What is your favorite beauty tip from your Mom?

My mom was always big on looking natural. Makeup was to enhance your beauty and not change your look. When I was young I wanted to paint myself with all the colors of the wind but now as I have grown up I appreciate her words so much more.

Would you wear temporary lip tatoos?

I saw this new product on Stylist, and at first I thought – that’s interesting, might be cute…. but I’d never do it. Maybe if I were 10 years younger (and had bigger lips?).

Violent Lips has released a line of Temporary Lip Tattoos. The wet-and-apply stick-on tattoos come in an array of styles, including leopard, rainbow and glitter.

I don’t know that this will find a huge audience outside of popstars and teenage girls, but I could be wrong.

These lip tattoos will run you $15 for a pack of three, so I guess it can’t hurt to try it out?
