1st Blog Giveaway Winners

2 Jul

And the WINNER for my blog giveaway is (drum roll) SOFIA PEREZ. 🙂 Congratulations, Sofia. I will send you an email about the things I need to ship the items. 🙂 Since Sofia isn’t a blogger, Darleen Atienza is going to get the Shu Uemura falsies. You may wonder why she got the falsies even if she didn’t placed her Twitter, Bloglovin’, and Email details but she sent an email to me about them. 🙂

Ombré

30 Jun

Hey tastemakers, this one’s for you! Ombré, with its gorgeous slow fade from dark to light, has found its way from fashion to hair color and ended up smack on your lips! It’s not just a trendy look though, it’s actually a really pretty effect that highlights your top lip, bringing all of the attention there. And there’s something a little effortless and less “done up” about not having your bottom lip as dark as your top lip. Anyway, I just wanted to share the easiest way to re-create it yourself.

  1. Paint your top lip with any lip color.
  2. Smack your lips together to press the lip creme unto the top half of the bottom lip.
  3. Smear the bottom edge with a Q-tip.
  4. Paint the top lip again so it’s one shade darker.

That’s it! You can finish it with a coat of clear gloss if you love the look of a shiny lip.

Oh My DIY: Lip Smoothie

21 Jun

Dry + cracked lips ruin how lipstick looks. And because of recycled air, flying, dehydration and just life, unfortunately all of us are victims! So I’m sharing exactly what I have my clients do before I apply their makeup. All you need is a disposable mascara wand (or toothbrush if you don’t have one), lip balm and a tissue.

1. Dip the wand into the balm to pick up a decent amount onto the bristles then apply it directly on your lips (Just like in the image, I started with my bottom lip).
2. Scrub back and forth, up and down and in small circular motions in the same fashion you would brush your teeth. Really work on the flaky areas until the loose skin gently breaks off.
3. Wrap a tissue around your finger and remove any flaky residue.

That’s it! If you want to stay on top of it and keep your lips polished and crack-free all year round, every time you brush your teeth, before you’re done, brush your lips with your toothbrush as well.

PLEASE DON’T FORGET TO JOIN MY GIVEAWAY, INTERNATIONAL READERS ARE WELCOME BUT YOU NEED TO SHOULDER THE SHIPPING FEE (IT’S STILL WORTH IT TO JOIN THOUGH). THANK YOU! https://ohthoseredstilettos.wordpress.com/2012/06/14/1st-blog-giveaway/

I know that some of you are wondering why this blog has been so quite for the past few days. School is coming, and I need to prepare for it. Don’t expect too much for the next months because I might not have time to make the blog posts. Don’t worry, I will still find time to continue making different recipes. 🙂 Oh, and the giveaway? The sponsor for the giveaway isn’t responding to my messages, I’ll look for another person who could sponsor my giveaway so that one (or maybe 2) reader/s would win some goodies!
