I chose MAC's "Wild 'Bout You" shade, a dark berry with a matte finish - limited edition from 2006. Obviously I don't follow the suggestions to throw out your makeup after certain time periods. How can I when it's not available anymore?
So here's the picture from 2 angles. One picture has the nice pink bathroom lighting, and for the other I color corrected it to get rid of the nice pink light, just to be brutally honest. It does seem to me like it dresses up my look a lot from a plain, no-lipstick face. I'm still self-conscious about the zits, big pores and blotchy red spots on my skin, though. For ease of comparison I put the first "no make-up" picture at the bottom.
|Lipstick only - no concealer, foundation, etc.|
|Lipstick only with harsh natural light|
|Bare face - nothing but a smile!|
