Today’s video is all about how to wear bold red lipstick and make it to last all night long! It’s almost December which means there are a half dozen holiday cocktail parties during which we’ll all be envying that one clever girl who has figured out how to pull off the bold red lip look.
One of my most asked questions is about my face makeup, which I find to be such a funny question. What foundation, concealer, powder, and bronzer I use on a daily basis… etc. I find these questions shocking, not because I think they are silly questions, they are definitely not, but I’ve always had such a love-hate relationship with my skin. I battle it out every single day, but there really is a method to my madness!
Lately, I’ve been getting lots of questions about my make up routine and the products I use, etc… So I thought it would be fun to start by giving you a peek inside what I call my 5 Minute Makeup routine. No joke, just 5 minutes! It’s fast and effective, and even on the busiest days, I’m still able to feel a little put together!
I detail everything I use in the post!
A few weeks ago, Elizabeth Arden reached out about sharing how I use my favorite products from their Eight Hour collection and I couldn’t say “yes!” fast enough. I have been a fan of EA for years (see here & here!) and use their products daily. If you have never tried their line, you need to. The lipsticks are a great way to start (and get hooked!), but their skincare line is magical!
As you know, lipstick is my favorite beauty product. It’s magical, and it changes the way you feel and the way an outfit looks more than any pair of shoes ever could. I also like lipstick because you have to be bold to wear it. A bright red lipstick is not for the faint of heart, which makes it kind of fun and glamorous. Happy #nationalListickDay!
I love summer beauty for many reasons, but one of my favorite reasons is that it literally takes five minutes to do! And, who can’t get behind a 5 minute make-up routine?! No, seriously, part of the reason we have to quite literally change our beauty routine in the South is because the humidity is SO. VERY. REAL.
