THE TRICK TO PULLING OFF PINK EYESHADOW TREND

It’s easier than you think.

If there is one trend you want to try out this year, it’s going to be the pink eyeshadow trend. From pink winter coats, to candy-colored eyes and lips, to pink suiting, bubblegum hues are going to be just about everywhere. The pink eyeshadow trend has been big throughout awards season on Lily Collins, Emma Stone, and Sophia Bush. So I thought, let’s give this pink eyeshadow trend a go!

I dabbled in this trend slowly with a light pale pink lid a few months ago, and decided to go for it this week with pretty pink peepers courtesy of Too Faced’s Sugarpop palette in Bubblegum. I love the rich shade of this shadow and how it pops against my fair skin. For the lips, I adore this opaque pink gloss from Laura Mercier in Petal Pink. It’s moisturizing like a gloss but has the pigment of a lipstick, brilliant. The top I’m wearing is vintage and I figured I’d wear something neutral in this sea of pink 🙂 read more

PRETTY PEACH MAKEUP TUTORIAL 

Sweet as a Georgia peach! Peach makeup has been trending a lot lately thanks to brands like Too Faced’s Sweet Peach palette and Kylie Cosmetics’s Royal Peach palette. Personally, I adore a peachy makeup look, which is why I put together a quick and easy pretty peach makeup tutorial for you guys. For starters, I think peach super flattering on a variety of skin tones, ranging from super pale like me to dark. And because peach consists of soft, warm tones, it creates a really youthful glow that makes you look and feel fresh. Does anyone else remember that pretty peach blush by Benefit called CORALita? I was obsessed with using it when I was in college and this totally brings me back to those days. read more

THE BEST, CHEAP RED LIPSTICKS

If there is one thing that has remained the same in my life over the course of almost two decades, it’s my affinity for red lipstick. There is something about a quick coat of brilliant red lacquer that can transform an entire look and attitude. Above all, red lipstick makes me feel daring and confident, and that is priceless. You know what’s even better? Finding a cheap red lipstick that you love.

Over the years, I have had reds in and out of my life. Some were just quick fixes, others stayed past their welcome (this one red matte lip I used to use I guess wore off really easily and left a red lip liner ring around my mouth, which no one bothered to tell me until I was at the post office one day…) and others have withstood the test of time. read more

THIS IS THE PERFECT SHADE OF BURGUNDY LIPSTICK

Don’t believe me? Try to tell me this isn’t the best shade of burgundy lipstick!

What better way to get dolled up for date night than with burgundy lipstick? Burgundy lipstick is less expected than red, and compliments a wide variety of skin tones. And, it makes your teeth look white!  I like my lips how I like my wine–bold and dark. There is something about a crimson-colored, burgundy lip that is a bit edgier than a classic red lipstick… slightly more daring and risqué, if you will. I j’adore wearing this shade this time of year. read more

HOW TO MAKE 1980s MAKEUP MODERN

Get ready, because they ’80s are going to be back in a big way this year. And, yes, that includes the infamous 1980s makeup. Blue eyeshadow, pink lipstick, and big hair (and dare I say perms?) are making their way back into fashion. I noticed the trend of an ’80s revival beginning last year with cult obsessions like Stranger Things, and knew instantly that the 80s would make it’s way into the fashion set. The ’90s have been around long enough, and I’m actually excited to play with different fashion nods to the decade that I was born in! read more
