I loved doing this romantic makeup look on my gorgeous friend. Her skin is flawless and she looked so stunning. This neutral, yet bold, makeup look goes perfect with red lips! I also added a wing for an extra pop of fierce which looked great with her eyelash extensions. Since my model has oilier skin, I used the Urban Decay de-slick setting spray on the skin throughout the process. I also pressed the Laura Mercier Translucent Powder on the skin to help with oil-control. The highlighter on the cheek bones helped her skin look radiant and luminous, yet still oil-free.

I wanted to do a more simple, every-day appropriate, make look. This is one of my go to looks because it doesn't require many difficult steps like a winged eyeliner. It look great with any outfit and it's soft enough for every day, and glam enough for a night out because of the bold lashes.

I wanted to share with you ladies this amazing discovery I made a few weeks ago. My hair is wavy/curly and very fluffy and frizzy. With this Diamond Flat Iron by Irresistible Me, I can sleep on my hair and it holds the straight so beautifully. Not only is the quality amazing, but it's algo super cute!

This tool is Hi-Tech and has crushed diamond particles mixed with tourmaline, which help to protect your hair and maintain your natural color, moisture, and hair oils. Your hair will feel healthy, shiny, and frizz-free. This is exactly what it's done to my hair. It also helps your hair against humidity, which I can definitely agree with. My hair tends to get wavy very quick after I straighten it, and this flat iron has definitely held my hair straight and frizz-free. The settings come from 260 -450 degrees and you can choose the amount of heat for your hair. I like using mine on 400 degrees. You can also use this flat iron to curl your hair as I have done below. 

*This product was sent to me for review. This is 100% my opinion after trying out the product and seeing the results.
