I Am Thankful...For Red Lipstick

Yesterday I attended my daughter's annual Thanksgiving celebration at her preschool.  While I am first and foremost thankful for my wonderful family, I am also going to give red lipstick a close second to thankfulness in the makeup category.   After a short night of not much sleep (try getting in bed at 2:30am- woah!), I wasn't looking my finest waking four hours later to get my day started at the usual 6:30am.   I  am thanking my lucky stars for the power of red lipstick to give my tired face new life...

 {Lips so RED, you are distracted from my dirty hair and tired eyes.}

{Thankful for my girl, sweet Vivian, who only ate a lollipop during the feast!}

  My red orange shade wearing above is "So Chaud," middle shade on right column.}

Never underestimate the power of a red lip.  You really don't need to do much else with your look because it commands all of the attention.  I can't get enough of the orange base of this red.  It gives it a vibrant almost neon look, which distracts from my dark circles and unwashed braided hair.  And makeup is all about the art of distraction, no??!  

Here are some of my other posts regarding red lips here, herehere, and here.  Obviously, I'm a big fan of red lips.

This Thanksgiving season, what beauty product are you most thankful for?
