Miami Bday Trip!🎉🎁🍾🎈

Hi everyone! It’s been a while I know. Ever since my last post I’ve been working full time, which made posting here a little difficult for me. On my free time I focus on myself, my family, my boyfriend and working out. That doesn’t mean I miss writing and sharing stuff.

This time around I’d love to share my last mini trip to Miami, which was a bday gift from my boyfriend. I have two best friends and both of them live in the USA. One in Tennessee and the other one in Miami. One of my boyfriend’s best friends lives also in Miami so the long weekend around my birthday was the perfect opportunity to make a little escape. That way I could celebrate my bday with one of my girlfriends, something I haven’t done in a while. Here some photos!

🎃🕷Trick or Treat!|Halloween Costume at Job🕷🎃

HAPPY HALLOWEEN babes!🎃🕸🕷Today is gonna be a quick one! Monday my boss told us that there was gonna be a Halloween Costume Competition. The prize is a gift card from Plaza Las Amercias Shopping Center. Being the makeup freak that I am, I got super excited. Not just for the prize but mainly because I thought it was a fun idea for us the coworkers. Since very little I loved Halloween and it has been a while since the last time I dressed up.

A little before the announcement of the competition, I saw this picture by Makeup Artist and blogger, Linda Hallberg and loved it immediately. She has other Halloween looks that are amazing just as the makeup she does! Then when they told us of getting dressed up for Halloween for my job, I knew which look to try to pull off!

 

 

  

   

   

I hope you liked it! I’ll let you know later if I won!☺️😝I’m on my way to work!!! What was your choice for this year Halloween? Have fun!!🎃🕷

Thanks for the love!❤️

⚫️Black Sparkle!|Anastasia Beverly Hills Midnight Liquid Lipstick⚫️

Hiiii everyoneee!!!! Been a long while since my last post. But I’m so happy to be back!!!!☺️

My boyfriend just bought me Anastasia Beverly Hills Midnight Liquid Lipstick from the fall collection!!! How can I not want it? I love black, I love dark lipsticks, it’s Halloween month and very important, this blog is called “The Black Sparkles Gal” so there’s no time like the present!!!😝

Black lipstick can be a challenging color to wear. In this post, I’d like to  show you, two makeup looks you can use to pair your black lips with! As usual, I used for the eyes my favorite colors which are warm neutrals. I just love them because you can pair any lipstick shade with.

  

 First look is “simpler”. Meaning I’m not using any bold cat eye or too deep eye liner. Just added to this makeup look and white eyeliner to my water line.  

    

 

    
Eye Makeup Dets:

Eyelids: Copper Sparkle by MAC.

Crease and Lower Eyelids: Copper Shimmer Eyeshadow Singles by Anastasia Beverly Hills.

Waterline: Biotherm White Eyeliner. (I had it for the longest time, don’t know the exact name)

So for this other look I’ve just added the bold cat eye and the dramatic eyeliner I mentioned a few lines ago.😝 

   

  
  Eyeliner: ABH Waterproof Cream Color in Jet.

Lower eyelids: Carbon Eyeshadow by MAC.
Other makeup dets:

Foundation: Vitalumiere by Chanel in Naturel.

Concealer: Radiant Creamy Concealer by NARS in Custard.

Setting Powder and Bake: Ben Nye in Cameo.

Sculpt: Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit in Light to Medium.

Highlighter: Soft and Gentle by MAC.

Blush: Peachtwist by MAC.

Eyebrows: ABH Dipbrow Pomade in Soft Brown.

Falsies: Ardell Glamour Wispies Black.

I hope you liked the different makeup alternatives we can use when we want to give the black lips a chance! This is a good season to try them out! I’ve never done it before, but so far I’m liking it!!!! Do you dare?!☺️

Thanks for all the love and support!!!💖

Hola a todooos!!! A pasado algun tiempo desde mi ultimo post, pero estoy mas que feliz de estar de vuelta!!!☺️

Recientemente mi novio me regaló el labial Midnight de la coleccion de otoño de Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Listicks. Como no quererlo? Me encanta el color negro, me encantan los labiales oscuros, es el mes de Halloween y muy importante, este blog se llama “The Black Sparkles Gal”, asi q no hay mejor momento que el presente!😝

Un labial negro puede ser un color bastante dificil de llevar, En este post les muestro tres estilos de maquillaje diferentes para combinar con ese labial negro! Como de costumbre, llevo en mis ojos colores cálidos neutrales. Los amo por que con ellos se me hace más fácil usar cualquier tonalidad de labial.

