Coral & A Cut

Sunday, June 26, 2011


So it's pretty clear from these pictures, that I have turned at least 2 shades darker again.  This would be a result of tennis and outdoor Zumba last week in the 100 degree weather here in Houston, Texas. I always get annoyed when I turn shades because it messes up my whole makeup routine. BUT I did not count on how great the darker skin tone would look with my M.A.C. Morange lipstick!! As y'all know, from my Maxi Magic post, I bought 2 bright color lipsticks from M.A.C.  In that entry I wore the Impassioned lipstick, and tonight I wore the Morange. 

Ensemble:
Dress: Express
Belt: New York & Company
Peeptoe Pumps: Steve Madden (DSW)
Lipstick: Morange (M.A.C.)

I wore this outfit to a new lounge in Houston, called Sanctuary. I went with my good friend Liz. I style my outfits around the bright color lipsticks when I wear them. I make my outfits pretty monochromatic & minimal to let the lipstick hue be the focal point...at least for now. I'm thinking of using the lipsticks for some colorblocking outfits in the near future.  I already had this coral belt in my arsenal, and added it to enhance the lipstick and give shape to the dress. I've had this dress for years, but this is the first time I've worn it...lolol.  The sparkly Steve Madden pumps I bought on sale at DSW in February and this is also their first debut on my footsies! The lipstick is also competing with my freshly painted neon green nails!!

I believe I found a great setting for my camera for indoor pics. The first 3 photos were taken on the new setting and the rest of the pictures were taken on the original setting. I also chopped off more of my hair this weekend. I couldn't stand how the back of my hair wouldn't lay flat in this humidity so I chopped it off!


Luv,
