use their shampoo and conditioner in my household and it just smells amazing.

You look gorg! I love that lip color on you, and I’m pretty you are the queen of beach-y waves. I’ve never seen your hair look bad!
Your hair looks so cute, can’t believe that’s five days without washing! Even with dry shampoo my hair looks like crap after three.

Gorgeous! Love that bright lip with the neutral eye!
your hair and the coral lip look amazing- so jealous of your makeover!

Girl your hair is out of control amazing. Love the finished look!
So fun! You look beautiful!
loving this fun lip color for spring, and totally hear ya on waiting as long as possible between washes (I’m up to 3-4 days!). Your hair looks gorgeous here.
How fun ~ didn’t know you were one of the first Birchbox testers. 😉 And you look gorgeous!! I love makeovers. 😉
OMG you.are.stunning. The hair is amazing and I love the orange lip! Such a fun makeover!!
I’ve always wanted to give Birch Box a try, I think I will need to now. Also, you have the most amazing hair! I feel like your curls go on for days. So pretty!
You look great! Sounds like a fun event. Looking forward to part 2!
Your lip color looks FAB! And I am so loving your sisters new site – you must be so proud!
every.single. oribe product smells like that. all of them. it’s the most amazing thing ever. and obvi i love becca’s pillows.
i love that oribe spray! but – do they use a sulfate free shampoo where you get blowouts? i started using oribe (one of the creams) and couldn’t figure out why my hair started feeling dirty – then i remembered your post and realized that my sulfate free stuff wasn’t cutting through the silicone in the oribe! so now i save it for special, have to have good hair days! so thank you!
love your sister’s line! such a talented family!
You look wonderful! Also, I’m jealous of your hair. I honestly can say that I cannot – and have tried multiple times – to go even a day without washing my hair, but it turns into the most disgusting thing ever. After five days, yours looks incredible!
Wait that is 5 day old hair? Get out of here. You have the BEST hair. If I went five days, I would look like I just got out of the shower but yours looks model worthy.
can’t wait to see more of this fun day!
Your hair is so pretty! And love the orange lip!
All of my favorite things are happening over on your blog these days. First Lulu Frost and now Madewell and Birchbox? Sigh. Loooove those tangerine lips. The orange realm is probably the only lipstick I haven’t tried, and now I want to so bad! Love it all. xo
You look so pretty (as always!)! You and Christin are my total hair crushes! And, I must try that texturized spray. It looks like it held your curls perfectly!
aw, thanks girl! my hair does not belong in the same classification as christin’s… hers is truly perfect!
The curls and the lips…simply gorgeous!
You look so beautiful and fresh! Love that moment where I find a that pretty pink box in my mail!
Love the beachy waves! Still dying to know how you stretch a blow dry for 5 days! 3 is my best, but 5 would be heavenly. I’m in full support! 🙂
One, you look gorge! Two, love your sister’s line. The dip dyed blue stripe pillow is my fav!
So gorgeous- I love that tangerine lip color on you. Can’t wait to find out what you wore!
You look GORGEOUS! (And I can’t believe that’s 5 days into a blowout… my hair would look WAY different than that (in a bad way) if I waited five days.)
I covet your hair!!!!!
5 days! I’m so jelly! I wish wish wish wish I could go that long 🙂 I just started using oribe products and I’m so obsessed with the texturizing spray!
You look amazing!! Obsessed with the orange lip color!
omg. GORGE! love your lipstick!
