FOTD - Navy, Lavender and Pink

Hiya Gals!

I hope you all are having a fabulous week so far :)

Today’s FOTD features bold Navy eyes and a soft pastel pink lip. I love pastel Barbie pink lips and I think that this colour is the perfect shade to sport during the Spring. 
Because I wanted to make the navy more spring appropriate, I incorporated a little softness by adding a shimmering lavender shadow to the inner lid.

I think with the addition of a few sparkly accessories, this would make a glamorous evening look.  What do you think?

Thanks for reading gals!

Aqua and Taupe Eyes (VIDEO)

Hello Gals!

A couple of weeks ago, I posted this look on my Instagram and promised a tutorial on how to get this aqua and taupe look. 

This look features our vibrant Prism Sassy Lids Eyeshadow Palette in "Island Parad-eyes" and my new fav cream eyeshadow by Maybelline Colour Tattoo in  "Tough as Taupe"...love it! 

So the funny thing is, a few times in this video I refer to this shadow as Touchable Taupe lol! Please excuse me.

Ok so on to the look...

Before and After- Pop of Colour

Hiya Gals!

Welcome back to my before and after series! I have been a little lacking on this type of post...I don't think that I have done a before and after since December. (Take a peek here)

My model, who is also named Keisha, is a very natural kind of gal with beautiful skin. I don't think that she ever wears makeup...other than lip gloss, so today was a real treat for both of us.

This makeup look is very easy and a fun way to add a pop of colour. I chose a stunning aqua/teal shade for a vibrant spring feel and because it looks absolutely gorgeous against her skin tone.

Before:





After:

What I Used:

Face:

Eyes:

Lips: 

A big thank you to Keisha for modeling for me and a big thank you to our photographer David Foley of Foleys Fotos.

Thanks for reading!

What do you Gals think of this look?
