Tip Tuesday #15: 3 Ways to Wear MAC Viva Glam Nicki 2

A few posts back, I posted some swatches of some new MAC purchases. One of those purchases was the new Viva Glam Nicki 2 lipstick. (Click HERE to see that post). This shade is probably one of the hardest to wear shades I own. Because I knew it would be a popular item, I decided to try it even though it is not the type of shade I typically go for. It is a very pale lavender that leans closer to white than purple. For all of the MAC Viva Glam products, 100% of the proceeds go to MAC’s AIDS foundation so I felt like it was worthy of my money.

My Straight Hair

I got my hair done, finally! Last time my hair was done by someone other than me was back in May 2012. Needless to say, I was long overdue! My stylist trimmed about 1 inch of my bad ends off. She also colored, blow-dried, and flat-ironed me. This process took about 4 hours. I like the results and I’m surprised by my length! My hair has never, ever been this long before!

The 1st picture is when I originally got all my relaxed ends cut off. The 2nd picture is my most recent trim. Please excuse the wildness in the 2nd picture, it was a very windy day!

I went to a Christmas party last weekend and decided to partake in the glittery madness going on. Keep scrolling for pictures and a video showing how I got this look!
