Runway trends don’t always translate into every day wear, but this year there are 5 great trends that would work and really jazzed up your every day make-up look.
Each week In September I’ll give you some examples of how to incorporate each trend into your look as well as my favorite product picks. Let’s start with #1 = Red lips.
Every year when I think of the Fall & holiday season, the first thing I think of is bright, rich, bold lips! And I get excited.. I have dark hair and pale skin so I love reds, dark fuchsia, bricks, crimson and wine.. and every year I add a new color. This is one of the trends from the runway this season.
The trickiest part is choosing the right undertone for your skin tone. Here’s an example and a guide from The Beauty Bookends : Choosing The Perfect Red Lip.
My TOP 5 all-time favorite pics are these:
- Avon Slick Tint in Wine
- LipSense in Blue Red (The best contact for LipSense: firstname.lastname@example.org)
- MAC LadyBug or RubyWoo Gloss
- Revlon Black Cherry
- Loreal Pro Infallible Red (long lasting not too drying)
1. Red isn’t for everyone, but it doesn’t hurt to try.
2. Clear lip liner helps it stay in place & not bleed.
3. Keep your eyes simpler with a really bold lip.
4. Take a selfie and see how it looks but make sure your whole face is made up not just your lips.
5. Have fun! Aren’t you thrilled that the fall is finally coming? Go out and try something new it’s make up remember, you can always wipe it off.
Do YOU have a favorite RED or have your eye on a new one for Fall? Please share with me in the comments below.. I’ll be shopping soon.
Happy NEW YEAR! I would like to introduce myself to you. Some of you are new and I would like to say HI!:
I’m Michelle Bouse. I am a reformed Jersey Girl (born & raised), who followed her heart & moved to California in 1998 – but I’m not your typical California girl. I am a retired professional dancer over 40 who’s second career is Beauty. I love giving back, inspiring others, chocolate is my weakness and I’m addicted to tea & newly found love – Yoga.
I have the gift of seeing beauty in everything, everyone & making people feel good.. and feel it’s my job to share.
2015 is a BIG Beauty year for me.. I am celebrating 15 years (what?! how is that possible) as a industry make-up artist and 10 years (is this even possible) as an esthetician. I can’t believe it. These days people call me a beauty expert.
Last year I was on The Doctors tv show twice, my second Lifestyle Lift commercial aired as an expert with Debby Boone and I finished my final certification for Volume Lash extensions. One of my clients won her second emmy, a bunch of clients got married, had babies and appeared all over TV! I also expanded the boutique with certifying Linda as a OUIDAD Curly hair expert, carrying the product line exclusively and introducing the boutique closet, carrying clothing. (Not to mention my Boys and Girls Club team won a trip to Nationals for their 4th year in a row).
One of the BEST beauty introductions was THE BEAUTY BOOKENDS with my beauty best friend & fellow celebrity make-up artist, Dia Dibble. We started shooting short YouTube videos for anyone over 40 looking for beauty tips. We have had a wonderful response and requested live appearances.. so we will continue the videos every month in 2015.
But why should you stop by here and say Hi? (hmmmm) Well, I like meeting new people, like to talk and have a bunch of beautiful things to share. I hope to see you here again and would love to hear about your beauty successes, questions and inspirations.
Here’s to a New Year filled with beautiful possibilities..
I never thought I needed Toner. Then I started studying skincare & aromatherapy. I did a test on my face.. this is what I found:
Now at 42, I have noticed a BIG difference in the tone of my skin, brightness, firmness & lack of breakouts since using toner regularly.
I have noticed my girlfriend Dia’s face change too. Her freckles are softer, less wrinkles, more brightness and more hydrated skin.
It’s GOOD for your skin! Just cleanse and apply then follow with your fav moisturizer. I love to use hydrosols as well – aromatherapy & skincare combined!
