The MOST GLAM Make-Up look EVER!


Something amazing happens when you wear red lipstick! You feel the sharp stilletto confidence of all the glamorous women of the 40's & 50's who carefully placed red lipstick on their lips if they were donning a fur and heading out on the town to dance the night away or if they were going to vacuum their living room in their heels, looking as beautiful as ever!
*Cleopatra used crushed Carmine Beetles to dye her lips red. And if red beetle juice wasn't enough she used a base of ants to keep it all together! Talk about the "price" of beauty! yuck.

*In 1871, Guerlain produced the first official red lipstick! Thank goodness, they put an end to people crushing up beetles and bugs to make their lips ruby or crimson.

*Hazel Bishop, one of the first organic chemists, in 1950, thought of the first smudge-proof, long lasting lipstick that won't smear on clothing or cups. It was a huge success and sales from Hazel Bishop Inc. with it's lipstick increased sales from $49,527 in 1950 to $10,100,682 in 1953. Sadly she lost control of her business, but what she did shows the power of lipstick!
Icons of beauty that truly made a mark with their RED LIPS...
Marilyn Monroe, Gwen Stefani, Jayne Mansfield
Lucille Ball, Lena Horne, and Carmen Miranda...

This is my fast go-to, make-up look, because in just a few minutes you can look so glam and be out the door. AND red looks great on everyone from dark complexions, to olive latin skin, to pale with red lips!
I love L'Oreal Infallibe's Lip Color in Beyonce (red)...
 
So get ready to let me show you how you can be glamorous, gorgeous, and how to do it in no time at all!
Get ready to drop some jaws and stop traffic with the glam, pin-up look!



huge love and big red kiss prints...your kandee

PS. I got the BOW ring I'm wearing in the video at Forever 21 & the palette I sue for my eyeshadows is the a Zpalette click here to check out their other awesome animal print palettes!

Brianna said...

I love that flute music you use :).

loredana said...

hello, i have a question , do you think that the look that you did goes well with green eyes?thanks

Kathleen Neves said...

Such a easy look, but yet it doesn't look like it once its all applied. I think I am going to try it out on myself. I want to rock a red lip for my job interview on Monday. Thanks Kandee!

vanillaa said...

Very pretty, I love that lipstick-color on you!

Hey Kandee, thanks for sharing all this with us!
I bought the lipstick after the first time you showed it in a video.
The only problem is that it's sold with a different applicator in Germany, it's like the balm stick. So it's really difficult to apply because it's pressed so hard...In your vid it looks more like a glossy texture and much easier to do :/

They even used to put lead into lipstick and other cosmetics :) fortunately they stopped :D

amyj said...

Hey Kandee, I was wondering where you got the case for your eyeshadows from :O its super cute!

Andee Layne said...

CopyCat said...

I believe that the look would look great with any eye color.

cess.thotts said...

hey kandee! thanks for the awesome video. love the l'oreal infalliables :-) one question...where did u get that cute bow ring? love it!

Jen's Page. said...

Hey Kandee,
Today I found the latest lipstick you've been saying so much about. I 've been looking everywhere in mkeup stores recently, trying to find it..and today I FINALY did!
I was sooo excted to have found it!
BUT! Sadly...here in Australia..it cost $34 dollars. I was so upset to find this out..
I just thought I'd let you know.
It seems unfair to me that this lipstick that you love would be so cheap in the USA, but so expensive here.
Any way thank you for telling us about it. I hope one day to have saved enough to buy one.

From a Big Aussie Fan Jenni xoxo

Susie said...

pretty I especially love the lips ;o)

Elizabeth said...

love it!
i agree with the red lip thing getting the most compliments.
for school one day, i wore the MAC cyndi lipglass plus my usual brown/black gel liner and mascara. my lab partner was like, "whoa, you look really pretty today! do you have a date?" lol

i will have to check out the l'oreal color though...

@LeQuaintrelle i think that palette might actually be one of those Zpalettes-- one of her Glaminar sponsors.

Love this lipstick.. it is truely the first red i have ever been able to wear! Its my new favorite.. love this look thank you kandee!!!! hugs

Elizabeth said...

lol You are SO funny in this video! I really love this look, it's not 'over the top' glam - it still has a semi-natural feel to it. Fantastic job lovely lady!! :)

AliceInWonderland said...

