Nude Lip Liners Are Trending

Nude Lip Liners Are Trending

Neutrals

Lately I’ve noticed that nude lip liners are trending so I thought I would recommend a few to try.

Of course we all know the reason why nude and natural lip liners are in fashion… Kylie Jenner! Yes her incredible pout has driven us all crazy with envy.

The trick of using a natural or nude colour lip liner is to deliberately draw over your lips. Many people are afraid to do this to begin with but trust me; once you’ve done it… you will always do it.

Everyone seems to always wear either clear gloss or bright colour lipstick but with no lip liner. Then I decided to try it… it’s opened up a different world!

When you wear lip liners, you instantly feel that your lips are fuller and a lot bigger. People will comment on how good you look and it’s true so be prepared for attention!

Who would have thought such a light coloured lip liner could make all the different to your outfit, style and mood. When you look good, you feel great. Your confidence is sky high and beyond.

Are you ready to take on the world with these sexy lip liners?  I’m sure you are!

Here’s a few nude lip liners that I would suggest you try out.

Lancome lip liner

Lancôme ‘Le Lipstique’ LipColoring Stick with Brush $25

Charlotte Tilbury

Charlotte Tilbury ‘Lip Cheat’ Re-Size & Re-Shape Lip Liner $22

Mac Lip Liner

M·A·C ‘Haute Dogs’ Lip Pencil $16.50

Cargo Lip Liner

CARGO Swimmables™ Lip Liner $18 – This is waterproof.

Handbag Heroes

Handbag Heroes

Neutrals

Having a few beauty items in your handbag can help to keep you fresh throughout the day. If you’ve got a small bag then you’ll only want to carry the essentials around with you. If you’re unsure as to what key items to carry with you, consider these following products.

Hand sanitizer

This is a practical item to have, especially during the winter months. It will keep your hands clean and germ free. It’s also handy for cleaning up any beauty bits. Bath and Body Works have some luscious mini sanitizers that come in a range of delicious scents, and they fit into your handbag too.

A powder compact

If you have oily skin, a powder compact is a must have. It will help to refresh your makeup and hide any oil coming through your base makeup. Try using a pressed product like Clinique Stay Matte Sheer Pressed Powder, which has a sponge for easy application.

A lipstick

If you want a quick update to your makeup look, applying lipstick will make a difference. It’s also ideal for changing up your makeup before after work drinks, or if you are heading out to dinner straight from work. Try YSL Volupte Sheer Candy, a glossy sheer color that’s highly wearable. Alternatively, opt for Sephora Luster Matte Lip Color for a long lasting lip shade.

Fragrance

A fragrance will keep you smelling great throughout the day. You don’t need to carry around a large bottle of perfume. Instead, use a rollerball or travel size version, such as Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Rollerball.

A nail file

Having a nail file in your bag will help during any nail breakage emergencies. Daimancel Mini Nail File is the perfect size to fit into any handbag.

A facial mist

If you have a spacious handbag, a facial mist makes a great addition. When the weather is hot and humid, using a facial mist will keep your skin feeling cool and fresh. First Aid Beauty Vitamin Hydrating Mist has an alcohol free formula, so it won’t dry your skin out. It will energize your complexion, and it can also be used to set your makeup. Evian Facial Spray is also a convenient facial mist to have, refreshing your skin from heat or dry air, as well as keeping your makeup looking fresh.

A hair brush

If you are going to get caught in the rain, wind, or even heat, a hair brush is a must have tool in your handbag. The Sephora Luxe Combo Travel Brush won’t take up much space in your bag, and it’ll smooth your hair in a minute.

A lip balm

If you’re suffering from a cold, or your skin becomes affected by the weather easily, a lip balm is the perfect solution. An effective balm will nourish, protect and soothe any dryness. The Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment is a great choice for any beauty lover.

Fall Beauty Trends

Fall Beauty Trends

Neutrals

Fall is always an exciting time of year for beauty lovers. With Christmas on the horizon, you can expect many stunning beauty trends to follow. If you want to stay up to date with everything that’s happening on the beauty scene, then you might be interested in the trends for Fall 2015.

fall-beauty

Oh so flush!

This fall, you can expect to see less contouring and barer faced looks, as you are going to see flushed skin, instead of highlighting. If you love the typical English Rose look, or just a hint of blush then this is the perfect trend for you.

How to do it – keep your base natural and apply just a small amount of blush on to the apples of your cheeks. You could use a cheek tint, if it’s easier for you to apply.

