Mightiest Maraschino

I've said before that I'm not a huge fan of lipstick, so more often then not I'm rocking my natural lip color with just a hint of sheen from my handy-dandy lip balm. Occasionally, though, I like adding a pop of color to spice things up a bit. Pictured here I'm wearing Clinique's Chubby Stick Lip Colour in Mightiest Maraschino, a highly pigmented, gorgeous red color. I could go on and on about how much I love Clinique's Chubby Sticks; they're not only incredibly pigmented but also are genuinely moisturizing.Since I decided to go with a bold lip color, I went fairly neutral with the rest of my face. As much as I love and obsess over make-up, I actually far prefer a more simple, low-maintenance look for everyday wear.

While I usually wear a lighter base, here I'm wearing Laura Mercier's amazing Silk Creme Foundation. I wear the shade Cream Ivory, which is the absolute perfect match for my skin. I'll do a more detailed review on the product soon, because I truly cannot stress enough how amazing it is! I loathe heavy foundations, so I usually stay far, far away from anything that categorizes itself as full coverage. However, Silk Creme some how manages to cover any and all flaws while leaving your skin with a natural, dewy finish! Even better, it doesn't cling to any dry patches of skin, but instead glides over them to create a flawless finish. I've been reaching for this guy more and more lately, and while I will probably switch over to Tinted Moisturizer again once the weather gets warmer, I can safely say this is my HG foundation during the colder months.
