I recently bought this dress and love the bold stripes! I love the details like the zipper front, the unique waist and flat pleats.


smokey eyes & neutral lips

I decided to do a makeup post and give a few tips on smokey eyes and contouring. All the products I used can be found at http://rigandco.com/.
A smokey eye is really very simple to do but looks dramatic and sexy.

1. Apply dark shadow to the eyelid. I used Ink Mineral Shadow (http://www.rigandco.com/products/Mineral-Shadow.html)

2. Use a light shade for highlighting the brow bone and inside corners of the eye and blend with blending brush. I used Canary Diamond Mineral Shadow (http://www.rigandco.com/products/Mineral-Shadow.html)

3. Apply black eye liner to the upper and lower lash lines. I used Anisette LiquiLiner on the upper (http://www.rigandco.com/products/LiquiLiner.html) and Coal Powderliner Pencil (http://www.rigandco.com/products/Powderliner-Pencils.html) on the lower. I like a liquid liner to do wing eyeliner and the powder liner works great to blend on the lower lash.

4. Apply two coats of mascara. I love my SuperWear Mascara (http://www.rigandco.com/products/SuperWear-Mascara.html), it is both very waterproof and has an easy to apply thin brush especially for shorter lashes.

5. I am in love with the Contour Powder Duo in First Crush 
(http://www.rigandco.com/products/Contour-Powder-Duo.html). I use the brown for contouring under the cheekbones and the pink for my blush. The Angled Blush Brush (http://www.rigandco.com/products/Angled-Blush-Brush.html) works great to apply these.

6. For the lips I did the Rose Color Stick (http://www.rigandco.com/products/Color-Stick-for-Lips-.html), I love the color sticks because they are very easy to apply and feel more like a chapstick than a lipstick. When doing a dark eye, a lighter or nude lip makes your eyes look more dramatic.


love dots!

I love this lipstick and wear it literally every day! It is the rose color stick from Rig & Co. (http://www.rigandco.com/products/Color-Stick-for-Lips-.html). I love these color sticks because they are easy to apply and have great color!

I love this simple outfit and the skirt makes me feel so feminine & sexy. I wore it over the weekend to shop at Ikea, it was comfortable but made me feel great!


cheetahs beware!

Shoes - Jessica Simpson (Ross)

I am in love with these heels I recently purchased! I am always attracted to Jessica Simpson's shoes and they are very affordable.


make it girly

I do love a full skirt, as it works well with my curves and compliments my style. It can also create curves if you don't have any.

I have a lot of clients who think a full skirt only makes them look bigger. 
The key to wearing them...Wear it high on your waist and tuck your top in, emphasizing your waistline. Adding a belt will help do so as well. Then it's simply a matter of...is this your style and do you feel pretty in it.

I hope you feel pretty in whatever you decide to wear today. You deserve it.

I am off to Vegas for work (and a little play) so Gail will be posting next week. 
Enjoy your weekend!

a little cheetah here. a little cheetah there.

Yes, I am wearing Crocs. I can't believe it either but somehow cheetah prints can always sway me. The fact that they are stupidly comfortable is an added bonus. I know that those of you who have been wearing Crocs for a long time are saying "I told you so". Well I think Crocs have come a long way in their design and style and I have jumped on the bandwagon. 
So go ahead...say I told you so and let's move on with our lives.
Have a most fabulous weekend!
