Stop by and check out how you can recreate Jennifer Lawrence’s dark lips for only $10!
I’ve tried a lot of mascaras but my current favorites are pretty awesome.
My top pick is by Benefit Cosmetics and is also the priciest at $23 but I love how pigmented the color is and how well it extends every lash. They’re Real! Mascara also has a unique brush that helps you reach all the way to the base of your lashes and into the corners of your eye.
Runner ups 2 and 3 can both be found at any drugstore or Ulta for around $10 :) Maybelline’s Illegal Lengths Mascara is very similar to my top pick but it doesn’t add as much volume or color.
The L’OREAL mascara is all about volume….as it says….on the package. Lol. It’s great if that’s all your looking for and it definitely adds drama to the eyes.
Have you tried any of my top picks?
Just a quick little round up of my recent going-ons. I’ve been wearing some new makeup that has been AMAZING. It creates an airbrushed yet natural look, similar to the maybelline makeup I like but with added coverage. I’ll do a post on it soon. I’ve also started my enjoy my week long bday celebration and made my first birthday wish at dinner on Friday :)
The peas are self explanatory. Lmao

My red lip is so easy to replicate! And you can get both the lip pencil & lipstick for around $10 bucks total. For the price, I think you’ll be super happy but I’m going to be honest with you, this is not the kind of lip duo that lasts all night. It will rub off and eating with it on means your straw, food, and napkins will be smeared with red.
So is it really worth the price? Yes! Just plan ahead to wipe it off before sitting down to eat and then quickly reapply after your meal.
What’s your favorite lip color?
Today I’m really excited to share an amazing experiences with you. Last Friday I attended The Imagen Awards because a film I helped produce was nominated! The Imagen Awards aims to recognize, encourage and reward positive portrayals of Latinos in all forms of media. The Foundation also works to create, promote, and enhance opportunities for all Latinos in front of and behind the camera and throughout the entertainment industry.
It took me ALL day to get ready! But I enjoyed every minute, it made me feel like a princess :) I had some amazing people help me pull my look together and I owe them sooo much because God knows I wake up looking like a train wreck every morning! Lol. My hair was done by the amazing Lupe at Elegance Salon, if you’re in the inland empire and are looking for a stylist that does great work, you should definitely give her a call!
My makeup was done by Laura of Miss Prissy and I wish I had gotten more photo of it because the few I did get, truly don’t do it justice. She was able to make me look flawless and perfectly contoured. She specializes in a variety of makeup including special effects for film & TV. She’s located in the SGV but does travel!
Now for fun, star sightings!!! In no particular order, here is a list of some of the celebs I saw: Constance Marie (George Lopez Show), Aubrey Plaza (Parks & Recreation), Bella Thorne (Shake it Up), Jon Huertas (Castle)
I felt really blessed just attending The Imagen Awards. It was a great experience. Being in a room full of people who have accomplished their dreams, at least in part, of creating a successful career in the entertainment industry was inspiring. I think life is too short not to pursue the things you truly want to do. Whatever your dreams may be…acting, singing, opening a flower shop….whatever your heart is calling you to do, do it.
P.S. Believe it or not I did wear a dress from Windsor to the awards! Yep…a girl on ANY budget can look red carpet ready!
What You’ll Need:
This week featured the lovely and talented Emma Stone. I love her sweet style and how genuine she comes across! As I continue to recreate looks, I want you guys to know that LoveNiki is a place full of love. I’m not here to bash or judge celebrities’ style or life.
I love being able to look at them and the world around me for inspiration. I think the world would be a much better place if we all made an effort to support each other and our uniqueness :)
On to the makeup… The biggest secret to Emma’s look is getting the blue to pop. Use a white cream base like the one above and your blue shadow will really stand out! I may be a beginner but playing with makeup is fun. Lol
“There are no ugly women, only lazy ones.” – Helena Rubenstein
This quote perfectly aligns with what I’ve been thinking about. Being lazy eats up all the time we have to do something more girly and fun, like throwing on a pair of stilettos just because we feel like it.
