Beauty Tip #1 – Go Bold or Go Home
As an independent woman, this is the time to be sassy, spontaneous and discover new joys in life. In the world of beauty, nothing says WOW like a bold red lip. Go for it! When deciding on which shade of red to go for remember: pick a shade of red opposite of your skin tone to make the color POP. If you have a warm complexion like me (olive skin tone) select a lipstick with a cool or blue undertone. If you have a cool or pinkish skin tone choose a shade with a warm or orange undertone. Bonus Tip: Using a blush brush, blend a tiny amount of lipstick overtop your foundation into the apples of your cheek to brighten your complexion.

Beauty Tip #2 – Maximize Lashes
Bat those eyes girl! Special occasions call for extra long, volumized lashes. For an instant eye-lift add 2-3 applications of mascara of your choice, allowing each coat to dry in between!
Beauty Tip #3 – Wing It
A winged liner is elegant and classic: two qualities I admire most about the gals in my life. For the most precise winged line, I recommend using a liquid eyeliner with a fine tip. Follow the natural line of your eye and extend the liner diagonally from the corner of your eye to the halfway point between your eye and eyebrow. Et Viola!
Beauty Tip #4 – Don’t Overdo It
Classy girls are beautiful girls.On no occasion should any woman look like a clown. If you have to ask yourself if you have too much makeup on, you probably do.
When planning a makeup look – select one (1)
Option 1: Dramatic lip with neutral eyes
Option 2: Dramatic eyes with a neutral lip
Unless you are wearing stage makeup, no girl should ever combine options 1 & 2. Just don’t. For this look, I selected option 1. To create this look: I applied the lightest shade (top left) onto my tear duct with the medium shade (top right) on the lid with the bottom left shade in the crease.
