Well. November has arrived with a soggy, soggy bang, hasn’t it? Hoo boy, that RAIN. Ok, we won’t go all Guns ‘n’ Roses on you, BUT you can really start to feel the move from fall into the next season (don’t worry, we won’t name it just yet) even while the temperatures stay relatively mild. We’re not frozen yet, but the dark, damp, dull days of November are most definitely upon us. Add to that the fact that we are setting the clocks back an hour this weekend, meaning it’s going to get dark a whole hour earlier, and that’s a recipe for the November doldrums. And of course it’s still a little early to be busting out the holiday decorations and festive cheer, so what do you do when you need a little pick me up?
Two words: Lipstick. Shopping.
November is grey, we can all agree on that, and what better way to add some colour than to find a new lippy to add to your repertoire!
We featured Aveda’s newest lipstick line Feed My Lips back in the spring/summer, and it’s worth revisiting now, especially with the added help of Global Artistic Director for Makeup Janell Gleason, breaking down the colours that are best for all skin tones!
The Living Aveda blog has all the details and you can read through her suggestions then head to Willow to test them out IRL.
Janell gives us the straight goods on determining your skin’s undertones (warm or cool) and how to figure that out. Then she talks trends, what’s hot for fall, and how perhaps the lipstick or gloss you wore all summer long just might not make the cut for fall.
It’s a great article with a lot of great information and it honestly couldn’t come at a better time. We need colour this time of year and lots of it! So whether you’re looking for something dramatic or something a bit more neutral, you’ll be able to find it in the Feed My Lips line, guaranteed.
Wishing you a lovely weekend, friends. Make time for the things you love when you can, and take time for yourself. The holidays are coming, and if we can get in the habit of me-time before they hit us with full force, the more likely we are to keep that momentum going. Let’s run with that.
