I had so much fun completing this look! My client was ready to go to a TeChNo pArTy and wanted to have a fun- funky look. I used pinks and blues- and an overall shimmer to create nice glow.
I used a palette that gives you endless possibilities from Coastal Scents 88 Ultra shimmer palette, and also used my Urban Decay 24/7 pencil (Electric) Of course, an ultra long set of girly lashes completed the bright look!
I really enjoy creating looks that allow me to use and experiment with fun colors- she looked great and was ready to get her dance on ;)
What colors are your FAVE when you go out?!

Guess what's one of my new must-have palettes?! Yep- you guessed it! Urban Decay (Naked)- it's one of the most popular palettes this year! I was so happy to be one of the first ones to get a hold of this number:)
It has such great Pigmentation and a variety of NAKED colors. If you love a soft brown and some shimmer- this palette is for you! From a simple soft brown look to an adventurous SMOKY eye (the possibilities are endless!)
I love this look because I was able to create a sophisticated smoky eye with a soft overall glow: ) She looked amazing! And the whole look is with NAKED .The light golden color in the inner tear area gave her a pop of color; without hiding her natural glow and beauty.
All over lid = GUNMETAL
Crease = HUSTLE
Darken Inner V = CREEP
Brow Highlight = VIRGIN
Inner Tear = HALF BAKED
What's your favorite palette ?- I'd love to know and test it out:)

I used a gold pigment by MAC to get the golden look she wanted.
The soft airbrushed foundation helped her skin stay matte and looking flawless!
I love it when I have the opportunity to make a BRIDES special day even better!-By helping her enhance her natural beauty- I was able to get this bride all ready-to-go for her big day:)
She wanted to go for a classy GOLDEN GODDESS look and I had a lot of fun using gold pigment. This foil lasts all day but it's important to layer it with a light layer of golden eyeshadow to avoid creasing.
The main focus were her eyes and the rest was just a soft airbrushed look. On such an important day like a wedding- the last thing a bride should have to worry about- is her makeup! I want to make sure that all of my brides feel as gorgeous and happy on the outside as they do on the inside!
I hope you agree with me when I say she looked Flawless for her big day! ;)

A girls gotta have FUN right?! I was experimenting and having some fun with my new love Sigma Palettes, this time I used FLARE.
There are so many great colors to choose from! They vary from every day looks to all out and Bold. I was feeling bold (it's always fun to try something new!) AND I love purples-this one allowed me to create a vibrant bold smoky-eye look without using any black shades…
I used 4 colors in this pallet: RESIT – GOSSIP – ALLURE AND BEWARE…
And VOILA! I'm all ready to go out with the girls and just have a Fun night out! I even ventured and added some extreme lashes to complete the whole look…
I had to also throw in a pic of one of my favorite Purple nailpolish colors.. Sephora by OPI (Little Dangerous)
Are there any bold colors you love to play with?!
M.A.C.paint pot: Soft Ochre ( lid primer)
Sigma Allure Shadow - on eye lid
Sigma Resist Shadow - on outer crease
Sigma Gossip Shadow - on inner crease
Mac Vanilla Shadow -for Highlight.
Gotta Love me some purple !!!

I have to admit... YES- I am a Mascara Junkie, amongst other things ;) I'm always on the hunt for the best mascara ever. There are so many out there that claim to do amazing things, however, it's more talk than results!:p
When I heard about this mascara- I was so excited because it claimed to do a lot of things (I got it at my second home: Sephora : )
The Mascara is called Benefit "They're Real"($22) I know a little pricey but it claimed to give you "length, curl , lift, volume" basically THE WORKS! For me, the "curl" was what caught my eye-my lashes are long but so very stubborn and stick straight and I will buy anything that claims to give me some curl!
So the result after I used it? Drum roll please.... I was VERY impressed and happy with my purchase! It does help with CURL (that I crave) and it's also very lengthening. It DOESN'T even CLUMP or FLAKE- which is an added benefit for those of us that want the perfect look!
It's a a great addition to my other stash of Favorite Mascaras!
Do you have any other Holy Grail(HG) Mascaras that you can't live without? I would love to know! It could be my next feature product!

I just received this pallet and other goodies last week that I ordered from Sigma Makeup. It was really hard to make a decision because they have 3 amazing choices for their new eyeshadow collection: DARE, BARE and FLARE !!!(amazing name right) All equally beautiful- for all of us that LOVE to make and experiment with many different looks..!
The pigmentation- in one word- AMAZING! It's hard to find eyeshadows that don't cost a bundle with great pigmentation that lasts! I love the packaging and the value to get 8 shadows for $35 dollars- this is way cheaper than buying individual MAC eyeshadows... And one great perk with all of their pallets is that they come with a dual brush .. I can totally appreciate that .. one can't have one to many brushes right ?! This one has Sigma E20 (short shader brush) and E45 (small tapered blending : )
I was super excited try this look-It was funny, but I ended up using the palette I was the least excited about DARE , but once I got it, the colors just won me over specially "Shout " seems a bit intimidating in the package and a little daring-but it's such a nice color! I hope you DARE to try this look!.. and hope you love it as much as I do !
Definitely 2 thumbs up for this one!

Hey there !
I can't tell you all how excited I am about starting my very own blog... I know there are tons out there! However, this is something so very new for me and I want it to be a fun place to share and for you to stop by and get new ideas!
Most of you know my passion for Makeup! : ) And although this blog will be about makeup,tips and beauty- I will also be blogging about: FASHION, shoes (wink-wink), up-and-coming trends , reviews on products (I am loving or totally hating) and just a little bit of everything!
I hope you have fun reading along and please let me know if there's something I should incorporate...and what not.... I want this to be a fun experience for everyone and a place where we can share everything glamorous and styling we love ... everything GLAMSTYLN' !
This is a fun and casual look! I love express jeans because they're so versatile and they fit so well! I'm easing into fall with a darker top- this one- I've had for a while! but it's fun to bring out things and change it up with a fun accessory like a structured purse. Shoedazzle has some fun choices and it's neat to have an account with them! Do any of you have a shoedazzle account?
