What Eye Makeup Goes With Red Lipstick

What Eye Makeup To Wear With A Red Lip

What Eye Makeup To Wear With A Red Lip

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… red lipstick season! Not that red lips aren’t a thing all the time but for the holiday’s people who don’t normally wear red feel a little more inclined to bust it out and sport a red lip. Honestly, it’s all you need to create a festive look, but the question always arises, what eye do you pair with a red lip? Especially if you are not one who wears red lips often you don’t want to go to big on the eyes and just feel “over madeup” especially for daytime wear.  Do not fear because I have the PERFECT and easy! eye look for all your red lipped outings!

Perfect Holiday Makeup Red Lip and Neutral Eyes

Makeup Monday: Super Quick When Running Super Late

Makeup Monday:  Super Quick When Super Late

Makeup Monday: Super Quick When Super Late

Ugh Mondays!  Regardless if you had a busy weekend or a chill one Monday’s are always tough. Which usually means I’m running late and something has to suffer. Thats when the super quick makeup formula is applied!

Concealer + Bronzer/Blush + Mascara + Bright Lip = Winning!

All The Products Needed For A Quick Look

All The Products Needed For A Quick Look

This formula is just enough to brighten up your face and look presentable for what the day brings.  I’ll start with Avon Extra Lasting Concealer around the eyes, nose and chin.  The wand makes it quick to apply and fingers melt it into the skin for nice coverage.  A blush and bronzer duo makes for a quick grab when doing this quick makeup look, I like Elf Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder in St. Lucia.

For Face:  Concealer and Bronzer/Blush

For Face: Concealer and Bronzer/Blush

When doing a quick eye look the key is just to open up the eyes with some mascara.  The best mascara for the job is the Avon Big and False mascara, because it’s a fiber lash mascara it almost curls your lashes for you, adds volume and length and gives you a full lash look that can stand on it’s own.  If you have a few extra minutes add a shimmery neutral eyeshadow and a quick swipe of eyeliner and you’re all set!

For Eyes:  Avon Big And False Mascara

For Eyes: Avon Big And False Mascara

Lastly, it’s all about the lips.  I bolder color on your lips will tie everything together looking like you spent more than a minute on your look.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again these new Avon Perfectly Matte Lipsticks are the business so try a shade like Ravishing Rose for a bright choice.

For Lips:  Avon Perfectly Matte in Ravishing Rose

Easy Summer Makeup with 1 Product – mark. Touch And Glow Shimmer Cube In Coral

Easy Summer Makeup With mark.

Easy Summer Makeup With mark.

Summer makeup needs to be 3 things:   1.  Easy, no one wants to spend all morning putting on layers and layers of makeup, esp in summer humidity.  2.  Fresh, an over done face just doesn’t work in the summer time, sorry it just doesn’t.  3.  Packable, with summer vacations, day trips, and just being on the go you need something transportable and isn’t going to spill or burst with elevation changes.  I found THE product that fits all these and more mark. Touch and Glow Shimmer Cubes in Coral.

mark. Touch and Glow Shimmer Cube in Coral

mark. Touch and Glow Shimmer Cube in Coral

One of mark.’s cult favorite products is it’s touch and glow shimmer cube (original, see post here).  Earlier this year they released a coral version, and honestly, I have no idea how I waited this long to pick this one up! This is the 1 product solution to your summer makeup routine.  The obvious use is to use it as a blush and/or highlighter but this killer product is one multi-tasking cream to powder wonder!

Summer Makeup Look Using ONLY mark. Touch and Glow Shimmer Cube in Coral.

Summer Makeup Look Using ONLY mark. Touch and Glow Shimmer Cube in Coral.

For my easy summer makeup look I used the Touch and Glow Coral on my cheeks, for contouring, as eyeshadow and on my lips!  Only tools I used were my fingers and the mark. Travel Pro Brush Set.  Because it’s smaller I was able to get more control.  Here’s how I used it:

On Cheeks: I swirled all colors and applied to the apples of my cheeks using the mark. Travel Pro Blush Brush.   For contour I used my finger in shade 6 (2nd row far right shade) and went along my temples to under the cheek in a C shape.

mark. Touch and Glow Coral  For Eyes

mark. Touch and Glow Coral On The Eyes

On Eyes:  I used my fingers to apply shade 2 (top row middle shade) all over from lash line to brow.  Then I used shade 3 (top row far right shade) on my inner corner and half of lid and under the lower lashes.  Lastly I used a mix of shade 1, 4 and 6 on the outer half of my lid.  I lined my eyes again using the travel pro brush set with mark. Saved By The Gel in Cool Azul from the Instant Vacation Buenos Aires Vibe Collection (see here).  Finished with Avon Super Extend Winged Out Mascara.

On Lips:  For this very on trend lip color I used shade 8 (bottom row middle shade) applied with the lip brush from the mark. Travel Pro Brush Set.  Done and done!  It’s similar finish to those matte liquid lipsticks (like from Nyx) that are super popular.  It even lasted through eating lunch!

Word Of Alicia Review on mark. Touch and Glow Shimmer Cubes in Coral:  Anything that multi-tasks this well gets two thumbs up from me.  Let me note it’s really hard to take pictures of your makeup (my eyes did not want to open!) so these were taken in the shade so the colors are a bit more vibrant in real life.  The color pay off on this is great but it isn’t a super long lasting formula.  When applied in the morning before work I had to touch up after work before meeting up for dinner, but really, that’s still pretty decent.  And I like how it has just the right amount of shimmer nothing too overwhelming and will be flattering on all skin types and tones.  I’m just mad I didn’t get this one sooner!

