Bobbi Brown Burnt Red Lipstick

This holiday season, I've been looking for the perfect red to wear with all my Christmas inspired outfits.  Tis the season for all the holiday parties and for looking 'festive'.  I came across Bobbi Brown's Burnt Red a few weeks ago - I was 'hooked' from day one.  It's become one my favourite reds and I think it's going to be my Chistmas/Holiday colour:

The one thing that I really, really love about this red, is that its not a typical true red, yet it's bright, elegant and goes with so many colours.  I would call this shade the 'perfect brick red'!  Since I went with a brighter orange red top, I decided to play up the warm orange/amber shades.  I started with MAC Peaches blush and also applied this shade to my eyes as a shadow and used Amber Lights just on the lid before applying some mascara.  I used a brown mascara, the Brun shade from Lancome.  Finally, the Burnt Red by Bobbi Brown!!!  Voila - elegant burnt/brick red!

I have been following your blog off and on for a while now. Recently, I was thinking about applying to be a flight attendant. I may be remembering this wrong, but are you/have you been a flight attendant? If so, I have some questions I'd like to ask you.

Hi Anonymous - no, I have never been a flight attendant, but I wish you luck as you pursue that career!
