Oily Skin No More!

If a greasy guise is your demise then you should be making your own oil absorbing blotting papers! These are a useful beauty product that can keep you looking polished and shine free all day long by removing excess oil from your face. Women can use these without ruining or removing their makeup. A few sheets of rice paper (for a less natural option you can use gift wrapping tissue paper) and a pair of scissors. Trace the interior of the case and cut the paper to fit. For those of you that require a bit more oil control you can sprinkle corn powder between the sheets; this is the only time a lackluster look is not a problem.

Highlight Those Cheeks Young Lady!

Don’t mistake bad oily shine for a great highlighter. Go for a beautiful shimmer on the features that look amazing highlighted in pictures; like your cheekbones, temples, and right under your brows or the center of your lips. Shimmer will define the structure of your face and accent some of the strongest features of the face.

Mastering a signature Holiday Bold Lip

The holidays call for bright and bold lips that scream, “I’m ready to celebrate!” To master this look, first apply lip plump from Benefit Cosmetics. Then, apply a lip liner outside the natural lip line to accentuate the natural curves of your lip. Lip color is essential for your selfie swag! Choose a highly pigmented color. It will hide any imperfections on or around the lips by drawing attention to the color. Choose one of the hottest holiday reds like Diorific Lipstick in Passion Shock or be ahead of the trend with the hot color for spring like Heroin by MAC. You can use a high gloss shimmer (NARS or MAC) on the center of the lips to create an effortless pout.”


Touch ups are crucial

Do a quick 10 second touch up if necessary. If you find your skin oily right before your photo, a ready to apply travel translucent powder is a great a quick fix.

Practice Makes PERFECT

“Speaking” of lips, save some time and practice your best selfie kiss-face pucker BEFORE you take any photos! Choose your “best” filter and save it as a favorite! We all have one that we look “likable” in. One that really works with your coloring and skin tone.