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. On The Dot Smokey Pallet and all the mark. and Avon products I used here:  http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger  and don’t forget about that FREE 2 DAY SHIPPING promo code 2DAYSHIP going on now!  Get the products you need to finish out your holiday beauty look!

The Essentials All Girls Need In Their Lives

The bare necessities of life – ah, the stuff we girls just couldn’t live without. Naturally the girls nowadays will have a much different list of essentials for the girls from a few years ago, in fact as things progress therefore the list will inevitably change.

Here are a few essentials which most ladies (and very often boys) just could not live without:

• The internet – how on earth did we ever manage without it? Are you able to imagine trying to last a week, a day and even an hour without internet connection? It’s like somebody has chopped your arm off. If we needed to take an umbrella, without the internet we wouldn’t be able to function these days – we wouldn’t be able to shop, to find our way about, to communicate with this friends and family, to know what’s going on on earth – heck, we wouldn’t even know what the weather was like and. It seems that the times of looking out of the window to check whether it’s raining are long gone.

internet

• Cell phone – this sort of ties along with the internet. Not only do we demand that the internet is at our beck and call in any way hours from the night and day at home, we want it basically we are out and about as well. We want so as to send instant messages to family and friends, take a photo and have it whizzing through cyber space to show off to our own nearest and dearest. We want for the greatest Chinese restaurant within a half mile radius, know when our favorite boutique has a sale on and whether the train is going to be delayed for the journey home. You want it all and we want it NOW.

• Daily shower – “cleanliness is next to Godliness” my Grandmother used to say, and she only bathed once a week in front of the fire. Today we won’t step on the front door until we’ve experienced a nice hot shower to wake us up leaving us feeling fresh and clean. How times have changed.

• Makeup – this is definitely one for your girls. We have now this morning routine which cannot be broken – get up, go on a shower, do our hair and apply our makeup before even popping in the market to the store for a bottle of milk. Obviously it helps if our makeup is organized for quick application inside the mornings – a nice makeup brush holder keeping things tidy and a cosmetic organizer so that we can easily pick out the lipstick we have been in the mood for at a moment’s notice. If you’re interested, they’ve got some great products at thesalonoutlet.com.

• Dessert – dessert is definitely the ultimate comfort food, it kind of “mends everything”. It may mend a broken heart, it can raise your spirits following a sad experience; it can help to fill the void of loneliness on the Saturday night without a date. If you have the foresight to stick to dark chocolate it’s pretty good for you too – but maybe that’s going a bit too far. A lot of women find a sweet treat fits in perfectly after having a busy day.

desserts

• A cup of tea or coffee – how else can anyone get moving in the mornings? It takes no less than three servings of strong coffee for some before eyes are open and sufficiently focused to even attempt any one of the other things at the top of the list . . . and I’m sure it’s not just me.

a hot cup

Thanksgiving Day Makeup - Subtle Smokey Eye and Nude Lips

Thanksgiving Day Makeup – Subtle Smokey Eye and Nude Lips

NUDE LIP:  mark. All Butter Now in Bare All ($11)
Since you’ll be shoveling, errrr gracefully placing delicious food in your mouth all day going with a simple lip and a bolder eye is a good idea.  A nude lip doesn’t need to be reapplied all day long to keep the integrity of the look, just at the start and after you eat!   mark. All Butter Now is like a balm but with full color, it’s the perfect choice!

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

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!

Subtle Smokey Eye and Nude Lip Look for Fall

Subtle Smokey Eye and Nude Lip Look for Fall

Use a little bronzer to define your cheeks and as your blush and you’ve got a look that’s perfect for fall!  This look can easily work for the day, and keep you look great all day long with the killer formula in the Eye Dream of Glam pallet.  And it looks great with the perfect fall sweater, mark.

Nailed It – Instant Vacation Marrakesh

I already  introduced you to the limited edition Marrakesh beauty collection but I left out one major beauty component, the nail polish!!!  Of course this is my favorite, the Nailed It Trend Marrakesh Mini Nail Lacquers.  With nails being the hottest trend around, these gorgeous shades of Marrakesh take yours to an exotic new place! Saffron, a glistening warm gold, will add spice to your look while mint tea, a lush, shimmering green, warms up any ensemble.

mark. Marrakesh Nailed It and Stack and Style Ring

mark. Marrakesh Nailed It and Stack and Style Ring

What I love the most about this duo set is they are mini’s, only 0.09 fl. oz. each so for a small price ($7) you get just enough to last you a season then on to the next trend.  I HATE wasting polish and this is the perfect amount.  AND in coordinating shades your mani pedi setup is already figured out or do what I did and wear the coordinating shades together.  I wore the gold shade on my thumb, pointer and pinky then the green shade on my ring and middle then freehanded a stripe of gold on top of the green.  The mini brush make it super easy.

How awesome does the Stack and Style Ring ($18) look with this polish!?!  I love how expertly coordinated the Marrakesh collection is!  You can shop the ring, polish and the rest of the Marrakesh collection at my eBoutique:  http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger
