I love being inspired by the things I see. Whenever I do see something that I like, I put it in something I call my Look Book (I’ll be doing a separate post about it very soon for those of you who are interested :) For this post I am going to talk about beautiful model Gia Johnson-Singh, who inspired me in the Tia Maria commercial.

I think she looked absolutely stunning in that advertisement, but I especially like the lipstick she wore. I was determined to find my own version of this kind of color and I have found something that I am quite happy with.
The lipstick I am talking about is by Estee Lauder and is called “Tiger Eye”. I’ve had it in my storage drawer for so long because I was not a fan of the color in the tube (I never actually wore it). Recently, however, I went through some of my products hidden in that drawer and decided to swatch the color. To my surprise, it was not what I expected to see. In fact it was a beautiful shimmery, coppery-peach shade; my perfect comparison for replicating Gia’s lipstick.

I think this color is perfect for the summer because it alone, warms up your face without having to wear bronzer. The color has a bronze undertone that gives you a sun-kissed glow. I absolutely love it! So I guess this is another one of those times when you learn something new: Don’t judge a lipstick by its …tube color? LOL
What’s your summertime pick for lipstick?
