A lipgloss worth your love!

I have always loved anything lips be it gloss, lipstick, lip balms, you name it I love it. My one problem with lip gloss though it’s either too sticky or it wears off after 20 minutes. Well my problems are in the past I finally tried Nars lip gloss and my only question is why did I wait so long?

Not only is the color rich and vibrant but it’s not sticky just really creamy and smooth and the color lasts a couple of hours. My first shade and it won’t be my last is Dolce Vita a rich plum color. I highly recommend this product to any other lip products junkies it’s worth every cent.

I had the chance to attend a great concert last week and see A Fine Frenzy perform. A Fine Frenzy is the band name for the uber talented Alison Sudol a 22yd old self taught pianist and singer/songwriter. Her lyrics are reminiscent of fairy tales and if the lyrics aren’t enough to draw you in Alison’s haunting voice has you hooked.

On top of being musically gifted Alison is gorgeous, I swear some girls get it all! I love her makeup so I did a little hunting to find out her favorite products which I have listed below. Alison even does her own hair and makeup for her shows I have included some of her DIY beauty tips. Also be sure to check out her video for “Almost Lover” and grab her album One Cell in the Sea!

Do you travel with hair and makeup?

Alison Sudol: No, I do all my own stuff.

Do you have any tips?

Alison Sudol: I do this thing with my mascara when I’m in a hurry: when I can’t get my eyeliner done correct, I use the mascara wand and I gently rub it against the bottom of my eye and it gives me sort of a messy, smoky look. A makeup artist taught me once to get a brown or dark purple eyeliner and warm it up on your thumb. Let it warm up and use the applicator side and gently put it on your eyelid and rub it in, and you can put eyeshadow over it to get a nice smoky eye. And blush. Even if you don’t have time to put on anything else, blush perks you right up.

LOVE HER!
