Think you can't wear sexy nude lipsticks like Kim Kardashin? I will show you how.

Image: Kim Kardashian (© Michael Tran/FilmMagic) Some people think they can't wear nude lipsticks maybe because your lips are too dark or you feel the lipstick makes your lips look too big.  But I beg to differ. This lipstick will make your lips look sexier!  Here's what you have to do, first start off with clean lips free of glossies, etc.  Then as you put foundation on your face, put some on your lips.  This will lighten your lips, or kind of neutralize them.  Now outline your lips with a neutral color liner close to your skin tone.  I tend to think nudes a little more on the tan side as opposed to the pink side looks best on me and most brown skinned to dark skinned people. But try pink if you like – it may just work for you. Pink is really hot now-especially that Barbie pink (MAC Pink Nouveau) Apply your nude lipstick. With a lip brush, blend your lip liner with your lipstick so you don't see a hard line around your lips.  Now just add a little gloss-emphasis on little you don’t want it supper glossy. Viola - You have the sexy nude lip!

Iman Foundation

I'm a little afraid to post this because some of the items that I've blogged about aren't in stock when I need them You guys are buying them all up. But that's a good thing. I share my knowledge to help out so obviously I’m helping by spreading the word on good products. If you have specific makeup questions feel free to ask me – Keisha[at]keishawillisbeauty[dot]com and I'll help. This blog is about IMAN foundation. I’m sure you all have heard of the beautiful super model Iman from Ethiopia who happens to be married to the legendary David Bowie – can you tell I’m a fan of her’s :-)

I am extremely leery of drug store foundation. Foundation is so vitally important to the finished look your makeup gives. IMAN cream to powder and foundation stick delivers AMAZING results. The color match is perfect – my color is Clay 3. These foundations are specifically made for women of color - such as Spanish, Asian woman not just for Black woman. Since women of color come in such a vast diversity of hues it’s great to have such an incredible product that delivers these results. I'm tossing all my MAC foundation for IMAN. Oh yeah it's that serious. And for only $14.99 it's a STEAL. Try it, I promise you'll love it. Plus it provides an instruction leaflet on how to apply the foundation - I've never seen that. You can this foundation anywhere – I’ve seen it in Target, Walgreens everywhere

I give this product thumbs up and a gold star!
