FOTD: French Toast & Orange Juice

Hello lovelies,

No it's not a food post... hahahahaha but a FOTD with a bold spring color and simple eye makeup. I have been seeing lots of orange lip colors being the center of a makeup look for this season, so I wanted to experiment with what I have in my collection before I actually go invest in some MAC orange/coral lipsticks. So this is what I came up with. This look can be worn to a movie night, a shopping date or even a night out with a mono color outfit. Let's get to it, hope you enjoy.

that NYX eyeshadow is the bizninz as blush

look at that lip color: Amazingly beautiful

didn't add lashes but you can if you choose to recreate

Products used:

L'Oreal perfecting primer
Black Opal stick f/d: Beautiful Bronze
MAC studio finish concealer: NW45 (under eye)
Maybelline Superstay f/d: Cocoa mixed w/ Revlon PhotoReady: Cappuccino 
N.Y.C. Translucent powder
NYX e/s: Africa (blush)
MAC MSF: Stereo Rose (blush)

ELF eye primer
Jordana eye primer
NYX Jumbo pencil: French Fries
Urban Decay Bk of Shadows 3 e/s: Smog (lid), Rockstar (crease)
MAC e/s: Rule (browbone)
MAC e/s: Sketch (bottom lashline)
Wet n Wild bronzer: Tahitian Tan (highlight)
Sally's Girl e/s: Chocolate (2nd highlight)
Wet n Wild coloricon eyeliner pencil: bronze color (lid & waterline)
Wet n Wild Megachrome eyeliner pencil: Antique Amethyst (outer lid)
Covergirl Lashblast mascara
Maybelline One on One mascara

Random 66 lip palette: orange color H1
OCC lip tar: Beta
NYX round l/g: Apricot ♥

Now let me break it down to you: if you don't have NYX eyeshadow in Africa, you need it especially my chocolate skin ladies. It's amazingly gorgeous on our dark skin tone, just gives that sun-kissed glow.  Nevertheless if you are experimenting with orange lip-colors but don't want to splurge on a brand name lipstick some alternatives to try are the Ebay random lip palettes or Wet n Wild and Milani have a few lip colors in that color range for less than $6.  Not a fan of lipsticks, some recommended cheaper alternatives would be in the NYX brand.

Beauties I would love to get some orange lipcolors recommendation from you, so far I have added to my "to buy list": MAC So Chaud and Morange, any other recommendations?

Be Fabulous & smart !

Hello lovelies,

I hope you all had a beautiful weekend. This weekend was a week of bad news for me. One of my nephew is on life support due to a car accident and I am in shock at this time. Nevertheless I pray you all keep him in your prayers as Tuesday they may be taking him off life support as he is brain dead and in critical condition. Please keep my nephew and his family in your prayers.

This FOTD is just showing a look I did couple days ago, I don't remember the particular products I have used. Oops!!

** FYI: You may see me in the same color shirt in my pictures, well it's because I am in my work uniform shirt and pretty much I take pictures when I am dressed and ready to head out the door.

Well lovelies if you have questions on this look, please feel free to comment with your questions below, I will try my best to answer in regards to the FOTD.
Be blessed all and remember to let your love ones know how much you love them, if even a simple note on the refrigerator or bathroom mirror saying 'I love you.'

Be Fabulous and smart
