What Every Woman Needs in her Makeup Bag

What’s in your wallet makeup case? Too much no doubt. I’m guilty of having about 20 lipsticks and lipglosses in my makeup bag at any given time, and consciously I know I really don’t need that many.  One lipstick and one lipgloss are plenty.  And I have a ton of other stuff in there that […]

It’s Friday!  How are you going to get your fierce on?

Win the Perricone MD ‘Advanced Eye Area Therapy!’

I’m really lazy today, and I have been catching up on my friends’ blogs. Anyone who knows me, knows that I am an eye cream freak.  Addicted.  I refuse to have those lines in the corners of my eyes.  Yuck.  So Elana Pruitt,  over at Good Girl Gone Shopping, posted this contest for a free […]

Bling or Ding: Rihanna’s AMA Red Carpet Red Cat Eye look

I have to admit it, I love  Rihanna’s bold makeup statements. The red cat eye at the 2009 AMA’s was HOT!  I think that this could absolutely be a wearable look for the everyday woman.  With a little tweaking that is.  I love Rihanna’s look with blue eyeliner, but this red cat eye is fierce.

Want all eyes on you?  Go nude. Eva does it.  Beyonce’ does it.  Rihanna does it. Monica Lewinsky made it hot!  I’m talking nude lips. Shiny, glossy nude lips will have all eyes on your tonight.

Fierce Friday: Secret Weapon — Be a Top Heavy Girl

I think every woman yearns for that perfect chest, but I'm not talking DDD's here, no breast enlargement, I'm talking about makeup. Specifically, eye makeup that puts all the emphasis on the top of the eye.  I haven't heard this term in years, so I thought I'd bring it back. With eyes in focus, your face is […]

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye.” Miss Piggy I love Miss Piggy.  She’s a babe.

For all the Singles Ladies: Best Value When Buying Eyeshadow
