Lucy Hale is wearing the mark. Buenos Aires Vibe color collection for her makeup look.  The sultry and colorful collection are the perfect addition for summer.  I love the purple tones replacing where you’d typically go black (liner, smokey eye, etc).  Summer is the perfect time to embrace color, functional and packable fashion and a good straw hat.  I’m totally vibing on the mark. Buenos Aires capsule collection, it’s here for a limited time so catch the vibe at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger.

The Ibiza collection has a special place in my heart.  It’s the exact campaign when I joined mark. in 2011, pre blog, so I don’t have any looks but it’s what introduced me to these Instant Vacation releases and I’ve been forever smitten and brings me 4 years later to the Buenos Aires Vibe collection!

Destination:  Buenos Aires!  Cobblestone streets, neoclassical mansions, surly tango parlors… Welcome to South America’s chicest metropolis, where old world elegance meets contemporary cool.  Today’s biggest decision:  Explore the bohemian barrio of La Bocca?  Shop the posh boutiques of the aristocratic Recoleta neighborhood?  Or maybe just linger over a cortado at one of the city’s cafes, staring at the impeccably dressed locals, aka portenos?  Either way get ready for a night on the town, weber the clubs start thumping at 2am and you’ll dance till dawn.  This is Buenos Aires… let our fashion and fragrance take you there!”

Check back for my reviews and looks from this collection that will fit your summer vacation no matter where you go!  Here’s a few looks from the collection and Lucy Hale I’m totally loving!

Valentine’s Day Makeup

Valentine's Day Makeup Look

Valentine’s Day Makeup Look

Need a quick, easy and totally achievable makeup look for Valentine’s Day!?  No worries, because I have the BEST option that is not only easy but definitely date approved!  As much as we want to believe most fellas aren’t into heavy makeup looks, so as much fun it is to play with a super bright blue smokey eye that’s better left for girls night.  A killer Valentine’s Day look needs to be a little sweet, a little sultry and glowing!

mark. Touch and Glow for an easy makeup look!

To Get The Look:

1.  Start with a good concealer!  Sorry, under eye circles will just never be a “in look.”  I used Avon Extra Lasting Concealer in Light Medium.  Preface it with foundation if you’re a foundation kind of person, I typically am not.

2.  Bronzer.  Contour the cheekbones with a little bronzer since a little color in February is necessary.  I used Avon Glow Bronzing Powder.

3.  Touch and Glow.  If you don’t know what mark. Touch and Glow is then get with the program!  It’s the most wonderful (and highly acclaimed) cream to powder multi-tasking pallet out there (and way cheaper than Bobbi Brown Shimmer Cubes!).  Use the top left shade all over the lid then use the bottom left shade to highlight the brow bone and inner corner.  I prefer just to use my finger for this, it works the best for me!  THEN swirl all the shades together with a blush brush and apply the apple of the cheeks.  LASTLY I like to use a foundation brush and just highlight the top of the cheek bones and above the brow bone with a little more touch and glow.  So basically, mark. Touch and Glow is the secret to a killer Valentine’s Day look!

4.  Finish off the eyes with winged out liner using mark.’s new cream liner, Saved By The Gel in Black Board.  Use the included brush for a decently thick line across the upper lash line then flip the brush over and used the angled side to get the perfect flicked out wing.  Get the lots of lashes look with mark. Lash Act in Blackest Black, and don’t forget to curl those lashes first!

5.  Lastly finish off your look with a light pink lip in mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Baby Me.  What’s amazing about All Butter Now is it wears like a balm so a soft moisturized lip with a great color payoff.  What could be more perfect for kissable lips for Valentine’s Day!?

Ta-da super easy and super achievable look with mark. products.  I love this look because it let’s your face shine through but you still look done up effortlessly.  You’ll look stunning for date night, hanging with your friends or even just to wear to work!  It seriously works for almost any occasion since it’s not too done up.  You can shop the products used here and get them in time for Valentine’s Day (and beyond!)  Now this look is even better on Lucy Hale on the cover of the Lot’s To Love mark. Magalog 2 so if I didn’t inspire you for Valentine’s Day maybe she can!  (only I totally think she’s wearing mark. All Butter Now in Pop Tart instead of Baby Me, but you can’t go wrong with either!)
