Nude in the New Year

And by nude I of course mean nude lips! I am so obsessed with nude lips and I just went a bit crazy with getting a bunch of new nude shades to ring in this New Year. I am going to discuss all of the different colors I got and discuss all of the different brands and how they differ from one another.nudeinnewyear

So first, as all make-up gurus should know, you should ALWAYS use a lip primer or baume before applying lipstick. Applying a primer or baume before lipstick is key to the most amazing lips. The primer not only makes the lipsticks look nicer on the lips but it also adds hydration and shine. My favorite lip primers to use are by MAC and Chanel. {MAC lip primer, Chanel lip baume}

My favorite nude lip by MAC cosmetics is called Crème D’nude. This is just an awesome completely nude lipstick. There are no hints of pink or shimmer so it really gives your lips a completely nude look. {MAC ‘Crème D’nude’}

My favorite nude lip color by Nars is called Honolulu! It is almost like a honey nude color and I absolutely love wearing it. It also layers really well with some of the nude lip liners and lip pencils that Nars has to offer! {Nars ‘Honolulu’}

The best thing about YSL lipstick is that it is so infused with moisture that it glides on so silky smooth on your lips. I love YSL lipsticks and their 001 color, which is their classic nude color, is great. {YSL ‘001’}

I rave ALL the time about how much I absolutely LOVE Tom Ford’s lipsticks. If you have not tried them run out right this instant and get yourself some. I swear by this stuff. It is the best lipstick ever because it actually stays on for the whole day! And, the blush nude color is so pretty on the lips! I highly suggest this one! {Tom Ford ‘blush nude’}

Also!!  VERY EXCITING… this post is also my first post on hautemessmag.com!!  Everyone be sure to go check it out and follow hautemessmag on instagram and twitter!  Let me know if any of you go out and try these nude lipsticks so that we can all be nude in the New Year 😉

2014 Holiday Gift Ideas

As the holiday season is quickly approaching the fun of buying gifts for you BFF, sister, or Mom can sometimes be so difficult!  As you all know I absolutely love shopping and I actually like buying gifts too!  It’s fun because you can give them what you would wear (in hopes to borrow it, hehe)!  So in light of some people having a difficult time thinking of gifts to give their sister’s and mother’s I have put together some gift ideas for this holiday season!

First I HAVE to talk about this micro Kate Spade purse!!  I saw these when I was home over Thanksgiving break with my Mom and Sister’s and I just fell in love!!  These purses are TINY but so so perfect for your phone, wallet, and of course lipstick!  This purse is the perfect purse when you do not want to lug around your whole life with you!  Just slip it on your shoulder and go!  Seriously guys, I’m obsessed with it!  Marc by Marc Jacobs and Michael Kor’s are making little micro purses too!!  Only six inches wide, I cannot get over how cute they are!

What could be cuter than black and white polka dot Betsy Johnson flannel pajamas?! That’s right, nothing!  I love cute pajama sets and every winter I love getting a new set to wear while I’m home for the holidays!  If your parents live in a very cold state like mine do then this Barefoot Dreams robe, slouchy beanie by Ugg Australia, and UGG slippers would also make for perfect gifts and they will keep you Cozy chic all winter long!

What Mom, Sister, and BFF doesn’t like getting new lipgloss and candles?!  You cannot go wrong when it comes to the Bobbi Brown lip gloss!  They come in a nice pack of four (and gift with purchase if you are ordering from Nordstrom, win)!  Another perk of this awesome lip gloss is that it is not sticky!  I hate when I buy a new lip gloss and it is super sticky but this Bobbi Brown lip gloss is not sticky at all and completely smooth!  The Kate Spade candle collection is so cute and so much fun!  Each candle has a different saying on it and during the winter months is my absolute favorite time to light candles, makes the whole house feel so warm and cozy!

Perfume is always a great gift to give someone!  Most women use perfume everyday so getting new every year is always much appreciated.  I have always loved how the Chance by Chanel smells, it is one of my go to perfumes!  And last but not least, the lovely Tory Burch has a new watch collection out that I love!  This Tory Burch watch would be such a fun layering piece to add to your arm candy!  It is a wrap around watch so it is a bit more unique than just a normal watch band.

I hope I have helped some of you out when it comes to giving gifts or maybe gave some of you some ideas of what to add to your wish list this year!
