#CalmBeforeTheStorm...

It's eerily quiet and still in NYC... public transportation is out of service and store aisles are empty... big X's criss cross most windows... everyone is awaiting Irene... My dad's borough of Staten Island has been evacuated and he fled to Canada... statuses are updating, tweeting, and buzzing at lightning speed, yet there is no sight of Irene... except when she appears on my caller ID as my mom... her name is Irene :)

I'm not a doubter, skeptic and/or conspiracy theorist, but I'm basking in the calm before the storm with my beer in my hand and my keyboard under my fingertips. Call it capitalizing, but I'm a blogger and I gotta follow the buzz while my electricity is still on. So, enough about Irene (sorry mom); time for my hurricane themed maquillage du jour worn last week on another stormy day for my friend Kenya's bday.
 Read more for products, suggestions, and pix :)


Check out "Irene's" reflection in the mirror; light & bright outside my window :)

EYES: Urban Decay Ammo Palette & NYX 10 Color Palette in Haute Model. With the exception of a few colors, I find these two palettes very similar, and since NYX is much cheaper, it's a pretty close dupe to the Ammo Palette :))



I love the Whispies because they are very dramatic and natural at the same time (an impossible combination)

LIPS: 

view from above, loving those lashes :)

All laced up with the beautiful bday girl. Kenya says it always rains on her bday... 
I say rain gods never leave her without a prezzie from above :)))

bisous,

    I'm waiting for the hurricane as well, tonight probably. I really don't know what to expect but at least now it's down to a category 1, so hopefully it won't cause too much trouble.

  13. Love the look! And hey, good for you for staying calm before all this. I mean, it's a force of nature - there's nothing you can do to stop it, so no point getting stressed out on top of it all. Just stay safe, and enjoy the candlelight when you lose power!

  20. guys, thank you so much for all your kind words, it really means a lot to me. The hurricane hasn't hit me as of yet, but it's been raining hard with gusting winds all night. I can't say I slept easy... We're expecting 70mph winds when the epicenter hits in about another hour or two... we'll see. Right now I have power and hot water, and I really hope it stays that way. A lot of my friends are sitting without electricity since late last night...

  30. Love that you've pulled inspiration straight from the headlines. I forsee a whole series of natural disaster inspired looks, seriously! Sandstorms, mudslides, tornados, thunderstorms, the whole thing. A 2012 Series. Wait, nevermind, I really like that idea and kind of want to steal it back .... damn.

    I digress. You look really pretty (duh), and I love the subtle purple shades in the outer corner, reminds me of the weird tones a stormy sky can get right before the sky unleashes its fury. Ominous, yet beautiful.

    Hope family and friends stay safe in the storm!
