Categories: Makeup Tutorials


Kelly Rowland Dress

The dress that Kelly Rowland wore to this year’s 2013 Grammy’s that has since then unanimously been titled as such

I’m just trying to look halfway as glamorous as she does in a red version of this dress I got from Labellacouture.storenevy.com

Kelly Rowland Dress

I love that La Bella Couture offers celeb-inspired looks at a fraction of the cost. This day in age you can look original too by replicating your favorite celeb’s looks but spending not nearly as much.

I love the way this dress hugs in all the right places, and is perfect for a romantic date night with someone special :)

RPGShow Hair – a Product Review
Categories: Makeup Tutorials


I was recently contacted by RPGShow to review their human hair wigs. I am extremely PRO wigs and they are definitely more ideal for me since I am constantly switching from natural, to blow outs, to long, down my back hair in different colors. I love that wigs can do that for me.

 

RPGShow

So when they contacted me based on their track record alone I was definitely interested. This was the unit that was sent to me

RPGShow

 

http://www.rpgshow.com/stock-full-lace-human-hair-wig-straight-sgs001s-p-4744.html?public=37538

The code of the product: sgs001-s
Hair Color: #4
Hair length: 18 inches
Hair texture: yaki
Lace color: medium brown
Cap construction: glueless
Cap size: size 1
The wig was cut and styled/curled by me. I used a curling wand to achieve these loose summer curls. If you’d like to see what method I used to get curls like these click here.
Here is the wig BEFORE

|Pros|
Excellent, soft quality of hair
Minimal tangling
Smells awesome upon arrival, definitely a good quality product
Holds curls really well
Cap size was perfect! Everything was aligned where it should be (nape, sideburns, etc)
|Cons|
Density is too low, wig doesn’t feel full enough for me
Would I recommend them? | Absolutely
Would I be a return customer? | Yes!
That’s pretty much all I’ve got on this wig. I’ve been getting so many compliments on it and I can’t wait to do my next little project with it!
Any of you ever tried any wigs from RPGShow.com?
If so leave a comment down below and let me know if you have a favorite!

Ombre; and Spring Days that Feel Like Summer…
Categories: Makeup Tutorials


I’ll never get over ombre, ever. So don’t try to make me!

 

Many of you know how huge of a fan I am of color, often times that transcends into my wardrobe.

Really I am not a huge fan of accessories, I let the attention shine on the beautiful colors of this dress and paired it with a nude handbag (not shown) as well as pearl studs.

As for the makeup statement pieces like these are best paired with subtle, clean makeup. Perhaps even a pop of bold lipcolor/blush and lashes. THIS LOOK RIGHT HERE is a sneak peak at a tutorial that comes at very high demand. So stay tuned :D

 

Toodles! <3

How amazing is Jessica Sanchez makeup look for this video featuring Ne-Yo?!

Absolutely DIG how it’s smokey and dark, yet glittery at the same time. IT almost looks shiney as she dances and turns her head side to side. Loves it!
