Half & Half!

A little makeup can make your eyes brighter and and give your face more definition! The right side of my face I put on foundation, bronzer, and a little bit of blush. My right eye has a nude eyeshadow and a light line of eyeliner on my top lid and on my waterline, topped off with some mascara! And lastly, I have lip liner and lipstick on the right side of my mouth.

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.

Going Nude

The great thing about a nude lip is that it works for every occasion and every outfit. It adds the final touch of completion by defining the lips in an effortless way. And let’s be honest, the best makeup is the kind that enhances your existing features by just making them a bit more pronounced and eye-catching.

Below are some of our favorite Nude Lipsticks on some of our favorite clients!

Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil – Honey Berry

This product is my all time favorite nude lipstick. It’s a long-lasting matte lipstick, but it doesn’t feel like every other matte lipstick out there. It still has moisture to it so you don’t feel like your lips are drying up and cracking. This is because Bite Beauty uses a hydrating formula that is infused with all natural food-grade ingredients, which means you can literally eat this stuff it’s so good!

MAC Viva Glam Lipstick

MAC’s Viva Glam is an oldie but goodie. It has a lustre finish giving you that simple sheen of lipstick while maintaining a natural look. Who doesn’t love a staple MAC product to carry in their purse at all times?

Kylie Cosmetic Lip Kits can be a hit or miss for some people as the formula used can dry out the lips. A tip for this issue it putting on a light layer of chapstick about 5 minutes prior to putting on the liquid lipstick. This maintains the moisture in your lips while capitalizing on the high-pigmented lipstick. Not to mention that these liquid lipsticks stay on your lips forever! You’ll rarely even need to touch up.

My favorite color is Dolce K, especially for those with a darker complexion!

Ready For A Night Out!

You don’t always need a special occasion to get your makeup done and strut your stuff! Sometimes a night out with the girls is exactly what you need, and having your makeup done is the icing on the cake. The beautiful Shannon was pampered and polished before heading into the city – doesn’t she look amazing?!

IMG_0379I used Urban Decay’s Naked Palette 2 on her eyes:

  • Whole lid: half baked
  • Crease: snakebite
  • Outer corners: blackout
  • Inner corners: chopper
  • Brow bone: bootycall
  • Stila Smudge Pot Liner (top lid)
  • Smashbox Always Sharp Eyeliner (water line)
  • Ardell eyelashes – 111 Black
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel

For her beautiful skin I used Debra Macki Sunlit Beige Concealer, Debra Macki Foundation, Too Faced Translucent Powder, & Palladio Baked Blush-Atlantic.

And to top it off, for a subtle lip I used:

  • Debra Macki Lipstick Wink
  • Debra Macki Lip Pencil Le Rose
