Perfect Red Holiday Lips

The holidays are a perfect time to rock the red lips!

Start with great tools. I will be using Lip Liner in Red Velvet, Lipstick in Micro Red, and Gloss in Contessa.

If you have warmer skin tone you will want to use Lip Liner in Scarlet, Lipstick in Polished, and Gloss in Contessa or Dulce.

Before you start, use a lip balm on your lips to keep them thoroughly mosturized. Then wipe the lip balm off so your Lip Liner will adhere.

Start by lining your lips with your Lip Liner...

...then fill in your entire lips with your Lip Liner. This will stain your lips and keep color on them even after drinking, kissing, etc....

Now liberally apply your Lipstick...

...over your entire lip.

Last, apply your Gloss over your entire lip for the perfect glossy red lips.

For a pouty full lip apply gloss only to the center of the top and bottom lip.

Rock your red lips and enjoy the holidays!


Freshen up your Creme Eyeliner

Love Creme Eyeliner for it's durability. It is easy to apply using a Shadow Liner Brush and stays until you remove it. If you have problems with your Regular Pencil Eyeliners smudging throughout the day, try Creme Eyeliner for a look that lasts all day.

Creme Liners and Creme Shadows hold up well but tend to dry out in the little pots after about six months. Here is an easy way to make them last longer and keep them super creamy...Simply put a few drops of Makeup Remover in the shadow or eyeliner pots (start with about 3 drops, you can always add more), then "stir" the shadow or eyeliner using the end of a small brush.

Ta-da! Your Creme Shadow or Creme Eyeliner is super creamy again!


Random Wedding Makeup Pictures

Carol wanted a pretty dramatic look to compliment her pink dress.

Tessa had asked for a fresh, natural, and glowing look for her summer wedding.

Stacey had requested a "warm glow with a mild smokey eye" for her Winter wedding.

Aren't they all just gorgeous! It is always a priviledge to work with brides and their parties in getting them "picture perfect" for the big day.


Favorite New Bronzers

The new bronzers and baked finishing powders are here and we are in love!

The Baked Finishing Powders leave a perfect matte or satin finish on your foundation. Individually baked on terracotta tiles, these marbelized finishing powders are handcrafted in the USA.

No sun required for a tropical glow!
Micro-fine minerals impart a natural radiance with this silky-sheer, lightweight bronzer.

Having a satin matte finish it's a wonderful product for an all over glow or for contouring facial features.

All products available at Rig & Co.


Blonde Bombshell

I wanted to give Jessica a somewhat "light" Marilyn Monroe look to match her blonde updo done by Stacey at Salon Sky.
 We chose to give her glowing skin, a light smokey eye, lots of mascara, and bold red lips.
