My 70’s Inspired F.O.T.D.

While I dressed up for a costume party, I hadn’t planned on dressing up on the actual day of Halloween. But like I mentioned in my last post – you can get chipotle for $3 if you dress up. So what did I do? I came up with another halloween #look. Since I’m currently rocking a fro I decided to find a “costume” that went with my hairstyle. What better than a look from the 70’s? Big fro’s, fierce fashion and beautiful makeup, I had to do it!

For my makeup, I opted to use minimal products:

Base ||

Primer – Black Radiance true complexion HD primer in Natural Nude

Concealer – Ruby Kisses 3D face creator in RDF11. I used the darker shade to cover my dark marks, and the lighter shade as an under eye concealer.

Powder – MAC mineralize skin finish in Dark Tan

Highlighter – Highlight from Black Radiance’s blushing bronze palette in dark to deep

Eyes ||

Maybelline the Graffiti Nudes palette – First I used the shimmery brown shade on the top row, all over the lids. Then to create a spotlight illusion, I added the third eye shadow on the second row, a shimmery gold, to the middle of my lid. For no reason really, I used the Victoria’s Secret eye shadow in Precious as an inner corner highlight.

Liner – L.A. colors brow pencil in brown

Lipgloss – NYX Glam Gloss Aqua luxe in the shade The Beat Goes On

My Favorite Lippies for Fall 2016

The time that we have all been waiting for is officially here. It’s time to drink our pumpkin spice flavored drinks (that we love to pretend are so cliche) which signifies the beginning of FALL! To get prepared for this season you need to break out your boots, booties, sweatshirts, hoodies and vampy lip colors.

And since I’m always ready for the fall season I thought that I would help with some of the preparation by posting my favorite lip colors for the 2016 fall season.
