How to Avoid Makeup Meltdown!

Can you believe we still have over a month of summer temps? My biggest problem this time of year when it comes to makeup is the dreaded makeup meltdown. It’s not fun and doesn’t look good. Here are few I like that will help you avoid it this season.

Say-Buh-Bye-To-Makeup-Melt
Face Primer
GUERLAIN L’Or Radiance Primer ($74/1oz @ sephora.com, nordstrom.com) – a good face of makeup needs something to adhere to and this one gets my vote.

Setting Mist SUPERGOOP Supergoop! X MILLY Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50 ($28/3.4oz @ sephora.com) – keep it all in place with a good makeup setting spray. And this one has SPF 50 built in so you refreshing all day will give you a shot of protection from the sun.

Brow Gel PHYSICIANS FORMULA Brow Last Longwearing Brow Gel ($10.95 @ walgreens.com) – I inherited my father’s brows so my brow hairs get long so keeping them in place is a must. This duo adds a dash of color and the other end combs it all in place.

Blush – I usually go with a cream blush but this CARGO Swimmables Water Resistant Blush ($26 @ ulta.com, dermstore.com) is showing its strength. This one is sweatproof and waterproof so I’m restoring my faith in pressed powder during the summer again.

Anti-Lip bleeding LippieMAC Liptensity Lip Pencil ($21 @ maccosmetics.com, nordstrom.com) – I’ve been wearing these as full lip colors and the added benefit? No bleeding! The Marsala shade is a favorite. 

MascaraBENEFIT BADgal Waterproof Mascara ($19 @ benefitcosmetics.com, hsn.com) – one of my favorite mascaras for bad-girl lashes comes in a waterproof formula so it will totally stay on.

Budge-proof liner URBAN DECAY 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil ($21 @ urbandecay.com, sephora.com, ulta.com) – liner running down the face couldn’t look worse so prevent it with any of their 50+ shades.

3 Ways to Turn Up Your Beauty Look

You have an event coming up and you want to find the perfect dress, the highest heels, a good blowout, and oh, what should you do with your makeup for it? While you decide, here are a few products that can add a nice touch to your look that you might not have thought about.

No matter what trait you are looking to show off, I have some suggestions that have totally worked for me below.

Votre-Vu-Silk-Stockings-and-NARS-Monoi-Glow
*LEGS*

Make legs look silky smooth – temps will be warming up soon so skirts will be getting shorter again. Give legs and extra extra with one of these. It makes you look like you are wearing stockings when you’re not. VOTRE VU Silk Stockings in Classic Bronze ($38/3.38oz @ votrevu.com) or NARS Monoi Body Glow I ($59/2.5oz @ narscosmetics.com, sephora.com).

6 Life Changing Lip Liners

Do you wear lip liner? I don't know many who do but I have to with some lip formulas so the color doesn't seep into my lip lines. Don’t you hate that?

This post the other day got me thinking about one of the products I always keep at the ready. It's a clear lip liner. I can't believe I haven't covered this fully before as I discovered these quite a few years ago and I can't even remember the brand that introduced me!

What I like about them is that I don't have to match my lip color to it since they have no color. I really only use colored liner, it’s only for when I'm wearing a red as that shade is not as forgiving and you want a perfect outline of the lips when wearing it, like with any of these.

6-Lip-Liners-You-Need

Since I'm using these colorless ones as a barrier against bleeding, instead of lining lips around the very edge of the lip, I'm lining where my lip line ends and skin starts, so just around the lips themselves. 

So what are these made of? Housed as a pencil, most are mainly a soft wax with some silicones/mineral oil for slip. 

