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.

Gold Collar | H&M

 

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

Categories: Makeup Tutorials


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!

Best Prom Tutorial EVER
Categories: Makeup Tutorials


Who’s ready for a prom tutorial?! I am!! I am! *raises hand*

So I brought my little sister Toyin to be my model :) this is her senior year and will be attending prom this year so she wanted to try out some makeup looks.

I know that makeup shopping can be overwhelming and even more so when you’re a teen on a budget, so I did my best to use good quality products that were on the more affordable side with just a few products that were a bit more pricey. I did my best to keep the total very balanced!
