Next up on the.B.Law Style Panel I would like to introduce Nicole! Her job on the panel is unique from the others because she is my beauty expert! Nicole is the best hair and makeup doer I know, and I am not just biased because she is my older sister! She truly does great work, I ALWAYS get compliments on my hair color. What is also so great about her work is that you can tell how passionate she is. It is so easy to see that she loves what she does and wants you to love the outcome of her work. A little background, I have known Nicole my entire life, that is all. HA! Just kidding, she is my big sissy and I love her. We are only a year and a half apart so you can bet we used to fight and bicker like no other, but she is one of my best friends and I would be lost without her.
I am so excited for her to be a part of the panel, not just for you readers but for myself! I know only the basics of hair and makeup so I will be learning just as much as you will be! I totally want to get her into doing tutorials and all of that stuff. AWW! Sorry I am just so excited about this. Check her out!

Holiday parties are always fun to get dresses up for. It’s a time to wear darker colors, silver and gold, and of course glitter. A dramatic eye can really change your look and is perfect to pair with your holiday dresses. I am loving this plum colored, glitter smokey eye by my sister, Beauty by Nicole Breanne. It is just dark enough and not too overpowering. The glitter really adds the extra party look and who doesn’t love to sparkle all night? Can I recreate this look this weekend? We will see haha, I will probably be face timing my sister. Check out her other looks because she is an amazing makeup and hair artist!

I want start a new thing where I share some of my favorite things with you all. Please feel free to share back your favorites so we can all learn about new, well new anything!
The first two things I want to share are my new Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in the color Patina, basically a lip stain, and let me tell you, it is amazing. It literally stays all day, even after drinking and eating, I still come home from work with full color on my lips. I have been curious about the Stila lip stains since my friend Amanda, from Glitter it Gold, started wearing the red one. Her lips always look so flawless when she wears it that I was completely convinced that I wanted one. Now I wear mine almost everyday. The color Patina goes with almost everything and is a great warm color for fall and winter. I will definitely be looking into a brighter color come Spring. I bought mine at Ulta and although it was $24.00, it is totally worth it since you just need to put it on once and you are set for the day, so it will last a long time.
My second favorite thing is False Lashes Mascara by MAC in black. I got this mascara as part of an eye kit where I got a cream eye shadow in dusty pink, a plum gel eyeliner, a double sided brush for the liner and the shadow, and this amazing mascara! The first time I tried it I was amazed, it worked so well! Even after using it for a month it still looks great! You know how sometimes after you have been using the same mascara for awhile it gets a little dry and doesn’t have the same wow effect? So far this hasn’t done that! For a pricey mascara, $22.00, this is my new go to (other wise I stick with my Maybelline which I will talk about it in a later post).
If you are looking for a new lip color or mascara definitely check these two out.

Lipstick has been a a big love of mine. I have collected quite a few, my weakness, Mac. When I say quite a few, I mean…
That pile is even missing a few. I fell out of wearing it for awhile because of where I was working, we were only allowed to wear “natural” makeup. Now I’m getting back into them full swing! I don’t know about how other girls feel when they put on lipstick, but for me, I feel different. It is like my lipsticks have powers. I get a new sense of confidence when I am wearing a bright one. It’s an attention grabber. It really is true that when you look good, you feel good. Today I wore my favorite new bright pink Viva Glam Miley by Miley Cyrus.
If I were to ever have my own lipstick line, I would want them to have inspirational names for women like “You Go Girl”, “This Is Your Day”, and “You Got This”. They would give a little more confidence when you wear them and every time you reapply.
Here is to having confidence and pretty lips!
