How - To: Bold Red Lip

Posted 6:40 PM by

Make a statement this winter and bring a signature red lip into your makeup routine. The red lip has long been a popular look among women of all generations. It is an attention grabber in the best kind of way.

To find your perfect shade of red lipstick, take certain factors into account. A red with a blue undertone will make your teeth appear whiter than they are and is favorable to people with fair skin. If your skin tone is more golden, choose a red with an orange undertone or a deep burgundy shade. And a true red-red shade will look good on almost anyone.

Just make sure to apply the rest of your makeup to flatter your lip. A neutral dark-lined eye with a few coats of mascara is a great choice. Don't have too many focal points on your face....the lip is your focal point, not bold eyes. If you take all of these tips into account, you will have the holiday makeup look that your family and friends will envy!

To Die For: Youngblood Lipstick in "Vixen"

Posted 3:25 PM by




release your inner vixen

This fall and winter, one of the biggest makeup trends on the runway was bold, scarlet red lips. Red lips are popular for a multitude of reasons. The color draws attention and makes your mouth the focal point of your face. According to Oprah, a red color with a blue undertone will brighten your smile and make your teeth appear whiter. Red lipstick also has the ability to look fabulous on women of all ages and complexions.

Red lipstick has long been a popular shade throughout the decades. The look is reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor, and has been adopted in modern times by Dita Von Teese and Gwen Stefani. It also has had a revitalization via shows such as "Mad Men".

Youngblood Cosmetics offers a few variations of red lipstick, but my personal favorite is "Vixen". It is a bold red color, a shade that can be worn throughout the year. Youngblood Cosmetics was developed by a medical aesthetician who was unhappy with the makeup products that were available for her patients with traumatized skin. All of her products offered are easy to use, long-lasting, and stand up to heat, humidity, and perspiration.

Hot or Not: Kate's New Layers

Posted 4:30 PM by




hot or not?

- from The Herald Sun, November 28, 2012

"With a personal style that had become one of the most coveted - and copied - in the world, you can hardly blame her for fancying a bit of a change.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, turned heads with a new haircut  today - revealing a heavy parted fringe and more layers through her glossy mane.

The style, which also appeared darker than normal, was reminiscent of the haircut she favoured six years ago, at the height of speculation about her relationship with Prince William."


I love it!  I think it is HOT for sure. Her new layers offer more interest and movement. It makes her hair look more voluminous and adds a bit of sex appeal. Kate has become such a fashion icon. I think it is high time her hair style fits her fashion icon status. She is beautiful!


What do you think? Can you see the difference? Do you love her and her style as much as I do?

And most importantly....

Fifty Shades of Red

Posted 10:25 AM by



red hair with dimension

Balayage comes from the French word meaning “to sweep”.  To Balayage the hair is to use a brush to handpaint a thick mixture of lightener onto a section of hair using one of three paint designs.  These designs are singles, slants and V’s. The designers use a “sweeping” motion to apply lightener from thin at the roots to thicker towards the ends. It is free-form handpainted highlights.

There are many perks to balayaged highlights versus foiled highlights. Balayaged are painted in such a way that they grow out without creating a noticeable and obvious root. The result of the balayage process is a chunky highlight that looks naturally sunbleached, and as the hair grows out, the root will be concealed for the first few months by the thinner color placed at the base of the hair. Unlike foiled highlights, the balayaged pieces can be subtle or more intense and placed to not look as uniform and unnatural as the foiled option. It is also a process that can be used on every hair color, not just blondes.

Redheads in particular, look fantastic with some balayaged highlights painted in. There are so many different options and shades to choose from when balayaging a redhead. Lighter or darker, the added dimension to the red hair is always an appealing look. The girls in the pictures are a good example of what can be done with the balayage style. Added highlights can create an ombre effect or you could paint light pieces in throughout the entire head to have dimension everywhere.
