I love this look of Virginia Mayo. It’s all perfect. Love the hair, lipstick, and the tweed suit. I wish I could look this fabulous all of the time. It’s a bold lip that isn’t too bold. I think it is all very professional and beautiful. It also works for many complexions. Here’s what I did to recreate this look:
FACE: To even out complexion, I applied Shiseido Stick Foundation in o20 directly on my face. I blended with my Elizabeth Arden Foundation

Tempting is pretty nice and kind of boring except for the acidic pop of the green which I find so similar to the eye shadow Bitter. Bitter is one of my favorite eyeshadows. I miss it with Chrome Yellow… Continue reading
I love dark lips which led me to my good friend MAC Viva Glam III Lipstick. This shade is a matte and mute brownish plum. It is chock full of pigment and offers full coverage with a lovely matte finish. I admit that sometimes it is tricky. If you must wear lip balm under this color make sure it is applied evenly or this lipstick will apply very splotchy and make you look kind of like a pit bull.
