All I ever have is five minutes. You can tell from my still damp hair in the above photo. 
Sometimes, most of the time, I don’t devote that much time putting my face on.

I’m beginning to favor more simple but still striking looks. A glimmer of deep silver shadow, a swipe of my favorite lip pencil, and tried and true mascara are my daily staples. The NARS lip pencil is amazing with a light, non-drying texture. It’s my 90 year old grandmother’s favorite pencil, too. For real. 

FOTD: These Golden Years





By now, none of y’all should be surprised to see me with red lips. It’s summer and I want to keep the makeup light and breezy but still have a little bit of flavor with my signature red pout. Red and gold are one of my favorite color combos, so here’s a staple look of mine.

FOTD: Vamp







On June 12th, I went downtown to a jewelry preview that was chock full of Stephanieisms — skulls, snakes, studs, gothy mermaids, mystical jewels. So my only choice was to vamp up my make up. And why not? It was definitely time to be saucy and sultry. One of the ways I up the drama factor is with some false eyelashes and these babies are only a $1 at Target. And they last! I buy the lashes in packs, for serious.

Wishlist Wednesday: Red Lipstick



I admit it: I am completely captivated by the allure of red lipstick. It’s sultry, the sassy dose of sensuality, and all with a slight nod to mystery and temptation. Oh yeah, and it makes me feel foxy whenever I wear it. The amount of times I’m photographed wearing various shades of red lipstick is either awesome or embarrassing.

Below is a list of my favorite reds that I’ve been using the past few years. I’m not putting up actual pictures of the products since most of the makeup swatches seem to be photoshopped onto the same tube of lipstick over and over again. Do you have a favorite lipstick color?

  1. Laura Mercier Creme Lipstick: Truly Red, $24
  2. NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil: Damned, $24
  3. NYX Black Label Lipstick in Brick, $7.50
  4. Shiseido Perfect Rouge: Salon, $25
  5. MAC Lipstick: Russian Red, $14.50
