Gold Glitter & Teal Makeup WITH VIDEO

TGIF Beauties!

Since it’s Friday and some of you are probably planning a fabulous night out, I thought I’d bring you a “going out” makeup look. This makeup is super -wearable but still has nighttime elements like glitter and smoke.  Ooh-la-la!

This is a great makeup look to try if you have a ton of bold, bright eyeshadow colors and have no idea how to use them. Don’t be afraid of color! Instead of smearing it all over, line your lower lid with it. You will get a pop of color without feeling like you went overboard. Balance everything out with a light lip and natural skin. I skipped lashes for this look, but if you’re feeling a little vixen, go for it. Lashes have a way of finishing the look, kind of like the frame around a masterpiece- it’s also the reason celebrities always look so put together on the red carpet.

Valentine’s Day Makeup

Pink, pink and more pink! Whether you are in a relationship or not, this is a fun way to get into this Hallmark-card-invented holiday. I went with a “60’s Anime” vibe with this one. Top and bottom lashes, glitter and a heart on my cheek.

I’ve been rocking this baby doll pink lipstick from Youngblood Cosmetics for a week now. It’s coming out in their Spring Launch in March! It’s called Debalicious, after a Youngblood employee who wears this signature color on the daily. IMG_4319

You can always replace the pink on the lips and the heart on the cheek with red for a bolder look!

What are your plans for Valentine’s Day? Do you think it’s an overrated holiday?

Nicki Minaj at the VMAs 2012

 

 

How gorgeous did Nicki Minaj look at this year’s VMA Awards? I absolutely adore her in the “Barbie” theme. She just does it so well. This look is beautiful for a clubby night out or even for a glamourous Halloween look. I break it down for you in the video at the end of this blog.

Here’s my version:
