After watching the Golden Globes this past Sunday and noticing the increasing number of light lips that accompanied the makeup looks – from dark eye to cat eye to bare eye – I became slightly obsessed with the idea of a winter filled with lovely nudes, pale pinks and mauves. While I’m still a major fan of a bold lip (love a nice fuchsia) and a bright red pout, it’s the fair lip that has me inspired this week (and from what we saw on the runways for S/S 2012, the pale lip is sizing up to be the trend du jour).

    I found myself leaving behind my red products after a no-show on winter here in the midwest. The lack of snow & warm weather caused me to feel ridiculous in my reds even if the calendar shows January. I switched to beiges, mauves, and pale pinks because it just feels like spring here already.
