Like many ladies I rarely wear red lipstick during the day. But when I do I actually like the shade of red on my lips. I’ve played with different textures but I seem to like matte, satin high shine lipsticks.
Being that it’s fall I was inspired by all the beautiful fall leaves and the gorgeous red Japanese maple tree in front of my home that I decided to rock a cherry bomb lip.
Here are 5 of my favorite lipsticks this season. Let’s see if one of your favorites made my list.
1 .NARS Lipstick in Red Lizard (semi matte full powered red) $26.00
2. Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Berry (shine of a gloss berry red) $21.00
3. Bobbi Brown Limited Edition Lip Color in Sultry Red (soft matte bright blue red) $26.00
4. Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Cranberry (matte lip color deep red) $24.00
5.Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture SPF15 in Le Rouge (satin finish blood red) $35.00

One of the most asked questions I hear every day is how to maintain a matte look.
Combination and Oily skin makeup wearers have the hardest time when it comes to wearing makeup. Within 20 mins from washing your face you notice your skin looks really dewy, and you overload your face with powder to keep the matte look. Trust me, I understand your dilemma when working long days and traveling from state to state.
Here are a few makeup items that can help you keep that matte look throughout the day.
M.A.C. Cosmetics Blot Powder: Make sure you always press it on because wiping will remove the foundation. Take the puff and turn it upside down that way you don’t add bacteria into the product. $21.00 http://www.maccosmetics.com
Smash box Anti-Shine Powder Gel: Before foundation, use this item on your T-zone. It also works well if you place it around your lip line to hold your lipstick color. $27.00 http://www.sephora.com
Cargo High Defintion Mattifier: It’s great for someone with very oily skin and enlarged pores. Gives instant gratification. Works well as a primer before applying foundation. $24.00 http://www.sephora.com
YSL Matt Touch Foundation: This is a great item because it really leaves the skin matte but not dull or dry looking. $48.00 http://www.yslbeautyus.com
