Sun-Kissed Makeup

Hey Dolls, Did everyone get a chance to watch the 2011 BET Awards?! My girl Beyonce ripped the stage as ALWAYS! She performed 2 songs from the new album live from Glastonbury, England. I have to divulge; she was the only one I was looking forward to seeing lol. Did I mention, I got her new album titled “4”, a week before it hit stores?! Yes……! a week before the entire world gets it. The album does drop tomorrow for those who are interested. Now back to regular scheduling :-/ I wanted to bring another makeup look for summer. This look is natural, yet it has a pop of color for fun in the sun. I listed all the products I used on my face:

Pink Passion Makeup

Hey Dolls, I’m here again with another makeup look. So, I present to you Pink Passion. I have a propensity to mix high and low makeup cosmetics. I have to admit that I use to be a MAC addict for 6 years, but after experimenting with other brands, I’ve now added non-MAC cosmetics to my collection. 
This crazy makeup collection developed at the age of 10, with playing in my mother’s Fashion Fair makeup * The 25 and up crowd are very familiar w/ this brand *. My mother let me play with her makeup, but always warned to have everything washed off my face, before my father got home from work lol. Playtime in makeup during childhood has developed into a makeup addiction as an adult, or in the words of my girl Jen, “Makeup Whore” lol. Feel free to leave a comment or question. Enjoy!

Bronzer

Hola Dolls! What better way to fake a sun-kissed tan? Bring out the bronzer baby…….!So, I’ve been so busy lately with no time to hit up the beach, let alone the pool. While everyone is walking around glazed and brown, and some burnt badly, I’m rocking my MAC bronzer. I applied my bronzer with a Kabuki brush, and added to my face & neck. But, make sure to moisture your face, and neck before applying bronzer. I will eventually make it out to the beach, but until then why not fake it?!I listed my favorite bronzers below.
  • NYX’s Tango with bronzing stix in Cha Cha with the Sun God
  • Cover Girl’s Natural hue Mineral Bronzer
  • Revlon ColorStay Mineral Bronzer in Deep Bronze * NOT PICTURED *
  • MAC bronzer in Refined Golden
  • NARS South beach multiple

Purple Haze Makeup

Hey Dolls, I hope all of you had a blessed Father’s day. A special shout-out to all the fathers in the world!!! I love my father, who is my backbone, and my inspiration. For, those that personally know me are very aware that I have the personality of my father. I met with the family for lunch for the Father’s day celebration. It’s always fun, and laughter when the entire family gets together. We’ve all grown so much, and have hectic schedules. It was fun to see all my siblings, and their significant other “wink”, Ambrosia. We inundated my father with gifts, and individually said something special to him. The best memory I have of my father as a child is going to the park every Saturday. My dad would bring me, and my sister’s bikes to the park. We would ride our bikes all around park with the other kids. After, a long day at the park, he would treat us to ice cream. To this day, I still love the ice cream sandwiches :-p 


As for my makeup, I can’t do foundation in the summer-time.  So, I used a tinted moisturizer to even out my skin-tone. I applied lavender, and dark purple on my eyes. I paired my eyes, with pink gloss, and bronzer on the cheeks. I listed all the products on my face below.

Face:
Cover Girl’s Natural Hue in Warm Caramel
MAC bronzer in Refined Golden
Rock & Republic Pressed Powder in Angora to set face
Cheeks:
MAC blush in Peaches
Eyes:
NYX e/s palette from the Runway Collection
MAC Zoom Lash mascara in Zoomblack
Prestige liquid eyeliner
NYX lashes
Lips:
NYX lipgloss in Mauve

NYX Cosmetics Haul

Hey Dolls! As many of us makeup junkies adore great sales on cosmetics, many of us weren’t happy with NYX Cosmetics. NYX recently had their anniversary sale, where everything was priced at $1.20 on their website. However, they weren’t prepared for the millions of makeup junkies that wanted to partake in the sale. This led their server to crash, which left many people livid. I went to NYX’s  Facebook fan page to read the comments. Let me just say, the comments were explicit to the point of no return. NYX apologized repetitively, and offered everyone 50% off, and free shipping in exchange for your email address. For, those who emailed NYX their email address received a special code to get the discount and free shipping. Once, I received my code, I placed my order for 3 eye-shadow palettes, and 20 eyelashes. Surprisingly, I received my items within a week of placing my order. I am VERY pleased with my items. I just hope NYX is better prepared for next year’s anniversary sale.

LaFemme Blushes

Hi Dolls! I hope everyone had a fun Memorial Day. I smelled BBQ in the air, while running errands. Yum! So, after almost 2 months, I finally got my LaFemme blushes from Makeupmania.com. I can honestly say, it was worth the wait. I called the main office after a month of waiting for my order. I spoke to Heather, who reassured me the blushes would be shipped out ASAP. Not only did she expedite my order, but she also waived the shipping, due to the inconvenience. I ordered 4 pan blushes to add to my blush palette. I absolutely love my new blushes!
