Lips and Colors

When it comes to lipsticks, I play favorites. Stila has my favorites. Once I was introduced to their lipsticks, I put away the rest. What I like is that they go on liquid, but dry on like a lipstick and stay on all day. No smudging! These are the four colors I have been using lately.

"Fiore"   is a hot pink that I use when I am feeling playful. I like wearing it with graphic tees, and  to accentuate bright colors in my clothes. 

"Patina" I use this color with olives. I like to wear bronzer, instead of blush with it. It looks good with dark colors like navy, grey, olive green and black. 

"Dolce" is my go to. It's a nude shade that brings out the natural shade of my skin, and I wear it with casual clothes for an everyday look. 

"Fiery" is my bright red that I save for when I'm feeling extra va va voom. I love it because it makes my smile look bigger, and it brings all the focus to it. Because It's so bright, I wing my eyeliner when I wear it, to blend in the dramatic effect. 

I have noticed that the shade of your lipstick affects the radiance of your teeth. I use Crest 3D White Whitestrips for thirty minutes a day a couple times a week, and Crest 3D White toothpaste. I swear by this brand for inexpensive, at-home teeth whitening! 

And speaking of beauty, I am taking the 30 Days of Beautiful Challenge by trying Clarins Double Serum for 30 days. I will be keeping you updated throughout my 30 days, to see what it does to my skin. Along the way, there are sweepstakes you can enter by snapping a photo that exemplifies beauty and sharing it on Instagram with the #30DaysofBeautiful hashtag. In my #30DaysofBeautiful photos, I will be sharing what I find beautiful. For me, those include a beach walk, natural beauty, flowers and sunrises. 

Clarins combines two age-defying formulas into one ground breaking serum that firms skin, reduces wrinkles, evens skin tone and minimizes pores. 90% of women find it more effective that their current serum. Proven for all skin types, all ages, and all ethnicities

  2. I'm not really into lipsticks, and wear whatever I have on hand, but I see how just changing your lip color can change so much about the look.
