When it comes to makeup I’m usually more of a minimalist. No shame to the ones who wear a full face of makeup regularly but for me it doesn’t work for a few reasons. 1. My skin does not react well to heavy makeup 2. I work in dentistry so day to day my face is completely covered and 3. I have no idea what I’m doing so I end up looking like a clown. Seriously though, when I look back through the years when I wore a lot of makeup I’m like “what the hell were you thinking?! You look like a raccoon with those dark lined eyes! Trial and error have led me to a simple routine that works well for me where I feel comfortable and put together. Lipstick though has become my kryptonite. Again, I don’t wear it everyday but if we have somewhere to go; a wedding, date night, or even just errands on our day off I’ll put some on and it completely changes the look. I’d say I have somewhat of an obsession with buying lipstick, what do you think?
I tend to lean more towards a bold red lip, especially since I haven’t been wearing a lot of eye makeup. I love the way a bright lip looks with light eyes, it really makes them “pop” without the need to heavy eye liner or shadow. My top pick for the last few years has been Nars Niagara. It’s the perfect orange-red that works for a night out or daily wear.
Out of all the lipstick I own, these are my top choices. Most are drugstore picks, some are from Sephora but they’re all amazing. I’ve linked them in LIKEtoKNOW.it if you want to check them out.
