Smoky Eyes and a Bold Lip!

One of my favorite looks is a matte smoky eye and a deep red lip. Pairing this with an AMAZING black and nude dress and a killer smile just makes it absolutely perfect!

On this lovely lady I used Smashbox’s Full Exposure Palette, Too Faced’s Boudoir Eyes Soft & Sexy Eye Shadow Palette, Smashbox Black Jet Set Waterproof Liner and Ardell Lashes. And on her lips is Maybelline’s Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color (Divine Wine).

How gorgeous does she look!?

Bride Knows Best

The makings of a beautiful bride:
Hair
Makeup
Radiating happiness!

This beautiful bride knew exactly what she wanted when it came to her makeup. She wanted something a little more dramatic than natural, but not quite smoky on her eyes. And what the bride wants, the bride gets!

To accomplish her dream eye make-up, we used a matte warm chocolate brown on her upper lid with a darker matte brown and and a matte violet in her crease. On her lid we applied a warm beige  and blended the entire eyelid for a flawless transition. And as the bride requested, a slight wing completed the eyelid makeup!

A Little Shine Never Hurts

We all know matte lips are definitely more popular these days. Matte lipsticks stay on a lot longer and don’t smudge easily ,making them a great choice for long wear. But wearing a little shine and gloss now and then is always an exciting change!screen-shot-2017-01-31-at-8-13-56-pm

One of my favorite gloss lipsticks is Stila’s Stay All Day Vinyl Lip Gloss. This lip gloss is ultra pigmented and long lasting, while still being incredibly moisturizing. This means you get the burst of color all day while not having to worry about drying out your lips!

Color in photo is Fuchsia Vinyl.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!

 

screen-shot-2017-01-24-at-1-26-22-pmIf you haven’t tried the True Cream Aqua Bomb by belif, I highly suggest you do so ASAP! This gel/cream is by far my favorite skin product. It’s super light weight and doesn’t have a thick or creamy texture like most face moisturizers. It’s more of a gel-based cream that refreshes and hydrates your skin while providing a cooling sensation. It’s the perfect morning face moisturizer to use after you wash your face, because that cooling sensation helps wake you up and feel rejuvenated for the day!

It also works great for minimizing pores and improving skin elasticity. And don’t worry, the True Cream Aqua Bomb works for any type of skin whether you have oily, dry, or combination skin. Don’t take our word for it, try it out!
