NAVIGATE

mark me the deepest

June 9, 2009

So, I tried red lipstick for the first time last week and was enamored by the outcome. I never thought I would be able to pull it off, but it was a nice change from the usual nude lip I always wear.


I totally ripped this out of a Nylon magazine a while back, but I wanted to show you guys the EXACT shade I wanted - figured bright red wasn't a great everyday color on me. After a trip to Sephora, I ended up with a deep-red-coral from Kat Von D (Heh, I know right? The Sephora girl swore by it, and I'm not one to say otherwise about makeup) in
Stiletto.



Wearing a skirt from Yaya Aflalo, Target sandals, and a blouse from Oliva's closet (she also has a bunch of pictures from Space 15 Twenty last weekend)

Sorry about the lack of outfit posts; I've been having camera issues lately, but hopefully that's all sorted out now!

Edit: A lot of people asked me what the song was at the beginning of my recent vlog. It's by my new favorite band, Ghostape, and it's called 'Turn Baby Turn'.

  2. it's fucking perfect.

  3. OMG! Im going to buy those sandals they are amazing. Your outfit is super cute.

  4. Hunting for the perfect shade of lipstick is probably the second hardest thing I'd have to in life. That coral looks great on you! I'm always iffy about people working at Sephora, or in any sort of place when they suggest something. I feel like they don't really know what they're suggesting. But at least you got one that actually knew!

  5. mMmm.. love me so red lipstick!
    this coral-y shade looks great on you! you should also try NARS lipstick sticks.. i use cruella and it goes on really smooth.
