CHRISTMASIFY THE GREY LIP

So we hear that you’re obsessed with the grey lipped bae. Don’t worry – so are we.

Wearing a grey lip is a daring and bold makeup look that you can easily and casually wear because let’s be real, you can rock whatever you want without anyone’s judgement.

Christmas brings out everything that sparkles. Sparkly dresses, shimmery makeup and glittery decor. Now, you can Christmasify the beloved grey lip by adding a little bit of shimmer.greylip1

Simply apply your desired grey lip color as per usual. If you feel like you’ve searched every inch of the world to get your hands on a grey lip color, here’s one to check out, or you could use a grey eyeliner to fill in your lips!

Then, add your sparkle towards the middle of your lips. This can be achieved with a silver lipstick with a bit of shimmer, loose glitter or a clear gloss with some glitter chunks.

4 Basic Beauty Lessons To Learn

These days, we get a lot of really useful beauty tips from really talented people. In an instant, we can learn how to line our lips properly, how to get our eyebrows on fleek, how to contour and highlight like a pro, and even a little special effects makeup. Bottom line is – we can learn some pretty cool beauty lessons these days.

But what about those really simple makeup lessons that we could all benefit from? We’ve got you. Here are some makeup lessons that we want to pass on from a sister to another! Enjoy and happy makeup-ing!

tues-beautylessons

Wear a Nude Lip that suits you, not what what suits other people.
We know just how much you want to go out and splurge on all the high end nude lip colors that your favorite celebrities wear, but this is something to avoid! Lipsticks are something you need to shop around for! Make sure you do a lot of swatches because everyone’s complexion is different, and different lip colors match different people. Before you go out and buy that YSL Nude color, head in-store and swatch it on your skin before you spend all that money. You might hate the product on your skin, but you might just fall in love – you never know.

Blend, then blend some more.
It’s in the girl bible to always blend when it comes to applying makeup. It’s still a little cringe-worthy when makeup is visibly un-blended and you just wanna help a girl out! When applying makeup onto that beautiful face of yours, whether it’s eyeshadow or foundation, blend in circular motions. You can also try out blending sponges if you’re feeling a little more creative.

A little lippy goes a long way.
Whether it’s your fiercest dark lip, your brightest pink or a some gloss, a little lip love makes you look a little more ‘put together’, especially on your off-duty days when makeup is just not necessary.

Don’t do your makeup in bad light.
If there was one beauty lesson that everybody should learn from the very first day makeup touches their face, it’s that they should never, ever do a full face of makeup in bad light. Bad light is basically anything too dark or even too bright. To achieve good light, sit by the window and try to let the natural light hit your face while you do your makeup. This helps you to get a flawlessly made up face every time.

DAY TO NIGHT: Fashion and Beauty Tips

We all love going for cocktails with the girl gang after a big day at work and, some of us might have a cute date night after another shitty day in a classroom. Whatever you have going on, we could all use some helpful tips that help us go from day to night with ease!

daytonight

1. Change into a dark lip You should be moisturizing those luscious lips during the day with your favorite balm. Then when you go out for some fun during the night, smack on a dark lip for a quick, powerful and fierce night look.

2. Add statement jewelry Adding a few statement pieces to your #OOTN changes the whole game. It’ll transform your entire outfit – add a statement necklace for sophistication; stack a bunch of rings on for an edgy or boho look.

3. Smudge for a smokey look If you’re wearing a perfect line of eyeliner during the day, you’re already ahead of the night makeup look game. For a sexier and more night-time appropriate look, just smudge your liner onto your lids for that smokey eye look.

4. Swap your stud earrings for dangling earrings If you’re looking forward to partying at the end of the day, pack a pair of unique dangling earrings for that girly, eye-catching look.

5. Let your hair down Just like in the movies when someone lets their hair down after a lifetime of it in an up-do! If your locks have been up in a pony for the day, take your hair out and mess around with it for a bit of volume. An effortlessly casual party look!
