Be a 4th of July Cutie Pie!


Your wish is my command! 
Here is the second American Independence Day look that I promised to deliver to you :) I'm absolutely flattered that you all requested a second video to go along with this special celebration in USA history!
:D


Shimmer shadows catch and hold light beautifully, so if you're looking to stop traffic with your eyes, ditch the matte and go for the shine! :)

The jewel placement in this look is similar to that of my St. Patrick's Day Pot of Gold eyes.



Missed the video? No worries love you can view my very first holiday themed tutorial right here!
 



I hate to break my promises, but I have to confess!: I am HORRIBLE at hair styling! So I was a lil over excited when I told you guys I'd show you what I was doing with my hair for Independence Day. I tried out my idea and it was a total, complete, undoubted epic FAIL!!!




LOL, guess I shoulda tried it out first before I opened my big mouth, huh? (hehe)
I'll make a note of that and remember it for next time ;D


I'll be capturing all of the holiday memories for us to share, so be sure to check out my vlog channel, so you don't miss out on the fourth of july fun!


Have a safe and Happy Fantastic Fourth everyone!!!

Independence Day Diva!

Fire up the grill and light those sparklers! This fun lil look will have you singing "Stars and Stripes Forever" well after the fireworks have burnt out!



Show your American pride this 4th of July with this beautiful red, white and blue makeup!




I'm so excited for Independence Day, it's one of the best family holidays, IMO :) Every year we go to one of the biggest parks in our county and listen to the symphony play our fave patriotic tunes while we picnic and play games with the kids ^_^ 




 The best part of course is the fireworks finale, but I also love the ride home because you can hear people celebrating all over town. I can't think of a better way to kick off the summer! I can't wait to share our holiday with you, my muffins! Remember to tune in to my new vlog channel to catch up with me and the loves of my life <3




Love my babies sooo much! k, I'll stop gushing now lol!




Have a safe, fun, beautiful, memorable, lovable, fantastic, gorgeous Independence Day, everyone!!

Get lost in a Sultry Summer Sunset!

Save this look for your next summer evening event! I was so inspired by a ***magical, swirling sunset*** that my fiance and I were lucky enough to witness that I knew I HAD to do this look ^_^ This will forever be one of the best things about makeup, is that there are no limits




If you think you've seen this look before, you're right! This is the makeup I was wearing in my Blustastic Tips! Two Minute Tutorial. Just in case you missed it, check it out here!




This look was soooo much fun to create and I really hope you all will try it out and pretty please (with 10 cherries and a pound of sugar on top ;) ) let me know how you like it!

After 3 days of effort it's finally finished lol! Took me a while to figure out my new editing program, but it's definitely worth it!

The Easiest Smokey Eye EVER!! (no... seriously!)

Smokey eyes are ALWAYS in style, which is one of the main reasons it has stayed to popular over the years. The effect of this look will change your face dramatically, with ability to turn the cutest "girl next door" into a "life of the party" bombshell!



Remember that when doing your smokey eye look to keep your hair and eye color  in mind, as well as your skin tone
The standard smokey eye colors are, of course black and grey, but don't limit yourself, have fun with it! (^_^) For blue eyes try purple, violet or dark blue shadows. If you're a brown eyed babe like me, spice it up with coffee, copper or golden tones, and for green or hazel eyed beauties play around with purple, dark khaki, dark green, or plum shades!


When creating your smokey eye remember to use powdery eye shadows since they're easier to smudge. I also find that using shimmer shadows help create a beautiful fade effect without having to blend a lot. Less work for us = a good thing lol!


Keeping your lips as natural looking as possible is the best way to make your smokey eyes pop! The contrast is nothing short of stunning, so try using a light rosy pink or caramel shade to complete the look. (The middle pic above is tooo funny for words LOL so I couldn't resist including it... I guess that's my pouty vixen look *eye roll*) :D

Want more Mia Mischief? You're in luck! (^_^)

Bambina Mia!

Hey muffins! I could not resist sharing my darling baby chica with all of you! She's at such a fun age and believe me I am trying my hardest to capture every moment :)

As you can tell Selena (or "mini Mia" as my family calls her, haha) has an extremely LOUD personality...hmmm, no idea where she could have gotten that from? *shrugs* ;D
You all loved the first video so much we did a a spontaneous sequel! We broke out the camera during one of our late night pillow fights which produced the most golden 10 seconds of my life!


By popular demand my lil lovely will be making more appearances in future vids.... baby outfits of the day anyone? ;D


While I was watching Annie's video, tears welled up in my eyes. You never know who you're going to touch and reach! It was truly overwhelming to know that Annie, who lives in a country on the other side of the world from me, not only took time out of her day to watch my vid, but to also make us a gift! That is
 GI-NORMOUS WORLDWIDE LOVE, we should all add into our daily lives ^_^

Thank you to all of my muffins who have embraced Selena and I so openly! GI-NORMOUS LOVE to you from us xoxoxo

YOU INSPIRE ME!

Spreading Love!

These chicas have hearts of gold! I am beyond flattered that they thought of me ^_^

AJ was one of the first girls I really connected with on YouTube. She's an amazing person and very wise beyond her years! If only I'd known then what she knows now lol


Imitation is the best form of flattery! I'm so excited that she shared what she saw in my video with her subscribers!

No one can pronounce my username lol, that's such a major fail on my part... I wanted something unique, something that people would remember... but I forgot to make it something that would be EASY to pronounce lol! *sigh, the moments we wish we could have back (^_^)

Thank you again to these lovely ladies and many more who thought my channel was worth mentioning!

YOU INSPIRE ME!!

xoMia

Thank You

This blog is dedicated to you, my muffin!

 Thank you for all of your support, kindness, and encouragement. There are so many beautiful, talented people on YouTube and you could watch and listen to any of them  any day of the week, but this day, at this moment you've chosen to watch me and I'm infinitely grateful!

YOU INSPIRE  ME.
