BEAUTY BAR: Lipstick Lover

If you know me well, you should know that lipstick is my signature look. I hardly ever leave my dorm without it—even if I’m about to go eat. To be honest, even when I’m watching my favorite TV show alone in my pajamas, I most likely have lipstick on. I do it for me–not for anyone else. It’s amazing how much more confident the simple swipes of putting a bolder lipstick on can make women feel as they are going about in their daily lives.

No matter your style, bold lips brings back the classic appeal of forgone Hollywood stars. It is something that will never go out of style: it’s the epitome of class. In a world where current trends are shifting towards a more practical lifestyle, champions of the bold lip seek to choose fashion over function. The word, bold, describes both the quality of the lipstick and the character of the woman behind it. It takes a certain individual to confidently rock it. Diane Keaton famously states, “Just have fun. Smile. And keep putting on lipstick.” Ultimately, it comes down to embracing who you are and start living, one stroke of lipstick at a time.

This Fashionista did a perfect job of rocking the bold lip by keeping her outfit monochromatic. Her faux black leather leggings paired with her strappy black crop top and black open toed booties are a great combination. To complete her look, she added an animal print kimono. By keeping her outfit similar dark tones, she is able to add contrast through the lipstick, making it a focal point and adding a splash of color.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To achieve this look, it is essential you buy a pure matte lipstick that not only stays on for hours, but also moisturizes and soothes your lips. This Fashionista kept the rest of her makeup very natural looking in order to not take away from the bold lip.
