putting on a face..

i have been getting some questions as to what and if i wear make up.. the answer is that i do.. below are the essentials i use for everyday nyc life..

i actually use to different colors; medium beige and medium tan - i like to mix the colors depending on my tan; in the winter i use more beige and in the summer i use more tan. by far the best brush for this application is the full coverage kabuki brush.

i like this blush because it's very warm; since my skin color is very tanned in the summer and very pale in the winter this blush give  me a good balance. i can apply more or less depending on the look and time of the year. i actually like to use this brush even thou it's not from the same brand.

last but not least i love me some mascara!!! i believe long lashes can make your face brand new. this clinique mascara is very strong and black and i love the look. depending on the day i'll make a small outline at the bottom of my eyes.. that's usually my weekend look.. i like blue because i feel like it brings out my dark browns more..

for an everyday look i apply clear glass or chapstick. {i love my blistex}. i am not a huge fan of wearing eye shadow {but i do wear it sometimes on occasion} or heavy makeup; less is always more and i like to look like myself when i take the makeup off - but i love looking like a better me with the makeup on.

my everyday look

my i think i am fancy look

which one do you guys like more??

p.s. today is my 1st day back to school... which me luck!!

doin' it for the fame; cause we gotta taste for champagne and endless fortune

we all know that lady gaga is one of my favorite artists. this week she released her 1st signature scent, FAME at sephora

and i have to say it smells delish!! i also really love what FAME stands for;first of its kind in fluid technology, "it is black like the soul of Fame but invisible once airborne;loving yourself has never been more empowering" - i love it

i have been a little monster for quite sometime just look at the above picture.. me about 3 years ago as gaga on halloween! 

what do you guys think of her scent fame?

weekend bbq

i spent the weekend at one of my best friend's and cousin's home... it was nice to relax with good friends and family.. i probably drank a little too much but it was worth it..
