I just want to say "Thank you" for all the love. I have been on my blog posting role since last week, yayyy!!! Thanks to everyone who has commented, entered the giveaway (which is still going on) and those who even visit my blog. I ♥ u all!!
Today FOTD is how I would wear my red eyeshadow. I don't do red eyeshadow eye looks, I am not a fan of reds unless it's a lipstick or blush but in this case I actually need to use it more because I am definitely loving this look.

Here are the pictures of today's look

Products used:
L'Oreal Studio Secrets Perfecting base
Black Radiance perfect blend concealers
L'Oreal HIP f/d's mixed
Ben Nye luxury powder: Banana visage
Blush: 26 e/s & blush palette (lighter brown color)
N.Y.C. Sun2Sun Bronzer: Bronze Mist (contour & highlight)

ELF primer
Ben Nye Lumiere cream color wheel : red color (base)

If you decide to try this look, you don't have to do a red lip color as me, you could substitute for a neutral color or just some colorless lip gloss.

FOTD: Love The Way U Lie Inspired

Hello Lovelies,

Thanks for stopping by. As from my title I know you all may have an idea of what look if the Face of the Day. hint hint **
If you have recently seen the new Eminem ft. Rihanna video for the single Love the Way You Lie. At first I hated the song because I thought for sure she was bringing back the whole CB drama with this single, but this song actually is very catchy and is growing on me. I love Eminem as a rapper, he can drop some tunes. So let's move on because talking about music is a whole other subject especially from a music lover as myself.

I loved the way Rihanna makeup was a simple smokey eye, nothing over-dramatic but yet it is wearable.
Here are pictures of my recreation

EOTD: Limeade U Say

Hello lovelies,

It's humid season so I decided why not do a green look which represents lime colors. I tend to stay away from greens as I think it a color that doesn't suit me. I did this look and kinda think I failed, I hated the lashes I used after I applied them and of course I am not the best in applying lashes to myself to the decent extent as with my skills in applying to someone else.

So here goes my pictures:
*Don't mind the lash root showing. Sorry for my fail in this.

Products Used

Jordana eye primer
NYX Jumbo Pencil: Milk
Ms. Rose/ Quiyan 40 Wet e/s palette: Lime green color (lid)
**120 palette: colors: B4---H3---C8---     B5 (browbone blending color), B12 (highlight)
Physician Formula For Green Eyes: Black cream liner
La Charme lashes #66
Rimmel Sexy curves mascara

Brows: Jordana Fabu-liner: Brown
Black Radiance Perfect Blend concealer: Latte
Maybelline clear mascara

**Note: Check the side of my page for the 1st edition 120 palette color coding

Be Fabulous!

FOTD:Golden Yellow Eyes

Hello lovelies,

I hope all is well with everyone and I sure hope everyone had a nice weekend. It has been a while since I blogged, it sure due to the humid weather and being tired from the extreme heat too. I did this look a while back so it will be my Face of the Day for today.

Here are pictures:

Products Used:

-Revlon Beyond Naturals primer
-Maybelline Age Rewind f/d: Cocoa
-Ben Nye Luxury powder: Banana Visage
-ELF Studio blush: Blushing Rose
-ELF Studio blush: Gotta Glow (highlight)
-Generic 6 contour blush palette (dark color for contour)

-Jordana eye primer
-Ben Nye Lumiere wheel: yellow color
-Ben Nye Lumiere e/s: Sun Yellow (lid)
-NYX pigment: Walnut (crease & middle bottom lashline)
-WnW Vanity palette: matte brown e/s (outer V & bottom lashline)
-L'Oreal HIP duo e/s: Flare: lighter color (highlight) & Orange color (browbone)
-Lanmei pigment: Golden color (tear duct)
-Physician Formula cream eyeliner: Sparkle black
-Rimmel Sexy Curves mascara

-WnW l/s: Spotlight Red (Translucent powder dusted on top to mattify)

**Do you see the condition of my hair (mess, mess), I am getting to start to hate the fact that I permed it and looking towards going natural. I don't know what to do with it because I so easily change my mind. I am gonna have my hairstylist perm it this week and have it in a bob cut without adding any additional hair extensions to it. If I can maintain it for a couple weeks with the short cut then I'll possible change my mind about the natural process. Until then we'll see because with this humidity and my long hair or wigs, it's a major no no. Sorry for my hair rant (smiles)!

Be fabulous lovelies!
