Matte Is Where Its At

When on the hunt for the perfect new lip color, we often times gravitate to the colors that have a glossy or satin finish. It's about time we step out of the box and try something new. Matte lipsticks are really leading the pack with the boldest, brightest colors for the season, not to mention the staying power they posses so no need for frequent touch-ups! So if your looking for the perfect accessory to complete your fab look...grab an intense matte. Be sure to gently exfoliate your lips with a bit of sugar & honey and smooth on some lip balm, blot with tissue then add lip color.

Here are a few hot matte colors to choose from:
Ruby Woo by MAC Cosmetics
Bright Pink Matte by Sephora

Volga By Nars

Nude Attitude by REVLON

Ask Tia Tuesday

This week's question is from Lisa B. Lisa asks:

I travel for work and play, and I sometimes find crumbled eyeshadows, blushes, or pressed powder in my makeup bag when I arrive at my destination after a flight. How do you keep this from happening? Is there a certain way I should pack products for travel?

Hi, Lisa! So happy you asked, as this was once a challenge for me as I have to carry around lots of makeup for work. If you are carrying on your makeup, make sure your makeup bag has a little padding/cushion in it to prevent mishaps. Another option would be to place cotton balls inside your eyeshadows etc., which I'm certain will maintain makeup. Also, try not to overload your makeup bags, downsize to exactly what you will need while away. Hope this helps and thanks for asking!
If you have a makeup question that you'd like me to answer, send it to It just might be chosen for an upcoming post.
