GipsyDharma.com - A New Found Love!

I came across a website called GipsyDharma.com and instantly found my new love! They sell leather fashions that give off a sexy Amazonian woman feel! My favorite products would have to be the knee-high and thigh high leather lace up boots. They are just gorgeous and come in a wide array of colors, patterns, and prints to suit all tastes. 

While I don't normally purchase items at their price point, this is one splurge I will be making come late summer into early fall. A girl has got to spend a little extra on herself every now and then right?

Liebster Award 2013


Most of you, like me, are probably wondering what the heck is a Liebster Award? 

Here's the rules on how this whole thing works:
1. Thank the blogger who presented you with the Liebster Award, and link back to his or her blog.
2. Answer the 11 questions from the nominator; list 11 random facts about yourself, and create 11 questions for your nominees.
3. Present the Liebster Award to 11 bloggers, who have blogs with 200 followers or less, whom you feel deserve to be noticed. Leave a comment on the blogs letting the owners know they have been chosen. (No tag backs.)
4. Upload the Liebster Award image to your blog.

That's it my lovelies! 

I was nominated by a wonderful blogger named Cella Paz on her blog For The Love Of Beauty (check our her blog asap if you haven't already!). Thank you Cella! 

She nominated me and I was curious, 1. Because I have never been nominated for any kind of online award ever and 2. Because I felt special to even be recognized in the blog world! 

So here goes my Liebster Award Q&A from Cella Paz of For The Love Of Beauty.

1. What is your favorite lipstick of all time, including discontinued? Wow that's a hard one, since I own more lipsticks than any one person ever should! LOL! I would say my fave would probably be the classic MAC Ruby Woo, but again I could never choose just one! 

2. What is your favorite foundation? L'Oreal True Match.

3. Who is your favorite Instagram make-up artist? Wow that's a hard one! I CAN NOT choose one no way! Love all those girls who pour their heart and soul into those amazing looks!

4. Who is your favorite YouTuber? Kandee Johnson!!! Other close 1st placer's would be: JLovesMAC, EmilyNoel83, and TymeTheInfamous.

5. What is your favorite cereal? Special K

6. Who is your style icon? Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez

7. What is your favorite vacation destination? I had the best time of my life in the Dominican Republic!

8. What is your favorite shampoo/conditioner? Pantene or Garnier Fructis

9. Which makeup brands do you think are over-rated? Sadly even though I own a bunch of it, I would have to say Smashbox. 

10. Which makeup brands do you think don't get enough credit? Wet N Wild and NYX Cosmetics.

11. What is your favorite beauty find under $5? Any of those Wet N Wild eyeshadow palettes! 


Question for my nominees:

1. What's your favorite bronzer?
2. What's your favorite overall makeup brand?
3. Do you use drugstore makeup? If so, what brand do you think has been the most overlooked?
4. What celebrity would you say you most look to for makeup looks/inspiration?
5. Who is your favorite blogger?
6. What is something about you that most people would never guess?
7. Do you have any other creative outlets you enjoy besides blogging? If so, what are they?
8. Favorite fashion trend at the moment?
9. Favorite piece of jewelry you wear often?
10. What is your "holy-grail" mascara?
11. You are stranded on a desert island and can only bring 3 makeup items; what would they be?

Pink/Magenta Lips For Fall?

When we think of the fall season we often think of earth tones, such as: Browns, Nudes, and Berry shades. Rarely would we ever think of Pinks or Magentas right? Well, according to makeup artist James Kaliardos of MAC, he created what he describes as makeup that “makes you win in life” for the Fall 2013 Diane von Furstenberg runway show.

This trend will no doubt carry over to this Fall 2013 and is sure to be a great look on all skin tones. Just look at these photos showcasing various different skin toned models and various depths of pink/magenta color from the runway show.


From fair to ebony skin tones, it looks amazing! Adding that gorgeous pop of color to what would have been an otherwise neutral look. 

