With fall here that means it is time to step up my beauty game! I always have had a tough time with makeup but as I have been getting older, I have found my favorites, my likes + my dislikes…so I rounded up my favorites + the products I am dying to try!
My favorite time of year is just around the corner (and no, I am not talking about Christmas, my Birthday or summer time in general…yes I have a lot of favorite times throughout the year haha) BUT…I am talking about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!
It’s just a few days away and I will be rounding up some of my favorite products from various categories and today starts with…Beauty Buys! I am slowly beginning to play with different kinds of makeup and beauty products and these are some of the products I am lusting after <3
One of the hottest beauty trends out there today is specially curated boxes of sample sized products delivered in a pretty little package to your door each month. While I’m all about this trend, because come on what gal doesn’t like a mid-month surprise of cosmetics, there are simply so many companies out there running with this idea!
I’ve been subscribing to Birchbox for a while and recently through a suggestion from another blogger, decided to subscribe to Ipsy as well! Both cost $10 a month, both deliver great brand name products to your door, and both put a huge smile on my face every time the package arrives 🙂
Nothing pulls a look together better than a great red lip! Whether your a lipstick kinda gal or you prefer a tinted gloss, a red lip can instantly transform your look and make your lips so much more kissable! Think about it, what is sexier than a woman applying lipstick or lip gloss, puckering up and having that feeling of satisfaction once she is finished…umm nothing!
As Valentines Day approaches, here is my roundup of my favorite Red lip colors coming in a variety of shades and prices…making the classic red lip and easy ‘Do’ for every gal this season! Whether it’s a girls night out or a hot date night, trust me you can never go wrong with a chic red lip!
While I’m not afraid to admit I tend to always go for a ‘nude’ or neutral gloss, every once in a while I feel inspired to spice things up with a shot of red. I’ve always been envious of the girls who had the confidence to pull of a red lip…I was constantly worried that red simply didn’t match with my skin tone or feared looking like a clown or an old lady, but the trick to a perfect red lip is easy…find what shade works best for you. It can be a 99 cent brand or a designer brand, doesn’t make a difference, not all reds look good on everyone…find what works for you!
My personal favorite is ‘Red Haute‘ from Ulta…just the name won me over and the shade suits me perfectly (the one I’m applying in the pictures 😉 )!
Check out some great shades of red below and spice up your girls night or date night! 🙂
