MAC RetroMatte Fluid Lip Colour

Lips are definitely having a moment right now, and I love it because it means that you can focus on just clean skin and a good lip, and some how the look just seems to come together. Although people might be getting tired of matte lipstick, I don’t think that it’s ever really going to […]

New Make Up For Ever Artist Acrylip

Bright lips are a definite pick-me-up any time of the year, and I love that brands are experimenting with formulas other than the matte smudge-proof lip products that we saw last year.  Make Up For Ever Artist Acrylip are intensely pigmented paint-type glosses that don’t dry to a matte or stay-put finish.  These are so […]

Lancome ReDefines Mascara and Eyeliner

People always ask me how to apply liquid eyeliner, and I always say “practice, practice, practice!” because the truth is that I’ve watched dozens of videos of famous makeup artists and Instagrammers applying eyeliner, and I don’t do it their way.  I do it my own way and it seems to come out fine but […]
