It’s no secret that we have an affinity for Kerry Washington’s lips. As a matter of fact, we kinda, sorta said it a gazillion times. Unfortunately, not all of us hit the lotto in the gene pool category so that we have that perfect pout that Kerry has. For those of us who don’t, there is makeup. Thank God for makeup. So with a few steps (or less if you are a cheater), you can get a cute little pout like Kerry’s. Maybe you will nab an NFL star too.
For Fierce Friday, create a fun and flirty statement with your lip color by swapping out your standard full-coverage creamy lipstick and perk up your pout with a colorful lip tint. Highly moisturizing and feather-light, layer these shades together for a vibrant look.
