A Red Lip


I did it! I got up the courage to wear a red lip to school. Now that I did it once I think I'll feel comfortable doing it again.

I'm still in love with my MAC make up. It's just too wonderful.The matte lipstick is amazing.


Do any of you use photobucket? I'm having issues with the color of my photos when I upload them. It de-saturates them like crazy. Sometimes it's nice, but it's kind of an odd thing to happen all the time. Do any of you have this issue?

shoes (too old to remember)
lipstick MAC russian red

I promise my hair tutorial is gonna happen sometime soon. I'm trying to figure out what style to do and when to do it. But it's coming!

I hope you all have had a swell Monday!

  3. You always look so nice. I absolutely love this outfit and your gorgeousgorgeous hair. And yes to MAC all the way. As long as my mouth stays grease-free it seems to last forever and for that I love it.

  5. Wow. I seriously thought I was looking at a 1950s pin-up when I first loaded the site. Amazing!

  6. Your makeup is flawlessly chic. Red lips make a woman in my opinion. I have always loved and favored matching a lady's lipstick with her nails.

  9. I love this outfit! I think you made the right choice by debuting red lipstick with a more casual, separates-and-a-cardigan outfit. It makes it a bit more "everyday". Well done!

  10. I was looking for a matt lipstick for a while, so I'm glad that you mentioned it, I'll take a look :) I can't find enough courage to wear red lipstic everyday, so I'm wearing it just in special occasion, but I hope, one day I'll do that more often :)

  11. If photobucket isn't for you, try picasa or flicker. I use both picasa and photobucket, but prefer picasa. Also picasa and google/blogger are connected so posting is easy!

  12. I've had similar problems with photobucket, as well as with blogger. For me, I've fixed it by uploading as a PNG instead of a JPG. Weird and senseless, but maybe it's worth a shot.

    oh, and, I love love love your skirt C: THE BEST.

  13. On some people red lipstick can look out of place or overdone, but it suits you so perfectly it seems like you were born with cherry red lips!

  18. I love red lips (: Just do it, it looks very feminine! I bet most of the girls would like to wear red lipstick but are afraid to wear it. So if you do it, more girls will do it and thats the spirit haha.

    You really shoudn't be afraid of wearing lip stick at work or anywhere; you should wear it all the time!;)

    I borrowed some of your photos for an "Inspiration for fall"-post on my blog, hope that's ok!
