And Another One..

Here's a fun fact. 
My yoga studio is located right next door to Ulta

Do you know what this means?
It means I can't go get my ohm on,
without purchasing a beauty product. 
Or two. 

yoga is supposed to make you beautiful inside and out, right? 
That's how I roll. 

This week I fell for another lipstick.
Even though I already have too many enough nude shades at home,
I couldn't resist purchasing this pinkish hue from Too Faced.
It goes on as smooth as butter,
and is even infused with champagne essence!
Everyone knows I'm a sucker for a little bit of bubbly..
I absolutely adore wearing nude lipsticks,
because I feel like it makes my lips look... large and in charge, ok?
But here's an issue I've come across a few times -
depending on how fair my skin is at any given moment,
sometimes wearing a really light shade on my lips can make me look like...
well, like I don't have any lips at all.
The perfect solution is a little bit of nude lipliner.
Nothing too dark people!!
I've donned the "chola" look a few times in my junior high years - it wasn't the most flattering on me.
This new liner that I just got from Smashbox seems to be the perfect hue for my skintone.
It's about a level higher than most nude lipsticks I own,
and blends perfectly to make my lips stand apart from the rest of my face.

I combined my latest purchases with a dramatic brown smokey eye this weekend for my friend's bachelorette party,
and was pretty satisfied with the results.
I'll be sure to post some pictures here later so you can let me know what you think.

Happy Monday everyone!!

I love Too Faced! It's my favorite makeup brand. I have some gloss from them but no lipstick yet. I'll have to keep this in mind!

I've come out of Ulta spending over $200 on "new spring/summer perfumes". That place has some enchantment on it, I think.
