Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together. – Elizabeth Taylor
I guess there really is a national holiday for everything! I just happen to love lipstick and lipgloss, though, so I’m all for it. I also just happen to be wearing my favorite lipstick / gloss combination. I was at the beach all last week and am just returning back to work so I needed a little Monday morning pick me up. A cute summer dress (that is also comfortable) and bright glossy lips helped send me on my way. As I get older my skin keeps getting drier making it important to find moisturizing lipsticks and glosses. MAC seems to have the perfect formula for my lips that I count on and I love their colors.
MAC’s Lady Danger lipstick with Lipglass in PRRR (yes that ‘s the color…..PRRR) swiped over it works well with my red floral dress I chose for an otherwise mundane Monday. Lady Danger is a very bright orange red. I love to wear it on its own when I’m out at night but I typically blend it with a nude gloss to lighten it up for day.
Mondays can be tough but the right attitude and a cute dress to lift your spirits makes it better. As my mom always says, put on a little lipstick and everything will be alright.
Here are the two I wore today with the link included…
MAC Lady Danger
And a few other favorites I keep in my bag always…
NARS Orgasm Oil-Infused Lip Tint – peachy pink shimmer
tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Lip Rescue in Rose – When you want a lip balm AND pretty color this is the one!
MAC Date Night – It’s purple and it’s fantastic. But it doesn’t look purple on your lips – just the most perfect plummy glossy color for day or night.
Gloss it on, get out there and smile! And every little thing is going to be alright.
