Sweat-Proof & Matte Makeup Bases

Tuesday, June 23, 2015

If you have oily skin you know its hard enough trying to keep you makeup in tact and in the summer its even harder! Here are some of my favorite products to use to keep a matte face...

Most importantly get a setting spray. I use NYX - Matte Finish spray. This is very long-lasting keeping your makeup set. I used this during Gym and sweated like a pig and this really helped keep it on. Powders are good for oily skin, but don't be afraid to use a setting spray just make sure its matte and long lasting. Matte sprays should keep you from shine and an oily look for most oily skin. Let me know what setting sprays work on your skin type in the comments!
Another matte base you need to get is the Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion. I have not only have loved this myself but I know many who loves this too. Not always can concealer do the job this potion can keep from naughty creasing and help you eye shadow from running away! This is definitely worth it for those sweaty days!
Before putting on foundation you need a primer. This will give you a base for your foundation to hug. I use Smashbox Photo Finish Primer. This primer is very lightweight and smooth. This will not only prime but even out your skin tone. Love this!
Make sure to wear a wax eyeliner. Nothing worse than it making its way down your face. I love using Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil. This is also water-proof! This eyeliner is super creamy and gliding pencil that drys to not budge.
You need a lip-liner in the hot summer heat! You don't want you lip color to fly away! Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Lip Liner in the best long-lasting lip liner! Its clear so no mess! You only have to buy one lip liner no more buying hundreds of different colors. This will keep you lips set in place with moister to not dry them out in the sun!

Make sure to wear something like these bases this summer!


Hot & Spicy OPI Nails

Thursday, June 11, 2015

The perfect way to start summer, with bright orange nails! I think this makes my nails as excited as I am for summer! hehe it definitely is a statement. I love a good bright happy orange.

I have been loving OPI nail polishes for a while. They are my go to brand of nail polish with the exception of Sally Hanson. This is one of my favorite colors by OPI. I love how OPI nail polishes are so thick and only take one coat and dry fast.

What do you think of OPI?
I would love to see what your opinion is...


How To Wear A Purple Lip

how to wear a purple lip
Purple lips aren't only for winter, its a fun springy/summer color too! But, sometimes it can be hard too because it can sometimes look a little tacky and unprofessional. So here are some ways you can rock it...
First off you want to make sure it fits your skin tone. You don't have to feel limited to the amount of purple colors that are out their, pick one that you like, there are plenty of purples out their for you. Usually if you have a warmer skin tone it works well with a color between reddish purple to purple, and if you have a cooler skin tone you could go for a range of cooler purples.
Keep everything else minimal, the lipstick is the spotlight and can clash with an eye shadow and add to much color. You want to keep you hair simple as well. You don't want to look like a clown!
Lastly, purple lipstick can make you lips look small, to prevent this simply add a clear lip-gloss to give it a normal look. For an extra, add a little bit of white eye shadow in the inner lips for an ombre lip effect. Make sure to blend it well.
How do you like wearing your purple lipstick?
Ps.. Love it when you comment!
