Have you ever had the notion that finding the perfect lip shades could hack your life?
I’m starting with lipstick then I want to figure out the hair, uniform and everything else I need to figure out to make my life simpler which for me makes life better.
As a minimalist, I want to find the 4 perfect lipstick shades that suit me. These would be my best shades for #1 NUDE (everyday), #2 (power) WORK, #3 (glam) EVENING, # 4 (fun) HOLIDAY.
Once established, this system would save me time, money and space.

DO YOU HAVE BETTER RECOMMENDATIONS OR DUPES?
