Love and Hate of Lip Color
This is me, wearing Nars' Jungle Red lipstick. This color has really become a favorite of mine and I wear it often.
Yesterday, I decided to wear a bright fuchsia pink, ie MAC's Show Orchid. I have not worn this color in a long time. The last time I put it on, I had black hair and I could pull this color off wonderfully. Now that my hair is back to its natural red state (albeit with a blond streak), colors like Show Orchid do not flatter at all. I saw the pic showing me wearing this shade in my Middy hair post and I almost took it down! Yucky!
Regardless of my vintage look, I think I look better in bold, bright reds. I can also pull off corals, peaches, and salmon pinks. I will reserve the magentas, burgundys, purples, and fuchsias for when I wear my black Bettie Page wig at VNV shows.
So, what colors do you love? Which ones can you live without?
