Spring 2014 Makeup Trends

The gorgeous Lily from Beauty With Lily has invited me to do a collaboration with her with the super sweet Liz from My Pretty Obsessions to do what makeup looks are trending this Spring 2014. Who's excited?!?! I am! I'm usually not a big follower of what's trending, but I will try it out and see if it works out for me. We need to step out of our comfort zones once in a while, and for this post I kinda went overboard and went bold. Go big or go home right?!? More on that later.

Before we do head on to the look I chose, here are a few that Lily has found with her research that will be trending this Spring:
  • Orange Lips *which Lily has chosen to do
  • Cobalt Blue eyeliner/ eyeshadow *Lily pairing with her orange lips!
  • Gold shadows *the look Liz will be doing
  • Rosy Eyes
  • Smokey Lilac eyes
  • Berry colored cheeks
  • Red Velvet Lips
  • Metallic eyeshadows
  • Chocolate Brown nail polish
  • Navy Blue liner

Go check out what these awesome, beautiful, smart ladies have done with their looks!

Review: The Dirty Side of Fashion Book

I will admit it, I am not good at taking care of my clothes and so I keep it simple and stay with 100% Cotton clothes. Those with such complicated fabrics like silks with sequins or beaded, pleated wools and such, all those goes to my dry cleaners. 
So when I was offered this book for review, I couldn't wait to read it!
