Beauty Tips

Happy Friday Everyone!!

We're sure that you all are taking advantage of the unseasonably warm weather happening right now! (And getting RED-dy for Cincy Chic's A Lady in Red event tonight!!!)

Since this week's theme seems to be fun makeup tips, we thought we would share some insight from a new friend to the blog, Christine!


Makeup shouldn’t be stressful or overwhelming!  But sometimes I feel like its information overload with all the tips, tricks, tools, trends, etc… A lot of it can be very useful but difficult to remember. Makeup should be fun and used to highlight our natural beauty!  Here are some simple and gorgeous tips that anyone can do! 

  1. Makeup looks best on a clean and prepped ‘palette.’ Cleanse, tone, moisturize, protect and use a primer.
  2. ‘Frame’ your face with perfectly shaped eyebrows.
  3. Create the illusion of well rested eyes with a highlight in the corner of your eyes.
  4. Use the tip of your mascara to really separate and define your lashes!
  5. Create a softer smoky eye with jewel tones- plum, navy or even emerald!
  6. Make your cheekbones stand out with a highlighter just above your natural cheekbone.
  7. Get lip color to last and stay put by applying a small amount of foundation on your lips before applying lipcolor.
  8. Try a bold lip color to freshen up your makeup- pink, tangerine, fuchsia, plum!
