In spite of the fact that I often complain about my body and am constantly dieting and working out, I DO have a feature that I absolutely love and wouldn’t want to change.
I was once stopped by a random man on the street who said, “pardon me, miss, but you have very kissable lips.” And then he walked away. It was bizarre, but not really offensive.
And interestingly enough, he totally confirmed what I sorta already knew. ; )
For many years now, my makeup routine hasn’t deviated much. I like a pretty neutral eye, demure blush, and lipstick that flatters my coloring. But over the last year, when I’ve gone into pick up new eye shadow or blush, I’ve randomly asked salespeople what color lipstick they thought I should wear…just to see what they’d recommend.
I’ve been pleasantly surprised in most cases.
And as a result, my lipstick repertoire has broadened!
The one thing that hasn’t changed is that I ALWAYS wear lip liner. Lip liner allows me to highlight the sweetheart dip in the middle and elongate the corners of my smile. Sometimes, I fill in my lips, but sometimes I like a little definition. I also NEVER wear gloss. I have fine lines that cause gloss to feather out or “bleed,” which just makes my lips look messy.
Here are a few of my newer lip looks. (Please forgive the hair in bun after a long day look…and the cheesy self-portraits!)
Do you change up your lip color or does it stay the same on a daily basis???
