My Weekly Fave

Hey my lovelies!

This week, I’ve been getting a lot more into wearing highlighter or “luminizer”, and wanted to share with you one of my favorites. I’ve heard only a FEW people talk about this brand before. And I’m more than shocked.

But the weekly favorite, first runner-up, isssssss………

Femme Couture “Get Radiant” Complexion Enhancer!!

This is a liquid product, that really feels silky and light on the skin. When you blend it out (you only need a little), it gives a fair sheen. You can’t really see it on the pic, but the product inside reflects different colors of pink, maybe touches of gold, that gives your skin just a natural shine.

As you can see from my (heavy) swatch, it’s just a bit lighter than my own skin tone, with a whipped, mousse-y texture. You can mix it with a drop of your foundation, BB Cream, or even liquid concealer, to give your skin an allover glow. It smells really nice too, kind of like sugar.

You can get these at Sally Beauty Supply. You get a 1.3 oz bottle, which is a more-than-decent amount of highlighter. I’ll probably STILL be using this when I’m old lady…I don’t expect to run out anytime soon!

Anyway, I hope you guys are having a good day! Talk to you soon.

How-To: PERFECT Red Lips

Red lips are a truly timeless, amazingly sexy trend. But now, according to Vogue: “Fuchsia is the new red.” Apparently it’s fresher, younger and more modern. But say WHAAT?

In my opinion, nothing can beat a kick-ass red lipstick.

So here’s what you’ll need to achieve that perfect red pout:

  • A lip conditioner of your choice (Chapstick, salve, ect.)
  • One red lipliner
  • A red lipstick that you adore
  • Optional: A gloss

Okay, so the first step is easy. Just soften up those lips! If you have any dead skin or icky stuff like that, exfoliate first with a wet cloth, toothbrush, or lip scrub.

The next part is a bit trickier. Lining your pucker and filling it in. Gahhhd, this is my least favorite part. I always end up making one edge too thin, the other too thick, or drawing outside my actual lip line. But it’s possible to achieve. Just take your time! I like to soften out the edges of my lips when I draw them, to make my lips look fuller, softer, and more youthful and plump.

So now, fill in your lips with the lipstick of your choice! You can use a brush, or apply it straight from the tube. In my opinion, lip brushes are a bit too fussy.

NOW. You’re sort of done, unless you want to apply gloss. I LOVE gloss on a red lip. It makes your lips look so juicy and seductive! If it comes in a squeezy-tube thingy, you can put a little on your finger and gently spread it on top of the lipstick. You don’t want to disturb any product underneath the gloss!

And you’re done. Congrats :}
