Hellooo girlfriends... Happy Sunday... I'm in such a good mood this weekend. I got the chance to see Cherry Blossoms at the Brooklyn Garden, smell the flowers, take a looong nap in the afternoon, meet friends for dinner, talk about makeup with them all night, and have Sunday brunch with Ro... As Rihanna says, "Cheers to the freakin' weekend"...
As far as makeup goes, I've been pretty "experimental" lately. I'm into color eyeliners, as opposed to my boring black liner. It's actually so much fun working with color eyeliners as it gives my eyes a different kind of pop!
You see what I'm saying? It pops without being too much... I can definitely see myself walking around the grocery store wearing this! (Ok, that's not happening). The key is to keep everything else simple: Don't use any shimmery eyeshadow and try to match the lips and the cheeks' color by using products with similar undertones.
In this look I'm wearing a cobalt blue eyeliner by Sephora and a creamy coral lipstick by Too Faced. I'm so excited to share with you how much I love the new lipstick I'm wearing! The Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in creamy coral is a new lipstick format that I've never seen before. It's a lipstick in a tube. I'm usually not a fan of any non-bullet lipsticks, but with this one... I'm in love!!
The lipstick comes in a tube and you just apply it straight from tip. It takes a little bit of getting used to but it's not a big deal at all. The formula is very smooth and the pigment is rich yet build-able. It has a velvety finish, even though you can keep building it to create a glossier finish. This product is the exact hybrid of lip gloss, lips stain, and lipstick. It's incredible!!
Here is what I'm wearing for the rest of the face:
From left to right: Sephora Waterproof Colorful Eyeliner in Pool Party, Makeup For Ever HD Pressed Powder, Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Creamy Coral, Makeup For Ever HD Blush in 315 (for contouring), Chanel Cream Blush in Presage (apple of the cheek).
And last but not least......
