Meli Monday - Red Lips and Quirky Tips

Hey lovely readers!

My girl, GiGi, requested more of Meli on this lil ole blog of mine...and she even suggested a great idea:

Meli Monday's! 

Sounds good.  I'll keep my Manic Monday posts, because they always are.  But, I am going to try and incorporate some of MOI on Mondays too. 

I have been loving all the simple make up and bright red lips I have been seeing out and about...all over!!!  I am hesitant to wear anything of color on my lips.  I am a nude gal, afterall.  But, I adore the look.

So, I decided to step out of my comfort zone over the weekend and embrace the red lips. 

Inspiration:




And while I am confident my red lips came nowhere close to looking as hot as those above...at least I did it! 

Here is my look:

{I fought with blogger all.day.  This is how this pic wants to uplaod...so there.  Take it.}

Question: 

How do you pick the right shade for your skintone?  I am positive I did not pick the best shade.  And how do you keep it on?  Tricks to the trade, please!?

I am growing out my long hair.  I usually know what style I would like to go with once it gets this long, but I don't.  So I am bound and determined to do more with my long locks this summer.  You know, other than the tried and true pony tail.  They are great, but they get boring. 

So, this weekend, I took a play from cute Katie and her cute lil ways, and did a quirky pig tail up-do, with quirky tips.

  Inspiration:

Here is my look:


{don't mind the split ends...those tacky b*tches!}

It was fun.  I enjoyed it.  Plus, when you rock red lips + red chucks + quirky hair = pure enjoyment!  That much I know. 

What is inspiring you this season?

Love that you rocked some red lipstick! The pic of you is GORGEOUS!!!
Here are my tips, layer! Lip liner, lipstick with lip brush ( really makes a diff) blot, do again, and gloss!

I love the up piggy tails! I use to wear it like that, and now I have been wearing ( all the time) long piggy tails! I am trying to grow my hair back out too! I get so bored!

Happy Meli Monday~
Lots of love

I wish I wasn't so make-up inept! Makeup artistry is a skill I just don't have, but always wish I had. I like the red lips. BUT not as much as I LOVE braids. Can't wait to see your creations.

Yay! I need more Meli in my life. Your lips look gorgeous! I always want to wear a bold color on my lips but am more of a nude girl too. Love your cute hair, I used to wear it that way all the time.
