The Lipstick League Weekend Posts

Question of the Week: – If you were advising a makeup newbie, which three items would you suggest that they get to start with? (not counting base items)

Answer: – Brow filler of some kind, mascara, lip gloss. Those are the very basics I MUST wear when leaving my house!

Prime Beauty – gets downright giddy when she discovers a new beauty brand and Rae Cosmetics has her squealing with delight. See why!

Phyrra – compares theBalm’s Shady Lady Vol. 1 and 2 side by side for you.

Vampy Varnish – talks about common new blogger mistakes and how to avoid them.

we heart this – A love letter to Sally Hansen Salon Effects in Love Letter (which just happens to be a perfect, easy Valentine’s manicure too!)

Beauty Junkies Unite – It’s raining tulips everywhere! Just kidding, it’s the review & swatches of OPI’s new Holland Collection for Spring/Summer 2012. I couldn’t decide which were my favorites, so I’m actually wearing different shades on my fingers and toes right now!

Clumps of Mascara – talks about an issue that many women go through or have gone through. In this week’s TMI Tuesday, we are talking about birth control.

Gouldylox Reviews – Is totally in love with this almost magical lip treatment. Yeah, it’s that good.

    Good question! Hmm…the 3 items I’d recommend would be lip balm, an eyelash curler, and a brown eye shadow. I feel like all of these are basics that give you a natural look, but once you get into more colourful looks, you can easily work these into any collection.

    Happy Sunday, Kelly!

    Great question!

    I would recommend mascara for sure, and definitely a sheer lipstick/tinted lip balm – something like Clinique black honey. Then, depending on the person’s eyebrows, complexion, and style, I’d recommend either an eyeliner, a soft blush, or a brow powder.

      Hi Emi at Project Swatch,

      That’s true, not everyone needs a brow filler. It’s the first thing I always think of for me because I look like an alien without them filled in, haha!
