Readers, I am getting more and more brave when it comes to lipstick. Having avoided a colored lip for years I am slowly started to open my mind to it. It can truly transform an outfit; the other night in NYC I threw on a black t-shirt and black leather mini skirt. It felt good but rather dull. I am not much of a jewelry person so I turned to my increasingly trusty and reliable new friend; my lipstick. A quick swipe of my orange/red Covergirl (yes ladies, Covergirl does some fantastic vibrant lipsticks!) and I felt complete. Avoid any orange/reds with shimmer, stick to matte and flat. Try it, you'll love it.
Well known as a notorious clothes horse, Chloe is always someone I look to for inspiration when getting dressed. However it has come to my attention that her experimentation with make up is something to be inspired by. Her attitude towards lipstick is nothing short of daring! She will flit from bubblegum pink to perfect putty to siren scarlet! I am going to follow her lead and throw out the lip balm and slick on some lippy!
Jean Seberg is the original pixie cut pioneer. Mia Farrow gets all the credit but in fact its was Francais Jean who originated the look. She's as gamine as it gets and is the ultimate in simple classic style. For more of JS check out one of my favorite films Breathless.
