Happy Lunar New Year!  I’m kinda missing the parade that used to pass by my College Ave appt in State College on this festive day.  So I guess I’ll celebrate with an Asian influenced OOTD.

Lip Of The Week: Avon Perfectly Matte Coral Fever

Avon Perfectly Matte in Coral Fever

Avon Perfectly Matte in Coral Fever

Makeup Monday woke up with a fever… and the only prescription is more cowbell!  …Or a really good matte lipstick in a red coral shade that instantly brightens up a Monday.  I’ve definitely been digging these Perfectly Matte lipsticks but this red coral shade (Coral Fever) has to be a top pick from the bunch.  It’s a little more wearable than a true red and instantly brightens up the face coming off a sickness 😦  I paired it with mark. Touch and Glow in Coral for the rest of my Makeup Monday look.  I swirled all the shades together for a blush and just used the shimmering beige shade (cube 3) as an eye shadow with mark. Saved By The Gel liner and Avon Big and False masacra.  Topped it all off with this Avon Perfectly Matte Lipstick in Coral Fever.

Lip Of The Week: Avon Beyond Color Lipstick in Uptown Pink

The Word On Uptown Pink: Maybe it’s early but Valentine’s Day inspiration is creeping in on me with pinks, reds and the like.  I literally wore this mauve pink shade everyday this week.  That could also be that I think it looks best with a simple makeup look and that’s all I’ve been motivated to do lately.  Think concealer, highlighter/blush, lots of mascara and a little eye liner.  Super quick and the trendy lip shade steals the show so you look put together.  Speaking of trendy it kinda mimics the upcoming Rosie shade from Kylie Lipkit only with a satin finish so more wearable.  And a fraction of the cost… Beyond Color lipsticks are on sale for 2 for $7.99!  (shop it here)

Lip Shades You Need For Spring

Happy first day of spring!  As the days continue to climb a little warmer, and the sunlight lasts a little longer it’s time to freshen things up.  Time to clean the windows and open them up for some fresh air.  Time for fresh flowers to brighten things up.  Time to refresh your look the easiest way possible, your lips!  Here are the top 5 lip shades for spring:

1.  Deep Berry/Wine

D&G Spring 2015

D&G Spring 2015

Think just finished eating a bowl full of berries or wine stained look rather than a deep dark color.  Dolce and Gabbana’s spring 2015 show nailed this look and made super wearable.  Try a lip stain (like Avon Extra Lasting Lip Stain + Balm in Berry bitten) or a lip pencil (Like Avon Ultra Color Lip Pencil in Pouty Plum) for more of a effortless look.

2.  Orange Red

Carmen Marc Valvo Spring RW 2015

Red is always a classic, but reds that lean toward orange are super hot for spring.  It’s like you’re taking the classic and making it citrus-tastic for spring!  A bold red lip was huge on the spring runways.  Try Avon Ultra Color Lipsitck in Poppy Love.

 

3.  Hot Coral

Coral goes mega-watt for spring!  Pair it with the bronzed cheeks we saw all over the runways and you’ll look instantly ready for spring break… or that you took a killer spring break, either way win win.  Try Avon Ultra Color Indulgence in Peach Petunia.

4.  Peachy Melon

Switch out your nude lip for a peachy melon lip.  It’s basic enough to go with a smokey eye but steps up the game with making things just a little prettier for spring.  Try Avon Ultra Color Absolute lipstick in creamy melon.

5.  Pink

Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Pink Renewal

Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Pink Renewal

From baby doll to bubble gum to bright, pink as always and will always be a spring go-to.  We saw all the ranges at fashion week so pick a pink that you feel comfortable wearing.  Fuchsias work for any skin tone for a bright like Try Avon Ultra Color Bold in Fearless Fuchsia.  If you want something more demure go with a rose like Avon Ultra Color Indulgence Lip Color in Rose Bouquet.  Try my all time favorite pink Avon Ultra Color Absolute in Pink Renewal.
