BEAUTY BAR: Go Bold or Go Home

Cloudy, rainy summer days can put a damper on anyone’s mood. With the sun rays gone and a chill brushing the air, it can easily make you want to put on a comfy college hoodie and the biggest sunglasses to go incognito in. But remember ladies and gentlemen, fashion never sleeps!

Walking past this Fashionista, I couldn’t help but notice how she ignored the temperature drop and, as we say here at CollegeFashionista, kept on being RAD! While her floral skater dress stood out the most, it was her beautiful makeup that I fell in love with. Her makeup seemed effortless and toned down while she allowed her lipstick to be the center of attention. The bold lip trend has become popular amongst many and seen on different celebrities, such as Kylie Jenner.

Making a bold lip decision can take a little more effort in the morning with lip liners, glosses and the perfect combination of colors. But what’s important when choosing a bold lip color is to choose one that also blends with your outfit. Although this Fashionista did not go for a monochromatic look that would allow for a wide range of color options, her lipstick color perfectly blended with her floral color scheme.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To complete this effortless look, you need a lipstick or lip stain in a color you feel the most comfortable in. But don’t forget to step outside of your comfort zone and go bold! While choosing a bold lip, it is always best to keep the rest of your makeup look simple with natural foundation and blush, as this Fashionista did. Most importantly remember to carry your lipstick or stain with you for easy touch ups and fixes throughout your day. Follow these simple steps, and you’re set for a bold day!
