Dare To Wear Red Lips

Red lips seem to always be in style, no matter the season. Red lips are glamorous, audacious, classic, and are just down right sexy! There are so many red lipsticks for cool and warm undertones. Finding the right red shade for your skin-tone is key. Furthermore, determining what type of finish you want is important (Satin, Frost, Matte, and Lustre).

  In general, red lips just look great on all complexions. I started wearing lipstick about 3 years ago, but I stuck to neutral lipsticks. I already have full lips, so I always thought I looked CRAZY, with huge painted lips. It definitely took some time to adjust to ANY color on my lips. But with time, I gradually started playing with different lip colors. Now, I almost feel like I have to wear lipstick almost every time I leave the house. My favorite ALL-TIME red lipstick is Nars’s Red Lizard; it looks AWESOME on my complexion. When wearing red lips, I like to trace and fill-inwith NYX’s Hot Red lip pencil. When doing so, it makes the lip color last longer on the lips. In addition, I like to clean up around the lips with a concealerthat is my exact complexion, to ensure a perfect pout. These 2 factors will work with any lip color. I listed some red lipsticks in my collection, from my favorite brands (ranging from low, mid-range, and high end). I’d love to know what your favorite RED lipsticks are 😉

Nicki Minaj- I Am Your Leader Makeup Look

Nicki Minaj is at it again w/ a new music video titled, “I Am Your Leader “. Nicki is notorious for her colorful wigs, cooky costumes, and signature pink lips.
I recreated this makeup look,
where Nicki is in a bath tub, wearing sparkly boots and a green wig. Her eyes are garnished with purple glitter, with a pop of bubblegum pink on the cheeks and lips. Although I’m not  a fan of Nicki’s music, I adore her makeup and creativity. What do you think of Nicki’s video?
