Fave Neutral Liquid Lipsticks from Stila

I keep telling myself that I'm not allowed to get any more liquid lipsticks, yet here I am with too many to fit in my lipstick drawer.

A sizable chunk of my collection is Stila's Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks.  They have a great range of shades, as far as liquid lipsticks go they feel pretty comfortable, and they're very accessible - Stila is available at Sephora, Ulta, online, and even certain drugstores.

Velour Lashes - Review and Look

It seems like almost every Instagram eye makeup tutorial includes a set of false lashes these days.  I'm not complaining - it really rounds out the look.

Beauty Battle Station Must-Haves

"This isn't a bra, this is body armor.  This isn't makeup, this is war paint!" - Iliza Schlesinger


When I'm getting glam for the day, I step up to my battle station and make a game plan.  Okay, maybe you don't call it a "battle station", maybe you call it "a vanity".....same, same.

I absolutely LOVE this choice - Misty Copeland is such a force in the dance world, and I think that her story, and her beautiful & graceful talent pairs well with what Modern Muse represents.

Lip Swatch Saturday - Maybelline 'Nude Embrace'

Remember when nude, mannequin-like concealer-lips were all the rage?

I do, because it was the first lip trend that I hopped on.  I went out and raided the Maybelline nude lipstick collection display at my local Walmart.  Some of the shades that I bought back then don't really work on me anymore, but I think that 'Nude Embrace' still does.
