Purple Lips

November 28, 2014


Been going through this phase of purple lipsticks. Maybe I feel like I need to match my hair color, haha.

I wanted to share one of my favorite color combinations right now.


Step 1: Apply Dark Secrets from Dose of Colors . directly in the middle of your lips.

Step 2: Next, line your lips with plum Lipliner and slightly fill the corner of your lips in.

Step 3: Press your lips together blending the colors together.




Soft Touch Permanent Makeup Review

November 25, 2014

unnamedWhat is Soft Touch Permanent Makeup? It’s probably the best permanent eyebrow service ever offered!! lol Just saying since I got it done and am so in love with the result so I want to share with you all my experience.

I recently discovered an artist, Sharon Vu Watari, that offers this service. Been stalking her Instagram @spabymode and every new picture she posted reassured my decision to have her service.

So what exactly is Soft Touch Permanent Makeup?

It’s a makeup tattoo service that will last up to 3-5 years depending on one’s skin type, lifestyle and body chemistry. A maintenance is recommended every year or so to maintain color and shape. The technique Sharon uses is proprietary, but she can say it is heavily based on shading techniques that can be best described as ombre. These techniques are derived from her art background where she was able to excel in pencil drawings. Sharon is truly an artist in her craft!

The Process: I did a consultation first and highly recommend that before you book your appointment. You get to meet your artist and get introduced to the whole process. In the consultation Sharon doesn’t do your eyebrows then, she just checks out what you have and recommends what she thinks. Then on the day of, she’ll take pictures of how you normally do your eyebrows if you did do them yourself, and pictures of your eyebrows without makeup.

The part where she starts sketching in your new eyebrows, she is constantly  making sure your posture is upright and even. When she’s done sketching, she gives you some time to check if you like what she did. If there are any concerns or changes just let her know! I was taking a million selfies to make sure I loved my new brows. After you’re happy with her work, she mixes color thats best for you.  Then starts her ombre shading technique on your eyebrows. I went straight through without any breaks. The tattooing was very tolerable and was very worth the minor discomfort. The whole service from sketching the eyebrows temporarily to tattooing them on was a little less than 2 hours for me.

At first the eyebrows will appear thick and dark, within a day or two it’ll lighten up and thin out to look more natural.

So happy with the result!!

Makeup Monday- Karissa’s Top 5

November 24, 2014

Hi Everyone!
My name is Karissa and I am the newest member of the Lady Art Team!

Today I wanted to share with you my Top 5 Makeup “Must Haves.”

1.Cover FX BB Gel- This BB Gel is amazing! I’ve always had problem skin so this BB gel actually helps reduce the appearance of blemishes, shrinks pore size and mattifies the skin with a very sheer coverage. I use this under my favorite foundation.

2. Tarte 12 Hour Amazonian Clay Foundation- If you haven’t tried any of Tarte’s Amazonian Clay products you are truly missing out. My favorite from the collection is the foundation. This full coverage foundation has the benefits of the clay as well as spf 15 and applies flawlessly.

3.Too Faced Melted Lipsticks-  I can’t get enough of these lipsticks! They go on somewhat like a gloss and then dry matte. They come in the most beautiful colors. Melted Fig and Melted Fuchsia are my favorite but the whole collection is beautiful.

4. Anastasia Of Beverly Hills Dipbrow- The most unruly eyebrows don’t stand a chance against this stuff! The formula is amazing. It glides on and  they have colors to match any skin tone/ hair color.

5.Duo Lash Adhesive- I wear false eyelashes very often. My go to glue is Duo.  When you’re out and about the last thing you want to worry about is your lashes falling off! Trust Duo to keep your lashes in place!

I would love to see your Makeup Monday photos! Hashtag #LAMakeupMonday to be featured!
