Andrea's Fashion Favorites - Red Carpet Looks Of The Year Featuring Jennifer Lopez, Freida Pinto, Beyoncé & Kim Kardashian!

So 2013 is officially coming to an end and here in Vegas the partying has already started. I wanted to give you my top 4 looks of this year that were not only sexy but pure glamour! What were some of your favorite red carpet looks of 2013?! XO Andrea

Jennifer Lopez is everything to me! She wore this beautiful asymmetrical cut Anthony Vaccarella dress and a gorgeous pair of Tom Ford Shoes earlier this year at the Grammys and this look is one word...SEXY!!

Frieda Pinto was beyond beautiful attending the Cannes Film Festival! She wore this Gucci gown and her whole look just had a glamorous bollywood feel to it, I really LOVE this! 

 Besides performing at the Superbowl,  Beyoncé had been on tour really this entire year and a few days ago she had a visual album screening in NYC and slayed this entire look rocking Tom Ford from head to toe.  

This has been an amazing year for Kim, she gave birth to a baby girl and got engaged plus partied at TAO in Las Vegas wearing this gorgeous Ermanno Scervino dress. I'm loving Kim's post-baby style, she paired her dress with Tom Ford shoes & Dolce and Gabbana Clutch.

My 2013 Beauty Favorites Of The Year!

2013 Beauty Favorites!

Oh don't well all LOVE Mondays?!! This is the last Monday of the year and I wanted to share with you all my FAVORITE beauty products from this year. To be honest, I rarely wore any makeup this year.. foundation, no blush, no bronzer just a little mascara vs. 2012 when I used to go all out with my makeup. Don't get me wrong I love to play with my makeup but I am not at my best right now *weight wise* and I've let myself go a little but my new years resolution is to be fit and healthy and I'm determined to make it happen! So back to the list, here's why I love each and every one of these beauties and also this list is in no particular order! 

1. Korres Pomegranate Toner - This toner is mainly for oily skin, I use it every other day and sometimes every two days when I wake up and before I go to bed and not only does it smell good it wipes away the dirt and leaves a fresh sensation feeling on my face. LOVE! 

2. Beyoncé 'Pulse' Parfum - Whenever I go to work or go out this is my go to fragrance, it has the electrifying scent no one can deny.

3. Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick - I have 3 shades from this collection that I purchased months ago this year called Pink Chic, Nude Delight & one of their newest shades 'Lets Get Naked' and I have to say Nude Delight is my FAVORITE!

4. Urban Decay DeSlick Setting Spray - If you have oily skin like myself, whether your wearing makeup or not it's a great face mist and it works.

5. Rosebud Strawberry Lipbalm - All time favorite lipbalm. I HATE Carmex, that is the most disgusting smelling lip product ever created and I don't use Chapstick either but one brand that I do love is Blistex which is more affordable. This will cost you about $7 at Sephora but trust me it's the best lipbalm you've ever had!

6. Jessica Simpson 'I Fancy You' Parfum - Me and my mamma LOVE this fragrance. It's fresh and soft and plus it smells amazing.

7.  Beyoncé 'Heat Mrs.Carter World Tour' Parfum - I forgot to include this into my list but this is also another amazing fragrance by B. This was a special edition fragrance from her Mrs.Carter world tour and I scored a bottle at Marshall's actually and Im happy I did back in October! It's refreshing but slightly sweet and it smells good!

What are some of your favorite beauty products of the year?! XO Andrea

Monday Makeup Favorite - Holiday Glitter Goddess

Christmas is in 2 days!! It's been a while since I have done a Monday Makeup Favorite so I'd thought what better time to get back to posting then now?! Holiday season means tons of glitter and sparkles and one trend that will never die down is sparkly makeup. Whether for your eyes, lips and sometimes even eyebrows adding a touch of glitter is so much more fun and adds a glistening touch! So this season do something fun like  mulit-colored eyeliner or purple glitter lips and if your feeling bold gold sequin brows, SUPER FUN!! XO Andrea
