BOLD SUMMER LIPS WITH STUDIO C COSMETICS

BOLD SUMMER LIPS WITH STUDIO C COSMETICS

A bold lip is the perfect complement to glowy Summer skin that features minimal makeup. Showcasing your sexy lips is the easiest way to achieve a fun, pulled together look without all the fuss.



This Summer, I’ve partnered with makeup artist and creator of Studio C Cosmetics, Cynthia Dunyoh, to offer three bold shades of lipsticks from her collection on my Couture Diva site.

I’ve been wearing the Orchid Lipstick in a matte finish on repeat recently. I love how smooth it glides onto my lips, and the rich color lasts all day! Studio C Cosmetics is locally and minority owned, and 100% cruelty free.

I’m including a few tips to help you pull this trend off with perfection:

1. PREP & MOISTURIZE
Bright lip colors highlight every flake and crack on your lips so be sure to apply a rich, moisturizing balm first. Exfoliate your lips the night before, and hydrate, as needed. When using a matte finish lipstick, be sure to remove any excess balm.

2. STAY INSIDE THE LINES
A great way to prevent bleeding is by filling the lip with a lip liner that matches your lipstick shade. The dry texture acts as a magnet to keep color in place.

3. KEEP IT FRESH FACED FAB
Keep your face as natural as possible. Use concealer, or a tinted moisturizer as needed, and top with highlighter and mascara. It’s that simple to nail the look!

CLEAR SKIN BEAUTY REGIMEN

CLEAR SKIN BEAUTY REGIMEN


I recently did a photoshoot for a hair company website launch and was pleasantly taken aback when the makeup artist exclaimed how flawless my skin was! A year ago, my skin was telling a very different story. I was a thirty something year old woman still struggling with acne. I would suffer from breakouts every couple of weeks. Certain areas of my face had dry spots, and it was too oily in others. I just wasn’t loving the skin I was in. Not sure that I wanted to go the prescription route, I pushed back those misgivings and headed to my dermatologist anyway, who quickly prescribed a cream I was to use every other day. It didn’t work. On the contrary, it intensified my acne problem!

That’s when I decided to get back to basics. I didn’t really have a skin care regimen outside of cleansing and moisturizing. But what I realized then is that my skin was screaming to me that it needed some more TLC. I chose SheaMoisture products for two reasons: I trust the brand, and I know its ingredients are specially formulated for my skin type.

The New Regimen
Cleanse/Exfoliate – I use the Bamboo Charcoal Detoxifying Foaming Facial Wash twice daily to cleanse. The Clarifying Facial Wash & Scrub, I use it up to two times per week to gently slough off any dead skin cells.

Tone – The Problem Skin Toner works well after cleansing to remove any makeup and impurities that the cleanser may have missed. It also helps to give me an even, blemish free skin tone.

Moisturize – I love the smell and texture of the Bamboo Charcoal Gelee Moisturizer. It’s lightweight and feels great on my face.

Special Treatments – I like to treat myself to masks every week or so, and the Clarifying Mud Mask is perfect for that luxurious spa feel.

It didn’t take long for my skin to start feeling softer, but it was about another two weeks before I could see the noticeable differences. I’ve been using SheaMoisture skin care products consistently for a year now and I’m in love with the results!
