We have grown tired of the blistering winds, the grey skies and black dreary coats that has surrounded our lives. Thankfully the time is getting closer to stuff that dreary down coat in the back of your closet. With the beloved season of spring right around the corner, we anxiously wait for the blossoming flowers and sunshine weather to appear, but for now we have to wait and prepare.
An easy way to get ready for spring is to incorporate color into your lifestyle, whether it is decorating the living room with a batch of tulips or a brightening your outfit with lavender flats, choosing COLOR over dark gloomy shades will brighten your mood and help you escape the winter blues you have suffered with for the past few months.
A simple way for us ladies to achieve such happiness is to refresh our makeup routine with colorful lipsticks! Making the mouth the focal attention of the face, bright lips is a fun way to enlighten your mood, change your look and show that you are spring ready! The only problem here is that there are too many colors to chose from!
Not to worry I have found the perfect color to match any skin tone! As one of the “it colors” for spring, blood orange ( a mixture of red and orange) is the ideal hue to swipe onto your lips. Weird as the color may sound, it actually does compliment all skin tones!
