You know, Fashionable Reader that I love me my red. It's just so very vintage. Wine can be vintage too, but I urge caution with dark lipsticks. They can be aging and harsh.
Ok, that's bondes, how about brunettes?
Now, if your are blessed enough to have a proper not-just-white -girl complexion? Oh I envy you, because you can rock this look!
But notice how each of the lovely ladies above has opted for a slight variation in shade to best compliment her skin? That, my dears, takes such skill.
You can never tell if it will work in the container, or even on the wrist. And, I'm learning the lippy shade doesn't work with every outfit nor will it necessarily suit long term. I've grown out of some lipsticks, and find others only work with certain dress colors. It's all so complicated!
Retro Rack is also on facebook where I post additional images and fashion thoughts.