What to useBenefit Benetint Lip & cheek Stain, Clinique Cheek Pop, Ben Nye Powder

Go gothic!

Gothic trends were all over the runway earlier this year, and it’s an easy trend to try out. Opt for dark lips and matte skin, or go for thick black liner.

How to do it – go for either lips or eyes as applying both dark lipstick and black liner will appear too heavy.

What to useClinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey, Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick in Blackmail, Kevyn Aucoin Liner

Back to the eighties!

An ode to the 80’s was a key trend at fall fashion week. Super bright eyeshadow is something that you might not want to try out, so opt for dark nude lips or shimmery eyes instead.

How to do it – wear a nude lip, or go for glittery, slightly metallic eye shades.

What to useUrban Decay Revolution Lipgloss in Kinky, Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Bahama, Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Cosmic

Smokey eyes with a twist!

Smokey eyes are always a popular trend at this time of year, especially for wearing in the evening. This fall, opt for dark grey or navy shades instead of brown and blacks.

How to do it – keep your lips simple and wear a dark, smokey eye with lots of mascara.

What to useMAC Eyeshadow in Deep Truth, Nars Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in Giove, Make Up Geek Eyeshadow in Stealth

Simple shadow!

If you lead a busy lifestyle then this is one trend you can get on board with. Eyes are kept really basic, with just a simple wash of color. Opt for a light or dark nude and swipe all over the lid of the eye.

How to do it – apply just one layer of color on the eyes. Keep mascara looking natural, and opt for a light pink or nude lip.

What to useMAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Vintage Selection, Stila Eyeshadow in Kitten, Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette

Hollywood red!

Red lips make a striking makeup look. Anyone can wear a red lip, you just need to find perfect shade and texture for you.

How to do it – scrub your lips beforehand and moisturize, especially if you’re wearing a matte red lip. Keep the rest of your makeup basic and focus your attention on the lip area.

What to useMAC Lipstick in Ruby Woo, Smashbox Lipstick in Legendary, Clinique Chubby Stick Lip Color in Mightiest Maraschino

MAC Cosmetics need no introduction in the beauty world and it’s easy to see why many people are huge fans of the brand. With a wide range of professional products that can be used by the everyday beauty lover, there is a product to suit everyone. Whether its foundations or lipsticks, here is a guide to some of the products and finishes you’ll find at your local MAC counter.

Foundations can be difficult to find but knowing what type of coverage and finish you prefer will help you to discover the perfect base for you. MAC offer several types of foundation with the standouts including;

MAC blushes are hugely popular and choosing the right type of blush will depend on your personal preference.

Luscious Lipsticks in Red & Pink

Luscious Lipsticks in Red & Pink

Neutrals

Many people are afraid of trying out a new colour on their lips. I don’t understand this but each to their own. I guess it’s out of their comfort zone or maybe they know what suits their face and what doesn’t.

For whatever reason, I would still try and mix it up a little and wear something bright and bold every so often. Nobody wants to become predictable you know!

Red & Pink Lips

 

Red and pink lipsticks are trending at the moment so now is the time to have some fun with your lips!

If you like red, go for a bold sexy matte or glossy finish. If you fancy pink to make the boys wink, then choose a gorgeous girly pink that flatters your skin tone.

I love to have a few red and pink lipsticks in my bag and when I have my glam days, I like to wear either one of them. In fact, I’ve even tried to mix them and it looks so good with a pink outline with the red colour in the centre. Everyone always comments on how good my lips look!

I would recommend spending more on lipsticks if you can. You can really tell the difference between a cheap and a more expensive lipstick.

Here are a few red lipsticks that I would recommend:

Mac Prolong Wear Lipcreme in True Red $20.00 Do you want a long lasting lipstick? Go for this sexy number.

Mac Lipstick in Lady Danger $17.00 Do you want a coral/red tone? Then this is perfect for you.

L’Oreal Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Red Lipcolor Julianne’s Red $8.99 Matt colour with a soft velvet finish.

And here’s a few gorgeous pink lipsticks I would recommend:

Mac Lipmix in Matte Magenta $15.00 Matt creamy formula that adds a touch of colour to your lips.

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor $7.49 To be honest they have so many shades of pink; you’re bound to find one that you like.

Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour $29.00 I’m in love with Laura Mercier products at the moment and this is brand new! This looks a lovely colour… Orchid Pink.
