Juneberry Beauty: New Year, New You!!

Ahhh, January...a girl could totally be filled with melancholy now that the holidays are over and the weather still hasn't warmed up yet.  But why be sad when the new year holds so much hope?

And why not kick things off with a little beauty inspiration to give yourself a fresh start and brighten up that gorgeous face of yours?  I came across this wonderful little article from Real Beauty a few months back about the perfect shade of lipstick.

The girls from Real Beauty promised that these shades of lip color were flattering on EVERYONE, no matter what your race, skin tone, age, or hair color.   I decided to head out to the make-up shop to really test the theory and I have to say, they were completely right on.  I even made my mom try out the berry shade and she said she started receiving compliments the very first night she wore it! So I absolutely had to share it with you!

Whether you are looking for the perfect pink or the most stunning shade of red, you won't be disappointed.  So no more buying colors you hate once you are home or testing out the samples at the store!  Check it out . . .
