Two weeks ago, the Susan G. Komen foundation invited me to their Impact Awards. At this super-inspiring luncheon, they awarded women who’ve impacted the fight against breast cancer. Being surrounded by elite philanthropists, the ladies-who-lunch crowd and GMA’s Amy Robach, I definitely had a moment of, “Are you sure you invited the right person?” But at least I was prepped, style-wise. My ensemble was conservative, yet stylish (i.e., a sleeveless, soft chambray denim number with a swing skirt). But my makeup? Disaster. I went for a major lashes and shadow moment, but I ended up ugly-crying the entire time (those stories and videos KILLED me). Fast forward to last week — I saw the event pics, and my eyes were a scorching hot mess. I decided to take a break from strong eyes, and focus on statement lips instead. It looks pulled together, and its easy to fix if I eat a burger or feeling a pressing need to make-out.
My secret to a perfect, bold pout is Urban Beauty United Lippety Stick Lip Brush. It’s compact, I love the bright bristles, and it allows me to perfectly line the bow of my life. My lip color of choice? Milani’s Sweet Nectar. This orange — and my crimped hair — are my way of giving “my body is here at work with all of you, but my heart is on vacation” vibes. With Beyonce. On her yacht. With my pimple.
