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.

Face: MAC PRO Longwear Concealer and foundation
Eyes:  MAC Painterly Paint Pot,  MAC Jigs and Jives and Blue Brown Pigments
Cheeks: NARS Super Orgasm
Lips: MAC Lip gloss in C-Thru

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!!!

This last one was a spontaneous picture taken on a wall near South Congress. Spontaneous shots are by far my favorite because the picture always comes out amazing!
A big THANK YOU to Star for letting us use her boutique for the photo shoot and to Jonathan who capture amazing pictures! <3

SoLa Fashion Exhibit

I attended the SoLa Fashion Exhibit on Thursday and here are some photos of the fabulous outfits that SoLa has to offer this season! 5% of all sales that night benefited Safe Place which I think was a great way to give back to the community as well as showcase new fashion. I also really liked that it was an exhibit versus a show because you could really look at the models, the outfits, and the jewelry unlike a fashion show were they zoom by you and if you blink you have missed something!

In attendance some very awesome ladies!

Bloggers Gone Wild!

A group of us fashionistas went out this past weekend for a great night on the town! Sandhya called it a "glittery debauchery" and we definitely had a blast getting ready for these pictures which I think describe us more than you know! We went out to a couple clubs but my favorite was Enzo, a new club that is amazing! The dance floor lights up, the music is great, and the atmosphere is just right for a bunch of girls to dance around and have fun!
