One of my favorite things in this world is a bold lip. A striking lip color can promptly enhance your confidence and add instant glamour to your entire outfit. I think a lot of times the power of lipstick is greatly overlooked. As women we want to feel beautiful no matter what we are wearing and for me lipstick gives me the power to conquer the world.

As I roamed around campus the other week I wondered if any other women felt the same admiration for the small tubes of immense power as I did. That is when I came across this Fashionista.

This Fashionista was wearing a gray cardigan with a tartan scarf. To accompany the outfit she added some classy pearl earrings and cream booties. Her style is impeccable, but what really caught my eye was her marvelous pink lip.

These upcoming winter months are dull and gray here in the Midwest, but this won’t phase our Fashionista! Her bright pink pout will be ready to combat any gloominess thrown her way.

If you experience the absence of color like we do, add some bright lipstick to pull you out of the seasonal slump. Your look will be transformed from class casual to runway ready in no time.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To complete this look all you will need is a lip liner and your favorite shade of shiny lipstick. Be sure to keep the rest of your makeup simple so it doesn’t look like too much. Don’t be afraid to experiment with dark colors like purple or maroon for the season and most of all have fun with it!
