Makeup Monday…

All about beauty tips every Monday.
I was inspired over the weekend to talk about Lip-Liner. I love liner. I do not wear it all the time, but when I want to have more of a defined lips, I make sure to pull out sharpener and get it ready.
Over the weekend I was at a party where I knew no one and there for I was talking to everyone. I happen to stumble across the cutest college kid. We made small talk for a bit. but, I could not help but look at her lips. This 5 foot nothing petite little things lip-liner was taking over her entire face and distracting me from the rest of her beautiful features. I wanted to grab her hand take her into the neatest bathroom and give her a lesson on how to apply and wear liner and lipstick.
This is why I wanted to make sure I give the lip-liner 101 to you all. It is super easy to just blend your liner and lipstick together. It will enhance your lips and not distract from your beauty.

Step one:
Apply lip liner to outline your lip. If you think by going outside you actual lip line will make them appear bigger… You are sooooooo wrong. You will end up looking like BOBO the clown.

Step two:
This step is the secret tool to blending liner and lipstick. Put on your lipstick on horizontal instead of vertical. I use a lipstick brush to make sure I my lips are even. However, either a brush or your actual stick will work great. Just do it like you would brushing your teeth, up and down not side to side.

Step three:
After applying your lipstick HORIZONTAL, Blot your lips and apply your lipstick one more time. It sounds tedious to be  blotting and re-applying. By doing this will help your lipstick last longer on your lips.

Final Step:
Apply lip gloss, MAC glass, or what I use Carmex to give a shine kissable look.

WTF!!! Wednesday…

This is the day that I share my own WTF moments here in the streets of NYC. This week I could not help but share my recent encounter with a Sr. Cougar (Women who is older than the typical cougars) I think she is beyond ridiculous but kind of in a good way. From the shoes to the faux fur to the hair band. I am not kidding her purse was in cheetah print too. Don’t even get me started on her bleached nest of a bun and over sized shades. This women pulled out no stops this morning. I have but on word…Meeeeooowwwww!!!!! This truly is going to be a Purrrrfect Wednesday.

Your Boyfriend Is Your New Accessory…

Don’t leave home without your boyfriend blazer this summer! He may turn out to be your favorite must have accessory. You can take him to work over a button-down or paired with heels and a sassy top for going out at night. Make sure you roll up his sleeves and add some colorful bangles to your wrist.

The key ingredient to make this seasons trend work for you is to pick a jacket that complements your body type. A boxy-cut may hide your waist and add weight to your frame. Make sure you can button the jacket and when you put your hands straight out in front of you, give yourself enough wiggle room for movement. Whatever your shape, wear a figure fitting underpinning with a bright fun color to make it even more slenderizing.

Don’t Forget to have fun with your boyfriend Jacket. Add fun jewelry that is chunky, loud and fun.
