Makeup, fashion, and me.

With 2010 coming you want to look fresh and ready for a new start. So say goodbye to last years smoky eyes and orange lips, and get ready for the new looks of the future!

Strong brows.

This picture shows strong brows perfectly, and it even shows metallic eyes too!

Over plucked brows are just so blah! The look now? Think and framing.  To get perfect brows take a pencil and line it up with were your eyes stop, that is were your brow should end. Then look straight forward and line a pencil up to the end of your pupil, that is were your brow should curve. After that just fade out to a tip. Always remember to only pick stray hairs on the bottom of your brow, never the top.

Metallic eyes.

You don't have to make your metallic eyes this crazy to have them be fabulous.

The cutest new look for eyes right now is all in the metal. If you have darker skin choose a  deep gold or copper, but if you have a lighter skin tone go for silver or light  gold. One look that I like to use is a light silver on my lids and a deep gold on my crease. It makes my eyes pop!

Plum lips.

Plum lips are just oh so glamorous!

Say goodbye to boring nude and pink lips, because plum is the new thing. It’s so surprising and flattering that it will turn heads (don’t worry, I mean in a good way!). If your afraid to try it out wear it to a party first. After you see everyone’s reactions you can decide if you want to wear your purple lipstick again, or not.

Bronzed cheeks.

Rihanna looks healthy, and beautiful with her bronzed cheeks.

Bronzed, sun-kissed cheeks are all the rage with winter. Choose a shimmery one 2 shades darker then your natural skin tone to keep from looking like a clown. To apply it right sweep it up from the side of your nose up to the sides of your cheek bones.

So look absolutely stunning this new year, with these fabulous new looks.


I love halloween but since I know how hard it can be to choose and how halloween tends too sneak up on you (it’s in 1 day!) I think that all you procrastinating ladies nead a break, and here it is. Oh and all these fabulous costumes? You can make them just with things you already own!

  1. Be a hippy!

Be a chic hippy, not a goof.

Take your hair and put it into a super high side ponytail, you can add a bandana if you like. Then grap any tie die shirt you have on hand (or you can make one with friends, so fun and goofy!)  add a pair of low cut  boyfriend jeans, belt them with a scarf, add a big old smile and bam, hippy alert!

      2. Be a vampire!

This picture shows the leading charcater on yet another vampire show, "vampire diaries".

With all this twilight craze vampires are H.O.T. this year, no wonder since everyone in those movies is insanely cute! But back to the point just add some thick black liner, black tights and a black or jean skirt, any pretty old top, and your a fabulous vampire.

       3. Be a spy!

Just because it's cute.

Dress in all black, and some killer high heels really complete it. Add some glam 50’s  marilyn monroe makeup wouldn’t go amis either!

So don’t look like you just threw something together last minute, look glam and chic, even if you only made your costume the day  before halloween!

I was in Sephora recently when a friend of mine pointed out a lipstick. It was labeled mango, and it was fabulous.

I know what you’re thinking “orange lips? You’ll look like you got freaky with a bag of Cheetos!” OK, maybe you guys aren’t thinking exactly that but you get the point. But orange this isn’t neon orange (or in other words Cheetos colored) it’s slightly pinkish, and more then slightly awesome.

I just absalutly love orange lipstick!

I just absolutely love orange lipstick!

See, orange lipstick isn’t so scary! But it’s not plain boring pink either. Worried you’ll look stupid wearing it? The trick to wearing orange lipstick right is to not pretend you’re not wearing it, or be totally aware and self conscience either. Wear it like you know you’re wearing it, and know you look good in it (even if you don’t think you do!).

So rock that orange lipstick, and watch the heads turn.

And another lipstick I’m in love with.

You put sunscreen on your face, you put sunscreen on your hands, heck, if you’re me you put sunscreen in between your toes, but you never put sunscreen on your lips. Isn’t that just wrong? And think about, your lips are as exposed to the sun as the rest of your face, but you wouldn’t dream of going without sunscreen on a hot summer day. But you aren’t just about going rub sunscreen all over your mouth when the Pacheco says ‘If swallowed please medical help’ . Is anyone else uh-oh-ing? But there is hope for your yet, with SPF lip gloss.

I happen to own this fabulous gloss (real name, freash sugar lip gloss) and have been in love with it for over a year. It has SPF 15 and smells like lemon. Lemon smelling and has sunscrreen? I think we have a winner!

I happen to own this fabulous gloss (real name, Fresh Sugar lip gloss) and have been in love with it for over a year. It has SPF 15 and smells like lemon. Lemon smelling and has sunscreen? I think we have a winner!

Sound perfect? There’s more! It’s also moisturizing and not sticky. Perfection in a tube. You can find it at Sephora for $18 dollars.

So give your lips a break a SPF-ify them!
