I have never, ever been a lipstick girl. I really don't even use lip gloss. I stick to the standard, boring chapstick. Seriously. It's kind of lame. As a teacher, I don't really get to rock the coolest, trendiest fashions. It's the standard flats and comfort clothing for me. I rock (and I'm using that word extremely loosely) the same make-up style every single day. Oftentimes, I rush home from work to meet D to head to a beer event and/or bar. On days like that, I look especially teacher-ish in my cardigan and flats. I've been trying to amp up my going out style a bit more by curling my normally flat, straight hair. Since a curled do takes me a minimum of 30 minutes to complete, I need a quick fix. All of this to say, I'm thinking about trying out the lipstick look.
Sarah over at Wearing It on My Sleeves had a great post the other day on her lipsticks. She looks especially stunning in Sephora's 0194 B, which is a fushia. She's also a stunning brunette with darker skin tone. I doubt this would work for me.
Bring on this advice! Look at that pale skin (don't be deceived by the bathroom lighting) and light colored hair. What lipstick would be best for me on a semi-casual night? I'm just trying to graduate from little girl to "woman" (say what?! I still don't feel right calling myself a woman).
Tell me your fav lipstick colors and tips for applying!
