Hey, hey lovelies!!!! It’s me again!! Omg, I miss u all so much. I feel like we haven’t spoken in months. I have been insanely busy with makeup. I just hosted my very first make up event called Model For a Day. We worked with models that were aspiring and established to get them professional model coaching, and help them build their portfolios. They had photo shoots with two different photographers, runway coaching, and of course make up by yours truly. Lol it was a BLAST!!!! I’m already planning a second one, and if the requests keep coming in, I’ll be taking MFAD on the road. Uber exciting!!! Be sure to follow me on Insta for updates and highlights from my events.

Summer sun had us all glowing and strobing in an attempt to divert attention away from the dramatic harshness of the quickly and overly popular contouring technique. So we shimmered in liquids, powders, dewey finishing sprays, and high shine to achieve the latest trend. With the summer officially over, it’s time to adjust our makeup routine. Here are 5 must-try trends for this season:
Vampy Red Lips: When fall arrives, we usually gravitate towards darker shades of lipstick. A favorite shade of mine is Ruby Woo by MAC, which is a vibrant and universal red. I like to vamp it up by lining it (ombre style) with Nightmoth, another liner by MAC, this combination is pictured below. The model is wearing makeup by me.
Achieve this look:
Rosey cheeks: Think cheeks gently kissed by a brisk winter breeze. Soft, natural with a rosey hue. This look is phasing out the look of harsh contouring and replacing it with a soft, sexier feminine flush of color.
Feathery brows: Ok, I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again lol. The days of brow “fleekness” are a thing of the past. This fall, light, soft, feathery brows are in. Sticking closely to the brows natural shape and not creating a harsh shape, or squared inner brow is winning these days.
4. Bold lid liner: This look has always said “high-glam” to me. However, with Nicki M. rockin it daily, it’s becoming easier to swallow as a day time look. I love the idea of a nice dramatic liner for everyday, so that is my 4th must try fall trend. And if wings are an issue, you absolutely must try the Milani Eye tech liner pen. It is LIIIFE!!!!! Omg! I got mine from
Wal-Mart for 6.99, and I am IN LOVE with it!!!
Warm glow: For those of us who cannot leave the house without some type of shimmer, fall is favoring warm highlighters. These are gold, rose gold, or shimmery peachy colors that highlight but keep the complexion warm. MAC just realeased a new color line of shimmery highlighters that are to die for. Milani also has dupes for the budget shopper.
