Minimal is my game except when it comes to lip colors, which happen to be my jam in the beauty department. I love trying new shades but up until recently I’ve really started to pay attention to the colors that compliment my skin tone and coloring {rather than contrast}. Since having a few hair and makeup trials before our wedding, I’ve been more regimented with my skin and have been working hard to find ways to make more out of less. I’ve realized that a lip color is a game changer when it comes to brightening up your face and really letting your features shine. It helps to pull out those natural colors in your cheeks, your eyes, and just makes you glow.

Because I don’t wear a ton of make up, the matte lipsticks feels really harsh on my skin so I’ve been opting for products that have a sheer application or moisturizer within the color. Both of these add the perfect hint of glossiness to your lips and helps them to not dry out {with matte lipstick I feel my lips get dry really quickly}. Because I have a warmer complexion with a good amount of freckles, brown eyes and darker hair, rosey to reddish/orange lip colors really pull out the colors in my cheeks, whereas a pink looks amazing on blondes who have a lighter complexion {so envious}. Again, this is my take on a more natural look, I’m all about having fun and pulling out my favorite fuchsia lipstick for a night out with the girls!

So, what are your recent go-to lipsticks? I’ve been rotating between 3 newcomers: Lancome Replenishing & Enhancing Lip Color in Red Chiffon {like butter}, NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Timanfaya Park {the prettiest orange/red and SO soft}, and Sonia Kashuk Satin Luxe Lip Color in Very Berry. But, for fun you can shop all of my favorites below!
