OMG Viva Glam Nicki

I went crazy when I seen the color of this lipstick. Nicki Minaj join forces with Mac for their famous viva glam collection about a year ago and she came out with this marvelous lipstick. The color is amazing.
It is pigmented and it has a little dry formula but it looks semi satin to matte.  The color is a neon coral pink literally on my lips. It's amazing like pow in your face gorgeous. It cost like a typical Mac lipstick is which is $15.

****will look different on different skin tones

I took pictures in my car going to work because I wore this today. Pictures of the lipstick is true to color maybe more neon and brighter person.

How to: Eyeshadow mistakes

Do you ever wonder how do makeup artist or girls with makeup skills know how to blend so well? Ever wonder why your eyeshadow doesn't come out the way you want it to because the colors went everywhere on the lid? Well here's a few eyeshadow mistakes that are come and how you could avoid it.

First mistake is not having a blending brush. Standard blending brush is a small, very soft fluffy brush meant to
only blend and extend the color of your eye shadow. So having that will help if you wanted to blend two colors together seamlessly.

Another mistake is not having two blending brushes. When applying color to the lid you want to make sure that you apply a blending transition color and then with another clean blending brush, will allow you to blend out any harsh lines created.

Next mistake is the outer corner mess. You know what I mean. Especially with darker colors in the outer corners you would want a clean crisp line. Not only does that lift you eyes but it looks professionally done. You could use tape and place them on the outer corners before eyeshadow application. Or take a cuttip and makeup remover and just wipe it going up towards the end of the brows and violaa your BEAT!

Last is knowing the eye shape. From monolids to wideset eyes, you could learn so many tricks. Like how to contour to create perfect cut creased eyes and how to shape your brows. So knowing that you could get nice with your eyeshadow application.

Quick tip- Always highlight the inner corners and brow bone no matter what eye shape because it will make your eyes look lifted, wide awake and appear larger.

My Nail Design for the week I thought would be cool to show

Until next time xoxo : )

Drugstore Edition: Great Oil-Control primer for Summer Weather

Well summer is here now and the days are getting hotter but its hot and our t zones shine more and we break  in sweat and get oily. How do I keep my makeup from getting to that point is.................Milk Of Magnesia.

This is a great primer for summer because it is known to be for crampy stomachs and in the formula, it mattifies and takes out the extra oil in the stomach or even on the face. If your looking to travel to warmer climates, take that bad boy and see no shine through out the day. I'v been using it for a year and LOVE IT! Great for oily skin.

Trending :Ombre Lips

Ombre has been a trend since the winter of 2012. Its such a cool trick which is basically highlighting and contouring the lips using a darker color on the outer edges and a light color in the middle.

You could basically use any kind of color as long as it is from dark to light or opposite. Its really nice if done properly. Start from the outside and the work the product in to lips until it becomes an ombre affect.
