Lipstick Promises






What I Wore

Chambray - Target/Camisole - Target (Suddenly Skinny)
Earrings - Forever 21/Necklace - Forever 21


One of the interesting things about getting my photo taken to post on a blog is how it has changed my getting ready routine.  I am generally a person who waits until the last minute to apply lipstick/lip gloss.  In the past, it wasn't rare for me to put on lipstick as I arrived at my destination.  However, what I have discovered about getting photos taken is that I need to put something on my lips even before I head to the car.  I have had a few uh-oh moments when I have looked at photos, and if you think it is hard to get someone to take photos of you once, try getting them to retake those photos! :)  It was an "ah ha" moment for my everyday life as well, because I realized how much I really need that extra pop of lip color.  The other thing I  learned is that pale lipstick is really like not wearing lipstick at all for me. So, I decided to post the dramatic  difference that wearing bright lipstick makes for me. What was the last "ah ha" moment you had?

  1. If I ever went someplace without my brows on I would die! I must pencil those on even before I eat breakfast.

  2. I have to admit that blogging caused the exact same epiphany for me. For years I've been more a chap stick girl, but as I've looked at the pictures I've realized that it only takes a little color to make a dramatic improvement. Next stop, mascara and eye liner! (No promises on ever getting to foundation though ;-) )

    1. Rebecca - So glad I'm not alone in the lipstick department! I also have to use eyeliner, and now that I blog, I think I have been using too little most of the time! First world problems, huh?!

  4. I used to always wear pale pink lipsticks but now since I started blogging I have bought some deeper shades which suit better for photos! Love your denim shirt... I have put one in that shade on my Spring list. Have a good weekend!

  5. I have very dark lips ... so am okay with no lipstick, at times. And like you, light lipstick doesn't even show on me.

    As always ... you look lovely.

    Fondly,
    Glenda

  6. I only apply lipstick for photos. Otherwise, it's just too much effort. I used to be addicted and couldn't stand my lips being bare. Then I saw the photos too! Funny how a little thing can make such a big difference. :) Love your chambray shirt.

    1. Alison - It's funny how putting on lipstick seems like it would only take a second and yet it is one of those things that seems like it takes so much extra time!

  7. I adore your necklace! The lipstick thing is so true. My mum pretty much tells me off if I turn up at her place without lipstick, especially if she knows I've just been to the shops. Out in public without lipstick - shocking!! :)

  10. Hi Sara, yes, those wallpaper pants are so comfy. Surprisingly comfy too. Although, in my pictures the pants look too tight but they really aren't. LOL Let's see you style yours!
