BEAUTY BAR: The Casual Bold Lip

BEAUTY BAR: The Casual Bold Lip

A bold lip is like a morning coffee—the right one will pick you up and get you ready for your day, leaving you with a feeling of empowerment and confidence. This intense lip color paired with a bright, light eyeshadow creates a look that’s sure to grab some attention but doesn’t leave you feeling like a clown with a caked on face. Having the center of focus around the lips, one doesn’t need to worry too much about doing something crazy on the eyes, not only saving yourself time but also keeping your makeup fresh and simple. After all, nothing ties a look together better than a statement lip and soft eyes.

This Fashionista sported a gorgeous look on her way out with friends over the weekend. Wanting to look nice but still keeping it somewhat casual, she opted for a beautiful dark lip, achieved with Kylie Lip Liner in Leo, and topped it off with Mac Diva lipstick. She paired her bold lip with a matching but much lighter eye using the Kylie Burgundy Palette, finishing it off with Better Than Sex mascara, also assisting her in elongating her already lengthy lashes. The warmer, pinker tones are refreshing with her tan skin, making her look full of color and almost glowing, but maybe that last part had a little something to do with the product she used. This Fashionista highlighted her features with her Kat Von D Alchemist Palette, using the more pink and purple toned shades in this beautifully captivating palette.

Although she was headed for a more casual night out, this makeup look would surely work for almost any type of occasion, whether it’s parties, events, or just a lunch or dinner with some friends. The dark lip gives off a more striking and going out feel, while the rest of her makeup calms it down enough to be worn to high-class events or more low-key and quiet occasions. When it comes to makeup, nobody should ever be afraid to go out on a limb and try on a new look; the creativity that comes along with it is endless—and not to mention just plain fun.
