Although it's my boo Rihanna's 25th birthday today, it looks like she is giving us the biggest present of all. According to her instagram she's FINALLY inked a makeup collab with MAC. She's also been named as a "Creative Director" for MAC. I've been waiting on this for YEARS and I'm entirely too excited right now.
Check out these excerpts from Women's Wear Daily about this majah collab:
"The first product to launch will be RiRi Woo, a lipstick inspired by her favorite MAC red, Ruby Woo. Its release will coincide with Rihanna’s Diamonds Tour concerts on May 4 and 5 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, where MAC will open a pop-up shop on the first night to showcase the line."
"Although MAC has collaborated with myriad brands and celebrities in the past, this is the first time the brand has worked with a famous person for more than just a one-off project. “We always say that MAC likes to go on a date but doesn’t really want to go into a relationship,” said John Demsey, group president of the Estée Lauder Cos. Inc., MAC’s parent company. “This relationship with Rihanna is a long-term one that involves the development of four distinct color initiatives.

I'm a sucker for a "holiday" mani! Didn't want to go all out with pink & hearts & bows so opted for a more subtle yet festive look.

Even though I think V-day is kinds corny, I couldn't resist putting together my Valentine's Day wishlist. Here are a few cute things that I wouldn't mind getting from the boo, or myself, this year!
Physician's Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Baked Bronzer (drugstore $13.95)
Physician's Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Illuminating Bronzing Veil (drugstore, $13.95)

How cute are these! I love the PF Happy Booster Collection && the little hearts are perfect for the national day of love!
MAC Lady Danger (left) and Ruby Woo (right) (MAC, $15)
These two classic reds are definitely cult faves and I'm surprised I don't have either of them! Red lips are a sexy classic to impress your valentine!
Red Cherry Lashes #43 (Madame Madeline, $1.99)
I've had my eyes on these lil lovelies for a while now. They're flirty and fun yet natural looking.
NARS Pure Radiance Tinted Moisturizer (Sephora, $42)
Perfect to achieve that sexy "no makeup" makeup glow that men love.
Victoria's Secret ANYTHING!!
I must admit that I'm pretty much obsessed with all things cute & lace-y. Anything from VS instantly makes me feel 10x sexier definitely a V-day gift I would love to receive!
What do you guy's hope to get for Valentine's Day this year??
I know. I know. It's been sooo long since I've been able to blog. My personal life has been cray! between Work, family, boyfriend, && grad school applications, I'm beat. I'm also in the process of moving and had to pack up all of my cosmetics :-((( for the next few weeks so you probably wont be seeing any new looks anytime soon. I've got a few small hauls I need to post but I'm a slacker so hey.
Anywho on to the point, last month I unexpectedly had the privilege of doing makeup for the EnspiRED Fashion Show at the University of Michigan. I had a really good time but didn't get to take a lot of pictures for the blog because I had to do 38 girls in 11 hours BY MYSELF! ONE MUA! ONE BRUSH! BY MYSELF! **Kevin Hart voice** It was a ton of work, I was super tired & covered in glitter by the end of the day but it was an awesome experience. I've done big shows before but I usually work with other MUAs but due to some last minute conflicts I was the only MUA that could make it to the show. I've never worked on so many different faces in one day && it definitely was a learning experience for me!
Luckily they hired an awesome photographer and I was able to get a few shots of the ladies!

I know, I know, I'm late as usual. Don't judge me. My peaceful NYE i planned to spend in my bed somehow turned into a night of partying with the family. I was in rush to get to the festivities because of the last minute change of plans and didn't get a chance to get any real pics of my makeup, which was FAB if i do say so myself! Enjoy these phone pics for now and maybe I'll recreate the look again and take some better pics.
These pics really do the shadows no justice AT ALL! The black shadows had a rainbow holo glitter that really made my eyes sparkle and the shimmery blue on the inner corner really popped. Of course I put on the biggest lashes I could find and my new favorite nude lip combo!
