Stay warm and bright!

Just because it's a little cold and gloomy outside doesn't mean you have to dress in dark colors. The always stylish, Lauren, shows us how to accessorize with colors that are typically associated with spring even when winter is fast approaching.
Take her tip and go for a bright color that contrasts with your hair, eyes and skin. Her rich red hues and shimmery nude lips look gorgeous next to turquoise!

Get Your Head in the Game, Girls!

Everyone loves football! Some just love it for different reasons than others. In my opinion, glitter always helps your team win! Print out your teams logo and cut it out to make a stencil. Apply eyelash glue to your skin using the stencil as your guide, then sprinkle glitter in your team's colors over the glue. Remove stencil and voila! 
University of Arizona Wildcat's fans are ahead of the game!

Black Swan was another popular costume this year.... and there was so much AMAZING eye makeup!

El Dia De Los Muertos

I was surprised to see how popular the Mexican holiday, Day of the Dead, was this year. Traditionally, women paint their faces white and decorate to look like skulls. I decided to take on the challenge, but make it a little less intense than the traditional Dia de los Muertos makeup. I skipped the white face and the painted chin and nose, but really exaggerated the eyes. I also made my own hair accessory with black lace, two large red roses and a bedazzled skull clip.

The girl to my left did an amazing job with more of the traditional makeup and used blue instead of red

-Use a hot glue gun to make hair accessory, it is a lot less time consuming than sewing, and works just as well
-Use water based face makeup instead of oil or cream based because it dries then does not smudge or rub off on anything
