I'll certainly never be deemed a beauty blogger, seeing as my beauty regimen (if you can even call it that) is comprised solely of lipstick and mascara.  Some like to keep it neutral, but I say the brighter the better!  In honor of National Lipstick Day tomorrow, I wanted to share some of my very favorite shades that are universally flattering.  My current weekend go-to is a Laura Mercier shade, and for every day I swear by Pixi.  Thank you for shopping through my affiliate links that help keep this blog up and running.  Keep reading until the end to hear to how to score a FREE Mac lipstick (no strings!).

If you prefer to shop small, ABP make-up is for you!  Ashley Brooke Perryman has been Charleston Fashion Week's Make-Up Artist for years, and has her own line that I just love!  Check out "Girl Power Pink", shown below on different skin tones.


-Free Lipstick Alert!-

There is really no catch, you just need to get to a Mac store or retailer on Saturday July 29 (#NationalLipstickDay) and get one while the getting's good!  If you live in Charleston the only Mac retailer is Belk, which opens at 9:00 in Towne Center/Citadel Mall (Northwoods doesn't have a Mac Counter).  You'll only be able to pick from one of the specific colors they have available for this promotion, so it's not a bad idea to browse Mac.com to have some colors in mind first!

Happy Smooching, Y'all!
