Lip to Love: MUFE Artist Rouge Lipsticks

I was feeling adventurous and edgy when I saw this midnight blue lip while doing my usual stroll through Sephora, but after actually trying it on and loving the luxe satin finish, I had to go see what the rest of the shades were looking like! C-603 (Midnight Blue) M-101 (Caramel Beige) M-501 (Plum Violet) These lipsticks by Make Up For Ever are newly formulated to include 25% more pigment than their previous formula. That’s major!

Lip to Love

Like everyone else, I’m obsessed with vampy lips this time of year and today I’m showing you a combo I wear faithfully: MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lip in Uniformly Fabulous and Smashbox Always on Liquid Lipstick in Miss Conduct.

The Lord has been dealing with me in so many areas of my life, that truthfully, makeup and beauty just didn’t feel significant enough to spend time on.  I’ve come to that complex place of knowing that Grace Love…

NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint

I’m on a quest to master flawless skin, so I’ve become a bit of a foundation hoarder! My favorites are usually those with the lightest coverage, and that leave me looking as if I’m wearing nothing at all.
