Red Lipstick & Champagne Dreams: October 2012

Silent Treatment

Hello lovelies, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!! Well I'm excited for halloween today. This is my daughter's second time trick or treating and I think she will have a lot more fun this time around! Ok now today I am bringing you another Wet N' Wild look (there's a sale on the palettes). I'm seriously loving these little palettes!  Like I said on my previous post they are super pigmented and you don't need to do much to get the color to show. I was a little skeptical of the highlight color at first, but once I actually applied it the color went on great and it was the perfect highlighting color, I will definitely be using it often.

As the title says the name of this palette is "Silent Treatment" and I would assume they gave it this name because of the subtle colors. 

Today I attempted to do ombre lips, it's not super noticeable but I really like them. I need to use colors that are very opposite to each other in terms of darkness. Maybe I'll get it right next time. 

My lips and cheeks were created using MAC products:

- MAC Magenta Lip Liner
- MAC Girl About Town Lipstick
- MAC Lady Gaga Viva Glam Lipglass


- Loreal True Color Match
- MAC Studio Finish Concealer 
- MAC Melba Blush

It's a Wet N' Wild Kind of Day

 In today's post I bring you a look created using Wet N' Wild's palette Blue Had Me At Hello. It has some beautiful colors, mostly blues, black and grey. I love this palette. The colors are so pigmented and VIBRANT! Wet N' Wild has definetely stepped up their game when it comes to the quality of their products. Now we can create beautiful looks for a littler over $5. There are other pallets as well and they are  just as gorgeous!

The only colors I used in this look that were not from the pallet were MAC Rice Paper and a bronzer to help me blend my crease. On the lips I am wearing Wet N' Wild matte lipstick in 902C. The blush I'm wearing is MAC Breezy.

So what do you think of this look? I actually really like. I've been wearing such boring makeup lately, that this has sparked me to do more of them this week :)

Subtly Made Up

Hello ladies, this post is one again o a super neutral look. I've moved recently and basically all of my makeup is in storage and all I have are a few things, so I don't have many colors to work with. Also getting ready or work in the morning and going to the gym makes doing more elaborate looks harder so I've stayed away from them for a while. But fear not because is about to change.

In the mean time here is cute simple look that is very versatile and can be worn basically anywhere, during the day or night!

What I really like about this look is that it can be achieved fast and you can still look great! Having to get my daughter and myself ready in the morning can be a hassle sometimes so I need something pretty easy, and this is basically my go-to makeup look when I don't have much time.

What is your go-to makeup look?
