How To Effectively Apply Lipstick!

This article has some useful tips on how to apply lipstick as well as do’s & don’ts!

Sneak Peak of the Tips you will find in this article:
  • Not all lipstick shades look good on everyone. Your skin color will determine what shades are right on you. You may like a lipstick on your friend, but it may not look good on you. Orange or brown shades, including corals, look good on few people. These shades tend to make teeth appear yellow.
  • Camouflage yellowed teeth. To downplay a yellow cast to teeth, try lipsticks with a bluish undertone. Shades that work include plums, pinks, wines and violets, according to Lazarus, a NYC makeup artist, in the June, 2007, issue of O magazine.

Pumps By Day…Sandals By Night: MINX Pedi To The Rescue!

Do you have the same problem BSB has….chipped toe nail polish the day after your pedicure because…hello…you have to wear pumps (closed toed shoes) to work! That’s a sure fire way to ruin your fresh paint job! So, instead of polish try a Minx Pedicure! This stuff’s amazing!!! I can wear my pumps all day long...feeling free to display my sandal ready toes at night…and the best part is no chipped polish! The minx pedi should last 3-4 weeks and is a great way to have fun with the nails on your toes & not your hands…so your boss and other colleagues will have to continue to wonder if you have a wild Sasha Fierce side! LOL

Oxfords...Preppy Meets Hot! Choose Carefully...

So, we can get with some of the oxford styles...pretty much anything with a heel, and the oxford boots are super cute (especially in suede)! Now, the flats on the other hand...I think the jury is still out on some of those:) You belles better make up your mind quickly because this is the must have shoe for the fall. Anyone already rockin' a pair? Do share:)

Bless The Belles!

God is awesome! It's so easy to get caught up in the "grass is greener on the other side of the fence" routine that everyone else subscribes to; somehow overlooking that God chooses to bless us with new mercy, grace and favor every single day! Let's choose this week to be thankful! We've learned that by finding peace and joy in God, our circumstances don't seem so heavy...and eventually genuine gratitude opens the door to a true sense of purpose, and blessings beyond belief!

Have a blessed week! It often starts by choosing to be a blessing to someone else:)
