Happy New Year & Lipstick Lowdown #3

Happy 2011 everyone! I was absent from the blogosphere for the last couple of weeks during the holidays. I had a lot of fun and I hope all of your holidays were fabulous & that 2011 will be an amazing year for us all!

Now to my second bit of blog business. Today is January 4th! Do you know what that means?!?! It's my birthday tomorrow! Do you know what else?!? It's exactly THREE months until the official release of The Lipstick Laws! Yay! To celebrate & help me count down, I'm posting about all things lipstick on the fourth of every month up until April. For today's post, I've found this lipstick tutorial. I know, I know... you wouldn't think you'd need a tutorial to put on lipstick correctly...but apparently applying red lipstick is more difficult than one might think. Check out these tutorial tips:

Not quite sure why this lady says she has blue in her skin?? Perhaps she's part smurf? Regardless, I think it's a pretty good tutorial. Although I should confess that I'm more of a lip gloss girl. If you read The Lipstick Laws, you may shy away from red lipstick as well.

I hope you'll come back next month for Lipstick Lowdown #4!

I love that tutorial! I've never been good at putting on lipstick--definitely more of a lip gloss girl myself :)

Too funny! Well, if I ever where red lipstick, which is doubtful (I'm a gloss-girl, too!), I'll keep these steps in mind. I've already pre-ordered my copy of The Lipstick Laws, so counting down with you will be extra fun. Can't wait to read it!

Happy New Year, and happy (almost) birthday!

I'm sorry I missed your birthday. Here's a belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I have a feeling those three months are going to fly by! :)

Belated Happy Birthday to you, Amy! I'm so excited for your book! I hope the months fly by.

I don't get the "blue" thing either. When I had a makeover, the make-up artist told me that I had blue undertones. It was supposed to guide me towards certain colors and away from others. I love that tutorial. It's so fun to get to dress up and wear real lipstick. Most of the days I'm in the classroom and just throw on some gloss!
