Kitten Face

Kitten Face

The Government is shut down….let’s talk about makeup. With the dark mood going on across the country, I’d thought I’d share a bright, clean look featuring Stila’s famous eyeshadow in Kitten. It really doesn’t get any better for a shimmery shade than Kitten. I highly suggest you try it out if you haven’t before. Here’s a happy look to brighten up your dark day! Meow!

National Lipstick Day: My Top 5

Top 5 Lipsticks

Top 5 Lipsticks

So apparently, today is National Lipstick Day. I don’t know who makes these things up but, I’ll play. I thought, to celebrate, I’d do a quick breakdown of my 5 all time favorite lipsticks…and honorable mention lip product to boot!
From Left to Right:
MAC Freckletone – This was my first MAC Lipstick and it’s been a staple of mine ever since. It’s a Lustre formula so it’s not got sparkle but a great deal of shine. I think it’s a perfect nude for any skin tone. Also, depending on what lip liner you are wearing, it takes on a whole new identity.
Dior Rouge Dior 434 Samarcande Brown – This lipstick holds a special place in my heart because it was my wedding day lipstick. Don’t let the ‘Brown’ in the name fool you, it’s really a gorgeous color. Plus, it stayed ALL NIGHT LONG.
Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake – I love all of the Revlon Lip Butters. They have the most awesome texture and just make your lips look and feel plush. When I’m looking for a great ‘my lips but better’, quick out the door lip product, I always grab for this shade.
Maybelline Vivid in Vivid Rose – If you want your lips to BAM!, you need this lipstick. All the Vivids are SUPER opaque and come in some fab colors. This one is my favorite because it’s a super bright pinky red. I think I’ll wear it today!
MAC Red – I’ve talked about this before. It’s perfect. That’s all
Bonus Item: Rimmel Show Off in Nude Eclipse. I have been on the hunt for the perfect fleshy nude lip that did not make me look dead. This is it. It’s not technically a lipstick but it for sure deserved a mention.

So happy Lipstick Day! Rock a Fierce Lip!

Naked Week: Day 2


Day 2

So for day two of my foray into the UD Naked Basics Palette I decided to go for a fresh faced look with pops of pink. I only used two of the shades from the palette and only used a BB Cream on my face so the entire look was super quick and easy.

Day 2 Eye Look Breakdown:
I primed eye area with my MAC Concealer to even out the skin since I was going to be using very light shades. On my lid I used W.O.S. to give nice wash of color and Naked 2 in the crease to give some definition. Next I lined my top lash line with my Too Faced 3 Way Lash Lining Tool and lined the bottom waterline with Rimmel ScandalEyes in Nude. A few coats of CoverGirl Clump Crusher Mascara in Brown on the top and bottom lashes sealed this super easy and natural look. I like to think that it’s like my eyes, but better!

On the rest of my face:
Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream in Fair/Light
Benefit “That Gal” Brightening Face Primer
Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Correcting Powder in Translucent
Physicians Formula Happy Booster Blush in Pink
Wet N’ Wild Reserve Your Cabana Highlighter
Mary Kay Brow Pencil in Blonde
Mary Kay Brow Gel
Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake

We’ll see what I come up with for Naked Humpday tomorrow!
