In the month of love, we want nothing more than to be taken out on hot dates, whether that be with a sexy significant other or a group of girlfriends- looking good is always a priority.
Here’s a quick and easy way to go from daytime-professional to nighttime-style icon.
I love dressing up.
And one of the most fun parts about dressing up is rocking a bright lip.
And what better color to wear this Valentine’s Day then a bold pink.
So, take a look at my top five bold pink lip picks for this Valentine’s Day.
I love lipstick. This is of no surprise to anyone who has been here awhile. I love to wear bright colors in the summer to pump up any look- making tanned skin look more bronze, hair look more wind-blown, and summer a little better.
So I took a look through my lipstick collection and gathered my three favorite pink-toned lipstick colors to don during this season.
From left to right:
YSL Rouge Volupte #5: These lipsticks by YSL are one of my favorite formulas and this color is my stand by summer color. It is the most gorgeous peach toned pink I have ever found. Not only do I love this color on me, but it is beautiful for those with and without tans. I love how the formulation is so smooth and buttery. Another benefit of this lipstick is the smell— holy mango. I die.
Rimmel Kate Moss #16: I picked this color up last summer in Ireland and absolutely adore it. It is an amazing orange-pink that is great for daytime looks. On tan skin it brightens up your whole face! I would say that if you enjoy brights than this is a great every day summer color.
Maybelline Color Sensational #740: I love Maybelline lipsticks and the color sensational line is incredible quality for a drugstore price. I haven’t worn this color much because it is quite neon-coral, but when I do wear it, I absolutely adore it!
And those are my top pink summer lip colors! What are yours??
Summertime is full of tanning, swimsuits, barbeques and more. But for us makeup and fashion lovers, summer is also full of re-doing your makeup bag to summertime standards. Through the summer I have been collecting bits and pieces from both Ulta and Sephora to give me that sunkissed look!
One of my biggest insecurities during the summer is my skin. Less is more with makeup this time of year which means my face breakouts have nowhere to hide. This sent me on a hunt to find a great skincare brand that would honestly help clear acne, brighten and prevent future breakouts. I found all of that and more in Murad. (Comment below if you’re interested in a skincare routine)!
What comes next in my summer beauty routine? Concealer and foundation. Normally I try to go lighter on the foundation during the summer months to prevent breakouts and to give a more natural look, however I still want coverage. Thank the makeup gods that I stumbled across It Cosmetics and their Illumination Foundation! This foundation is out of this world great. It has such a buildable coverage and lasting power- I would recommend it to anyone!
Whats next? A lip color of course! Since I am such a fan of deep berry reds and plums I have acquired quite the collection. However I dont have that many choices for summer colors. But upon my last Sephora adventure I stumbled upon the YSL section and fell in absolute love with this gorgeous pink color.
For the eyes, I am loving Tarte’s Rainforest After Dark palette. The colors are all so convertible from summer to winter, and the palette comes with a blush, highlighter and bronzer as well.
Finally, since the summer in this part of the country is HOT HOT HOT, every fashionista and beauty guru is in need of a good facial spray. A good face spray is not only cooling but moisturizing as well. Its important to keep your face moisturized during the hot months of summer and this Caudalie Beauty Elixer does just that.
And those are my beauty treats I have been loving this summer! Have any of you been loving these as well??
