A childhood interest for art and design grew into a passion for all things beauty. Currently, I’m still smitten.


Long Lasting (Get Noticed) Lipstick

Lots of upcoming cocktail parties, soirees and celebrations in the next few weeks. Perfecting your look is key. Make a statement with a gor-gi-us mouth...bold color is the easiest way to stand out.

Since red hot lips are so right now, one to try is LANCOME L'Absolu Rouge Lipcolor in Absolute Rouge -- claims to be universally flattering. Full color with a hint of shine yet doesn't feel dry at all. Also protects with SPF 12. (Won ALLURE's Best of Beauty Award two years in a row!) Looking for something deeper to double as a stain? Try Berry Noir. $29 at

If you prefer a matte finish, head to your local drugstore for REVLON Matte Lipstick in In The Red. The texture is creamy smooth and comfortable. Full color impact without drying or caking. Take your pick from 13 shades in total/$13.

NARS Pure Matte Lipsticks are ultra-matte! But they actually hydrate lips with a creamy formula blended with Mango Butter. Promises stay-true color (read: long wearing), glides on without dragging or resistance and is available in six shades. I like Volga and Terre De Feu/$25 at Nordstrom.

You should/can/will indulge in saturated color with this classic cosmetic!
