How to Find the Best Lip Color

Get Excited!  Get Excited!  Let's talk about lip color...  Did you know the ideal neutral lip color is like the perfect pair of jeans?  It is a basic that you can dress up or down, and it will always look great on you.

Put it in neutral. The most versatile lipstick you can win is a shade that’s just a bit brighter than your natural lip color. It will even out and define your lips the way a subtle coat of mascara draws attention to your eyes. For some people, that color is a peachy brown or rosy pink; for African-American woman, it might be eggplant. Keep in mind that neutral lipstick shouldn’t be the color of concealer (a look that only works on the runway) and that a matte lipstick that is lighter than your natural lip color will wash out your face.

Try it right. Use the middle of your lower lip as a guide when looking for the right color, and try lipstick on in the daylight for the most accurate assessment. If you’ve tested more than three or four shades, take a break—your lips will be strained. You may also need to find a new color if you’ve been out in the sun a lot, since your lips might be darker.

Know yourself. As a makeup artist, I learned quickly that the color of your lips affects the way lipstick looks. If you see your friend wearing a great color, don’t assume it will be right for you. Her shade might look ashy or muddy on your lips.

Mix it up. Every season has its lipstick trend, and just because your perfect color is pinky, beige or neutral, that doesn’t mean you can’t wear deep burgundy. Apply one coat of wine, burgundy, or any other color you want to try on top. Even the craziest lipstick shade can be adjusted to suit your coloring.

5 Steps to Flawless Skin

Hey Everybody!  Get Excited!  I'm back with another blog.  Did you know using a foundation brush is excellent because they insure you don't use too much product?  Let's talk about how to obtain flawless skin...

Here's 5 Steps to Flawless Skin

Tip 1: Primer your skin
Using a primer is like wearing a slip under your dress…it smooth's everything out and hides your imperfections.

Tip 2: Know your skin type before selecting a formula
Foundation comes in all forms, and should be selected based in skin type. Drier skin types should wear a moisture-base formula. Oily or acne-prone should wear an oil-controlling formula. A natural, mineral-rich foundation is great for any skin type.

Tip 3: Choose the right tools
Applying foundation is a personal preference and each method creates a different finish. For liquid foundations, using your finger creates a sheer look, while the Foundation Brushes produces a very smooth seamless finish. For powder makeup, use the Round Buff Brush for even, all-over coverage.

Tip 4: Apply concealer over foundation
Applying concealer over foundation allows for better coverage and prevents the concealer from getting swept away. Using a full-coverage formula will instantly conceal dark circles, lines and wrinkles, while reducing puffiness and redness.

Tip 5: Set your look with powder
Powder is a great way to complete your look. Keep it very light use a fluffy Powder Brush to dust a lightweight formula.
