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

This lightweight formula won't cake, fade, or rub off. And it works great on dry, combination and oily skin and finishes silky and matte.

Fall and winter are perfect times of the year to have glowing skin. The problem most of us are faced with however is that the brutally cold weather and the beating our faces take from it normally lends to anything but glowing visages. But, the beauty of makeup is that we can glow even when it’s blistering outside. When done right, and with the right products, you too can pull off having a glowing face year round, even when there is a rainbow of fallen leaves or a blanket of snow on the ground. READ MORE

How to wear purple lipstick. That was the challenge we found ourselves struggling with. Purple lipstick is no doubt beautiful, edgy and sexy but it can be hard to pull off. Where do you even go wearing purple lipstick? And a beautiful purple lipstick for darker skin tones (in this case we specifically mean ethnic skin)? That’s even harder to find…or was, because we found it in OCC “Rollergirl” Matte Lip Tar. READ MORE

Here are a couple of things you may not have yet thought about pertaining to this week/end: Halloween falls on Friday, the start of the weekend (yes and yes some more) annnnd…you don’t have to go to anybody’s party or answer any door for little people begging for their next sugar high while looking like the scariest thing since Bride of Frankenstein.
