Edgy, Exotic Pastels for Spring

Hello my beauties & Happy "Almost End of the Week"!! In my previous post, I promised you update you at least twice a week, so today's edition is my second installment, this time focusing on makeup. This look was put together using all Motives Cosmetics, as well as our Mavens Palettes, and was inspired by my "Minty Fresh" nail art (which you can observe here). I typically never match my makeup to my nails, but there's just something about Mint that makes me wear it all over and I don't mind coordinating. I also added a dose of edge with some graphic, Arabic-inspired liner and a well-contoured face. If you like this look and are ready to learn how it's done, keep reading for the step-by-step tutorial!!

Spring Beauty Trend: Pastel NailArt

Hello dolls!! Hope you're all happy and healthy on this lovely Tuesday. It's busier than ever on my end, so to keep things flowing smoothly, I'm going to implement a new blogging schedule for this second quarter of the year. My goal is to produce two blog posts a week, one focusing on makeup looks / tutorials and the other focusing on nails and/or fashion. This new set-up should organize my content and help you keep up and tune in on a more regulated basis. Make sure to follow me on Instagram & FB for sneak peeks, teasers and other content that doesn't make it on the blog. Today's Tuesday Trend is all about Spring Nails and how to incorporate Pastels into your nail art. Shall we get started? Let's go!

Spring Beauty: Turquoise & Naked 3

Hello dolls and Happy First Day of Spring!! In NYC, it doesn't quite feel like Spring just yet, but I'm hoping that my enthusiasm will invoke the warm weather gods who will melt away the cold and bring some sun shine our way. Wherever you guys are, I'm sure you're already celebrating in brighter colors, lighter clothes and an uplifted attitude. I'm with you in spirit, and today, I've lined up a fun, flirty Spring-time appropriate makeup look, inspired by my fave jewelry brand, Caviar Noir and its Spring Collection centerpiece: the Rosary Hand Chain in Turquoise. This piece is equal parts feminine, edgy and exotic, therefore it's the perfect muse for today's fresh look!
