Quick Hit: Selfie in New Lipstick!

Hi Lovelies!

Expect a Thanksgiving nail look tomorrow. In the meantime, I wanted to show off my new lipstick I told y’all about a few days ago:


I couldn’t be bothered to edit out the lens glare from my glasses. ­čÖé ┬áIt amazes me how much I love this lipstick on my lips, and not as fond of the same color on my nails. But it’s definitely a color I’ll be rocking this winter.

Currently working on my manicure. Stay tuned to my Instagram for first pics! Until then, stay beautiful!

Quick Hit: New Lipstick!

Hi Lovelies!

I am typing this while sipping on my coffee, trying to figure out my makeup for the day.

And then I remembered: I have new lipstick!

I tend to not fool with lipstick so much, as I love to change lip color often. I tend to stay with gloss because that’s easier to switch out during the day.

And then, I met this:


That there is the new Cargo Essential Lip Color in Bordeaux and it is fabulous! High pigment, creamy feeling and moisturizing (I have the flakiest lips ever so this is a huge plus), and it lasts for hours.

Ok. I have to be out the door to work in about 10 minutes, so let me finish my coffee (and makeup) and get moving. Until next time, stay beautiful!

Disclaimer: the company I work for sells this item. However, I was not compensated for this review nor did I receive the product for free. It’s just that fabulous!┬á

Even Though Halloween Was A While Ago…

Did I ever show y’all the look I did for work?

I know my Instagram family got to see, but I noticed I forgot to post it here! So sorry.

When it comes to costumes, I love to be a little more extravagant, but I still need it to be as easy as possible. We had a costume contest at work, and while I had a costume to wear to my Halloween festivities, it wasn’t exactly work safe.

Yeah. It was deliciously short on me, about where it is on the model (and I’m only around 5’6 or 5’7).┬áSo I had to come up with another idea.

As my outside of work costume was going to be a Honey Bee, I figured I’d stay with the insect/animal theme and come up with something work appropriate. I went with an idea I found on Martha Stewart: a moth!


So the wings came from the printout that was on MarthaStewart.com (follow that link above if you’d like to download and print.) I used a gorgeous smoky eye pallette from Pop Beauty on my eyes:


I had a pale gold lipgloss on my lips (I think it was a Covergirl gloss?) I got the wings to stick with eyelash glue, and used the Ardell 101 lashes on my eyes:


I didn’t win the contest, but everyone loved the look and how simple it was to do. Also, it was fun to blink my eyes and watch the wings flutter!

Ok, now that’s been all caught up, I’ll have some other makeup looks for you later on this week. Until then, stay beautiful!
