20130111-150553.jpg

Lipliner: Midnight brown eyebrow pencil
Lipstick: NYC Retro Red

Simply line your lips with the dark brown pencil and then apply the red lipstick. Massage your lips together, rubbing the color around to blend and wa-lah! Perfect winter red lips.

Until next time! XOXO Jaz’.

Trendspotting: Burgundy

Burgundy, Wine, Blood Red, Oxblood, its all the same and its all trending right NOW.

Burgundy is a huge trend for fall and will continue to be a mainstay for fashionistas all throughout the winter. This is not really the newest of new developments, I’ve been meaning to blog about it for quite some time but I kept getting sidetracked from the topic for some reason (oopsie me!). However, it is still just as relevant. I don’t see burgundy leaving the fashion scene for quite some times, especially during these colder months.

Check out celebs like Kim Kardashian & Nicole Kidman sporting the trend!

Incorporate a little burgundy via lipstick or nail polish, or a lot of it with a cool top or dress. I usually like to wear burgundy lipstick to add a little punch to any outfit. However you choose to rock this rich color, it’ll be hot hot, hot!

What do you guys think of the burgundy trend?

Raving Saturday

Hello my dears!

On Saturday I had my very 1st rave experience thanks to my best friend Philly :). We went to a rave club called Kryptonite and had tons of fun. Everyone was extremely nice and social, I even got painted! The whole evening was tons of fun and something I would definitely do again.

Philly gave me a little guidance on the look I should go for to be ‘rave appropriate’  and I’d like to share the outcome with you guys. Its a little hard to see our outfits in most of these shots ( we were a little too focused on having fun to take better pictures, sorry :/) but hopefully you see enough of our makeup and clothing to get a general idea of the look….ENJOY!

Check out the glow paint, GAHHH i love it!

My Outfit

Black Corset – Philly’s

Black Tights

Black Over-The-Knee Boots – Payless

Spiked Collar – borrowed

My Hair

Stretched Out Fro

(from old shrunken twist out that had been previously ponytailed)

My Makeup

Eyebrows – NYC Eyebrow Pencil in Midnight Brown

Concealer – NYC in 786 light (used to define brows and as a primer)

Eyeshadow – Coastal Scents 88 Palette (3 different purples and 1 gray, 1 white, 1 black)

Eyeliner- NYC Liquid Eyeliner in Black

Mascara – NYC Instant Lash in Black

Lipliner – NYC Eyebrow Pencil in Midnight Brown

Lipstick – NK Black Orchid 302

Philly’s green eyeshadow also comes from the Coastal Scents 88 palette, but her makeup is a combination of that and her own eyeshadows, lipstick, lip pencils, etc, etc…you get the picture. (I wish I could tell you everything she used, but I cannot, I apologize). But i can tell you, she got that wonderful deep berry lipshade by using a black eyeliner pencil and her burgundy lipshade on top. Creativity for the WIN!

What do you guys think of our rave looks? Tell me the kind of stuff you’d wear to a rave!

Until Next Time

XOXO Jaz’.
