Hey, darlings! I know I have been gone for ALMOST a month, but I’m back! It was really rough working a full time, stressful , time-consuming job and still get the luxury to write about things that interest me. Now that I’m back, let’s just talk about what really matters. – Selena!

First off, can we address the fact that it’s been 21 years since she’s passed?! I feel like it was yesterday. Although I was 2, I definitely remember seeing it on the TV and how stunned by grandmother was. It is a memory that will be engrained in my mind forever.

Anyway, MAC has finally given us a sneak peek of what’s to come in the Selena Collection. Now, I don’t give a damn if I have all the shade that are released in the collection, I’m buying it. NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. Selena is my idol. I have to give my support. Plus, the colors are inspired by shades that she would wear on and off stage. Who doesn’t wanna wear a Selena-inspired lipstick?! I sure as hell do. Therefore, when it hits counters this October, I’ll be first in line. ❤

Best & Worst Dressed: The Oscars 2016

Hello, dears! That magical time is upon us once again. It’s time for me to share who made the cut on my best-dressed list and who landed themselves on my worst-dressed list. Here we go…

Best Dressed

rachel-mcadams-4f90f72e-1950-4eb8-ab73-7bea8598fdf3

Rachel McAdams (via usmagazine.com)

I am in LOVE with this shade of green which is probably why I’m in love with this look. The dress isn’t fancy, but the slit, train, and color make it stunning! This is definitely my favorite look from last night.

 

margot-robbie-85d238ea-05cc-41a0-b16e-03d963e213fc

Margot Robbie (via usmagazine.com)

Margot Robbie was a golden goddess last night. She reminded you of an actual Oscar. Point blank.

 

chrissy-teigen-43bc48cf-aac0-42cb-b73c-1917e3622afb

Chrissy Teigen (via usmagazine.com)

There are very few times that Chrissy Teigen misses the mark on the red carpet. She’s been on my best-dressed list plenty of times. Therefore, I didn’t expect any less during her pregnancy. I love red and nude together and the fit is perfect on her. Gorgeous!

 

charlize-theron-64de29a2-49bd-4b69-a365-af1706f1992b

Charlize Theron (via usmagazine.com)

Charlize Theron is another MVP on my best-dressed lists. She’s been on them quite frequently. Charlize just knows how to do sexy and very well might I add.

 

jennifer-lawerence-2fcf2cc6-0916-4c3e-a3bb-e80b7b78ecaf

Jennifer Lawrence (via usmagazine.com)

Not only am I fan of red and nude, but there is truly nothing like black and nude paired together. J.Law made me love the combo even more when she stepped out on the red carpet in this beauty.

 

priyanka-chopra-de0d04e5-2fec-4bc5-8f9e-c1a8d03622a8

Priyanka Chopra (via usmagazine.com)

This look speaks for its damn self! It’s gorgeous. It’s stunning. It’s elegant. It’s everything.

 

Worst Dressed

heidi-klum-2cb7ce20-7438-4b62-88c0-4ec656051144

Heidi Klum (via usmagazine.com)

For someone who has been in fashion for a while, Heidi Klum just disappoints me! I wouldn’t have a problem with this if the sleeve was gone. The sleeve just makes the whole ensemble look wrong on her. This is just not for you, Heidi.

 

cate-blanchett-221574f0-c5c7-4412-8b79-9d60ef21e0bb

Cate Blanchett (via usmagazine.com)

If you guys have been subscribed to me for a while, you know I despise things that are too busy. The color is very pretty, but all these flowers popping out aren’t for me. Flowers on the bodice area alone would’ve been sufficient in my opinion.

 

alicia-vikander-fffdf84a-927d-474b-8095-fbdd36e08dd9

Alicia Vikander (via usmagazine.com)

I saw a lot of people compare this look to Belle from Beauty and the Beast. However, the sequins make the gown look kinda cheap. So, this was a miss in my book.

 

brie-larson-31463463-20da-4e5b-bc90-629b0e5814b5

Brie Larson (via usmagazine.com)

I don’t know what it is exactly, but this dress looks flimsy to me. It looks cheap and probably more so because of the belt. I feel like it’s something a teen on a low budget would buy for prom. Then again, that’s just me!

 

whoopi-goldberg-db092cd5-0630-40c6-a9ff-a5a8644cf984

Whoopi Goldberg (via usmagazine.com)

Whoopi. Come on, man! This gown is DEFINITELY not for her. She could’ve done so much better, but she chose not to. This dress makes her look really uncomfortable.

Best Dressed

Bella Hadid (via popsugar.com)

Sleek and sexy – Bella Hadid slayed her red carpet look. She looked stunning.

