Rediscovering Gold Lipstick

Ask any of my friends about my signature makeup look, and they’ll tell you that I love a bold lip–either red or purple–it doesn’t matter as long as it’s noticeable.

The beauty industry is all about developing products and then creating a demand for said products — which actually means they convince us that we really, really, really need those creams, salves, and washes or we’ll turn ugly!
