BEAUTY BAR: Mauve Madness

As a lipstick enthusiast, I can say that fall and winter colors are my all-time favorite. Ask any of my friends and they’ll let you know about my lipstick hoarding obsession—it’s serious. I just feel like lipstick can change a look from day to night, sweet to sassy and simple to fabulous. Don’t you agree?

Most people think that winter calls for bold, dark lips and vampy vibes. While I agree with this, you cannot deny the power of mauve. This Fashionista agreed with me and accomplished the perfect winter beauty look with a touch of mauve on her lips.

A lot of us don’t have time to get ready in the mornings. A schedule consisting of waking up late and running to class doesn’t really call for a full-face beauty routine. However, this Fashionista proved us wrong by achieving a fresh and fabulous look in just a few easy steps.

As far as her outfit goes, she started with a denim mini skirt, which I love because it’s one of those items that’s a blast from the past. She paired it with a beige crop top and some black, cut-out sandals. For a touch of color, she threw on a rust-colored, cross-body bag. Now on to her easy-to-do beauty routine; she kept it simple with a couple coats of mascara, blush on the cheeks for color in her face and a bold swipe of Nude Nuance by Maybelline.

For me, the beauty department in my local drugstore is my haven. There is nothing better than picking up a new tube of lipstick and trying it out for a night on the town.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To complete this look, all you need is a plum-colored blush, your favorite mascara and a mauve lipstick to pull it all together. Remember to keep the rest of your makeup on the light and natural side as far as bronzer and eye makeup goes, and you’re good to go!
