We are loving this retro 90s style! She could not have worn it better with her gorgeous wild curls!
We had the pleasure to attend a M.A.C cosmetics event this week. It was a promotional event for the new Holiday collection. We took the liberty of asking a couple tips just for you guys!
Q. What is the secret for a perfect smokey eyes?
A. I really think a great brush makes the biggest difference! Being able to blend easily make the effect all the more smokey and fabulous. The best in my opinion is the 224 Tapered Brush.
Q. What is the best product in this new collection?
A. There are so many! I love them all. This Mineralized blush/highlighter is amazing! The color is so flattering on any skin tone. I also love the eyeshadows. Sometimes, I wet my brush a little to make the eyeshadow have a metallic finish.
Q. What is the M.A.C product you cannot live without?
A. Oh that’s easy! The concealer saves me every morning. I have horrible dark circles and so the mineralize concealer is my go to. Even if I don’t wear a full face of makeup, I just hide my little kinks.
After getting our makeup done, we enjoyed the lovely entertainment, and hors d’oeuvres. Hope to be a part of it again next season!
Everyone’s favorite day of the week.
No matter how tired you are from a heavy week, you still manage to wake up with energy to take on the week-end.
Could it be the anticipation of the evening’s plans? Dinner at Papaye? Hangouts at Magdoos? The occasional BPPevents’ parties?
Our choices are limited here, and it’s up to us to make the best of our week-ends…
ZARA pants and sweater, Steve Madden sneakers, LV bag, Valentino glasses.
Witches and ghouls welcome! All Hallows Eve conjures up our deepest fear and most whimsical fantasies. Whether you’re the vial and gory type or ethereal and love the magical side of things, Halloween is the excuse to go all out!
For all of you “Walking Dead”, or Anne Rice novels fans, here’s a look that can used for either a Zombie or Vampire costume.
The idea is to look as pale and tired as possible. Forget your concealer!!!! Use brownish and purple eyeshadows to create deep bags under the eyes (the one time this is ok). Contour your cheekbones as much as possible because you want to look super thin (Liquid diets and starving till you find some flesh will do that you). To finish off, use a deep red liquid lipstick to create a bloody mouth (Yum!)
This one creeps people out the most. There isn’t anything scarier than an innocent looking child, or doll with a killer streak.
Start of with a pale uniform and matte complexion. Use a white matte eyeshadow under your eyes to create the illusion of bigger eyes (A la lady Gaga), and use a black liquid liner to trace your “new” eyes. Go as wild and bold with colorful eyeshadows to further enhance your big eyes, and apply generous coats of mascara on the TOP lashes. Create fake bottom lashes. Put some blush on as usual (go a little heavier on the pink), and add some freckles. Create a little heart mouth in red, and draw lines on the corners on your mouth and add the sutures (creepyyyy).
This one is for people (like me…), who love all things magic with a slight sinister edge. Anyone else a Harry Potter/Lord of the Rings/ Dark Hunters/ Incarnations of Immortality fan here? No?… Just me? Moving on…
This one is a little easier. Use a flat eyeshadow brush to create a petal like pattern all over your eyes to make a butterfly like mask. Use any color from the same scheme. The trick is to have very pigmented eyeshadows because you’ll be patting the brush down. Use your liquid liner to create fluid lines on the edge of your eyes (Get creative!). Use a light blush, highlight in key areas, and a natural lipstick… Voilà!
You’ve guessed it! Fall’s latest and greatest accessories are big and bold… Eyebrows that is.
We’re not actually advocating you get rid of your tweezers, because we still need to keep those eyebrows groomed and neat. You can let them grow out a bit, or fill them in. One of my favorite ways to keep my eyebrows neatly shaped without taking away any fullness, is to thread them (It hurts quite a bit ladies, we know waxing is already a pain, but threading is worth it when done right)
Here’s a fun fall look for all of you up north. I love wearing a fun girly dress and giving it some edge with a man’s leather jacket and some combat boots.
I kept the makeup pretty simple because I felt it would be too hard for a day outing to rock red lips (even though nothing makes me feel more confident than a red pout)
The Dress is from Maggy London
Leather Jacket from Topman (It’s a man’s leather jacket btw… shhh)
Boots from Browns
Bag 1 from Zara
Bag 2 from Aldo
Hat from Club Monaco
The end of August: the end of summer vacation; a bitter sweet time for everyone, but for any Fashionista, the beginning of Fall Fashion! Goodbye shorts and sandals, and hello scarves and leather jackets!
While some of us head back to school up north, the rest of us in our tropical island can enjoy the perks of Fall Fashion with these universal Fall Fashion Dos this year:
– WARMER COLORS
As September approaches, dress up in warmer colors. See Fall 2013 color palette:
– GLAM MAKEUP
Dare to wear deeper lip color such as burgundy or tomato red; And add drama to your eyes with a classic cat eye, or try a copper eye shadow.
As the temperature drops, pick up the cardigans, vests, scarves etc… Instantly gives an outfit dimension and oomph.
– PATTERN MIX
A big fashion trend this Fall. Mix and pair your favorite prints and patterns!
Rock the preppy style with a nice cardi as they are perfect for school and/or work and can be worn it different ways.
– “NO WHITE AFTER LABOR DAY” RULE OUT
We are in 2013 anyways, who says to follow the rules? Wear that sexy white dress, and buy that beautiful white coat or blazer!
Here are a few essentials that are best for Summer-Fall transition:
– Denim Jacket
– Plaid Shirt
– Shorts: leather, plaid, or in dark colors. (not to wear with sandals)
Resan, literally meaning “recent” in Creole, but redefined by Haitian band T-Vice, as “fresh”, is their new single that has everyone adding the urbanized word to their everyday vocabulary.
