How to Find the Perfect Lipstick for Your Skin Tone

Posted by at in Makeup

How to Find the Perfect Lipstick for Your Skin Tone!

Most of us have a few tubes of lipstick sitting at the bottom of our makeup bags, some that we wear often, and some that we never even touch. There’s a reason for that! You may see the “perfect pink lipstick” while scrolling through Pinterest, but that “perfect” shade just doesn’t work for you.

There’s a reason you love it on the model and hate it on yourself. You probably don’t have the same skin tone! So, I want to give you some tips and tricks for finding the right shade and loving every lipstick that you purchase.

1. Know Your Undertone

Everyones skin has an undertone of either yellow or pink. Knowing the color of your undertone can be tremendously helpful when choosing lipstick.

One quick way to identify your undertone is by looking at the veins in your wrist. If they appear blue, then you have a more pink undertone. If they appear green, then you have a more yellow undertone. If they appear to be a more blue-green, then you are one LUCKY woman because that means you have a more neutral skin tone and can wear just about any color!

2. Know Which Shades Work With Your Specific Undertone

To know which undertone matches your skin best, you have to follow these very basic rules. If you have a more pink undertone, then you should stick to lipstick hues that have darker tones in them, such as blue or purple. For a more yellow undertone, stick to warmer colors with pink undertones.

If you are that lucky girl with a neutral skin tone, then you can try a bigger variety of colors. I love when a neutral toned girl wears a bold lip, it just screams confidence!

3. If All Else Fails, Pick Based On Your Actual Skin Tone

Olive Skin Tones

Olive skin tones generally have a more neutral undertone, so it is hard to go wrong with any color here. For the olive tone girl, you can pick from a variety of nudes, pinks, oranges, and reds. Try to determine your color based on your outfit and that will help immensely with deciding on the perfect color.

Fair Skin Tones

Really fair skinned people, look great with a bold bright red lip. A bold lip is a fun way to change up your look and can look fantastic. Try avoiding anything to light because some nude or light pink lipsticks can make you look washed out or sickly. We definitely don’t want that!

Darker Skin Tones

For women with a darker tone, deeper colors look best. Go for a dark plum or dark red. Berry colored lips are also very nice on your skin. These will flatter your skin like no other! Like those with fair skin, you should try to avoid colors that are too light. You don’t want chalky-looking lips to ruin the rest of your fabulous look!

Christmastime is my favorite time of the year, not because of the presents, but because we are all together. It makes me realize how lucky I am to have my whole family with me and it makes me incredibly excited for the new year to come.

One thing I love is getting my nails done with my mom and my sisters during this season because it is time for us to spend together. These are some of my favorite designs that I would love to try this season. I think a lot of them can even be done at home!

Fashion Fix: 8 Casual Outfits We Love

Posted by at in Fashion

It’s almost that time of year again when we have to unpack our favorite sweaters and boots to get ready for the fall season. I can’t wait! Although it is a huge pain to unpack all of my fall and winter clothes and put away summer clothes, I love going through it all and being able to give away anything that I don’t want or won’t wear this fall.

Anyways, this is the best time of year because bundling up and layering your clothes can look SO cute! I hope you love this collection of fall outfits as much as I do! Enjoy!

The Best Detangler Brush Just Got Better!

Posted by at in Favorite Products, Hair

My favorite detangler brush now comes in a SPARKLY version! Could this brush get any better?!

I love my sleep and at night after I shower, I barely blow dry my hair. So, when I wake up in the morning it is so tangled. I had a really hard time brushing it. It hurt so bad! Then a friend bought me the Michel Mercier Detangler Brush for Christmas and it made detangling my hair so much easier!

Sparkly Michel Mercier Detangler BrushIt is not completely pain free, but it is such an improvement. I think that as long as you start at the bottom and work your way up, this brush works perfectly. I like that the handle is long and easy to hold. It work great whether my hair is wet or dry and it never slips from my hand.

I use it on my niece too (who turns four today OMG). She hated having her hair brushed before we bought this and now she sometimes will fall asleep while I’m brushing it that’s how easy it is.

Did I mention how much I love the new design? It is so cute and I love that it’s sparkly!! These will make great gifts this year for Christmas for anyone.

I will be placing my order today + will post pictures as soon as I get my new sparkly brush!

I’d love to hear what you think of the new design, or your thoughts on the brush overall!!

The Best Colored Hair Clip-Ins

Posted by at in Favorite Products, Hair

haircolor

Lately, I have really wanted to experiment with color in my hair!

I have always had super dark brown/black hair, which I love, but sometimes it can be pretty boring. I don’t want to dye it because I can’t have brightly colored hair at work. I’m also too afraid to do something so drastic.

Well, while I was on Pinterest the other week, I saw that Demi Lovato endorses colored hair extensions now. They are called Secret Color Hair Extensions. Of course, I ordered them! They finally arrived and I really really love them! They make me wish I could dye my hair. ):

They come in several colors and they are super easy to put in your hair. It literally takes seconds! I had to cut mine because they were too long, but now they blend perfectly.

I also bought some other colored ones from Etsy. They have the best stuff on there. I could spend ALL day looking at the beautiful items on Etsy.

Anyways, I just wanted to share how much I love colored extensions now. If you are thinking about trying them, I would definitely go with Secret Color Extensions from Demi Lovato or …… They are inexpensive and I really loved them. Plus, they look super cute!

I’d love to answer any questions, or hear what you think about either of these colored extensions.
