ombre-lip-color-trend.jpgAs a self-professed beauty junkie I really like checking out trends in makeup — during a recent read of Sephora’s The Glossy (their all-things-beauty blog) I stumbled upon a lipstick trend that captivated me. It seems that the ombré style has made its way to lips. With step-by-step tutorials on how to get the colors just right from makeup artist and Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics line founder, David Klasfeld, these lip looks are truly worth checking out. The question is, will you try them out, too?

While the Oscars provide envy inducing hair that you swear you’ll try for your next big event, the Kid’s Choice Awards tend to provide inspiration for the hair you want to try out immediately. Like the retro waves and side parts on the red carpet this season, things continued to be a bit off center over the weekend with some fun, young twists on the part. Celebrities like Katy Perry, Jessica Alba and Jessie star Debby Ryan showed us three gorgeous ways to wear a side part. 

1. Classically Cool - Katy Perry: Keep it simple and classic with hair sleek and neatly parted, leaving the ends perfectly polished. 

2. Full and Fun - Jessica Alba: Add some volume to the roots for a playful twist with a pumped up side part. 

3. Chic Side - Debby Ryan: A modern take on the side part, complete with beachy waves may be the glammest of them all. 

Ready, set…side part.

A little sparkle and a golden glow? We’re all for it! This pair gives you both in an instant.

Then end with a sweep of the illuminating champagne-toned highlighter for the perfect finishing touch.

An effortless and completely natural-looking tan can be yours — without the usual fuss and mess that accompanies at-home formulas. The Beautifully Bronzed kit contains a deluxe 16-ounce bottle of Faux Tan, which appears on the skin as it’s applied to help prevent those streaks that just scream “DIY tan gone wrong!” Even better, the included tan brush makes application a breeze. Just deposit color onto the brush and buff evenly onto skin. Voila: a goof-proof tan that looks even better than the real deal.

It delivers immaculate, true and lasting color and features a wonderfully soft, easy-to-blend texture that makes it a dream to apply. With four coordinating colors to work with, this could end up being your palette of the season.

5. bareMinerals Lip Quickie Collection: Modern Florals

What better way to complement that amazing tan than with a kiss of pretty color? The Lip Quickie Collection includes three striking hues that drench your pout with a creamy, semi-matte finish that lasts and lasts. The design features a pointed tip, which allows for expert precision every time you apply.

Standing in an impossibly long line at Sephora, you aimlessly pick up the strategically placed items that line the shelves. A red label with the words “cleansing spa water” catches your eye. It sounds fancy. You don’t believe it will really work though. Before you can question why anyone would pay $13 for a travel size container of water, you’ve added it to your purchase at check out. That night, after arguing with yourself on the couch over the fact that no matter how tired you are you still need to remove your makeup, you begrudgingly head to the bathroom and squeeze this ‘cleansing water’ onto a cotton pad. It immediately removes your mascara, your eyeliner, and your doubts. Your skin doesn’t feel oily or dry. You’re immediately hooked. You’re welcome.

I am a tad bit obsessed with technology, and also with nail polishes. And I spend a lot of time trying to find that “perfect” color, but I never thought technology would solve my problem, that is until China Glaze introduced an amazing new tool into the iOS App Store. Their newly released “China Glaze” app has a feature called Match a Colour that fires up your camera, you then take a pic of a shade you’re coveting, and it will analyze the color and texture to match you to any of their 300+ shades. One click of the camera and you can find the shade closest to your hot, new handbag or fave, statement pumps — my inner geek girl just nailed a perfect 10!

The app is totally free and available for download in the App Store.