El primer look es más “sencillo”. Es decir que no llevo un cat eyes atrevido o un eye liner dramático. Solo añado mi amado delineador blanco a la línea de agua.

En el segundo look añandi el cateyes atrevido y el delineador de ojos dramático.😝

Espero les haya gustado las diferentes alternativas de maquillaje que podemos usar a la hora de darle la oportunidad a un labial negro. Es buena temporada para animarnos! Nunca antes lo habia intentado yo, y hasta ahora me ha gustado!!! Me encantaria ver sus lipsticks color negro!!! Se animan???☺️

Gracias por tanto amor y apoyo!!!💖

Boyfriend’s Pick: His Favorite Makeup!

Hey sweetie pies!!! I’ve been absent because I started a new job this week. I just feel grateful to be working so! YaY!😝

Today’s post is a special one. As you saw on the title, it has to do with very special affairs in my life. My boy and makeup! So, I’m lucky enough to have a boyfriend that doesn’t complains about me being the makeup freak that I am. He also supports me on this Makeup Blogging thing. He said that when he first saw me, he loved my very black smokey eyes (circa 2010/11), my very pink blushed cheeks and lipstick.😂😂😂 He loves when I do my makeup like that. Being so supportive and all, he suggested some makeup ideas. Those ideas became this blog post you are reading today hopefully! He gave me the ideas, but I did the proper adjustments to it!😃

Hola amores! He estado ausente estos días por que he comenzado en un nuevo trabajo. Me siento muy agradecida de poder estar laborando! Yayy!😝

El post de hoy es un tanto especial. Cómo habrán leído en el título, tiene que ver con dos asuntos muy especiales en mi vida. Mi chico y el “make”! Tengo mucha suerte de que mi novio no se queja de que use maquillaje y sea tan obsesiva con el mismo. El también me apoya mucho con él makeup blogging. Él dice que la primera vez q me vio, le llamó la atención mi smokey eyes súper negro, las mejillas súper rosadas y los labios igual.😂😂😂 Le gusta mucho cuando me hago el maquillaje de esa manera. Como parte de su apoyo, me sugiere ideas que hoy son este post que estás leyendo!😃 El me da algunas ideitas, pero yo las ajusto a mi manera!😏

Espero les haya gustado este maleup look. So tienen alguna duda o pregunta, escriban en el area de comentarios y con gusto les responderé! 

Gracias por tanto amor!💖

A well spent Saturday!

Hi guys!!!😝 Hoping you are all doing great! I’ve been MIA, sorry about that! Been busy focusing on job interviews and I’m starting tomorrow on a new one! I’m very excited!😆

I wanted to share some pictures from a little trip to a beach food kiosks, my boyfriend, some friends and I did, this last saturday to a beach called Luquillo, where there’s a large line of food kiosks/restaurants. The menus are
mainly focused on sea food and frituras, which are fried food, native dishes from our island. Frituras includes Alcapurrias, Bacalaitos, Empanadillas, Tostones and many more.  

 

I enjoyed two beef alcapurrias, but I was focused to get my self a Piña Colada inside a pineapple.

   

 

This Piña Colada, costs $13.00. I think it was a bit pricey but believe me, it was a LOT of piña colada. It was served with whipped cream and a cherry on top. 

After we ate, we walked to the beach. We didn’t get into the water or anything, but we did enjoy the gorgeous view.

   

    
    

 

Luquillo Beach is located to the northeast coast of our island. It’s one of the most popular beaches we have in Puerto Rico. As you can see, the water is very serene, which I love because I have respect for the ocean. I had a few scary moments with the sea in younger years.

After that, we went to an ice cream place and chat a lot!😋😝 Definetly we had a great time!☺️

So there you have my loves. Hope you enjoyed this pictures from my beloved Puerto Rico beaches. I like to share little bits of where I come from with you guys.

Thanks for stopping by!💖

Lots of love!💕

Autumn Makeup Ideas|Bright Lips?

Hello beautiful ones! Hope you’re all doing good! Today, I’ll be sharing some autumn makeup ideas, focusing on lip colors. I love everything fall! The outfits, the color trends, the weather, the leaves changing, you name it! Of course, I love a dark vampy lip, which is the make up trend when autumn arrives. I use the vampy lips all year long. I don’t wait till fall, but yes, I’ll be using my dark lippies more often on this season than the others!

