Yes, I did have to toss a few things away as more and more of my silver hair came through. Mostly eye makeup though, brown eyeshadow and gold highlighters, for example. But your natural silver is such a personal thing, there is just no way to know what will really suit you until you get out there and try. So in this post, I am showcasing some of my lipsticks that "made the cut", so to speak.
I do however, hasten to add that I perhaps chose the worst possible time to decide to do this blog post, having just returned from a tropical vacation with a tan that puts me a few shades past my natural skin colour, and having just stepped off the tennis court (frizz bomb hair). Think of it like reality TV, with less sleeping around and (I like to think) a higher IQ...even if it is lipstick we're talking about. So these are some of my go-to's. Yours will be different. I am a medium to olive-complexion with salt and pepper streaks. You are....well.....you.
So I started with a "clean slate" for this post. No fancy-schmancy eyeshadow, crazy brows, or anything like that, just a little foundation and powder to even things out so that you can see the lipcolor better. Or in the case of this photo, the control group, no lipcolor at all....clear gloss. Here's the canvas.
Okay, lipstick numero uno....one of the best everyday lipcolors out there, in my opinion.

Just like lips, only better. I wear this one nearly every day when I am working. I reckon just about anyone could wear this. See how it still looks natural, just "bumped-up" a bit?
So that's it! Granted, these are not the only lipsticks in my drawer (put-lease! product junkie here!) But they are representative of how I trend in my lipstick universe. And if there was ever a "safe" splurge, lipstick is it! You don't have to go top of the line to experiment, and a lot of the drugstore brands are really quite good these days. So get out there and schmear it on, gals! The process if fun!
