The Ocean’s Calling Me…

So I like snow. I like it up till mid January. Then it’s over. I’m done. I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to summer time, the blue water on the white sand, the white clouds against the blue sky. The leaves on the trees…. yeah, I guess I’ve made my point.

So here’s a makeup look that reminds me of the blue ocean and yet is a suitable winter party look:

Turquoise on the lid and bottom lashline…

Deep purple-based blue in the crease…

Black liquid liner and mascara…

Pink lipbalm and blush and you’re set.

It’s that simple.

My eyes nearly always look brown, but these blues brought out the green in there! I’m always afraid to go bold with eyeshadow, but when I do, I love it.

Feeling Feminine & Classy

American-Hustle-2013-with-Jennifer-Lawrence

I am so in love with this look I cannot even explain. I am already a big fan of Jennifer Lawrence, and this photo just took my breath away.

(To get: Smokey eyes, heavy contour/blush, and neutral lips. The hair? Photo says it all.)

I am a big fan the good old-fashioned feminine beauty. I feel like it’s something that we’ve been losing these days. But….. it’s slowly coming back!

As a woman, I love dressing up! The red lipstick, jewelry, flowing skirts, fancy up-dos, etc. There’s no better time than fall/winter to bring out the bling!

Baby get your shine on!

I love Audrey Hepburn’s style. It was classic, simple, and beautiful. (It’s a pretty easy look to get  too!)