Then I thought, that there are ladies, that maybe are not so comfortable wearing dark lippies. Some because they don’t think of them as flattering shades or they don’t dare to use those dark colors. So, I came up with some makeup ideas for fall, featuring a lighter/brighter lip but staying on seasonal colors!

Every year, Pantone picks the color trends, two times a year covering every season (f.e. Autumn/Winter, Spring/Summer). Fashion designers, makeup lines, florists and many other companies related to customers, use this as a more precise guideline for their upcoming design collections and product planning. So when it comes to fashion and makeup color trends we can stick to the Pantone Color Trend for fall or just ignore and go with actual nature autumn colors like orange, magenta, purple, red, burgundy or brown. Which is more of what you’ll see in my following makeup ideas!

Neon Lips for Fall? Shocker! I think though orange is a shade mostly used for summer, it’s still a seasonal color that can be used kn fall makeup, if you are not feeling the dark lippies! On the lips: Neon Coral by Anastasia Beverly Hills

Paired my orange lips with a neutral warm Cut Crease look on my eyes. Eyelids: Bamboo by MAC. Crease: Saddle by MAC and Bengal as a tansition shade. Eyeliner: Jet by ABH. Falsie: Ardell Wispies.

An alternate shade for fall is this purplish mauve by ABH, called Veronica.

On the lips: Lined and fill the lips with Magenta Lip Pencil by MAC and then applied Heroine lipstick by MAC.

For this look, I just added Copper Sparkle Pigment by MAC on the eyelids and darkened my creade with Dance in the Dark also by MAC. Used Saddle below the lower lashline and the pigment as well. Lined my waterline with white eyeliner. On the lips: Verve by MAC topped with Pure Hollywood by ABH.

Same lip combination butnwith a layer of Lime Crime’s Cashmere.

I know I’ve said this post is focused on alternate lipstick shades for fall rather than dark ones, but I couldn’t resist!!! On the lips: Potion by ABH.

Other Makeup Details

Foundation: Vitalumiere by Chanel in Naturel.

Concealer: NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard.

Contour: Light Contour Kit by Anastasia Beverly Hills.

Highlight: Soft and Gentle by MAC.

Eyebrows: Dip Brow Pomade By ABH.

Hope you liked this looks I shared, gave you some ideas for fall makeup and alternate lip shades. Though you might want to get out of your comfort zone and try the dark lips! Maybe a burgundy color! 

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!☺️💖

Hola corazones! Espero estén todos super bien! Hoy estaré compartiendo ideas para looks de maquillaje para otoño, enfocandome mas que nada en los tonos del labial. A mi me encanta el otoño! La ropa, los colores de temporada, el clima, las hojas cambiando de colores, bueno todo! Por su puesto, me encantan los labiales super oscuros tipo vampiro, que es la tendencia en maquillaje una vez llega el otono. Yo utlizo los labiales oscuros todo el año. No espero a que llegue el otoño. Pero sí, los utilizaré mucho más en ésta temporada que en las otras.

Entonces pensé, que hay chicas, que quizás no se sienten tan cómodas utilizando labiales oscuros. Algunas por que piensan que son tonalidades que no les favorecen o quizás por que no se atreven a usar colores oscuros para labial. Por esto, se me ocurrieron algunas ideas para maquillaje de otoño, utilizando labiales más claros o brillantes, pero manteniendonos dentro de la línea de colores de temporada.

Todos los años, Pantone elige los colores en tendencia para las temporadas del año. (Otoño/Invierno, Primavera/Verano). Los diseñadores de moda, líneas de maquillaje, floristas y otras compañías, usan esto como una guia precisa para sus próximas colecciones para dichas temporadas y planificación de productos. Así que cuando se trate de moda o tendencias de maquillaje, podemos seguir los colores que dicta Pantone para el otono o ignorar y seguir la línea de colores de la naturaleza en otoño (p.e. naranja, magenta, rojo, vino, violeta o marrón). Esos colores son los más que veran en mis ideas de maquillaje  en las fotos arriba.

Espero que les hayan gustado estos looks que compartí, queda haya ayudado a crear algunas ideas para maquillaje y los colores de labial alternos para otoño. Quizás quieran salir de la zona de comfort y tratar labiales oscuros. Quizás un color vino!

Les agradezco que hayan pasado por aquí y espero tengan un maravilloso día! ☺️💖
