If November was a lip shade name, Cozy would be it!  (Or Thankful)  But Cozy is my lip of the week, so cozy it is!  These liquid lipsticks from mark. are a fabulous formula (see review here) so I decided to pick up another shade, Cozy.  This light pink shade is a really easy neutral shade.  I see this looking killer with a warm smokey eye for Thanksgiving!

I have the hookup on Lucy Hale’s beauty brave cover look! Lucy, mark.’s brand ambassador, is looking stunning on the current mag cover, launching the new color collection revamp from mark. (see my review here)  So stunning I needed to recreate and share the details!

Lucy is not only excited to show us the new color collection from mark., but you can get a good look at her cover look.  Her look flips the script on a smoky eye with dramatic sweeps of wine shadow and a lavender highlight on the brow bones.  Use a mix of liners and finish with a nude lip!

Makeup Monday: New Easy Summer Neutral Makeup

Makeup Monday: Easy Summer Neutral Makeup

Makeup Monday: Easy Summer Neutral Makeup

I don’t always do makeup Monday’s but when I do you know its something obsession worthy.  Lately, my summer makeup obsession are the new summer shades in classic formulas from mark.  They are super easy to use for a neutral makeup look that’s also summer friendly (aka heat proof).

mark. All Time Eye New Summer Shades

mark. Gloss Gorgeous New Summer Shades

mark. Gloss Gorgeous New Summer Shades

mark. came out with a few new shades in our old favorites for the summer.  2 new shades of their All Time Eye Hookup Longwear Shadow in Pennylane and Quicksand and 2 new shades of their Gloss Gorgeous Stay On Lip Stain in Hush and Sassy.  I have yet to try All Time Eye so I thought nows the time to pick up one of these new shades.  I went with Quicksand, a neutral beige color knowing I could use it alone or as a base for a more dramatic look.

mark. All Time Eye in Quicksand

mark. All Time Eye in Quicksand

Word On All Time Eye in Quicksand:  It’s really easy to apply.  The design is a wand like you would see for like concealer.  I apply it all over my lid and underneath and then using my pinkie I blend into the skin by lightly patting so there’s no hard lines.  I recommend applying one eye at a time.

mark. All Time Eye in Quicksand Swatch

mark. All Time Eye in Quicksand Swatch

Word on Gloss Gorgeous in Hush:  I kinda forgot how much I like the Gloss Gorgeous formulas.  I’ve gotten away from wearing gloss and really just wear balms or lipsticks, but Gloss Gorgeous is a thick gloss that’s not too sticky, that as it wears leaves a nice lip stain behind.  So you can apply this before you leave and have a good look all day long!  Hush is a really neutral light pink that wears almost sheer depending on your coloring.  It’s just the lightest pink tint which I really like for summer.

New Summer Shades. Gloss Gorgeous and All Time Eye

New Summer Shades. Gloss Gorgeous and All Time Eye

Both of these new shades I picked up work really well for a neutral summer makeup look and are super long lasting.  Especially work well for when you don’t really want to look like your wearing makeup (say at the beach/pool or playing in your summer softball league, etc.)  These shades would also be really good for a makeup beginner.  Additionally, they are super quick and easy to apply so when your too hot to do much of anything, reach for these.

For the my summer neutral makeup look I’ve paired these two with mark. Touch and Glow Shimmer Cubes, Avon Extra Lasting Concealer, mark.

Christmas Makeup – Emerald Eyes

Under a week until Christmas and the excitement is building!  I CAN’T WAIT for that warm and fuzzy feeling that only Christmas Eve magic can achieve!  I still have shopping to do and gifts to wrap but one thing for sure is I have plenty of inspiration for my Christmas look.  I have ideas on what to wear (here, here, here, and here!.. whew!), what to do with my nails (here and here) and now a makeup look perfect for Christmas through New Years!

Emerald Eyes and Melon Lip

Emerald Eyes and Melon Lip with mark. On The Dot Smokey Pallet

Inspired by Chloe Morello’s look I recreated an emerald eye with a melon lip, perfect for this holiday season!  I’m completely different tone than Chloe, plus I like a winged liner and don’t want to spend $30 on a single eyeshadow (that I can’t even find by the way, I looked).  Instead, I rather spend $16 on a whole pallet to recreate the look using mark. On The Dot Smokey Pallet.  Here’s my take on recreating an emerald eye for the holidays.

Eyes:  With a smokey dark eye, its best to do the eyes first, before the rest of the face for easy cleanup of any fall out.  Start with a primer, Avon Eyeshadow Primer.  Then using the included sponge applicator use shade 1 from the mark. On The Dot Smokey Pallet (top left) all over your lid.  Use an eyeshadow brush and blend in shade 2 (top middle).  Use a stiff brush (I used the mark eyeliner brush) in shade 3 (top right) and accent the outer v in the darkest green shade.  Use a soft blending brush to blend in the socket and right outside of it so there are no harsh lines (I used Avon’s Pro Crease Brush).  This next step is optional, but dab on a little gold eyeshadow concentrating in the middle of the eye ( I used mark. Eye Dream Of Glam pallet for this).  Like I said, I like a winged eyeliner so I used that same eyeliner brush that I used in my outer v for my eyeliner by wetting the brush and dipping it in shade 3 (top right) and shade 9 (bottom right) in that same mark. On The Dot Smokey Pallet to line my eyes and wing it out.  Under my eyes I used a little bit of shade 2 smoked out around my bottom lashes.  For the last finishing tough I highlighted my inner corner and brow bone with shade 7 (bottom left, white).

