Good afternoon everyone, and welcome back to another post ! Happy Wednesday I hope your Wednesday is going good so far. I am super excited because tomorrow is valentines day, I am not much into this holiday because I believe we should share our love with our loved ones everyday but I just love the fun of it so I do participate with my husband but i try not to go to crazy. But anyways I thought of valentines day and of course comes to my mind is a nice chic red lip. So i decided to do a post on the perfect red lip for us, not many might not know but there is so many shades of red so how do we know which looks best on us?

There is so many varieties of the shade of red, we all learn this in art, they all differ in hue, chroma and lightness. Very fair skin tones the best red shade to look for would be more of a pink tone red, this is because these are much of a cooler tone and would compliment your skin tone. Next would be fair skin tones the best red to go for is more of a blue to red shade this is because this can very much bring out the colour with you tone shade. Olive skin tones are more to work with a red to orange red shade, because of the undertone they have this red shade would make there lips pop ! For a dark skin tone your going to want to work with a full on red lip. More cool based tones look really good on more of a dark skin tone, rather than like a orange based red etc. More darker skin tones go with a lot of different red shades, bright shades compliment their skin tones and really make a statement.

There is a wide variety of reds out there, its best to have some fun and play around and find that red that suits you. I believe every women should have that one red lipstick that suits you, I have one and to be honest I bought it out of spite. I just pick a red lipstick from the kat von D line and I received tones of complements on it like every time I wore it out. And I came to realise that was the shade of red that suited my skin tone and the undertone. When choosing your going to want to always consider your skin undertone, and the three undertones to skin are cool this is pink, red and blueish undertones. The next is warm a yellow, peachy and golden undertones and then next to that is neutral a mix of warm and cool.

Final steps to determine your perfect red lip :

  1. Determine what your skin undertone is whether it be cool or warm.
  2. Warm reds are with warm skin and cool reds for cool skin
  3. Your going to want to match the depth of the shade to the depth of your skin !

And there you have it ! How to determine the perfect red lip for the perfect night out. Thanks for reading I hope this helps, remember to like & comment I always love hearing from you all! My next post will be up this Monday.

Good afternoon everyone, and welcome back to my blog! I am back with another blog post, this is one I’ve been really wanting to do for a while now. I actually have got this requested and I waited awhile because I wanted to do this one in more detail and depth from my last lashes post but I do not want to wait out any longer.

Now am going to let you know and be honest, I was never a lash pro that’s for sure. There was an actually time where I did not wear lashes at all and when I started I thought it was the most weirdest feeling ever! I was really bad at trying to attempt to put them on I actually gave up, until I practiced and practiced and found a way that worked for me. So this way might work for a lot or might not work for you at all and that’s okay. You just need to practice and find ways that work for you.

  1. Stretch my lashes – So first I stretch my natural lashes out with mascara. I grab my most favourite mascara and I put about two thin coats of mascara on. This brings out my natural lashes and also helps me hide my eyelash glue.
  2. Apply lash glue to lashes – So next you’re going to want to apply your glue to your false lashes. Make sure you apply a thin good coat across. I am also going to make a disclaimer if your lashes are too long and don’t of your eyes, your going to cut the end of your lashes and measure NEVER cut the beginning you will screw up your lashes. Then let dry for a few seconds.
  3. This next step is important because it’s how I get my lashes on of course. Next you’re going to grab the sides or lash part of your lashes and bring them over the root of where your lashes grow out from and hover them over and measure and make sure it all lines up perfectly. Then gently rest false lashes at the root of where your natural lash root is and bring down and use your finger and tap across to get it to fully stay.
  4. Brush out – So this is my next trick to make my natural lash and false to intertwine. I take my eyebrow brush and gently brush the false up and loosen them up so that they intertwine with my natural, this allow them to look natural and to stay put. I never apply mascara after because this allows my false to have a longer life span and also my last step plays that role already which is why I cut out the step of applying mascara on my false.

And that is my secret to applying my lashes, I always get asked a lot how I get them perfectly on. This honestly shocks me because am no expert and also remind me of the time I struggled to even apply them, but I can honestly say that practice does make perfect. Hopefully I hope my tips are handy and I could help someone. If any of you would like any more posts on anything in detail I am happy to do it!
