I’m back and I’m running wild. It’s been a while since I wrote a post but I’ve been doing a lot of makeup cleaning and organizing that I couldn’t wait to show you what I found at the bottom of my makeup drawer. [Read more…]
Now that Fall is upon us, I’ve been gathering all my fall shades in my nail polishes and my lipsticks. I often find myself asking “What color lipstick should I wear?” For those of you who don’t know, I normally put an outfit together based on the lip color that I choose. Since we’re also around the corner from Halloween, I though that I could throw in some Fall/Halloween colors into my outfits without looking like a hot mess.

Lady Danger has a reddish orange tone to it that gives you that sexy look while making it perfect for the Fall/Halloween theme with the orange tint that you get from it. You can easily pair this with neutral colors so that your outfit and accessories are not competing with each other.
I also paired it with a beautiful orange red/orange shade nail polish from e.l.f. cosmetics called Mango Madness. This shade of nail polish is a great alternative from the usual black nail polish (not that black nail polish isn’t sexy) that we use for Halloween but it doesn’t hurt to change it up a little with some vibrancy.

Red lipsticks are classic, timeless and here to stay forever. Every woman should have a favorite red lipstick as part of her makeup collection. You will not know the power of a red lip until you try it. You either love it or you hate it, but at least give it a try first. Not only does it instantly exudes glamour but confidence as well, plus it will transform and elevate your overall look like no other lipstick can. Who doesn’t want a lipstick that screams style, sexy, power and confidence all in one swipe? Count me in, please.
My go to red lipstick that I simply cannot live without is Ruby Woo by MAC. It’s a retro matte lipstick that will last all day long with only one application. When it comes to matte lipsticks I always prefer a brand by MAC because I have had better experiences with them, plus I find that the quality is a lot better than other brands that I’ve used in the past.
With that said, I want to run you through my very simple steps for my red lip application. Firstly, like I’ve said before in previous blogs, always prep your lips before wearing lipstick, especially with a matte lipstick. See my tips for beautiful pucker lips. Next, you want to add a little lip balm or chap stick to add moisture. Take a red lip liner. I use Redd by MAC and outline your lips and then you can apply your red lipstick. I also want to point out that you should never put red lipstick on without a mirror or in the car. Clean up your mistakes with a concealer for a more refined and flawless look and you’ll be ready to step out.