Here are some I recommend that span the price points:

MAYBELLINE Color Sensational Shaping Lip Liner in Clear ($7.99 @ walgreens.com, target.com)

URBAN DECAY 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Ozone ($20 @ sephora.com, ulta.com)

MAKE UP FOR EVER Lip Line Perfector ($20 @ sephora.com)

SEPHORA COLLECTION Beauty Amplifier Universal Lip Liner ($12 @ sephora.com)

ELF COSMETICS Lip Lock Pencil ($3 @ elfcosmetics.com)

MIRABELLA Perfecting Lip Definer ($20 @ dermstore.com)

Urban Decay Naked Petite Heat

Urban-Decay-Naked-Petite-Heat
Well this Naked Petite Heat from URBAN DECAY is a nice treat! Terracotta is the hottest shade in shadows right now and this little guy highlights it beautifully. These are 6 new shades inspired by the big sister palette, Naked Heat, and even though all the colors are used to create a basic eye look, it seems to be fitting for any season.

Like the majority of UD’s shadows, the shades are creamy powders (except the highlight) and blend so well and are some of my favorites. They just know how to create a good quality shadow!

Using-the-Urban-Decay-Naked-Petite-Heat-palette

In stores and @ urbandecay.com ulta.com and for $29.

Urban Decay x Kristen Leanne Kaleidoscope Dream Palette

Urban-Decay-x-KRISTEN-LEANN-Kaleidoscope-Dream-Eyeshadow-Palette
In continuing coverage of the URBAN DECAY x KRISTEN LEANNE Collection, we come to this  Kaleidoscope Dream Eyeshadow Palette. This palette is full of a lot of accent colors and I just love it so far! The pressed powders are all buttery smooth and seem to blend well. I wore Spitfire, a bright pink satin w/purple shift and the holographic green pearl shift shades called Leo, last night and they really kicked my eye look into overdrive.

Urban-Decay-x-KRISTEN-LEANNE-Kaleidoscope-Dream-Eye-Shadow-Palette-up-close

As with most UD products, they’re not afraid of bright or bold colors and every color in this palette just seems to go so well with the co-creator. I’m just ecstatic about this palette, if you can’t tell, and the price tag of $39 is so reasonable.

Urban-Decay-x-KRISTEN-LEANNE-Kaleidoscope-Dreams-front-and-back-of-palette
I do have to wonder about the “stay gold” written on the mirrors of this palette and the other two. Is it a reference to The Outsiders movie? I’m going to tweet her to find out.

Urban-Decay-x-KRISTEN-LEANNE-Kaleidoscope-Dreams-duo-sided-brush

Urban Decay always seems to pay attention to the brushes they include with a palette. This one has a nice blending brush on one side and a crease brush on the other. Nice!

Is this something you will be adding to your collection? Available @ urbandecay.com.

Urban-Decay-x-KRISTEN-LEANNE-Vice-Lipstick-name-on-lippies

Just out from URBAN DECAY is the UD x KRISTEN LEANNE Collection. I previewed the collection on my Instagram Stories and archived them, so please check the pics out and hopefully I can get the items reviewed quickly!

What it is: Kristen Leanne is a cruelty-free beauty influencer known for bright colors, glitter, beautiful tattoos and her full-of-life personality. Her videos range from everyday wearable looks to over-the-top glam tutorials, utilizing her artistry and creativity every step of the way. We tapped into Kristen's amazing makeup talent and discovered what inspires her. Then we bounced color ideas back and forth until we created her perfect makeup collection.

First up, the ud x KRISTEN LEANNE Vice Lipsticks ($17 @ urbandecay.com). I just love all the holographic colors of the packaging! From the box to the hot pink caps, they really paid attention to detail to make it all Kristen Leanne. And her name on the body of the lipsticks is also a nice touch.

Urban-Decay-x-KRISTEN-LEANNE-Vice-Lipstick-bottoms

Colors:

  • Spellbound (deep plum) mega matte
  • Cloud9 (magenta) comfort matte
  • Bun Bun (nude) comfort matte – Bun Bun is the nickname of her bunny, Brixton!

Like all VICE lipsticks, these are smooth as can be with the mega matte lasting longer on lips than the comfort mattes.

Urban-Decay-x-KRISTEN-LEANNE-Vice-Lipstick-swatches

From L to R above: Spellbound, Cloud9, Bun Bun.

Pick up the whole collection on January 6, 2018.
