Kiss and Makeup

I have two current makeup obsessions: grey nailpolish and RED lipstick! In this insane heatwave we've been having I haven't been wearing a whole lot of makeup due to the melting factor. However, some Benefit Dallas bronzer, some Bad Gal black mascara, LOTS of Bo-ing concealer to hide the evidence of tossing and turning {even with central air it's not easy!} and then the va-va-va-voom factor on the lips and voila! A not too insane-looking Kaili for work.

The hair however? A completely different story. If anyone has tips on how to manage curly hair in the heat, I'd love to hear it. I will bake you cookies if it works for me! Good ones too...

The lips are a great shade of red called "Gabrielle" by Chanel. To me, nothing says red lipstick like Coco Chanel so I headed straight there. It's pretty universally flattering.

CHANEL Rouge Lipstick - Gabrielle
On the nails, Chanel's particulière nailpolish. It goes with everything, looks very good on fingers and toes. I'm really picky about colours of nailpolish on my fingernails, and I have not gotten sick of this one yet.

I have tried everywhere to get a bottle of that gorgeous nail polish. I have had no luck. That lipcolour looks gorgeous.
I wish I had some help for you with the hair issue. I have nothing. I did the Brazilian blow dry as a way of dealing with my wild mane. It was the best thing I have ever done for my hair.

This Fall my favorite lipstick is the MAC Pro Lipstick, with my bomber jacket girl.
