Show 'Em Some Class

It's the most wonderful time of the year...but it would be nice if I didn't have to wear an enormous coat every day.  Just keeping it real. Happy holidays!

Anyhoo, Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas to all my readers and rock on. Many of you are celebrating the holidays and I hope none of you are stressing out about it. I realize though that the age old question arises, what shall I wear that will be appropriate for the holidays? Lately, my blog has been touting bright pink lipstick and I encourage you to continue your journey of self-expression through makeup, fashion, reading and having fun with friends.

Still, I was thinking that if you are dating someone and meeting the parents for the first time at a holiday event, it might be appropriate to retire makeup shades that can be seen from a mile away (electric pink lipstick! neon blue eyeshadow!) and opt for classier shades.

My "appropriate" makeup solution: Wear Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick in La Raffine. It's so Park Avenue, it makes me forget I live in Brooklyn.  There's never a second chance for a first impression.

SKINCARE REMINDER: Also, don't forget to moisturize, moisturize, moisturize and wear sunblock. This weather does horrors to the skin and I see dry, dead-looking faces all over the subway trains. Don't join the zombie crew. My model friend is in love with the Kiehl's Rose Arctica Cream and I might pick up a pot of this too.

Yes indeed, you can never go wrong with the classic red lip.
