Fuchsia Sparkle Lips for MTV Host


On MTV #HIPHOPPOV TV show I gave one of the host, Sowmya a sultry look. Sparkle Lips was the main focus for this glam look. Instead of playing up her eyes, I wanted to give Sowmya a bright bold color lip with my new signature ” Sparkle Lip” applique. It’s trendy and I know she could rock it. So let the bling begin.

Wedding Day Blues: Something Borrow Something Blue


As young girls, we grew up hearing “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, and Something Blue.” Well, that something blue will be one of the new trends in 2012 for brides. Bright and bold Cobalt blue will be seen more at weddings in the flowers, bridesmaids’ dresses, brides’ Christian Louboutin shoes and especially stunningly resplendant eye shadows.


At a recent bridal photo shoot, I decided to play with a L’OREAL HIP DUO blue eye shadow named Forgiven that can be used in a more smoky way. Remember when wearing a strong eye, you should keep the lip color very light and I went with NYX Cosmetics Diamond Sparkle lipstick in Beige Sparkle. There are many brands offering various shades of brilliant blue eyeshadows to achieve a smoky blue eye on your wedding day. Here’s a cheat sheet to some of my favorite shades of blues that you can select from.
L’OREAL Paris HIP Eyeshadow in Forgiven
So brides, don’t stress because your something blue doesn’t have to be a family heirloom, a gift from your mom, or a hidden garter anymore. It can be glamxuriously worn down the aisle. What was your something blue on your wedding day?

Makeup: Get Tangerine Orange This Spring

Makeup by Connecticut Makeup Artist Brandy Gomez-Duplessis
It’s definitely spring time and I am starting to retire some of my winter clothes, scarves, and boots. I am excited about wearing a pop of color, and this spring my palette will consist of beautifully ostentatious oranges. 

During New York Fashion Week Fall 2012, designers like Nanette LeporeMonique LhuillierTracy ReeseAnna Sui, and Michael Kors, all flirted with shades of bright orange on the runway with their collection, makeup, clothes, and even nails. Just last week, I was a guest makeup artist at the Sephora stores in Greenwich and Danbury, the store was hosting a high end limited collection called Tangerine Tango.

Bold tangerine lip colors will not be the only choice this spring, as there will be lots of yummy orange lip shades for you to choose from. You can select a sheer lip, a stain lip, or a strong bold lip color. If you’re not ready to add it to your lips then make sure to add this delicious color to your wardrobe or your nails.
