Lots & Lots of curls!

Wanna get these luscious curls? here's how..

 First you must purchase Conair's Infinitiy "You-Curl ".
let your hair air dry, once fully dried, apply hair oil of your choice then grab sections of  1 inch of hair strands & wrap hair around iron for about 3-5 seconds & let go. Continue until the entire head is curled. Once your entire hair is curled, style as you please,  finish  up with hairspray so that curls last all day.  This process will take up to 20-25 minutes. Enjoy!

I love, love, LOVE! purple eyeshadows. It's one of my favorites :) if you don't have any purples what are you waiting for?! It's time to invest! & if you do wear purples, what colors do  you rock them with? please share :) purples are so much fun to wear there are TONS of different shades of purples that can be rocked. 

So a couple of days ago I purchased a new shade of purple called 'Starts 'n' Rockets'  I absolutely love this color, it's pretty & fun, let me share how I wore it......

As a base I used: Delft
Under brow: Vanilla
Eyelids:1st I used Carbon  (shade of black) on the lid instead of eyeliner then I did Fig.1 all over the lid.

Eye crease: I used Start n rockets.

& for the outer corners I used Sketch.

If you want the shadow to come out lighter, don't use the shade of black (Carborn) just skip that step.

                                                         Hope you all like the look :)
              ( Don't for get to comment, let me know what you think, feel free to share the blog with friends)

                                                               Purple is <3

Simple up do.

 During the holidays I didn't want to do the usual, hair down and curled. I  wanted to wear my hair up, do something different, simple & easy. So I went with an up do.

Back View/side view

 Basically what I did was curl all my hair, part it to the side & started pining it up with bobby pins to the side of my head (behind the ear area) it took a few bobby pins to get all of my hair up.

Once I made sure that it was all up & pined tightly,  sprayed it down with  hair spray to keep it all in place, It stayed up for a few hours before I had to touch it up.

This is a DON'T

I know us ladies like to be "matchy, matchy "  at times but PLEASE don't match your makeup with your ENTIRE OUTFIT, I find this to  be overwhelming and a bit tacky  :-/

Just imagine wearing a Turquoise shirt, shoes &  Turquoise eyeshadow!  Yuck! total disaster, it's too much! unless you're going to attend an 80's party then you might just pull the look off.  Other than that, Please don't &  if you take that risk, try to make it work somehow.

Pachuca (or Pinup) inspired..

 I'm in a red lipstick kind of mood, So I decided to do a 'Pachuca' or Pin-up look if you will. Red lipstick represents  classy, sassy & confidence.  Everyone can rock red lips, it's all about finding that perfect shade that compliments your  skin tone.

 I  like to keep the eyes looking simple but not too simple when  rockin' red lips.

Base/primer- Soft Ochre by MAC
Under brow-Brule by MAC
Eyelid- Vanilla by MAC
Eye crease- Arena
Inner  eye corners -Phloof! This colors brings out  the eyes.
 Eyeliner- Almay liquid liner/ traceur in black/noir  (you can find this eyeliner at your local drug store)
Eye lashes #47 (red cherry brand)


I used a bronzer. Bronzer Pro by MARK. & Trance Gold by MAC on top, to give a little shimmer

  I used lip Pencil Burgundy by MAC with lipstick color Ruby Woo Also by MAC.

 I hope I've inspired you to try some red lipstick. ;)

Have a wonderful day & bless up!

NYE Trip To Reno, Nevada

HAPPY 2011 I hope you all had a wonderful time ringing in the new year with friends & loved ones. I spent new years eve with my boyfriend, brothers & a couple of friends in frosty Reno Nevada, we celebrated  & gambled the night away.. tons of fun!

Rockin' my purple eyeshadow  I LOVE purple.

We decide to make a quick stop on our way up to play in the snow & take in the beautiful scenery. My boyfriend was teasing me about wearing my Steve Madden boots in the snow. Haha..(notice the heel on my right boot berried in the snow) it's all good.

I wore this black sweater-dress with black tights & ankle boots, Comfy yet sexy ;)
along with the makeup using colors from my last blog post.

We went outside of  the casinos for the fireworks & countdown making this night a memorable one.

Snowing like crazy  in the 27 degree weather on our way home from Reno, It's was beautiful.