Face:  Avon Ideal Flawless Liquid Foundation ($12) with a little conturing using Avon Glow Bronzing Powder and mark. Just Blushing in Cameo.  For a highlighter, mark. Touch and Glow just on the high points of my cheeks.

Lips:  A more matte or creamy natural lip with melon tones looks really good with this eye.  Plus if you’re wearing black it really makes the whole look pop!  Use Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Creamy Melon.

All it takes is a little inspiration for the perfect look to come together.  I love love love the look Chloe created but my take works for me.  Are you inspired to re-create this look?  $16 for a whole pallet to re-create this look and more!  You can get the mark.

Holiday Styling Tips: Traditional Holiday Colors, Red and Green

Holiday Styling Tip:  Traditional Holiday Colors

Holiday Styling Tip: Traditional Holiday Colors

The holiday season is officially upon us!  Which basically means from now util New Years I’m themeing out my days with a little holiday cheer, mainly by wearing holiday colors!  Nothing signals the holidays more than traditional red and green.  Jill from My Sweet Obsessions and I have a few tips on how to wear the traditional red and green this holiday without looking like that crazy lady!

1.  Go one color all over!

mark. Everything Goes Shirtdress

mark. Everything Goes Shirtdress

Pick one color, red or green, and go bold!  Wear the all over shade as your base.  Even though typically this time of year I’m usually in red, but a dark green shirtdress is just as festive.  The mark. Everything Goes Shirtdress ($40) is the perfect pick!

Going For All Over Green!

Going For All Over Green!

 

2.  Stick to a classic shape.

Green Shirtdress For Holiday Outifts

Green Shirtdress For Holiday Outfits

When going all over in one color sticking to classic shapes keeps the look chic.  This also makes it more appropriate for daytime wear.  The shirtdress styling in the mark. Everything Goes Shirtdress is a cut that’s not only flattering on any shape, it’s also fitting for every occasion.  You might remember it as my pick for a transitional fall, you can see just how versatile this dress is!  Just unroll the tab sleeves and you have a winter look!  You could also add some tights and boots for colder weather too.

 

3.  Accent in red (or green). 

Red Accents With Avon Scarlet Collectible Pin and Scarlet Chandelier Earrings

Red Accents With Avon Scarlet Collectible Pin and Scarlet Chandelier Earrings

Because I’m going all-over green I’m accenting in red.  The small pops of red tie in the traditional red and green colors without going overboard.  Jewelry and shoes are the easiest and most logical but also think about places like your belt!  A red belt would of been awesome for my look, but I don’t have one. 😦  Next best thing, add a broach to the green belt that came with the dress!  The Avon 2014 Scarlet Collection Pin ($14.99) is the perfect little blingy broach for the task… and you might remember it from its staring role I’m my wedding!  I brought in our last styling tip with a little red plaid in my Shoedazzle pumps!

4.  Accent in red and green with your beauty look too!

Red Lips and Green Eyeliner for Holiday

Red Lips and Green Eyeliner for Holiday

Beauty is often forgotten as a part of your total look.  Try a green eyeliner like mark. No Place To Run in Grassroots ($9).  Pair it with a shimmery gold shadow from the Eye Dream Of Glam Eye Pallet ($40 last seen here and here) and a red matte lip, Avon Ultra Color Lipstick in Matte Ruby ($5.99).  Don’t forget your nails!  Add red or green to your tips like mark. Nailed It Duo in Firestarter and Hot Coal ($9).

 

5.  Go For Gold.

Sequin Gold Clutch and Red Plaid Pumps!

Sequin Gold Clutch and Red Plaid Pumps!

Gold accents against red and green look a little more glam than silver.  The warm tones compliment and step up your holiday look.  From my gold sequin clutch to the gold studs on my red plaid pumps, to the gold base in my jewelry, a little gold goes a long way!

Go For Gold!

Go For Gold!

 

Jill’s Styling Tip:  Think outside the box with nontraditional shades of the traditional holiday colors of green and red

Jill's Holiday Traditional Colors Look

Jill’s Holiday Traditional Colors Look

“Think of nontraditional shades of the traditional holiday colors in lime green and bright red. Balance out the bright colored top and scarf with a neutral black bottom. Add additional visual interest by wearing a black pant like the Night Gaze Jacquard Pant by mark in damask, jacquard fabric. These pants are perfect for the Holiday Season and beyond!” Jill from My Sweet Obsessions

Subtle Smokey Eye with mark. Eye Dream Of Glam Eye Pallet

SUBTLE SMOKEY EYE:  mark. Eye Dream Of Glam Eyeshadow Pallet ($40) with Gimmie A Look Brush Kit ($28).

Since your lips are neutral go bold on the eye, but not like “I’m going out!” bold, just daytime bold!  The mark. Eye Dream Of Glam pallet is the perfect glimmering shades that aren’t too shocking.  Go with shade 2 (top row, 2nd pan) as your base color all over the lid.  Dab shade 12 (third row, 4th pan) with an eyeshadow brush to the center of your lid and out.  Use the same eyeshadow brush to use shade 15 (row 4, 3rd pan) to accent your outer corner in a v shape and into the crease.  Since these are marbleized shades they aren’t too heavy and blend perfectly!
