Leap Day Lipstick

The history of leap day is actually really interesting, leap years are added to the calendar to keep it working properly. The 365 days of the annual calendar are meant to match up with the solar year. A solar year is the time it takes the Earth to complete its orbit around the Sun — about one year. But the actual time it takes for the Earth to travel around the Sun is in fact a little longer than that—about 365 ¼ days (365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 46 seconds, to be precise). It may not seem like much of a difference, but after a few years those extra quarter days in the solar year begin to add up. After four years, for example, the four extra quarter days would make the calendar fall behind the solar year by about a day. Over the course of a century, the difference between the solar year and the calendar year would become 25 days! Instead of summer beginning in June, for example, it wouldn’t start until nearly a month later, in July.

I am loving Kate Bosworth’s lipstick in this picture, and since it is Leap Day, I thought we should all do something a little fun with our makeup! Lipstick is the easiest way to instantly change your look, because unlike eyeshadow you don’t have to worry about too much, or blending or being over the top. Bright fun lipsticks are very popular and perfect for Spring. This orangey color will look great on anyone with fair skin because it will accentuate some of the rosy undertones found in your skin! My pick for an orangey pout is Guerlain ‘KissKiss’ Lipstick in Orange Mambo.
