Holiday Cheer

Wow, this year has gone by so quickly and the holiday season is already upon us. It’s my favorite time of the year with all of the food, festivities, spending time with family and having fun. During the Fall & Winter I wear a lot of vamp shades on my lips, deep berries, plums and purples but during the holiday season I noticed that I navigate more towards the berries, especially cranberry and raspberry shades. This is a simple look that I threw together to kick off the holiday season.

When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.

    I love that ensemble that you’re wearing. That lipstick and eyeshadow combination is fabulous. You can rock a vamoy lip.

    Did you say a simple look you “threw together”?! Smh – lol. Girl, you are looking like a Vogue cover! Beautiful photos and I am loving the cranberry lip and that Flushed blush on you.

      Lol Thank you so much. I always think that my looks are pretty safe and sometimes a little boring compared to all of these over the top looks I see.
