First off, how is it already the end of August??  Anyone else feel like this year has flown by?    Us too!  Although its been a lovely summer, we are beyond ready for this 100 degree weather to end.  And as the temperatures start to cool, we are starting to get ready for all things FALL 🍁🍂!  Bring on the boots, oversized sweaters and bold lippies!  We are ready, are you?

This season is already seeing a little nod to the 90’s as all things plaid are trending – think Gwen Stefani meets Clueless.  Gwen’s fearless style and brazen beauty looks are so imitable, we rounded up some great examples of how to rock a vivacious lip stick or stain  a la Gwen thanks to some of our favorite desi beauty bloggers.  Be sure to give the bloggers some love by liking, subscribing and following their socials.


This trend might seem familiar as tannin tints have been taking over since last fall, making this a style thats even easier to adopt.  What makes this even better, is the subtle brown in these moody colors are quite flattering on our skin tones.  We love this look by Cali beauty blogger, Ami Desai.  The wine-inspired hue is radiant and brooding in all the right ways!

Starting to reach for my 💄with more color and I’m kinda loving it! This @jouercosmetics lip creme in Cabernet is a rich matte red. I added a tiny bit of balm on top to prevent that little crease a lot of liquid lipsticks cause especially in darker hues💋 Also using my fave @nyxcosmetics warm neutrals palette (everything linked in my page) Other makeup deets below: _ @thebalm schwing liquid liner _ @narsissist blush in deep throat _ @milkmakeup kush mascara _ @wander_beauty concealer & highlighter duo in medium _ @flowerbeauty light illusion foundation in soft sand _ @hudabeauty easy bake setting powder in banana bread (review coming on this!) . . . #motd #jouercosmetics #nyxcosmetics #makeup #darkerlips #hudabeauty #hudabeautyeasybake

This easy peachy pink looks wonderful with the inherently golden undertones of more honeyed skin tones like Arshia while also naturally complementing the rosy pinks of more fair skin tones.  Darker skin tones can opt to use this shade as a nude.  Either way, the best part is it’ll make your skin look like its radiant!

I get a lot of questions on what equipment / apps / programs I use to edit my pics, so here we go💁🏽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 99% of my pics are shot with my iPhone 7plus. I am upgrading to an X soon but I prefer my phone over any other camera🤓 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I mainly use 3 apps to edit my pics: •Facetune: Who doesn't use this app? The trick is to be super subtle! I use it to whiten the background, make my eyes pop etc. I don't normally edit out any blemishes etc, cuz I'm human and no one is perfect. With this app, less is more. •VSCO cam: Love this app! I use it for overall editing of the pic. Lightening, darkening etc. I also love the filters in the app! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •Lightroom: LOVE this! I use it to basically change up the colors of any pics (swipe to see how I toned down the yellow from my shirt in the original picture using this app). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Again, I prefer less editing in my pictures but that's just a personal preference and these are always my go to apps! Hope that helps 💖 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Foundation: @lancomeofficial Tibet idole ultra wear in 415 •Concealer: @kyliecosmetics in Amber •Bronzer: @toofaced baked luminous glow bronzer in sweet tea ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •Blush: @narsissist Orgasm ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •Highlight: @tartecosmetics blush and glow in Peach Glow •Eyes: @shophudabeauty warm obsessions mini palette with @bodyography glitter pigment in supernova. •Brows: @anastasiabeverlyhills @norvina Dipbrow pomade in Dark Brown •Lashes: @hudabeauty Noelle •Lips: @buxomcosmetics plumpline lip liner in restricted with #kyliecosmetics liquid lipstick in Dirty Peach

Every gal needs that poignant red in their lip stain arsenal that empowers and embodies the #girlboss.  This is that red that is unforgettable, beyond classy and oh so femme.  When shopping for this color – its always best to look for a blue red for medium to dark skin tones.  This look by Maryam Shah is #perfection.







Sublime and understated, this look opts for a swipe of peachy pink nudes that instantly make skin look like its glowing!  Our girl Nita looks incredible in the #MOTD look featuring this peachy nude.   Her skin is 🔥!

Feeling freckly today! 😊 I spent hours trying to figure out a solid method of achieving subtle, faux freckles. What do y’all think?! I linked makeup details via the app and also down below!

Do the same thing with a dark medium so it’s more natural! • • • • #lablogger #motd #motn #makeup #mua #selfiesunday #makeupaddict #makeuplover #makeuptutorial #fauxfreckles #beautyguru #grwm #beautyblogger #youtuber #beautyexpert #makeuponfleek #summerbeauty #beautyjunkie #armanibeauty #narsissist #benefitcosmetics
