Detail of the Week







A Rouge pout. I've always wanted to be able to wear some dazzling, rich, red lipstick. However, sadly, many redheads cannot wear red well, though, perhaps given a little guidance on the right shade, I might venture into new territory! I'm loving the first outfit especially...such a romantic look in black and white, with her red lips as the focal point. Would you try a bold red pout this Christmas? For tips and tricks, click here.

If you find you're craving a little fresh, new makeup for Christmas, I have a little secret...the best source for product reviews (that I've found to date) – Makeup Alley. Product Reviews? – 1,517,493, with reviews of over 107,127 products! It can't get any better than that! I find that I often will read through a few reviews before purchasing a seemingly great product, especially those that are new to the market. So scoot over and become a member (it's free) to read about honest reviews from professionals to teens, worldwide!

  2. Maybe time to get my red lipstick out again? Redheads (my son is one) don't need red to get any attention, they always stand out in the crowd by hair colour and personality (not that he wears lipstick!). Have a wonderful, wonderful holiday Sarah (full of fun).

  3. I too had discovered makeup alley and LOVE it!

    I can't figure out how models with pale skin (like mine, for example) don't look scary with pale skin and red lips but I look hmm.... horrendous.

  4. I finally found some skinny black pants to tuck into my boots (just like the ones in the picture) at Target for $10.00!!! Got boots from Kmart for $15.00!!! Can't wait to wear them out!

  5. I've never really been able to pull off red lipstick myself -- too harsh against my very pale skin...but maybe I too just haven't found the right shade?

    And thanks for the tip about Makeup Alley!

  6. I think red would suit you so well Sarah, just given the perfect shade for your skin tone :) I have 2 red lipsticks, my favourite is this revlon matte one called "strawberry suede". I'm still trying to find my perfect shade, but my mom always makes fun of me when I wear it and it makes me self-conscious :(
    I should bring the two that I have so you can test them out :)

  7. Esther, you are a darling! Sounds like a plan! I'm dying to give your a few presents -- perhaps you can come over for some hot chocolate?

  9. Yay! The detail of the week is here!!!! I was looking at the pictures trying to find the connection before I read your text and I got it! The red lipstick. I love it. My lips are a bit thin for such a dramatic color but it sure looks fabulous on lush lips. Thanks for the make-up place tip. I'm always looking for new sources.
