Wet n Wild Silent Treatment (LOTD)

This is a look I did a few days ago, using all the colors from the Silent Treatment Wet n Wild palette that I won! I really like the palette, but; I don't know how I feel about my entire look...you know how we are our own worst critic?!

I love wearing lashes now and I'm just now learning that as much as you love a pair of lashes you can only wear them about 4 times. I really love my Miss Adoro 415 lashes, I wore them so much that they look a mess, I had to throw them away-thankfully, I bought an extra pair :-) Anywho, here is the look...

Introducing....Adore Me!

If you haven't already heard or read, Adore Me, is one of the newest subscription based websites that offers women a personalized selection of lingerie, picked by a stylist each month! I'm a huge fan of lingerie... I'm no stranger to Frederick's, Victoria's Secret or any other lingerie store, so; I was very excited to hear about their new website.


How does Adore Me work?

In short, it's a program like Shoe Dazzle or Just Fab... you fill out a survey on your desired style of lingerie and a personal stylist selects lingerie that best suits your taste. You pay nothing until you decide to buy, once you do decide to purchase- there will be a fee of $39.95. If you don't like the selections, you are not obligated to purchase anything.


Tell me more about Adore Me!

"Adore Me is a new trendy lingerie club that offers a unique personalized shopping experience.

Everything begins with a short quiz that allows professional stylists, to hand-picked each month for you …

SONIA KASHUK BRUSH SET

As much as I've heard so many great things about Sonia Kashuk, I've never bought any of her brushes for my personal use. I was so excited when I won this travel brush set. I've been needing some smaller brushes to go in my cosmetic bag to use every day and now, thanks to this set, I have brushes that can fit in my cosmetic bag.

Golden-Bronze Bridal Makeover + Kit Faves

Hello, Glamour Dolls :-)

I did wedding makeup over the weekend. I was really excited because I've done smaller weddings in the past and this was my first big wedding! I'm glad I made it through the day without feeling tired or sluggish.

The wedding colors were gold, burgundy and white...here are a few pics of me in action and some of the work I did.


 
 

  This is one of my dear friends, who was also a bridesmaid in the wedding. She doesn't wear foundation, so; I wanted it to be very light and natural. I used the  Mid Marigold color from theGraftobian Hd foundation palette and powder. On her eyes are: Satin Taupe, Woodwinked and Bamboo e/s by Mac. We did a light flush blush on her cheeks.. her brown contacts really made her eyes pop.


The maid of honor was also a friend of mine. She wanted a natural look with some flair. I used the Sienna color from the Graftobian foundation palette on her and the MUFE HD invisible powder. On her eyes, I did a dark to light transition …

Nordstrom's Winter 2011 Makeup Trend Show + Mini Haul (Pic Heavy)

A friend of mine told me about Nordstrom's annual Trend show that showcases the upcoming makeup trends for the winter season... which are metallic eyes and red lips.

I hadn't heard of  the Trend show before, but; I was eager to attend. It was last Saturday, it featured a mini fashion show, upcoming products from numerous makeup, skin care and perfume lines, giveaways, lots of discounts and a goody bag. 



The cost was very inexpensive, only $15 and the $15 could be used towards any beauty purchase. Guests had the option to get their faces done by the makeup lines featured. My friends got their faces done at Mac, they looked amazing. I'm a huge Mac fan, but; I decided to get my face done at the Bobbi Brown counter.



I didn't take a picture of my face, but it came out well. It was very natural on the eyes and face and a bold red lip. It was different from what I would have done, but; isn't that the whole idea of getting your face done? Trying new looks and t…

Accidentally Neutral LOTD

I went out a few days ago and a friend asked me to do a full face of makeup...I wasn't feeling the best but she talked me into it and I did it for her. The colors I used were a sheer pink e/s on my lid and brown in my crease...it didn't turn out the way I wanted, so; I kept blending and this is what I came up with... a neutral eye. I will do the original look over.
