Beauty, makeup
foundation review

I went to Nordstrom to purchase the famous Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, as I’ve heard so many positive things about this product.

how to apply red lipstick

Nothing says bold and sexy than the perfect red lipstick. There is something about this color that speaks confidence while making the perfect statement.  Red lipstick dates back to the classic Hollywood era where women all over were rocking this bold statement piece that has never went out of style making it timeless which you will never regret looking back.  The current trend is the matte red look which is what I went for using Ruby Woo by MAC cosmetics to get this velvety red texture. You can use your favorite red lipstick that you know works well on you to achieve the perfect red lips in just 4 easy steps.  Just remember to try and keep the rest of your makeup as soft and natural as possible to allow the focus to be on your bold sexy red lips!

You’ve heard the saying that fashion is wearable art, right? Look no further than this stunning Farrah Khan sequin blazer to confirm that idea.
