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.
