Day to Night look with Vegas.com

There is nothing I love more than a makeup look that can easily transition from day to night with little effort.  Contrary to what you may think, you can change the entirety of a look by changing up the lip, or adding a pop of color.  Vegas.com is looking for come creative ideas on how to transition makeup from day to night in the Sin City. Using the hotels and package deals page, I got started right away on what I would use to inspire my looks. 


For my looks, I chose the Flamingo hotel.  I couldn't get over how eye catching the colors were, and I just knew it had the perfect palette for what I was going for.  For both day and night, I used the same foundation, bronzer, blush, and brows to make it simpler.  The whole point of a transition is to be speedy and not have to do much!

Look One: Day
For during the day, I always like to go with a light neutral eye.  I didn't want to make this look too eye catching, so I could focus on the lip color.  I used a matte brown for the crease, and the same shade in a more shimmery texture for the lid.  I then used some gel eyeliner to make a thin line on my upper lash line because I knew I could build it up later.  For my lips, I wanted to play into the fun colors of the Flamingo.  I wanted to save the bright lips for later, so I opted for a lip gloss instead of a super pigmented lipstick.





Look Two: Night
This look involved me exaggerating everything I had done for during the day.  I didn't change anything for the eyeshadow, but I did turn my thin liner into a graphic wing!  To play off the lights on the hotel, I lined the top of my wing with a teal gel liner.  I've never done this before, and I absolutely loved the turnout!  The lips are where the heart of this look comes from, though.  The Flamingo captures your attention with its hot pink exterior, so it just seemed right for me to top off this look with a crazy hot pink lipstick.

Top 5 Favorite Statement Necklaces

Welcome back to the blog!  

So sorry for the long absence.  School has been kicking my butt, again!  Hopefully, there will be none of that for a while since exams are done for now.  

Today, I wanted to show you what my all time favorite statement necklaces are.  I didn't choose there for any particular season, but I do find myself gravitating to all of these throughout the year. Statement pieces are extremely important in a wardrobe.  I think they can oomph up any outfit if you don't know what accessories to wear.  One way I love to wear these is with a plain tee or sweater. The piece you choose instantly becomes the highlight of your outfit with little to no effort or thinking.  It's a great choice for those times you wake up and have 10 minutes to get everything together.

A jewelry box holds the things that most correctly represent a person and always capture the eye.  For me, necklaces are a great way to show my mood  and personality.  That's why Invaluable.com has asked me to share with you what pieces of jewelry are in my jewelry box!  Invaluable is an online marketplace that carries everything from collectibles to vintage jewelry.  You can auction for items any day or buy one immediately.

Lusting For... BeYindi

Welcome back to the blog!

Today I wanted share with all of you one of the most beautiful jewelry companies I have ever come across. BeYindi is a jewelry brand focused of sterling silver jewelry with semi-precious gemstones, pearls, corals and crystals.  Many items in the collection are handmade, originated from Thailand and made by local masters. This company tries to follow the latest trends in jewelry and keep their collection up-to-date meanwhile still there are a lot of classical designs and ethnical motives.

Yindi” means happy in Thai language. Why Thai? Because Thailand is known as a land of smiles. People are happy in Thailand no matter what. The company's founder thinks this is what we are missing in our daily life – simple little things that make you forget about stress and endless rush, tiny details that make our life beautiful. Happiness is right here, many people just don’t see it.

To showcase some of my favorite items, I created a wishlist because I couldn't choose just one to share with all of you!

Weekly Style : Sweater Weather

Welcome back to my blog!

This week the weather finally took a turn for the best.  The temperature finally went under 60 degrees, and that means I can break out my favorite sweaters and high socks.  This time a year is where my inspiration flows.  Sometimes I think that Fall and Winter are the only times my outfit making skills are comprehensive.   I chose some pieces that I could really transition my closet with and were versatile with the cold weather in the morning and the warm weather as the day went on.

Homecoming 2016 was so much fun!  I got to wear a beautiful red lace and scuba mini dress from ASOS and top off my makeup look with some gorgeous mink lashes from Tricky Hair.  Tricky Hair sells clip in hair extensions and 3D Mink Eye Lashes. Visit them at Tricky Hair Extensions!  I love to add something special to my makeup looks for special occasions.  I also used my favorite Kat Von D Innerstellar Palette to makeup a nice smokey eye.  I finished off my look with NYX's Soft Matte Lip Creme in Amsterdam.

Autumn Date Night Makeup Idea

Welcome back to the blog!

Autumn is such a great time to go on some adventurous dates.  It has the perfect weather: You don't sweat to death, and it's not too cold that you're shivering!  I love to go on casual dates such as taking a walk to get some pizza or an alternative beach trip to watch the sunrise/sunset.  But maybe you want to spice up the night by renting a fun car to take.  Turoa peer-to-peer car rental company,  has a selection of both classic cars and rare cars, like Tesla's, that can make for an exciting experience.  I'd love to take a drive around town in a crazy colored car and see everyone's heads turn!  I decided to create a look that you could wear to one of these dates while driving around in your rented car from Turo.





Products used:

Face
Brows
Lips
