Lipsticks and Looks

A girl's best friend.....besides diamonds that is.You may be in a hurry and dont have the time to do your makeup step by step ,layer by layer...so all one has to do is dab on some BB/CC  cream and put on a great lipstick to match your outfit and you're out the door..still looking nice and glammed up.

Now Im a dark lipstick girl..I hate light colors.....maybe because I go out less and put on makeup even less than the times I go out, so for me I always wear a dark shade of lipstick.I like my lips to look full and colroful.I wear bright colors and dark ones but stuff like nude and glosses with sheer pigments,not my style.I should be able to see my lips in the mirror and of course kohl in my eyes at times.

So here whats in this fall as the experts say.I dont beliveeve ina  color specific for a season or year or time....anything that brings a smile on my face is the color I desire and love.
