Long Lasting Glam Makeup & OOTD – dpHUE + GIVEAWAY!

How fun was it to co-host dpHUE‘s event last week with Justin Anderson and his entourage! I loved meeting everyone and I’m deeply thankful for the opportunity along with my peeps/peers who were able to be there (I know it was far, far away for a lot of us, so I totally appreciate and understand whomever couldn’t be there!). Now let’s talk about hair, ootd and makeup please!!!!! I got my locks bleached out for Mr. Anderson and I told him that – now I blame it on Tony who told me his specialty was blondes and I just wanted to fit in!!! (ok, more like an excuse to go blonder during fall!!). – for makeup tutorial & to enter our giveaway see bottom of post –

My hair guru Kiem Voong took great care of me once again and even though it took me a couple of days to get used to the lighter hair – I had been darker for a long time – I’m totally owning it now!


I chose an all black look because I didn’t want to be super fancy wearing a dress neither under dressed (never!!). So bet on the black because it fits just about any occasion 🙂

The necklace linked is on sale and I LOVE it too. This bag is no longer available but I linked a few similar options. I would definitely chose a pop of color handbag to make the look happy and statement jewelry will also help. We love black but not funeral black 😉

We got to take a few snaps w Justin, and girls got free pro personal advice for their locks from. Oh and lots of hugs to!

I just HAD to take a pic with Tony. What a joy it was to work with you. You have amazing energy and I wish you guys nothing but the very best! Thank you for being so awesome to me!!!

Here’s to that tutorial I promised. I went easy on the eye for an everyday intense look. The day of the event I used the same technique but deeper on the eyes and applied Ardell false lashes in Wispies.

2 winners will be randomly selected for this giveaway. First place will get dpHUE color care shampoo + conditioner and deep conditioning Color Boosting GLOSS in Blonde ($78 retail value) and second place will get Pur Cosmetics 4-in-1 pressed mineral powder and  Chisel Brush ($53 retail value).

    Looks like it was a fun night!
    I’d be excited to win either prize – the dpHUE set would be perfect for my blonde color-treated hair and I’ve had my eye on the PUR pressed powder!

    • Reply Karina October 21, 2016 at 8:30 am

      Yes Kim, the shampoos are great for blondes! And the award winning powder foundation is also a crowd pleaser!! Good luck friend 😉

  • Reply Tava October 20, 2016 at 8:31 pm

    tough choice – I love pur and that brush looks fab but your hair was ALWAYS great but even better blonder so if dpHue can help me keep my balayage looking nearly as good they’ll have a customer for life!

    • Reply Karina October 21, 2016 at 8:28 am

      Oh Tava you seriously made my day! Thank you so much for the compliments, dpHUE is sure to leave your hair feeling soft and looking shiny and fresh! I love it!!! Good luck 🙂
