It was all glamour and sophistication at last night’s 2012 Golden Globe awards. I watched the stars traipse down the red carpet looking for the most part stunning (didn’t care for Mila Kunis or Lea Michelle’s look, but whatever.) What continually caught my eye was the general trend for simple make-up and muted or nude lips. Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman, Kate Beckinsale, Stacy Kiebler – they all kept their lips very neutral so that their eyes and fabulous dresses were the main focus. These soft lip looks made Hollywood’s hottest women look beautiful, feminine and completely enviable.
Recreating lips like these is easy with the right lip stick and gloss.
The Hydrating Lipstick in Veronika by Jouer Cosmetics is the perfect neutral lip color. Its soft color has a slight shimmer to give your lips that star-like quality without being over the top. This smooth lipstick is made of moisturizing Brazilian Cupuacu Butter so it also protects your lips and provides beautifully smooth coverage.
Layer the Veronika with Armour Beauty’s Gypsy Shimmer Lip Gloss. This sheer light peach gloss has a touch of gold shimmer to add shine and a little drama. The color and shine is ultra-feminine and long-lasting, perfect for a glamorous night out.
I hate packing for vacations. I stress over all the different scenarios I might wish I had brought this and that, to the point that I overpack with butloads of clothes I never end up wearing. The same goes with beauty products and especially makeup. Am I really going to want to to a smokey eye to a beachside, picnic table resteraunt in the Carribean? No. Vacations are really about feeling beautiful and free and not wanting to spend all that extra time fluffing and primping in the morning when I could be relaxing. In saying that, I still want to look and feel beautiful, however there are products we can use to minimize time but also ensure our skin, hair and makeup are well looked after and not being neglected. Vacations are no reason to totally let yourselves go ladies...
Here is a list of our must have beauty products to take with you on vacation:
Adara Coconut Oil-Purely organic and uber-nourishing, this Coconut Oil is a saviour for healing sunburnt skin as well as being an overall skin conditioner. Use
it in your hair as a conditioning treatment as well!
