Perfect Red Lipstick

22 Jun

Tomorrow is the perfect day to wear and rock red lips, sexy, sultry, and just right. BUT you need to wear it properly because if you don’t they could look very dry, and odd and if you don’t moisturize and exfoliate they will look flaky! EEk!! So to make you feel confident about your cute puckers here’s a great video showing you how to do it…
P.S. Don’t forget to blot it will make the lipstick stay on your lips and not all over everything else, for a perfect night. xoxo

how to get the softest lips

22 Jun

This is one of the most important things for valentines day, soft kissable lips right? BUT it is also extremely important for that perfect red lipstick to look amazing on you. So this routine which I found on the The Beauty Department works miracles… As soon as I did it my lips changed and they have never felt better! ❤
So here it is straight from the Beauty Department:
Lips: You also want them to be soft and healthy, so make sure to give them a little scrub first by brushing them with a toothbrush or disposable mascara wand. I always tell my clients “every time you brush your teeth, brush your lips before you’re done.” Because that means they’ll get a nice polish twice a day, every day and won’t have the chance to get dry and cracked.

I’ve been doing this twice a day after I brush my teeth and it really only takes seconds, its an extremely simple routine that really pays off 😉

Here is the tutorial for hearts on your nails…
what you’ll need

20120206-155142.jpg
1) a light pink base coat
2) a hot pink stripes nail polish (the kind that has the super thin brush)
3) a hot pink nail pen (to clean up the heart and make it look prettier)
**) if you have a steady hand you can probably use just the pen or the stripes nail polish you might not need both. Just depends on how good you are. But I needed both 🙂

ok let’s get started

(sorry the colors look a little washed out they are much brighter in person, my camera was doing some weird thing with the lighting)

#1. Start with your base coat a solid pretty light pink
#2 Make a V at the bottom half of your nail with the hot pink stripes nail polish
#3 On the top half make a kind of m that meets up with the bottom V
#4 fill it in with the same hot pink color
*optional* define your heart a little more by going over it with your nail pen.
Finish it off with with your top coat
… and your ready to set off on your adventures but instead of having your heart on your sleeve you’ll have it on your nails 😉
Have fun!
