Instyle: You Can Do Red Lips!

You Can Do: Red Lips
Like the perfect leopard-print stiletto, an amazing red lipstick can transform even the most basic black dress into something startlingly chic. Case in point: Despite some stiff competition from her ambitious right leg, Angelina Jolie’s red lips won us over at the Oscars.

The Basic Tips
• Ditch the chapped lips! For a pitch-perfect crimson like Rihanna’s, exfoliate lips with a wet washcloth, followed by a dab of lip balm.
• Fill in with a liner that matches the natural color of your lips—not the lipstick.
• Apply color with a tiny brush, starting at the center of your mouth and blending outward.

The Basic Products
• Available in four versatile shades, The Nude Liner by Smashbox ($17 each; sephora.com) is easy to blend, and lasts for hours.
• A blue-based crimson like MAC’s Red ($15; maccosmetics.com) brightens up your smile, and neutralizes any discoloration on your teeth with its cool undertones.
• MAC’s 318 Retractable Lip Brush ($23; maccosmetics.com) creates a seamless finish, and thanks to its compact size, is perfect for touch-ups on the go.

I’m scared it will look too harsh.
If a full-on red is too much commitment for you, try out a lip stain instead like YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain in Orange de Chine ($32; yslbeautyus.com). Just dab a bit of it on the inside center of your lips, then smack them together. The effect is subtle, rosy, and youthful—like you’ve just finished a cherry Popsicle.

What eye makeup do I pair with it?
Although a statement lip works best with minimal eye makeup, that doesn’t mean you have to swear off shadows altogether. Unless you want to channel an ’80s revival, steer clear of bright shades, and stick to sheer neutrals

My newest obsession is Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15

About a month ago I headed into Sephora in search of some new foundation. I needed something that felt weightless, covered my sun spots, was waterproof and had sunscreen in it. Without hesitation, the Sephora clerk pointed me in the direction of Tarte’s Amazonian clay 12-hour full coverage foundation SPF 15. She asked if I’d like help color-matching the foundation, and I let her work her magic. She applied the foundation with Sephora’s Airbrush brush (#55).

To say I’ve been applying my foundation wrong all these years is an understatement.  The Airbrush brush has COMPLETELY changed the way I put on foundation. It literally makes your skin look like you’ve been airbrushed. It is hands down THE BEST way to apply foundation. She showed me the different ways to put on foundation (a sponge just soaks it all up – what a waste!), and the brush is the way to go. Trust me. Follow this link to buy online, or head into Sephora and ask for it. You’ll be so happy you did.

Back to the foundation. I loooooooooooooove this foundation. It feels absolutely heavenly on my skin. Your skin doesn’t feel weighed down, it feels and looks amazing! It’s only $34, and you can also pick it up at Sephora or Ulta.
