Disney Inspiration Make-Up

So this weekend as you know I went to my friends Birthday Party and got dolled up. 
Maria, sent out an email over the weekend saying that her Make-Up Monday prompt would be for Disney Princess Inspired Make-Up, which I thought would be so much fun. 
This look was inspired by Anastasia – 
Smokey Eye with Pink lip (slight ombre lip and emphasis on darkening the eyebrow). 

Products used to make this look:
Eyebrows: E.L.F. brown eyeshadow, Midnight Brown Covergirl pencil.
Eyes: E.LF. Dark Brown for the Crease, Nude for the lid.
Lips: Maybelline Color Whisper and E.L.F. Pink Lipstick.

This is probably one of my favorite go-to looks… and I was really glad that I got to share in more detail my look for the evening.

Makeup Monday

Cotton Candy In Times Square

 I went to a make-up party that was hosted by a Make-Up Artist friend of mines and it featured Motives for LaLa products. 
I had never seen or knew anything about the line, so I was excited to dip my fingers in some of the products and learn more about the custom color foundations. 
My intention for going to the make up party was to see the trends and 
I went looking for a few new colors for the Spring. 
I ordered some goodies that I can’t wait to share with you. 
For now let me share with you this new lip color that I chose as part of my Spring Palette: 
This is Cotton Candy lip liner with Times Square lip stick.
Let’s just say it was LOVE at first sight!
The pigment of the lip liner and the lipstick is what I was so impressed with. 
Being a woman of color, getting pigments to just POP like they should can be tasking. 
Not with this though. 
So for Spring, I am loving Motives for LaLa.
Have you picked things for Spring?
What colors are you thinking of trying for this upcoming season?

Once I had it on, you couldn’t tell me nothing! 
I went walking around the neighborhood feeling good about my choice. 
I can not wait until the rest of my products come in so that I can share with you some more goodies!
*I was not compensated for talking about the product or event – just thought it was worth a mention and my money*

In preparing my face for events and day to day – I always ask myself the most important make-up question : To Lash or Not to Lash? That is always the question. 

I can say that it wasn’t until I moved to Chicago that I saw lashes worn even with every day make up. 
It took some practice to get a rhythm in regards to applying lashes. 
I use to be in LOVE with Mascara and I still have my faves but none do the work of turning my tiny curly lashes into what I get from false lashes. 
It also depends on the event – if I am going to be in the dark most the night, then no lashes for me. Too much work and I will probably rub my eye and the lash off sooner then someone noticing them. 
But for the event I went to yesterday, Lashes were perfect!
If I had the stamina – I would DEFINITELY wear lashes daily!
What fun – its like a Party on your eye!
Do you lash?
