May The Inward and Outward Woman Be As One

Dont let the holidays be sexier than you! You DO have time to look good.

The holiday season is in full effect.  Shopping, shopping, shopping,  holiday events, parties,  cooking and lots of decorating. Don't get caught up in the “No time to look good," holiday chaos. The tree and the house shouldn't be the only things lit and beautiful!  

Believe it or not, THERE IS TIME and LOB is here to make sure you’re not caught under the mistletoe without luscious kissable lips and glisten in your eyes. 
Here are some simple hair and makeup ideas that will take you from sham to glam in no time. 

For a day look, RED LIPSTICK- red lipstick creates instant pizazz. It’s simple and a great day look for this time of year.  "If you wear a red lip color, you instantly signal 'glamour' -- even if you're wearing the simplest outfit," says beauty director, Cheryl Kramer. Throw on red lipstick, keep eyes neutral, curl lashes, and apply a light coat of mascara. 

  For a festive night look, keep the luscious red lips and add a smokey eye. On most occasions, when you wear red lipstick,  the eye should be kept neutral, but it's the holidays baby! Tis the season to be festive, bold, and a little more aggressive.  

Here's How:

1. Red lipstick: 

My blog on wearing the right red lip color will help you find the perfect shade. http://www.lifestyleofbeauty.com/2010/09/red-culture.html

2. Maximize your eyes:

Start by priming the eyes with a great eye primer. This will ensure that your smokey eye will still be there by your 5th drink.   (Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer is one of the best. $11.00 at Cosme-De)   Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion 5ml, Original                    

3) Now, it’s time to start working on that smokey eye.  So many people are afraid of this look fearing they will make themselves look like a panda bear, but it is a lot easier than they think. The right tools and products, make it quite simple. I recommend purchasing Too Faced Natural Eyes Kit. Amazon $36.00  http://amzn.to/2hTD9aO It has really easy-to-follow, step by step instructions, and all the colors and brushes you'll need.

4) After you complete the ultimate, sexy, smokey eye, curl your lashes. Gently pinch lashes at the roots and then move along the lash, making pulse-like squeezes as you go. Before applying mascara, use a lash primer. This is a must to really enhance the lashes. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Blinc $26.00 @ Buy.  com 

5) Use a mascara for both volume and length. I love Clinique high impact extreme volume mascara. $18.00 buy. com Clinique High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara 01 Extreme Black

There are a lot of quick hairstyles out there to choose from. A cute bun or a pony tail, a braid- etc.  Here is a video of one of my favorite looks for the busy girl! Check it out!
