  • I’m Currently Obsessed With…Dark Lip Trend

    I can’t get enough of the dark lip trend that has beauty editors across the globe dialing in favors from their favorite beauty PR reps. The dark lip is HUGE for fall which means you’re going to have to find the right shade for your skin tone. Here are some simple tips on how to indulge in this decadent lip trend:

    • If you are light skinned, look for a deep plum shade. Your skin tone will showcase the contrast of light vs dark in the most stunning way so go for a rich deep shade that will give you the drama you seek.
    • If you are medium/tan, look for a dark crimson or cranberry tone that will give you a gorgeous rich look without going too gothic.
    • If you are dark or deep, look for a stunning deep magenta or deep red tone for that sensational lip that will stop traffic.
    • Be sure to go for a semi-matte or a cream texture over the glossy look. Glossy dark lips may come off a bit campy – think Halloween.
    • Prep lips before applying by using a good sugar scrub or for at-home spa treatment take some brown sugar or raw sugar and rub vigorously until dead skin is removed from the lip area. Prime with a lip primer or lip treatment.
    • Dark lip colors demand lip liner for a precise and accurate application. Invest in a lip liner that is the exact same shade as your deep lip color.
    • To create a flawless lip, try using a lip brush over applying the lip color directly from the tube to the lip.

    Once you flash this gorgeous lip, you’ll be happy you stepped into the dark side.

These two items hit stores February 15th and will be available until the end of March.

  • I’m Currently Obsessed With…Bobbi Brown 20th Anniversary Lip Palette

    Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, 20th Anniversary Lip Palette, $60,

    I heart lip palettes. They are fantastic when you want to be able to change up your lip look and not need to carry 20 different lipsticks or lipglosses in your purse. The Bobbi Brown 20th Anniversary Lip Palette is a collection of twenty shades. The first ten shades are all classic shades that were created back in 1991 while the second group of ten shades are new shades created specifically for the palette. This palette is a great gift for a birthday or special occasion or just a wonderful investment to make as every girl needs as many lipstick options as possible at her fingertips.
