Makeup Monday: The Lipstick Guide for Every Event

As a girl who has over 50 tubes of lipstick, I know that the struggle is real when it comes to picking the right color. As crazy as it seems, this can be very stressful!

We don’t want to choose a lipstick that’s too bold, too wild, or too subtle. We also know the struggle of trying five different lipsticks and getting raw lips from wiping off each color, leaving vibrant traces of each shade.

But, feel free to wipe those worries away. GC has you covered with shades from ColourPop for each special holiday, event and date.

Valentine’s Day/Fourth of July – Creeper

This blue-toned, “classic” red lipstick will leave your lips looking vibrant and your teeth brighter than the sun. The ravishing red will have you looking romantic or festive, depending on the event.
