No matter what kind of look you are going for, full, moisturized, beautiful lips always look stunning. Whether you are rocking a standout bright lip color, or a slick of barely there nude color, whether it’s a slick of clear gloss or a vampy red, oh-so-carefully applied, lippy makes your look!

Much as we all luuuurve warm Summer days, they can come with a few of their own challenges! Like an increase in insect bites! And the need to protect yourself from the very warmth we all love so much – the sun. And, of course, our body’s own reactions to the warmth. The slight glow, or outright sweat some good old high temperatures cause! It can play havoc with your makeup. It can make your carefully applied face of beauty turn into a mascara-streaked gloop-fest. So not your favorite look, I know.
Hello my beautiful ones! Today, I want to give the spotlight to a humble member of the makeup foundation family – the concealer. Concealer is one of those items we all have, and we all need, yet it doesn’t get much limelight in the ‘sexy’ makeup stakes. However, it is one of those hard workers that will keep surprising you with how much MORE they can do than first meets the eye!
I love seeing the amazing get-ups that celebrities wear to the Met Gala. It’s a chance to be a little bit outrageous with hair, clothes and makeup. Before we dive in to some of the most awesome Met Makeup looks, a little history / context is in order!
It’s hard not to extoll the virtues of the Beauty Blender. Used for applying and touching up makeup, the egg-shaped sponge was first developed by makeup artist Rea Ann Silva, who was looking for a way to make makeup look good on the unforgiving detail of high definition television.
If you’ve heard of color-correcting makeup before and think it’s not for you, I get it. Those yellow, green and peach tubes look horrifying! But here’s the deal – color-correcting is actually genius. By applying color correctors that are sheer and lightweight, they subtly brighten and correct your skin problems, so you can get away with LESS foundation and concealer! Color correction makeup will take your complexion to the next level – it will look more perfected & luminous, but not heavy.
Well, well, this is SOOOOOO exciting ladies! I’ll get straight to it – the biggest trend for makeup in 2018 is…drum roll…the return of the bold and daring 90’s makeup looks. And I LOVE me some alternative ideas – the effortless, edgy, coolness of grunge, goth and punk all mixed together with lashings of glitter. Put away the barely-there makeup looks, let’s get daring, let’s go all ‘90’s!
Do you ever see yourself in your Mom? Moms are the best, the most unselfish and loving women in the world, especially because she loves YOU unconditionally! But did you know that you can share a makeup look? Just because there is a generation between you doesn’t mean you can’t share some gorgeous, classic and flattering looks that suit you both perfectly.
