Go Nude for New Year's!

Nude Lips!
Here is how to get a nice natural looking nude lip.

Cover your lips with a thin layer of foundation. Line with a nude lip liner. Add a nude pearly lipstick such as Revlon Caramel Glace. 
Add a bit of bronzer to your cheeks, nose and chin for color. Do your eyes smoky charcoal for some drama.

Please note: Revlon is now on the animal testing list. It wasn't when this was written but it is now.

Party Lips

T'is the season for parties! How is a girl to keep her lipstick on with all that eating and drinking? 

Start by exfoliating your lips. Wet you lips, then use a warm wet washcloth to gently massage the peeling skin off of your lips. Apply a lip balm and blot it off with a tissue. Apply a lip stain such as Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain. Try Passion. Now add a highly pigmented lipstick such as Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick. Try Pink Velvet. Blot lips by pressing them together with a tissue in between. Apply a second layer of lipstick. You can also try a liquid lip color such as Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Liquid lipstick. 

Please note: Revlon is now on the animal testing list. It wasn't when this was written but it is now.

Have a Beautiful Day!

Katy Perry Purr

Purr. I love this cat bottle! It would be a great gift for a cat lover! The scents included in this eau de parfum are citrus, peach, apple, green bamboo, jasmine, freesia, Bulgarian rose, vanilla orchid, white amber, sandalwood and musk. 

When first sprayed, there was a nice citrus fragrance. I thought it would be a good scent for me. The scent got sweeter as time went on, though. A bit too sweet for me. Try it if you like a sweet fragrance.

I do love that bottle! 1.0 oz. is $36.00, 1.7 oz. is $45, 3.4  oz. is $65.00. Find it at Kohls, Nordstrom, Ulta, and Amazon.

Chanel No. 5 was introduced to the public in 1921. Coco Chanel created the floral scent to share only with 100 of her best clients, but  the scent's popularity caused her to sell it in her boutiques. It has won 17 Best of Beauty Awards from Allure Magazine and it remains a best selling scent today!
