"The Classic Red Lip: Not For Every Woman"
Her post made me think about lipstick shades...those that flatter and those that don't.
Luscious and Juicy Red Rose Hips
The Humble Bungalow Bathroom has the best lighting so that's where this experiment takes place.
My nose got a wee bit burnt on the last few days of our holiday.
I wear an SPF of 30 but there is a double dose of rays when one is out on the ocean.
(rays from above and then reflected up again from the sea)
Grey linen Tee from Monoprix
White Club Monaco jeans
custom made gold and diamond necklace
On my lips I am wearing
Fresh Sugar ~ Tulip
(my everyday shade that I wear in the bungalow while doing domestics or gardening)
It works better if I wear my glasses.
I can see what I am doing!
Chanel Rouge Coco Orchidee Lipstick
(a rosy red)
Jennifer mentions that a bold lip takes centre stage and the eyes almost disappear.
One must choose to focus on either the eyes or the lips when choosing make up.
Which one do you prefer to highlight?
Maybelline #055 Pink~a~licious
Maybelline #547 Pleasure Me Red
(purchased in Paris)
I wear this shade for evening or when I want to capture and remember a bit of Paris.
I think red lips are quintessentially French!
Janet over at The Gardener's Cottage wears Poppy by Aveda.
She's written a post on beauty and I think you might like to pop over and read what she has to say.
I enjoy her blog so much.
(and I am in love with her gorgeous house)
Country Living magazine did a shoot at her cottage and are going to be featuring it soon.
I can hardly wait!
Do you have a favourite shade of lipstick?
Hope that you have some fun scheduled this weekend.
I'll be focusing on watering our newly sodded back lawn.
I'll share it with you sometime soon.
