The art of contouring your face is a skill that anyone who is into makeup should try to master. It’s one way to transform your face and highlight your best features. When done well, it is a clever way to make the unique features of your face pop and enhance your bone structure. Contouring accentuates the facial features you already have and in some cases can give the illusion of what you wish you had. READ MORE

If there's any time of year that you absolutely should be wearing red lipstick, that time is right now! Why not go for a dark red matte lip? It's as sweet as red velvet cake on your mouth.

What does it take to look this cool? Apparently three people. This makeup look was a collaborative effort. Nikia did her own lips, Angel did her eyes and Lindsey did her beautiful, glowing illuminator and cheeks. Something came up and Lindsey had to jet out so Nikia and I took it upon ourselves to finish her face. A very cool holiday party, I’m the fleekish chick on Christmas day look if we don’t say so ourselves. And it’s all thanks to that gold glitter eyeshadow pigment gracing Nikia’s eyes. READ MORE

We’re suckers for one classic Christmas beauty cliche–the red lip. Though we’re big on trying new things (like we talked about for this beautiful fall makeup look) there is something about the holidays and impending new year that scream red lips. Maybe it’s the excitement, the red everywhere or the mistletoe kisses, but a beautiful red lip always ups the holiday fancy this time of year. Add to that black, glittery, smokey eyes and we’re done.

We often associate brown and orange with fall, but I think that we can never really see the true beauty behind such great colors when we limit them to only the latter part of the year. Granted, this brown, smokey eye look that Amena is wearing was definitely inspired by fall and now soon to be winter in all its glory, but this look would work year round. I played her beautiful eyes up with a very sultry brown shadow and created a vibrant coral-orange glow on her cheeks. The thought of brown and orange together may seem all too “That 70s Show”, but I assure you, this combination is far from dated. READ MORE

We really like these little clothes for a few reasons as well - you can stick them anywhere since they are wrapped individually and they can be used as a supplement to your skin care regimen.

Orange lipstick is universally flattering and looks good on year round. It especially looks great in the fall when mother natures’s warmly hued canvas provides a beautiful backdrop for your orange lipstick. While some women are packing away their orange lipsticks, we’re digging ours out. Orange is absolutely appropriate for the fall and anytime of the year for that matter but looks exceptionally pretty during the fall and winter because orange warms your face and gives you a glow-one that will really come in handy when mother nature’s backdrop goes from golden to snow white. Pairing orange lipstick with a swipe of warm blush in a brownish pink and a coat of mascara is all you need really to pull off the best orange lipstick for your skin tone and look amazing. READ MORE
