"Kisses Down Low" Inspired Makeup Tutorial + Natural Hair Ironed Blow Out

April 12, 2013
kisses down low
I am so in love with all the makeup looks seen in Kelly Rowland's, "Kisses Down Low" music video. She definitely had some fun playing around in color. As you can imagine makeup lovers and divas everywhere have been creating their own inspired-looks to compliment Kelly's. There have been a multitude of great (and not so great) looks based off the video.

I counted a total of 7 different facial styles expressed throughout the video... yes, I counted! I was super late watching the video but when I finally saw it, all I paid attention to were the makeup looks! So of course I had to do a tutorial sharing my skills as well! I must say, I really enjoyed playing "dress up" with my face.

It's always fun when it's never planned. FYI... the red hair look on Kelly really took me back to the Destiny Child days. Kelly has always been fun and adventurous with her hair.

The Birthday Celebration + Fancy Pants

Whoo! Another year has come and I was blessed to see another birthday. I turned 22 two weeks ago on March 27th! Let me just say that not only do I feel, NOT OLDER, but 22 looks good on me lol. I had a nice time. I was able to indulge in a two-day weekend away from "work" and super needy clients. Much needed...

the birthday celebration
My love and I spent the mid-week in Atlanta. Enjoying the atmosphere and lifestyle of the busy city. We stayed at The Artmore Hotel, a nice little secret in the heart of the Atlanta Art District. The hotel had a very modern day Picasso feel to it. The room was cozy and worthwhile... it had a lovely "bar" area with a small fridge filled with beverages and the "adult" drinks we love! The area aso had a photo of Audrey Hepburn in her role in "Breakfast At Tiffany's" in black and white.

That huge jacuzzi in the bathroom was a bonus. SCORE!

Of course, I took photos of my mini-getaway. I came a bit un-prepared because I failed to remember putting my memory card back into my camera. UGH! My babe was sure to capture everything for me though. Yay! Well, from arrival, to seeing my first sea-horse, to dinner fit for royalty, life was good that week. I didn't want the freedom to end. There's something wonderful about just being able to sit and enjoy life without stressing over the common worries.
