I am so excited for my up and coming LIVE tutorial with MakeUpShayla on my channel! I recently posted her photo on my IG and asked to do her makeup on MakeUpbyLilitLIVE and she responded that she would love to! She asked that I re-create the ever so famous Green Smokey-Eyes I did on myself years ago. She came in the following week and we played around and created the look while taking some photos and videos (attached below). She is SO beautiful without makeup and one of the realist/sweetest girls I know, so of course we had a good time. If you would like to join us as I go through the entire transformation process, sign up to my channel here. I will go over every product as I demonstrate how I use it and why! Watch the entire look take place including highlighting & contouring, THE smokey green eyes, lashes, brows and everything in between! For those of you who don't know how this works, it's basically a monthly subscription of only $19 a month as I do 2-4 LIVE tutorials a month. Each class is at least an hour long and includes a LIVE Q&A from my viewers, YOU! Each month, the videos change so make sure you catch my last class for the Valentine's Day Makeover & my Make-up Kit Must-Haves. AND you will also be signed up in time to watch my Bridal & Customizing Lashes class. This informative class is NOT just for makeup artists but anyone who wants to enhance their skills or knowledge in the beauty world. Some ask how it's different than my seminars at my studio? Well, it's not "hands-on" for starters and the one-day seminar includes everything in one class with one look. The online classes are more specific and very thorough on each subject. I do also take requests in the type of classes you would like to see, so feel free to comment and let me know as well! For those of you who have been subscribed & watching the last 5 months, thank you for joining! Look forward to chatting with you in future classes. Much LOVE! - Lilit
So I realized in my archives I've been blogging since 2009! You don't realize how quickly time goes by...until you realize the image of your blog hasn't changed since 2009! It's like you haven't changed your makeup and hair for 8 years and it was time for a facelift, at this point. I love blogging and I've been spending a lot more time contributing to it lately. I hope you guys are loving it as much as I am! Let me know your thoughts! Xoxo
So I've been trying to grow my hair out for the past 10 years. Lol! No joke. It's just never long enough! As soon as it starts to grow...I have to trim it (I'm a healthy hair freak). But anyways, I guess it just grows really slow! So I decided to give the Bellami Hair Extensions a try, which everyone has been raving about! I ordered the 220g 22in (#2/#6) Guy Tang Balayage extensions which seemed to match my hair most. Long behold, perfect match! I love how the silky, rich, REAL texture it has. I was able to curl and style it the way I want just like my own hair. I automatically felt more sexy and exotic, how crazy is that? What some hair and a lipstick can do to a girl lol. Let me know what your thoughts are! Do you Love it? Hate it? Till next time! Xoxo

I had decided to post my favorite dressed red carpet celebrity but realized there was so many! How stunning did everyone look? The gowns were so different and yet so elegant. Loved the entire show from the red carpet, to the speeches and the performances (Lady Gaga being one of my definite favorites). I did notice a lot of red lips trending and as you all know, I'm a huge fan of this! As far as makeup, Chrissy Teigan definitely takes the cake for me! That silver pale dress with the dark red/purple lip along with her coordinated nails was perfection. If you're going to an event and don't know what to do with your makeup, the trick is to always balance out the color of your dress. If you're going with a light/pale dress, dark colors look great and if you're wearing a dark dress, lighter colors look better on the lips. You can always refer to the color chart to chose the tone. Opposites attract ;) It seems like dark lips are here to stay, even for the Spring! Sure makes me smile! Who were your favorite looks?!
Best pictorial on how to use the Beauty Blender the right way. Of course it could be used in several ways (being preferred dry by some makeup artists) but you can definitely never go wrong using it damp! Gives a very airbrushed look and finish to the skin. Also, using it damp helps you control the layering process. You can have easy coverage to heavy without the cake! Hope this helps. XO

I am absolutely just in love with her makeup! I love how subtle her makeup is. Here's to show, little bit of makeup goes a long way! They never contour her face too much (mind you, she is still an infant) and her beautiful eyes are always played down with a sheer wash of color and plenty lashes! Looks like individuals or eyelashe extensions perhaps? What do you guys think?
