International Women’s Day

Hello and happy Sunday. It also happens to be International Women’s Day! Yay women! I thought I would make today’s blog post a thank you to all the great women in my life. I have a lot of strong women in my life who have helped me get to where I am today and I am so grateful for that.

  1. My mom- who has been probably my greatest support throughout my life. She always has been there for me through it all and I am forever grateful for her.
  2. My grammy- she is where I get my feisty and spunky side from. She is a small woman, very petite, but she is strong and mighty when she needs to be. And she has taught me how to be as well.
  3. My group of girlfriends- these girls have been through some of my worst and some of my best times. They are my extended family and are always there when I need them. They make me laugh and cry. They are truly the best friends I could have.
  4. My aunts- I have quite a few and they are all like second mothers to me. They support me and love me like I am their own daughter. And I know I can always count on them for help.
  5. And finally, to all the other women out there, who may be leaders, entrepreneurs, fighters, caregivers, and anything in between. I appreciate all you have done for us other women and will do for us in the future.

Thank you and happy International Women’s Day!!!

I’m working with one of my best friend’s today to see how we both style a red lip for date night. These are also great options for the holidays. Enjoy!

Peyton’s look:

Contour: Anastasia Beverly Hills and Fenty Maple

Highlighter: Fenty Trippin

Lip liner: Changel Paris Lip Liner in Scarlett

Lipstick: Chanel Paris Rogue Coco

Eyes: Anastasisa Beverly Hills contour (base), Fenty galaxy Pallet in Cosmic Ocean and Midnight Bolt for the shimmer, Maybelline liner in brownish black (liner), and L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara in black

Brows: Glossier Boy Brow

Peyton’s Tip: Use the same shade of lipstick for the blush when doing a red lip

The final look, isn’t she gorgeous?

Kitty’s tip: I always apply a red lip before I do my base, makes for an easier clean up if you mess up.

Mine finished look

Side by side comparison

Kitty’s look- has very subtle eye makeup and a brighter red lip color
Peyton’s look- adds more shimmer to the eye and a slighty dark red color to her lips
