I don’t wear make up much during the week, aside from a few products from Meaningful Beauty, so on the weekends I like to play with it a bit. That is, if I have time. I admit that I’m horrible at eye make up. In high school I wore dark eyeliner around my entire eye. I finally realized that wasn’t doing me any favors and stopped wearing it completely. Now it’s saved for fancy occasions. I also used too much bronzer. (Although sometimes I know I still do.) One time Michael asked me if I had “dirt on my face” and I knew there was a problem.
Besides my trials and tribulations with eyeliner and bronzer my one make-up go to is lipstick. Not just any lipstick. Maybelline Vivids Lipsticks. I wish that I was being paid for this. I really do. Because I love this lipstick so much.
I have 5 different colors and you can tell how much I’ve worn some of them…
I’d like to think it’s part of my “signature” look (if I had one of those.) Hot plum is my go to. Followed by Fuschia flash. On Fire red is my neutral and pink pop or wild rose if it goes with what I’m wearing.
Bright lipstick is fun and makes me feel made up without wearing much makeup. And these colors are neon, so basically it’s everything I could ever want. Oh the best part, it lasts a long time and it’s under $8. Sorryboutcha MAC.
I couldn’t leave you hanging with just mine, so invited the darling Shelly of Behind Blue Eyes (great blog name huh?) to tell me her favorite beauty product today! Shelly knows a thing or two about beauty, getting crafty, and being a mom to her daughter! Take it away Shelly!
If you were to ask me what my favorite beauty product is, I would first tell you lip balm. But the more I think about it, I honestly do not consider lip balm a beauty product. It’s more like a necessity to life. I do not go anywhere without lip balm. If I end up forgetting my lip balm, I will immediately go to the nearest Target, Walgreens, etc. to buy some. The Honest Co. organic lip balm is one of my favorites. This one is lavender mint.
So, what is my favorite beauty product? My favorite beauty product is Juice Beauty’s Conditioning Lip Color.
I believe lipstick is a girl’s best friend. On days I don’t feel like putting on a full face of makeup, I just throw on a little lipstick. You could look like complete crap, but throw on a little lipstick and instantly enhance your appearance.
I don’t believe I ever loved a lipstick as much as the Conditioning Lip Color in Fig! The fig color goes with everything, looks completely natural and even works well with my red hair! I love that this is not one of those lipsticks that leave your lips with a dry, flaky color. It is full of jojoba and sesame seed oils which provides deep moisturizer and leaves your lips so soft. For a pop of shine, I add a little of the Juice Beauty Reflecting Gloss in Fig. I also like the fig color because I think it makes my blue eyes pop.
Juice Beauty is all I use for both skin care and cosmetics. Their products are organic, made without parabens, petroleum, pesticides, phthalates, artificial dyes or synthetic fragrances and never tested on animals!
