Glitz and glam








*Glitz & Glam*
The photo was done by my husband of course.
My friend Jill design and creates her own line of jewelry. Jill wanted me to do her make up for her photo shoot. I was delighted since she's going to be using these photos for an ad in Martha Stewart bridal magazine.
All the jewelry that she's wearing were all design by her of course. All hand made and one of a kind design. prefect for wedding.
We did a few different looks, didn't have much time and the weather sucked as well. But we manage and did what we could..
Both looks were done on the same day. I had to wash off the first look then start on the second look. baby wipe def came in handy! Anyways I just wanted to share this with you guys.. Sorry if this blog doesn't make any sense lol I'm in a rush cause I have a really big bridal show this weekend. I'm suppose to be packing up my make up and stuff but here I am blogging lol anyways hubby is yelling at me to get off.. so enjoy and enjoy your weekend guys! Again this isn't my best work at all.. I was just starting out...One thing I love was that her face was glowing!

Fall make up


This is me wearing the look, I know you can't really see it but
the only photo I had. This is a month after I had Chloe so I was still super big!
Since then I lost 18 pound! thanks to my diet..





Fall make up- I love fall and love the colors of fall.. Bring on the orange,coral and purples!
I never been scare to use orange or coral, although it looks kinda ugly but it's very pretty on. It's all about picking the right color and putting them together.
These photo's were from a wedding I did.. Make up was done by airbrush.
My pick for this season colors are-
-paint pot-
-Brule -apply all over eye-then apply on brow bone to highlight
-Naked lunch-Apply naked lunch on eyelid
-Coppering-with a blending brush apply on crease and blend very well
-Sketch-add sketch to the outer corner of eye

I wish I can do a whole look on it and go into details but this is the best I can do.
Kids are too needy and now that Chloe can roll over, I have to keep my eyes on her at all time.
Promise to go into better detail guys! But def try these colors out, It's very pretty!
If you guys would like to know how I lost most of my baby weight, Let me know I'll do a whole post about the diet.
I went from 150 to 107 in less then 3 month and I didn't work out at all. It was all hardcore food dieting.
I'm going to be working out once again my DR. gave me the a ok! Wasn't able to work because of my pubic bone but now my Dr. gave me the green light! renew my gym membership! Going back to bike riding again.. ahhh feels great!

I'm back!



Sorry been so mia! I've been so busy with the kids and work..
I'm doing better now, food poisoning was a bitchhhhh.. The pain was out of this world! Ever since I had food poisoning I have cut beef & pork out of my diet. Been beef & pork free for over a month now.
It has also been 3 months since I had Chloe.. I'm down to a size 2 now... Still have to tone up my body and I'm starting to work out again.
Thank you for all the well wishes guys! The kids are doing great! Here is a photo of Chloe and Sonia.. Kai doesn't really like to have his photo taken lol
I'll try to find more time to update!

I've been in the hospital

Hey guys,
Sorry I haven't had chance to update since my trip back from Texas. I fell really ill this week to a really bad case of food poisoning. I spent 3 days in the hospital, I woke up with a massive abdominal pain to my left side. The pain was so bad that I was crying and screaming.. Then my body just pretty much crash, I had chills,sweating,dehydration and vomiting..
I'm back home now, doing a little better but still not feeling like myself but it will take time. So I'm just trying to rest up now.. It was soo tough to be away from the kids for 3 days.. I had to convince the Dr. to let me go home by the 3rd day. Which he didn't want too.. But I beg him & told him that I will follow all of his directions.
Once I start feeling better I will def find the time to update.
I really do miss you guys!

Gold digger makeup lol



Since I'm going to be away, I thought I should share just one more post before I leave.
Here is my gold digger look lol. Hair and makeup was all by me. All within the same day, I just let my hair down by the end of the day.
Never thought I would say this but I loved my gold digging lips lol and No I wasn't naked in the last picture lol





SUMMER time makeup tips


Summer look. I love summer and all but I really hate how hot&humid it is and how my face would just be sweating like crazy!
For summer I always opt. for less makeup. I love a fresh looking face for the summer time look.
-Exfoliating your face is so important, I'm sure you all know that already.
I use St.Ives olive oil exfoliate.
-Moisturizers is a must! esp the ones that has spf protection.
-Water base foundation is best for summer time.Avoid creamy foundation such as-studio fix & moistureblend. They are best for fall/winter
-For power I keep it simple and use -Mac Blot powder- Great for the hot summer heat. It really take away the shine. The great part is that it's also color-less which mean you won't look cakey.
I keep my eye makeup very simple and natural. With just a few coats of mascara.
-Blush and bronzer is a must!
I just keep my lips light and pinky =)
So here is my summer makeup look.
Hope you guys enjoy..
I will be busy and won't be blogging that much, Were taking a trip to visit my family in Texas.
I will be doing a lot of makeovers while I'm there though! will def keep you guys posted!
Went to see Transformers with my son last night.. Oh what a great movie! I love my Shia! He is such a hottie! There is just something about Shia...

I never met Karen before but I had to do all of the styling for her.
