✨All that glitters – for your lips!
Glitter and glamour – what more could you want in your beauty routine? The glitter trend started with eyeshadows and eyeliners and moved onto highlighter and blush and now it’s making its way into the lipstick field. And we, for one, couldn’t be happier. Previously you might have reserved glitter makeup for the fancy-dress party or once a year on Halloween – but where is the fun in that?
Glitter lipstick is the perfect way of adding some extra jazz and fun into your look. And why wouldn’t you want your lips to match your glowy personality?
So, stay tuned to find out about how you can rock glitter lipstick this season!
Add some shine to your red lippie
Red lipstick is that makeup trend that has always and probably always will be on trend. But why not mix it up a little bit? The next time you fancy sporting a red lippie, why not choose a red glitter lipstick?
Red glitter lipsticks will give you that fun red moment that you are in dire need of. Just like with classic red it works with almost all make up and fashion choices. If anything, it will just make that red look that little bit bolder and better! The proof is in the (glitter) pudding in Instagrammer @jeimy.parra’s stunning pic!
Add some glitter to your favourite coral shade
There’s a reason coral tones have been a hit ever since hitting the beauty market. Coral shades come in rose and golden shades and are extremely flattering to medium and dark skin tones.
With a glittery coral shade, you’ll be getting that same coral magic plus some little extra pizzazz from the glitter. It’s a win – win situation as Instagrammer @staygoldencosmetics shows!
Grab yourself a pink glitter lipstick
As a kid you probably wanted everything to be pink and glittery. It’s time to relive a bit of your childhood by sporting a pink glitter lipstick.
Pink lipsticks come in countless shades – from peach all the way to berry. By adding some glitter to the mix your pink hue will get some much-needed golden shimmer. This look is subtle enough to wear at any time of day but also sassy enough to make sure you rock that day! Who wouldn’t want to emulate Instagrammer @karinawaclawik’s gorgeous look here?
Get yourself some glitter gloss
The beauty of glitter glosses is you can pair the glitter with any shade of lipstick in your makeup bag. That means an unlimited range of glitter lipstick shades! Why not go all out with a beautiful blue shade like Instagrammer @dodipi?
Or, if you’re feeling like a dewier look, you can simply wear the gloss. Your lips will be bright and shimmery but not overbearing. So, if you’re not a fan of the bold lip you can still join the glitter parade! Just like Instagrammer @corynn_77 in this hot pic!
Glitter pens to the rescue
We all love a bargain, and a glitter pen is just that. The pen can be applied on your lashes or your lips! It’s the perfect transportable item, with just a swipe a professional look for the office can transform into a sexy and sassy look for a night on the town!
So, whether you feel like a hint of glitter on your upper eyelids to make your eyes sparkle or a dab of glitter on the centre of your lips you’ll be good to go! Or, like Instagrammer @marenbli, why not rock glitter lids and lips?
Let’s chat hair color!
What is a hair toner? A toner is a semi or demi permanent hair color that either adds or neutralizes tone in your hair- that’s where the word toner comes from. As a colorist, I use a toner on 99% of my blondes. A problem I’ve run into in the past is a new client telling me they do NOT want a toner or that they’ve been told they’re only for fixing mistakes! Let’s pause here. Without a toner your hair color will be what I call “raw blonde” aka whatever your color wants to lift to on its own. This can include uneven color from previous touch ups, or yellow or orange undertones that our hair naturally has. A toner is my weapon to help combat these uneven tones and leave your hair as our desired result. So- next time your stylist uses a toner you can ask, what color are we enhancing today?! The answer might surprise you! Xo
ABH Dipbrow Dupe!
For the longest time I’ve always stuck with my Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow pomade!! And while the product itself is amazing, I randomly picked out this pomade by elf out of curiosity and fell in love!!! This is seriously a game changer if you use pomade for your everyday brows and want to save some extra cash!! The e.l.f. - Lock on Liner and Brow Cream is for One, easy to use Secondly dries down so nice, (I don’t worry if I accidentally wiped off a piece of my brow Lol). And best of all it’s literally $2!! I use the shade “Medium Brown” and find this blends really nice with black hair! Unfortunately my only con is that the product doesn’t have that many shades especially compared to Anastasia. I provided a photo of how I normally do my brows with this product for anyone wondering! Overall this is a great affordable pomade alternative! What products do you use for your brows?
THE BEST FOUNDATION I HAVE EVER TRIED
The Profusion Feel Good Skin Perfector is the best foundation I have used HANDS DOWN, and it is only $7.🙃 - shade: medium 3 neutral - skin type: combination (this foundation has kept my face 95% matte for over 9 hours) - satin finish w/ a light-medium coverage (it is buildable) - applies best with a sponge (I use the profusion marble sponge) It made my skin look healthy and even, and it’s my new everyday favorite foundation. I am very picky with foundations, but this didn’t give me bad smile lines so it’s a 10/10 for me already. ☁️ If you haven’t yet..please try this foundation out and let me know what you think! Hope this helps your skin look BOMBBB sis💕 #Profusion - Feel Good Skin Long Wear Skin Perfector[products]#[FiveStars]

Skincare Products ( that i have been LOVING )
Recently, I have been super into skincare and keeping up with my skin’s appearance as I am growing myself in the beauty industry ( meaning that I am now CONSTANTLY doing makeup on myself! ) Fluff and Starface both sent me these products to try out, and I have been LOVING them so far! I have combination skin, and this routine is PERFECT for me! My new three favorite skincare products that I have been enjoying as of lately are 1) FLUFF - Face Oil #1 , which is 100% jojoba oil, which I used as an all natural makeup remover! Jojoba oil is super moisturizing and amazing for literally all skin types- especially acne prone and sensitive skin! 2) FLUFF cleanser , which is again - all natural - containing jojoba oil, hemp seed oil (which moisturizes without clogging pores, and balances out oily skin), ashwagandha root (which stimulates production of natural skin oils), and aloe vera (which reduces blemishes and acne, as well as lightens blemishes on the face). This cleanser does a great job of removing makeup as well as leaving you skin moisturized and soft! 3) STARFACE Moisture on Mars Hydrating Face Cream! A little bit of this product really goes a long way, leaving your face super soft, hydrated, and all with a SERIOUS glow!!! I highly recommend checking these 3 products all out! They all work great separately, but in my opinion as I have been using them cohesively, my skin has been looking and feeling great ( besides that one pimple 🙄 ). xx Isabelle
