November Favorites!!

27 Nov

Hello Lovers!!

As the month comes to a close, I wanted to take a moment to highlight some of my favorite go-to products this month. I have been into a very neutral eye paired with a dark lip vibe lately. These products help me to achieve that beautifully, as well as lasting all day!

Here is a break down of the list going clockwise:

Ulta Voluptuous Volume Mascara – THIS. That is what I have to say about this mascara. It is amazing and does everything I need it to do. I get great volume and a wonderful darkness and depth to my lashes with this product.This can be purchased at your local Ulta.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Liptar in ‘Black Dahlia’ – THIS.IS.EVERYTHING. I am absolutely in love with this liptar. It is everything that fall and winter should be; dark, sultry, smooth and warm in the coolest way. It comes on as the darkest blood cherry red and also has a slight stain quality that makes it so you never look like you’re without color in your lips. It’s gorgeous in short. It can be purchased at occmakeup.com, at their stand alone store in NYC or at select Sephora locations.

Sugarpill Cosmetics Pressed Eyeshadow in ‘Bulletproof’ – This matte black shadow is a must have! I feel that this is an essential eye shadow to have in your collection. I literally us this shadow in 90% of my makeup looks. This month I have used Bulletproof to set my liner and smudge it out for more depth. Purchase this at http://www.sugarpillshop.com/

Urban Decay 24HR Liquid Eyeliner in ‘Perversion’ – This is a great liquid eyeliner that is easy to apply and lasts all day. It is one of the darkest eyeliners I have used and I have never had a problem with applying it. Purchase at urbandecay.com, Ulta or Sephora.

Sauce Box Cosmetics Eyeshadow in ‘Spy’ – This eyeshadow has been the perfect highlight for me. It is easy to use, not to chalky or powdery but also not too strong for a subtle highlight. I use it under my brow to really emphasize the shape and bring some brightness to my eyes. This can be purchased at sauceboxcosmetics.com

Inglot Cosmetics Freedom System Rainbow Shadows – The freedom system from Inglot is one of my favorite things in the makeup world. You pick and choose what colors you want and make a wonderful palette with them, As a step up….they have the Rainbow shadows, which contain 3 colors in one pan. This is the perfect set up for lid, crease and a highlight all in one!! They have lots of options, I only posted some of the options that are perfect for somebody doing a neutral look. These can be purchased at inglotusa.com or Inglot stores.

What are your favorite products for November?

Hurricane Sandy Relief

3 Nov

Hello Lovers,

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy there are many emotions that people are going through. Sadness, despair, loss, helplessness and hardship are included in those emotions. There is also thanks, gratitude, love and a sense of being blessed that many are feeling. It is hard to decide what direction to move toward as we try and put pieces of our lives back together, but we just having the desire and fortitude is the first step. In the aftermath, while conversing with my sorority sisters, we all felt an overwhelming need to help. We were looking for how we could help and were only finding places that wanted monetary donations. But we wanted to do more than just give money, this is our home and our neighbors that have been affected. We decided to be proactive and help locally as much as we can. So we are collecting gently used clothes, toiletries, toys and household items to donate to families. We are asking anybody who knows a family in need to contact us. If we don’t get any lists of families within a week or so, we will be bringing all donations to a major group or organization.

There is a need right now, not only to repair and replace what has been lost, but also to share information. The Sisters of Sigma Iota Sigma Multicultural Sorority Inc are asking you to please tell us if you know of a worthy organization collecting these items, looking for hands on volunteers or a family that is in need, that information would be greatly appreciated.  We have Sisters in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, Long Island, the Bronx, Westchester and Albany that you can contact if you know people in need. You can email any sister from the list below:
Kimberly Mitchell – Long Island (Suffolk County) – kcamitchell@gmail.com

Tiffany Clemmings – Long Island (Suffolk County) – tiffanyclemmings@gmail.com

Brendaliz Capellan – Brooklyn – Brendaliz.capellan30@gmail.com

Teazia Vincent – Westchester – teaziavincent@gmail.com

Thank you for reading and I will be praying for everybody’s safety and well being.

Happy Halloween

31 Oct

Hello Hue Lovers!!

I understand that the devastation of Hurricane Sandy has us all shaken to the core, and has been life changing for many. For those who have lost loved ones, possessions or even just power, you are in my thoughts and prayers. I am praying that you all come out of this safe and sound. For those fortunate enough to have power, do not hesitate to open your arms to friends and neighbors who may not be as fortunate.

Today is a day that has always been a celebration for children, teens and even some adults!! Halloween is a fun and light hearted holiday that allows us to let our imaginations free. For those who can, please take the time to enjoy this day. Dress your children, siblings, cousins etc. up and have fun. Try trick or treating or just enjoying the outdoors while there is still daylight!!

Just a few tips for today:
1. Trick or treat during daylight and stop to head home before dark. Many street lights are still out and power lines are on the ground. This is a safety hazard.

2. If you are driving around try and wrap up before dusk because many traffic signals are out.

3. It has been very chilly since yesterday, so be sure to layer before going out.

4. HAVE FUN!!

What are your plans for today?

Thanks for reading. And remember….

Out of this World (Halloween Post)

28 Oct

Hello Hue Lovers!!

I hope you all enjoyed your pre-Halloween weekend!! I went to a Halloween party hosted by my company and I ran into the worst scenario!! At 6pm I made the decision that I did not want to be Medusa, my planned Halloween costume!! At this time I racked my brain and wardrobe for some idea of what to be and this is what I came up with.

An ALIEN!! This was the perfect costume for me…quick and easy to put together. I went for a warrior princess vibe with my hair and outfit. I love the color play that you can do with a costume like this and I definitely recommend it for those who haven’t picked a costume yet!! You can go big and paint your entire body or just your face. As far as makeup….the options are endless, this is the perfect costume for somebody who wants to let some of their creativity out!! I definitely would do this again for a themed party or event.


Have you planned your costume yet?

Thank you for reading….and remember…

Tuesday Tip : Mix and Match!! (Halloween Post)

23 Oct

Hello Hue Lovers!!

For all of my fashion lovers out there, we know that mixing prints is huge right now! Floral with stripes, polka dots with plaid…. if it works, it’s a go!! This idea of mixing and matching prints and patterns can help you with a unique and fun Halloween look, as well as your daily fashion. You can pick a theme for your face paint and use patterns  to bring your look to a new place this Halloween!!

Tonight I have taken a request from one of our Hue Lovers , Lisa F and put my own twist on it. Lisa requested a patchwork doll look for Halloween, so I took that request and decided to make it a mixed pattern patchwork doll. I pulled my inspiration from patterns that I enjoy: polka dots, floral and plaid! I think it came together to be a creepy but fun Halloween look!! I would like to give a special thank you to Lisa  for her wonderfully inspiring idea !! I hope you enjoyed the result!!

What are your favorite patterns to play with?

I hope you enjoyed this look !! Thank you for reading and remember….

Kim Loves Hue ;-)
