E.L.F. & American Laser Center Summer Beauty Boost Event!

I am very proud & happy to say that I was invited as the special guest of E.L.F. to an exclusive event that was held by E.L.F. Cosmetics and American Laser Centers - The Summer Beauty Boost!
I was so happy to have been invited and absolutely honored to be there as the special guest of E.L.F. I am a huge fan of EyesLipsFace and I have always been! (Even before the studio & mineral line! I was an ELF-aholic when they only offered the $1 products!)

The event was held at the American Laser Center at one of their ritzy Manhattan locations. It was lovely!! There were many special guest speakers who educated everyone about their products & services and spoke to everyone there and answered any questions that we had. The event was very informative and I learned a lot! Besides all of the guest speakers and information, there was a huge table of delicious hors d'oeuvres, food & wine. Also, each guest received an amazing gift bag, filled with all types of different products! I LOVE IT :)

I am so thankful to have been invited & to have been so lucky to learn from and in the presence of such amazing people. All in all, I had a wonderful time, and I met some absolutely incredible people! (see below!)

Me & Achelle Dunaway - Creative Director of E.L.F. Cosmetics
Achelle is a makeup artist & the creative director of E.L.F. Cosmetics. Besides being a tall gorgeous blonde, Achelle is such a sweetheart and really has a true passion for what she does! She was a wonderful host of the Summer Beauty Boost Event and welcomed me right away. She was very fun & easy to speak to and I loved hanging out with her! She has a happy, bubbly personality, a great fashion sense and an even better taste in makeup! ;)

Me & Derek Warburton - Lifestyle & fashion guru - Derek Loves Shopping!Derek is a famous lifestyle guru & has a very popular website - Derek Loves Shopping (which I adore & read all the time! I bought my black sequined clutch because of him!). He was the life of the party, was perfectly dressed (and accessorized, of course!), and obviously FABULOUS! (Its not a coincidence that "Fabulous" is his middle name!) He was very fun to talk to and to hang out with. Plus - I learned all the hottest new summer trends from him!

Achelle & Derek are not only all about beauty & fashion, but they also love to do good and help others. Achelle & Derek teamed up together and E.L.F. cosmetics is the new beauty sponsor of the Bottomless Closet and they also work together with Housing Works. They are such inspirations ♥ I love them both :)

That was definitely a night I will never forget!

Gorgeous Girls Wear Gorgeous Curls ; )


Every time I style my hair like this, I get tons of compliments!
Along with those compliments are other girls asking me how did my hair like that, because they wanted to try it out for themselves.

I think almost everyone is a fan of gorgeous flowing curls, but not everyone knows how to style them for themselves! Yes, it can take a while to do (especially if you have thick & very long hair like mine!!) but let me tell you - it is worth it!! The end result is always fabulous and sexy.

Comment on this entry & let me know if you would like to see a tutorial on my youtube channel (CLICK HERE FOR MY BEAUTY CHANNEL ♥) for this glamorous hair style!

Spring Trend : Fuchsia Lips!

I've always been the girl who's not afraid to wear a bright pink lipstick on a daily basis.
I love the way a gorgeous, bright pink lip looks against my olive completion & my long black locks. Its a look that most girls would shy away from, but me - I love it.

A while ago, I went out shopping for the new perfect lipstick for my birthday dinner.
I knew I didn't want to wear my signature bright pink lip, or go for the classic chanel red.

I knew I wanted something bright, outrageous and gorgeous -just like me (hahaha just teasing!!)
then I found exactly what I was looking for...

I bought this lipstick - Miliani lipstick in Rose Hip - wore it that night and received tons of compliments! When I shared my birthday dinner photos with everyone, I received even more compliments and tons of people wanted to know which lipstick it was!

I absolutely adore this lipstick. It goes on very smooth, lasts a very long time, only cost about $4 (or even less?!) and the color is incredible! Perfect if you want to follow the spring trend of a hot fuchsia lip!

Are you loving this hot spring trend as much as I am?
