Perfectly Pink Pout

Here's how I do it...

1.) Lightly exfoliate

2.) Apply lip balm. Blot off excess.

3.) Apply nude liner around natural lip line.

4.) Fill in lips with nude liner.

5.) Apply color with lip brush. Blot. Apply a second coat.

6.) Swipe concealer or powder around the edges of the lips.

It's as easy as that!

Featured Friday

What better person to feature this Friday than my good friend, 
Mary Meghan Mabus. 
 Growing up in Tupelo, MS, this southern belle is one of the most talented photographers I know! Her love for photography started out as a hobby, but has since flourished into quite a thriving career. She enjoys shooting different genres from live entertainment and landscape to weddings and portraits...and much more. 

I had the pleasure of doing hair and makeup for one of the brides she shot a couple weeks ago.

This summer is vibrant

Kevin.Murphy Color.Bug
Color without the commitment.

I love changing my hair color and I do so probably more than my hair can handle (Thank God for conditioning treatments!).. So I recently started using Kevin.murphy products in my salon... LOVE! One product I discovered by this brand was Color.Bug. It comes in purple, orange, and pink. It's totally harmless and completely temporary!

Wear it over the weekend and wash it out for work Monday. It works like an eyeshadow for your hair! So easy!!

Here's how I apply it.....

1.) Wrap a towel around your shoulders to protect your clothes.
2.) Apply a hair product like a light texturizer or pomade
 (Anti.Gravity oil-free volumiser also works great) to dry hair...This helps the color adhere better to the hair.
3.) Rub Color.Bug onto your hair wherever you want.
4.) When you're finished applying the color, 
give your hair a shake so excess pigment can fall out.
5.) Enjoy being awesome.

Want to make this color less vibrant or pastel?
Spray dry shampoo such as Kevin.Murphy Fresh.Hair on the color!

Charmaine Olivia.

Charmaine Olivia lives in San Francisco as a full-time artist and model.
Using oil and ink as her main forms of media, she creates the most unique works of art from rainbow-haired mermaids to fierce ship captains. 
Her attention to detail and soft blending are perfection!

This summer is bright

Neon bright!! 

I'm seeing a lot of neon this summer and I've got to say, I'm pretty into it! I even bought a neon yellow tank top recently... It only accentuated the hellacious sunburn I got at the beach last Monday, but I proudly wore it anyway. I just love bright colors, albeit in small doses.

Would you wear neon?
