FOTD/EOTD & My failed NOTW

This is how I did my face today for work. Very simple.   No foundation because it’s hot!  I’m going to add some lashes later for when I go to Kitty Bradshaw’s Blog Anniversary Event later this evening.

I did my toes in Essie’s Tarte Deco. I do not like it at all! It looked so good on my hands though. 

NOTW & FOTD Using MAC To The Beach & Youngblood Cosmetics

I wanted to try something different. I’ve seen French done with color before, so here goes… I used China Glaze’s ‘For Audrey’ and Essie’s ‘Mesmerized’. My toes are painted in Mesmerized as well.

Today I worked with Makeup Artist, Ashlee K. along with four other talented MUA’s preparing models for the Fashion for the Cure Fashion Show, which was being held today, May 22, 2010 at Libation in New York City.  When I get the pictures I will definitely post them.

This is the look I had today… Let me know what you think.

I am trying to get my hair stylist to color my hair.

What do you guys thing?

I used to have caramel highlights when my hair was longer.

NOTW: Oh So Pretty in Pink

This is Essie’s Flirty Fuschia.  It’s a very, very bright pink nail polish with bluish undertones.  I love this color, it’s so perfect for spring.

I actually used a white nail polish as a base to make it show up bright & true to color.

NOTW: I Love the Limelight!

This is Funky Limelight by Essie.  I picked this up at a nail supply wholesaler for $4 (mentioned in this post).  I was scared this color wouldn’t look well on me.  I actually like it. Love it maybe.  I chose to paint my nails & toes this color since I will be in Sunny Florida for the weekend (quick little getaway) with my hubby!

What do you think of this color?

Do you have specific colors you like to wear when you go away?
