Valentine’s Day is pretty close so I wanted to do a look inspired by my favorite romantic desert, Chocolate Covered Strawberries. This is more of a romantic, flirty, girly look. I used different shades of pink and a dark chocolate brown, to keep the eyes a little smokey. Keeping with the Valentine’s Day theme I used Way to Love on my lips and Orgasm on my cheeks

So I have been stuck at home for two weeks now, due to the fact that we have all been sick with the flu and also this awful weather! I prefer cold weather over hot weather but it’s getting ridiculous! We first had an ice storm then it started to snow and the windchill was below zero. Kind of sucks because the Super Bowl is here this weekend and we haven’t had a chance to go out and do anything. Anyway I though I would do a makeup look inspired by the snow and winter. I used icy whites, silver and blue on the eyes. I kept my skin matte and I used an iridescent pink on my cheeks and on my lips. I hope you like it!

As women we tend to look at celebrities for fashion and beauty trends. But no matter how famous and rich they are, they can still look like a big mess! These ladies (some) always look great when we see them on TV and we envy their stunning looks. On these nights however, either they gave their makeup artists the night off or they really pissed them off and they let them go out the door with their version of a “kick me sign”
Catherine Zeta Jones always looks regal and elegant, but this is an unfortunate case of bronzer overload and in all the wrong places! Not to mention her clumpy eyelashes and lack of concealer on her chin. Remember to keep your bronzer where the sun would naturally hit your face, and try one without too much shimmer.
Kim Kardashian has come a looong way with her makeup since we first heard of her! I’m all about matching your makeup to your clothes as long as it is not so matchy-matchy. The blue underneath her eyes just makes her look like she hadn’t slept in days! She should have kept the blue just on her waterline and not so thick under her eyes.
When I think of Nicole Kidman, I think of creamy, pale, smooth skin. But this night her makeup artist seemed to just forget to blend the powder on her nose and under her eyes. You’d think someone could have just told her to wipe it off. Some powders or concealers that have an SPF or are HD will turn white in flash photography so remember to go light, and wipe off the excess. If you know you are going to have your picture taken you may not want to use these products.
Britney Spears… well she’s just a mess most of the time anyway. But in this picture her biggest mistake is a lack of mattifier. If you have oily skin, remember to prep your skin before applying your makeup and keep blotting papers handy at all time!
Pamela Anderson… I have no words. Ladies lets just avoid all of this.
Sharon Stone looks like she may have made her hair dresser mad too. But her eye shadow reminds me of a panda bear only not so cute. If you’re going for a smoky look remember to blend your eye shadows together so your it doesn’t look so severe. The key to a smoky eye is to BLEND!
Avril Lavine doesn’t have very many good makeup moments but even she should know that no one should wear red eye shadow all around your eyes. If you have blue eyes, golds and coppers, and browns look great on you. But keep it light and more on the gold side not on the red.
We all know Jennifer Lopez for having that “J-Lo glow”. In this picture though, her skin looks muddy and the eyeshadow and lip combo completely wash her out. When choosing a bronzer make sure it doesn’t look muddy on your skin. And if you are going for the “tanned” look keep the rest of your face glowing and light.
Remember ladies to have fun with your makeup but try to avoid these makeup Dont’s!
I was in a hurry (like always) on my birthday night out, so I had to do a quick makeup look and run out the door! I didn’t get a chance to take up close pictures of the makeup so I figured I would recreate the look and post it! You can do it in just a few minutes and look great for a night out!

I thought that it would be great for my first look to be a Holiday look. I kept the eyes very simple and my face very neutral. I wanted my lips to be the main focus.
