  1. i think it’s great. exactly a look I would like for myself, but I didn’t know how to do it. now i do. thanks, Phyllis!

  2. wow, thats hot ! How about bronze up the face to give the orange lips a “POP” ?
    BTW, I like the new shape of your brows !

  3. This is HOT! I tend to stay away from orange lipsticks just because it accentuates the yellowness of my teeth… and I am too lazy to use any whitening products… lol

  4. I’m reading Mulvey’s Decades of Beauty for fun and it says that in the 1930’s an heiress named Barbara Hutton wore black nail polish, orange lipstick, and green eye shadow together. This was considered chic back then. I was wondering with the popularity of orange lipstick this summer if there was any way of wearing these elements without looking like a disaster.
