Puerto Rican Sunset

I miss going to Puerto Rico every summer. The warm winds, the salty ocean, the soft sand... it's a magical place that I haven't been to in more than a decade.

A few weeks ago, I was trolling the internet for makeup inspiration and came across this stunning photo on Flickr of a Puerto Rican Sunset. The colors just popped off the screen at me and took me back to many a magical sunset.

I think I am the MOST proud of this look than anything I've done in the past. Enjoy!

The inspiration:

Also! I'm thinking of doing a giveaway once I hit 100 followers. I'd love to hear any feedback you may have on what kind of competition to do and what you'd like to receive as a prize!


  1. Ah, I just bought those lashes! Can't wait to use them. This look is beautiful, I love the color combination. Totally takes me back to all the summers I used to spend with my grandparents in PR. The good ol' days!

    1. These lashes are fun and gorgeous, but a bit too small for my eyes lol. I'll have to fill in the corners with individual ones. They're SO beautiful though!!

    2. Oh crap, really!? Ah, I'm gonna have to see how they work out then! Thanks for the heads up hun!

  2. Wow this is amazing!! the colours are absolutely stunning and I'm in love with those lashes :)

    1. Thanks doll! I'm loving those lashes. I've worn them to work twice already and EVERYONE loves them. They're so dramatic and over the top :)
