I have not purposely been neglecting my blog. I began a post last weekend and I actually ended up losing all of my work because like a dummy…I did not save my work! I have recovered from the anger and I’m ready to write again…lol. A few weeks ago now I had so many CVS coupons and discounts I feel like I could have purchased half of the store. However you know what I used all those perks on…beauty products!
Soft Berry Lips– A great way to wear soft berry lips is to first apply a clear coat of lip balm. This will moisturize your lips so they don’t look dry when you apply color. Next, take a berry lipstick and apply it to your lips using your ring finger. This will distribute color to your lips without looking to heavy or over- done. This doesn’t have to be perfect. Simply apply the color and press your lips together to smooth out any harsh lines.
Blue Shadow/Liner– This Spring, think saturated colors across the eyes. There are several ways to wear cerulean blues so it should be easy to pick a style that suits you best. One way is to line the lower lash line with the color while keeping the top half of the eye naked or neutral. Another way is to pop the color on the outer corner of your eye while keeping the inner two thirds of your eye free of the vibrant color. Lastly, the most subtle way to add color is with an eyeliner. Simply line your waterline and add mascara to curled lashes with neutral lids.
White Shadow/Liner– This is my favorite trend for the season by far! It was a hit on the runway during Fashion Week. Rock this look by sweeping a soft white over your entire lid and inner corner, then lining your waterline with a white Kohl liner. Feeling daring? Try doing a cat eye look with a white liquid liner instead of black. Load on the mascara to top off this fresh look.
Glowing Skin– Glowing skin is beautiful paired with the pops of colors mentioned. To keep your look from falling flat, make sure your skin is taken care of by exfoliating, moisturizing, and keeping a light hand when applying foundation. You want to look fresh for Spring, so stay away from heavy duty foundations that can make you look cakey.
Rosy Pink Shadow-What better way to show your femininity than with the ultimate girly color? Be sure to use a flesh toned base before applying otherwise you may look sickly. Also, I would steer clear of this look if you are extremely Fair in complexion it may not be the most flattering. Put this color on your lids to give an ethereal appearance. Wear with just mascara for a soft and pretty presentation.

Hey y’all! I am fully aware that it’s April and most of us have sheltered away our red lippies in favor of Spring. However, it is 50 degrees and raining here in Dallas today. Such miserable weather! So my red lips have made a comeback (hopefully a short one) in light of this hiatus from Spring we decided to take here in Texas. What do you guys think? Is it a do or a don’t? Do you always play by the “rules” when it comes to your makeup?
On my lips: Milani Color Statement Line in True Red, L’Oreal Infallible lipgloss in Rebel Red
