Beauty-fuls: Breakin' the Law...breakin' the Law...we heart breaking beauty laws (well rules really)

You know that saying "Some rules are meant to be broken"? Well nothing can be more true than that when applied to makeup.

I mean come on ladies!!! Make up is fun!!!'s meant to be played with.

There are sooo many amazing colors out there that scream..."come play with us!!!!" Transform your dress up.

And yes..I am talking to myself in the mirror as I write this (super hard to do, but I am a girl after all...we live for multi tasking).

Oh and btw...every day Miss Me and I try new things...

She wears her "Magic Lipstick" and I have been rocking turquoise eyeliner with gorge lined lips (OK so I have been known to rock the turq liner for a while now but give me a break! I am trying!)

p.s. this is not me...I wish! But that's kind of the color I super heart and wear...

So here are our 5 most heartville rules that should and actually need to be broken...

1. Blue eyeshadow/eye liner is soooo totally 80's.'s really not.

Sure everyone in the 80's rocked it but did anyone who made these rules stop to think that maybe the 80's just ruined it. It was the decade of excess right? So that leads us to believe that blue liner and shadow should totally be worn... just not in excess.

And think you have to wear bright blue eye liner with only nude lips? That rule is f-a-l-s-e too!
Bright blue liner looks absolutely amazing with pink lips!

OK maybe not like this but blue and pink do look amazing together!

and speaking of totally '80's and pink lips

2. Lip colors should be natural colors...whether it's nude, red, berry, rose or taupe...Bright pink is for only for Barbie past the age of 11.

Here at t.w.h we love to hate this rule. We are obsessed with bright pink and fuchsia lips!

As mentioned before, Miss Me even has a gorge magenta "Magic Lipstick" that she fantastically rocks everywhere she goes and looks TDF.

And to prove our point about breaking the rules...when she wears her "Magic Lipstick" people (men usually) start to babble and stutter in front of her..(it might also be that she is ridiculously beautiful, but the lipstick is for sure magic)

3. Red lips are for night the words of a uber cute girl... "Red lips at night, Sailors delight...Red lips in mornin', Sailors take warnin'"

Who says red lips are only for the night?

OK, so maybe not all of us can be as glam and ridiculously chic as the stunning Stefani with her gorge classic red lips...but we can dream...Ahhhhhhhhhhh.

Ooops...OK dream over.

We may not be able to rock bright red and richly pigmented lipstick like G.S. during the day to meetings, markets, shopping, parks...but we can sure try.

If you go more sheer red with tints or glosses or even sheer lipsticks the red during the day is all yours!

Just like the beautiful and always chic, Kirsten Dunst with sheer Orangey red lips.

4. Finger nail polish needs to match toe nail polish AND Fingers should be pale and save the fun for the toes

Um, hi rule makers...seriously? Those are still rules?

TDF matte navy nails...pair these with the bright pink Essie on your toes and you are super RTG!

Ya... they are and they are for sure super silly. Nothing says fun, confidence and "I embrace my multiple personalities (hey we all got 'em) like toes and fingers that don't match and nothing says fun lovin' like bright finger nails.

Break more rules and try the new and unbelievably gorge new nail trend...matte nails for an out of this world, uber chic look.

Super heart this Essie fuchsia polish!!! Try on tootsies and nails! (just not together...cuz you are shmancier than that)

5. If you are wearing darker lipstick stick to a pale eye...and if you are wearing a smokey eye stick to nude lips.

Dumb alert...ding ding ding...Well it is!

Sure, don't go overboard with thick and heavy make up but the days of one or the other make up are ova'.
You would be surprised how chic and sleek a bit of both are.

But just keep the lips matte and the eye liner and shadow from your eyelid crease down. No need to go all Addicted to Love on us.

You'll look like a gorge lady in Paris...ooh la la...

Break all the rules!! Start Anti-rules...and do it with passion!

xoxo t.w.h.
