I cannot believe that it is already August, this summer has truly flown by! As promised on #100 of my 101 in 1001 list I will provide updates on my progress. To be completely honest I have not accomplished as much as I hoped this month. My list fell somewhat to the wayside because I was traveling, applying and interviewing for jobs, and focusing more energy on my blog. That being said, I did cross one thing off my list…finding my perfect shade of red lipstick!
#95: Find my perfect shade of red lipstick
This may not seem like a large feat, but if you have tried finding the right shade of lipstick you will know that it takes quite a bit of trial and error. I love a pop of lip color, whether it is light pink or daring red. Wearing red lipstick is such a classic look (when done properly/with the right shade) that I have been hoping to rock. To help me with my search I went to the one place that never lets me down…Bobbi Brown. I have been in love with Bobbi Brown cosmetics since middle school. My aunt Kathy bought me the “Bobbi Brown Teenage Beauty” book as a birthday gift (signed by the author!!) and I would spend hours flipping through Bobbi’s different pieces of beauty advice. This made it easy for me to head to the Bobbi Brown cosmetics counter at the mall for both of my high school proms. Her makeup is a staple in my day-to-day looks, and I knew that she would have that perfect shade of red lipstick to add to my collection. And, I was right! I tried several different options but I finally decided on Vintage Red (also the color Kate Upton is wearing in her Bobbi Brown campaigns!) I cannot wait to start wearing this color to different events in the next few months! If you do not already have that red lipstick you can always rely on, consider taking a stroll over to the Bobbi Brown cosmetics counters, they will help you out in an instant!
