Makeup in general has always been one of my favorite steps when it comes to getting dressed. Sometimes I hate putting on eye makeup (simply because there is nothing worse in my opinion then having to take it off!) so I just stick with a simple routine to get myself out the door. A little blush, concealer, and lipstick and I’m good to go! Lip color instantly enhances your entire look and makes you come alive. I find in the winter months looking so pale and worn that I just need a little boost of color to brighten my entire face. Over the summer, there is nothing chicer than a great tan, simple dewy skin and a pop on your lips.
Being that I have an olive complexion, my light pinks always are my go-to favorites but sometimes I like to be a bit adventurous and experiment with peachy oranges, deep reds, and even nudes. I tend to prefer matte lipsticks (yes, they are very on trend) but sometimes I do prefer a little bit of a glossy lipstick for extra shine and moisture.
I’d have to say out of everything my go to light pink which I wear on a day to day basis would be M.A.C. Creme Cup and Urban Decay Native. I dabble in M.A.C. Saint Germain if I have a nice tan, as well as M.A.C. Tropic Tonic. My all time favorite (and I personally think) the best matte red is M.A.C. Ruby Woo. I clearly have a favorite brand (hello M.A.C.) but I do love Smashbox’s Talk to me Matte for the best matte hot pink.
As you can see in my latest three posts here, here and here (as well as so many others) I’ve been rocking reds and hot pinks all Summer long. Click above or below to shop my top picks. x A
