Everyday Lip color

It's National Lipstick Day! Here is my everyday go-to color.

Lip color is important. It doesn't matter if it's a stick, stain, shimmer or gloss, it just needs to be visible. Nothing is more distracting than invisible lips! When I use to do makeup professionally, it killed me when a bride would tell me "I'm not use to lip color" and declined to wear any for photos she would look back on for the rest of her life. PLEASE LORD NO, change her mind! May have been words I sent up a time or two. After a little bit of education on lip color, photography and a "this isn't your average day for an average look," conversation....most would have a change of heart.


I have been asked quite a few times over the years what my go-to lip color is and what color I wear on an every day basis. If you have seen a photo of me in the last 5 years I'm most likely wearing it, it hasn't changed. It's been the same since 2015, which is great because it proves it must be timeless and classic! The only thing that varies is my lip liner, because if a get some sun and attempt to use the usual, I too suffer from invisible lip.

Lipstick is similar to brows, when you first starting wearing it and filling them in it feels odd and looks weird (to you). But only to you, because you see you more than anyone else sees you. My best advice, start subtle and you'll be going bold in no time. Maybe you'll even develop a small [large] lipstick addiction and collection. If you don't know where to start, I'm linking mine below! If you have asked me for it in the past, it's still the same ;)
