#FlBeautyBloggers Guest Posts! Judi from JudiXO

Hi Darlings!!

Hi! My name is Judi and I blog at http://judixo.blogspot.com. Today I'm going to share with you a look I wore recently when on vacation in Washington, DC.
 I limited the amount of makeup I took with me, because I wanted this trip to be more about where I went and what I did versus how I looked when I did it. I wanted to spend as much time around the city as possible.  On our final night there we went to a bar called Whitlow's on Wilson.  It was a rooftop bar that was spectacular.  Our friend told us rooftop bars are getting popular in the DC area.   It hasn’t caught on here in my part of Florida, but it’s a great concept.  I loved Whitlow’s because the weather was just perfect.  There was a cool breeze, but the sun was warm enough to keep you from shivering.  And the views were great from the rooftop.  

That night I wore:
Eyes
Milani Shadow Eyez in Champagne Toast – all over the lid
MAC Summer Haze – center of the lid
Urban Decay Virgin – inner highlight
Urban Decay Buck – outer V and crease
Physicians Formula Eye Booster in Ultra Black
Milani Brow Tint Pen – 02 Dark Brown

Face
Urban Decay Naked Skin in 5.5

Cheeks
NARS Desire

Lips
MAC – Candy Yum Yum
MAC – Flamingo
Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain – Sweetheart (later that evening) 

 I love how I paired Candy Yum Yum with Flamingo.  Flamingo is pink with a hint of coral. It’s a lustre so it has a nice sheen.  Candy Yum Yum is matte neon magenta pink.  I like how it Flamingo made Candy Yum Yum a bit lighter and have a pretty and bright sheen.  My lips almost look like they are glowing from the inside out.
Since Candy Yum Yum and Flamingo are both limited edition shades, I decided to leave them safely at home.  I took along with me a Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain in Sweetheart.  Once I felt my lipstick was fading, I put the balm stain on to help keep my lips moisturized and colorful.  I’m surprised how well the colors interacted with each other. (See below, a picture of me towards sundown.)
I love the look of layered lipsticks.  With the countless combinations you can add so much depth to an otherwise ordinary look!  What are your favorite lipstick combinations to wear?

  Much like Judi I am also a fan of layering lippies to get custom colors and intense glossy finishes. I also have to mention that Revlon Balm Stain in Sweetheart is one of my all time favorite lip colors!
