Beauty: The Lipstick Diaries, Volume I

While it may have taken over 20 years in the making, I am proud to be able to say that I... finally have a signature look! Melodramatic text aside, it's true, I am finally able to pinpoint exactly what makes my look, me. Gisele will her sexy beach waves and Anna Wintour will always be sporting her pageboy bob, I will forever be reaching towards my collection of bright-coloured lipsticks. Yes, the one beauty look that has never let me down is the bold lips.

Despite being proven as a man-repeller, the bold lip finish has been my glam-armor for many years now. When I'm too lazy to touch-up my whole face, I just reach for a super-bright red to get me through the rest of the evening. Or, if I'm feeling creative and funky, I reach for something more daring  like a deep plum purple. While it's a Sophie's Choice of a decision for me to pick my favorite lipstick, I did manage to narrow it down to my four favorite shades of the moment. Check them out!  Xo, Laurie
