Don't Be Afraid of a Bright Bold Lip

When it comes to the lip color we choose, we tend to gravitate to the same ole color. With Spring around the corner, dare to be different and try a bold bright lip. Every bright color might not be for you but trust me your match is out there somewhere.Bright oranges, reds, and pinks are in this season so when needing to add pops of color into your wardrobe, why not start with your lips?

Tips to wearing a bright lip.....
 - Line your lips with a lip liner the same shade of the lipstick, this prevents your lipstick from seeping onto your face.
 - Apply the lip liner over your whole lips , this serves as a base for the lipstick and also provides additional pigmentation.
 - Applying face concealer onto the lips also serves as a good base for the lipstick as well.
- If the color is too bright, you can tone it down with a nude lipgloss.

 NYX Matte lipsticks-Matte lipsticks are a new makeup trend and these matte lipsticks are everything a girl can ask for. They're creamy and highly pigmented.

2012 Grammys Best Dressed

The Grammys is one of the award shows, if not the biggest where we look forward to the musical acts but most importantly, the red carpet looks. Celebrities pull out all the stops for this event, some take risks and some play it safe. Ladies and Gentlemen I present to you the 2012 Grammy's Best Dressed.

Rihanna absolutely killed the red carpet!!! She proved that the infamous black dress is always a winner. The custom made dress by Georgio Armani was simple and sexy. With minimal accessories, she allowed the plunging neckline, dramatic back, and high split to speak for itself. The makeup was light and flawless. With a neutral eye and soft pink lip, it was a perfect look for the dress. And how did we forget about the blonde hair? Absolutely fierce. You go Rih Rih!!
