It’s that time of year again…Halloween! If you know me at all, then you know I absolutely LOVE costumes, as evidenced by my numerous costume posts. Unfortunately, Halloween always occurs during (possibly) the busiest time of year for me.

I don’t generally wear makeup, but lip product is something I often use. After testing out bolder and brighter colors over the last month or two (with today’s shade being the brightest yet!), I’m finally ready to share some tips. 🙂 Continue reading
