If you’re the kind of girl that likes a lot of drama on the eyes, here’s a dark and smokey look for you.

Jackie’s channel

If you like to keep the eyes simple but prefer bold lips, we think that this look is super versatile.  False lashes will open up the eyes and you can choose your favorite bold lip color as the focus.

Bonus tips:

Make sure you take your lip color of choice with you to reapply throughout the night for pictures.

If you get shiny, pack blotting papers. Feeling cheap? Use a piece of clean toilet seat cover and press it against y0ur oily spots to absorb excess.  Tissue also works.

3 Gorgeous Makeup Products You Can Use To Rock Marsala, Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year



Pantone, the world’s leading authority on color, recently announced it’s 2015 color of the year, marsala. The shade, described as a earthy wine red, is everywhere in the beauty world already and looks drop-dead-gorgeous on brown girls of all shades!

While the official Sephora +Pantone collection hasn’t debuted quite yet, we were crazy over the possibilities. If you’re like us and can’t wait to get your hands on this beautiful wine/berry shade in time to wear for the holidays, we’ve found some for you to rock just in time for all your festivities.


OPI  Nail Polish in Scores A Goal -$9.50- Ulta

The perfect shade for the festive manicure lover, I can see this paired well with a gold glitter top coat.


Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Vampira -$21- Sephora

This is a beautiful matte burgundy shade and the formula of this line of lippies is designed to last you up to 10 hours of wear time. It goes on smoothly, but it can be a bit dry (as matte lipsticks tend to be,) so be sure to moisturize your lips really well before applying. It also smells like dessert, so that is an added bonus.


If you’re on a bit of a budget, try Cherry Bomb by Wet n’ Wild. The formula is super creamy but you get the same amount of color pay off. Plus, you can’t go wrong with a $2 price tag



NARS Blush in Seduction -$30- Sephora

This blush is worth every penny, I promise. NARS blushes are so insanely pigmented you only need to tap your brush once to pick up any color. It goes on sheer so that you can build up the intensity that you’re looking for. No sweeping, swirling or extra swishing here, ladies and gents.  You get your money’s worth with this one.
