It’s Spring! I don’t think we can deny it. While some of the rest of the country is still battling snow and cold we are the fortunate few who get to go on their merry way without a thought to the weather… except of course when we start complaining as to how hot it is… silly us!
I for one have been more than excited to strap on a new or (old favorite) pair of sandals and short sleeves. And somehow when spring comes around it always seems like the right time add a few new pieces to the closet and the makeup bag. How about a few new lipstick shades to wash away the darkness of winter? Now is the time to add that optimistic pop of color in a pink, soft berry or orange shade.
I happen to catch this list on Refinery 29 of pretty little lipstick shades for the season. Take a look.
Karlie Kloss keeps it fresh and natural with a rosy-beige gloss that’s just a tad darker than her natural lip hue.
