Think red lips as in COLORESSENTIAL Paris. Feel free to blend a touch of Paris on your cheeks as well for that quick and easy fresh blush. Line your eyes with the COLOREYEDEFINE Jet or Sapphire liner, accent with the COLOREYEDEFINE platinum/gold and apply a few layers of mascara.
For a Beachy Glow:
Planning on being at the beach this holiday and want to look like you’ve gotten sun on your face, but know better. Sweep COLORFLO Bronzer at the base of your cheekbone, across your nose, eyelids, forehead and chin. Add COLORME in Lotus Sun to your cheeks, and COLORESSENTIAL Boca to your lips and everyone will certainly think you’ve been ‘kissed’ by the sun. Want a little more color for that ‘hot’ evening? Switch out the Boca lipstick for Miami and everyone will feel the heat. Line and shadow your eyes with CORLOREYEDEFINE in Bronze/ Copper and you will have people wondering who that woman of mystery is.
Feeling a Little Girly
Prefer being a little more ‘in the pink?’ Glide on COLORESSENTIAL lipstick in Dallas, a subtle ‘wear with everything’ pink. Feel more girly? Apply COLORESSENTIAL lipstick in LA, a baby pink with endless silver and gold shimmer, or be a temptress in Shanghai- a pink like the perfect peony flower plucked from a Chinese garden. Blush with a touch of COLORME in Peony and you are blooming like an American rose.
Want to glow all night long?
Whatever you decide, have a 4th that sparkles aplenty!

There are a few reasons dark circles appear along our lower lids, so while we can absolutely attribute the occasional shadow to long work days that turned into late — possibly boozy — nights, there may be other factors to consider if it becomes a recurring concern.
Dark circles are dilated blood vessels underneath the eye area, and can form as a result of sleep deprivation, alcohol, allergies, aging, or genetics. To reduce these dark marks, the first step would be to address probable cause. Note that similarly to how your skin might be more acne-prone than others, dealing with dark circles is personal; you have to find what works for you.
To eliminate some trial and error (maybe even some unnecessary spending?), we've consulted with seven skin experts and makeup artists to find out what pros are using to address dark circles.

Like many women, picking the right shade can often be a daunting experience. Susan Posnick reveals the trick to ‘acing your base’ with COLORFLO foundations. COLORFLO provides you with portable, natural, on-the-go foundation and sun protection all in one self-dispensing brush. Although it’s weightless on the skin, and it looks like you’re wearing nothing at all, it still provides plenty of coverage. Far too often, women use the wrong foundation color because they have no knowledge of their own complexion needs, so here are a few guidelines to help you figure out how to choose your best color.
First determine what undertone your skin has. Start by looking at the veins on the underside of your wrists. If they're mostly blue or purple, you have cool undertones; if they're more of a greenish yellow, you have warm undertones; and if your veins look like a mix of green, blue, yellow, and purple, your undertones are neutral.
Once you know your undertone, you can easily find your color match.
Second, determine how your skin reacts to the sun. If you always burn, M1, M2, or M3 ( the lightest shades) are your best bets. If you burn then tan, try M4, M5, or M6. If you tan and don’t burn then M7, M8, or M9 are perfect for you! For darker skin tones, including African-American use M10, M11, or M12.
There are thousands of foundations out there providing all levels of coverage. While this means you have a lot of options, it can be overwhelming if you’re a makeup beginner or want to try something new. COLORFLO makes that a breeze! These quick tips will help you look flawless and pick the COLORFLO Foundation that is perfect for you.
