Perfect Red Lips All Day!! OCC Stalker Lip Tar

This!!!! OCC Stalker Lip Tar!!

If you are looking for the perfect, pin-up style, true red lip that stays in place and lasts all day - look no further! Stalker is everything! I recently wore this color to a fashion show/model search/dance audition I was working. I was there from 10am to 5:30pm, never had a chance to touch up and when I left my lips were still perfectly red, same as when I applied it that morning (around 8am). I was so impressed! If you follow my blog then you know I am a huge fan of OCC lip tars, but I had never worn them all day like this before. Now, I adore them even more!!!! Red is such a hard color to wear on your lips without it running or fading, so for this to last effortlessly all day I can't say enough about it!

I wore Stalker with a neutral eye and winged liner. I wanted the red lips to be the center of attention.

Teal Pretty!

Hi luvs! Here is another look I want to share with you. A while ago I bought a few of the L'oreal Infallible eye shadows and one of them was this beautiful teal color called Endless Sea. First off, if you are looking for some great drugstore eyeshadows and don't mind paying closer to $10 this line of eye shadows are a great buy! The color choices are pretty good, just wish they came in more colors. They apply velvety smooth and really do last all day. I love Endless Sea! It's a beautiful color that brightens up your look. Here is the breakdown for my look...

Endless Sea Infallible Eyeshadow (lid), MAC Soft Brown (crease),
Bone (browbone),
Light green, Emerald and Dark Green colors from BH Cosmetics Party Girl Palette (lower lash line)
ELF Black Cream Liner
L'oreal Voluminous Mascara

MAC Studio Fix Fluid
MAC Espresso eyeshadow (contour)
1st blush from the Coastal Scents 10 blush palette
MAC Soft and Gentle Mineralized Skinfinish (highlight)

Revlon Soft Nude lipstick with MAC Burgundy lipliner (lightly applied and blended)

I also want to add that I have a new favorite contour brush!! It's the Sonia Kashuk Flat top brush. It contours like a dream! It easily fits right under the cheek bone and on the sides of the nose to create the perfect contoured face! You must give it a try!! :)

Green with Envy!

Hey there! I have a few looks and posts I want to share with you all! I haven't been feeling well this past week and I have been looking and feeling pretty bummy, so I didn't get to do as many looks as I wanted to, but I'm hoping to feel better soon - Fingers crossed and have more to share!

Here is a Green eyeshadow look that I love! I love how vibrant, yet still wearable it is. I adore creative eye looks that are bright and colorful. I give major props to those who rock those looks, but me personally, I couldn't, guess I'm not daring enough. Instead I like to use one bold color and make it, wearable for everyday. I do this by applying the bright color just to the lid and using neutrals to blend through the crease.

The green I used for this look is a Ben Nye pigment called Chartreuse. If you haven't tried any Ben Nye shadows, you must! They are fab! I promise you wont be disappointed! In fact, you may become a Ben Nye addict immediately! lol I bought a bunch of sample size pigments from www.makeupgeek.com. She sells her own line of cosmetics as well as Ben Nye and MAC sample pigments and Sugarpill Cosmetics shadows and pigments. Go check it out! Plus she has a great blog and tutorials!!
