Going Nude

My BFF, Joanie did a recnt post on nude lips.  (check it out here.  if you're a foodie, you'll love her blog too!)  So, I gave it a shot tonight and don't think it's suits me.  I could also be applying it wrong or using the wrong "nude" color (hmmmm does "nude" have a color??).  I don't know, what do you guys think??

My facial expression clearly shows how I feel about my lip adventure.. eh!

Okay, this is more like me.. Smiley Smiley.  I did a quick curl through mylocks and pinned my bangs to see if I should possibly grow them out.  Is it me or is there just way too much forehead in these pictures!?! 

I picked up this dress last year and haven't worn it out yet.  I just threw it on real quick to take these pics.  I hope to wear it out soon because it's so great for spring.  And yes Joanie, I'm aware that Hawaii, doesn't have "distinct" seasons, but in my mind it does!! Hee hee

Love, S

I love nude lipstick. i love wearing mine when i either do some kind of dark smokey eye makeup or wear very bright/colourful eye shadows.... u get what i mean, when u want all the attention to focus on ur eye makeup only! otherwise wearing it on its own, i think it just washes out ur face esp on asians/fair skin!

ps: lovely dress... adore the colourful print!

Diane said...

you look adorable...and at the same time totally different with nude lips and no bangs! but still cute as a button. and that dress is so fab! i want it!!!

Michelle said...

awww i love your hair, you look great with no bangs too! you should play with pinning them away more often and then see if you like it!
I think you can pull off the nude lips! maybe more playful eyes might help?
and I LOVE your silky floral dress. how appropriate for the spring!


Joanie said...

i've fallen in love with nude lips. do something dramatic with your eyes, and you will too! so cute that you linked me. i can't wait for my bangs to grow back. i've never been too adventurous with my hairstyles, and i'm ready to go back to my plain do. it's different to see you with yours pinned back, but you look beautiful with any style. :) chit chat later. call me!

I love the dress/top!! I don't know if I am a fan of nude lips though! I think if you did darker eyes it would balance out though!! Your hair looks good pinned up too!

DiamondsandTulle said...

Love that dress! Wow - I think without the bangs is cute too but such a difference _ I wasn't sure it was you! :) I think either way is cute and I love the curls!

I think if you do nude lips you have to do something with your eyes to balance it out otherwise you just end up looking really plain - they definately suit you though! As do having no bangs!
Lovely dress too :)

Annie said...

I love seasons! It's one of the only things I like about living in the midwest. I'm glad that people in warmer climates still celebrate springtime with springy clothes :)

Oh, Sharon, you look gorgeous! You do look very different than with your bangs and non-nude lips (also gorgeousness ;)), but it's so fun that you can change you look so dramatically. Also, speaking as a girl with a huge forehead and no bangs, I don't think you have too much there at all ;)

ps- I can't wait to see how you where your Gaultier for Target dress! I really wanted the yellow poufy dress too! I'm hoping it goes on sale so I don't hurt my credit card as much.

You are so adorable! You can do both looks, its such a different look, and the fact that you are so beautiful you can totally go nude! love it!

jozen said...

My lips are always a pinkish nude color because I like to play up my eyes. You just have to get used to it. ;)

p.s. I'm thinking about growing my bangs out too. I'm in the middle of the process. We'll see what happens.

It looks cute, but I really LOVE you with bangs! :)

That dress is awesome on you! I agree with a few of the commentors. I think it would help if you did something dramatic to your eyes too!
