Instagram Beauty Trends: 2016

We all know that there are a LOT of beauty trends out there that make us raise our eyebrows and say, “but who would ever wear that???” Well, I was doing some research this past weekend on the latest beauty trends (to stay updated and all that — I have a fear of missing out on new and exciting makeup trends), and I came across a couple that looked good on the models but I just couldn’t decide if the every day woman could pull it off without getting weird looks at the grocery story.

(The weather was about 16 degrees during this photo shoot so I can attest to this outfit being warm…) Continue reading

If you are one of those women that thinks for some reason you can’t pull off a rockin’ bold lip, I want you to think again. Just for a second, pretend that you don’t have that mindset. Stick with me until the end of this post, and if I haven’t convinced you to at least try to wear lipstick, by all means, you can leave the boldness to someone else.

Lipstick is, in my opinion, the best makeup product of all time. It completes every outfit, every makeup style…because even a “nude lip” requires some kind of lipstick or gloss to bring you to that perfect “no shade” color everyone covets.  Continue reading
