About last night…

Who doesn’t love a solid lip, simple winged liner, and bold brows? This is the best look when you are strapped for time, but need to have a great face (which happens more often than not for me lol). I actually went out on the limb and tried a new liner here. I’m still a […]

Face, Face, Face!

Hello, all!   I’ve realized that I haven’t been keeping up with my makeup posts…like…at all. Time to get back on the horse! This was a recent face I did for a photoshoot that had to be cancelled last minute. The below zero temps and snow have been killing the Northeast! Anyways, products used: Estée […]

The Perfect Nail

I visited my favorite nail salon today and couldn't be any happier with how my claws turned out. The past two years, I have been loyal to the stiletto style. I've recently changed it up and gone back to the good 'ol rounded-square. I brought in my own polishes: Essie's “Sand Tropez” and Obsessive Compulsive […]

The RiRis

My new babies. MAC's RiRi Woo is, by far, the best matte red lipstick I've ever owned (and trust me…I've had hundreds). I've worn it for 8hrs straight and it didn't even budge. I'm also not just saying this because RiRi is f*cking awesome. Her collaboration with MAC was spot on. I decided to get […]

Vice 2

Here we go with yet another eye shadow palette that I'm in love with. Vice 2 is the newest creation in the Urban Decay line. This palette has most certainly lived up to it's hype. There are so many rich, glittery colors that are perfect for this time of year. My favorite is a dark, […]

Signature look

  For as long as I've worn eyeliner, I've always painted on the winged ends aka “cat eyes”. I tried finding the perfect one and in the early 2000's my mom introduced me to Smashbox. The eyeliner has to be applied by a special long handled brush. This can also be purchased through Smashbox. It's […]

Naked & Tarte

Ok…so I am a huge fan of following makeup artists on Instagram.  The past year, I have stumbled across tutorials involving the Naked Palette from Urban Decay and Cheek Stain by Tarte.  I disregarded them, because a) I felt I had a bazillion eyeshadows just like the palette and b) I was never a fan […]

Mario Badescu

I am always in the hunt for the perfect skin care products. I love makeup, but it definitely wreaks havoc on my face. About a year ago, I tried Mario Badescu’s drying lotion for zapping problem spots overnight. It worked like a charm! I have gone on to buy a ridiculous amount of his products. […]

Makeup

A lot of people ask me if I do my own hair and makeup shoots. The answer…yes. I haven’t found an MUA that I’ve truly liked just yet ( I had a horrible experience with a nutty one a few years ago). Plus, I truly love doing hair and makeup.   I have an arsenal […]
