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 patternsΒ  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 LisaΒ  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….

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

22 Oct

Hello Hue Lovers!!

How beautiful was this weekend, right?? After a gorgeous fall weekend I feel great going into the new week. Though I worked on Saturday, I was able to enjoy a wonderful and uplifting Sunday by attending the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. The energy was amazing and the day was absolutely beautiful. In my post, Tuesday Tip: Always Remember that Hope Makes All Things Possible!. , I showed a Day Look and Night Look for Breast Cancer Awareness. For the walk I decided to wear makeup that was practical for a walk but still fun and inspired!

As you can see I went veryyyy light with my makeup for the walk. I rocked a simple eye with liner, but Sugarpill’s Dollipop gave the perfect pop of pink on my lid. For my lips I decided to go nice and bright pink!! I used OCC’s Anime lip tar topped with Revlon’s Lip Butter in Lollipop, I darkened the corners with a black liner blended in.

I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful and productive weekend! Here are a couple of pics from my day!

What are your plans for next weekend?

Tuesday Tip: Less is More Pt. 2 (Halloween Post)

16 Oct

 

Hello Hue Lovers!!

Today I would like to give you a quick Tuesday Tip that will help you with your Halloween plans this years!! Save money!!!! Instead of going out and spending $25-$50 on a Halloween costume, take $10 to the dollar store and get everything you need for an awesome Halloween look. Makeup is a great way to bypass paying for a costume and turning less into more. You can pick a makeup look and use what clothes, accessories and props you have in your house to complete your look. As I’ve said in the past, I am a huge fan of the impact that a split face has so that always helps your homemade costume. In my first post Tuesday Tip: Less is More (Halloween Post!!). , I showed you two looks….here is another great half face Halloween idea!!

Tonight I have done a Halloween look that I call “The Transition”, it depicts a girl becoming a comic book character. She goes from a pretty girl to a wide eyed, pop art styled cartoon girl. With this look I can wear a simple outfit and call it a day!! It only requires about 6 items that can all be purchased at a dollar store. These items will fill all of your pop art/comic book needs: black eyeliner and white eyeliner, a bright eyeshadow (I used blue), a bright blush and three lipsticks. One lipstick will serve as your dot maker and the other two will be your lip colors. This can keep your Halloween costs under $10!!!! You can even pick up some makeup for a play, musical or just for fun!!

What do you plan to be this Halloween?
I hope this tip helped you!! Thanks for reading and remember….

MyTee Monday

15 Oct

 

Hello Hue Lovers!!

Today’s post is dedicated to the brand Mytee B.A.D. (myteebad.com). I have posted about this brand in the past, with a look inspired by their Tripe L bracelet Tuesday Tip: Be Inspired!!. In thatt post I focused on the “Live” bracelet in the Triple L set and today I am doing a look inspired by the “Love” Bracelet in the set. This bracelet is adorable and the perfect way to represent ‘love’.Β  It is a hand beaded bracelet with gorgeous colors like pink, fuchsia and purple. It has skulls, which we all know are huge right now and it has a silver medallion that reads “love”. I wear this bracelet often for a nice pop of color in my daily arm candy.

I decided to create 3 looks for this bracelet because I felt that “love” would deserve more than just one! I went with an editorial look first by having a simple eye and some heart focused lip art. This was definitely something fun just for pictures, but unfortunately not something I could wear out and maintain. The next two looks are very similar, the main difference being that one is more purple and fuchsia based while the other has a bit more pink in it. These looks are definitely wearable for a fall first date or a night out with your sweetheart. All three looks feature my top 3 favorite Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetic liptars; Belladonna (Ultra Violet) Black Dahlia (Blackest Blackened Red or Blood Red) and Anime (Bright Neon Fuchsia/Pink). In the first look liptars are used to feature a Black Dahlia heart, while in the second look I mixed the colors to create the perfect fall plum darkened at the corners with Sugarpill’s Bulletproof pressed eyeshadow.

The Love bracelet gave me the opportunity to express my love for a few things in one shot! I used liptars that I will not hesitate to say I am in love with. They are amazing to work with and the colors are to die for.Β  My all time favorite color is purple and you can see that I put it everywhere I could in this look. Along with my OCC liptars, I used shadows from Sugarpill Cosmetics and Inglot Cosmetics. These three companies are my favorite makeup companies and it was great to use them in a look representing love.

What are some products or companies that you love? What is your go-to product for a date?

I hope you all enjoy this look and thanks for reading πŸ™‚ Remember….

Tuesday Tip: Always Remember that Hope Makes All Things Possible!

9 Oct

Hello Lovers!!

Today I would like to talk about something that is near and dear to all of our hearts; HOPE! Hope is what makes the impossible become possible and gives us more strength than we knew we could ever possess. Hope for a brighter tomorrow gets us through our days. I have decided to begin doing posts dedicated to hope and awareness for many causes that affect us on many levels. I personally have loved ones fighting/dealing with cancer, diabetes and cerebral palsy just to name a few. I think it is important to acknowledge the beautiful and amazing inspiration I have gotten from the people in my life affectedΒ  hardship.

Tonight’s look is dedicated to a beautiful and fiery woman who has a heart of gold, Toni Mercado. I met her at church and have always felt a motherly love from her. She is fun, compassionate and a spitfire!! I have taken these qualities for my inspiration in tonight’s breast cancer awareness inspired looks. I have created a day look and a night look that incorporate a soft and feminine beauty with soft pink and a fun and fiery splash of hot electric pink! I have all the hope in the world for her and she is in my thoughts and prayers daily. A beautiful soul in all regards. This is for you Toni.

Red, Black and Gold for the Fearless and BOLD!!

4 Oct

Hello Lovers!!
Today is a very special day for me πŸ˜‰ What is it you ask?? It is founder’s day for my sorority, Sigma Iota Sigma Multicultural Sorority Inc. ! We were founded on October 4, 1994 by 4 culturally diverse women. Because being a SISter in this organization has changed my life in the last 4.5 years, I knew that I had to do a look dedicated to it!!

Our organizations’ colors are red, black and gold….but that wasn’t my only inspiration for this look. I was greatly inspired by the amazing women I have met through this organization and what we stand for. My look is bold, fiery, interesting and captivating just like my sorority SISters! I experimented with some new shapes for my interpretation of this look and I love how they work! Trying something new is always exciting with makeup…..and the best part? You can always wash it off and start again!

I hope you all enjoy this look as much as I do!!

What new things have you tried with your makeup latey??

Thanks for reading…. And remember….
