After the popularity of my Kiss Proof Lipstick review, I decided to do another scientific study.. this time of one-step liquid lip colors. I’m sharing the best and worst lipsticks for kiss-proof, smudge-proof, sweat-proof, and water-proof lips.
With so many beauty bloggers and YouTube gurus showing of their enormous makeup collections, it can be easy to feel like you need a whole room dedicated to lip glosses to look gorgeous. I’m here to tell you.. you don’t. I wanted to start a new video series of basic makeup “wardrobes” for each type of makeup. This is essentially a breakdown of the basics you need in your makeup collection to always look your best. Maybe you’re a young girl just starting out playing with makeup and want to take it to the next level… maybe you’re a recent college grad who wants to look more professional for their first job and new life… or maybe you’ve been using the same makeup for years and need to switch things up… this series is for you!
I’m staring with foundations (and a little about primers) because they are literally the foundation of you makeup. I’m sharing the 3 essential foundations every women should have in her makeup collection… and a few tricks for picking a shade and getting the most out of what you have.
I’ve seen so many Audrey Hepburn/Breakfast at Tiffany’s makeup tutorials, and while I love seeing everyone’s interpretation of the look, they all seem to be very dramatic and sometimes costumey. Holly Golightly was a lady of the night, but her makeup was always so fresh and natural. I wanted to take that look and create a tutorial for Everyday Starlets… this look is easy, and perfectly acceptable for any occasion.
I have a little history with Lana Del Rey…. well not her, but her fans. Last awards show season, E! Fashion Police tweeted a pic of Lana on a Red Carpet with a joke about her outfit. As a comedian and fashionista, I tweeted a tag to the joke (‘tag” is a technical comedy term, but it just means adding a little funny line after a joke). The truth is, I like Lana. I love her look, and her dress was not that bad… but I’m a comedian when I’m not beauty blogging, and I thought of a funny line, so I went for it. Apparently, Lana has some very devoted fans on Twitter, and I got a lot of hate tweets. I thought it was a little bit of an over reaction considering that what I said was not that insulting, but I wanted to make it up to Lana fans…. and show my admiration for her look… buy making a makeup tutorial. I’m using her actual favorite lip color… and it is my new favorite nude color!
Also, I’m trying something new with my editing and I’d love to know what you think. I just thought I would change it up from my usual talk-through.
