Dark Brown Lipstick - 2 Ways

It’s fall (finally…)! With so many 80 degree days I thought this day would never arrive. I can finally start showing you some of my favorite fall makeup looks. First on the list, dark brown lipstick. I’m sure a dark brown is not the first color most people gravitate towards when picking a color for their perfect pout. But it’s seriously so easy to pull off, and beautiful on any skintone!! Take a look and let me know which look you like best!

Toddler Fall Capsule Wardrobe

I’m a huge fan of utilizing capsule wardrobes (see this post) . Since Desmond is only going to be able to wear these clothes this year, I waited for things to go on sale! The trick for any capsule wardrobe is to start by picking a color theme. When you know what colors you are looking for it makes shopping easier and less overwhelming.

August Top 5

Better late than never! Here are some of the things I was LOVING during the month of August.

BaByLissPro Nano Titanium Spring Curling Iron 1 1/4”

I legit bought this curling iron on accident. I thought I ordered the 1” and this came in the mail instead. I decided to just keep it anyway and I’m so glad I did. More than anything it creates volume in my short hair. My hair hasn’t held a curl well since having my son, but this curling iron has been a game changer for me. I highly recommend it if you have shoulder length hair!

Flamingo Women’s 5-Blade Razor

I’m pretty picky when it comes to my razors and this one is the bomb. Trust me, for $9 you won’t find a better one. The blade lasted me about 2 1/2 weeks, but for $8 refill packs of 3? I still think it’s a great deal. And the colors are so fun!

Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer Hot Air Brush

Chances are, you’ve probably seen your favorite online influencer raving about this blowdryer. I just want to go on the record and say I have had this hair dryer since February and I loved it looonnggg before anyone else started using it. Was I the first to discover this awesome product? I’ll let you be the judge…Seriously though, this styling tool is the bomb and you need it ASAP. Be warned, it’s LOUD. I usually run it on low to keep the noise and the heat at a minimum and it still dries my hair in half the time it used to take.

Tajin Seasoning

Ok, so this isn’t a beauty product, but it MUST be talked about. Holy deliciousness you guys. If you like lime, you’ll want to run to the store ASAP and snag this seasoning. Its seriously good on popcorn, eggs, meat, fruit, saltines, ice-cream….ok i’m getting carried away. It’s THAT GOOD.

Haircovery Thickening and Volumizing Holding Spray

I am not one that usually likes non-aerosol hairsprays but this one is GOOD guys. It’s not sticky, not crunchy, a little goes a long way and you can tell its full of “good stuff” not made up of mostly water like other brands. It really does make your hair feel thicker. Just look at this description.

This sophisticated formula contains ingredients such as SenePlex, SenePeptide, Capixyl, and vitamins that help improve the appearance and texture of hair. When used alongside other HairCovery products, hair will appear more volumized, shiny, and healthy.

Lips and Brunch

As a recent Independent Distributor of Lipsense, one of my biggest fears was no one would want to have a party. So, instead of waiting for someone to ask me if they could host, I threw a party myself. Let's be honest, I was just looking for an excuse to brunch. 

I invited a few of my favorite gals over and tried to make it a no-pressure situation. We've all been to those direct sale parties where the seller puts so much pressure on everyone to buy something and that ends up being the entire focus of the party. That is not what I wanted. Instead, I focused on the relationships, making each girl feel beautiful and special, and of course, the brunching. 

For the center piece, I used a fake eucalyptus garland. I added a few other type of leaves I had left over from other floral projects to make the center piece more full and colorful. 

The flowers are fake as well, but you could easily add a few fresh flowers!

My placemats were made from kraft wrapping paper from the Dollar Tree. I just measured them and scalloped the edges. 

I also found these great mirrors from the Dollar Tree. They stand up on their own which was perfect! Some of the girls who don't normally wear lipstick kept catching glimpses of themselves in these mirrors and would smile. I loved making them feel beautiful for a day!

My set up was pretty simple. I used a small decorative table and used a giant lip print from Hobby Lobby as my background. I made my own in stock sheet so that everyone could easily see what they could go home with that day, and compare and contrast colors. 

I gave my guests about 10 minutes to peruse my color selection and asked them to write down their top three after swatching the colors on their hand. 

Obviously, I had to set up my glitter background so the girls could have a fun photoshoot with their new colors!

Fun Tip - If your looking for cute glassware check out your local second hand store. I found these adorable champagne saucers for $.50 a piece!

Muffins, fruit, and a crockpot egg bake were on the menu with lots of Rosé.

So, if your an Independent Distributor who's nervous about having a party, throw a party yourself and get some practice! I gave all my gals a full discloser that I needed to practice and they were so receptive and willing to listen. And you know what? Almost every girl bought something, which I did not expect at all!
