Pretty in Pink and Coppers Tones

Hi Dolls! As many of you know, I seriously love makeup. I mean I love it so much I went and started my own line. There is a new trend happening that I’ve seen just about everywhere. From the carpet to the runway to the streets, this “pink eye” makeup is something you are going to want to try. It’s no longer reserved for super girly girls or halloween princess costumes, pink eye makeup has officially entered badass territory. Depending on the shade you choose you are able to transform your look from soft and romantic to fierce and diva esque. 

Lily Collins pre Golden Globes and carpet ready. Love love love the pink.

Pink has the ability to soften and freshen the face. Eyeshadow in light blush hues has been making waves in the beauty community,  and in some instances, classic pink shadow has been revamped with glitter and carefully blended in with copper shades for a more daring look. I suggest Charlotte Tilbury’s Luxury Palette in “Vintage Vamp” (it even has a tutorial!). Or if you are going for more of a dewy look with a glossy finish, my favorite has to be Tom Ford’s Cream Color for eyes in “pink haze.”

This trend has even hit the runways. Models backstage at Chanel.

Meanwhile, other beauty gurus are sporting rose-colored eyelids.

Brie Larson, Jordan Dunn and Emma Stone sporting some different shades of pink

If you are going for more of a natural face, some dustier pinks almost act like a highlighters like Lancôme Color Design Sensational Effects Eyeshadow. Basically every shade of dusty pink you could want is part of that collection. Plus, the girlie shade is more versatile than you might think. Pink eye shadow can be an chic monochromatic look. One of my favorites is the Nars Duo Eyeshadow in “bouhtan.”

I just love how @beautybyaleksje did this makeup. How gorgeous?!


Check out the pink and coppery brown shades in my Gretchen Christine “Golden Girl” Palette that would be a great way to recreate this look. I cannot wait to try this look.

50 Shades of Pink and Red

Thanks to everyone who posted such sweet comments on my social media pages about my look for our Girls Valentines Day at Dior in Beverly Hills.  My Dress is by an Australian Company called C/MEO Collective and unfortunately is sold out from what I can see, however  check out the other red options from this company right here…. or  click here for a version of my dress. Also here are some other great red options as well from Neiman Marcus 

My shoes are by the one and only Alexander McQueen but I got them a few years back.  I love them because they are a classic shoe that I pull out every once in a while to really make an outfit pop.  The skull heads on the front of them is not typically something I would wear, but they are so much fun and so different then what I usually do, so its fun every once it a while to change it up. I kept my earrings simple and just did some gold drop earrings by  Chanel  to help pull the gold embellishments in from my shoes.

My Hair was done by the one and only Victor Paul from the Victor Paul Salon and because I wanted my hair back due to the big side flare on my dress we decided to go with this super cool poofy braid look. I just love this unique fun look by VP.  Give him a call for all your hair needs and styles http://www.victorpaulsalon.co

Love it to Peaches

IMG_9975IMG_9976 IMG_9979IMG_9981  IMG_9982 IMG_9983

Loving the peaches I did with my makeup yesterday, it complimented my dress from BCBG so well.

Here is a breakdown of the products I used and links to easily find:

Nars sheer glow foundation  in the color Figi for under my eyes and Barcelona for all over the face.

Tom Ford foundation stick  in color toffee to contour, then used Mac “Give me Sun” mineralize skin finish  all over the foundation contour once blended out to set it.

Nars Torrid Blush on the cheeks

Gretchen Christine Eye Color palette in Golden Girl on the lids and the darker brown color in the palette for the liner below the eyes mixed with Brown Script eye shadow from Mac and Raven Gel Eyeliner from Gretchen Christine

Lilly Lashes in Cannes were used with individuals (coming soon to Gretchen Christine) on top.

Lastly on my lips I used a new favorite color from Gerard Cosmetics and a lip gloss on top from Mac with Makeup forever lip liner in color nude beige

My dress in these pictures is from BCBG but was a couple seasons back, however check out what they have now, their stuff is amazing and its one of my favorite stores to shop in. Hope this helps inspire you to create a gorgeous palette of peaches on your beautiful faces as well! Happy Shopping

Stay Glam
