Christina's Wedding

On September 19th I was lucky enough to be a part of Christina's Wedding. The girl's got ready at the Ambassador Hotel, which is absolutely beautiful. Christina is the sweetest girl and looked absolutely beautiful. Her photographer was Chris Humphrey and he was nice enough to send me some pictures of her big day.

Product I Love: NARS Orgasm Blush

I am going to start reviewing products on a regular basis. I am starting with a product that I love. As someone who is pretty much obsessed with makeup I have always heard about NARS Orgasm Blush. Everyone always swears it is the best blush. So last time I was in Sephora I decided to see what all of the hype is about.

Price: When you first see the price you will think much like I did that it is expensive. It runs $25. However, blush is a product that lasts forever. So consider it an investment.

Color: As far as the color, it is perfect. It is a peachy pink with a gold shimmer. As someone who has done makeup for a long time I can tell you that this color combination looks great on almost anyone. The only exception to this is for women with very dark skin colors. It gives you that pretty glow that might follow this products namesake. For me it works for all seasons, even when I was at my darkest this summer it still looked great.

Overall: I would definitely recommend this product if you are looking for a great blush that you can wear everyday. Remember that if it isn't dark enough at first you can always layer on more product. However, if you are not sure about this product, go to Sephora and try it on for yourself.

Hot Trend this Fall

One color that is hot this fall is Purple! Purple is a color that looks good with all eye colors. Now I am not talking about lavender, I am talking about deep purples. (Think eggplant or amethyst)
Now how do you pull it off. Well lets start with a small step, this is for those of you who are not quite sure you are ready to go all out with this. Try using a deep purple liner, this is something small that will give you a different look.

If you are a little braver, try doing a smoky eye with a deep purple. Try light at first and then you can go darker as you feel more comfortable. I would recommend using a silver or champagne color as your base color. If you try to use a light purple base color it can be a bit much.
Another way that you can use purple is on your lips. There are many pretty berry colors of lipstick or lipgloss. However try to stick to just one area of your face to use this color. So if you do lips don't do eyes and vice versa.
I have also seen alot of really pretty purple nailpolishes. I think it is a much more subtle alternative to black nailpolish.
This is definitely a trend that absolutely anyone can try. Have fun with it!
