New Year, New Beauty

The ArtBelles with FIERCE Master Make-up Artist Yolanda Aguayo! She beat my face, right?! 🙂
Happy New Year, y’all!!!! We are so blessed to have made it through another year. *does a quick happy dance* Yes, honey!!!! We are excited to see what 2013 has in store for a belle and YOU. How did you spend your NYE? The sis and I headed to Midtown to mingle and get pampered at our sweet friend LaToya’s Beauty Escape Makeup Bar. Pop-up beauty bars are the new “it” happenings and you know I love makeup so I was all in. Guests were treated to tasty small bites, foot/back/neck massages, cocktails (they had a Georgia peach one that was the, makeup applications, and more. This was the perfect event to start NYE off in style. There were plenty of belles there to have a great time before heading to church, a club, or the bed to bring the new year in. With makeup:

We came with our naked faces, fierce heels (and bags) to bring in the new year right! BEMB didn’t disappoint and is why we LOVE our new city–there’s ALWAYS something to do. What Shermika and I loved the most is that there were vendors selling super cute products that we can’t wait to share. The necklace I rocked was bought from a vendor by the name of Purty. Monica, the owner, is the sweetest belle so you know we had to shop with her (follow her on twitter). BEMB always host these pop-up beauty bar events, so be sure to follow them to stay in the know!! Check out my necklace below along with our other fab photos:

Be Spoiled Natural Body Products smelled divine & the owner was really sweet!

Here are the makeup tips I promised:
WHO is this chick?! Love it!

  • Choose a skin care regime that fits your schedule and stick with it
  • If you’ve never tried lashes try them (I did)! Practice makes perfect, so, start with cheaper lashes and then work your way up to more expensive ones
  • Eye shadow should be patted on the lid and then blended well
  • The 5 essential makeup brushes all you belles should have from Mac: #224, #190, #303, #109, #212
  • If you have thin eye brows (like me–shaved them off as a kid and the rest is history. LOL!) use a thin pencil to fill in and concealer to create an arch
Again, HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope you get all that you wish for and MORE. This is a new year of beauty and friends. Whether changing your outside or inside beauty–make it fab!
Love ya & thanks so much to all of our fab readers/viewers. We thank each and EVERY one of you. Cheers to 2013!!!!!!!!

  1. Happy New Year ladies!! This looks like so much fun! I kept it very low key since Lar had just left the day before to go back to Scotland (sniffle, sniffle) and just hung out with my bf and two close friends. Not nearly as glamorous as your gorgeous make overs, but just what I needed!
