number twelve: try wearing red lipstick out

 number twelve on my list of 25 things to do before i turn 26 is to try wearing red lipstick out. so, i went on the search to find some red lipstick. a friend sells mary kay & after much bugging, i finally had a house party. i got about $30 credit to spend on any product i wanted, so i was a happy gal. i picked out two shades of lipstick, one of them being "red". once it came in the mail, i was excited & also nervous to try it out. i took it with me on one of my mini trips to stay with miguel for a few days, determined to give it a go. so, one night as we were gussying up for the night, i decided to experiment! here is before:
 & after:

don't mind these crooked shots in miguel's bathroom. i'm still trying to get the hang of taking photos of myself, in the mirror, with my new nikon.
i rather liked how it turned out, but was still a bit nervous to wear it out. so when we were in the car, barely making it down his block, i said, "i can't do it!" & wiped it off...haha. since then, i have worn my red lipstick out, as well as some other shades of red & rather love the spunkiness i feel when i wear it : )

  2. that red looks amazing on you!
    ooh you should try going for a darker deeper berryish red, those always go well with a tanish skin color, at least from my experience.
    thank you for the xmas present by the way!
