As excited as I can be about getting in the sun, I also really love rainy days. I love the softer pink mauve hues for cloudy and cozy days.I love to pick out lipsticks that you can throw on for lunch date or when you are just chilling at a friends place or when you want to catch a movie. With a pair of jeans and tee or even the night out party dress. The kickass but casual lip !

I personally love pairing these mauve tones with warmer eye looks, but that’s just my personal preference. As it’s been a bit gloomy here, with some rain thrown in, I’ve been gravitating towards these lipstick shades over the last week.

These all give a beautiful rosy/berry look that awakens the face a bit, just a flush of color for the gloomy weather. Sometimes I wear these as a stain for that just bitten lip look. And if I need any of these colors to stay really long, I layer a liquid lipstick on top of a slightly darker lipstick shade, and that stays on for hours !

For reference I’m around the NC35 skin tone range, but I probably am one of those rare people whose hands and arms are about 4 shades darker than the rest of my body.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend ! XO ❤️
