Bridal Looks for Spring

The Bernardo Winery Faire turned out to be a huge success for both Chandra and I. We had a great time with the beautiful models in the fashion show and meeting so many brides-to-be!

They were some amazing vendors too. It made me want to re-do my wedding again. [sigh] I love meeting and seeing people so passionate about their business.

Artists at work! Collaborating on what bridal looks we want to create.

The gorgeous Alisa. She has been a professional model for years and is truly stunning.

For Alisa, Chandra wanted to create a clean, yet elegant, look for her.


Bamboo (M.A.C.) in the crease for a pop of color

Vanilla w/ Grain (M.A.C.) packed on the lid for a limited sheen (mature eyes should stay away from too much shimmer. It can increase the look of fine lines/wrinkles)

False lashes, no eyeliner to bring out her eyes


Blushbaby (M.A.C.)


Whirl lipliner filled in with Snob lipgloss (both M.A.C.)


Makeup Forever HD Foundation

The beautiful Kiersten! She actually was married at the winery and is about to celebrate her 1st anniversary.

Kiersten’s skin is flawless! [like, to die for ah-mazing]

She is South African (loved her accent) and happens to also be a professional ballerina.

The look I created for her was inspired by Spring and more of a fresh face look. I wanted to play up her porcelain skin.


Naked Lunch (M.A.C.) all over the lid & inner corner (tear duct)

Samoa Silk in the crease for a pop of color

Soft Brown (M.A.C.) lightly on the outer crease for   subtle definition &

on the lower lash line

Dipdown Fluidline Eyeliner (M.A.C)

Red Cherry #747S Lashes


Peaches with Fleur Power  (M.A.C.)


Staunchly Stylish lipliner (filled in the entire lip) with Razzle Dazzler lipgloss (M.A.C.)

The venue is so charming and quaint! I was in complete awe over the grounds and lush landscape. The rustic ambiance is a perfect backdrop for any San Diego Style wedding.

Urban Decay’s NAKED Collection

Urban Decay’s original NAKED + NAKED2 had a baby=


loveleigh beauty-naked basic

Unless you’ve been living in solitary confinement, you’ve heard [or at least own one] of Urban Decay’s best selling NAKED eyeshadow palette’s.

If you don’t, then you’re totally missing out.

Seriously they are amaze.

loveleigh beauty-naked collection
The NAKED collection: NAKED, NAKED 2, NAKED Basics & NAKED polishes

In the last two years, Urban Decay has taken the cosmetic world by storm demanding full attention to their most coveted palette’s.

To capitalize on their original NAKED success and popularity, Urban Decay released NAKED Basic; to satisfy those of us that desire sultry, matte-finish shadows.

loveleighbeauty-naked basic-3
Venus / Foxy / Walk of Shame / Naked 2 / Faint / Crave

+Venus:  satin, creamy white with sheen

+Foxy:  matte, peachy beige

+Walk of Shame:  matte, pinky beige

+Naked 2:  matte, soft taupe, with a subtle brownish grey undertone

+Faint:  matte, warm medium dark-brown

+Crave:  matte, black-brown

Created to be a matte companion to NAKED, it is truly a must-have addition to your beauty arsenal. If you’re a fan of basic neutrals, like minimal without a bunch of frills, then this palette is absolutely for you.

You’re not getting jipped either-each shadow is full-sized. The textures are wonderfully silky, smooth, and densely pigmented for true color payoff. The packaging is sleek and lightweight, making it easy to carry in your purse or travel.


The original NAKED palette set the stakes pretty high as it was [and still is] my fav palette.

Palette colors include:

+Virgin: shimmery, nudish-beige. {It is very light}

+Sin: frost, champagne color with a pinkish undertone

+Naked: matte, medium beige-y brown.

+Sidecar: shimmery, cocoa bronze brown with a golden sparkle

+Buck: matte, darker beige-y brown. {very similar to naked}

+Half Baked: metallic, neutral gold {one of my favs!}

+Smog: medium dark bronze with a gilded bronze sheen

+Dark Horse: chocolate brown with beautiful bronze shimmer

+Toasted: shimmery, dark pinky-brown

+Hustle: soft shimmer, dark chocolate brown with a plum undertone

+Creep: dark blue-black with light silver shimmer

+Gunmetal: metallic, gunmetal grey with silver glitter {the best color ever!}

The palette also comes with their amazing duo 24/7 eye-pencil in Zero [creamy, blackest black] and Whiskey [creamy, rich brown].


When NAKED 2 launched last year, it totally lived up to my expectations and I immediately became obsessed. I find myself always going back and forth between the two.


