So I was in Walmart the other day and got a little sidetracked….. I heard that an article that I wrote for Train Magazine was out (the one with Thor on the cover.)train_thorI talked about how to make your makeup sweat proof. You should check it out. But after seeing all the fun photos of makeup in the article, I was curious about what kinds of treasures Walmart possibly had.

So I wandered to the makeup aisle and found THE cutest lipstick and it was only $6.98flower_lipstickIt’s by Flower Beauty and the color is called LS11-Morning Glory.

Kristin’s birthday was coming up and she wanted to do an extra special photoshoot for it so she hired me to get her ready. So I used that lipstick for her first look.
flower_lipstick_makeup_webI wanted you guys to be able to see what it looks like by itself 🙂 I love it. It’s kind of a cream finish that blots down to a more matte finish.

Here’s Kristin’s before and after, I added a little gloss to vamp it up. before_and_after_kristin_webIsn’t she already beautiful in the before photo?! She gave me free reign on her makeup look and said she just wanted big messy hair so for that I used my fav’s:

Hair: Oribe Beach SprayOribe Dry, and the Sultra 1 inch

Complexion: Lancome Teint MiracleContour by Maskcara in Stone, Temptu Matte Bronzer, Lancome Effacernes Concealer

Eyes: Urban Decay Eyes Shadow Primer, MAC Eyeshadow  in Saddle and Brun. I also used Brun in her brows using the Anastasia angled brow brush and set them with Brow Gel.makeup_glamourbeachy_messy_wavesPhotos of Kristin taken by Emmy Lowe Photo
