If you’ve known me forever, you know that I am a HUGE Lipstick person. If you’re just getting to know me…. I am a huge lipstick person!
Lipstick is such a funny thing. People always say to me, “You can pull it off, I can’t.” Well, I don’t think this is true at all, for anyone. If you find yourself saying this to people, or thinking this about yourself.. You just haven’t found the right shade for you! Or, if you love to experiment, like myself… then sit back and enjoy my favorite finds.
Obviously, this is the biggest, best category for lipstick. It isn’t every day that people are rocking a more daring color. This category of shades, I am very big on because I literally do wear lipstick, Every. Single. Day.
I am trying very hard to branch out of my lipstick brands. I must be honest, and you will realize from this post that I am a HUGEEEEE MAC Cosmetics fan, especially for lipstick. It just has the pigmentation, and the “staying on” factor that I am always looking for. You will notice I also steer away from Matte lipsticks, for the most part. I may throw one or two in there.. but NOT in this category.
The lipstick I am holding above is my current favorite. Along with every other instagram-y influencer in the world. Charlotte Tilbury is really killing the cosmetics game right now, and I just joined her fan club. Pillow Talk really is, the BEST “no Make-up, Make-Up” lip color. It goes on so smooth, it STAY ON, and it is so subtle that I wear it everyday for that little “oomph” of lip color.
Here are the rest of my “Everyday” favorites:
Going Out Color
If I am being real, I love a daring lip color. I truly feel like it can make an entire outfit look, come to life. I started rocking red lips in High School, and I sort of became known for it. So embarassing when I think back on it.. seeing as I went to Catholic School and wore a uniform everyday. I was just trying so hard to not look like EVERYONE else in school, so I had to get creative with what we were allowed to wear at school. Apparently red lips were fine. I wore “Mac Red” almost every single day, my Junior year of High School. I can remember going through multiple tubes of it.
Maybe it is the competitive dancer in me, but I have quite the collection of lipsticks. I have linked some of my favorites below. If you are looking for a GREAT everyday red, then ” Mac Red” or “Ruby Woo” is your answer. I bought Ruby Woo on a random day, years ago, and I ended up really enjoying it. Yes, it is a Matte lipstick, but it is one of the ONLY ones I will wear.
If you like the look of Matte lipstick, but hate the feeling of it getting piece-y, then try to Exfoliate your lips before hand. Also, if you are wearing Matte lipstick, then it is VERY IMPORTANT that you do not rub your lips together at all. (Good Luck)
Another Matte color that I always get the biggest compliments on is Candy Yum Yum . If you are tan, this color looks AMAZING! It is super girly.. like, the girly-ist. This shade is just fun. If Girl’s Night called for a certain lip color, it would be this one.
