Everyday Winged Eyeliner Tutorial: A Video

everyday winged eyeliner video tutorial

Today is a first for me as I launch my very first video tutorial! I am showing you how I do my everyday winged eyeliner from start to finish. 

Products Used in this tutorial: 

It felt so weird recording this video since I normally like to keep it to pictures but I thought you all might enjoy hearing my voice haha and getting to know me a little better. What do you think? Do you like seeing video tutorials from me? Was this video helpful?

Be sure to follow the King & Kind YouTube channel today to keep up to date on all the videos I post.

Happy Friday all! Today, I am daydreaming about strolling around town on a crisp Fall day sipping a Pumpkin Spice Latte and wearing these gorgeous brogues!! Additionally, I really love the new wave of double pearl earrings or pearl 360 studs, I also like these for the bling version and this ring is awesome! 

What new trends are you excited about for this season? I would love to hear from you.

I realized recently that I feature a lot of casual outfits (and some dresses/skirts) on the blog  but I spend most of my time in business attire for work. Maybe I am just revolting against my normal corporate wardrobe. It's very strange, so I thought I would share an outfit I wore to the office recently. I do try to szhush things up a tad and not be too cookie cutter unless it really is most appropriate because sometimes you just have to keep it polished and strictly professional. 

I intend to incorporate more work looks on the blog or at least try to do so. Here are a few other work looks you can get ideas from: 

Speaking of work, how is your week going?

I had a very nice weekend despite the sweltering heat here in San Diego + no air conditioning. For some reason it is common for beach communities not to have air here in San Diego and it gets pretty uncomfortable this time of year which is our hottest and most humid. Not exactly what this midwesterner is used to going into mid-September. I just want to wear a sweater and boots! (whine) If you arent entirely annoyed with me yet I will continue on to to the fashion. 

This cute fit and flare dress from Le Tote paired perfectly with my raven feather bibb necklace that I scooped up at the Nordstrom sale several weeks ago. There are ways to welcome the Fall season even if weather isnt cooperating. Try booties and a cool dress with darker accessories and makeup. I love the Lincoln Park After Dark OPI nail polish for Fall. 

Hope you have a great Monday!

Statement Necklaces: A Forward Fashionista GIVEAWAY! {CLOSED}

I was recently informed that I have a reputation for great statement necklaces and I will admit that I do fancy a bold striking necklace above any arm party. When I was introduced to The Forward Fashionista shop I just couldn't get enough of their pretty, budget friendly jewelry. This piece is such a stunner paired with all white or various neutrals.

As much as I love sparkle, I feel it's important to pick out a variety of styles as not every outfit (okay some outfits) don't need a big sparkly piece, as much as I would love to pile them on everyday :D. This beauty could go with a great denim shirt or even be mixed with metallics or a t-shirt. Did I mention that Forward Fashionista offers Free Shipping on all orders over $13.50? I love that!

Making a statement with your necklaces can also mean going delicate. I fell in love with this little triangle pave necklace and find myself wearing it ALL OF THE TIME (seen in this beach post). Unfortunately, this beauty sold out pretty quickly, but I also really love these crystal bar pendants

To help you build your collections of statement necklaces, The Forward Fashionista is giving away this gorgeous Valentina necklace which is currently sold out! Must be a King & Kind follower to enter. The giveaway will run from 9/10/14-9-16-14 and is open to US Residents only.

A quick hello today and singing the praises of this adorable dress that Pree Brulee sent over. I had never purchased anything from them but was so happy with this little dress! The quality is great and I plan to wear it this Fall and will be bringing it with me on my tropical vacation in December! I don't own anything like this and I have to say, I am loving this easy, laid back style. 

Also, Pree Brulee is kind enough to offer King & Kind readers a $10 off discount, just use code King&Kind10 ! I am loving this cozy sweater, this sparkly blouse, and this gorgous cuff
