Makeup Monday: Looks from the 2012 Billboard Awards!

Happy Makeup Monday Beauties! 

     The celebs pulled out all the stops for the 2012 Billboard Awards. Their hair and makeup crews certainly delivered. Let's take a closer look!

Although big hair seemed to be the trend, the beautiful Taylor Swift went a different direction and traded her signature curls and princess makeup for a sleek style and sexy smokey eye makeup. I like it! Taylor's showing some diversity and its alluring to say the least. 

Brandy is making a comeback in a big way! Her dramatic blue eye makeup and voluminous mane of kinky curls is stunning combination.

Katy Perry was a purple princess. I love how its glam with a little goth. I got the inside scoop that her lipstick was Lancome Le Lipstique LipColouring Stick in 
Portelle and Rouge in Love Lipcolor in Fiery Attitude. Love it! 

Alicia Keys had my favorite look of the night. Her beautiful elegant updo was just gorgeous paired with her berry lipstick. Timeless glamour and class. 

Zoey D is absolutely adorable rocking the orange lip trend! 

Miley Cyrus was just chic and sexy all around. Teased hair and flawless bombshell makeup! You can't go wrong with that. 

In love with Nelly Furtdao's mermaid eyes.

My favorite thing about the red carpet is the beauty inspiration I can practice at home! Who had your favorite look of the night beauties? Tweet me @LauraLoveBeauty and let's discuss it!

Makeup Monday:Vacation Must-Haves!

                                               Happy Makeup Monday Beauties!

                                           Just got back from the beautiful South Beach in Miami, and I thought I'd share what products really served me well. 

Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick

Wore a spicy little red dress to a party and wanted an equally spicy red lip to go with it, so I tired Kat Von D's liquid lipstick in Oultaw. Not only did I get compliments all night, but when I came in about 6am and (I'm so ashamed to admit) fell asleep with my makeup on, this color was still there bold and bright as ever the next day! I'm officially a fan.

Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Mist OMG!! I can't even put into words how much I love this product. Just a light spray mist and your beautifully bronzed. I was told "Wow, your skin looks flawless". It's perfect for day and night use with SPF 10 to protect you in those sunny vacation spots. I sprayed a little on my shoulders and legs to get that extra glow. I love the finish. It's just glamorous and gorgeous. 

 Smashbox’s Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Foundation with SPF10. I love how it evens out my skin tone and I always feel camera ready.  Studio Skin is so light it almost feels like a tinted moisturizer but with full coverage. The first day I wore it I got several compliments on how great my skin looked and when I told my girlfriend’s it was the foundation they all thought I wasn’t wearing any.  It looked very natural on my skin.  It did last all day and I was walking around all day in Miami weather! 

Ok, not makeup, but I took Escada Island Kiss along without really trying it first. It just screams "vacation" at first glance. However, it turned out to be an excellent choice! It's a provocative floral, fruity mix with a hint of sandalwood and musk. It was long-lasting, but subtle. Also, got several compliments from strangers :)

My cousin fell in love with this product in Miami, and it's not hard to see why! Carol's Daughter Macadamia Hold & Control Smoother not only smells great, but it keeps you frizz-free even in humidity. Edges? Fly-aways? Lays em all right down! I love using it to wear a sleek ponytail or a top-knot. Good stuff. 

So glad I tried some new things! Well Beauties, these products were definitely my heroes on vacation. I love to here what yours are! Tweet me @LauraLoveBeauty or email me at

Makeup Monday: MAKEUPFOREVER'S new & improved aqua eyes!

Eye look using MakeupForever's new collection!
Happy Makeup Monday Beauties!

  It's cold and rainy today on the east coast, so I was lucky to get some bright color in my life. I got to play with MakeupForever's new and improved Aqua Eyes collection coming to Sephora in May!

As you can see from my look, I loved the purple and yellow shades, However, there are many bright summer shades to choose from.

 Aqua eyes has been a fan fav for sometime, but MUFE made the formulas even better. These shadows still have the same great waterproof staying power, with a creamier, softer texture less likely to dry up and crease. Beautytip: Make sure to keep the tops on your cream shadows and color pencils to avoid them drying out, contracting bacteria, and preserve the color pigment. 

Even more exciting then new  colors and formula in Aqua Eye creams is that MUFE is also releasing Aqua Eye Shadow Pencils! These jumbo pencils can be used to apply color right to the lid and under the eyes. One of the artist demonstrated a 3 step smokey eye using 3 colors that was simply gorgeous! The Shadow pencils come in a wide range of natural/neutral colors and can be combined with the cream shadows for an amazing affect!

The new shade for Pantone & Sephora's Color of the Year, Tangerine Tango 

Here are some swatches of the summer shades! So gorgeous!Swatches from the left: Eye Shadow in #71, Eye Shadow in #58, Aqua Cream in #10, Aqua Cream in #18, Star Powder in #956, Rouge Artist Intense in #15, Aqua Eyes in #21 ($18), Aqua Liner in #6 and Lab Shine in #M4; 

Those awesome shadow pencils will be $20, and even though there are new colors and a new texture of the cream shadows they will remain at $16. I've had my MUFE look on for about 6 hours now and no creasing! 

   Love the intensity and blendability of these creams! 

Well Beauties, I love sharing the inside scoop with  you! Look for these products in the middle of May! Tweet  me your #MakeupMonday tips  @LauraLoveBeauty on Twitter and Have a Great Week! 

Always Be Beautiful~XOXOXOXO Laura Love
