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

HOW TO GET THE NO MAKEUP MAKEUP LOOK:

The no makeup makeup look has been around forever, and it’s also not going anywhere anytime soon. As long as their are minimalists and French women in this world, no makeup makeup will always be a thing. And while I don’t consider myself a minimalist in any sense of the word (I’ve been trying, but my closet room begs to differ) or French (unless studying abroad in Paris counts?) I am quite simple when it comes to my makeup routine.

As I’m sure you know, nailing the no makeup makeup look is actually a lot harder then you might think. To look like your wearing little to no makeup when you actually are is a challenge and requires some skill. So, I’ve put together my top 9 tips along with my favorite products that you can shop below! read more

3 CUTE HAIRSTYLES FOR BANGS

Why does it always seem like women are talking about bangs? They’re either thinking about cutting them, just got them, thinking about growing them out, or complaining about the grow out–am I right? And then once you’ve got them, the conversation makes a quick turn on how to style them. What are some cute hairstyles for bangs? Luckily, I’ve got three easy and cute hairstyles for bangs that I know you’re going to love.

I’ll confess, I’m right there too. I have been talking about getting bangs for probably upwards of three years. I know, I’m very indecisive when it comes to my hair… and picking a place to eat. So as the story goes, my sister decided to get bangs and instantly I knew I had to get them too, because I couldn’t let her have the coolest hair cut in the family 🙂 We both see Nick Flores at Sally Hershberger salon and he always does such an amazing job with my hair, and this bang experiment was no exception. read more
