When it comes to weekend makeup, I always seem to gravitate towards a neutral lip and simple, lined eye. The pairing is easy and works flawlessly for daytime activities like taking my dog for a walk in the park, or grabbing coffee with a friend.

Today I decided to try something a little different for my Saturday afternoon: a red lip, winged liner, and a whole lot of gold, shimmery highlighter. Red lipstick is a powerful force of nature – somehow it makes mundane tasks, like a trip to the grocery store, a million times more fun.

 

NARS Heat Wave Semi-Matte Lipstick

NARS Heat Wave is definitely more of a bright, reddish orange that brightens my light complexion – but I think it’s a versatile shade that would compliment any skin tone. This semi-matte lipstick is a pure, creamy formula for long-lasting, full-bodied color. It can be drying, especially if it’s cold out (not here in San Francisco!), so I recommend prepping the lips with a sugar scrub and moisturizing lip balm.
