Glam it Up
Beauty – Bright Lips, get comfortable with at least one color of bright lipstick that you can wear out at night to a red carpet event.
Bright lipstick makes your teeth look whiter and your smile will show up so nicely in all the photos all night.
Laqa & Co. Lip Crayon ($12) with Bombshell Lip Gloss ($8)
The lip crayon will stay on all night, while the lip gloss will give it a soft shine so it doesn’t ever look worn or dry.
Hair – Spornette #111 (just $11) teasing brush is the best one I have ever used
Teasing your hair so it looks sexy and full not like a Texas Beauty Queen (no offense Texas). There are several different techniques to giving the hair volume without frizz or flyaways…just a little messy and natural. Always make sure the rats nest is hidden.
Fashion – Pointed Heels. My favorite that I have bought were purchased on Zappos (another dangerous obsession) by Truth and Dare…Madonna’s brand.
I had no idea she had a shoe line (of course who doesn’t), but it was reasonable ($98) and they are comfortable. They go with everything and they can look sophisticated or rocker sexy depending on the outfit and accessories. The perfect go-to heel for a stylish night out.
Lifestyle – Arrange transportation ahead of time.
I have been using Flywheel more these days instead of Uber. It is much less expensive and still has the ease of an app on your phone and no need to have cash on hand your card is automatically charged (tip included).
That’s What She Said… by Sequoia Leopold
“Never under any circumstances after the age of 23 are you ever allowed to take your heels off during or after an event. You must wait until you are in your form of transportation! No exceptions.”
of the Week – Tova Edwards, owner of Wink Lash Extensions
I have been getting my lashes done by Wink Lash Extensions for almost 2 years now, and I have not had a problem with my natural lashes at all. All of the technicians there are educated and detailed with each service. I make my appointments last minute so I see someone different every-time, but the service and outcome is consistent! www.winklashextensions.com
