Red Lips

I apologize for the massive in your face selfie below.

I was documenting my red lips and showing it to a girlfriend before I got in my car to model for Kokoon‘s spring line.

Then I decided maybe I should post about red lips.  Have you done it yet?

Here’s what I’m wearing, courtesy of goodies sent from me from Ipsy – my monthly makeup subscription for only $10.  I also did this look for NYE.

In other news, you should check out Kokoon‘s website and their current sale and clearance items before their spring line hits in February.  I’ll remind you when that happens because I have a list of things I wanted after modeling some pieces from their line last Friday night.

The buns faces were covered in red lipstick after I came home, but somehow, they got it off.

    I’m so terrified of red lips; I think my complexion (with such yellow undertones and freckles) makes it hard to find the right shade. Looks amazing on you!

    I’ve started a red lip regularly this year! An Elizabeth Arden bright coral that looks red on me. It’s finally a good everyday red to wear. But….I can’t help but not do my eyes like I normally do, which is black liner always. I like how it looks though. Maybe since it is coral it isn’t too dramatic so a darker eye isn’t that bad? I think I look hideous with darker/brighter lips and only mascara on. LOL! My eye staples are black liner, black mascara, and grey/plum/or black shadow. I promise I make it look ok for day-wear because that sounds awful scary typing it out! HAHA!

      You crack me up!! I did wear lots of eye stuff, but by that I mean not doing raccoon crazy smokey eyes. :) I know you know how to wear the right makeup, you always look great! :) Red lips are so fun!
