Lips Of The Moment – Salem ♥

Although I’m a huge fan of bright, fun lipstick colors, once in a while when the weather starts to get chilly, I like to switch it up and wear my vampy lipsticks. For me, the darker the better. This lipstick in particular isn’t necessarily dark, but it’s different. I’ve never owned anything like it. Are you wondering what I’m talking about? You’re right. Salem by LimeCrime. salem I’ve been wanting to try one of their Velveteen lippies for the longest time so when I got the opportunity to purchase one, I was automatically drawn to this one. Salem is like the perfect brown lip product. It’s a Velveteen so it goes on liquid and dries completely matte. It’s a beautiful color and perfect for the Fall. My favorite part of this lip product is that it literally lasts all day and it’s not as drying as some of the other liquid to matte lip products I’ve used before. I think this will definitely be a staple product for me this season!

Classic Pin Up Makeup ♥

When I think of Marilyn Monroe there are two things that come to mind, Red lips and a Mole. The Classic Pin Up makeup look has been around for years and I still think it can be one of the most sophisticated and classy makeup looks someone can wear. This look literally goes with every skin tone, and every outfit. You can dress it up or dress it down. You can wear it for any occasion. It’s just one of those classic looks that you can always go to.

I spoke about my M.A.C Viva Glam Rihanna Lipstick in my last L.O.T.M post , I’ve been so obsessed with this red, that it basically inspired me to create this look for you guys. It’s such a simple look that anyone can do this!

I hope you guys enjoy this tutorial and if you do please thumbs up, like, comment, and share the video!

Lips of The Moment – Glam it up ♥

Red lipstick to me is like your go-to classy lipstick, it goes with any skin color and any occasion. I’m pretty much a lipstick hoarder, so I can tell you right now that I have several shades of the same color in different lipsticks, but this one has become one of my go-to favorite red lipsticks. I’m not a huge fan of Rihanna but I can’t lie, her partnership with M.A.C cosmetics has just been amazing. From the packaging to the actual product itself, they’re definitely must try products.

This particular one is the Viva Glam Rihanna lipstick by M.A.C cosmetics. It is a Blue Red lipstick with a bit of frost in it, but once applied to the lips you can’t really see the frost too much.  The great thing about this lipstick besides the amazing packaging (which I will get into in just a bit) is that every cent from your purchase goes towards women, men, and children living with or affected by AIDS/HIV. Being that I lost a family member from this disease it means so much more to me that I can help out by buying something that I am passionate about as well.

The packaging is beautiful. It is a red velvety, smooth, soft touch packaging and it contains Rihanna’s actual signature on the inside of the tube. This is a lipstick that I would for sure want to display on my vanity. It is a limited-edition lipstick so if you are interested I would suggest going out and buying it sooner than later!

When applying red lipsticks, you always want to use a lip liner. This goes for dark lipsticks in general. My lips especially, tend to bleed a lot when applying dark lipsticks so lining them helps defeat that. With this lipstick I use my Sonia Kashuk Lip Liner. It is the perfect combination!

Lips of The Moment ♥ Pink-ish Nude

Out of all the makeup products a girl could ever have, I must say that lip products are by far my favorite. There is something about expressing yourself through your lip color that just gets me. I can’t get enough. I’m that person that would walk around wearing green lipstick without a care in the world. Because of this, I have decided to do a new little series on my blog  called LOTM (lips.of.the.moment). I tend to go through phases where I will wear the same combination of lip products for a week straight, sometimes even a whole month straight! So I decided to show you guys what my favorite lip combo of the moment is!

There are many times where I take a picture and post it on Instagram or any other social network, and everyone wants to know what lipstick I’m wearing. Instead of responding to a million people with the same answer, everyone can now see my favorite lip combos right here 🙂 I hope you guys enjoy these type of posts, I have fun making them! (and of course, its another excuse to try new lip combo’s andddd buy new lip products. hehehehe 😉 )

For today’s L.O.T.M post I want to show you my go-to everyday lip combo, as of recent. It is a pink-ish/nude combination that I have been loving so much to the point that I have not put it down since I discovered it!

I haven’t been wearing much makeup recently since I have been super busy and haven’t had time to get glam. This pink/nude lip is so natural and perfect for everyday! I actually wasn’t impressed with the Too Faced lippy at first but after a few more tries we have become inseparable. This has literally been my go-to lip product for the past month, and I’m obsessed with it. I deff. want to try more of these Too Faced Lipsticks!
