New Year, Big Bang

The New Year is right around the corner and I wanted to go out with a Bang..literally.  I have been wanting a change for a while and since I am too scared to cut my hair short I was convinced by Kat Tran, an up and coming hairstylist, to cut my bangs. Kat did a fabulous job and I have been in love with my new hairstyle ever since! So goodbye 2010 and I am excited to bring on new changes, new adventures, and new endeavors in 2011!

Holiday Looks: Dramatic Lashes

For this photo shoot I wanted to emphasize Brigitte's eyes and used a very dramatic eye lash and kept everything else simple.The fierce lashes creates a bold contrast that is stunning against her blue eyes. 

Vinh styled the outfits from local boutiques Dog and Pony, Buydefinition and Blackbird. If you have not already checked out these amazing boutiques you must stop by and check them out.

Holiday Looks: Smokey, Glittery, Glamorous

Some of you might be thinking why is she wearing a pretty summer shirt in the middle of winter and why is this called Holiday Looks when it doesn't look wintery at all, well in Texas, winter comes and goes and this past weekend felt more like spring reaching temperatures in the 70s. As much as I want to bring out my winter coats and boots it just will have to wait until mother nature decides to bring Texas a "cold front." The weather, however, made for a perfect Saturday afternoon at the park. The pictures were taken at Houston's water wall near the galleria.

Holiday Looks: Purple Lip Passion

I asked my lovely friend Andrea who is a writer and fashionista to do a vintage shoot with me and Jenny at Coffee-A-Deli coffee shop. I wanted to take the classic holiday red lip and vamp it up with today's fall trend, purple lips. Andrea has an amazing vintage wardrobe and I knew she would be perfect for the part! The lip color I used was Bed Head's Passion it is a deep purple-maroon shade that is great for those who don't want to go too purple this holiday season!

Thanks to Coffee-A-Deli for letting us shoot on location.

Holiday Looks:Long Last-Eye Opening Makeup

I recently purchased some new MAC products and wanted to test them out for myself. I am definitely in love with what I purchased which was the new Pro Longwear Concealer and the Pro Longwear SPF 10 Foundation. It lasts for 15 hours and after trying it out, it works! I never had to reapply or worry that I would be losing its wonderful coverage throughout the day. Ladies, its definitely a must have for the holiday parties coming up!

I am addicted to blending, especially when it comes to my eyes. However, I wanted to create the appearance of a larger lid for the holidays so I applied Painterly followed by Jigs and Jives on my lid. Next I applied the Blue Brown shadow on my crease higher than where I would originally apply it. This gives the eye an open effect while still adding depth. I followed by blending the Blue Brown shadow up into my brow bone. The trick is not connecting or rounding out the darker shadow on the outer corner of the eye but putting it farther out away from the corner of your eye.

Animal Instincts

I am in love with a local boutique called Dog and Pony near the drag; this past weekend I stopped by and did a mini photo shoot with Rose, Vinh, and Jonathan (our photographer).  While shooting, I made a fabulous purchase of gold snake skin earrings; make sure to look for them in the photos!

Makeup: 5 Smokey Pigments Mac Holiday set. I used the Naked all over the eyes, Jigs & Jive in the crease as well as Blue Brown to darken and create the smokey look. For my lips, I used Jigs & Jive with a clear lip gloss which is why I love pigments because they can be used on eyes, lips, cheeks, and even as nail polish ladies!!!
