Pop of Color: 2 Makeup Looks + Tutorials


Happy Tutorial-Thursday Beauties! The new season is here -- though it still feels like winter in NY -- but, I'm really excited to play with a new palette and add a pop of color to my makeup routine. To help me realize my color ambitions, Lancome has just launched its "French Paradise" Summer Collection, inspired by the colors of the Mediterranean. This blue-coral makeup collection couldn't be  more beautiful, so today, I've put together not one, but two looks just for you, including a video and a step-by-step tutorial. Let me know your thoughts in the comments section and don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel for more videos.

Nail Art: Bright Like A Diamond


Hi beauties! This week, I'm shining bright like a diamond, so I'm keeping it literal with this contrasting, black and white negative space mani. Would you wear it and if so, where to? I used Ciaté "Snow Virgin" white polish, Nubar black nail art pen and some Swarovski elements to embellish my hand-painted design. What do you think?

Easy Contouring Makeup Tutorial for the Novice


Hi beauties!! NEW video is ready for you and this one is a highly requested, easy, everyday makeup tutorial about approachable Contouring and Highlighting. I get a lot of questions about this hot topic, so I wanted to make a series of videos showcasing various types of techniques, products and approaches to contouring. Depending on our individual bone-structure or features, some of us can benefit from a dramatic, high-contrast contoured look, while others may suffer the adverse effect. Naturally, due to my prominent cheekbones, strong jaw-line and brows, I fall in the ladder category and gain much more from a subtle contoured look. Today, I'm starting with just that: the easiest, one-product contoured look that's perfect for the novice or for those who already have strong features naturally.

"Pretty in Pink" Vegas Makeup & Resort Style


Hello my beauties!! It's been a while since my last post due to the production of the Stardust Tour beauty event, which took place this Saturday in Las Vegas. We had the most amazing time and turnout; I'll definitely be posting a thorough recap of the event later this week when I get back home. Currently, I'm still in Vegas, enjoying some down time while my flight is delayed for two days due to the massive winter storm Juno that's fast approaching NY and the tri-state area. I can't say that I'm complaining, nor that I'm not enjoying this sunny Las Vegas weather, so here's a quick post celebrating the beauty of the desert through color, makeup and fashion!

"Negative Space" Versace-Inspired Nail Art


Hey beauties!! Today's mani-Monday post was inspired by none other than Kate Hudson's Versace gown worn last night to the Golden Globe awards. I had a few best dressed favorites, but thought that Kate's gown had some interesting contrasting cutouts that would make for some cool negative space nail art. This was one of the fastest designs I've ever created and is perfect for this week because I won't feel bad when I have to take it off for a shoot on Thursday!

Winter Makeup & Fashion: The Snow Queen


Hey dolls! Happy Friday! The winter season is here and as many of you know, I absolutely despise the cold and usually never care much for winter fashion or beauty. I am one of those true home-bodies during the winter weather and would happily hibernate for 3 months straight if I had the option. This year, however, my January is busier than ever before, and I don't have the liberty to stay at home like I used to. Plus, I'm older and have a ton more responsibilities to take care of, so a girl's gotta do what a girl's got to do lol... As always, I'm heavily inspired by my environment, so instead of sulking and whining about the cold, I've chosen to embrace it and dress it up -- winter bunny style!! Today's makeup and fashion post is inspired by the flurries, the ice queens, and the snow divas that make it work no matter the season!

Mattes 2015: Matte Nails, Matte Makeup


Hello my beauties!! It's my first Mani-Monday of 2015, but I've got lots more lined up for today's post. This season is all about the matte finish, we're seeing lots of matte makeup and nails, velvety-soft skin finishes and smokey eyes, and virtually every brand is coming out with those coveted matte lipsticks that everyone craves. Today, I'm overdosing on the matte trend and wearing it from head to toe (or fingertip) and I've even got a quick matte lip video tutorial for you all. Let me know what you think in the comments section below.

Festive Makeup: Graphic Eyes, Bold Lips


Happy New Year my beauties and cuties!! Hope 2015 brings you everything you've ever wished for and then some. Thank you for sticking by me and showing me all your love and support, you guys are amazing and I'm forever grateful. 

Today on the blog: my New Year's makeup recap. Unfortunately, I caught a bad cold right before the new year, so my celebration consisted of staying in and cozying it up with the fam. Of course, being sick doesn't mean that I have to look sick and give up on life. With that in mind, I put together a fun, celebratory makeup look in hopes to cheer myself up... and guess what? It worked! Here it is and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did :))

NYE: GLAM Makeup & Nails!!


Hey gorgeous and Happy Holidays!! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas (if you celebrate) and are in good spirits, ready to ring in the new year!! On my end, I've enjoyed a much needed week off and am back today with a quick makeup & nails post just in time for NYE. I went for a clean, easy-to-replicate, glamorous look fit for a New Year's Ball or Gala. This makeup is simple enough to wear with a backless gown and an updo and is perfect for those of you who prefer natural makeup. I'll try to squeeze in another post on Wednesday focusing on high-drama makeup to go with your sequins dresses and glitzy soirees. Cheers!!

Chic Cool Makeup for Holiday Parties


Hey, hey beauties!! 'Tis the season for holiday parties, so I've come up with this chic work-appropriate look that can easily transition for the after-hour office shindig. I'm sticking to non-traditional Christmas colors for this one and opting for blue (I actually wore it to a Hanukkah party). Blue can be a bit intimidating to some people and not just for the office, but in general, however, it's actually quite flattering when sticking to matte eyeshadows. Read more to see what I mean :)
