Shades Of Grey

IMG_2783IMG_2796IMG_2800 Hello everyone!! Grey is an essential shade in everyones (especially my) wardrobe. But sometimes when it comes to beauty products grey is almost become a forgotten color. Which is why today I’m sharing with you an assortment of my favorite Shades Of Grey.

The Bobbi Brown Shimmer Wash Shadow in Heather Mauve inspired this entire post. I would describe Heather Mauve as the perfect silver taupe shade. On an everyday basics you can apply a sheer wash of color or for a night out look layer the shadow on top of a cream. Sticking with the Bobbi Brown theme my favorite cream shadow is from their Long Wear Cream Shadow line in Sand Dollar. It compliments Heather Mauve to a tee, I would say this is my night out dynamic duo. If your want a more affordable option Maybelline has a full range of their Color Tattoos which are creamy and super pigmented. I would recommend the shade Tough As Taupe.

When your in a rush eyeshadows sticks are going to be your best friend. L’oreal has recently came out with their new Infallible Eye Crayons. One of my favorite colors from the range is called Forever Taupe, it’s a cool toned silver with the perfect amount of shimmer for an evening look. If you don’t want to go full on grey smokey eye and just want to deepen your eyeliner then you should go with another new release from L’oreal. It’s the Infallible Smokissime Eyeliner in Taupe, this creates more of a smokey liner effect. I would consider this more of a gel like texture opposed to a cream.

I hope you enjoyed this post and if I’m missing any of your favorite Shades Of Grey leave me a comment down below. As always thank you so much for reading this, don’t forget to follow me on all my social media sites and I will talk to you soon!!

Departure Into Reds

IMG_2748

Hello everyone!! Sorry I have been MIA over the past couple weeks I’ve just wanted to take some time off and relax but don’t worry because I won’t being taking a break anytime soon. I wanted to come back with a bang so today I’m sharing with you  my Departure Into Reds. I’m the kind of person that stays in my comfort zone and never trys anything new. My collection of neutral lip colors can sometimes feel overwhelming so stepping out of my bubble with a red is refreshing.

Lipsticks: I’m not a huge fan of matte lipsticks but the new Milani lipsticks have changed my life. They don’t bring out the dry parts of your lips.  The have colors ranging from everyday nudes to quite dramatic colors. In the collection they have the perfect classic red color called 67 Matte Confident. If you want a brighter sheer red lip then you should go for the Almay Butter Kiss Lipstick. I got the red that is suited for light to medium skin tones but if you have a darker skin tone they also have a red suited for you. A new product at the drugstore that has the perfect matte red is from Rimmel. It’s the Rimmel Show Off Lip Velvet in 505 Burning Lava. This is more of a liquid lipstick formula that just glides on the lips. The perfect blood red color.

Lip Liner: Lip liner is not a must have on an everyday basics but for a special occasion it will make your lipstick last longer. At the drugstore there is very slim pickings on lip liners. But I finally found the Covergirl Lip Perfection in the shade 215 Passion.

Lip Balms & Scrubs: Whenever you rocking a bolder lip you need to make sure that your lips are smooth and hydrated. To exfoliate my lips I use the Lush Santa’s Lip Scrub. I’m pretty sure this lip scrub is seasonal but if you can get your hands on it you need to. After you exfoliate your lips you should go in with a lip balm. My favorite is the Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me but if you prefer a potted balm I recommend the Bath and Body Works one in Garden Strawberries.

I hope you enjoyed this on my Departure Into Reds and if I’m missing any classic red lip colors leave me a comment down below telling me which ones. As always thank you so much for reading this blog post and I will talk to you guys soon!
