I photographed various articles and pictures that I liked and the one element they all have in common?
I love articles that continue to cover the obsession women have with crimson pouts, seems European women embrace our favorite hue more so than our American counter-parts.
It’s not really a true red, but it has hints of red. However all 14 shades look pretty and this lipstick is supposed to have superior hydrating benefits.
Lipstick is supposed to glide on with perfection at every stroke.
If anyone tries it before I do, do tell.
I have various of each, but for one reason or another they don’t end up working the way I want.
I recently went out and bought a new red from Nars, Carmen to be exact.
My friend Dalia tried to steer me away from that color and now after wearing it a few days I realize that she was right. The formula has a lot of black in it, wearing it with another red lip liner doesn’t help.
How did I salvage my new crimson hue? I used Votre Vu’s Dramatic Lip Liner in Naked as my lip liner and ladies I couldn’t be happier. The nude cut into the black and now my lips take on the hue I fell in love with.
My advice, if you’re looking for the perfect nude lip liner that literally works with everything you’re going to want to try this. A plus is that it’s organic, so it’s good for you too. I also love the packaging and that there are refills available.
Well, I can’t say I have ever been a fan of Kat Von D. However she does know how to create glorious color. She recently launched a lipstick collection that includes 7 shades of red and colors we never imagined existed.
Looking at the jpgs on Intothegloss.com‘s post makes me want to walk into sephora to not only check out Under Age Red, but those pinks and nudes too.
I can’t say I would ever wear violet or navy but they sure look pretty.
What do you think?
Today over at Vogue there is an interview with her and she tells us what shade she was wearing and ladies, I have a feeling it’s going to be worth it.
Right now, I think it’s only available through Gucci.com, and it’s $39, which for Gucci is reasonable.
For the interview @Vogue.com
P.S There is a complete makeup collection available and I heard the packaging and quality was amazing.
I thought about posting those pictures, but felt why embarrass everyone else, no need.
This princess proves that a crimson pout is the perfect accessory to beautiful healthy skin and a little black dress.
Isn’t she lovely?
This past weekend was a crimson one, with Kate Winslet, Candace Lake and Gary Pepper Girl sporting our favorite hue.
This just proves that there is a shade for everyone and which is your current favorite?
Since the Skin Veil from Ellis Faas landed in my lap I’ve been unable to put it down, why? Because it’s the closest foundation I’ve tried that actually mimics my skin tone.
It’s natural looking in a way that doesn’t look like I’m wearing makeup. You may be asking yourself how can this be? It doesn’t look like I have piles of foundation and powder caked on my face, yet my skin is luminous and my imperfections are concealed without artifice.
Ellis Faas mascara is another beauty tool that enhances your natural lashes without looking like you’re trying too hard.
Naturally I’m also in love with MAKE, they make the most amazing Glossing Powder that leaves your skin glowing even more if that’s possible.
And last but not least I am addicted to my Brow Powder eyebrow pencil by iT Cosmetics, it’s not only natural looking, but it doesn’t come off until you take it off.
Ladies, this was just my canvas, this doesn’t include my skincare regimen or my red lipstick.
