In need of a quick beauty refresh? Our number one tip is to add in a bright, bold lip color! We’ve partnered with MUA Matt Gossett on a few Summer beauty looks that we can’t wait to recreate this season.

For both Caitlin’s and Lauren’s looks, Matt turned up the heat on the eyes for a more smoldering effect, and then added in a bold lip color to help transform the look from day to night. This look is for when you want a little extra glam, and a punchy pout will easily do the trick!

A bright, bold lip is a staple for Summer, so don’t be afraid to pick up a few hues to play around with during the season. Pay attention to the undertones (Warm or Cool), and if straight out of the tube is too bright for you, just use a tissue to blot it down for a softer (but still pretty) effect.

  • Liner: makeup by Mario perfect brown and super black
  • Mascara: Nars Climax
  • Concealers: Sephora Brand Gel Concealers
  • Foundation: Makeup Forever Foundation Stick
  • Setting powder for Summer heat: Hourglass Translucent Powder

Happy New Year!! It’s hard to believe that 2021 is finally (and thankfully!) here, and I don’t know about you guys, but this means out with the old, in with the new! I usually spend the first few days of the new year purging, and one place I really try to do this with is with my beauty and skincare products. It’s time to make room for the products that work, get rid of those that don’t, and also put some practices back into place that I may have slacked on last year.

If you’re in the same mindset as me and looking to do the same, here are some beauty resolutions for 2021 that should be easy for anyone to keep.

INVEST
In new sponges, wash clothes, makeup brushes, combs, and other tools that may be broken, worn out, etc. Bathrooms harbor germs, so go ahead and invest in those new, sterilized products that you’ve been needing to replace to really start the year off fresh.

BE CLEAR
With your skin. Don’t be afraid to try something new and invest in products that really WORK. That doesn’t meant that you have to break the bank-it just means taking the time out to develop a skincare routine that really works for YOUR skin. Having clear skin means you can minimize the amount of products that you have to use. so if you want to skip wearing makeup, you can without feeling self-conscious about your skin. Talk to a dermatologist, see an aesthetician, test a few products out (it normally takes 30 days to see a difference), whatever you need to do. Just be clear on what your skin needs and take care of it.

BE A CUT ABOVE
When’s the last time you got a haircut? If you’re not sure, it might be time for an update. Look at celebrities that have a similar face shape as you and consult with your hairstylist to see if you can pull it off. You’d be surprised at the difference a great cut can make. In the meantime of waiting to get a cut, also treat yourself to a hair mask.

HAVE BROW POWER
Please, please please, get your brows in order. Pluck them, grow them out, fill them in, do whatever you need to do to make them look good, but get them in order. Perfect brows fame your face and equal less makeup, so take some time to get them right. If you’re having flashbacks to the self-plucked thin brows of the 90s, then make an appt with a brow tech. It can cost as little as $12, but just double check to make sure they know how to do what you need.

NAIL IT
A fresh manicure and pedicure is a must! Your hands can tell the story of your life, and you don’t want them to look dry and crusty, lol. If it’s not in your budget to go and get them done (or you don’t feel comfortable due to Covid), invest in a kit ($15-$20 should get you everything you need to do the basics) so that you can do them at home. It doesn’t take a lot to make them look better, and you will feel amazing afterwards.

LEARN THE DIFFERENCE
When it comes to makeup, there are levels. There is makeup for day, night, photo, video, events, work, etc. and for most people, you want to know the difference. Unless you’re a reality star and a camera crew is following you, you honestly don’t have to have all of that on, and even then, you want to make sure that the products you’re using are right for your skin. There are tons of tutorials on YouTube to view, and you can talk to the MUAs on staff at Sephora if you’re unsure of where to start.

EXPERIMENT
Let this be the year that you try something new. A bold lip, sparkly shadow, a new perfume, whatever piques your interest. Experimenting every few months may help you discover a new essential for your beauty bag and keep you out of a rut.

HAVE FUN & ENJOY
You are fabulous, so own it every day!
