I've been seeing several requests through my social media channels for recommendations on nude lipsticks - being the lipstick hoarder that I am, I was so excited to make this video. Even more so, I know what a struggle it is to find the perfect nude lip, especially for darker skin tones - not too chalky, not too dull, but just right (Continue Reading...)
I know it’s still a month away, but I am so excited for bright Spring fashion! I love Spring because it’s the time when you say bye to the neutrals you’ve been wearing all winter long and hello to loud, vivid colors. I wanted to share a new lipstick I bought today that I’m so excited to wear out. I tried it on at the store and had to get it. It was so out of my comfort zone and screams Spring 2012:
I plan to pair this lip color with a floral print blouse for more of a day time look or pop green dress (green was the first color I thought of when I saw this lipstick) with chunky gold jewelry for a night on the town. You can take it a million different directions! I don’t care how much guys hate bright lipsticks, they are too fun to not wear, and might I add that they are right on trend. Get out there, experiment, and be bold this Spring!
For those of you wondering how this color looks on my complexion (tan with yellow undertones), here you go! Please excuse the extreme and WAY too up close and personal picture on the right, but hopefully it’ll help you decide whether this is a shade that’ll work with your skin…

What are YOU most excited about this Spring?
Being that it is Halloween, I thought what better day to talk about fake eyelashes? They are a great way to help make your eyes pop for that special holiday like today, on birthdays, for New Years Eve, or just a special night out. If you ever look at a picture of your favorite celeb and think to yourself “I wish my lashes were that full and lengthy” remember that they’re probably fake, and you can have them too! I feel like a lot of people are scared to try fake lashes because they think it will look obvious that they have them on or they are scared that the lashes might peel off at a corner and ruin a perfect Kodak moment (I use to be that girl). There are so many different kinds out there that it’s hard to pick which ones work best for you. I’ve tried out several different brands and found my favorites. For those who want their fake lashes to blend in with their natural ones to those who want bold/loud lashes, I have a brand for you:
MAC #4 ($15.00): In general, MAC has great lashes that vary in size, length, and drama. MAC lashes #4 works great for me because I have naturally long lashes that are extremely thin. These lashes add the perfect amount of thickness (without looking super fake) and draws just the right amount of attention to my eyes. If you have thick lashes and want to add length to your lashes, I recommend trying #2. I love the wispy fringe effect these lashes give. It elongates your lashes while blending in with your natural ones. If you buy the lashes in store, they put them on for you, and it stays on all night (no ruining Kodak moments for me). The best part about MAC lashes? You can absolutely reuse them!
Shu Uemura Dazzling Black Diamante ($28.00): If you’re looking for fierce lashes that say “look at me”, these are perfect! Shu Uemera lashes are theatrical and scream runway model. I think they would be great for a special event, holiday, or costume party. Although the lashes are costly, they are of the highest quality, as all products under the fab Shu Uemura brand portfolio. The Dazzling Black Diamante is apart of the Fantasy Lash collection. I love these lashes in particular because they are diamond lined and not to mention created specifically for Madonna! From feathers to tribal print, there are several other glamorous lash lines that you can check out, get inspired, and purchase on Shu Uemera’s US site.
If you are looking for more of a permanent fix to your lash problems, there are other options:
- Lash Extensions: It’s exactly what it sounds like. This procedure attaches lashes to your already existing eye lashes allowing you to shower, swim, and live your day to day life as if they were your own lashes! Sound silly? It’s actually a common trend that’s been going around recently and can cost anywhere from $100-500 dollars. I actually have a friend who did it and she looks great and loves the results! If this is something you’re looking into, my recommendation is to wait for a coupon to turn up. It will make the procedure much more affordable!
- Lash Lengtheners: These products help your natural lashes grow by applying a coat every night before bed to your upper lid along the lash line. I’ve actually tried this out myself, and it definitely did work. Keep in mind that lashes naturally fall out, so with that, your new full lashes will as well.
If fake lashes aren’t your thing, but you still want something that’ll do the trick of fake lashes, I found that CoverGirl Lash Blast mascara will make your lashes look fuller, thicker, and longer for any night out on the town!
