BA Star Palette: Easy Smokey Eye

BA Star Palette: Easy Smokey Eye

Samples were provided for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own. 

BA Star sent me the Natural Eye Shadow Palette with Gel Glitters and the Glue. Eye Shadow & Glitter Base to review. BA Star eye makeup is creamy, but not so creamy that it slides off with humidity or when you sweat. It has a staying power that I have not seen from other cream shadows. The pigment is also awesome. I’ve bought creamy shadows that slipped off quickly and had no pigment. This was a nice change!

Glam-A-THON Lipstick Lounge

The tickets to this event were complementary. All opinions are 100% my own.

This year I attended the 7th annual Glam-A-THON™ Lipstick Lounge. It was an amazing party for an great cause, fighting breast cancer! Glam-A-THON™ proved to me that without a doubt, you can do good things and have a blast doing them. I ate an crazy amount of sweets, got my makeup done, and added an awesome pink streak to my hair. There is no way that I am missing this event next year! I took some pics of the awesome attendees that just were oozing fabulousness!

Beach Chic

I have not been to the beach in quite some time since we bought a house with a pool, but that does not mean I should stop looking beach chic this summer! Beach hair waves are so fabulous and I wish I had the energy to do it myself everyday! I have natural waves in my hair, but it’s just not the same as getting your hair done. I love the new era of hair salons where you can go into a salon and completely avoid the hair dye smell and just get a great look for a night out or photo shoot. My friend, Sahily of Pretty In Pigment hosted a blogger party at the local SoBlo Salon where they did everyone’s hair and makeup artists from Neiman Marcus YSL counter came to put the finishing touches on out summer looks!

Summer Beauty Essentials

Hello everyone!

I’m Sahily from Prettyinpigment.com and I’m a South Florida beauty and fashion blogger. I have been passionate about makeup since my childhood when I used to put makeup on my grandmother. My skills improved through the years and I have been a freelance makeup artist for over 5 years. Pretty In Pigment is where I share my love for makeup with the world by sharing tips, tricks, tutorials, product reviews and inspirational makeup looks. One of my favorite things about blogging is trying out new products and voicing my thoughts about them, as well as tricks on how to use them best.

I have spent the last few weeks putting together my top beauty picks for summer 2013. Memorial Day weekend has just passed, which officially means that summer has arrived! It’s time to break out the floppy hats, suits, sunnies and your summer beauty essentials!

Transition Your Wardrobe from Fall to Spring

Transition Your Wardrobe from Fall to Spring using bright yellow accessories. Cranberry was a huge fall color that might have ended up in your wardrobe, but you don’t have put all your cranberry and fall clothing into storage this spring. Give fall prints like hounds tooth and your fall colors a spring refresher with a pop of color like a pair of yellow sandals and a yellow belt.

Nuance Salma Hayek

The Nuance Salma Hayek line is an exclusive for CVS/pharmacy. The Nuance Salma Hayek line was inspired by Salma’s grandmother, a cosmetologist who developed her own homemade beauty remedies. I really love how the all the products smell fresh and have so many natural ingredients. During pregnancy, I am extra sensitive to ingredient and smells. All the products had an amazing aroma that relaxed me.

Spring Trends

Maria is wearing a tone of spring trends in this outfit. My favorite trend is eyelet. Luckily, the Spring 2013 runways were filled with eyelets. Heavy hitters like Valentino, Giambattista Valli, Bottega Veneta, Stella McCartney, and Victoria Beckham all showed the delicate white eyelet fabric in modern ways. I have been a huge fan of eyelet since I had eyelet pillows on my childhood bed. My mother always said that eyelet reminded her of her mother. I was young when she died so there are very few things that remind me of her. Eyelet is one of them.
