Pucker Up!

In the past I’ve used Fall as my excuse to darken up my wardrobe and make up. Smoky eyes were the norm around this time of year. But this year, I’m loving the look of a fresh face with bright coral or red lips!  Lately, I’ve been wearing nothing but concealer, a tiiiny bit of blush, mascara, and red red lips! It’s a completely different feel than the usual (and rather obvious) choice of vixen-red lips with black eyeliner, silvery shadow, and arched eyebrows.  I love the fresh feel of it!

Worried that crimson and coral are a little too much for everyday wear? Try a berry-red lip stain for a just-bitten look!

What’s funny is that this is a look I remember hating when I was in high school! (you know, when glittery green eyeshadow and baby pink lip gloss were more my thing….)

I love this look. It looks great on you.

I have such trouble keeping red lips though. I always wind up looking like a kid who just drank too much KoolAid. Thick red lipsticks hate my lips for some reason.
I've been using the Tarte (sheer) lip stain in a pinkier color. They have a lovely red shade which I might try.
