Single or taken, whether you’re into this Hallmark Holiday or not odds are you will be getting out and celebrating you and your loved ones. I think my favorite Valentine’s Days have been the one’s getting all dolled up with my gals and treating ourselves to a fancy dinner and then finishing the night with some girly fruity drinks and giggles.

Cape Coat

I was lucky enough to visit my best friend in New York City this year for my 25th birthday.  I couldn’t believe just how addicting and inspiring it truly is.

Holiday Party Makeup

Next week is Christmas it’s practically here!  The lights are up, the presents are wrapped and the holiday parties are booked.  I love how this season is a little bit more about the glitz and the colors.  For this post I have created a make up look with a bit of sparkle that can be worn for any holiday party, from your White Elephant, to your Company’s holiday party!  Lets get started

Still keeping with with my favorites I keep a very basic subtle smokey eye.  I used Kitten by Stila as the base and used Lorac’s Cocoa from my Royal Pallet in the corners and crease.  I created an exaggerated wing with my Lorac Front of the Line eyeliner and added a bit of sparkle with one of my glitter liners.  For the cheeks I use Hula by Benefit to create a subtle contour and top off the cheek bone with a little bit of Watts Up.

In these photos I’m wearing just a basic nude lip ( Japanese Maple by Mac) but you can use any of your favorite winter lip colors.  Just top off the look with a pair of dramatic false eyelashes and a bright red lip for a festive holiday look as I did below!
