BEAUTY BAR: Life is Too Short to Wear Bad Lipstick

Fall is the best season for fashion. The best part about it? The colors of the beautiful leaves that fall from the trees. Especially in a place like East Lansing, Michigan, where the tones are particularly decadent. Perfect makeup can make or break an outfit; in particular, your lip color. Fall is all about color, so why not experiment a bit with the perfect shade? This week I am talking about my absolute favorite lip trend: dark lips. Finding a great stain isn’t easy, but luckily I’m here to help!

The dark shade of this Fashionista’s hair goes perfectly with a great purple lip, but don’t be afraid to experiment with light hair colors as well! Here she is wearing dark tones that compliment but don’t act matchy-matchy. This black Forever 21 crop top is a great go-to for the fall. You can dress it up or down, and it’s a total steal. Dark jeans are a total fall must-have. They go great with boots or tennis shoes for class or heading to a pumpkin patch. You can also find these at Forever 21, another great staple for a small price. Although her jacket is a similar shade to her lips, it doesn’t overpower the look by the accent of the fur. Don’t be afraid to match your lip shade! It only brings out the fun color more. Another great option would be to pair this outfit with the jacket in green.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: For this look to work, you need a great dark lip shade and a lipstick or lip stain works perfectly! Here our Fashionista is wearing NARS lipstick in Scarlett Empress. Head to your beauty store and find which dark shade works best for you.
