With an admitted weakness for sun-kissed skin, when it comes to achieving a beach-worthy glow, one thing we can’t live without is a Bronzer. I love looking like I was on a vacation in Ibiza. First, I always start with a Tinted Moisturizer($32.) Second, I use my Mineral Sheer Matte Bronzer ($36.) The way to an instant, warm sun-kissed glow.
GET THIS LOOK: we don’t want it looking fake, so don’t go too dark, just one shade up from your natural skin color. My Bronzer has natural micro-fine minerals and advanced pigment technology to deliver a sheer, healthy, bronzed finish. When applying a bronzer, use the Flat Bronzer Brush ($36.) in circular motion across the cheekbones, over the forehead, and on the tips of the nose and chin. Now the Bronzed Glow-y scheme doesnt stop there! I love mixing Taupe Tan and Bronzite Shadows($15.) over the center on the lids, and highlight the inner corners with Champange. Line and smudge top and bottom lash line with Luxe Creme Liner in Chocolate Mousse($21.) using the Mini Smudger Brush($18.) then coat the top and bottom lashes with Black Mascara($18.) To complete the look, apply Naked Bronze Lip Shine to the lips.
If you would like an all over body sun-kissed glow, try my The Face and Body Bronzer($43.) with a hint of shimmer. Enriched with moisturizing ingredients such as carrot oil, coconut oil, and aloe vera gel, this non-streak body bronzer keeps skin soft and silky.
Now you could look like you were on vaction in Ibiza! You Gorgeous Bronzed Beauty!
We’ve fallen head over heels in love with the ombré
look! We saw it in hair and in nails and the
ombré lip is the next big thing!
This technique is a two-tone look that subtly contours the mouth. A darker shade around the rim of your lips adds definition, while a slightly softer tone in the center reflects light and creates the illusion of fuller, juicier lips. “The key is to use two shades in the same color family. “They should gradually fade into each other for an ombré effect.”
GET THE LOOK, with a firm brush to precisely apply a warm red, try Stefanie G’s IMPULSE and blend lightly toward the center. Next, I apply a dark red lip liner in EARTH RED, and then blend around the line of the lip. I prefer to apply the liner after the lipstick, because the pencil just glides on instead of tugging on a dry lip. I then apply just a dab of concealer into the middle of the top and bottom lips,blend and VIOLA!
Remember whenever you make a bold lip statement, keep the rest of your makeup lowkey as not to compete. Obviously this look is for the adventurous, but you can still apply the concept of adding light to the center of your lips for dimension and a fuller effect.

Alot of women shy away from red lipstick, but anyone can wear it. The most
important thing to consider when wearing red lipstick is picking the right
shade. All reds are not created equal – finding the right one for you and
wearing it properly will make all the difference.
REDS are divided into two basic categories:
1- Cool blue-based shades, such as Stefanie G’sred in IMPULSE.This red flatters women with fair rosier skin tones
2- Warm orange-based shades, such as Stefanie G’s red in MICRO RED. This red is more appropriate for women whose skin has golden tan tones.
DON’T be caught…when smiling for that perfect Holiday photograph
and having lipstick on your teeth.
After applying your red lipstick, put your finger in your mouth, purse your lips
around it, then slowly pull it out to remove excess color.
