It's been a long time...

I'm baaack!  Fshew, it's been a minute, hasn't it?  So sorry my beaut's, life seemed to get in the way there for a little while.  I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving.  We spent ours in Pennsylvania with Brett's family.  It's always such a great time.  And it's always such an experience.  I was honored to take Brett's mama for her first EVER manicure!!  First. Ever.  I guess that's what happens when you raise boys.  She was hilarious.  She was chattin' everyone up.  By the time we left, she knew everyone on a first name basis and was planning her visit back when she is up in PA for Christmas.  Tehe!

Now, I'm finally settlin' back in to my routine here at home and getting sooooo excited about Christmas!  This year will be the first year since my mother passed away that I will spend it with my family.  I can't wait!  It's probably crazy that I've already planned out our Christmas day meals and fun dilly's that I want to do with the girls, right?!  I went to Target tonight and spent way too much money on stocking stuffers.  But how can you resist their $1 section?!?

Let's see, what else has been goin' on?  Oh yeah, I have set a goal for myself to watch the American Film Institutes 100 Greatest Film Musicals of All Time by my 30th birthday.  My birthday is 4 months away.  


But I've already seen 10 of them, so I have a little bit of a head start :)

Now on to the fun stuff.

With it being the season for festivities, I'm sure many of you will have plenty of parties and events that you are heading to.  These types of activities are always a good reason to play around with your makeup and have a little fun!  You can be as daring as you want to be.  Step outside of your comfort zone and do something you would never do.  Who knows, It may just become your signature look.  Be as sexy, bold, and seductive as you wanna be!  Like I always say:  IT'S ALL ABOUT WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL CONFIDENT AND BEAUTIFUL AND COMFORTABLE IN YOUR OWN SKIN!

Here are some of my favorite looks:

The Classic Cat Eye and Red Lip

Brown/Bronze Smokey Eye

A Bold Purple Lip

Soft and Subtle Sexiness

Now ladies, these are just a few options.  Play with your colors and your features.  Experiment!  Have fun!  

Until next time lovahs!

Perfect Pout?

Recently, I have been obsessed with dark lips.  Anything from red to purple to berry.  I love them all.  Shades of deep purples are IT for the season.  So I went on a quest last week to find the perfect purple for my pout.  But in my quest, I didn't find a purple but a FABULOUS berry!  I fell in love.  That doesn't mean that my search is done, though.  I'm still looking.  So here are a few pointers to find that perfect color just for you.

For my fair skinned beauts: Try a lipcolor that has a blue or pink undertone.  Going straight purple will wash you out and make you look like a ghost.  Try something like Loreal Colour Riche Lipcolour in Sea Fleur 630:

For my loves with medium skin tone:  I'm in your boat.  Usually I'm one to stick to nudes, peaches, or corals. But I while I was browsing around the makeup racks at Ulta, I found the perfect shade of deep berry.  And with me it has to be the PERFECT shade to go dark.  The color is Ulta Lipstick Totally Berried #247:

For dolls with olive skin:  Use a lipcolor that has an slight orange or berry undertone,  There are so many options available to women with olive skin.  Everything looks great on them.  I love MAC Hang-up:

For my lovelies with dark skin:  Being a former consultant for Clinique, I fell head over heels in love with Clinique Almost LipStick in Black Honey.  This color has been around FOR-EVER.  And once you try it, you are sure to understand why.  It's a sheer lipstick that has a violet undertone that warms up the dark skin.  You can also layer it with other colors to create your own signature shade.

These are just a few suggestions.  Let me know what your favorite plum, berry, or purple shade is!  Like I always say; it's all about what makes you feel beautiful, confident and amazing!
