REVIEW & SWATCHES | Burberry Kisses Family (lipstick, glosses, balms)

Today I wanted to share a few items from the Burberry Kisses family of lipsticks, glosses, and balms. As part of my partnership with the brand, I've been blessed to try so many amazing products from Burberry but I've got to admit their lip products totally stand out as being stars in the entire lineup. Gorgeous, luxurious, and totally wearable for the everyday woman, it's only natural that recently some of these have become my go-to lip products for a moisturizing feel for everyday. I have my designated lippies for when I want to make a statement but I also like something I can throw in a purse and pull out for an extra hint of color without too much fuss and I can say Burberry knows how to kill it in both arenas! 

Burberry First Kiss Glossy Lip Balm

To start, the Burberry First Kiss Glossy Lip Balm which imparts a sheer and moisturizing layer of shine. The color on these is incredibly subtle but enhances the lips from their natural color, which is nice for lazy days. I also really like the porcelain tips which leave a cooling sensation during application! I loooove these but expect not to see drastic differences between colors on medium skintones since this is definitely a balmy product.

Everyday Contour & Highlight Tutorial

One of the questions I get asked most frequently in person is if I can teach how to contour for everyday wear. Although I've done contour and highlight tutorials separately in the past, it's just one of those makeup techniques that isn't necessarily straight up obvious and can seem intimidating or a hassle to do everyday. 

The upside is that with contouring becoming ever so popular via the Kim Kardashian revolution, companies have also developed some really fantastic products that truly make the task so easy that it's quick and effective for everyday use. Hooray!

Today I wanted to share with you my everyday, totally do-able contour & highlight routine featuring the fantastic Burberry Effortless Face Contouring Pens which I had promised I'd do a tutorial showing you how I use. A little extra sculpting and lifting (using makeup which is painless, unlike surgery or exercise haha) never hurt nobody!

Q&A with Wendy Rowe

Hey everyone! As someone who is passionate about beauty and following dreams, I find it so important to seek out the perspectives of ladies who inspire us. Today I wanted to share with you Wendy Rowe, Burberry's Make-up Artistic Consultant who is a fountain of makeup wisdom and uses her talents to help develop products and visual direction for Burberry's runway looks each season. Dream job status, am I right? Not only is she an impressive #girlboss but is a truly charismatic and inspirational woman in person so I wanted to take my opportunity of collaborating with Burberry to interview her and get a peek inside her life!

As Burberry's Make-up Artistic Consultant, you have a big role in guiding the beauty look for a runway show -- what's your first step in that process?

It always begins with a conversation with Christopher Bailey and looking at the collection together. We talk about the ‘woman of the season’ and I then go away and do some research, come up with ideas which I then present to him. Christopher will tell me what he likes and dislikes until we realize his vision.
