The Red Lip

Last night's Golden Globes were very enjoyable, like everyone I love seeing the glam, and the more the merrier in my books. I cannot wait to see The Artiste...has anyone seen it? Also W.E. ~
The one thing that stood out to me were the number of RED, really RED, lips, ala 1950...Vibrant!
Back in my makeup artist days, there were two reds that I used for that look...

MAC Russian Red...after blotting, it will still be on your lips in the morning, it is that long lasting. A bit dry, but mattte mattte matte and there to stay ~

For a creamier version, Chanel has several options, Dragon Rouge Allure being one...
be sure to air kiss with this one though!

Angelina had it down perfectly... (if she would only lose the tattoo)....

Today we celebrate the life of a man with an incredible dream ~

Have a fabulous week,


  1. I absolutely thought Angelina looked stunning. I'm with you, the tattoo just kind spoils the perfection. I've been wearing a red-orange lipstick lately and I must say I'm really liking it. My mom would of been thrilled. She would always say to me, "go put on some lipstick!!" It's was a running joke with all of us girls in our family @ Christmas. I have not seen the 'Artiste' but I sure hope to as well as 'W.E.' Nathalie thanks for the tips on some great reds. I hope your week is a great one as well. Happy MLK Day!

  2. Hi there... this is a great post ... perfect for Feb. 14th!! I agree Ms. Jolie would definitely look so much more elegant sans tattoo's with such a lovely dress... Happy Monday..xo HHL

  3. Ooh a makeup artist too! It seems like you've done just about everything there is to be done! I love the red too. Wish I could pull that one off! I definitely want to see The artist very soon!

    Gosh, it's been a long time. Very happy new year to you, Nathalie!!!


I love hearing from you!
