Beauty Tues: Plummy Fall Lip Color


Hello, fabulouses, and welcome to Beauty Tues.

This chilly weather in Northeast Tennessee has me in the fall (and almost Christmas *wink*) spirit! So, for this week’s Beauty Tues, I am going to show off my favorite lip color for fall! Alright, ladies, grab a pen and paper because you might want to take notes *wink*

Plum lips are a fall classic, and I love finding a new shade every season; however, there is one plum hue that seems to win my heart every single year–Lancome’s Hibiscus Pink. The color has a plumy-pink appearance that is perfect for fall, and it makes a great night-out essential year-round. This lip color saves me money, time and stress–it’s a win-win-win. *wink*

Now, without further ado, check out the VIP Beauty Board below + shop my favorite fall lipstick at Net-A-Porter!

Beauty Tues: Step Up Your Basic Eye Sans Stress With This One Product


Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to Beauty Tues.

This week on VIP, we are celebrating “the basics”–from how to achieve a simple eye look in a snap to how to jazz-up jeans and a white t-shirt. 

Ah–there is nothing better than an easy, daily make up routine that doesn’t fade away over the day…BUT finding the perfect look and products is tricky. So, to help you to NOT pull out your beautiful locks stressing over a basic beauty routine, I am going to share with y’all my new secret weapon*wink* It doesn’t require a brush or special primer, and you do NOT have to be a makeup maven to use it! SAY WHAT?! *wink*

I am so in love with Trish McEvoy’s 24-Hour Eye Shadow and Liner! I couldn’t believe that in less than 5 minutes, I was able to step-up my everyday eye look with ease. Rather than worrying with fancy liquid liners and metallic powders that require water and special brushes, this simple roll-up stick is an awesome fit for my busy schedule and lacking makeup application skills *wink*

Take a look at the before and after photos below to see JUST HOW AMAZING this Trish McEvoy 24-Hour Eye Shadow and Liner in Topaz is!

VIP Beauty Tip:

When using this product (or a similar product) apply your top-lid eyeliner as normal, THEN apply the eyeshadow stick above it. Although this may sound like overkill *wink*, the black liner anchors and outlines while the metallic eye shadow stick lifts and highlights.

Beauty Tues: Beauty Journal Entry 4, Beach/Pool Ready Nautical Chic


Hello, fabulouses, and welcome to Beauty Tues.

From getting my body and beauty bag beach/pool ready to dressing totally nautical chic–I am on a HUGE SUMMER kick this week *wink*

So, for this week’s VIP Beauty Tues, I printed out some beachy items to tape in my VIP Beauty Journal. Who needs a Pinterest board when I can have fun cutting and taping *wink* If I had beach-themed or nautical-themed washi tape…I would have gussied up Entry 4 a little more, but I used clear glitter polish instead *wink*


Take a look at the VIP Beauty Journal entry below + be sure to share your Beach/Pool Ready Nautical Chic Beauty Journal entry with the VIP Team by using #VIPBeautyJournal on Twitter and Instagram and by tagging Vintage Inspired Passionista Blog on Facebook! You might get featured on the blog–how cool would that be?! *gasp*

Beauty Tues: Quick n’ Easy At-Home Mani/Pedi Tools for the Busybody


Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to Beauty Tues.

If your days are anything like mine, they all seem to run together…which leaves a small window of time for pampering *sad face* So, with what little free time I had this weekend, I visited my local Sally’s Beauty Supply and picked up some quick, at-home mani/pedi tools. Doing my mani/pedis at home will not only save me time, but it is also more sanitary–yes, I am one of those clean-freaks who is very peculiar about where she gets her nails done *wink* I have a list of great places in my hometown and Birmingham, but I have not had time to find one here in my new city of Johnson City. If anyone has any suggestions, drop me an email *wink*

Note: Be sure to come back next week for a post about other nail and hand care products because VIP Beauty Tues November is all about NAILS! :)
