A Princess Party

By: Sam

Hey Guys! Hope you all survived the moody Mondays. This past weekend my niece, Leyla celebrated her 5th birthday with the help of a Disney princess theme. The weather was gorgeous, the kids were aplenty, and the food was delicious. Appropriately, ¬†Leyla dressed up as Belle from Beauty and the Beast ūüôā

I wanted to take this opportunity to wear my newNARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil¬†($25) in their new shade, “Cruella” which is a beautiful scarlet red. I used my favorite NARS blush¬†($29), “Luster”, my favorite YSL “Shocking” Mascara in jade black ($30), and finally highlight my brow bones with Benefit’s Watts Up highlighter¬†($30).¬†I must say I felt like a princess myself. After many humid sticky summer days, this past Saturday was the perfect weather to be dolled up. Below is a slideshow of some photos of my makeup look and of the party:

I also met a girl named Zomely. The first thing I noticed was her hair (of course), it was so long and healthy! Aside from having a blog worthy look, she was very sweet and open to sharing the scoop on her beauty:

PicFrame

Name: Zomely

Age: 19

Location: Westchester, NY

Favorite Beauty Product: “Lancome Liquid Eyeliner¬†($30) is my staple”.

On her waves: “I braid my hair when it’s wet, let it dry, and undo the braids”.

What’s your beauty secret? “This may sound weird but caffeine, it gives me enough energy to work out and feel good and helps control my appetite”.

Tell us! What makes you feel beautiful?

Manicure Monday – Is it fall yet?!

by: Katrina

Even though I”ll be missing Fall in NYC this year (I relocated to Puerto Rico – stay tuned for PR beauty posts) Sam, Kim, and I are beyond ¬†excited for fall beauty trends: new nail colors, new lip trends & ¬†dark lips, straight hair without frizz, cool make up without it melting off once you step outside, bangs maybe? ¬†I can keep going-We just cant wait!

With that said, Monday is Monday no matter where you go- it’s still the most annoying day of the week even if you’re surrounded by tropical weather and beaches. ¬†Manicure Monday posts are keeping me sane this morning/ afternoon so take a look at ours:

Kim’s Mani:¬†

From the Essie Fall 2013 “For the Twill of It” collection Kim has on¬†Vested Interest¬†:a mid-toned green-grey creme color. What made her choose this color? She’s dying for fall-That is all.

Sam’s Mani:

Sam has been nude-y and pink-y lately and ¬†wanted to take a trip on the wild side and has on “Into the Night” by OPI from their Amazing Spiderman Collection. (sam wasn’t playing when she said she wanted to get wild lol) It’s the perfect metallic midnight blue.
