What I Wore: Psychedelic

what I wore: dress – cheap thrills (also seen here), heels – jessica simpson, necklace – forever21, lipstick – CoverGirl Lip Perfection in Fairytale
This is dress is one of my favorite finds. I love the silhouette, the neckline, the length and the color! I’ve also been totally into a bright pink lip lately. Spring makes me want to experiment with color. Hope you’re having a great day!

What I Wore: Winter in the Tropics

(what I wore: dress – vintage from The Grey Dog, blazer – f21, tights – hue, pumps – jessica simpson, earrings – f21, tutu as slip – ebay, lips – covergirl outlast + lip perfection as seen here)
I love making summer dresses work in the winter. Sometimes the easiest way to do that is with a dress that has black in it. This tropical dress is so summery on it’s own but with the black tights and blazer, it works for winter as well.
Here is the dress from summer…

Party Trick: Lips

Pinned Image
I love wearing bold lipstick but I always get it on my teeth and I hate reapplying after one sip of a drink. One of my favorite tricks is to layer a favorite shade over a longwear. I kid you not, it lasts all day. Working for CoverGirl, I obviously tried the Outlast longwear and it works amazingly. I have looked for other drug store versions and have not been able to replicate so it really is my #1 recommendation. For Red lips, I use Outlast in Everreddy and once it dries I apply Lip Perfection in Hot.

For hot pink lips, I use Outlast in Dusty Rose and Lip Perfection in Spellbound.

Big Day Beauty

I hadn’t thought much about it until recently, but how do I want my makeup for the wedding? I want to look like myself – just enhanced but I also want to look fab in pictures. Do you go for understated or statement? I need your help, sweet readers and friends! I won’t share my dress but I will say that it’s white, it’s not strapless and I’m wearing flowers in my hair with minimal jewelry and the hair back.┬áLet me know what you think is most appropriate! Here I am as a point of reference ;)

1. This first picture below is the look I’m leaning toward: defined brows, winged liner, pretty lashes and a peach lip. What do you think? Do you like the slight cat eye?
2. More shadow, less lip…
3. You could go a little farther with the eyeliner for this…
4. Golder shadow and a paler lip…
5. More shadow, more makeup. I love this look but is it overly sexy?
6. A lot more shadow and liner – verging on costume vs wedding…
7. Lots of lip, lots of liner, less of everything else
8. More shadow, less liner…
9. Less liner, more lip…
10. Very Natural…
