A hotel I stayed at during a recent business trip couldn’t help me replace the make-up I left at home but was well-stocked for horny convention attendees.

Thanks for nothing, jerks.

Is this OK?

My mother told me it’s OK to refresh your lipstick in public.

But no more than that. Everything else – mascara, concealer, eyeliner – should be saved for the restroom.

I winced each time the subway jostled this lady while she had pointy things by her eyes.

Nude lips

It works for some. Great examples here via ImNotBarbie and below.

 

Not for all. Sadly, I’m in the Not camp. Without lip color, I look like a cadaver.

I asked makeup pro Raychel Wade for insights.

“I love a nude lip!  Personally it’s my favorite look.  And if fact, often times it can make you look more youthful.  I know that some people feel like a corpse with it on, so here’s a trick.  Pull your bottom lip out and match a lipstick the inside skin color of your lip.  Weird, I know.  But if you feel too pale in a true nude this will give you a close, natural option!”
I need to try this.  If you do, let me know in the comments how it goes.
