Black & Green Smoky Eye Makeup Tutorial

This is a great look to try out for a fun night out or as a sexy New Year's look. I love doing this type of smoky eye because people think its really hard to do but its actually not. If you don't want to use green, switch it out for any other color you want....black, purple, pink etc.

StyleSpy & The Gap Shopping Party Pictures

The Style Spy shopping party at The Gap on Robson St on Tuesday evening was a great sucess.  We had so my stylish fashionistas come out to the party and do some shopping.  All the mannequins the Style Spy girls styled looked awesome!  I wanted to steal all the outfits.  There was a Blo Braid Bar station where you can get your hair braided and a Candy Bar full of candy! And on tunes, Dj Anna rocked the house. Here are some pics from the night.  Thanks to photographer Georgia Esporalas for all the images.
