MAC New York Apple

Ello, Curly-Fries! ❤

I’m SUPER surprised that hardly anyone talks about this lipstick, so I thought I should share its amazing awesomeness with y’all!!

FIRST OFF, it’s one of the most sultry, wearable reds I’ve ever seen, and it’s a frost finish!

P.S: When I say frost, I don’t mean like pure chrome. It’s soft, and in all the right places!

But anyway, the color’s unique. On my skin, it really looked like a juicy, dark-berry red. NO glitter detected, even though it’s pretty sparkly in the bullet, just a light “glossy” look in the center of my bottom lip and a little on my top lip.

I have a couple other MAC Frost shades, and some can be a little dry. This one was not DRY, in fact, it sat quite comfortably.

To be honest…I bought this shade on an impulse. When I got it in the mail, my first thought was: “Oh gosh, another red lipstick. Great.” I mean, I already have MAC Red so I thought I was set…but this is more subtle.

It’s subtle..yet captivating! I like how it has a touch of mauve-sparkle along with a soft golden tone, it’s complex and it shows!

I recommend you check it out…fo’ serious. It’s great.

Inspired Outfit

Today, because I was very bored, I decided to piece together an “inspired” outfit. An inspired outfit is basically a look that someone or someTHING inspired me to make!

I just watched “My Week With Marilyn.” Marilyn Monroe is such a classic beauty icon, and wore a lot of gorgeous things. (Short review on the movie: The actress played her extremely well! Check it out when you have the chance!:} )

So, first off, I chose a swimsuit, not a dress, for a more beachy look.

Image

It’s the “Magicsuit Solid Gabby One-Piece Swimsuit” from Soma.  It just has that vintage pin-up feel, and reminds me a lot of one that Marilyn wore! Marilyn+Monroe+black+bathing+suit

Next, I picked out some high heels! It’s all about the shoes, ladies!

Who could rock heels with a swimsuit? Marilyn could!Image

I know everything looks very “basic black”, but Marilyn was the epitome of classic. These are the “High Heel Platform Pumps” from Peltz Shoes.

And last, I chose a pair of black, vintage cat-eye sunglasses from RetroCitySunglasses.   Image

Add some red lipstick, and that’s the cherry on top of a fabulous outfit. ❤

(I like to use MAC’s “MAC Red”.)

Hopefully this outfit wasn’t too boring for you guys!

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:

Image

  • 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 :}
