Her Style: Asymmetry with Kayla Omsberg

Kayla Maryly Omsberg is an FIT Fashion Design graduate and Assistant Designer at Grey State Apparel. She’s lived all over the country--from Virgina, to New Jersey, to California before settling in NYC. She’s an incredible fashion sketch artist, and one of the most genuinely kind people I know! She loves hunting for vintage finds, painting watercolor, halo top ice cream, and listening to 60's music (especially Brigitte Bardot).

Kayla was actually one of my suite mates freshman year at FIT, and while I miss having 24/7 access to her stunning closet, I’m lucky to have had such great gals like her that first year!

Glossier: Love it, Like it, Leave it

Glossier is by far one of my favorite beauty brands. They’re the mecca of makeup for any gal who strives for that dewy, natural, lit-from-within look. Plus, since they’re a skincare-first brand, you know that every product is made with your skin in mind. I’ve tried almost every product they have, and today I’m laying them all out in three categories (Love it, Like it, ad Leave it) with mini-reviews! I thought it was just as important to talk about the products I DON'T like as much as the one's I love, so today we're getting real and raw about one of my favorite brands!

And when you’re ready to try, get 10% off your ordering through my page! And if you want personal recommendations, send me a DM on Instagram!
