Lip Inspiration

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to VIP Beauty Tues!

This week, we are going to chat about the VIP March Madness Selfie Series! What is that, you ask? Well, the VIP March Madness Selfie Series is a VIP Instagram and Twitter exclusive (so exclusive…I put it in italics *wink*) where I will post a new selfie each day featuring a different lip color. This fab series will begin Friday, March 7th. Feel free to join in on the fun and show me your lipstick of the day by hashtagging: #VIPMarchMadness & #VIPSelfieSeries Also, don’t forget to tag @VintagePassionista on your Instagram pictures and @AbbyHathorn on your twitter pictures.

 Now, I want to give y’all a little sneaky peeky of the lipstick brands that will be featured on the VIP March Madness Selfie Series–Chanel, Lancome, Guerlain, and more! Speaking of Guerlain…Did you know that Fiat and Guerlain partnered to create 250 limited edition Fiat 500/500Cs inspired by Guerlain’s La Petite Robe Noire perfume? OMG…I think I am in love. When purchasing  one of the limited edition Fiats, buyers will also get a Guerlain makeup kit, 100 mL of La Petite Robe Noire, 30 mL of Velvet Body Milk, black mascara, nail lacquer, and Teracotta 4 Seasons in Tint Nude powder. Oh, this is so perfect…I love Fiat and Guerlain! Could it get any better? I am pretty sure I have found my dream car; however, these limited edition Fiats have been designed exclusively for the French market *sad face* A girl can dream…right?

Now, let’s get down to the nitty gritty with some awesome lip tips from the fabulous makeup experts at Saks Fifth Avenue Birmingham! 

1.  Apply bold or dark lipsticks with a lip brush to help prevent the color from bleeding. No one likes lipstick bleeding…yuck.

2.  Nude lips are like pearls–they go with everything; however, finding a nude lipstick shade that flatters your skin color is key. If you are unsure which nude hues work for you, ask a makeup specialist :)

3.  There are so many different shades of lipstick out there, so why should we limit ourselves to just one or two? Hm…we shouldn’t! Branch out and buy that orange lipstick you have been fan girling over in the latest issue of InStyle! Tell yourself YOU CAN work that color–just imagine the office hallways as runways…you got this! *fist in the air*

Now, before y’all go, remember to stay tuned to the VIP Facebook page for updates on the VIP Flash Giveaways because y’all will not know when they are coming until they are randomly announced on the Facebook page!
