Let’s Talk Make-Up: Gold Eyes

22 Apr

As of late, I’ve gone out to dinner with friends on the weekends as it is a nice change. Usually the honey and I stay in or stay local. When we first dated I was a newbie to LA and I wanted to go to all the posh mainstream or like my husband says  foo foo restaurants. But ever since we got our furry four-legged kids I’d rather hang out or go to places that are pet friendly.  So during my latest dinner dates out with my friends I decided to change  my look.  I felt sultry seductive sexy eyes was the right fit for a dinner date. Take a peek it’s only 7 steps away.

I used a shade that was two shades darker than my skin on my nose to give it a bit of definition and shine.

Foundation: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer ( love this stuff)

Blush: Mac- Warm Soul

Gloss: Bare Minerals-Charisma

Mascara: Cover Girl

Earrings: Yours truly ( my current fav)

All the colors I used are from the Urban Decay Naked Pallet 1.

1. Apply primer all over eye lids, I love urban decay, it comes in a purple tube.

2. Apply any gold shimmer on eye lids.

3. Apply dark brown only on the corners of your eye, forming a V and fill in.

4 Put a soft ire-decent white in the tear ducks of your eyes to make your eyes pop.

5 Put a natural light brown with a hint of shine under your brow and blend everything together.

6. Put false lashes and  thin eyeliner ( I prefer brown )

7. Voila !!

Fall Layering

3 Dec

Don’t be afraid of color  during the fall. You would be surprised how many people appreciate color during the season and you mustn’t be shy about layering and mixing patterns.  If layering, keep one article of clothing fitted, either the upper or lower waist and you will be safe. I posted some layering photos giving you a better idea of how to balance the look without looking frumpy.

Take a peek.
