Even though my days are filled with diapers, Diego, and my own little Dennis the Menace, sometimes I just want to have a little fun, and I can (with my makeup). I decided to break out of the usual and express myself with these new Revlon shades that are totally out of the norm for me…because sometimes a gal just wants a little more color.
Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.

Red lipstick is considered one of the most glamorous items of makeup a woman can possess. I never wear red lipstick because it’s just gets so. much. attention. and i tend to want to blend in, but then I wondered, what is wrong with a little attention? I wore Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Certainly Red for an entire day and Revlon Colorburst Lip Gloss in FIRE for a full night (talk about red lips), and it’s one heck of an attention getter!
I kept hearing “Wow, you look great!” “Having a baby suits you!” “You are glowing!” from people who’ve seen me a zillion times since I had my baby four months ago, and never said a word about my glow before. I never wore red lipstick before (I usually wear beigey pink colors) but WoW! I’ll be breaking this Revlon red lipstick gloss out more often!

Beautiful, Colorful Smoky Eyes
“There are no ugly women, only lazy ones”

I tend to not wear eye makeup, but after playing around with Revlon ColorStay Eye Shadow palettes in Bombshell and Inspired I now regret it, because I love the look of smoky eyes. I feel smoky eyes during the day, if done with a light touch and minimally, is fabulous (and paired with neutral lips). Using color around the eyes is also lots of fun. I wear lipstick all the time, and I sometimes wear mascara, but I really was holding my potential back by not wearing a bit of eyeshadow.
Pair these smoky eyes and colorful eyeshadows with red lips, and you have a ROCKING glamorous evening look. (smoky eyes featured in makeup video tutorial)
Pretty Ice-Cream Colored Nails
“I love the confidence that makeup gives me.”

Pretty nails are just, well, pretty. I love painting my nails, but when the nails start to chip I’d remove the nail polish and not reapply (laziness). Meanwhile, I think a gorgeous manicure is one of those things that gives me more confidence than anything…I love handing over money, writing something down, pointing, all with beautifully polished nails. I feel that others notice this too and think better of people who maintain these details in their appearance. So why don’t I keep them polished all the time?
(i don’t have an answer to that)
I tried Revlon ColorStay Long Wearing Nail Enamel in Sorbet, a fun summer color, and they lasted longer with the Revlon ColorStay base coat and top coat. If I can devote an hour each Saturday afternoon to doing a simple polish change, it would make me feel fabulous all week, so this is one of those things we gals should definitely do for ourselves- and it’s more fun when the colors we use are colorful.
