Night Out On The Town....


Hi Beauties…Bright colors are no longer just for the Spring and Summer months. Update your Fall look with a punch of color for a bolder look. Here is another “Beauté Mark” exclusive look I created mixing a variety of textures and styles. I love mixing classic pieces with more modernized, trendier ones.

Date Night With the Garrett’s

18 Jul

Hi Beauties…I hope you had a great weekend!

My hubby declared last Thursday “DATE NIGHT”. We had a rough week and instead of complaining, he decided to spend time with his favorite lady. That’s why I love this man soooo much! We’ve been together for 13 years and I still get butterflies when we go out on dates. For me it’s the excitement of knowing that I will have my man’s undivided attention for hours. Date night is a tradition we have kept for many years to remind us of why we picked each other to spend the rest of our lives with. It’s funny how you will go all out when you are trying to court your spouse, but once you get them you get too comfortable and don’t want to do the things you used to do.

I decided to make a video of my look and share a few photos of our romantic evening. We went downtown to Cuban Revolution and enjoyed dinner outside on the patio. The weather was great and the conversation even better. Life is short..make time for the ones who love you and the ones you can’t live without. I love you BG! xoxoxoxo

Enjoy Life! Until next time Beauties…MUAH

>Ruby Who? Ruby Woo!

5 Mar

Hi Beauties,

I have been a the prowl for the perfect matte finished red lipstick, and I FINALLY found it! MAC Ruby Woo is the perfect deep, matte finished shade that I was looking for. The number one rule with makeup is that there are No rules. This is especially true when trying to pick the perfect shade of lipstick. It is extremely hard to find the PERFECT red lipstick without a little trial and error. Red lipsticks are orange based or blue based, and some experts/makeup artist suggest orange base for warmer skin tones/blue for cool skin tones. I disagree…some of  the orange based reds look too orange on me. The Ruby Woo is a blue based lipstick and I ♥ it on me. Here are a few pics/video that I made using Ruby Woo. Try it out and let me know how you like it.

Until Next Time Beauties ♥

 

**Matte finished lipsticks are VERY drying so use a lip conditioner before applying**