Demi Lovato (via popsugar.com)

I’m definitely down for this blazer/dress thing she got going on. Let me not forget to mention that she KILLED IT on stage with her Lionel Richie tribute.

Chrissy was a vision in white with her baby bump and pregnancy glow to match.

Ellie was a BEAUTY! Her look was soft yet gorgeous.

Serayah (via glamour.com)

I’m just in love with this color which is probably why I love the gown so much.

Joy Villa (via eonline.com)

I hated her construction net look last year and I hate her look this year.

tove-lo-84549b42-25b1-4511-9927-f09282a5c6861

Tove Lo (via usmagazine.com)

Something is off about this for me. Maybe it’s the lace in the mid-drift area but I don’t know. It’s not my favorite.

janelle-mone-9e21b47d-7e69-4f46-a331-6cea0a808f47

Janelle Monae (via usmagazine.com

I would’ve been down for the whole look if it wasn’t for the skirt.

rs_634x1024-160215154545-634-dencia-hello-kitty-2016-grammy-awards-arrivals-21516

Dencia (via eonline.com)

I’m pretty sure she’s been on my worst dressed before. I’m all down for uniqueness but IT’S THE GRAMMY’S. Come on.

Favorite Beauty Icons

Hey, dolls! Let’s talk makeup and those who slay putting it on. I definitely did a post like this way back when I first started blogging. However, it was celebrity focused. Since then, I’ve realized there are so many beautiful women out there who slay in the beauty world. They can be celebrities or not. So, I wanted to share with you guys my all-time favorite beauty icons which are women whose makeup I love all day every day. These are the ones I get my inspiration from.

Lora Arellano (via howloved.com)

If you guys don’t know this badass chick, get with the program! She is one the boss ladies at Melt Cosmetics and Rihanna’s makeup artist. This woman is incredibly talented and creative with everything she does. Whether she is doing full glam or something light, she is just pure gorgeousness. Her overall swag is just…. BOSS.

Raye Boyce (via fashionkulture.com)

One thing that I’ve always loved about Raye is that her natural beauty always shines through her makeup. Also, she all these big features and knows how to work them. Big hair, big brows, big eyes, big lips, etc. She’s just plain beautiful. Her makeup looks are always perfect. She mostly goes natural-esque but when she goes all out..it’s stunning! If I had to replicate someone’s makeup looks every day for the rest of my life, it would be hers.

 

zoesaldanainversace2015oscars

Zoe Saldana (via glamazonsblog.com)

Zoe Saldana’s makeup is always classic. She doesn’t do full glam. She’s more of a natural glam goddess and that’s my favorite type. Don’t get me wrong, though! I do love some bold colors from time to time. However, I’m more of a fan of this.

Hit or Miss: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

 

(via giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com)

Hey beauties! Let’s talk foundation…EXPENSIVE FOUNDATION.

Last week, I picked up a sample of the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation at a Sephora near my job. I had no clue Sephora even sold Armani products, but I guess some do. Anyway, I’ve been dying to buy a high end foundation for a while now. So, I’ve been trying out a lot of samples. However, I’ve been wanting to try this one out for a long while and finally I have. I picked up shade #8 which is similar to MAC’s NC44.

The Giorgio Armani website states, “Luminous Silk foundation features an exclusive Micro-fil technology. So weightless, it redefines foundation. Its hydrating fluid glides on seamlessly with a silky texture and all-day, buildable coverage. For all skin types”. It sells for $62 – I know it’s a splurge! But it’s WORTH IT! This foundation is definitely a HIT! I used it with my Becca primer and my face looks FLAWLESS. It’s so lightweight with buildable coverage. I don’t feel like I have makeup on. The texture is just silky and beautiful! The only thing is that is smells like a dry erase marker but I actually like that smell. If you don’t then maybe that’s a con for you LOL. I have oily skin and I get picky about foundation because they either get oily within hours or just don’t do it for me. This foundation is probably my holy grail, literally! I definitely recommend it to anyone! So if you have the money, splurge on this magic in a bottle!

Solange Knowles Slays At Her Wedding

(via vogue.com)

Hey lovelies! This is how you really break the internet!

Congrats to Solange Knowles on her marriage to Alan Ferguson! Not only did she slay in all of her 5 wedding day looks, but she managed to break the internet without showing off her vagina to the free world 😉

Her all-white wedding has to me my favorite celebrity wedding of all time. Sure, plenty people do an all white themed wedding but not like the Knowles family…

(via theybf.com)

It’s unique, classy, and just fierce. Feel free to disagree with me but you’re still wrong!

(via popsugar.com)

Once again congrats to the newlyweds ❤
