I occasionally play this Korean, MMO dancing game. …Okay I’ll stop that minor detail of my nerd dom dead in its tracks. There’s a song in one of the lesser-played modes that’s a remix of the very popular and famous tango song, Por Una Cabeza. Around that same time, the old movie “Scent of a Woman” popped onto my TV.

It may be a little late to jump onto the how-to-wear-orange-lipstick bandwagon. But I’ve decided to do so anyway!
Orange lips are (thankfully!) still on Fall trend. I love watching this look walk down the runway and the streets. It’s quirky, stylish and truly wearable. There’s a shade of orange out there for everyone! Here’s a few that I own…
