We are 41 days into summer and I am having an awesome time so far. I am playing lots of tennis and with my serves and ground strokes on point, I couldn’t be happier.  I have been going on daily nature walks, appreciating the picturesque landscapes, breathing fresh, crisp, clean air and thinking “Life is so good!”  So, how is your summer going?  Let me know what you have been up to.

Ok….Let’s take a look at some “Lips that Says….Ooh, Ahh, Nice!” featuring MAC’s Lipsticks in Taupe, Twig and ‘O’.  These are some of the nude lipsticks I have been wearing, however, I will be transitioning to some vibrant colours just for the fun of it.

For fantastic results when applying your lipstick, here are some great tips:

  1. Your lips will love you for priming them first!  Priming moisturizes your lips and gives your product colour, vibrancy and longevity.
  2. Always sharpen your lip liner to achieve well defined lines, and also for sanitary purposes.
  3. When lining your lips, use quick effortless strokes.
  4. Use a lip brush to apply your lipstick, it will give you a polished finish.

My 2 Nude Summer Delight

Hello Again Beautiful People!
We have two days until the official start of summer and I think it is going to be hot, hot and sizzling! So, during the muggy, sticky days of summer, when I want to look natural, fresh, light and radiant, I am going to reach for two lipsticks I recently purchased from the MAC store, Sherway Gardens Mall, in Toronto, named Taupe and Twig. The lipsticks are priced CAD $19.

I am a NW 45 (MAC ref.) and both lipsticks compliment my skin tone very well, they give me that perfect nude look I desire. Taupe is a matte lipstick and I love lipsticks with a matte finish! Taupe is super creamy with a flushed brown colour, this is perfect for everyday wear. Twig is a satin finish lipstick, which means it does not have an intense glossy finish but strikes a perfect balance of smooth and shine. Twig is a lovely soft, gentle brownish-pink colour, I am certain you will adore this lipstick. I always use MAC Prep + Prime Lip before applying my lipstick for added lip moisture, smoothness and for the longevity it provides.
I will post pictures of me wearing Taupe and Twig lipsticks shortly, until then, have a fantastic summer and stay stunning, Beautiful People!  Thank you kindly for your continued support for the blog, it means so much.
