I love it when celebrities embrace red lipstick. It’s a bold-look-at-me-color that demands attention. Taylor Schilling from “Orange is the New Black” is wearing one of my all time favorite shades, Dragon Girl by Nars. Can you guess who did her flawless makeup application? None other than celebrity makeup artist Tina Turnbow. But look closelyContinue reading “City Girl in Red Lipstick – Taylor Schilling”

Call me a fanatic, but I remove my makeup using a makeup towelette first. My favorites by far are Yes to Cucumbers by Yes to Carrots and most recently the New Cucumber & Sage Towelettes by Burt’s Bees.

I took this Jpg in 2011 when I made the change from a beauty blog to an all red lipstick blog. Now I added other lifestyle posts at the recommendation of my sister Wendy. Not much has changed, I still have various shades of red. How many do you guys have?
My New Tango Red from Besame Cosmetics arrived yesterday and I love it. I also received the Apricot Rouge that doubles as a cheek and lip tint for that perfect sun-kissed look. The plus side is that these hues work on all skin tones and add the right amount of color. The perfect duo forContinue reading “The Perfect Summer Duo – Besame Cosmetics”
I saw this cartoon and instantly identified, instead my touch of color is usually my crimson pout. I wish I knew a cartoonist who could draw me with my signature red lip. I’m in black from head-to-toe 95% percent of the time. How about you?
Reading The Edit by Net-A-Porter this afternoon I re-discovered my love of the striped t-shirt, made famous by Coco Chanel. A classic staple in every chic closet. How do you wear one? Easy, with denim, pearls, ballet flats and red lipstick. A bit of trivia, did you know that the Breton Striped T-shirt has 21Continue reading “How to Wear a Striped Tshirt”
I’m going to be brave and post my current selfie, mind you I hate, hate having my picture taken. I am not photogenic in the least and rarely ever turn out well. The only times I look decent are when I’m behind the camera, go figure. Anyway, this is me and I’m wearing Dragon GirlContinue reading “City Girl In Red Lipstick – Dragon Girl by Nars”
