"Glitter Milkshake" or "Wedding Day Glitters" Nail Art!

Bonjour mes amis! I think I'm in love! I found the world's most sophisticated glitter polish and I'm so obsessed with it -- I kind of want to lick it! I'm talking about none other than China Glaze Nail Lacquer in It's A Trap-eze from the Cirque du Soleil Worlds Away Collection. This is my favorite CG collection thus far, and It's A Trap-eze! is my number one pick. For the sake of this post, I took the liberty of decorating on top, but I'll tell you a secret: I actually wore this polish ALONE for three whole days... that's how much I love it! This is the first time I've done that in over 2 years :)

Pink-n-Green for Spring!

Salut mes belles! Valentine's Day has come and gone, which means that my month-long V-Day makeup prep is now finished... yay!! As much as I enjoyed it, I'm kinda relieved that it's over and I'm so excited to jump back into makeup art and re-introduce fresh color combos to my repertoire. For the remainder of February, I'll be creating looks without any special events in mind, for the "just because" occasion. With spring right around the corner, I'm focusing on green and sprucing it up with pink, to showcase and inspire you to try one of my favorite color pairings. Together, pink and green are fun, bright and refreshing; the combo revives dull complexions, revamps winter makeup and adds a dose of unexpected cool to any look. In this post, I'm highlighting three ways to wear this funky combo and I'm kicking it off with Pantone's color of the year: Emerald. 

Are you ready for green?

NYFW 2013: Vivienne Tam

Bonjour mes amis! New York Fashion Week is over, but I'm still excited, inspired and totally lingering under my impression of the moment. One of my favorite shows from this season was the Vivienne Tam Fall / Winter 2013 Collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, which I attended on Sunday. I joined my friends from Incoco in the awesome craze of backstage, got to meet and interview MUA's, hair stylists and models, then enjoyed the runway and snapped tons of pics. It was an amazing experience and today, I'm bringing you the inside scoop!

"Sealed With a Kiss"

Smooches mes amis! It's a busy week for your mademoiselle, so today's post is quick and to the point: themed around Valentine's Day. I wore this lip/nails combo to the Vivienne Tam show at Fashion Week on Sunday, which I will cover in my next post, but for now I'll focus solely on my beauty attire aka my lips & nails. I wore this mani to represent my friends at Incoco who were doing the nails for the show and let me tell you -- this nailart was the talk of the town backstage! Way to go Incoco!! <3

"Modern Romanticism" at Whit NYFW 2013

Bonjour mes amis! As you may have guessed, New York Fashion Week is one of my favorite times of the year. Blizzard or not, but in the name of fashion, I will find a way to attend as many shows as I can, even if it means that I wear my galoshes. As a beauty blogger, I'm particularly interested in everything that goes on backstage -- the prep, the makeup, the hair and of course, the nails. This is my second fashion week as a beauty blogger and this season, we kicked it off at Whit

50 Shades of Pink!

Salut mes amis! Can you count all the hearts in the above collage? If so, then you know that this look is once again inspired by Valentine's Day. Pink is my favorite color (along with yellow) and today I'm celebrating all the shades of PINK -- there are far more than just 50!! I've created a fun, avant-garde look focusing on glittery sugar-heart lips, shimmery cat eyes and one fabulously PINK vintage lady hat that dates back all the way to the 1940's!! Can you just imagine the fashionista who owned it -- she must've been a Diva in her day!
