I have been doing some reading and research over the months since I started blogging and here is what I learned and experienced. Usually the first thing that runs through most of our minds when we think about how to pick the right shade of nude lipstick is that it should match our skin color. If you’ve been thinking that all of these years I’m here to tell you unless you’ve got a cold and your lips actually match your skin, you’re wrong. It can be hard at first but with a few tips I’ll show you how to pick the right shade of nude lipstick for every shade of skin.

The 1st Rule of thumb is as follows. Keep on reading :-

3.  Choosing Your Lip Color With The Right Undertones. Here are some points you might want to know when choosing your lip color :

Fair Skin with Pink (Cool) Undertones: Your cool undertones mean you’ll want to pick a lipstick with hints of blue, and steer clear of anything orangey

Fair Skin with Yellow (Warm) Undertones: Choose something with a tinge of orange, which will complement your skin tone and make your eyes pop. As a general rule, you’ll want to stay away from pinks — they’ll wash you out.

Medium Skin and Tan Skin: Lucky you! Your complexion goes with almost everything! Not only can you indulge in so-called “true reds” — which are the perfect combination of pink and orange — but your choices also run the gamut from pink, orange, cranberry and even deep oxblood or brown tones.

Olive Skin: Olive complexions can be surprisingly finicky. Your complexion has yellow undertones, but lipsticks with too much of an orange base can look off. Pick reds with a slight hint of blue in them, like a berry hue; and if you feel the combination isn’t working for you, go for a sheer or glossy version.

Dark Skin: Both blue-based reds and orangey reds look excellent with your complexion. You’ll enjoy brighter reds, a range of coral tones, true reds and deeply saturated berry tones.

Thanks for taking the time to read and hope to see you on the next one! If you have any questions or would like me to do a more in-depth post on any of these products, please  let me know – you can leave a comment below, on my Facebook page or email me.

Ciaté Nail Polish – Sephora Bag!

ciate nail polish

I got this two items a few months ago all the way from Asia when my daughter went for vacation and  she got me these from  SephoraInside this Sephora bag is the Ciaté London Mini Paint Pot Nail Polish and Feathered Manicure. I’m excited an anxious to share what’s in the bag. Continue reading if you like to see more …


Why only do I posted this lovely Ciaté Nail Polish today. Well, honestly the shades are pretty much the fall colors and I just wanted to wait until it’s nearly fall to wear and share my views.

Let’s start with the nail polish in this cute packaging.


Everyone has their benchmark for ‘good nail polish’. Mine has become Ciaté recently. Love the Ciaté brand polishes, gorgeous opaque color, even wear and no chip for a week.


Also available at JC Penny, Sephora, Nordstrom and Amazon online. Each selling for CAD$10.00 at Sephora or purchase 3 for $18.00 with 30 shades to choose from.

In this package you get Tickle Me Crazy (Green), Knee Highs (Blue), Can Can (Burgundy), For The Frill Of It (Golden Bronze) and Sass Pot (Dark Purple).


The consistency of these polishes is very nice. They are highly pigmented with two coats are more than enough, without any streaking at all and no bubbling (even when applied thickly). Some might find the consistency a bit on the thick side but with the coverage and pigmentation I get, I have no complaints at all.


The application was fantastic, it gliding on so beautifully and was quite opaque for one coat! It dried very quickly also, so I didn’t have any smudges on my nails. The packaging of the bottle is immaculate! The handle of the nail varnish is a great size, which is nice for a steady application.


They also last really long. It can easily go 5-7 days with barely any chipping, even when applied just to my bare nails (no base coat or top coat).


Yay! Overall, these are definitely a great product. 100% recommend! Here are the color swatches of the nail polish. Ta…Da!!!

Ways To Wear Purple This Fall

It’s no secret that purple is one of my all-time favorite colors. I have a fair share of purple eyeshadows in my collection and I love to share talking about it in this post. Can anyone tell me if you have more purple products than most people have neutrals? I want to know. Are purples kind of like Pokémon for you, gotta collect ‘em all!



I love wearing purple eyeshadow on occasion! And when I do, I try to go all the way out with it. Purple is associated with royalty, wealth and power for centuries since Queen Elizabeth 1 reign.

Whether it’s a bright purple on the lid or a deeper purple in the crease, I love how purple looks as eyeshadow. Duochrome shades are definitely the best, since they’re multi-dimensional. Lighter iridescent purples are great to pop at the inner corner to highlight and open up the eyes. Purple mattes are perfect in the crease for contouring the eyes. I love wearing purple eyeshadow, it is super flattering on my brown eyes!

Purple is perfect for eyeliner too! My favorite purple eyeliner is the Gem Eye Pencil in Ultra Orchid by Starlooks, 24/7 Urban Decay Glide-On Eye Pencil from the purple colors of Vice to Empire and NARS Larger Than Life Long Wear Eyeliner in Bourbon Street. These also make great colored bases for eyeshadows too, to help intensify an eyeshadow color. They’re great for layering.

Purple blushes can be very intimidating. The Balm has the right plum shade that’s the most flattering, plumish purple blush that I’ve ever tried is the Instain Staining Blush in Pinstripe. For a softer pinky purple blush, try Makeup Geek Secret Admirer. Or go bold with a deep violet blush like Fyrinnae Royalty.
