5 Easy Makeup Looks For Labor Day Weekend and LDW Savings

Labor Day Weekend 2019 will unofficially start for Team TME at about 4:30 pm this afternoon and if you’re anything like this crazy bunch of ornery peeps, you’re probably looking to relish every last bit of Summer this Labor Day Weekend. It’s as simple beginning with a replay of the most coveted looks of summer before the season is gone for good. Break out your bright lipsticks, even brighter nail colors and dewy, radiant skin, and say a proper Au Revoir to Summer 2019 with the hottest beauty looks of the season.

The Golden Gaze – If you want that twinkle in your eye to last long after the dog days of summer are through? Apply a drop of water to an eyeshadow brush and dip into Illamasqua Powder Eye Shadow in Tango. The high pigmentation of the shadow mixed with the water will make for unforgettable eyes that are guaranteed to make that cutie at your weekend barbecue stop dead in his tracks!

Pretty Pout - Craving the ultimate coral lip that looks just as juicy on as it does in the tube? Look no further than Benefit Ultra Plush Lip Gloss in CORALista. This dazzling lip-gloss enhances your natural beauty by adding a ton of dazzle with a hint of color.

Entrancing Eyes - Looking to cause a scene with summer crush during your weekend getaway? Swipe on MAC TECHNAKOHL LINER in Metalhead. When placed on the eyelid, the color blue produces a dramatic look that is bold and captivating.

Cheeky Cheeks - Stuck deciding whether to apply blush or bronzer for a nighttime affair? Now you don’t have to choose with Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Pink Mosaic. It’s the perfect solution to giving your cheeks a rosy summer glow, sans hours in the sun.

Nailing It - Just because summer’s over doesn’t mean you have to lighten up on your nails. Bright colors can still be worn during the transitional time between summer to fall and have been seen on models in countless runway shows. Get your last kicks in with Essie Nail Polish in Watermelon. It’s the perfect mix of pink and red that screams sweet and sexy.

Last Minute Valentine’s Day Beauty and Spa Gifts

Hello lovelies! The Makeup Examiner has never really gone for conventionality when it comes to romance. My former fianc√© proposed in the kitchen while he was cooking. He was standing at the stove; I was sitting on the counter top and he casually reached into his pocket, pulled out a ring and asked me to marry him. In return, I walked out of the room, retrieved a ring for him and said, “I will if you will.”
My point is that while roses and chocolates are lovely, they are conventional, sort of boring and essentially a Valentine’s Day gift that won’t last longer than a few days. Actually, the chocolates won’t last longer then a minute around me. Now I’m not saying that anyone need go to the length of betrothal to impress, but thinking outside the chocolate box wouldn’t hurt. Let’s check out some cupid approved beauty and spa gifts for inspiration!

Burberry Lip Velvet ($30) and Laura Mercier Nail Lacquer ($18) make the most exquisite and unique duo for lips and nails. Lip Velvet is the newest offering from Burberry and is available in 12 iconic hues. Burberry Lip Velvet is encased in an elegant metallic check lid that is as beautiful as the lip cosmetic. Pair up Lip Velvet with Laura Mercier Limited Edition Nail Lacquer in a sweet shade like Oh La La! Both items are available at Nordstrom.

For a really amazing and luxurious gift, check out Lily Farm Fresh Skin Care Home Spa ($34). Included in this gift set is 100% certified USDA Lily Facial Cleanser, Lily Herbal Astringent, Lily Facial Lotion, Lily Moisturizing Cream, Herbal Moisturizer, Seven Exotic Oils, Oil of Kukui Bath Oil, Botanical Enzyme Exfoliant Mask, incense and a candle. The Home Spa Gift Set offers everything needed for an at home “getaway” and can be picked up at Lily Farm Fresh Skin Care!

If you really want to impress your sweetheart for Valentine’s Day, with a luxurious gift that keeps on giving all year long, check out a beauty box subscription. Companies like Blissmo, GlossyBox, KLUTCHclub, and True Beauty Box offer beauty and lifestyle products that fit the interest of your love interest. He or she will lovingly be reminded of you every month when the beauty box arrives directly at their front door! For complete beauty box subscription information, visit The Makeup Examiner’s article, “Battle of the Beauty Boxes.”

The Makeup Examiner has an … um … small obsession with fragrance. Okay, truth be told, despite being really loyal to my signature scent by Chanel, I love well-crafted perfume and to me, nothing is sexier then a man wearing a good cologne. Two amazing fragrances that are perfect for Valentine’s Day are Burberry Touch ($73) for him and Burberry Body ($115) for her. Burberry Touch (SO SEXY!) is a clean and refreshing cologne that is light. Touch is the perfect balance of a woodsy scent that is not overpowering, just how a man should smell. And then there is Body, which is best described as a sensuous woodsy floral scent. Body is long lasting without being overpowering and The Makeup Examiner has temporarily put away her Chanel in favor of Burberry Body. Both fragrances are available in Valentine’s Day gift sets at Macy’s.
