Fall Lipstick Must have

2 Oct

Every year myself and countless bloggers compile lists of our favorite Fall lipsticks to share with the world. Every year the same lipstick is on my list. I’m sharing only one color this year because I feel so strongly that it should be a part of every woman’s Fall lip color collection. Without a doubt, Mac Rebel is my go-to, must have Fall lip color.mac

The beautiful rich berry/wine hue is gorgeous and looks amazing on all skin tones as well.  I can’t even remember what tube I’m on at this point- I literally wear it all Fall long and into Winter as well. I love love love this color! What are your favorite fall lippies?

Berry Pretty Crimson Kiss

4 Sep

I am so excited to wear bold lip colors this Fall.  I wear lip color year round but I usually stick to nudes, peaches, corals and pinks in the warmer months. Every September I incorporate my wine hued favorites and shop for any new ones that spark my interest. I literally discovered these Wet n wild shades from a friend three days ago and I’m hooked! In this particular post I will focus on my favorite 5 reds. A crimson kiss looks great on all skin tones and works  any time of day or night.  With this bold lip I do go light on my eye makeup during the day  to keep a nice balance and I save the “crazy” eye for the evening i.e.. heavy on the shadow and or eyeliner etc.

My favorite 5.

Red can be scary at first but just try it on at the makeup counter, they will always let you sample some (make sure they shave the top layer off first, they are used to this request)

New to the whole red lip look? Start with a sheer coverage like the Givenchy,  it’s slightly pearlescent and lightly tints the lips.

Want to dive right into the red?  Then the other 4 choices below are for you.  They are true to tube color providing pigment rich intense color payoff, yes even the dollar ones are amazing! I promise!

Givenchy Rouge Interdit in Raspberry Shine ($30)

Wet n wild Silk Finish in  Cherry Frost 514A (99¢) Also available at drug stores.

Wet n wild SilkFinish in Just Garnet 552A (99¢)

Inspiration……. from cherry red to deep bordeoux…….these colors look great on everyone!



Where are you going to rock your red?????????

Fall Preview: My Favorite Fall Trends

9 Aug

I couldn’t be more excited about Fall,  it’s my favorite time of year for fashion and I feel like I’m able to really dive into my wardrobe.  I love coats, boots, rich colors, texture, layering, bold accessories, you name it!  Every year I look forward to the upcoming season,  some years are better than others and this year is GREAT!!!!!  I am so excited to shop these amazing looks and even more excited to wear them.  As you know I do not believe in “fashion rules” and I feel like sometimes trends are exactly that; a trend, while other trends last far into the next season and stay in your closet for years (those are my favorite kind).  I also know that certain trends are not for everyone, with that being said I will only be discussing trends that I love in this post!  If you have money to blow, splurge a little but by no means do you need a Fat bank account to be styling’ this Fall.  Let’s get to the fashion!!!!!!!
