Smoothblue Freshwater Look...

This look was actually quite fun and I love how it turned out. Bold colors really show up on me. Anyway, the name of this look "Smoothblue Freshwater" and it's from the colors that I used.

I wanted something to match the top I was wearing (dark teal) so this is what I did.

NYX Jumbo Pencil - Milk (lid to crease)
MAC Primary Yellow (inner lid)
MAC Freshwater(outer lid & outer lower lash line)

Soft, sultry, smokey eyes

I wanted to do something very quick, very easy and very sexy and what better combination to use than black and silver. It was a bit late when I started this look but it didn't take me very long and it turned out pretty good (at least I think so).....

It's a pretty sexy red carpet look....paired with neutral lips

MAC Grease Paint Shadestick- Black (prime lid to crease)
Nameless matte black eye shadow (lid to crease)
MAC Cinderfella (over the matte black)

Cinderellas PROM 2010!!

Congrats to all the graduates of Class 2010.
Oh I can vaguely remember my graduation and prom for high school (yes it's been that long) but I'm sure I was equally as excited as the graduates today.
Today, June 24, 2010, beautiful little queens were preparing for their high school prom, something that would never happen again and I had the priviledge of working with a beautiful young lady who's also celebrating her birthday tomorrow (June 25). She was great to work with and there was something very unique about her because for the very first time in her life, she was going to wear makeup and hope to feel pretty.
Her theme was Cinderella and that's exactly what she looked like. Here are her photos:

Crushed berries


Woo hoo!! Yes, I'm finally getting back in the groove of things and feeling to play around with makeup!! I know I've been gone for some time but I'm back now.

Today, I wanted to use random colors and so I thought I'd play with fushia and royal blue. In between blending and applying colors, I thought of berries (raspberries and blue berries) hence the name "Crushed Berries".

This is what I came up with.....

- MAC White Frost (highlight)
- Victoria Secret Wanted (blue)
- Coastal Scents Fushia
- NYX Navy Blue liner
- Maybeline Volum' Express mascara
- MUFE Aqua Color White liner (water line)
- MAC Embark (brows)

- NC50 Studio Tech foundation
- NYX Chocolate Pressed Powder
- MAC Breezy blush
