Thinking of Spring???

I have a love-hate relationship with Spring. I love the weather, but I hate my allergies. I love experimenting with makeup, but I hate when I feel the need to rub my eyes and almost ruin my eye makeup (I usually catch myself before I do serious damage. Luckily, over the years I have developed some serious “eye-rubbing” self-control, lol).
  
But since spring is pretty much upon us, I guess I need to start getting mentally prepared and embrace it once again.
  
TIP of the Week:  For allergy sufferers; experimenting with fun lips colors is a great way to add color to your look without focusing on your eyes. Corals, peachy and orange lips colors are on trend this spring. Below are some of my favorite coral, peachy, orange tone lipsticks and lipglosses.

Thinking of Pink Lips?

I wanted to share some of my favorite pink tone lipsticks and lipglosses.  I can never get enough of pink lips, so I had a difficult time narrowing down the list to six. Please feel free to add your favorites in the comment section.
 
For color reference, I did not use any lipliners or additional lip products, so you could see the real color payoff on my complexion (unless otherwise stated).

Shell Lipstick by Mary Kay

I added a bonus pink lipstick, just because I get so many questions about this particular color. It is the infamous MAC & Nicki Minaj collabo, Pink Friday Lipstick.  This lipstick is not one of my personal favorites, but you can make it work with a lipliner and a gloss on top of it. I usually pair Pink Friday lipstick with NYX Deep Purple lipliner and MAC Rags to Riches Dazzleglass.
