Lady in Red…
Happy weekend, everyone!
Let me just start off by saying that this dress is my absolute favorite shirtdress. Of. All. Time! It is a little thicker so it is not see through. The fabric does not wrinkle; even if you are sitting for a while, which makes it the perfect travel dress and perfect for packing. It is a little longer in the back which is a nice detail. I also own the black version but I really like the vibrant red.
This lipstick is my favorite red. I have really considered purchasing a second just in case they discontinue this color when mine eventually runs out. It goes on light so you have control over how dark you want it to be. I usually wear it with MAC Cherry liner but today I have mixed it with Essence Nude, which is only; $2.99! I use the nude a lot to tone down some of my darker and brighter lipsticks.
I have gotten a lot of questions on what contour kits I use and I have several. If I have a lot of time or am going out for a special occasion, I will use the Anastasia Cream Contour Kit and then use the Kat Von D Contour Palette on top which helps set the cream before I blend. For daily use or if I don’t have that kind of time on my hands, I will use the Tarteist Contour Palette (which I am wearing in these photos) with this brush to apply. I really like the Tarteist palette because it smells amazing, goes on quick, and comes with a beautiful pink blush. I am so glad I ordered the Tarteist brush to apply the palette. It is very easy to use and really does a good job blending for a professional contour look.
