Black lipstick is something that I never dared to try and pull off.  I always thought it was too risky and too dark for my personality!  But turns out, it’s a growing trend that I’ve seen anyone from celebrities to some of my closest friends start to try out.  If you’re easing into the black lipstick world, here are 3 steps to pull it off!

  1. First, you’ll need to focus on your eyes. Chelsea Crockett - Shay Mitchell If you try and wear black lipstick when your eye makeup is light, your lips will overpower your whole look.  Find an eyeshadow palette that doesn’t necessary have just black in it, but darker shades that will compliment dark lips, as well.  This is crucial!  Try a different blend of darker shades on your eyelids and lower lash line like Shay Mitchell did on the right.  She totally rocks this look!
  2. Next comes the contour.  Try out a darker contour that really defines your cheek bones and jawline.  Make sure you have a lighter highlight to add above the contour line as well.  This will create the illusion that your contour is darker than it is.  That being said, don’t forget to blend! 🙂
  3. Lastly, finish off some final touches such as eyebrows and obviously, lips!  The key to this look is making everything a little darker than usual.  Unfortunately, black lipstick doesn’t work too well with the natural look, so define and darken up those brows!

If you still don’t think you can pull it off, try out these three steps for yourself.  It’s a fun look to mix things up a bit every once in a while!

Winter is a time when most people’s complexion tends to be lighter.  We spend less time in the sun and more time indoors, therefore the sun hardly reaches our skin.  Lipstick can be a scary thing to try when you’re feeling pale and many colors can wash you out easily.  It’s important to find the perfect winter shade for any occasion.Chelsea Crockett- dark winter lipstick

It’s officially time to put your hot pinks and corals to the side.  Winter is the time to break out deep reds and plum purples.  If you’re aiming for a bold look, try one of these colors with a smoky eye to balance out your face.  In contrast, icy colors such as a cool nude or light pink are also acceptable for a more laid back approach.  Pair this with a shimmery eye and thin eyeliner.  It’s so important to keep a good balance throughout your whole face.  You don’t want one half to be too overdone.  The most important rule when picking a winter color is to avoid warm oranges and hot pinks.  They scream summer!  Don’t get your seasons confused!

Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and rock a maroon lipstick.  It will look beautiful!

XOXO,

Do you hate going jean shopping?  The sizes are crazy, some are too short or too long, they fit in the waist, but are too tight in the thighs, the color is weird, etc.  There are so many crazy reasons why jean shopping can stink!  I’m sure many of you can relate when I say that some styles of jeans look awkward on me.  Well, I’m going to help you find your perfect jean for your body type!Chelsea Crockett- jeans

Curvy body type: Try a solid colored jean.  When the jean is faded, it can create the illusion of a thicker leg.  No one wants that!  Also, try rolling your jeans at the hem.  This will add width at the hem, which balance out the hips.  Slim skinny jeans will also flaunt your figure!

Long legs:  If you’ve got long legs, then you’ll want to show them off!  Try buying jeans that are tight in the thighs and wide at the leg.  This will make your legs look even longer and really show them off!

If you’re short: Tight skinny jeans can actually make you look shorter.  Try a pair of loose jeans that don’t hug your body.  They’ll create a good illusion.

Hopefully this little guide helps you on your next jean shopping adventure!!
