How to Rock A Dark Lip For the Fall

MDC Quick Tips for Dark Lips

1. Exfoliate your lips for a smooth application. Dark lipstick is not so forgiving when it comes to chapped lips.
2. Pair substantial lips with fall textured clothing and colors.
3. Line your lips with a similar color first to prevent bleeding.
4. Apply the lipstick with a lip brush for clear and defined lines.
5. When wearing really dark lipstick, the rest of your makeup should be minimal.

Even it up:  “There are a lot of great lip exfoliators out there, like Fresh Sugar Lip Polish. If you feel like you have really flaky lips, I would try to gently exfoliate them, but if it doesn’t work the day you want to rock your dark lip, it’s okay: go with a glossy dark lip color. It will hide some of that flakiness.”

De-fuzz your top lip: “You should also make sure that there’s no hair on your upper lip. You have no idea what attention – and the wrong kind of attention – that dark shadow brings to your mouth. Also, if the lip color catches any of those little, tiny hairs? Forget it, the look is just not good. They look like levitating dots. So wrong.”

Start with good base-ics: “The best way to prepare your lips for wearing a dark color is to keep them in great shape, which means keeping them moisturized. A great lip balm is essential, but try to get one that’s not too glossy because if you use it as a base under the lip color, it’ll sheer the color out or cause it to slip past the lip line., Go for balms that are more matte, like Burt’s Bees Lip Balm. I use that a lot to prep the lip for dark color; the matte finish is perfect.”

Go for glowing skin:  “You also have to spend a minute to perfect your skin, which is something a lot of people tend to forget. If your dark lips are competing against blotchiness or redness on the chin or nose, it just doesn’t look as fresh.  Look for a good BB or CC cream (I used a lot of Stila CC Color Correcting Cream with SPF 20backstage) or tinted moisturizer that will help you achieve a glowing, even complexion. It will help the dark lip stand out as bolder, cleaner and with more impact.

A dark lip i think it looks good on any skin tone. If you got the right outfit and attitude you can rock it. That is my opinion, everyone is different. But since is fall coming up it’s time to bring back the dark colors:) If you have any questions leave a comment down below:)

Through the practices of yoga, we discover that concern for the happiness and well being of others, including animals, must be an essential part of our own quest for happiness and well being. The fork can be a powerful weapon of mass destruction or a tool to create peace on Earth.

Fitness really helped me in my life. I have really gotten into fitness cause of my ex boyfriend. He introduced me to a Crossfit a gym in La Feria,TX. Its off the high way of Kansas city road, La feria TX. Its a really great gym and its like a big family. They just started boot camp last month. So there more things to do at the gym not just crossfit. The Coach and owner of the gym Sandy Gutierrez has really helped me this past year. Being my coach, my friend, who has tough me about working out and eating healthy. Teaching me the movements that we do in crossfit. A lot of people think Crossfit is something different then going to a gym or working out with a trainer. Some people are scared to try it out but you will never know if you don’t like something unit you try it. I have been going to ValleyCore for about a year, yes i did stop going for like 6 months but i have gotten back into it again. Once school is over in Sept i will be working two a days mostly everyday. The gym starting Boot Camp at 5 am in Sept.

Yes we also do yoga at the gym. We love to try new poses and just try new things. See what we can push are body to do. Now your probably wondering what this post is about. Fitness can help so many people different ways. Yes it helps you lose weight, its healthy for everyone but it also helps stress and you get to meet new people. When i started at ValleyCore i was shy and mostly everyone knew each other. But everyone was so friendly and nice they welcomed me. I started seeing change in my body in just a month. I would try to workout twice a day. I started seeing my body getting stronger more toned too. And i loved what i was seeing. It would help me a lot from the stress i had going in my life. I got close with everyone there. I saw new people joining and some leaving. Everyone there would help each other out in any way they could. Sandy and Miguel ( which was the other coach that was there) Would really push us to get better and stronger. They always help us out, if we had any questions we could go to them. There are so many gyms out there and there all good and different too. I’m not talking bad about any gym, I’m just telling you where i work out and what i do to keep myself in shape. I do try to eat good when i can. Its hard but you get use to it and your body does feel better too.

Vamp It Up (which used to be my sign-off on my blog) is a very dark blackened purple. Looking for a goth type of purple? This is your friend. Gorgeous color but VERY dramatic on fair skin!

Rose-Bud is a medium warm pinky/brown color. This is a really pretty easy-to-wear color.

Ravin’ Raisin is a deep plum/brown color. It’s dark but not overly dark and easy to pull off.

Sugar Plum Fairy is a bright cool fuchsia pink. It looks much darker in the tube actually, I had no idea it was going to be this color. I love this one!

Spiked With Rum is a warm dark pink/brown this another one that I think is easy to wear and good for a lot of different skin tones.

Just Peachy is a very pale peach/pink. It actually looks a lot more mod from a distance than up close.

Bare It All is a medium/light warm nude

Cherry Bomb is a dark blood red. It’s a little patchy, but is really nice dark red.

Pink Sugar is a very light salmon nude pink.

Sand Storm is a warm medium orange/brown color.

Mauve Outta Here is a medium cool purple/pink.

Red Velvet is a bright cool cherry red.

Smokin’ Hot Pink is a warm medium bright pink. Great pink!

Mocha-licious is a dark warm mocha brown color.

Cinnamon Spice is a dark brick-red/brown color.

Stoplight Red is a bright cool true red.

In The Flesh is a medium warm pinky brown color.

Think Pink is a cool, pale whitened pink.

DIY Washi Tape Projects for back to school:)

7b3fc23fc9e6918a0b2c5243586a45d6

1. No more boring pencils! Tweens will love creating designer pencils by covering them with brightly coloured washi tape

2. The sky’s the limit for decorating school notebooks  and binders with washi tape. Tweens can get creative with fun patterns, colours and designs that will make doing schoolwork a little more bearable

3. Even the most mundane school supply looks better when covered with some brightly patterned washi tape. I want to make some of these fun binder clips for myself:

4. Does your tween have their own iPod, cell phone or other electronic device? Help them keep track of their charging cords by covering the ends with washi tape

5. Washi tape can be used to jazz up just about any school or office supply. It’s a great way for your kids to easily tell school supplies like their rulers, pens and folders apart from their friends’ similar items

6. Having a well stocked and organized spot to work on homework and school projects can help kids be much more productive. Create attractive storage containers by covering empty tin cans with washi tape to create an inexpensive homework centre

7. Tweens with their own laptops or desktop computers may be interested in brightening it up bycovering the keys on the keyboard with washi tape. Tip: Choose lighter colours of tape with less busy patterns to help see the letters through the tape.

8. These DIY washi tape magnets would be great for tweens to use in their school lockers, or for hanging important reminders up on the fridge at home. You can even cut up some old magnets you have around the house, if you don’t want to go out and buy the magnetic strips.

9. If your tween will have their own locker at school, they can make a variety of inexpensive locker decorations such as white boards, picture frames, and pen holders with items from the dollar store and some washi tape:

10. Speaking of lockers, because washi tape comes off so easily, it’s perfect to use for decorating the doors of school lockers. Check out how Jennifer from Rambling Renovators used washi tape as an easy-to-remove wallpaper on a school locker recently

I hope this helped anyone that’s going back to school. Have any questions leave a comment down below.
