#STEPHSKIPSTOWN to Mexico City



The vibrancy of Mexico City, or also known as Distrito Federal, is flaunted through masterful murals scattered through the city, contemporary structures that house worldly art and cuisine, and the vivacious citizens that go above and beyond hospitality.  Packing could go both ways, to either enhance the colorful palette of the destination with a vivid wardrobe of prints and bold hues or admire it with a complimentary ensemble of primary neutrals with a pop of Mexico City-pink. Clean lines like an A-line skirt or the half moon crossbody pay homage to the minimalist architectural landscape of famous architect Luis Barragán, while polished acrylic pendant earrings are worthy of Frida Kahlo's vanity. 

Follow along at #stephskipstown for our adventure in Mexico City for my fiancé's birthday!

The Daily Five



When I put my skin first, my makeup assemblage becomes light and tightly edited. I make a heavy emphasis on good skincare for a clean canvas so that makeup doesn't become my artificial veil of confidence, as it once was throughout my younger years. 

I stick to my five hero products that I use every single morning for a natural, glowing day look. For my sensitive palette, natural beauty brands are my go-to and I never feel bad or heavy for wearing layers of makeup if it has good ingredients. RMS Beauty is a pure approach to a radiant look, using natural, certified organic ingredients like coconut oil and argan oil that interact and support your skin as you wear it. I swear it helps any blemish I have go away faster when I conceal with RMS Un Cover-Up. I dab the Lip2Cheek in Illusive on the apples of my cheeks and a swipe of RMS Eye Polish in Lunar on the cheekbones, nose bridge, and inner corner of my eyes (I rarely use it as actual eyeshadow because it's too creamy for my oily eyelids). I never leave the house without a bit of Dipbrow. Lastly, Chanel's Rouge Coco Stylo is a rare lip product that combines subtle radiance and a natural tint that can leave a just-bitten stain or layer for more of a dramatic lip.