I am a true believer of GOOD karma. Everyone is always talking about the negative karma. But if we just focus on ourselves and our hearts...good karma overpowers everything. Whatever you put into the world, you will always receive 10-fold. With that said; stay positive, be good, do good and do it with love. goodnight! xo
There's nothing like taking a break from your rapid paced life to enjoy a sweet cup of tea with sweet company. Last week, I had the delightful experience to be a part of a very special launch at the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena. The Langham, in collaboration with Wedgwood, invited me and a couple girlfriends of mine to an exclusive Afternoon Tea preview event. My group of girls and I were one of the first to be lucky enough to experience this wonderful addition to their already amazing hospitality offerings.
The Langham was gracious enough to have my good friend Viola of ProjectSweetStuff and I, be the host of this lovely little event. It was the perfect afternoon after our "What's Your Sweet Life?" event to share with our fabulous friends, who we only grew closer with! It was so fun to experience a different type of day than what I am usually used to. Even though both Viola and I were still the main hosts for this introduction, this event was so different than the one her and I initially produced two weeks ago. While enjoying tea and keeping the question still circling around "What's your sweet life?", we managed to continue down that path, and actually swam into even deeper waters and learned much more from one another. This afternoon was so calming and blissful, that all the girls in attendance, truly had the opportunity to really relax and enjoy a fine cup of tea along with mouthwatering bites of delight!
The set up was so delicate and beautiful, it seemed as if someone literally brought a painting to life! The customization of the fine tea ware by Wedgwood was tailored to the perfect feminine touch. The floral patterns were just enough to relish the already beautiful white china, while the shiny silverware polished the table setting to perfection. I loved how different it felt from anything I have ever done and it's something I truly would love to come back for and introduce to my own family and many other sets of friends!
So by now, after all my gushing about my unbelievable excitement and telling you all how wonderfully customized all of this was, directly for the Langham hotel, including the floral decal for the tea ware, to the decadent and delicious desserts and small bites, you're probably thinking okay so it doesn't get any better than that..... UMM, WRONG!!! Wait, I have more. So I'm not joking when I say, this was a day out of a storybook! After all that amazing-ness, came the higher level of amazing-ness lol! Are you ready? *deep breath* ALL THE GIRLS WERE TREATED TO RIDICULOUSLY SPECIAL SPA SERVICES! We were all pampered with massages, hydro-facials, manicures and eyebrow shaping!
When I came home, all I could think about was planning my next outing there with my family and friends! I was so relaxed, I almost didn't feel like myself. I guess I need a couple more of these events to get used to it, but even then, I don't think I can. I would just want more, more, more and more! LOL! Honestly, I loved every bit of that day; from the oh-so-sweet and lovely company I was in, to the beautifully custom designed layout by Wedgwood and of course, to the over-the-top pampering services.
But, the biggest highlight of all was the lovely surprise that The Langham blew me away with! As many of you know, I recently became engaged and the wonderful people at the hotel took it upon themselves to congratulate me in the most adorable way! They brought out a little sweet somethin' and we were all able to celebrate together! It was so cute and special to me. because I'm a girl all about the little custom touches, which is why I loved the afternoon tea event so much!,
It's one thing to do business with someone, but when you feel a connection beyond that, you can't help but build upon that. So, with that said, I can finally announce, after weeks and weeks of planning 'hush hush' meetings, you guys get to hear it first: "What's Your Sweet Life?" is officially partnering with The Langham in Pasadena for our next event! Stay tuned for all the latest details and exciting scoop that is yet to come! "What's Your Sweet Life?": Langham Edition, is coming in September 2014!
All I can say over all is.....Langham, you had me on cloud 9, 10 and all the way to 100. Thank you for showing me 100% of all your amazing accommodations and introducing me to this wonderful addition in your hotel. Afternoon High Tea -- I will be back for you, we are not finished! ;) And "What's Your Sweet Life?" cannot wait until our big collaboration later this year!
I would like to thank everyone who attended this fabulous event and made it so very special in their each unique way. It was a night full of laughs, tears, good food, flowing wine and mainly, good company. It was so special to have so many different women, from all walks of life, under one roof. To give you all a little sneak peak of what went on, below are some photos for your enjoyment! Stay tuned for more pictures and details on the entire evening! I have so much to share, but would like to start here.......
