Pictures of My Weekend

This weekend my husband and I visited Las Vegas because my cousin got married. Please check out some random images I shot along the way!

 Water show at the Bellagio was beautiful and a must see!

 Paris Hotel (can't wait to see the real thing this summer!)
The wedding cake from Leopold's Bakery, not only looked good but tasted good!

 My cup of Zen tea with honey, really helped my cold.

Color Blocking - Zara Lookbook

I love color! I am so excited that color blocking is on trend right now. While looking on the website for one of my favorite stores, Zara, I fell in love with their Spring collection. Can't wait to get my hands on some of these pieces - love that pink blazer!

Bridal Shower makeup session

I had the privilege of making over the lovely Leticia for her bridal shower. She was great to work with because she is in her words, "not afraid of makeup!" That is always great to hear from a new client. With that uninhabited spirit I'm sure she had a blast at her Sex in the City themed shower!

See below for more details on what I used to create this look!

New Year's Eve glam session

I know it's been a while since New Year's Eve but I just had to share this look with you guys. Nathalie asked me to glam her up for NYE and it was so much fun! She told me to do something simple yet fancy enough for going out. So, how do you think I did?

She loved it so much that she called me to do another makeover the following month. More pictures of that glam session to come!

Check below for more photos and details about how I achieved this look!

The Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art was yesterday. This event has been described as the fashion industry's Oscar night. You see, all the top designers bring out their best and at time most loved designs. As one would imagine the hair and makeup was no less that amazing.

Check out some of my favorite faces and costumes of the night:



SALMA HAYAK in Alexander McQueen couture


EVA MENDES in Stella McCartney

I'm Back!

It has been a long time since my last post. My apologies for the break. But I needed to do just that, take a break. I will have some new pics of my latest makeovers coming this week. Wedding season is here so I hope to have lots of lovely bridal inspiration for you as well. Thanks for your support and most of all patience.
