Sweet Kisses

Because your kisses should always leave a mark! These candy inspired lip colors are a MUST HAVE this summer, especially since the season is halfway over – it’s seriously time to flaunt bright colors while we still can! Basic pinks and reds are nice, but no one wants to be basic! Try these deliciously mouth-watering candy colors that can be worn day or night!

BUBBLE GUM PINK – Bright neon pink lipstick is key this summer and looks super fresh and girly. It’s should be matte, especially because it’s hot out – wearing anything sticky is just a big “no” in August. We LOVE Mac’s “Candy Yum Yum”! As you can see from above, Rihanna wears it well and it looks amazing on anyone with a summer tan! Shop our favorite pinks below!

COTTON CANDY BLUE – Think outside the beauty box! If the blue lip color that was seen in Gucci’s Summer 2017 show was any indication, blue lipstick is definitely the next big trend in beauty. For lighter skin colors go for a lighter to raspberry blue shade like the ones below and for darker complexions, sapphire blue looks AMAZING!

RED SPRINKLES – As women, we love our traditional red lipsticks, and we’ve narrowed down the top shades that are best for this summer! We are loving Chanels “Rouge Rebel”, it’s as if Essie’s “Big Apple Red” nail polish became a lipstick! You definitely need this one if you don’t already have it in your make-up bag!

GUMMY BEAR ORANGE – Orange lipstick is a lot like orange gummy bears. It’s there, and you know it’s there, but you sift through all the other colors first and take the orange ones or simply leave them out. We wish this wasn’t the case for orange lipstick as well, but once you put it on you will be surprised by how lovely it looks on anyone! Orange is an awesome color on the lips because it is still in line with the basic pinks and reds that we wear but has more depth. It’s unique and powerful, regal and feminine. There are so many different shades and you can decide whether you want to lean more toward the pink/red side or the yellow side. Coral, apricot, reddish orange, blue orange, you name it! And if a bolder orange is too intimidating for you, try a lip stain! Benefit makes an AMAZING lip stain that we use almost DAILY!

 

TIP: IN ORDER TO HAVE PERFECT LIPSTICK, YOU WILL NEED TO PREPARE YOUR LIPS BEFORE APPLYING THE MAKE-UP. FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE STEPS BELOW!

  1. Exfoliate your lips with your toothbrush, gently working in a circular motion to brush off any dead or uneven skin. Don’t go too hard.
  2. Add moisture. I always like to do this step throughout the day and apply a tiny bit of vaseline, but you can put any kind of lip serum on that will hydrate your lips.
  3. Apply the rest of your makeup and then your lipstick.
  4. Blot lips on a piece of toilet paper. This is important, or else you will get it on your teeth and no one wants that.

BLUE BOMBETTE

When I think of blue eyeshadow I usually picture images from the 80s.. and it’s just not a flattering look. Dick Page, creator of the blue-eyed look for Marc by Marc Jacobs and Tess Gibberson, totally changed my mind using about the color blue on my lids. The trick, keep the rest of your makeup to a minimum and let your eyes stand out. If you’re still a little nervous about the blue, the best way to start implementing this trend is going for just an eyeliner. Either around the whole eye, just the top, or just the bottom. All create very different looks but are more subtle that going with a full lid of blue.

OSCAR’S BEST AND WORST DRESSED AWARDS GO TO….

I want to start off by saying I absolutely love all of these ladies, so this ISNT personal.  Lupita Nyong’o, Kate Hudson and Angelina Jolie all killed it on the Oscar red carpet this year.  As for Veerle Baetens and Whoopie Goldberg ::sigh:: SO disappointing.

US-OSCARS-ARRIVALSOne word… BREATHTAKING.  Lupita Nyong’o looked absolutely stunning in a pale blue, plunge-front Prada gown.  Hands down, Lupita was the most beautiful thing to ever walk the red carpet.  She’s becoming one of my favorite stars that I look forward to seeing on the red carpet.

Wether she’s wearing jeans and a tee or an elaborate gown, Kate Hudson’s signature look is,  the effortless fresh hollywood starlet .  She put a modern twist on old Hollywood in this metallic caped Atelier Versace gown.

Angelina Jolie couldn’t look bad if she wore a hello kitty jumpsuit (thats even worse than a garbage bag) She looked like a million dollars in a long sleeve fully embellished gown with sheer bodice and thin leather belt by Elie Saab Couture.86th Annual Academy Awards - ArrivalsI actually don’t have a problem with the actual dress.  My problem is this dress on Veerle Baetens.  It does absolutely NOTHING for her amazing figure.  She’s so beautiful and I’m such a fan, it was disappointing to see her choose this as the look for such an amazing moment.

Whoopie Goldberg…. I want to start off saying that I don’t think the normal rules apply to Whoopie.  She’s one of those people that we can expect to be quirky, BUT this is not ok.  If she got rid of the pearls and that awful button down I think she’d have a cool look that stayed true to her crazy style without looking like a complete disaster.
