BEAUTY BAR: It's All in the Lips

January 25th, 2016 at 2:00am

Everyone thinks picking an outfit is the hardest part of getting ready, until it’s time to pick your lip color for the day. Lipstick can be a girl’s best and worst enemy all at the same time. You can pick the right shade and feel like Rihanna all day, but pick the wrong shade and you’re regretting it.

Lip color is an easy way to add to any simple outfit, and it gives an idea of a Fashionista’s personality just as much as any outfit could. It is pivotal to pick the right shade for the season and for your skin tone.

This Fashionista is wearing a dark burgundy lipstick that is perfect for the fall and winter months. The lips take this basic, relaxed look and add a little bit of edge to it, showing off her personal style. She is wearing a classic denim shirt, which should be a staple piece in any Fashionista’s closet, and paired that with black leggings and her favorite black boots. This Fashionista decided to do minimal accessories by wearing a simple pair of post earrings and her personal collection of Alex and Ani bracelets. This look is perfect for a trip to the mall or relaxing on the weekends.

Lips should be a key component on every Fashionista’s beauty bar, and trying a variation of shades and brands can help you find the perfect shade to make your go-to color. Also by buying a wide variety of shades, you can choose a lip based on how you’re feeling and change it up every day.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To get this Fashionista’s look, you need a matte burgundy lipstick that you can find at any drugstore. Be sure to prep your lips with ChapStick before applying any lipstick to avoid cracking. The rest of your makeup can be simple, but you can add some more glam by making sure your eyebrows look great. You can achieve that by filling your eyebrows in with any brow pomade or filler just like this Fashionista did.
