We decided to do a 2-in-1 how to for a vampire look! The beginning half is for those of you who truly want to frighten your friends on Halloween, and towards the end is a more glam version. Please excuse my hands, I got a henna tattoo at a friends wedding party. Onto the look!
SCARY VAMPIRE LOOK
Step 1: We need a blank canvas for this look so apply our Flawless Finish Foundation in a shade lighter than your natural skin tone for that 'dead' look.
Step 3: Using our new Long Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow in 'Silver' apply that to the lid for some sparkle.
Step 4: Apply our Liquid Eyeliner in 'Black' to the lid and extend a wing outwards.
Step 5: Apply our Mineral Infused Mascara to lashes.
Step 6: Using our Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow in 'What's Your Name' and an Angled Contour Brush, create dark circles under the eyes.
Step 7: To deepen those tired looking eyes, use the same brush with our Baked Eyeshadow in 'Burnt Plum' closer to the lash line.
Step 8: Using the Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow in 'What's Your Name' and our new essentials Powder Brush, contour the cheekbones.
Step 9: Using our Lipstick in 'Fearless' paint just the insides of the lips so that it looks like you just sucked some ones blood ;)
Step 10: Apply our False Eyelashes for some added drama.
Step 11: Apply Cream Eyeliner in 'Black' to the lower lash line.
Step 12: Apply Mascara to the lower lashes.
Step 13: Finish off the scary look with some defined brows. We used our Eyebrow Kit in 'Dark'.
Which look will YOU try?

Step 3: Bring the color up in to the crease and blend.
Step 4: Line the lips with our Lip Liner & Blending Brush in 'Wine'.
Step 5: Fill in the lips with our Lipstick in 'Fearless'. Viola!
Whats Your Favorite Feel Sexier Product?Whats Your Favorite Feel Sexier Product?

Nothing makes me feel sexier than having really, really smooth skin. Well, having smooth skin, sipping anejo tequila on the rocks and wearing either a low-cut blouse or a short skirt, though not both at the same time. Oh, and the ten pounds I just lost.
Of all of the above, smooth skin is actually the cheapest and easiest to get. And I can tell you how in just two words: exfoliating gloves.
A few years ago, I saw exfoliating gloves in my local drugstore and bought them, took them home and tried them. I was really impressed with the results, particularly on my legs, arms and yes, on my ass. And I’ve been using them ever since. One of my friends, who came to visit me and tried the gloves when she was using my shower, was actually offended that I hadn’t shared this knowledge with her.
The gloves are inexpensive (less than $10.00 a pair), are easy to use (one size fits all) and produce really phenomenal results. The gloves work by removing the surface layer of dead cells so that the new, pretty skin is exposed. I wouldn’t use them on sensitive skin like your face or neck because they are too abrading. And I’ve found that I get the best results by using them with either a moisturizing soap or body wash and then applying lotion right after my shower.
I use the gloves a couple of times a week, especially on date night with my husband. And he notices. Which leads to more physical contact because who doesn’t want to touch smooth skin? And more physical contact leads to…. Well, you see where I’m going with this.
So, I’ve shared with you my favorite make-me-feel-sexier product. But I can always use a little more sexiness in my life. Can’t you?
What’s your favorite make-you-feel-sexier product? Don’t hold out on me!