NAKED 2 features five new shades, as well as six popular shades form Urban Decay’s core line of eyeshadows. Only one shadow is found in both palette’s.

NAKED 2 loveleigh beauty

+Foxy: matte, cream color

+Half-Baked: metallic, neutral gold [found in Naked1]

+Bootycall: satin, champagne color (very similar to Virgin from Naked 1, but peachier)

+Chopper: metallic, rose gold with silver micro glitters

+Tease: matte, taupe with purple undertones

+Snakebite:  satin, deep bronze

+Suspect: satin, light taupe

+Pistol:  satin, warm steel grey

+Verve:  metallic, slightly pinky-grey

+YDK:  metallic, toasty taupe with coppery micro glitters

+Busted:  satin, plummy dark brown

Naked Polishes

Urban Decay made matching polishes to the original NAKED palette. Literally, each polish is exactly like the coordinating eyeshadow.

I will post different makeup looks I have created using all of these palettes. They are perfect for everyday, in the office, or a night on the town.

Which one is your fav?

Love, LL


Poudre Signae de Chanel

Over the holidays, I freelanced for Chanel and was able to play with new Spring 2013 Collection: Printemps Precieux De Chanel.

Printemps Precieux de Chanel is very feminine and flirty, named for the precious beauty of Spring. Said to be inspired by an old photograph with an “unusual yet sublime brooch set with amethysts and placed on rough fabric”, Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, Peter Philips created a whimsical collection of nude, pink and deep plum tones.

The whole line is so gorgeous; but I was immediately drawn to the highlighting powder. I literally had to pick myself up off the floor when I laid eyes on the stunning, limited-edition, Poudre Signae de Chanel.

The powder is definitely the “highlight” of the entire collection; as it is elegantly embossed with Chanel’s famous trademark.

Highlights of Poudre Signae:

+very sheer, with a subtle soft pink undertone, and is oh-so buttery soft

+the light-reflecting properties give that elusive glow to the skin

+adds the perfect amount of shimmer & luminosity  because it is so finely milled

+literally melts into your skin creating a flawless finish to any makeup look

+beautiful for all skin tones


Chanel’s Poudre Signae de Chanel illuminating powder is described as a soft pink; but I think it definitely has a warm, yet, subtle golden undertone to it.

It will truly brighten your skin and your day!

MAC’s Duo Fibre Brush or Chanel’s #7 brush are both excellent choices.

I use a duo fibre brush to apply. This allows for lightweight application and easy blending.

Below is a pic of one of my clients looking absolutely stunning. I used Chanel’s Poudre Signae as her highlight to create a flawless finish.

We wanted to create a sparkly-glam look with a pop of color. Chanel’s poudre signae added just the right amount of glam.




Braids, BUNS, Top Knots, Fishtails- Oh MY!

I’m so loving this hair trend right now! They are here to stay too.

We first saw the fishtail craze over the summer, and it isn’t going anywhere this Fall/Winter season either. {{Yay!!}} Seriously, a fishtail braid can work for any occasion: work, school, errands or even a hot date. It may look intricate, but I’m here to tell you it is so easy-peasy.

Don’t forget your cute dent-less hair tie!




Harper’s Bazaar recently featured an article on the rise of the “fun bun”. The top knot is a fall hairstyle that you can rock with any fashion style. We’ve seen adorable top knots on celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Nicole Richie, and Gwen Stefani. Each one staying true to their glam, boho, and rocker, fashion styles.

I’m obsessed! Why? Because they are so chic, stylish, a little edgy, and not to mention, so gorgeous! A hair-spiration!

For those of you with shorter hair styles, not to worry because you can easily add a clip-in extension, or two, to improvise. You can achieve a whole new look + still be a part of the fun.

Now remember, the idea is to create a look that is NOT precise. Once you’ve completed either look, use your fingers to pull each section of the braid out, or slightly tug on each side of the top knot to loosen. This will add life, texture, and overall visual appeal, to the look. Unless you’re a professional ballerina, that bun should not be perfect!

For all you mamas, we can’t forget about our little divas! I adjust the style accordingly. For my daughter, I regularly do side braids, heart braids, and cute little buns {<<—she is soo not a fan of buns, so bribery may be necessary ;)}

Outside french braid- starting at the top right side of head, wrapping around to form a pony tail on the opposite side.
Tight, side braid, only using a small section of hair. Add a bow or flower to complete the look.
My fav ❤

Here are some of my beautiful friends and their versions of the trend for hair-spiration and viewing pleasure:

Fun, right? Whatever your style is one of these will surely work for you. It gives us so many options to our everyday hair routine.

Please share with me some of your favs!

Love, LL
