BEAUTY BAR: All About That Lip

Winter is the perfect time of year to rock a vampy lip. Bold lip colors can help brighten your mood during the dreary winter days. This Fashionista definitely mastered the edgy style by focusing her look around her bold beauty. Her easygoing outfit and minimal accessories make her hair and makeup the stars of this look. She shows us that sometimes less is more when it comes to clothing and accessories.

The turtleneck sweater, leggings and boots combination is easy to wear around campus, and it’s casual yet put together. She tops off her look with simple accessories and a pink bag so she stands out in a sea of neutral-colored purses. Her relaxed outfit brings all the attention to her bold hair and makeup.

One of the first things I noticed about this Fashionista was her awesome, edgy hair: short and bleach blonde, with an undercut and shaved on the other side. Her bold makeup complements her already edgy haircut. Her dark brown matte lips pop against her fair skin and are the focus of the makeup. To make her eyes stand out behind her glasses, a cat eye is the way to go.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To complete this look, balance is key. Keep the outfit and accessories simple and clean so the focus is on your beauty. Use a matte lipstick or liquid lipstick in a deep color like a dark brown, plum, or red. Line your eyes with a liquid liner that will define your features and last all day. Keep the rest of your face and eye makeup somewhat neutral to balance the bold lip and liner. This look is sure to get you noticed!