Kaliardos filled in the entire lip using MAC's Chromagraphic Pencil in Process Magenta ($16 HERE), slightly exagerating the cupid's bow and going slightly outside the lowest part of the bottom lip. Then he dabbed on some lip conditioner for a moisturized finish. 

Don't have MAC's Chromagraphic Pencil in Process Magenta? Don't feel like spending the cash on it? Here are some drugstore options:
NYX Cosmetics - Slim Lip Pencil in "Bloom" $3.50 HERE
NYX Cosmetics - Slim Lip Pencil in "Pinky" $3.50 HERE
NYX Cosmetics - Slim Lip Pencil in "Fuchsia" $3.50 HERE
Rimmel - Lasting Finish Lipstick in "HeartBreaker $6.60 HERE
Revlon - ColorBurst Lipstick in "Fuchsia" $5.99 HERE
Rimmel - Colour Show Off Lipstick in "Shocking Pink" $3.81 HERE
NYX Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick in "Sweet Pink" $6 HERE
Or for a softer look: 
Loreal Colour Riche Caresse in "Velvety Fuchsia" $10 HERE

Hope this helps you all come this Fall 2013. What are some of your favorites that you will be using?

CharmJewel.com Hawaii Bangle Bracelet Review



CharmJewel.com 
Hawaii MultiLayer Gold Shiny Diamond Bangle Bracelet Set
$22 HERE

We all love bangle bracelet sets from discount shops, cheap boutiques, and a bunch of other places; right? But what always happens? They fade/discolor, they break, they crack, jewels come unglued, etc. It's annoying having to replace them every few weeks! 

This is where the bangle set above is different. It's alloy which still makes it affordable but it's also gold-plated! Which means no fading or nasty discoloration leaving your wrists green. Also, it's not flimsy like most of it's cheaper counterparts. No, it's solid but not heavy. Just the perfect amount of weight versus durability.

I know I am usually one to go for the cheaper look-alike's but with this style it's sure to last for seasons to come, so I am willing to spring the few extra bucks for something I can get a lot of use out of. 

Check it out and let me know what you ladies think!

MakeUpTutorials.Org Review


Makeuptutorials.org is a fresh new makeup tutorial site by a woman named Kecia Littman, an 11 year veteran of professional makeup artistry. Her passion for makeup stems from her early past when she performed as both a singer and dancer on the beautiful island of Hawaii. She continued her passion for makeup and turned it into what she describes as "turning her dream into an exciting career". You can see the passion in her tutorials as she guides you step by step using both words and photos. 

The website itself is very visually appealing. The soft neutral colors bring a sense of calm and serenity to the topic. It makes you feel very prim and pretty, just like her beautiful tutorials. I found the navagation of the site to be very straight forward and simple. I really loved the fact that she has both "Beginner" and "Advanced" sections that can cater to the newbie who just bought her first palette or the well-groomed veteran who just wants to find some new and interesting tips. There is also a section for skin care tips which is great, because I mean after all if the "base" isn't healthy then a flawless makeup application is just that much more difficult to achieve. On the site you can also find a product reviews section. Awesome reference if you're not so sure about that hot new product you want to try.

Overall I'd say Makeuptutorials.org is a site to bookmark and keep an eye on as Kecia continues to build it up! I can see this is one site that many girls will be looking to often. Also make sure to check out and "like" her Facebook page ➔ HERE to keep up to date on new posts and tell her Angel Lee sent you.  

Check out her tutorial on how to do a classic staple, the "Smokey Eye" look ➔ HERE.

Eyeshadow:
Burnt Orange 
Copper
Gray to Deep Gray
Metallic Blue-Purple
Deep Brown
Glitter (whether it be added sparkle pieces, as seen in bottom left photo, or actual shadow)

*Tip: When applying the silver liner try the technique shown in the photo above for a bold new look! Or take it one step further and fill in the area with a wash of color from the above listed shadows. 

Drugstore Options To Try:
L’Oreal HIP Chrome Eyeliner in Silver Lightning $10
Rimmel London ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner $4
Nyx Cosmetics Slide On Pencil in Golden Bronze $8
