I’ve been SO into dark lips lately! I just feel like it gives me a totally different look and it will for you too! I am a NUDE kinda girl, I literally wear nude 355 days of the year, and the other ten days I switch it up! The lashes I am wearing here are LillyLashes in Mykonos you can use my code Arika to get a discount!
Here are two different types of DARK LIPS! The first one right here with the GRUNGE look is MEDIA lipstick and NIGHTMOTH lipliner from MAC COSMETICS! This is my go-to vampy lip and I absolutely love it. I wore it during the winter last year several times and I will definitely be bringing it back this fall!
I know it’s a huge makeup no-no if you wear a dark eye to do a dark lip. I lightened the lips and did a lighter brown lid and I was able to make the lips the focus!
This black bodysuit is from Want My Look. I love it because it’s bandage and it’s comfortable. A lot of bodysuits kind of go up my *kitty* because my torso is kinda long, lol. This one doesn’t do that so it’s a bit more comfy than some of the other bodysuits I’ve been wearing. You can add shorts, a skirt, to wear it out. You can definitely wear it alone to a pool party It is not a swimsuit so don’t go in the water with it!
Last year when I wore the Vampy lips I was a bit lighter. I wasn’t really doing too many spray tans and I was only spraying when I had a shoot! This year, I have been going IN on spray tans! I don’t know I just feel sexier being tan and I feel like my makeup and hair does look better. I’ve been trying different spray tans, but they are all airbrush tans that someone does for me. I always use organic solutions! Most of the time the solution is Norvell.
My hair is something that I get questions on everyday. My colorist is the amazing Guy Tang, if you guys don’t know him, he literally is a HAIR GOD! I love him as a person too! His talent is spectacular, but his heart is EVERYTHING!! He dedicates so much time into his craft and his art and the way he does hair is amazing! Every hair style he’s done he has never let them leave the salon if it wasn’t perfection. I have a Balayage ombre in blonde and the root is dark brown. I also add extensions from Bellami Hair that Guy also colors in the color 8/60. If you want to get the extensions please use code “arika” for $ off!
If you watch my videos you guys know I am confident but there are areas of my body that I want to work on! I have made a vow today that I will upkeep my body and go on a major cleanse. I’ve been traveling and shooting a show and eating whatever I wanted and I feel that it has changed the way I feel about myself so I will be vlogging my journey. I know we are going into fall but my bodycon dresses don’t play, so I musttttt be on point! If you guys want to do it with me let me know! We can do it together!
These boots I am wearing are also from WANT MY LOOK. I love them because they are not too hot that you can wear them when it’s still warm out. It’s like a sandal boot. I always like Lace up boots that are open and you can see the leg. I don’t see the point of lace-up if you can’t see the leg under. I really wanted the Tom Ford ones they had last year, this year they have them but cover the legs.. Boo.
