Nails Done, Hair Done, E'rythang Did ...

 Some girl in my class stopped me today & said "WOW! Your hair & make-up always look great!"

Even tho I have a 8am class Mondays & Tuesdays I still get done up.   There is nothing like having your hair & make-up done to start your day.  I always get questioned about how i do it or why i even bother.  Deep down inside I do it for myself.  I don't have to impress anyone BUT it does give you a certain pep in your walk.  I feel better when I know that i look better.  PLUS I'm a big believer in practicing what you preach.  I get stopped by girls all the time asking for tips & tricks.  If your in the beauty business, like myself,  who is going to take me seriously If I state that I'm a Make-Up Artist & Hairstylist if I don't look it.  I know I'm very picky with who I let near my face & hair,  If you don't look the part your not getting my $$$.

I've been all about simple yet dramatic looks lately.  I'm feeling the cold fall wind & have been all about smokey eyes for a week now.  (WARNING: next FOTD's will be smokey eyes =]) I'm all about sweeping one dramatic color on the lid & a matte skintone highlight to blend it out mascara & liner.  So simple yet gets the point across.  The other day Jess (check out her blog =]!) tweeted a picture where she used sketch on the lid & it looked fab.  I had to try it out this morning.

[NOTE: I DO NOT photoshop my pics although contrary to some peoples belief.  I played around with this picture because the lighting was off but i liked the way it came out.]

I changed the lip after seeing this picture.  I couldn't find the lipstick I wanted to use so I tried a Wet & Wild one and didn't like the look tho I did want a peachy lip.

Donna ♥ Baby said...

beautiful makeup! i would get done up every morning as well except i have no energy and im soo lazy in the mornings lol. but i agree with you! you can talk the part if you look the part. when i do go to school looking dolled up i get a boost of confidence and when i dont i feel so average. so i honestly think its great to hear that you do it for yourself :)

Aye chica te ves tan bonita all the time!! I luv it. But yes i have to agree in order to be taken seriously you have to make sure your made up!

ohyouprettythings said...

You are absolutely gorgeous! :]

Deanna said...

I couldn't agree more with you! When I am going to be out in public whether it be going to a special event or just running errands. I am going to look good doing it! Some of my friends think I am crazy for wearing a full face of make-up at Walmart, well I don't care! I do it for me, not them. When you are happy with how you look your whole attitude is different. And I don't care what anyone says, when you look put together & nice, people treat you different then when you are looking scrubby & plain jane. So I am going to keep rocking my red lips at 8am at the grocery store ;) Oh & that smokey eye is to die for! As always!

Reina said...
