It’s Berry Season…
Ok, so we’re starting with the lips. Most days I’m all about the “My Lips But Better” color. But I do like to change things up a little with a change of season. I’ve traded in my beige-y pinks of Spring and Summer for some wearable berry shades. (My definition of berry: a little deeper and more sophisticated than pink, but not as dark as plum.)
- Sheer. Though it looks purple in the tube, this Lip Glow in Berry goes on as a slightly deeper shade of MLBB. Those of you with cooler and/or darker coloring may find this is your perfect “no lipstick lipstick.” It feels and wears like a balm.
- Bright. “Berry Squeeze,” is a nice raspberry color. It actually looks redder in the tube than on the lips. Satin finish. If you want to go for impact, pair with Maraschino lip liner. For a warmer or more neutral look, line and fill with Neapolitan lip liner first, then slick this over. (Makeover Workshop lip liners are fabulous. Stay put for hours, and prevent color bleeding.)
- In-Between. Again, don’t let the color in the tube scare you. This color (Calla Lily) goes on as a semi-sheer, warm berry color. The formula is very moisturizing and lasts for hours.
The Eyes Have It…
Even if you are a makeup minimalist like me, framing and defining the eyes makes SUCH a difference. Brian is offering a special Beauty Box for eyes that includes my very favorite brow pencil, an eyeliner, eyelash curler and a bonus mascara. And check out his latest how-to video co-starring yours truly, along with the gorgeous Sandra Sallin. (Don’t worry, I did not poke myself in the eye with that mascara wand!)
Do you change your lip color or makeup with the seasons?
