Top 5 Summer Must Have Lipsticks!

17 Jun

Summer is a great time to embrace color in your makeup regimen. Although I prefer going minimal on my makeup during the warmest months, I do enjoy a pop of color on my lips. For my day to day summer looks, I usually skip eyeshadow and only wear tinted moisturizer, a touch of blush and some mascara! If I’m not wearing my go to nude lip gloss, I opt for one of these 5 colors below!

Most are pinks, one is a purple and one is a coral. These colors look great on all skin tones so DON’T BE SCARED of some color in your life!

Girl About Town by MAC $16 – Besides ‘Rebel'( which I wear religiously during the Fall/ Winter months) ‘Girl about Town’ is my favorite MAC color EVER EVER EVER! It is such a pretty fuchsia pink!

Candy Yum Yum by MAC $16– this color may seem risky for some, but this hot pink adds instant POW to your look!

FireBall Butter Lipstick by NYX $6– This color is NOT true to tube which is great because it looks reddish at first, but goes on as a beautiful coral color!

Brazen Berry by Maybelline $6– This beautiful berry color is a pretty purple that everyone can pull off. Also, be sure to Google Pantone color of the year, this lipstick IS an exact match to radiant orchid!

Vivid Rose by Maybelline $6– Think perfect pink. This bright(but not too bright) pink is perfect all Summer long!

Color Of The Year!!!!

1 Jan

Happy New Year!!!!!! 2013 was a phenomenal year! Before I get too into this post, I would first like to say thank you to everyone that has supported this blog of mine since the beginning. If you’re new to it, I also want to thank you for stopping by! I am so grateful to you all!!! XO- Journey

Every year Pantone also known as the authority on color announces the “color of the year” and this year it’s a lovely purplish/fuschia hue they call Radiant Orchid.

As with any trend, a great way to get involved is to start with makeup.  Everyone can afford a lipstick or a nail polish and it’s not as risky as wearing a dress or a coat in that hue if you’re not that into color. Below are some fun makeup products to shop that will get you right into this trend!

Side note: This color is flattering on all skin tones!

My favorite lipstick $4.99 I can’t get enough of this lipstick!

Eyeliner $19 I own so many of these Urban Decay 24/7 eye liners and they are some of the BEST on the market. They really do last 24 hours and are highly pigmented.

Shadow pot$19 While we’re on the subject of pigment, Urban Decay has the most pigmented shadows EVER! They are by far my favorite eyeshadow brand!
