Lip Service - Citrus Beauty

Want to spice up your look this season? Try the newest take on the coral lips.

Yes, coral. The fresh-faced cousin of red is the hot shade of lipstick for spring and summer. A coral and a pink lipstick is a must for your makeup bag and this year there are many shades of both colors to choose from. Corals come in a wide range of shades - you'll see orange, pink and peach shades of coral.

Stars like Rihanna and Solange have been seen sporting this latest trend with a twist of orange.

Regardless of your complexion, this color is sure to complement you.

I decided to pucker up and try Orange Soda by Colour U Cosmetics. You can find this in the Cumberland Mall.

MCK's Suggestions:
1. Orange Soda - Colour U Cosmetics
2. Revlon – Moon Drops Orange Flip
3. L´oreal – Glam Shine Cream 202
4. YSL – Sheer Gloss Stick Tangy Orange
5. M.A.C. – Morange
6. Revlon - Coral Reef 170

Which shade of coral will you rock this season?

Date Ready Makeup

So you have a date tonight. Your outfit is together, you're smelling good, you have your face set, but you don’t know what to do to complete the look. A bright pink lip and smokey eye may be super haute amongst your girlfriends, but sitting across the table from your cutie at your favorite restaurant? Eh, not so much.

Most men aren’t huge fans of makeup anyway. Many find it distracting. Some think it's deceptive. Either way, wearing makeup is a must for a doll.

Keep it simple. Besides, you don’t want to scare him away the next morning when your makeup is all over his pillow. Uh, yeah, anyway, highlight one feature at a time.

I’m not a relationship expert, but I hear from my guy friends that the most alluring parts of a woman’s face are her eyes and lips. Bring out your eyes out with flattering lashes or Rimmel Glam Eyes Lash Flirt.

Pucker up with some Velvet Touch #122 Nougat creamy lipstick from Gosh.

One splash of your favorite perfume and out the door you go! It's the weekend baby and it's time to play! Got a hot date? I do! Hehe.

Swapnista With A Sista!

Looking for something to do on this beautiful weekend? Check out "The Prettiest Day Party To Hit Atlanta" for Swapnista presented by Pretty Girls Rock Dresses and Fashion Envy, LLC. Rock back and forth to the live DJ, mingle, swap clothes, shoes and accessories you no longer need or wear.

I guess it's time for a little Spring Cleaning. I always have a feeling that I can repeat a style. Like, you know those burgundy shiny shoes with the thick sole I used to wear in the 8th grade? Ooh or those hunter green Gauchos. Okay, I can definitely keep those.

Do you still have that dress in your closet that you know you wont wear again? Swap it out. Do you have a cute purse that you can't seem to find anything to wear with? Swap it out. This isnt your grandmother's average swap meet. The event will feature a fashion show, mixing and mingling with industry experts and refreshments.

Check out the flyer below for details.

Cute Sundress. Check. Mani and Pedi. Check. Light makeup and lips poppin'. Check. Now thats how a Pretty Girl rocks a dress!
