Your lips already have a gorgeous pinky rose shade to them already – I would probably stick with a shade close to your normal shade as an enhancer and that way it will look natural and fresh!

Ha!  I was so going to suggest “Twig” — it’s my FAVE!  Can you bring Twig and maybe a gloss and small mirror, and just reapply as needed?  (That’s what I did!)

Well, you’ll probably want a long-wearing lipstick.  I have pale skin, too, and darker hair, and found Loreal Infallible lipcolor in rosebud to be just the browny-pinkish shade I was looking for, a little more brown than the color in your first picture.

I tried many different things, including Mac’s long-wearing lipcolor.  The nice thing about the Loreal is that it lasts, and the gloss feels more like a lip balm, so you’re not sticky.  I didn’t like MAC’s gloss as much.

I like the lipstains that covergirl just came out with, they are outlast as well and stay on a long time but give you natural color 🙂

I use a sealant that I got from Sephora over my MAC lipstick and it works great.  I forget the brand but I’d check there.

Sealant.

I rarely use lipstick anymore.  But when I do, use a sealant on top.

My fave now is buxom lips gloss from bare escentuals.  Have it in 5 colors!  Wear it with a nude liner.

The way I look at it (like Bruschetta) is that I want to wear what looks best on me.  If it means in pictures I have to reapply it a few times to get the look I need, then great. 

How about saving the kissy pics till the end?

Try Revlon Colorstay Soft and Smooth in Pecan Pleasure.  It is a longwearing lipstick and the color looks similar to what you seem to prefer-I really like it and it’s actually a comfortable ‘longwearing’ lip color.

Since your hair is auburn (like me!) I would say a mauve/copperish color. Like not too pinky or red but something more copper looking. DOes that make sense? And that would alos match an ivory dress (not bright red or hot pink, something more mellow)

I just gos some stain/gloss from MAC that is pretty amazing – it’s a double ended tube – color on one side, clear gloss on the other. Loving it.

Look for glosses/lipsticks with “plum”, “wine”, or “mauve” in the title
