Our new French au pair Lucie arrived and in her honor I put together somewhat of a French mime inspired outfit, that of course needed red lips. MAC Russian Red, to be exact. So it was sort of French meets Russian, I guess, and everyone kept asking me to mime being stuck in a box, but still rather fun…until my 7 year old asked what I had done to my lips. Nevertheless, such a bold pop of color is a great way to add some excitement, and I’ve been seeing trends towards a hugely bright pink and fuchsia this summer. Watch out Marcel Marceau.
As an aside, red lipstick is a dastardly hard thing to keep on, lest you have a cup of coffee, sneeze or move. Anyone got tips on that one?
