Taylor Swift Vibes Only
Right about now, you might be asking yourself, "How many times we are going to talk about red lipstick on this damn blog?!" I'll be honest, the answer might surprise you. We are going to keep talking about red lipstick, until people out in public stop staring at me, like I have something wrong with my face. So.. that might be.. probably close to forever. You might also be wondering why it is called the "party hard" red lip, instead of like, the classic red lip, or something more lady like. The reason for that, is that I like to drink. Be it iced coffee or vodka, I need a lipstick that holds up to a beverage and I don't really want to reapply it.
With that in mind, there is just no way around it, the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw is my favorite. It is ultra long wearing, it doesn't dry my lips out, its dries with a perfectly matte finish, and the color is amazing with one coat every single time. It's great by it's self, and the other steps just make it that much better.
I like to start by bleaching my teeth, not everyday or anything, like every few weeks. I have this problem where they never seem white enough to me. It's just hard when you're this pale. Your teeth really have a lot of competition. I like all of the Crest Whitestrips, but the one hour are my favorite because I usually forget to do them until I'm having a melt down about how my teeth aren't white enough. I put them on before I shower, then I can take them off about the time I'm finishing up my hair.
After my teeth are at their best, I like to go in with the Too Faced Lip Insurance lip primer to make sure that my mouth is minimally stained the next day. Of course, if you're doing it right, you really won't be leaving the house the next day anyway. But, after that, I use my NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Red Hot. You really don't need lip liner with this lipstick, the reason I use it, is because I have seriously shaky hands. I cannot stay in the lines. This will give you a really nice base and you can go ahead and paint that beautiful, easy to work with, Kat Von D liquid lipstick right on there. Oh my god, it is good! And it is not coming off!
Now, I have to just put it out there, with all this talk of the Everlasting Lipstick, don't judge me harsh if you totally disagree, but I hate Lolita. I hate it. It looks like a Hersey bar smeared on my face, and it ain't even a little cute. No thank you. I returned it.
