I Dare You!

This post is a little different than anything that has ever shown up on the blog here but I’m confident we are all adults, so let’s have a little fun!

I dare you to #GoCommando. WAIT, what? I just said that. It’s about to be spring & one of my favorite things about spring is WHITE denim.

I know I am not the only one who has constantly heard of celebrities going commando on a daily basis. We are talking reward shows and everything. To me, that is insane. It’s just not something I had ever really thought of. However, Cottonelle is changing all of that.

Enter:

Cottonelle Clean Care toilet paper with Clean Ripple technology + Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Cleansing Cloths.

The Cottonelle® Fresh Care Flushable Cleansing Cloths feature SafeFlush Technology, so they not only offer you a confident clean but also start to break down immediately after flushing. They also pair well with the toilet paper for the ultimate in clean.

We all use the restroom y’all, so let’s make it as clean as possible. I’m thankful that Cottonelle is stepping up and giving us all the confidence to #GoCommando. So, you have been dared.

All About Lipstick

Y’all I am TRYING to be into lipstick these days. I’m totally sure if it’s going to happen but here’s some great information if you’re like me and are totally scared…

Looking for the perfect lipstick?

If you are looking for the perfect lipstick that matches your skin tone, we have the best tips for you.

Before we move on, it is important to note that there are millions of different shades on the store shelves and no matter what, you should settle only when you find the perfect shade/s.

Lip shape

We all know our lip shapes, but we can use it to our advantage. Did you know that brighter colors make your lips appear bigger while darker colors make them look smaller? Wearing them, we have noticed it, but the pattern was unknown to many. So, depending on your desire to minimize or accentuate your lip shape, you should choose a category.

 Suit the occasion

For some occasions, you need brighter colors, but sometimes you can be happy with the darker ones. Remember, you cannot be faithful to just one shade all your life. For example, during the day, you might choose baby pink shade to match your cool, college outfit. However, for night outs, you might think of hot pink. This is just an example.

Bottomline: Choose a shade that goes well with the occasion.

Undertones matter

Choosing the right shade is difficult if you do not know your skin’s undertones. The easiest trick to determine whether your undertone is cool or warm is to look at your inner wrists in the light. Focus on the color of your veins. If they appear greenish, you are warm. If they appear bluish, you’re cool.

However, if this sounds confusing, take an expert’s advice and let them guide you.

 Skin type

Depending on your undertones and skin type, you should choose a shade.

Fair skin: if your undertone is warm; pale pinks and nude peach will look good on your lips. If your undertone is cool; soft mocha color will help you look gorgeous.

Here, nude shades will brighten up a fair complexion. So, if you are getting ready for one of the best events of your life, avoid rocking a dark lip. Nude shades should be on your mind. If you want to buy it, buy it online at Nordstrom. Nordstrom is popular for the variety it offers. So, you can be sure that you will find your shade and look gorgeous at the event. Nordstrom even offers discounts on makeup products. Check it out!

Medium skin: Pink and cranberry colors will look good on you if you have cool undertones. For warm undertones, try bronze and copper colors. However, you have too many options to choose from. Peaches, fuchsias, red, and browns are your options.

Darker skin: Again, bronze and copper shades will be good for you if you have warm undertones. For cooler undertones, try wine-colored and ruby hues.

Looking for discounts on your purchased shades? Keep 10%-15% Nordstrom coupons handy. Coupons are life-savers. However, to make the most of discounts via coupons, you should target matching coupons.

Discounts + Matching coupons = Best Deals.

Concluding, hope this post helps you find the perfect shade/s that can make you look even better.

GOOD LUCK! I know I need it!
