Be Mine... Kissable Lip Routine

I thought this was a kind of unique post, but also a great way to kick off Beach Babe's Be Maine Valentine's Day Series! I mean, you can't have a Valentines Day without soft kissable lips! Even if you don't have a Valentine this year, you don't want to be caught by surprise! ;)

First thing i do (and the very first thing you all should do!) is start out by exfoliating your lips! Before I use a Lip Scrub, I run warm water over a washcloth, wring it out, and rub my lips with this. Next I take a lip scrub (if you would like to know what I use check out this link here, but any kind you prefer will work). I use the washcloth on my lips first so that they will be more open to absorb the benefits of the Scrub. Lastly, I apply some of the lip scrub to a clean toothbrush and use this on my lips. Grab the washcloth once again and wipe the scrub and crystals away! :)

The next thing you should do in your kissable lips routine, is apply a lip balm. My favorites are the eos Summer Fruit, the Maybelline Baby Lips in Quenched, or the Bert's Bees Mango butter chapstick.

Next, the lip color. I think the best option (especially on a day you might get kissed!) is a Lipstain. I like the Covergirl Outlast Lipstain personally. After you have applied that you could apply a lipstick or a lipgloss on top, but I don't really like that idea. If you do end up getting kissed you don't want to end up with that sticky stuff all over his (and your) face! If you insist on some type of top coat, I suggest a tinted lip balm similar to the Baby Lips. I like the Peach Kiss on top because of the flavor, but another great option is to go back to the basics and try one of the many flavors of Lip Smackers!

Now to make your lips look larger, without a lip plumper... because those hurt. First you need a brown eyeliner. We are going to make a small line with this at the edge of your bottom lip, don't forget to blend it out! This gives the illusion of a shadow with makes your bottom lip look huge! The next step is to find a shimmery white eyeshadow. We are going to apply this first to your cupids bow, to enlarge your upper lip, to match you bottom. And then to the center of your upper and bottom lip, wich gives a reverse ombre effect. The white eyeshadow reflects light and... I think you get the idea :)

I hope this works as well for you as it does for me, and who knows? Maybe your significant other will show you just how much they appreciate it ;)

College Countdown: Dorm Tour

I think I finally got my side of my dorm to look how I want it to this year, and I am absolutely thrilled with it!

I chose the colors yellow and grey, which isn't what I'd usually pick, but I've been thrilled with the way it turned out!  I'm not going to mention where every little thing is from, if you want more information on that you can check out my Dorm HaulI posted earlier this week, but I will do my best to hit he highlights!
First I will start off with my desk area.  From right to left I keep my makeup in the drawers I DIYed, my makeup mirror from Amazon, my desk organizer filled with legitimate desk things, as well as more makeup and makeup brushes, my tea station with my chip mug and honey, my textbooks, and finally my sticky notes and Ray Bans!
The wall above my desk I turned into sort of a gallery wall!  It has been a process to get all of this up, because anything even semi heavy continues to fall down!  From top to bottom: I picked up the canvases at a bi…

Country Concert Lookbook

Early this fall I will be going to a Brad Paisley AND an Avett Brothers concert!  So when I found out King Ranch Saddle Shop was looking for inspiration when it comes to country style I had to share my ideas!  It is the dog days of summer, with hot days and cool nights here in the mountains, so I tried to create looks to fit all weather and styles!

Sassy  For the budding flower child who needs to show a bit of a wilder side and have fun for the night!   This is a crop top and basic jean shorts, which could be subbed for light wash ripped skinnies if the venue is going to be cooler (which is actually what I wore to a Flogging Molly concert last fall!). Crop Top: American Eagle Shorts: Hollister Flower Crown: Claire's


Sweet  This is for the sweet girly girl who still want to show their country side.  It is a simple white lace top dress, to which I have added a red flannel for those cool Summer nights.  The flannel could be tied around your waist during the day, or substituted for a d…
