Red, White and Beauty

Are you having 4th of July withdrawals? Not to fret here is a Beauty Must Have Independence Day Style.

Now that you know how to protect your lips with sunscreen here are 3 more of my favorite lip products. Every girl should have that “go to red lipstick”. One of my favorite red lipsticks is Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Color 630 Red Revolution . The feel is creamy, the look is crisp and vibrant. Most importantly its very very moisturizer. A little goes a long way. The cost is only $7.49.




For as long as I can remember I’ve always carried Vaseline. Before I was allowed to wear lip stick  this was my lip gloss. I would stand in front of the mirror and pretend the white tube was lipstick. Before the coconut oil craze Vaseline Lip Therapy Advanced Healing Tube was the go to item for burns, cuts you name it. I use this product mainly for my lips. Its a great protectant in the winter and the main ingredient petroleum jelly soothes and keeps lips moisturize. A LOT GOES A VERY LONG WAY. Shopping secret: I usually buy this item from Walmart in multiples and here is why….The tube is small enough to not see in a bag or I simply lose it. A tube costs less than $1. You will thank me later.



I definitely stepped out the box with this lip color. NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Little Denim Dress is a showstopper. This color attracts everyone. You either love it or hate it. The color is bold, bright, vibrant and creamy. I would recommend applying this product last when applying your makeup. Pigmentation is high. Again for $7.00 this lipstick goes a very long way.




Next week Beauty Must Have will be EXTRA special. Make sure you

It is officially fashion week in New York City. While everyone is briskly walking from show to show love will be on the hearts of many. Reservations have been made, flowers are being purchased still not sure what to wear?

On Valentine’s Day the obvious color of choice is red, but how about winter white with accents of red.   I paired this winter white with lace detail dress from Express with a pair of peep toe vintage red pumps.

To keep it fun and flirty for accessories I am wearing red lip earrings and a choker. It is VERY cold outside so why not wear a vintage fur stole to keep warm!

To pull  the entire outfit together you can’t go wrong with a red lip. I am wearing NYX Lip Liner in Hot Red and Mirenesse Mattfinity Lip Rogue in Tokyo.
