My Favorite Affordable Lipsticks For Any Season and Occasion

Hey everyone and happy Memorial Day! Before I get to the main topic of this post, I just want to say I hope you’re all enjoying your day, but also keep in mind why today is a holiday to begin with. It’s because of all of those who have lost their lives for our freedom. As a military brat, I’ve seen and heard it all when it comes to wounded soldiers and soldiers not making it home to their families. People risk their lives everyday for our freedom, and many people lose their lives for it. I’m so lucky and grateful that my daddy put on a uniform everyday for 26 years, and always made it back home to us safely!

The post I have today is my first beauty related video. I am very into lipstick, but it can be challenging to find the perfect lipstick for my skin tone. Since I am darker, a lot of shades just don’t compliment me well. Some people are fearless and will wear any color confidently, but I’m not like that [yet]. I tend to stick to darker shades, no matter what the season. Since Memorial Day weekend is seen as sort of the beginning of summer, makeup lovers around the world are transitioning their makeup looks to fit summer. I, on the other hand, tend to stick with what I’m most comfortable with. I picked five of my favorite lipsticks that I wear most often, compliment my skin tone, and for the most part, can be worn year round, even with summer coming up.

I hope you enjoy this video, and I hope it gives you an idea of “acceptable” lip colors that you can still wear during the upcoming summer months!