Oh I love 40's and 50's and I always wear a black eyeliner and red lips!

I really love this look! It is weird though because I tried eyeliner on my bottom lids for the first time and it made me look like a freak! Have you see that before? I have pretty normal/slightly larger sized eyes. Guess it means one less step for me.
thanks again Kandee.
PS request: Do you have a video for very natural looking make up? I can't find one. I want big bright eyes with minimal make up. Possible?

Necole E. Bluhm_WaMLady said...

Next (personal) make up shopping trip I take, I am purchasing:
fluffy brush
the Beyonce red lipstick
Thank you for the tutorial; looks gorgeous!

Auria said...

I believe its a Z Palette... is that right? GORGEOUS look kandee! i will be rockin it with my new blonde hair :D ah ha!

you're beautiful kandee! i love your positive outlook, it always makes me smile.

Jaileenex3 said...

I love your ring. Where did you get it? I've been looking everywhere for it and i can't find it. Help?

Courtney said...

I love your blog so so so much but I wanted to mention that cosmetic companies still use carmine beetles to product their red lipstick which is why, unless they are a vegan company and use natural pigments, most vegetarians and vegans cannot/willnot wear red lipstick. I just thought it was important to mention that they are still killing the little beetles for beauty.
I would love love love it if you could do a comletely vegan look one day! That would be so amazing! Love your blog Kandee!

Kristin said...

I would love to rock the red lips, but I'm TERRIFIED of lipstick. How do you find the right color red?

C@r!ie said...

where did you get that bow ring?? I love bow anything!!

SPOILMEBEAUTIFUL said...

I love makeup random facts! please post more on the history of makeup!

Jackie said...

They do still use carmine in a lot of make up today...

DSK Steph! said...

Gorgeous! :)

intyale said...

Try a Tauple coloured liner for your waterline. Keeps the look light for daytime use. =)

Chynna said...

I use Illamasqua Intense lipgloss in Temper. It's the perfect orangey red gloss that's so opaque but not sticky. That there is worth a grin!

Lupescupe said...

Actually, besides concealer and foundation, I just wear mascara (sometimes white eye-liner in my waterline) and red lipstick. It's my daily look! :) It's fast and pretty, I just love red lipstick.

But unfortunately, that L'Oreal lipstick isn't working very well for me. Maybe my lips are too dry or something, because it does come off! Kind of like, peals off. It's weird. But at least it doesn't smear. :)

Also, because I hadn't said it before (I think it's my first time commenting--you get so many comments, I hope you get to read this one!) congratulations for your pregnancy! I hope your baby is born healthy and strong! :D

l-article said...

I looove the look~ And thank you so much for recommending this lipstick!! It's my favorite red! I even went and bought it in Crimson red also~ I looove it!

Keat ' Camafeo said...

"Oh no! Where's my top lip?" You're hilarious xD

I love red lipstick, its makes everyone look so diferent but so pretty =)

Amy said...

Love the red lips. I have two might be strange requests. I was wondering if you could do a Kelly Ripa look, and a Rachael Ray look. Thanks!

purplegypsy30 said...

Hey Kandee, I loved ur review for L'oreal Infallible, thank you so much. I be mad pimpin that Beyonce ;). Could you plz do a review on the MAC Longwear Lipcreme?

didie said...

i love this color..but too bad its not available in my country...does anyone know if i can get this online?

Bonnie Rose Bryan said...

Just an FYI: Most likely, your red lipstick still has crushed carmine beetles in it... of course, you don't have personally crush them, nor see them being mashed up, but most red dye that is used in cosmetics and foods still come from that same beetle Cleopatra used.

nubiennze said...

I still use products with carmine...it's more natural than lake dyes/FD&C colors...*shrugs*

Jen said...

Hi Kandee- I love your blog. Just thought I'd mention that there ARE crushed up beetles in that L'oreal infallible lip color. The ingredients on the company's web site clearly list "carmine" in them. In the end though, I think that there are a lot of worse things they could put in lipstick than crushed beetles! Haha. At least they're "natural" right?

Hardcore Makeup Junkie said...
