  • Pantone's release of color of the year may have some people smitten due to it's dramatic tone. However, the Marsala color was chosen for its equal versatility, and luxurious texture.

    As Pantone introduces it, "It's a naturally robust and earthy wine red tone, which enriches our minds, bodies, and souls. It's complimentary to many skin tones, man, or woman." This earthy shade is quite attractive in cosmetics, fashion, your home, weddings, and so much more. Imagine the perfect palette you could incorporate with Marsala. Check out how stylish it could be with our boards below.

  • Exploring new options to bronze, highlight, or contour the shallow areas on your face can be an additional option to get an instant glow. Most of us women, including me, just can't find time to refine certain areas on our faces. The usual for me would a simple Bare Minerals foundation, blush, eye-shadow, and mascara. I prefer this because of its easy applications, and I can get out of the house in less than 15 minutes. But, sometimes adding those few extra touches can shine some light on your face. If you're looking for something quick, and flawless, watch this quick tutorial by Nurberxo's beginner's guide to bronzing, highlighting, and conturing. Her tips are straight forward, and her own tutorial will lead you in the right direction to a sun-kissed look. You can even find ways to tone it down for the upcoming fall season with lighter palettes that won't flock your face. Get the best out of summer with a flawless face.

  • With the long summer nights still ahead, it's time to give your lashes some electrifying character. Long, or short, by applying your basic black coat of mascara first, finish those fine strands with strong, pigmented colors by Ciate "LashLights." It may take a few coats until you see the results, but your eyes will be define by volume, and intensity. Perfect for a night out with the girls! Try this item in these bright shades: Electric-blue, Famous-pink, Surreal-aqua, and Nymph-green. My favorite one is the Famous-pink. Get this item at Sephora. Enjoy!

    Don't forget to share your lash experience with us- #thememoryjournalists, @memoryjournal.

  • Hey ladies, keep your eyes open, and lips rendered for this hot spring makeup trend that will have you looking delightful! While I was checking out some makeup trends from New York Fashion Week, there were plenty of vibrant orange lips, sharp cat-eyes, and dark blue shadowed creases popping out at me on the runways of Prabal Gurung, Nanette Lepore, Donna Karen, Dennis Basso, Tracy Reese, and Marc Jacobs. The overall face was lightly brushed with natural tones to achieve a fresh quality look. I got the pleasure to chat with Sherry, a local, driven and talented make-up artist here in Sacramento, and she tells me that orange lips are going to be huge for spring, with a tone of fresh skin, instead of heavy foundation. I couldn't agree more. Let's smack our bold lips together and brighten up this spring season.


    Get some inspiration from this behind the scenes YouTube video from FashionTV at the Dennis Basso Spring 2014 collection. Also, check out Sherry's amazing work at her website Sherry Vang.
