Rockin Red Lips!

30 Apr

I have always been a little nervous to do RED lips.  I have tried a couple times but never liked it, and never felt like it looked good.  This last year I either became brave enough to wear red lips or found the right color.  I think that it is a little bit of both.  The key is finding the right tone and the right shade.  If you are ivory/beige skin color you are usually better to do brighter not super dark.  Also if you have thinner lips you don’t want to do dark.  It will make your lips look even thinner.  Depending on your PH level in your skin the color of your lips might change the pigmentation of your lipstick.  If you tend to change your lipstick more pink or orange you are higher or lower on the PH level.  You need to balance it out before you put the red on so it doesn’t change.  Make sure you do a lip liner that is more orange if you go pink.  And if you go more orange you should go more pink.  Then you can put the red on and it won’t change the color so much if at all.  I found my absolute favorite.  Watch my clip if you want to know the best way to apply red lipstick!!  LOVE it.  I learned how to apply red lipstick from Robert Jones here is Robert doing a red lip at a photo shoot at Paisley Studios Click Here   So here is a question When is your favorite time to wear a red lip?  Do you like to wear a red dress or outfit, or do you like to wear something black, gray, or white?  Is it ok to wear red when you have a red lip?  Let me hear what you think.  I know what I think 🙂

Wheeling for Color?

26 Mar

How many are just so confused because of all the advertising out there?  Which colors should I use?  Am I warm or cool colors?  Do I wear blue with my blue eyes?  AAAAAghh!  I am going to help you figure it all out!  I know it is really confusing but the way you decide is based off of what you want the color to do.  Personally the reason I choose color is to pop my eye color not just be super bright.  So just as a preface you could use other colors but if you really want your eyes to POP you need to use colors opposite of the color wheel for your eye shadows.  If you have blue eyes you can only use a few 😦 but they look beautiful when you focus on your eye color not having them compete with your eye color.  Blue eyes coppers, browns, Golds will all look GORGEOUS!!  I have my all time favorite color that looks fabulous with EVERYONE.  It is a Golden Copper LOVE IT!!  Anyway haha 🙂  I will get off my soap box.  Green eyes you can use same colors but you can also wear burgandys and purples.  If you have brown eyes have a HUGE party because no colors will compete with your eye color so you can use whatever you want.  I love purples and blues but even a warm copper brown looks fabulous with your eyes.  Anyway, the easies way to see the colors I think is through Robert Jones you tube video clip.  It makes thinks so simple.  Also as for cool and warm colors that idea was made up in the 1980’s lets keep it there.  Everyone can benefit from warm colors they will ALWAYS make you look younger.  Very few people can actually wear cool colors and make them look fabulous.  If you look like snow white with natural Dark dark hair and really fair skin you can wear cool colors but most everyone else should stick with warm colors especially with your makeup.  I think more people for clothing can wear cooler colors but for makeup it is right by your face and Warmer I think is ALWAYS better.  Take a look at this video.  Sooooo Great!
