BEAUTY BAR: Read My Lips

Red lipstick is my go-to beauty essential that I cannot leave the house without. Ever. Honestly, who can resist the look of a classic red lip? It is a bold way to finish off any outfit and can be worn to any event whether it’s a night out downtown, on your way to class or a coffee shop date. A girl cannot do any wrong when wearing red lip stick.

This Fashionista makes a statement on campus with a dash of red lips in her flattering, black jumper dress. Her layering is on point as we head into the cooler days of fall with her white button-up blouse underneath her jumper. In continuation, this Fashionista made the brilliant decision to sport black tights underneath her dress. She then threw her army green jacket on to add an effortlessly chic vibe to her look. Black booties, especially ones with gold plated toes like these, add an edginess that is incomparable. I absolutely love the contrast this Fashionista created with her feminine jumper dress with these rad booties- it lends for a killer outfit.

The jeweled necklace adds to the daring mix of femininity and edginess. She also sports a vintage watch and multiple rings to add more glam. A structured black bag is effortlessly held in one hand and is the perfect edition to her chic style. This Fashionista clearly knows how to accessorize since she was brave enough to finish her look with a red lip. Who doesn’t want to feel bold, beautiful, fabulous?

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To get this look, you need a good quality red lip stick. It’s tricky finding the right shade of red, so one tip is to find one that has the same hue as the color of your eyes and complements your skin tone. For example, since I have blue eyes, I use “Lover” by Chanel which is a bluer red. It is essential that you take the time to find the right shade for you. It’s worth it in the long run!
