My lovely readers, please bear with me as I transition into an exciting new year! I’m taking some time to prepare for 2015 so you may see that I’m less active here on MissMaven.com. Rest assured: Come January, I will be back in action! I hope you’re all having a wonderful holiday season. Sending you all hugs!!



Transitioning from fall makeup to winter makeup requires a few minor tweaks to go from the warm and cozy looks of autumn to a more icy, rosy winter look. When I think of winter makeup I immediately think of a cool, pearly highlight paired with soft berry lips, and an altogether softer look, whereas fall is our chance to go for more bold and daring looks with deeper, darker shades.




I just completed my first #TargetStyle challenge, and my task was to create 4 totally different looks with one item. At first I thought it was going to be a piece of cake, but when I actually got to work putting the looks together, I realized there was a lot more to it! The point was to create looks based on different moods and attitudes, so I really wanted to created some nice variation in not only the vibe but also in the way that I used the item. I chose a black and white checkered button down by Mossimo because it seemed like a standard enough piece that a lot of people might have. (I almost chose a sheer lacey top with a floral pattern, but I figured it was really high on the feminine scale, so instead I chose something a little more versatile.)




So many of my favorite beauty products are from Sigma, most especially their eye shadow palettes! Among my favorites are the Resort Palette, which came out a long time ago, (now the individual shadows are available, you can see them here!) and the Brilliant & Spellbinding Palette, which is a more recent release. Another classic favorite is the Paris Palette, with rich, pigmented shadows and blushes all in one kit.

But no matter which products you’re hooked on, Sigma is having two big promotions for Black Friday and Cyber Monday… Keep reading!!
