Blue eyed girl.

Blue eyed girl.

After several requests form a bunch of blue eyed lovelies for me to do a post on how-to make blue eyes sparkle, I'm excited to share it! I'm super excited because this is the first blog post that I've done using someone other than myself to demonsrtate a how-to makeup tutorial. If there is a look or tutorial that you'd like to see, please send me a note and I'll do my best to create it!

For all my blue eyed lovelies reading this, the best tip to remember when selecting eyeshadow colors to compliment your eyes is to use any orange-based colors. Stick with coppers, bronzes, and rich golds. These work best! Also, when selected an eyeliner, try to swap out black for brown-bronze liner. This will give you a softer look while still playing up your baby blues! 

Special thanks to the lovely Shannon Bender for being my makeup model. I had a blast talking about makeup & laughing all afternoon! It's nice to talk to another creative! xoxo

Big red!

Perfect red lips? Yes, please! There is nothing better than wearing red lipstick. The beauty of red lipstick is that everyone can wear it during any season! Here are a few of my tips that I always use to get the perfect red pout.

1. Hydrate: Make sure your lips are well hydrated. No cracking here!

2. Lip primer: I call this priming the pout! It extends the wear of your lipstick, it helps with feathering and bleeding. True story.  

3. Use a nude liner: Not only are nude liners great for helping your eyes appear larger, they can also be a great lip liner. Give it a try!

4. Invest in a lip brush: I feel that a lip brush always goes unnoticed. It can be a great makeup tool. It helps lipstick go on easily and evenly. Plus, it comes in handy when your favorite lipstick gets discontinued and you need every little bit left in that tube.

5. Use a shimmer: Loose shimmer shadows act great as a great highlighter for the bottom of your lip. Give a try!

I hope these quick tips help you the next time you decide to go red!
