Dewy, radiant, youthful – it’s what we all strive for with makeup. To look enhanced and never overdone. The key to achieving this, IMO, is the right blend of cream and powder highlighters! You want the light to reflect in just the right places. The shades to contour those cheekbones. And a flash of flushed color to give the glow of pubescent days.

“There’s power in red lipstick.” We’ve all heard this phrase, but what does it really mean and what kind of power can a red lipstick really emit? If you refer to Psychology Today, they’ll tell you that women wearing the color red have been found in studies to appear more attractive to men subconsciously. That when compared an image of a woman in red and the same woman in blue, the male test participants said they were more likely to want to date the woman in red and spend more money on the woman in red.
