6 Days of Christmas 2016: Red Lips + Smile Brilliant


This post is sponsored by Smile Brilliant! Thank you for supporting the brands that support In Fashion I Trust!

Hey All! Today’s post is all about the red lip! Now that holiday season is officially OFFICIAL, it’s time to bust out the eggnog, Christmas carols (shoutout to Pentatonix), a Charlie Brown Christmas movie, LIGHTS LIGHTS LIGHTS, and, your red lipsticks! I partnered with Smile Brilliant to show you how a brighter and whiter smile can seriously make a difference when it comes to making your red lip POP!

dsc00249-1dsc00242-1A few things I really liked about the SB system is:

1) The custom teeth mold: After creating a mold of my teeth using the items that were sent over, it was sent back to their lab for customizing. When my teeth trays returned, I tried them on and they fit perfectly onto my teeth. This made the whitening process so much easier. Making the mold is quite easy. The catalyst and base shown below are mixed together to create a paste which is then applied to a tray (not pictured). From there you place the tray and paste firmly onto your teeth to create your impressions! dsc00231-100005-1-001

2) The desensitizing gel: I naturally have sensitive teeth so any changes to my teeth routine can have me squealing in pain with a bite of ice cream. But the desensitizing gel legit helped with the reduce the sensitivity to a minimum*.00005-1dsc00248-1

For reference, here is a before photo of my teeth (taken in natural lighting, no editing)dsc00119-1

And here is the after (taken in natural lighting, no editing)dsc00478My teeth were not as yellow to begin with, but I’m always up for a whiter smile and these are results after using the product for 3 days. I honestly noticed a change after the first process! Like, forreal y’all (I wouldn’t vouch for a company if I didn’t think the product was great). And while recording this video I could tell my teeth were whiter than before.

I wanted to show you guys 4 different red lipstick looks I will definitely be doing during this season.  I went with a dramatic wing liner to complete the look. Hope you enjoy the post and video!

Bright Blue Red (MAC Ruby Woo with MAC Cherry Lipliner)dsc00325-1 dsc00450-1

This color has a blue base which already helps to make your teeth look whiter. It truly is a classic and it works for every skin tone. (this lipstick is EXTREMELY mattifying, so make sure to exfoliate those lips beforehand!). MAC is also having a 25% off sale until the 4th so, be merry friends!

Brick Red (Avenue)dsc00353-1 dsc00448-1

This color is one of those “works with any look” type of reds. It’s warmer toned so it pairs nicely with golden looks. For a more sharper look, I lined my lips with NYX Currant lipliner.

Berry Red (Copenhagen) dsc00411-1dsc00442-1

This berry color is perfect for those who prefer pinks to reds. It has a creamy matte finish, but still gives off so much color payoff!

Deep Vampy Red (LAX)dsc00422-1 dsc00445-1

This color is EVERYTHING! If you’re a bold chick, then you need this in your lipstick collection (and if you already have it, well hey girl hey!)
