A Bold Lip? Here We Go!

This Spring for me is all about being adventurous and stepping out of my comfort zone, especially when it comes to beauty in fashion.  I got a head start in the fashion department with the 30×30 challenge but I needed to get back to my other love which I feel I haven’t been covering as much as I used to! (I’m telling you there just isn’t enough time in the day!)

Anywho, today I’m featuring a makeup look I did  last weekend for Mother’s Day.  I just woke up that morning and just did something that was competely not the norm for me:  Heavy Liner and a bold lip.  I always play it safe when it comes to my lip color!  All the colors I have are either natural brown colors or soft shades of purple and pink.  I tried the red lip color awhile back but I was super conservative putting it on.  As for eyeliner, the only time I piled that on was for Halloween so that doesn’t really count either!  This time though, I stopped being a scaredy cat and I did my version of a cat eye instead!  I fought really hard to keep my eyeshadow toned down and natural so the liner can stand out.   I used my normal cheek color and just went all out my red lip gloss, which gave a deep rich color that I needed without a lot of work!

It’s definitely a different look for me but I kinda liked it and would probably wear it again!

    I’ve been searching for a good coral kind of lip colour, not necessarily a lipstick, but glosses as well! I love your lip colour here! xo

      Coral is a beautiful color!! But it is one of those things I think would work better as a gloss because the wrong shade can have you looking crazy!

      Thank you! It’s crazy because I have no problem going bonkers with eyeshadow but when it comes to lip color I’m always playing it safe! Definitely taking baby steps!
