Day of the Dead makeup

I decided to try my hand at the Day of the Dead makeup design this weekend, and I must say that I enjoyed myself. 'Frankenstorm' came our way, so I guess I can say that I was inspired.. The key to this makeup is to just have fun with it! The items that came in handy for this look are: BH Cosmetics brush set, any black gel eyeliner paint pot, white face paint/foundation, jewels, lash glue for the jewels, various eye shadow colors or face paints, makeup remover, q-tips, makeup wedges and wipes *phew*. Happy Halloween!

MoMo

I'm not a professional makeup artist, but occasionally I'll do my friends makeup before a night out on the town. I did just that for my cousin, Morgan. She is a natural beauty, but she wanted to show off a little color on her lids this particular night.

Marilyn Monroe: Scarlet Ibis

I was beyond excited when M.A.C released the Marilyn Monroe Collection. The lipstick sold out almost immediately online and in stores...and I can see why. It's fantastic!! My favorite color by far is Scarlet Ibis. It's an amazing red/orange that looks great with just about everything.
 
Have a great day!

Marilyn Monroe: Deeply Adored & Vintage Vamp

Like the rest of the world, I was dying to purchase items from the Marilyn Monroe Collection by M.A.C. I was working on the day that it hit stores but, fortunately, I had friends who picked up the items that I really wanted: Deeply Adored lipstick and Vintage Vamp nail polish. I love the deep wine color of the polish, and a girl can never have too many red lipsticks. The lipstick is a little darker than true red, and the polish gives me that dark/glam look that I love. I hope you enjoy my MM inspired photos!

Stay tuned for an upcoming cosmetics giveaway... ;)

Fall Colors

I wanted to do an outfit post this week, but I was under the weather. Seasonal allergies get me every time :(
 
So, instead of an outfit post, I decided to do a post dedicated to fall colors. Fall is my favorite time of year (after the allergies subside). I love the cool days and colorful display of falling leaves. I especially love layering fall clothes.
 
 
What are your favorite fall pieces? Sweaters? Blazers? Boots? Scarves?
 
 
Happy Wednesday!

From top to bottom: Reva flats, J. Crew sweater, Sally Hansen Nail Polish (Raisin the Bar, Wine Not and Haute Chocolate), Zara sleeveless sweater, Coach sneakers (really old), BCBG dress (also really old), gold polishes (M.A.C Immortal gold and Maybelline Color Show Bold Gold)
