Beauty: I’m What Lupus Look Like

http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js_uacct = “UA-3446372-1”; urchinTracker();

Usually when I go to my Rheumatoid doctor and to physical therapy 2 times a week I always go with a full face of makeup and hair done. Unless I’m having a horrible painful day that I need to be admitted to the hospital. Today I decided that I wanted to wear purple because it’s the color for Lupus Awareness. I was surprise by all the compliments I received that I decided to write a beauty post about what makeup I was wearing. Now whenever I wear any shade of purple makeup this will be my way to share my reason why I rock purple…Lupus Awarness! I’m What Lupus Look’s Like.

Makeup: What’s Your Favorite Red Lipstick Shade This Season

Like many ladies I rarely wear red lipstick during the day. But when I do I actually like the  shade of red on my lips. I’ve played with different textures but I seem to like matte, satin high shine lipsticks. 
Being that it’s fall I was inspired by all the beautiful fall leaves and the gorgeous red Japanese maple tree in front of my home that I decided to rock a cherry bomb lip. 
Here are 5 of my favorite lipsticks this season. Let’s see if one of your favorites made my list.
1 .NARS Lipstick in Red Lizard (semi matte full powered red) $26.00


2. Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Berry (shine of a gloss berry red) $21.00


3. Bobbi Brown Limited Edition Lip Color in Sultry Red (soft matte bright blue red) $26.00


4. Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Cranberry (matte lip color deep red) $24.00



5.Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture SPF15 in Le Rouge (satin finish blood red) $35.00

Makeup Monday: When Beauty Meets Food With Chef Gina Keatley

Heading to the city at 5am…Glam life of a makeup artist 
A lot of makeup (STILA, L’OREAL, TOO FACED, NICKA K NY) I plan to use on Chef Gina Keatley from her Dukan Diet segment. This chef luvs makeup & lashes
I LOVE this foundation brush from NICKA K NY…it’s only $5.99. You can find Stila at Sephora, L’OREAL at CVS and NICKA K NY on their website.
Must have hair goodies from Sexy Hair & Absolute Hot 
Now this is how you bring your hair tools to set…Absolute Hot 4 & 1 is from the Nicka K NY family
Luv working with Chef Gina Keatley….she know her food and luv a sultry eye. 
I’m obsessed with how her makeup came out…flawless…those high shine lips are Crystal Shine Lipgloss from Nicka K  NY. Thanks to SEXYHAIR I was able to give Gina her signature pompadour  hair style.
This fab young lady is Constance Pulsfier, Dukan Diet brand ambassador and I’m going to give her a fresh makeup look & playful hair.
I really enjoyed working with Constance, doing both hair & makeup on her. She lost over 200lbs
