Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lip Color’Ink – Love this long lasting natural looking color that lasts without drying out my lips. My perfect shade is L111 Flawless, a neutral beigy nude. With well done up eyes and a few coats of rich glossy black mascara, it’s a good look. And did I mention that it smells light and kind of fruity… For night time or on camera, I go with YSL Rouge Pur Couture. It’s a luxurious silky texture, the shades are pretty fabulous and it glides on beautifully, no lip liner needed.
How am I supposed to pick just one?!?!? For a daytime, I love Charlotte Tilbury’s “Bitch Perfect,” which is literally the only nude that works with my skin tone.

And in case you haven’t heard, this is the year of bold, brazen color, all inspired by a tropical and retro fashion trend, according to a recent Wall Street Journal article.
