BEAUTY BAR: Maybe She's Born With It

Most of my summer days are spent makeup-free with my hair drying however it chooses. It’s my “time off” from being an actual girl all the time. We all hate the process of getting ready. Am I right? It’s usually done in intervals. Shower. Lay there. Dry hair. Lay there. Style hair. Lay there. Check social media. Apply make up. Lay there. Stare into my closet and wonder what am I going to wear? While my time in the summer is spent looking like a 14-year-old boy, this Fashionista knows how to keep looking fabulous even in these extremely high temperatures. It is August in South Carolina, after all. It takes talent to look this good.

Some people prefer no makeup, some prefer natural makeup and some decide based on what outfit they’re wearing. This Fashionista knows she needs a little pop of color while she wears a black top and simple jean shorts. She knows just how to spice up an outfit with a bright lip. She keeps her eye makeup noticeable but also subtle, letting that lipstick be the focus. But I also can’t help but have eyebrow envy. They’re definitely on point. This Fashionista obviously knows how to work it all, from head to toe. In the wise words of Liz Taylor, “Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick and pull yourself together.” Sometimes a good lip really pulls your outfit together, which can often make you feel like you have your life together as well.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To complete this look, you need a lipstick. It can be a matte or a gloss. If you don’t have naturally full lips, try using a lip plumping gloss. Choose whatever color is flattering for you or just a color you love and let those lips be the focus.
