I love winter. Winter is the season of red lipstick, in my opinion. It was one of my new year's resolutions to make it more than a "one season" color for me. Trying out all different shades has been half the fun, but I've found the lip color that rules over my heart. It's the lip color tint I introduced you to in my previous post. It's turning out to be one of my favorite Christmas gifts. A little goes a long way and stays on for a much longer amount of time than my lipsticks. It's not sticky and my favorite part - it doesn't feel like I have anything on. Perfect!
I like classic looks. I love pairing a bold lip with a neutral eye. Here are some pictures from my makeup look for church on Sunday - featuring my new favorite lip color!

Sidenote: I'm embracing my naturally big eyebrows. No more over plucking and waxing! Just shaping and maintaining. Quite honestly, it fits my face much better. God made me this way. And I'm never looking back ;) Okay...I've looked back a little...at the high school photos with overly-waxed "L" shaped eyebrows. Eeeeshk! Who let me do that!?! I don't want to look back anymore. Maybe one day I'll get past my embarrassment and post "before" and "after" photos. Maybe...
