My Favourite Lip Products!

Hello Beauties! Everyone knows that the lips complete the look! That’s why I’m here to share my favourite lip products with you all! Whether you want a product that moisturizes or provides a bold colour, this list has it all! Hopefully this will help you next time you go shopping to expand your lipstick collection!

Baby Lips by Maybelline “Quenched”

I love using this product for when my lips just need hydration. It is small and easy to take with you on-the-go. It leaves a nice sheen on the lips.  I also use it before putting on lipstick because it helps it go on smoother. And of course, the fruity scent is heavenly!

Mango Butter from The Body Shop

Lip butters are a must-have for the winter! My lips get very dry and chapped and this mango butter works wonders! My lips feel so soft and smooth and the smell is so yummy and amazing! You will not regret adding this to your collection!

Smoochies by Covergirl “Kiss & Tell”

It is a bright pink colour that is perfect for spring! It is definitely a buildable shade. Sometimes I’ll apply a thin coat for a light pink, and sometimes i’ll layer it to get a bright fuchsia. It is so moisturizing and leaves a shiny/glossy finish on the lips. I just can’t get enough of this product!

MAC lipstick “Giddy”

This is my absolute favourite lipstick colour! It is a natural nude pink shade that is so diverse. I like to wear it with bold eyeshadow looks, or i’ll just pop it on when I have no makeup on to give my lips some colour and life.

Maybelline lipstick  “405 Yummy Plummy”

This shade is perfect for the fall/winter. Plum shades are so in right now, and this one is definitely my favourite! It looks especially great on deeper skin tones.

Dramatic Dark Blue Smokey Eyeshadow Look

Hello beauties!! I decided to do a nice smokey eyeshadow that is perfect for any night out! I chose to do a blue smokey eye, however you can switch it for any colour of your choice! If you want to know how to get this look, continue reading!

1. I applied some foundation to my eyelid as a primer to ensure that the eyeshadow stays on, and so I could get the pigment that I wanted.

2. I applied the dark blue shade to my entire lid. You can apply whatever colour/ shade you want. Pack it on until you get the desired intensity of colour.

3. I used black heart from the naked 3 pallette (you can use any shade of black/ dark brown that you own) and applied it to my outer v and inner third of the lid. Make sure you blend this very well so that there are no harsh lines.

4. I went back and added more blue to the middle of my lid to add more intensity. I also smudged some underneath my lower lash line to bring the look together.

5. I wanted some shimmer, so I used a champagne colour and applied that in the middle of my eyelid on top of the blue to add some sparkle.

Maybelline 100 Cozy Cashmere Palette (Champagne Colour) I know it’s basically empty haha! That’s just how much I love the shade!

6. Lastly, I did a winged eyeliner and applied some mascara.

5 Makeup Must-Haves for Travel

Hello beauties! Travelling is a lot of fun, but packing a suitcase is a whole other story. Packing can be a frustrating thing, but I’m here to make it easier for you… and your makeup bag. I’ve come up with a list of 5 beauty/makeup must-haves for any glamorous traveller! Plus, I added pictures of products I recommend! 🙂

1. BB cream/Tinted Moisturizer

You can apply it with your fingers making it easy and convenient for you to do while on-the-go! Provides you a good coverage without all the hassle of a foundation.

2. 2-in-1 Blush & Bronzer

Don’t ever skip out on the blush/bronzer because every girl needs a little colour on her face! 2-in-1 products are a lifesaver for anyone that’s constantly travelling because it’s one less product to carry around in your makeup bag.

Quick tip: Get the most bang for your buck by using bronzer as an eye-shadow! You can sweep some of the bronzer  in the crease of your eyes, for some added depth and natural looking eye makeup.

3. Mascara (preferably waterproof) 

Mascara does wonders for your eyes because it: a) defines your lashes b) makes your eyes pop and c) helps you look more awake. I suggest using waterproof mascara if you are going to spend time at the pool/beach and because while travelling you have to be prepared for any type of weather, and you don’t want panda eyes due to an unexpected rain shower (we’ve all been there). 

 Quick tip: when applying mascara focus on the outer lashes to create the illusion of bigger eyes.

4.  Lipstick/ Lipgloss/ Lip-balm

We can’t forget about the lips! Choose your favourite shade of lipstick/lipgloss to complete your look. For the days you want to rock your natural lip colour, (you go girl) I’d suggest using a moisturising lip-balm. Always carry a lip product in your purse because you never know when you may need a retouch.

5. Neutral Eyeshadow Pallette (travel size)

Try to find a palette with matte shades because they are easier and faster to apply and look more natural. If your palette includes a black shade, you can use it as eye-liner. I strongly recommend the naked basics palette. If that’s too expensive then try the NYX drug store alternative. I found out about this alternative thanks to this blog post: http://blushandlace.com/2012/12/20/urbandecaydupes/
