Read my lips

Someone once told me that you can pretty much guess a woman’s personality based on the color of her lipstick.

Accordingly, if she’s wearing red, it suggests that she’s wild and aggressive. If her lips are pink, you could tell she’s extremely girly. They say brown hues are for some serious workaholics while black is obviously for those who love gothic. Wearing lip gloss alone is for the girl who’s still on the stage of puberty, and wearing nothing at all is for, uhm, the plain Jane.

If you ask me, I don’t really know about these stereotypes. But I sure am certain of one thing: Whoever said this, she does not understand that a girl needs more than just one color in her makeup box.

I’m not a pro when it comes to applying makeup. I don’t use five different kinds of brushes on my face whenever I sit in front of the mirror to prepare for a date. When choosing the right color of lipstick to wear for a certain occasion, I normally just trust my guts.

But really, why settle for one when you can have all the shades for yourself?

Red lipstick saves me a lot of time when I’m feeling too lazy to even sprinkle blush on my cheeks. It instantly pumps up color on my face. I don’t know if I’m a little biased with the color, but I really think it goes rather too well with any outfit. Just be light on the eye color if you plan to put on any.

Orange and bronzed colors are the best during summer. At least for me, I guess. It’s my ultimate bud as a beach bum, lying around the fine sands of Boracay with a sun-kissed glow. Don’t forget sunscreen, please.

A nude-colored lipstick to me looks very formal and corporate, though it’s actually one of my favorites. The secret, I think, is to have strong eyes to complement the look. Hint: Mascara and eye liner.

You could probably guess that I’m not much into pink. But while I have my doubts whether or not it looks flattering on me, I must admit it’s the safest color when you’re feeling too feminine and you want to achieve the innocent effect.

Whether you’re aiming for a sweet Barbie doll image or for that hot chick look who’s ready to party, the options are just endless. This era is where Mac, Shu Uemura, Nars, Chanel, and many others take the lead in order to paint bursting colors in this fashion crazy world.

It’s time to get those puckers to do the talking! ;)
