Who Doesn't Love a Good Bargain?! (pt. 2)

Hi guys :)) The above pic is a collection of current MAC lipsticks from my recent Cosmetics Company Outlet MAC mini-haul. As you know, I've been spending some time in PA, so whenever I'm there, I go on a makeup shopping binge at this amazing discount cosmetics store. The CCO carries many luxury brands including MAC, Bobbi Brown, Clinique, etc. and is usually stocked with discontinued or overstocked products. Every now and then, however, the outlet gets a shipment of current, highly sought-after items, such as Impassioned lipstick--I can't tell you how many times it's been sold out at my local MAC counter--and now, I CAN FINALLY CALL MYSELF A PROUD OWNER!!! YES!!! Anyway, I really feel like I made out like a makeup bandit, so I had to share this proud moment with you guys :)) 

P. S. I've blogged about the CCO before, but this is the first time I discovered items that are so current and in-demand. So, if you live in the States and have been looking for some Violetta or Impassioned, now you know where to go :))

Signature Liner, Go-to Nude Lips

Bonjour mes amis!! Today's post is showcasing a simple makeup look centered around creative eyeliner and nude lips. This maquillage may not be for every day, but it's not super dramatic either, so it's more of a concept, rather than an actual ready-to-wear look. As you know, I love to use my face as a canvas for makeup art, so this look is a work in progress :)) I'm trying to come up with my signature masterpiece haha... stay tuned!!

Nail Art Avant-Garde

Hi guys :)) Today's post is a quick nail art and a pictorial tutorial through instagram and frametastic photos. This nail design is a bit personal to me; I was inspired by Russian Avant-Garde Art (I'm on this whole Russian kick lately), and I wanted to create something that would be pleasing to my eye and personal taste. I hope you enjoy my take on this contemporary style as much as I was inspired by these thought-provoking abstract works. 

P. S. I'm out of the state once again, so my photos are low-res iphone quality at best... womp womp... I tried my best to jazz them up with cool frames and funky filters, I hope it suffices :))

A la Russe

Дорогие Друзья!! (Dear Friends!!)

Today's special post is dedicated to my family, friends, and fellow beauty lovers from all over the world. A couple of weeks ago I was very lucky to win a makeup giveaway from the awesome Alx of, and thought what better way to show my appreciation than to do a look using all the products. My package was sent from Canada and although we're neighbors, Alx is still one of my international friends. If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know I'm all about different cultures, languages, etc., so today's look is culture-inspired to celebrate my readers across the globe. Before I tell you what my look is, can you guess from the picture which culture I'm portraying?
