Obsessed with #OMBRE featuring #NYX

If you love ombre lips, you’ve got to get your hands on the NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks!! My favorites for everyday wear are “Cherry Skies” and “Vintage.” Once I got a few nearly the ENTIRE collection I found out they’re great for creating ombre looks.

Here are a few combinations you can ombre out to your heart’s desire!

For a subtle look combine “Vintage”and “Soft Spoken.” Start with “Vintage” around the outside. Then apply “Soft Spoken”inside, and blend with a lip brush.

 

 

For a glam look grab “Kitten Heels” and “Sandstorm.” Start with “Kitten Heels”around the outside. Then apply “Sandstorm” inside, and blend with a lip brush.

 

Reach for “Stone Fox”and “Cherry Skies” if you’re daring! Start with “Stone Fox” on the outside. Then apply “Cherry Skies” inside, and blend with a lip brush.

What are your favorite ombre looks — and what products do you use to create them? Let me know in the comments below!

#MatteNotFlat: All EYES on #Stila

I love, love, love, love, LOVE matte eyeshadows. There’s something super classy about them!! The thing is — many matte eye shadows can be chalky and flat when applied — and that certainly is NOT cute! I was cautiously optimistic when I spotted Stila’s “Eyes are the Window” palette series. My eyes were set on the “Mind” palette — but my wallet wasn’t set on the price!! I waited it out and, when Ulta slashed the price to $29 on Black Friday, destiny brought us together! 🙂 So — was it worth the wait??

#Perfect Crease Free Concealer

Concealer is the bane of my existence. It’s truly a love/hate relationship. I love highlighting and contouring—love, love, LOVE it! However, having a creased up mess under your eye halfway through the day is NOT cute lol

After trial and error, and the support of countless YouTube videos I have come up with a method that works (at least for me!). Click the read more tab for the details.
