*But, um…maybe don’t drink the Kool-Aid.
A Makeup Maven-In-The-Making? A poster child for “The Bring Back The Manically Overdrawn Lip” brigade? An avant-garde makeup muse? Who knows? But what I do know is that this little Beauty Marked! jongleur most certainly has a penchant for the pricier, more pigmented lip, that’s for sure. Yep, that’s exactly what a high-end fuchsia lip looks like on a Cheeky Caramel Cutie…just in case you were wondering.
Gloriously enough, not much more needs to be said about this easy on the eye new release from Benefit Cosmetics. After all, isn’t there a saying like pictures paired with pristine product are worth a thousand…something-or-another? Beauty Marked! reckons that with these nifty illustrative pictures and a bit of well placed poppy-pink Posietint you’ll have the prettiest pout and most wonderfully winsome apples around, thanks to this perfectly pigmented product from Benefit Cosmetics. Benefit’s Posietint Lip & Cheek Stain is set to grace our shores from July 2008 and won’t the world be an even more beautiful place then?
Now when Beauty Marked! recommends to “Go the Bold” lip, this is exactly what we mean (as photographed). This arrestingly beautiful and ultra bold lip, courtesy of M.A.C. for Temperly SS08, is just what we are talking about! The trend this spring/summer season is all about picking only one of your many best features and totally showing that one bit of gorgeousness off.
“A bright lip defines the tendency to just identify one element in the makeup this season- it’s all about paring the face back to just one feature. For a switch in attitude from last season, the new bright lip is more attitudinal than luxurious. I’m really into setting a bright lip against a sheeny skin which makes it feel fresh, sporty, and modern.” -Charlotte Tilbury
We are loving the Loud Mouth…without a doubt!

No matter how hard I try, I just can’t seem to pass up a bit of M.A.C. Alchemical magic. The makeup trend seen in many of the Milan S/S 08 shows were, once again, the stuff that dreams are made of. As pictured, the makeup designed for the Salvatore Ferragamo show by M.A.C. was all about the Flesh Metal, juxtaposed by a sheer cheek and seashell shades on the skin and lip. Although M.A.C Gorgeous Gold was the heroine of the Show, this delightful beauty is alluringly devastating with an incandescent eye courtesy of Goldmine eyeshadow and a faint trace of white eyeliner to the waterlines. It’s as simple and universally divine as that!

I don’t know about the weather in your neck of the woods, but in Beauty Marked!’s, it’s been pretty abysmal. Light showers one minute, scorchingly hot and humid the next followed by hail, threats of hypothermia and hideous torrential downpours. The weather has just been unreal and more labile in the shortest space of time than most makeup maven’s FOTDs can, quite possibly, stand. This crazy, ultra changeable weather reminds me of a fun, spirited article I once came across on the web titled, ‘makeup for a monsoon’. Gotta love the web. Oddly enough, I recall it offering some pretty good tips to keep in mind and the stellar pearls were pretty much in accord with anything I could come up with. Lets see…from memory, the monsoonal makeup essentials were:
creamy lipstick in a trans lip/cheek type colour
Long last gel eyeliner
Powder eyeshadow or loose pigment
Makes sense to me. The only things I recall not on the list, but would be an ever-so-useful BM! addition to the Makeup Mavens Monsoonal Makeup Essentials would be:
Lip and Cheek stain
Colour-free Lip balm
With these three added items, you’d be pretty sorted. The lip and cheek stain would be a fab base for when everything else either melted or blew off in all wonky weather. Mineral makeup is generally pretty water resistant, easy wearing, lightweight, and protective while offering you a medium coverage for the most part and doesn’t tend to go manky with heat, sweat or rain. Lip balm…well this ought to be everyone’s staple beauty item as it can be swung in a great many directions with masterful effect for the most part. What other beauty product can you think of that can double or even treble as a hair styling product, cream eyeshadow and blush when mixed with pigment, and function as a spot makeup remover in a pinch? Lip balm can freshen up most makeup when tending to running repairs, all the while acting as a sneaky bit of moisturizer for those rogue ashy patches that can become manifest in the mayhem of the weather of the moment. *idea*
I don’t know about you, but I think you’d be better than sorted if you battened down the hatches with these beaut meteorologically inspired bits of makeup magic in your arsenal. In fact, you’d be one darling ducky indeed.
