typical Jersey

I just want to start off by saying, not everyone in Jersey is like how the cast of Jerseylicious is. Maybe a small percentage is, but def not most people. However, being from Jersey, we def stick out, and we have our own sense of style and we really don't care if you like it or not.
That being said, I am a smokey eye and nude lip kind of girl. Typical Jersey, I know!! I use black (carbon by mac, le duh! ) maybe like 6 out of 7 days a week when doing my eye makeup. Now, that doesn't mean that I have black all over my lid and from lash line to brows! Def not! I put a lighter color, almost nude on my lid, and then use carbon in my crease to make my eyes pop, then blend the crap out of it! When I am done, you can't even tell its totally black, it takes on more a greyish tone from blending.
However, a night time look....well the blacker the better! That's jersey style! I usually use dreamy from lorac and carbon from mac mixed in with a little bit of either contrast or silver ring, both from mac. When going out, I always put more make up on then I think I need because being in a club or bar, you get so hot, it moves, it comes off,so to me, its better to start off with more, then to fix it and add more in the gross bathroom.

Here are some looks I have come across that just scream me!


I always love a defined brow, but define and dramatic are two different things!! This one is way too harsh, but the eyes are amaze!

This is like what I do on a daily basis, minus extending the eye.

Makeup...flawless! Nude lip and smokey eye obsessed!

You can also do smokey with different colors, I just always go for dark ones.

Love the contrast, and how dark the eye is, and its balanced with the rest of the colors on the face.
