I found myself with lots of time as I was house-bound because of a hurricane called Sandy. I am not really a Halloween person but decided to paint up the nails in honour of the day!
Decided to have a little bit of fun with my dotting tool!
Here’s what I used:
Do you love??? I definitely had fun doing this!!
One of the hardest things to do is to find the perfect red. A lot of women of colour avoid the most coveted lip colour of all time. Red is the colour of the season and sultry glamour is back! Various textures and finishes, it doesn’t matter. Red is it!!! Truth be told, I had to make a conscious decision to start buying reds. It is really a matter of trial and error to find reds that work with your skintone and personality and the engineer in me loves this!!!
So here are some the reds that I have collected recently. And for the record, I don’t know where I have been but M.A.C.’s Ruby Woo bessssssss!!!!! I don’t know what they sprinkle on that lipstick, and it’s a matte too!! It is a gorgeous, stunning true red and the finish/texture of the lipstick also makes it unique! No one looks bad in this one. I think this is as close to a sure bet as you can get! If you would like more detailed swatches/info on a particular colour, let me know. I will be doing a review on the NARS items. Check out my review on the NYX Lip Cremes here. I’m NW45 with red undertones but my arm is a little lighter.
I’ve wanted to do an Indian-inspired look for a long time now. Growing up in Trinidad & Tobago, I was accustomed celebrating customs and religious beliefs of the different ethnic groups. Trinis would not bat an eyelid at attending Eid events or going over by your neighbor to parang dey house for Christmas. We have accepted and celebrated each others cultures and food, becoming a very multi-ethnic society.
I bought the November 2010 Vogue India issue with Priyanka Chopra on the cover and fell in love with this look!
As a matter of fact, I fell in love with the entire Sari issue. Such vivid colours and opulence!!! Something that I don’t usually see reading US magazines. I occasionally will buy an international magazine for a different kind of inspiration. In this issue, for the traditional Hindu ceremony, the bride wore a stunning ruby red and gold sari paired with smokey red and black eye makeup with deep red lips!! This look will also be great for a Divali celebration, lighting deyas and eating your favourite mithai.
Here’s my version.
