As the years have gone by, I have noticed that lipstick has become more acceptable and popular within younger generations. Looking back to my early years in high school, I cannot seem to remember anyone my age rocking a bold shade of color on their lips. Remember when all the girls in school would carry at least one tube of lip-gloss with them everywhere they went? Most of us even had our own little collection—a glittery one, a clear one, a pink one and so on. It may be nice to have glossy lips but it is hard to not be bothered by the stickiness of the gloss. Although wearing lipstick seemed tempting, I never did because I felt like it was only appropriate for middle aged ladies. Oh how wrong I was! Lipstick looks beautiful on everyone. There are so many colors and shades to choose from. The best part? It does not have that sticky effect that lip-gloss has and lasts much, much longer. That is definitely something that all once-upon-a-time lip-gloss lovers appreciate.
When talking about colors, whether it is the color of hair, clothing, a painting or even a couch, I have always preferred the contrast between light and dark. This week’s Fashionista welcomes the transition of summer to fall by wearing fresh dark colored dress in combination of light neutrals for accessories. The bright green of her eyes and red of her lipstick succeed at popping out from her fair skin. I personally adored her choice of bright cherry red for lipstick.
Although October is already here, in Tucson it sometimes feels like summer has not ended so it is safe to continue to wear bright colors for makeup, if you please. Once winter gets closer, I would recommend all of you trend followers to replace your bright oranges and pinks with dark and gloomy red and plum colored lipsticks. One of my current favorite dark red lipsticks is the Dolce&Gabbana Ultra. This classic lipstick has a glorious tingle of purple to it. It is rose-scented and will keep your lips moisturized by its soft creamy texture. If you want your lips coated in a wine-red color, Dolce&Gabbana Ultra is a must!
As usual, you needn’t a designer lipstick to achieve this rich wine colored look. Sephora’s Rouge Cream Lipstick’s Crush 23- deep reddish plum is very affordable and rich in color as well! Shopping for lipstick may be very hard even if you already have a color in mind since there are so many shades to choose from. Have a little fun and go lipstick-shopping with a friend that can help you choose a shade that will suit your skin color best!
