Romantic Day Look

January 6, 2014

20140106-093516.jpg

I posted this look a couple days ago on my instagram. @alanadawn 

I got this look using the Naked3 Palette. I haven’t really heard very many people

raving about theNaked3 Palette after it came out. But I actually enjoy the natural pinks

especially for my brides. In the next week I will show you how to get the best looks using

the Naked3 palette. 

20140106-093536.jpg

Step 1:  Apply an eyeshadow base, I used painterly paint pot from MAC, then I applied “buzz” on my lower lid. 

Step 2: Take a small brush and put “dust” in the inner corner of your eye to brighten up your eyes. 

Step 3: Using a tapered blending brush, Take “blackheart”  and apply it to your deep crease. 

Step 4: Then take “nooner” and apply it across your crease to blend the colors together. 

Step 5: Take “dip down” from MAC and create a winged shape liner across your upper lash line. Then smoke out “blackheart” across your lower lash line. 

Step 6: Finish up the look by applying Dose of Colors “show stopper” lashes.

January Favorites!

January 3, 2014

20140103-094943.jpg

1. Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow

If you have tried this product then you would know exactly why its one of my favorites!!! This brow Pomade is completely smudge proof, water proof, fade proof! Using an angle brush you can apply as much or as little product as you want, which makes the application easy. I apply more product on the brush when I’m defining the lower part of my brow,  whats left over on my brush, thats what I use to shade in my brows. The best part about it is, Im only using ONE product. :)  DipBrow Pomade comes in 5 different colors. You can Purchase them here.

2. Tarte Cosmetics Maracuja Creaseless Concealer

I LOVE using this product as my highlight, it works just as it says, CREASELESS! this product is full coverage and sits perfectly onto the skin without making you look like you have a ton of makeup on. 

3. NYX Glitter Gel Liner

Glitter is always fun to wear! These eye liners are super affordable and you can find them at your local Target store. They come in a variety of colors.

4. Morphe Brushes

What To Wear With Your Hair: Kenra Platinum Silkening Mist

November 10, 2013

photo 1-3How beautiful does our bride Adiana look?? I did her hair, a classic side updo with lots of cascading curls.

Beauty tip: With her hair to add fullness and more curls, she provided clip on extensions. I added some right under her occipital bone, that’s the bone you feel on the back of your head. If you feel back there, there’s a bone and dip leading to your neck. Then added some smaller clip ons and pre created curls and clipped on top of the style.

The product I would love to share with you to use in most my updos is the Kenra Platinum Silkening Mist 

What’s to love about this product: 

  • -weightless
  • -adds shine
  • -eliminates frizz
  • -thermal protection
  • -smells amazing!!!

How to use it:

  • hold about 8-10 inchess from head and spray over entire style

Get the product here:

What To Wear With Your Hair: Kenra Platinum Hot Spray & Hoola by Benefit

October 1, 2013

For this session of What To Wear With Your Hair, I’d love to share with you Kenra Platinum Hot Spray and Hoola bronzer by Benefit. 

For your hair: Kenra Platinum Hot Spray is used on dry hair before and hot tools are used. It holds your style and protects from heat. What I found out is, when you spray on dry hair it is a little sticky at first but that’s ok, just comb through and continue to style

For your makeup: I love love love this bronzer by Benefit Cosmetics! It’s perfect for everyone I think. Hoola is not too orangey and when used with a blush brush it can be a great contour powder. It comes with a square looking brush but I am more comfortable using a plain blush brush.

Check out the products on here:

Kenra Platinum Hot Spray $9 for a small size to try :)

Hoola by Benefit $28 for this amazingness

What To Wear With Your Hair: Radiant Cosmetics & Hot Tools Curling Iron

September 19, 2013

Meet an amazing woman & super talented hairstylist Dianna, or on Instagram as @lady_dianna 

For her this series of What To Wear With Your Hair she shares some of her favorite items.

For your hair: 3/4″ Hot Tools Curling Iron, I love hot tools. I use their curling iron for all my styling. It gets so hot and the curls really stay 

For your makeup: Radiant Cosmetics Moscow Red Lipstick, it’s a matte finish and the color stays true the whole time. I’m seriously going to buy this lipstick, not just because it looks amazing on D, but Radiant Cosmetics is not only a makeup brand but they help raise awareness for human trafficking by raising funds through their cosmetics. How awesome is this cosmetic brand?! Love that!

 Why Dianna loves these products: “I love my Hot Tools 3/4″  iron for tight sassy springy curls!! Radiant Cosmetic is an amazing company that donates to so many anti trafficking organizations to help rescue and empowers women all over the world. I wear their makeup proudly!” 

You should check out these products & try them!

What To Wear With Your Hair: Paul Mitchell Dry Wash & Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick Fiery

September 1, 2013

Paul Mitchell Dry Wash & Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Fiery, are my two newest products I am loving and would love to share with you!

For your hair: Paul Mitchell Dry Wash is a dry shampoo, and I’ve tried several dry shampoos because I seriously just love them. Great way to add volume, texture, protect your hair color by not washing it so much and absorbs oil! If you have an oily scalp please try this instead of washing your hair on a daily. It’s a great alternative. What I love about this dry shampoo is it has a nice refreshing scent and gives medium texture, not too sticky. Make sure to section your hair and spray to roots then comb out.

For your Makeup: OMG this amazing lipgloss goes on liquidy and dries matte. It’s full coverage and lasts for up to 6 hours. I would still recommend wearing some chapstick under because it maybe a little drying. If you are looking for a bright red, FIERY is the color for you! 

The Style: I used hot tools 1″ curling iron and just grabbed random pieces, curled away from the face, then loosened up the curls with my fingers

You can try these products here:

Paul Mitchell Dry Wash ….This website gives several sites for you to purchase, because the actual Paul Mitchell website doesn’t have it on there.

Stila Fiery All Day Liquid Lipstick 

Try them and let us know if you love it too!
