Love those Lips!

It’s time to put away your soft summer lipgloss and revel in the gorgeous RED and WINE lip colors that are huge trends this fall and winter!

To find the perfect shade without wasting money, I recommend going to a makeup counter at the mall, or a retail store like Ulta or Sephora, where you can test out products first. As I am sure you may know, red is not just “red.” There are hundreds of shades, formulas and textures to choose from.

Darker red and wine hues are beautiful, but keep in mind that the darker and more matte you go, the more “harsh” and potentially aging the look can be. You may find a bright, sheer option that works well for the daytime and a deeper more matte color for evening.

Enjoy playing with these new seasonal colors!

2 Favorites for Fall!

One of my favorite brands, Urban Decay, is having a fall sale and I wanted to pass it along!

Now through October 12th, 2013, you can go to http://www.urbandecay.com/ and receive 20% off your order using the code FFHOLIDAY13.

There are 2 products that I HIGHLY recommend:

1.  Eyeshadow Primer Potion- this is their top selling product and has made a pretty big name for itself because it WORKS! Squeeze a small amount from the tube and blend the creamy formula all over your eye lids. Allow a few minutes to set before applying your eyeshadow. It will keep your eye makeup vibrant and in place all day, and also prevents creasing. It comes in several shades and can even be worn alone. Below is the “Original” formulat that I use most often, which is nude.

2. Naked Palette- you get 12 gorgeous eyeshadow colors, some matte and others more metallic. It has everything you need for day, night and special occasions, with a full range of earth toned colors. The palette below is the original, but there is also a Naked 2 Palette as well. You can’t go wrong with either one.
