Red Apple Lipstick’s Fall 2017 Color Report

Hello Red Apple Girls, If you follow us on Facebook you’ll know autumn has been on my mind and today I took a look at Pantone’s Fall 2017 color report. Let me tell you these colors are beautiful!

 

For this blog post, I thought it’d be fun to gather a collection of makeup items that fit into Pantone’s Fall 2017 colors and create our own Autumn 2017 palette of sorts. If you’d like to reference Pantone’s article you can do so by clicking here. Below you’ll find I have listed Pantone’s colors and next to them you’ll find our counterpart. 

 

Selections of Fall Makeup by Red Apple Lipstick

This first palette is inspired by Pantone’s Fall palette based on New York fashion week. 

 

  1. GrenadineRisque
  2. Tawny PortWine & Dandy
  3. Ballet SlipperPixie Dust
  4. ButterumLike U Latte
  5. Navy PeonyDeep Navy Eyeliner
  6. Neutral GrayTaken For Granite
  7. Shaded SpruceOlive This Color
  8. Golden LimeSage Rage
  9. MarinaMermaid Lagoon
  10. Autumn MapleSugar & Spice

Then, our second palette here is based on Pantone’s palette for fall based on London fashion week. 

 

  1. Flame ScarletRed! 101
  2. Primrose Pink Pixie Dust
  3. ToastLike U Latte
  4. BluebellMermaid Lagoon
  5. Royal LilacViolet Femme
  6. OtterDirty Girl
  7. Navy PeonyDeep Navy Eyeliner
  8. Copper TanBeachside
  9. Lemon CurryGolden Ticket 
  10. Golden Olive Sage Rage

 

Both palettes have similar colors with slight variations here and there. What excites me the most is the brighter pop of red and that purple color from the second palette. Two words come to mind, unexpected and fun. It’s a great way to play off of the neutral fall colors. I’d love to know your thoughts on these colors. Which ones do you love, are there any that you’re not a fan of and are there any other Red Apple Lipstick products that you think would fit into these color palettes? Let me know in the comments. 

 

Thank you for taking the time to read this blog post and I hope it gets you as excited about fall as it has for me 🙂

How to Help Treat A Chalazion

By the title of this post, you may be wondering what in the world a chalazion is.

 

According to sites like Mayo Clinic and WebMD, a chalazion is an inflammatory lump in the tear gland of the eyelid. There are an estimated 200,000 US cases per year and they tend to be more common in adults who also have blepharitis and/or rosacea. A chalazion will usually resolve within a few months but occasionally will need to be removed by a doctor.  If you suspect that you have one you should go to your doctor to confirm your suspicions. That way you can get diagnosed and will know for sure.

 

A chalazion looks like a lump on the eyelid and may be accompanied by redness on the eyelid. It feels like a small bead in the eyelid but it doesn’t hurt and left untreated it can get bigger and redder. More or less it is just unpleasant to look and but it does not hurt. 

 

As I’m writing this post I currently have one. So I figured while things are fresh in mind this would make an excellent blog topic for me to share how I go about treating it. First, I’d like to share my background with these though. 

 

The first one I had over a year ago in my left lower eyelid (current one is on the right upper eyelid) and I was super freaked out! I mean you see a lump on your eye and that’s a pretty freaky thing. The doctor that I went to calmed me down and told me that this unsightly bump was just a chalazion and I could try treating it at home. He did say that if it got bigger or did not go away I would need to have it removed. I was determined to not have surgery so the following are the things I did and am currently doing to help treat it. 

 

  1. Warm Compress- I found this to be the most helpful thing and it seems to be the most recommended treatment. I like to warm up some water and steep a round tea bag (I use Green Tea) in the water until the tea bag itself is warm. I will then lay the tea bag on my eyelid that has the chalazion. I let this sit until it’s cool and then repeat the process. I usually do this a few times in the morning and then a few times in the evening before bed each day until it goes away.
  2. Holistic Eye Drops For Styes– While a chalazion is not a stye they do have similarities and I’ve found the Similasan Stye Eye Relief drops to really help with redness. I prefer these ones because they are gluten-free, dairy-free and have what I would consider being clean ingredients. Especially, in comparison to most over the counter eye drops out there.
  3. Don’t Wear Eye Makeup– This is a hard one but if possible try to not wear eye makeup until the chalazion has cleared up. Even the cleanest makeup out there can irritate when you have one of these things.

 

In learning more about what a chalazion is I actually wasn’t all that surprised that I get/got them considering I do have rosacea. It’s just a major bummer when you have things to do and places to go and then you have to cancel everything. I have found by following these steps though I can get it to go away within a few days to a week. To me, this is WAY better than having to go in and have it removed.

 

 I’ve also considered maybe trying the eyelid cleansing oil and eyelid foaming cleanser from We Love Eyes. They have a set for blepharitis and while I don’t personally have that I’ve been thinking that this could maybe also help to prevent more chalazions from showing up in the future. I haven’t seen anything on their site about chalazions but I’m thinking maybe it could at least help. 

 

I didn’t want to share any pictures with you in this post BUT if you are brave enough you can google Chalazion and see for yourself what these look like. They’re really strange! 

 

As stated in the beginning of this post if you suspect you have one make sure to see your doctor so they can confirm your suspicions. I will also state that I am not a medical professional and this advice is just based on my personal experience. I hope you found this blog post to be informative and helpful. Thank you for taking the time to read it. I’m also curious to know if you’ve ever had one before. If so let us know if you were able to treat it at home or if you had to have it removed.

 

Fingers crossed I can get this one to go away on its own like last time,

Ashley
