National Lipstick Day

Sadly, I can’t seem to find a lipstick that works on me. Actually, I do like a subtle nude color but I mean I can’t find an orange, red, berry or pink that works. I always feel clownish. My son and husband don’t like when I wear it either because it leaves smooch marks on them. I love the way lipstick looks on others though and I especially love painting it in watercolor. Here’s a flashback to when I used it to hand-letter this special cover for Vogue Nippon. And here’s another flashback illustration featuring lips I posted to Instagram.
