Easter Eggs & Polka Dotz

This is the outfit I wore to my family Easter dinner. It was overcast that day annnd raining! The bright spring dress i was gonna wear really didn’t fit the cold cozy rainy day weather, so i wanted the comfort of an over-sized comfy sweater but still be somewhat dressy and cutesy. Here’s my last minute look for Easter:)

A Fairytale Masquerade

Masquerade makeup

Masquerade Makeup

Masquerade Makeup

Its October!! Which means fall and leaves and pumpkins and halloweeennn! What I really like most about Halloween is the excuse to dress up & make believe as much as we want regardless of age. So for me as a makeup artist, its sucha fun time for me to go all out with makeup artistry for friends and family.

I again used my  beautiful friend Debbie as a model to create this “Faitytale Masquerade”. I used a really pretty shimmery blue eyeshadow around her eyes because for some reason blue looks really neat with brown eyes. Then I had it fade to a beautiful purple, the reason really was because I couldn’t decide whether to make a blue mask or purple mask…so i just did both!

And of course, rhinestones! I can’t resist them. It is fairytale-ish so sparkle is a given 🙂

I have some more mask designs in my mind so i might do a few more so keep checking in!

Also, I have a ton more pictures on my facebook page of other looks I’ve done so if you’re up for it, become a fan and like my page! www.facebook.com/OliviaCmakeup

Debbie’s Makeover

makeover, hair, makeup, fashionLayers

Debbie’s hair had grown very long from an old A-line. For a new style, I evened up her hair line, gave her lots of layers, and added face-framing layers starting a little below her jaw. She does have a lot…a lot of hair, I wanted to remove bulk and weight from the back of her hair but without thinning the hair. So rather than using thinning shears, I used a new technique I learned using the regular shears I had and it came out perfect.

After the haircut, I gave her a glossing treatment to soften and add tremendous shine to her locks. After the final styling of her hair, we moved on to makeup and fashion styling. She has beautiful brown eyes, so used neutral colors on her upper lid and to bring out her color I used a deep purple to line her lower lid. To brighten up the look, i used a mango colored lip gloss.

She looks amazing, definitely one of my favorite makeovers 🙂

Jenny’s Glam Baby Shower

Complete Makeover and Styling

It’s A BOY! This is my cousin Jenny expecting her first baby this September. I glammed her up with some wavy curls to her hair, simple makeup but with a little smokey eye, and coupled her elegant black maxi dress with gold accessories. The gold cuff and beautiful gold earrings were enough of a statement to keep the jewelry on the minimal side, so I didn’t add a necklace or rings. I think its the perfect amount of jewelry for this particular maxi dress. She looks gorgeous and glamorous 🙂

Hair Bow

Hairbow, Lissette Cannizzaro

This is my beautiful sister-in-law Lissette modeling a really fun up do I was working on. This is currently one of my favorite up do’s! Its pretty easy to create and its just darn cute. Of course, I had to add some kind of sparkle to it. I really thought tiny rhinestones throughout the bow would be just perfect but i didn’t have any hair clips for that. Instead, I applied small dots of silver-glitter puff paint on the ends of the bobby pins and it gave the same effect as rhinestones.

For the makeup I wanted to keep it in the same color scheme as the hair-bow using black and silvers. But to keep it from being to dark all around, I used a bright pink lip color that had little flecks a glitter in it as well. It gives the whole look just the right pop of color.

Leoparrrd Eyes

Leopard Print Makeup

Leopard print eyes for my friend Juvina. I used a matte terracotta eyeshadow on the lid and a peachy coral in the crease. I drew the spots using an eyeliner pen making a messy “C” shape. I finished the look by filling in the spots using glittery-gold liquid eyeliner and a set of false lashes.
