Happy New Year! I am currently in the plane headed to Florida to host the Kurdish Youth Festival this weekend. Can’t wait to meet some of you there! I hope you all had a fantastic New Years Eve celebration (I sure did!). I was looking through some of my 2013 selfies and decided to share my favorite lipsticks of 2013 that are definitely sticking around this year.
If you want your lips to look smooth and look “perfect” with your lipstick on, it’s all about the prep! Every night before bed, I always apply a deep moisturizing lip balm sleep with it on. It seriously keeps my lips nice and smooth the next day!
I rocked A LOT of fun lipstick shades last year. For a while, I was really into the vamp look! Let’s take look back and see some of my favorite makeup selfies and lipstick shades that I will definetly rock again in 2014.
Wearing: MAC lipstick in “Morange“
I love this bright orange lipstick from Mac! It’s perfect for the spring and summer seasons ahead. Mac’s lipsticks are rich and pigment (major plus!!) so you won’t need to re-apply over and over again.
Wearing Yves Saint Laurent in “Blood Red“
Meet the perfect red lipstick. YSL beauty is one of my favorite cosmetics line, hands down. I use their highlighter and it’s A-mazing! The lipsticks are highly pigmented and give your lips a radiant, satin finish. AKA it doesn’t get all dry and nappy! I usually apply this lipstick once in the day and then once again at night. That’s all you need- It lasts all day long!
Wearing Too Faced lipstick in “Nude Peach“
A nude lipstick is important to have! This nude shade I’m wearing from Too Faced cosmetics is my everyday go-to when I’m going for a more natural look. Their ‘La Creme’ lipsticks are so perfect because they are very rich in pigment and also a glossy coat to finish off your look. It’s like a lip gloss and lipstick all in one and I love it!
Wearing Wet ‘n Wild in “Black Orchid” (sold out) // (Try MAC “Rebel”)
Dark purple/plum lipstick shades can be very daring! At first I thought there was no way I’d rock a gothic lip. ha! I decided to try it out for fun and I’m so glad I did. The vamp lip was definitely my favorite lipstick trend this past year. I love it so much! I don’t plan on parting ways with this shade any time soon.
Which lipstick shade was your personal favorite?
Maxi Dress: Gypsy 05 (more colors!)
Jacket: Forever 21 (old)- shop similar
Scarf: Nordstrom (similar one here)
Bag: Urban Outfitters (n/a)
Boots: H&M (old)- similar pair
Necklace: Oxford Trunk
This fall, it’s been all about bohemian chic style (for me at least). If you thought maxi dresses can only be worn in the summer– Think again! I took the perfect summer maxi dress from Gyspy05 and spazzed it up a little to make it fall/winter appropriate. All you got to do is grab a cozy scarf, a faux leather jacket or fitted cardigan and wah-la! Your maxi went from summer time fine to fall sophisticated chic. What’s not to love? Also, what’s REALLY great about this look is you can take it from day to night by simply changing the shoes (black strapless heels would be my go-to).
Promo: 15% off at Gypsy05 with code SPAZMAG (limited time offer!)
P.S Makeup counts! The darker lipstick shade made this outfit look more fall-y. I’m wearing “Wild Orchid” by Wet ‘n Wild (available at any drug-store) and I keep wearing it over and over again. Love the color so much!

STYLE FILE: A Versatile Day or Night Outfit
A busy day only allows you to do so much with your time. I don’t know about you guys but surprisingly fashion is sometimes the last thing on my mind when I am trying to get all my day’s tasks accomplished. Trying to find a comfortable day outfit that I can also wear at night with the girls has almost become mission impossible. Let’s face it, the average person simply doesn’t have enough time in the day to put together a stylish outfit…let alone TWO! I have found it A LOT easier to sometimes put my outfits down before bed. Being the indecisive Libra that I am, I usually mix and match a few things before I settle. After years of trashing my room with clothing in search of the perfect outfit, I have sort of figured out what works and what doesn’t.
Keys to Daytime + Night Looks:
• Wedges- The perfect balance. You won’t look too dressy in the day or too under dressed at night. (Wedges are comfortable too because of the chunky heel!)
• Trousers- Trousers are the ultimate day + night time pant. For a stylish twist, look for funky patterns or bold colors.
•Messenger Bags- These hand-free bags are so amazing. You can run your errands in the day or dance the night away without dealing with the extra baggage.
• Bold Lipstick- Hot pink lips are fierce in the day or night. Not to mention, one of my new favorite accessories!
• Loosen up- A loose-fitted top is comfortable in the day and ravishing at night! Have fun up top by choosing bright colors/ unique prints. (Remember, if your top is too tight…it ain’t right!)
• Accessories- Totally optional but recommended! A bold ring at night or pair of sunglasses in the day can really top off your look.
