Try the Trend: Bright Pink Lips

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 08/14/2013 - 4:10 PM

Just because summer is (sadly) coming to a close, it doesn’t mean that you can’t still rock some of the best hot weather trends. One of our favorites, bright pink lips, can actually be worn year round! Whether you’re daring enough to go all the way or just want a subtle hint of color, there’s a lipstick or lip gloss for everyone!

If you want to try the trend, but aren’t quite ready to take on completely hot pink lips quite yet, a gloss or barely there lipstick is the way to go. Nars’ Lipgloss in Easy Lover is an ultra-sheer, high-shine glaze that will give you a pretty wash of color. The GloMinerals Lip Stick in Raspberry from Glominerals will also give a fresh pop of pink, without the glossy finish. This delicate take on the trend looks great with a bronze smoky eye or jet black winged eye liner!

For those who want a little more than just sheer, but a little less than full-coverage, Korres’ Cherry Lip Gloss in Fuchsia or Lancome’s L’Absolu Rouge in Rose Chimere will be right for you. Cherry Lip Gloss in Fuchsia has a mid-level color payoff, high-shine, and is formulated with hydrating cherry oil, whereas L’Absolu Rouge in Rose Chimere is a creamy, not quite hot pink lipstick with a less shiny finish. Either of these products will look gorgeous muted metallic silver eye shadow.

Now, if you’re fully ready to dive into the bright pink lipstick trend, try Max Factor’s Max Wear Lip Color in Raging Sea by it self or paired with MAC’s Creemesheen Glass in Loud & Lovely. Both options are bright enough on their own, but when worn together, you’ll be attracting attention to your mouth for all the right reasons! Max Wear Lip Color in Raging Sea is a double ended, long-wear lipstick that can be worn matte or glossy. Creemesheen Glass in Loud & Lovely has a very high shine and full-coverage bright pink color payoff. These will both look best with minimal makeup.

How daring are you? Which bright pink lip will you try?


The Perfect Red Pout

Posted by Anonymous on Thu, 05/02/2013 - 6:24 PM

There isn’t much that can top a red lip in terms of sex appeal, but it’s always such a pain to keep up with throughout the night. Long-wear lipstick gets too dry, gloss bleeds everywhere, and lipstick fades away – so what’s a girl to do? Follow these four simple steps and the perfect red pout can be yours!


1) In order to prevent bleeding and fading around the center of lips, apply a lip liner in a shade similar to your lipstick. We like Paula Dorf’s Lip Liner in Sultry. Make sure to fill in the entire lip, not just the perimeter.


2) Using a brush, such as the Eye/Lip Brush from Youngblood, carefully apply a base layer of lipstick. Chanel’s Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour in Gabrielle is a gorgeous classic red.


3) Very gently apply a layer of a translucent powder. This works really well if you lightly place a tissue over your lips and then tap the powder on, creating a sheet of protection.


4) For the final step, apply another coat of Chanel’s Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour in Gabrielle using the Eye/Lip Brush from Youngblood.


By filling the entire lip in with liner, the first layer of lipstick has something to hold onto, the powder seals it in, and you’re left with the perfect red pout that lasts all night!
