What Your Favorite Lipstick Shade Says About Your Personality

Each lipstick packs a punch and makes a statement. With so many colors to choose from, sometimes the problem is figuring out what that lipstick color suggests.

There are so many colors and shades of lipsticks that it’s hard to choose which one to wear. However, the most popular color tones that almost every woman has in her lipstick arsenal have certain meanings.

Sometimes it’s hard to choose a color because of your outfit, but sometimes it’s hard because of the message you are trying to convey.

Of course, personality comes into play with color choice. In most cases, your go-to color is the color that represents you best.

Brown shades


These shades are very natural and not too bright. They are generally preferred by women who are dependable, down-to-earth, warm, comfortable, relaxed and calm. Some would say that those who are drawn to these tones see the good in everything and don’t get worked up easily.

Wearing a toned-down color can also hint at a shy personality because you remain neutral with these shades. These shades are great to wear with a statement outfit when you don’t want to have overly bright lips that clash, or in the workplace where hot pink is less suitable.

Orange shades

Orange is a fun, exciting, intriguing and creative color that tells people you are adventurous, warm, kind, light-hearted and always smiling. This color makes a bold statement; it shows that you are confident in whom you are, and are always willing to put yourself out there no matter the challenge.

Orange is a popular trend this year and goes with many trending outfits.

As orange fades to peach tones, the meaning changes. It is similar to orange, but peach is more toned down. It is still warm, fun, light and warm-hearted, but not as wild and out there as bright orange.

Pink shades


As spring approaches, a variety of shades of pink are emerging and becoming very popular. Whether it’s a shade that’s barely there or a bright hot pink, you are bound to make a statement.

Pink, regardless of the shade, is a color that is still predominantly associated with women, so any shade suggests a sense of innocence, girlishness and fun.

Pink is great for various outfits. Light shades have a calmer, lighter quality that suggests a more relaxed yet happy and fun personality. It isn’t bold, but it’s certainly feminine and provides a great pop of color.

Light shades of pink make a person seem more tender and loving. In comparison, brighter pinks are generally associated with big and loud personalities; they tend to signal constant and guaranteed fun like orange.

Those who are drawn to bright pink tend to be outgoing, sociable and bubbly. Regardless of the shade, pinks are very floral and look amazing with most outfits.

Purple shades


Berries, purples, violets, plums—all have been a big hit for the last few seasons and are still going strong. Both dark and light tones match dozens of outfits, and are even becoming very popular nail polish colors.

The darker the color, the more regal a person looks. No matter how dark or light the shade, purples are also perceived to be very romantic.

Wearing berry colors, which tend to be deep and lush, not too dark but not also too bright, make you look strong, independent, reliable and powerful, yet still feminine. This color goes with so many outfits and is very regal, romantic, sophisticated, but also dangerously sexy.

Wearing these tones could make people think you are a risk taker and spontaneous.

Lighter tones of purples and mauve are also romantic, but make the wearer appear less mysterious, intense and passionate compared to darker berry tones. These shades are just as trendy though, and similar to light pink lipsticks.

They are perceived to be fun, girly, light and warm-hearted. They will make you feel very flowery, and suit spring outfits beautifully.

Red shades


Sexy, dramatic, passionate, fierce, strong, loving, regal: these are just some of the qualities conveyed by the boldness of red lipstick. Red lipstick can tell people a lot about your personality before they even talk to you.

Personally, this is my favorite color to wear as it is a color of power and expresses so much feeling and emotion. This color not only makes a statement, but also shows that you are confident, proud, fun and exciting.

The color you wear doesn’t define you or mean that you are everything it suggests. These are just traits that are commonly associated with these particular shades, and the messages conveyed to others through your choice of lipstick.

All of the colors mentioned here are on trend and versatile in the outfits they accompany. The most important thing is to ensure that the lipstick color you choose to wear makes you happy and conveys what you want it to convey. If you have any great lipstick finds, feel free to share them below!

7 Healthy and Easy to Prepare Salads for Weight Loss

Are you tired of cookies and fudge yet? Is your body screaming for some vegetables? Here are 7 healthy and easy to prepare salads for weight loss that will have you feeling your best!

#1 Greek Salad

A Greek salad has all the wonderful vitamins you need, and some mouth watering flavor as well! Plus, it’s easy to make. You will need: Romaine lettuce, 1 sliced onion, 5 Greek olives, a chopped tomato, a sliced cucumber, crumbled Feta, 5 banana peppers, a dash of Oregano, and a dash of black pepper.

All you have to do is mix it all together and put a squirt of lemon juice on top. You can even use lemon juice from the plastic bottle. If you have Greek dressing, go ahead and top it on your salad.

#2 Strawberry Chicken Salad


Strawberry chicken salad has a few things to keep your sweet tooth in check (while allowing your jeans some breathing room). The ingredients are simple: 7 strawberries sliced lengthwise, a bag of mixed lettuce, a few ounces of cubed already cooked chicken, some pecans or almonds, and a dash of vinaigrette.

Mix all of the ingredients together and serve with a side of blueberries. Also, this recipe is excellent if you have some leftover chicken from dinner last night!

#3 Eggplant Salad

Eggplant is one of the tastiest vegetables out there. I love sliced eggplant fried in oil, eggplant parmesan, and now I love eggplant salad. You’re going to need: 1 Eggplant, 1 large tomato, a little Basil, and some olive oil.

For eggplant salad, unlike the others so far, you have to do a little cooking. Usually people slice the eggplant in quarters and fry it (or bake it) in a little olive oil.

I suggest grilling your eggplant if you can (it tastes so much better). Once you’ve cooked your eggplant slices, simply lay them on a plate (over some pita bread if you like), add a few sliced tomatoes and then drizzle with olive oil. Top it with Basil for some added flavor!

#4 Moroccan Olive Salad

Moroccan Olive Salad is probably the easiest salad of them all. You have four ingredients: Moroccan olives (which you can get at your local grocery store), cubed watermelon, Feta cheese, and Mint.

Mix all of the ingredients together and serve. You can substitute the Feta cheese for thick Mozzarella cheese, which adds a wonderfully unique taste!

#5 Cucumber Tomato Salad


I can’t tell you how much of this salad I’ve eaten in my lifetime, but I can tell you that it’s been a lot! My ex husband was Arab and this was his favorite side dish to make whenever he cooked dinner (I have to admit, I purposely burnt dinner when it was my turn to cook so that he would do the cooking more often).

This salad is amazing. All you need are cucumbers, tomatoes, Parsley, and lemon juice. Purchase the small cucumbers (they usually come four in a package) and cube them, add them to a bowl of cubed tomato, squirt some lemon juice on top (the plastic kind is still good), and then sprinkle with fresh Parsley. You’ll love it.

#6 Garlic Shrimp Salad
