Hello Darlings!  .... Are you guys aware that CVS is having a 75% off sale on Milani Cosmetics??  I found out through Glam Morena this weekend and hauled a** to my nearest CVS to stock up on whatever goodies I could find.  I picked up all 4 colors in the Milani Minerals blush collection, plus a couple of extras to be used for future giveaways. I ended up saving a total of $33.24 with my purchase!! Isn't that amazing? ..... Click below for SWATCHES....

LOOK OF THE DAY: All Neutral Everything! Beautiful Browns and Warm Colors for My Complexion! :)

Hello Darlings! .... Here's a look I wore this past weekend that I absolutely loved!  Who says you need color to make an impact??  My focus was on flawless skin, full/defined brows, and rich, warm shades to complement my caramel complexion.  I wore all matte eyeshadows to keep a natural look (light peach on the lids and 2 different browns in the crease), and a pretty apricot blush on the cheeks.  As for the lips, kept those neutral as well....all neutral everything! :).....Click below for more PHOTOS + Full List of PRODUCTS USED.....

LOOK OF THE DAY: Smokey Eye and Sparkly Dress! (My New Year's Eve 2012 Look)

Happy Monday's the first Monday of the year!  Today's Look of the Day comes courtesy of ....surprise, New Year's Eve makeup look! .....I wore a black sequined dress for the occasion and wanted my makeup to be equally as glamorous, without overpowering my already festive wardrobe.  A few hours before getting dressed, I settled on doing a heavily-lined eye with very bold fuchsia lips.  I even went to MAC and bought Girl About Town (lipstick) specifically for this purpose.  At the very last minute, however, I switched it up!  As you can see, I opted for smokey eyes, soft pink lips, and full, but well-defined brows 

DISCLAIMER: Much to my chagrin, the reflection from the sequins caused my skin to appear splotchy in most of the photos...I almost didn't post the pics because of this...but now that you know, we can move forward...Lol..... click below for MORE PICS + Full list of products used...
