My Playboy Masquerade make up look

There’s always those special events where creatively “thinking outside of the box” is encouraged, and I’ m always up for the challenge!

Every February there is a Masquerade themed party thrown at the famous Playboy Mansion, and I was lucky enough to be given a “golden ticket” 😉

As a makeup artist, I felt it would be a shame buying a mask to cover my face when I could recreate one with my awesome makeup products, and experiment with fun accents..this was my final look:

I decided on a peacock color theme which I felt would go well with my all black attire.

Products Used:

  • Makeup Forever primer
  • Ben Nye foundation. This look & event called for a heavy coverage, long lasting, flawless foundation. Worked flawlessly!
  • Cover XF- used as a concealer
  • MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre applied all around the eye area to prime for the mask look.
  • Palladio Rice Powder to set
Eyes:
  • Benefit pigment in-Pistachio
  • Urban Decay-Zephyr, Midnight Cowgirl, HiJack, Blue Bus, Baked& Creep
  • NYX-Bright Green& Irises
  • MAC Fluidline
  • DUO eyelash glue- Feather lashes & strip lashes applied (on top & bottom) as well as 2 loose peacock feathers to each side & rhinestones.

Face: 

  • MAC Blunt to contour
  • MAC Pinch Me Blush
  • MAC Shell for highlight

(Me, of course having a DANCE PARTY in my room while getting ready…one of my favorite parts of a night out!)

Cheers to fairytales, dreams & feeling like a princess,

Makeup 101: Perfect Nude Lip

I’ve spent YEARS, literally YEARS in search of the perfect Nude Lip and I am elated to share with you…I HAVE FOUND IT!!

There were a few times I thought I was close…but 2012 has already brought me the gratification of knowing Im sporting my favorite nude lip of all time.

Red lips? Fierce…Pink lips? Flirty…Nude lips? Classic! Bold eye, nude lip..learn it, love it, live it! 

Step one: MAC lip pencil in WHIRL

My old nude go to OAK is still a fun shade, however this color defines so well minus the any “wash out” feel..(yes, we’ve all seen it, and no..its not good!) Some people insist lip pencils are unnecessary, however…especially in a nude lip you need something to outline your lip line and enhance your lip shape. Even nude lips can be made pouty and flirty! 😉

Step two: MAC Lipstick in MYTH

Its a gorgeous neutral tone that still offers the right amount of color. Its beauuutiful and makes your lips look lusssshious!

Step Three: MAC LipGlass in C-THRU

Add a hint of sass with some light toned, shiny gloss! Its a flirty addition to “myth” and enhances lips to appear plumper. HOT!

Pucker up ladies, and enjoy these flawless shades,

xoxo
