Summer 2016 Makeup Trend lessons are HERE!


The Summer 2016 makeup trend lessons are LIVE!

Coming up with these looks really took me out of my comfort zone. Big. Time.

First off I conquered my fear of applying liquid eyeliner decently in ONE TRY and ON CAMERA WTF WAS I THINKING and secondly applying a cream blush/highlight/contour product one time thru was terrifying. But, for the sake of educating my fellow makeup lovers/newbies, it needed to be done. Those two things are big for summer.


These looks were so fun to come up with. I took my mom on a little shopping trip to the meca (Sephora) to consult on the colors we use for all the looks. My mom has been in the beauty business practically her whole adult life and has such a great eye for what colors work best for every women. There is so much makeup in the world because we have so many different women (or men, whatever, judge free zone) and it can be a bit overwhelming when shopping for your right shades. 

Because we are a diverse group of women I have included this season a color guide to help you achieve all of these looks in the shades that compliment YOU! It's great and super handy for trips to wherever you purchase your makeup from. No more awkwardly standing in front of rows of makeup trying to figure out what shade is best for your skin, what eyeliner best brings out your eye color, or what shade of pink lipstick won't wash you out...I have you covered with this guide.
