Red Lip Rules

The hottest lip color just got hotter! The red lip has been around since the 1960’s. Religiously women use this as their beauty secret weapon. Whenever you need a beauty pick me up, or to add some ‘spunk” to a dull face, go with a “red lip”. However; this lip color does comes with a couple of rules. 

 

Commit to these “red lip rules’ and you will forever be a HOT beauty.

 

Red Lip RulesRule 1: Make sure your choice of “red lipstick” matches your skin tone. Of course it should not matter, but it does. Not everyone can pull off  the brightest red lipstick. Not everyone can pull off the dullest red lipstick. Make sure the one you wear, fits with your skin tone.

 

red lip rulesred lip rulesRule 2: When wearing a “red lip” keep your other make up colors toned down. This rule definitely applies when wearing a [fire engine] red lip. To many color clashes will throw your look off completely. Try keeping your face nude, let your red lip stand out on its own!

 

red lip rulesRule 3: Always re-touch your red lip when necessary. The biggest ‘beauty no” is a smeared lip! Especially when its a red lip. This lip color is a sight to behold.  Never be seen with a smeared or dull red lip. Make sure to have your re-touch kit handy; ie.. lipstick pencil and lipstick. The “red lip” has the reputation of being a show stopper! Represent it correctly, or you will be banned for life.

All The Right Details

face-makeup-foundation

Feature enhancement can either make you or break you. Adding all the right details to complete that hot make-up look is a must. So! what are the beauty editors saying about the specific details you should know? What are their magic tips for making the stars look beautiful and glamorous?​

When it comes to applying make-up , we do know that it is a job within itself. Have you ever had a bad make-up experience? Not the right foundation color, shadow, or lipstick? It just did not compliment your look. Somehow  it looked great on  Halle Berry, Beyonce or Kim Kardashian, but why can’t you pull it off?

Here are 5 important make-up tips every woman should know

1.Clean it-Use a facial cleanser in the morning to shed dead skin cells and oils that the skin so kindly tried to remove during the night, and repeat the ritual in the evening to keep to prevent your skin from build up. The skin must be a clean canvas.

2.Primer– Applying a great make-up primer is a must. No cracks or fading. Use a  non stick moisturizing primer before applying your make-up. It does wonders! The primer adds a special glow as well prevents a ghost face. Nars, Smashbox, Revlon and Mac have great make-up primer’s for any skin tone.

3. Apply It right!- Foundation application should never stop at the jaw-line. It does not matter how closely your chosen shade matches your skin tone. Use a makeup sponge to gently blend your foundation down your neck to ensure an even, natural-looking skin tone.

4. Balance it out- If you prefer a dramatic eye look, then balance that with neutral cheeks and a nude lip. The same goes for red lipstick. If you are trying to pull off a cherry-colored pout, then stick to neutral tones on the rest of your face.

5. Know your colors- Wearing the wrong colors for your skin tone can destroy your look. Colors that don’t suit your skin tone can make you look pale, washed out, or even give your skin a green tint.

Its all about the details. In order to have a successful make-up look, one must educate themselves on the best products to use. Get inspired!

Yes Yellow!

The 2013 Lip Pop!

On the hunt, for that perfect lip. We went under deep investigation. Our plan consisted of events, movie dates, and lots of laughter. We wanted to find the best lip pop that could stand the test of time and keep us looking stunning in 2013.

The texture, the moisture, the scents and colors, not to mention the lasting effects. How fun is it to just have your lips glowing and looking good at all times. We started out with 8, all did not make the cut, so we rather not name. The ones that made the cut, sold us at the first try.

If you ever want to have the perfect lip pop. You must carefully choose the right lip gloss. These top four choices is a must try. They provide all the qualities women need to have the perfect lip pop!

MAC:   Who doesn’t know about MAC they are one of the top sellers in a billion dollar industry. So of course you would not be surprised if we tell you the quality of their lip gloss is fabulous. The texture is thick and the moisture is long-lasting. Everyone woman has to own some MAC in their lifetime. MAC lip gloss is for the ladies of the night. The passionate colors with high gloss, adds that special attention to your lips. Try it!

NARS:    We see why NARS is an award winning cosmetic line! The lip gloss neutrals are intense. The texture is light but full of moisture. This is not a lip gloss you need to apply much of. Keep in mind that more than one layer starts to have a sticky effect. The main thing we like about NARS is their sheer colors. We have yet to see a cosmetic line match the neutrals. Light day? Not much lip gloss? NARS is your answer.

SMASHBOX:    This gloss has a long lasting effect. Not to mention the gorgeous colors. (In between) is what we will review this lip gloss. It lasted up to six hours without a re- apply. Texture was ok. Not bad at all . Color selections can be enhanced a little but we hear they have a fab 2013 collection coming out. If you want a gloss that will last for a long time. Smashbox is the answer.

LUCID:    Now lucid is the baby of the crew, but boy are they making an impact. This lip gloss actually reminds of MAC. The texture the moisture, and oh do we love the colors. The packaging is so cute. Created in a way where you can place it in your little clutch without the bulk showing. We see big things for lucid. We love the names of the line. Capri, San tropes, Aspen etc…. It might be safe to say this lip gloss caters to the all around the world type of lady. We love the idea.

There you have it. Our top four lip gloss picks. This project took us three months in the making. Beauty 101 is a lot of work.
