Every time I go to a beauty salon, I am always left with the dilemma of how much do I tip for their services. What happens if I don’t like what they did to my hair? What if they did a bad job? What if…? How did I answer these questions? I googled.
Here is what I what I came up with.
It’s that time of the year again. Time for the holiday parties!

My favorite holiday makeup look is the red lips. It could be soft, bold, glossy, matte, sheer or dark. I love them all. I love the red lip. I love it because if done simple, it can be so classy and glamorous. It’s also the quickest makeup look to put together. You don’t have to worry about eye or face makeup. If I do decide to do a little eye makeup, it’s always the cat eye. I always use liquid liner because it gives a clean and precise finish.

I love, love, LOVE to use glitter nail polish during the holidays. It’s the only time of the year I will sport glittery nails. My go-to glitter shade is gold. I love to layer it or wear it alone. I think it adds a nice warm touch.
Do you have a favorite holiday makeup look?
When it comes to Fall, I like to use dark lip colors, and I like to keep it matte. I feel it gives off an alluring mysterious look but classy at the same time. What about you? What fall lip color do you like to sport during Fall?
Everybody has makeup stashed away somewhere that they say they sometime use or will use. This is just code for: I’ll use it when I figure out how to or I shouldn’t have bought it, but I’m too lazy to return. Been there. Done that. I’m sorry to say that probably by the time you decide to pull out the makeup you stashed away months ago or even years ago may not be any good anymore. So how long do you have before you have to chuck the mascara, foundation, eyeshadow, or nail polish?
Summer is rapidly approaching so I thought I would share some summer makeup tips.
Summer is the perfect excuse to try those bright and vibrant nail polish colors you’ve always wanted to. I like to wear vibrant nail polish colors because they help show off my tan plus the colors really pop against tanned skin.
Bronzer gives color and warmth to your skin. Don’t overdo the bronzer though. Just apply to the high points (where sun naturally touches) of your face: forehead, cheekbones, chin, and nose. You want to look believable, not like an oompal oompa.
Put away the heavy foundation and matte colors and bust out that tinted moisturizer and gloss. Keep your makeup light and sheer since the summer heat will melt your makeup.
To prevent your makeup from disappearing and sliding off your face, try to use waterproof makeup. Primers will help foundation last longer and keep shadows in place. Waterproof mascaras and eyeliners will help prevent the undereye racoon look. Lip and cheek stains will give off a natural look and keep color from disappearing.
