Winging It ; )

30 Sep

Fall is in full swing and so are all the delightful fall beauty trends!!! From smokey eyes to red lips to my fave WING TIPS!!!!  The cat eye is definitely a staple that is here to stay this fall.  From a demure flick to a full out wing, you can’t go wrong with this sexy, playful addition to your beauty routine. Try MAC fluidline ($15)  in black track for a seamless application and a smudge-free finish. And if you’re feeling extra fancy try adding  a pop of color ; )


Check below for an how-to on the classic cat eye….happy winging ; )

Checking out one of my favorite blogs www.urbanmogullife.com, I stumbled across this pic:

The cover of Rih-Rih’s new album. Though it is fabulous, I couldn’t help but notice it was strikingly similar to the world renowned photographer,  Steven Meisel’s Vogue cover. Make-up done of course by none other than the infamous Pat Grath:


Shall I proceed……YES INDEED!

So awhile ago, I mentioned to my classmates that I was going to do some video girl makeup and no one knew what I was talking about. WHAT?? I was dumbfounded. I thought EVERYBODY knew what video girl makeup was. During my high school years every one would rush home to catch 106 and park (note: with A.J. and Free NOT Terrance and Roxy) and TRL. It was deemed the highest compliment if someone told you you looked like a video girl. I know what you all are thinking, but hey we were in high school, give us a break.  Anyways, our mission in life was to achieve that look. On Saturdays we would watch videos for hours and then spend hours in the mirror trying to emulate the makeup and hair (and perfecting our dance moves).   Now days the fascination with video girls has worn off but I still appreciate the beautifully artistic makeup in music videos. Here’s an example of then and now. Enjoy : )

So as you may be able to tell, The Makeup Aficionado LOVES LOVES LOVES fall makeup!!!!!!!  Rihanna’s video Te Amo embodies everything that is fall fashion, from the beautiful rich lips, sultry smokey eyes, strong brows, to decadence in general.  It’s victorian feel intrigued me and after watching it for the 3rd time in a row, I knew I had to share it with my readers. Enjoy the wonderfulness that is Te Amo!

Kiss my (red) lips

As you all know fall is fastly approaching and you know what that means….FALL BEAUTY TRENDS!!!!! The red lip is IN and it is smokin’ HOT!!!! From different shades to different textures (i.e glossy, matte, etc.)the red lip is all the rage down the runways and featured in all the major magazines. As you all get to know me, you will find that I’m a major Rih-Rih fan  and that’s basically all she wears:

which is definitely ok by me!!!!! And ladies just as a tip….to keep your red lipstick, well, on your lips, fill in entire lip with a similar red liner and then apply lipstick. Also if you want to play with the shade, try layering a fuschia gloss over your red lip and watch it pop!! Happy kissing!!! *MUAH*
