Ke$ha and the Blues

This past monday Ke$ha was spotten at the Casio “Shock the World” event in NYC. Perhaps she was trying to match with her Baby G blue watch. She is Casio’s latest spokesmodel after all.

I’m a fan of color but, Ke$ha looks kind of zombieIsh with that blue lipstick. Maybe a darker hue of blue and some clear gloss over it would have given it a more wearable look. What do you guys think?

Lady Gaga Lip Gloss Out Next Week

***CORRECTION- The Lip Gloss will be in stores on September 2nd. ***

Mark your calendars because on August 9th fabulosity will be arriving in the shade of pink. Earlier this year, MAC Cosmetics released a beautiful shade of pink lipstick named Gaga after the one and only Lady Gaga. The limited edition lipstick is part of the VIVA GLAM collection.

Only a week from today MAC will once again release a limited edition of a new gloss after Gaga. You’ll be able to get the Viva Glam Lipglass in Nordstrom and all other locations starting in September. Not only will your lips look fab, you’ll be helping out a great cause. Proceeds from the lip gloss will go to the M-A-C AIDS Fund.

Primer for Eyes and Lips

I recently posted on The Importance of Primer. Primer is essential in making your makeup look its best. The better the base for your makeup, the easier it will be to apply, the better it will look and the longer it will last. Other than the face, you can also apply separate primer for the eyes and lips.

For eyes, try Bare EscentualsĀ bareVitaminsĀ Prime Time Eyelid Primer ($16). It’s a gentle, fragrance-free formula that really makes your eye makeup stay put. It’s sheer so it won’t interfere with any color you choose to apply. Also great for sensitive skin; it’s been allergy tested by dermatologists and made without Parabens, sulfates and synthetic dyes and fragrances.

Tip* Vaseline can be an alternative for primer. Apply it slightly on your eyelids to keep makeup in place. Just don’t use as a face primer or you’ll have the shiniest face.

Wearing lipstick needs to be done with confidence and it doesn’t hurt to use primer. DuWop’sĀ Prime VENOM ($20) works as a smooth base for lipstick and moisturizes as well. This primer is a 2-in-one product working as a plumper as well.

Don’t want to splurge on primer, E.L.F. has got you covered. They’re Eye Primer/Liner Sealer is only $3 and they’re Lip Primer/Plumper is $3 as well.
