Fringe Benefits

Happy Hump Day,

I just love anything with fringe (as you can see), therefore, this dress had to be mine.  The fit is very flattering to the curves and the length is appropriate.  On this day it was pretty warm, but on a cold day, I would have threw on a leather jacket with it. Well, I hope you guys enjoy the look.  Have a great day!

ChicBeauty: Soft Smokey Eye

Happy Tuesday Loves,

I hope your day has started off well.  Today I wanted to feature this soft smokey eye look.  I am all about a soft and natural makeup look.  A couple of my friends always say to me that they love a smokey eye but it is too dramatic.  This can be true, however, it all depends on what you are doing and where you are going BUT you can create a smokey eye for everyday.  Below are details on how I created this simple look:

Keeping the overall face simple is necessary.  You do not want to add heavy blush.  Just a light couple of strokes of blush and a nice highlight will be enough.  HOWEVER, if you would like to go bold, then by all means you can.
With a smokey eye look, you want to tone down the lips.  Now you ABSOLUTELY can where a dramatic lip, but if you want to keep it simple and clean, a soft lip choice is necessary since the eyes are a little more dramatic.
I personally don't always where lashes but I think they compliment any eye look, especially a smokey eye.  However, you DO NOT have to apply lashes. Totally optional!

Details:

FACE:

Primer - Benefits Porefessional 
Foundation - MUF (unsure of the shade)

Chic-Beauty: Valentine's Makeup look

Happy Hump day,

Valentine's day is right around the corner and if you are heading out with your boo/bae, spouse, or side dude....(LOL LOL just kidding on the later), then you must give face.  Even though my husband and I  typically are not the ones to go out on Valentine's anymore, this would be a makeup look I would go for.  I am a little on the traditional side because reds and pinks would be the colors I would gravitate towards.

For the eyes, I decided to go with a soft pink lid.  Initially, I was going to add glitter, but I decided to keep it soft. 


For the lips, I decided to go with an ombre look using a red liquid lipstick and a pink metallic liquid lipstick in the middle.  Honestly, these photos don't do the lips any justice because they were much more vibrant than it appears.


Details:

FACE: MUFE Ultra HD Foundation (forgot shade)
Clinique Beyond Perfecting +Concealer  Foundation -for highlighting (#9 Neutral)
LA Girl Pro Concealer (color correcting in the green shade for redness)
Sacha Butter Cup setting powder
Black Radiance Pressed Powder- for bronzing (Bronzed Glow)

EYES: Morphe 35O Palette and BH Essential Eyes Palette
Lashes - Salon Perfect (Glamorous)
Brow - Colourpop Brow Pencil (Dark)
NYC Liquid Eyeliner (upper lash line)
Milani Suprem Kohl Kajal Eyeliner (lower lash line)

LIPS:  Milani Amore Matte Lipstick "Romance" & Amore Metallic in "Prismattic Touch"

Hope you like the look!  Have a blessed day.

It's Geometric

Happy Tuesday,

Well I don't want to brag just yet, but I have been on a roll with these weekly post.  I figured that I will not speak on doing better, I just need to do! Any who, lets jump right into this look. When I first saw this blouse on a YouTuber, I instantly knew that I wanted it.  Look at the colors and the print!! They are so fun and flirty, yet the make of the top is still conservative.  I paired it with this faux leather skirt to give it a more sexy, yet sophisticated look. The blouse is made of soft, thin material so it is appropriate for the Spring and Summer as well.  It can be paired with a pair of light wash skinny jeans or shorts.  You can also wear it as a dress, but I personally think it is too short for that, BUT to each is own!  I think this look would be appropriate for church as well as to the office.  What do you guys think? Would you wear this to the office and/or to church?

Vintage Sequins

Happy Tuesday,

Hope the start of your week has been good so far.  I am excited about today's post because I am featuring this FABULOUS sequin sweater.  I purchased this around the end of Summer on a trip to New Orleans at a vintage thrift store.  I am all about some sparkle honey and when I saw this baby, it was love at first sight.  According to the tag, it is an authentic 1970's disco sweater, which made me want it even more.  The colors are so fun and vibrate.  I paired it with these faux leather pants but it would look very nice with a leather skirt or a pair of jeans.  She is an absolute beauty, wouldn't you agree??? Hope you guys enjoy this look and have a blessed week!
