Update your spring wardrobe for under $1!!!!

Fuchsia lipstick!! Mine is wet and wild and it costs 99 cents...you can find various brands and shades in your local drugstore or wal-mart. Swipe a little of this stuff on and it instantly brings a little spring into your look. My mother visited this weekend and I used the opportunity to test some out on her as well...when I offered to do her makeup and then pulled this out at the end at first I think she thought I was crazy...but I think she liked it too! It looks good on everybody! When you wear such a shocking shade on your lips, it's important to keep the rest of your face neutral. I am going to give you an example of a good way to pair neutral eye makeup with a fuchsia lip shade.

This is my Ma sans makeup...so you can get an idea of how much we ended up using on the eyes.
Ok, so first we want to use foundation to even out skin tone, followed by translucent powder to set the face. Then, I dusted a brown-gold bronzer under her cheekbones. Before adding any eyeshadow, I traced her upper lash line with a chocolate eye pencil, making sure to smudge it into her lashes to give a fuller lash effect. Then I used some light gold/beige shadow to highlight the inner corners of her eyes and along her browbone. I then applied a warm brown shadow all across her lid and up into her crease. And finished with mascara. This was the finished product.
But, add a little bit of fuchsia lipstick and...


 Adds flair to a plain black shirt...like an accessory of it's own!!
This is the lipstick that I used...wet and wild shade 511B. It cost me 99 cents, and is actually very smooth and creamy. There are lots of other brands out there at various price ranges, but I highly recommend this one!
