(what I wore: dress – vintage from The Grey Dog, blazer – f21, tights – hue, pumps – jessica simpson, earrings – f21, tutu as slip – ebay, lips – covergirl outlast + lip perfection as seen here)
I love making summer dresses work in the winter. Sometimes the easiest way to do that is with a dress that has black in it. This tropical dress is so summery on it’s own but with the black tights and blazer, it works for winter as well.
I love wearing bold lipstick but I always get it on my teeth and I hate reapplying after one sip of a drink. One of my favorite tricks is to layer a favorite shade over a longwear. I kid you not, it lasts all day. Working for CoverGirl, I obviously tried the Outlast longwear and it works amazingly. I have looked for other drug store versions and have not been able to replicate so it really is my #1 recommendation. For Red lips, I use Outlast in Everreddy and once it dries I apply Lip Perfection in Hot.
For hot pink lips, I use Outlast in Dusty Rose and Lip Perfection in Spellbound.
