Beauty Weekend: New Years look

image Happy Beauty Weekend! Since this is the last Sunday in 2012, this post is very special. Beauty Weekend has gave me the advantage to express my love for makeup with you. So lets end 2012 with a BANG! As i bring to you a fabulous New Years Look. Lets get started!

*I am not affiliated with any of the brands shown/mentioned.
* I am not a makeup artist nor have I had any training.

1. Prime those eyelids! I'm using Urban Decay's Primer Potion. (priming your eyelids will help you eyeshadow stay on longer with out creasing. It also helps some shadows appear brighter)

2. The Quad I will be using to achieve my look is L'oreal Paris Project Runway Limited Edition Quad in 416 The Queen's Gaze. I numbered the colors 1- 4 to tell you the order to go in. So with number 1. put this color all over the lid and up to under the brow bone. (A review for these Quads will be up soon)

3. Taking color number 2, put this color all over the lids. (don't put it to close to the tear doc area)

4. Now with colors 3 and 4 place them in the crease and outer corner. (just go back and forth with both in tell you get it to the darkness you like.) When you finish, take a blending brush and blend the crease together and kind of out.

5. Moving on to eyeliner I used L'oreal Paris 16HR Infallible Never Fail Eyeliner in 591 Carbon Black.  Add this eyeliner to your top lash line ONLY! (A review for this product will be up some time soon)

6. Lash, Lash, Lash! Get those lashes up and long. I used Maybelline New York Great Lash Lots of Lashes Mascara in 141 Very Black. This mascara will only go on your top lashes. (I want the bottom area to be clean and bright)

7. Give your face some sparkle! Hard Candy's So Baked Bronzer in 130 Tropics will give your face that extra glow. I added this with an E.L.F. Blush Brush (I am affiliated with them). Add this bronzer like you would do blush and highlight. (I will list the review videos to both the bronzer and the brush at the end)

8. On to the lips! I'm using Wet n Wild 918D Cherry Bomb. To get the perfect lip click Here

All done! I hope this Post helps you with your New Years look. Make sure to Follow me on Twitter to get updated right away.

Our Holiday Tree


Party Purse

 I decided to do this post because I now a lot of people will be attending Holiday party's. (even New Year Party's) But planing to attend this wonderful Holiday party, do you have any clue what purse you will be bringing? I know like 85% of you are going to be like, "I'm bringing a CLUTCH!" Well the thing about clutches are, you have to hold them! I know myself will not be bringing a clutch that i have to hold while trying to socialize (giving hugs/kisses and drinking) to a wonderful party. So here is my suggestion...

The Perfect Red Lip

 Hi guys! This post is about achieving The Perfect Red Lip. But lets face it, we also need it to last a long time. I will help you achieve all of that. This is how I do it...
 1. Get out your favorite lip moisturizer and moisturizer your lips. (I'm using Dermstore Lip Quench. Its a great moisturizer that really does last a long time)

 2. After having your lip balm on for a bit, get a napkin or tissue and blot off the excess balm.

image 3. Using Wet n Wild's lip pencil in 711 Chestnut (this is my favorite lip pencil and color) outline your lips. (you can go outside your natural lip line if you want a fuller lip) fill in the lips a little bit with the pencil too. (this will help with color bleeding and long lasting)

 4. Now on to the lip stick. Using Wet n Wild's lip stick in 911D Stoplight Red take your lip brush and pick up some product. Now pat the lip stick that is on the brush all over your lips. (this will fill in any lines or cracks that you have on your lips)

image  5. Fill in those lips! (you can used the lip stick tube if you want now)

image 6. The Finish LOOk. I love the way my lips look with this lipstick. (the picture isn't much of a justice, because this color is truly beautiful. I hope this post helped you achieve The Perfect Red Lip. If you have any question please let me know.

Beauty Weekend: Classic Holiday Look

 Happy Beauty Weekend! The Holidays are here and I know you need a look to wear to those party's, you will be attending. So what do you think about a Classic Holiday Look? Neutral eye makeup with a very classic red lip. Does that sound like you? Great, I new it would! So let me help you achieve it.

1. After your eyes are primed with your favorite primmer, get out your Urban Decay Naked Pallet. We will start off using the color "Sin" all over the eye lids and in the crease. (this will be your base color, and eye highlight for the inner corners of your eyes.)

2. Now take the color "Half Baked". This is a very shimmery gold color that you will be using on your eye lids. (don't go into the crease and don't go to close to the tear duct)

3. Smog is your crease color (so "smog" up that crease) LOL!

4. Buck! Buck will be going under your eye brows. (this is a color that helps blend and lineup other colors.)

5. Using this Hard Candy Baked Bronzer in "Tropics" highlight your face. (remember a little bit goes a long ways)

6. Well this is the final Look after adding a liquid liner (only to the top lid) an adding my favorite mascara (only to the top lashes). If your wondering were my lipstick is at, click here to see the post.

I hope you enjoyed this look because I enjoyed doing it. If there is any makeup looks you want to see, let me know.

Work Outfit

This is my work outfit or you can call it my uniform. My job in other words has a dress code and being a fashion blogger this dress code thing can be hard. I'm not going to go out and buy all black clothing to change it up, that's not my style. Basically what I'm trying to say is, if your in a position that's not you style always remember to stay true to yourself. I still were my hair the ways I always do and have in all my piercings. P.S. - Are you going through the same thing or something similar? Tell me your story below!

I needed a watch for work (well and some work pants), so i decided to go to Target. If you didn't know this Fall a new Target opened up in San Francisco at the Metreon. (Sorry I didn't have my camera that day to take pics) There are so many watches at Target its unbelievable and they are all fairly a good price. I picked out the one style#83121TC because of the metal band and the diamonds. (I don't like the rubber bands, they get all sweaty when wearing them for a long time) This watch was $14.99USD before tax. But the look and the feel of it, people will think other wise. If you have any questions, leave a comment down below or on my Twitter or Facebook page.

Chips... Oh So GOOD!

  1. Funyuns- If you see me and i have a bag of chips, its most likely these. I'm obsessed, so obsessed I would love to be a sponsored for them...LOL! Make sure you try the Flamin Hot ones those are good too!
  2. Sun Chips in French Onion- When I want more of a healthy day i get these. They taste so fresh and light, i don't feel guilty that I'm eating chips. I also like the Original and the Harvest Cheddar Flavors.
  3. Lays Kettle Cooked in Jalapeno- By looking at the bag you might think these are hot (since there is a Chile in the bag) but they are really not. These chips also have a different taste then all the rest i like. When you try these you will be so upset that you been passing buy them.
  4. Chester's Fries in Flamin Hot- If you know me you also know I'm obsessed with French Fries. So hot fries are the way to go. They are addicting so don't be surprised if you eat the hole bag in one setting.
  5. Pringles in Original- These are great for school. (I'm just saying, they have a lid) These come in a lot of flavors, I personal like the ones in showing you. They have a classic chip taste (i think they are baked, I'm not sure)

Purple Maze

 Torrid cardigan and glitter flats, H&M camisole in white,  Forever21+ camisole in black and jeggings in blue, Avon necklace

It rained a couple days ago and the dirt is still kinda damp. But you cant let the small things ruin a different scene. I call this post "Purple Maze" since the Torrid cardigan I'm wearing has a maze  looking pattern. It might look a little heavy but its far from that. If you would like to see this Cardigan in grey click here . I hope you guys have a great day.
