Top 3 Lipsticks Every R.G. Needs in Her Arsenal

2 Aug

I’ll admit, I really do not wear lipstick often. Maybe it’s because I speak a lot and I have some irrational fear that it will get on my teeth. But even though it might not be a constant, I have a lipstick for every occasion and style. If you are still building your cosmetic wardrobe or simply just love make-up, take a look at my three have-to-have-them lipsticks:

The Perfect Red

This is the hardest lipstick to find. “This red has too much blue” and “this one has orange undertones” are excerpts of conversation that are all too familiar to any daunted shopper on the hunt for her red. Here’s the thing, your best friend’s red is not going to be your red. Also, she might swear by Lancome but Cover Girl might suit you just fine. Either way, try a few at a Sephora or a department store and then look at yourself in natural daylight. By the way, Chanel “Gabrielle”is my red and rumor has it that it’s many others as well.

A Semi-Frosty Pink

I’m not talking old lady frosty pink but something pretty for when you look tan or girly. The trick is to go with something without silver sparkle in it. That’s a deal breaker. Warmer tones are always more flattering and goof-proof. I think I have six tubes of Politely Pink from M.A.C. lying in different handbags.

A Go With Everything Nude

Nude lipsticks are like a good push-up bra; they make you look more…ahem…pronounced, all while playing a supportive role. You should think of nudes this way.  They compliment a smokey eye just perfectly but can also be mixed with any other lipstick or gloss. NARS Belle De Jour has enough color so you don’t look washed out.
