How To Wear Bold Lips


I thought I'd do a beauty post about one of my favorite looks: bold lips. Now the golden rule is to only accentuate one feature when wearing makeup (i.e. smokey eye with a soft lip). When doing a bold lip, it's hard for me to tone down my eyes since I love dramatic lashes. However, wearing a simple cat eye (nothing too overstated) can be fun to pair with bold lips! I'm a big fan of the Rockabilly girl look and a cat eye with a red lip is such a retro look. I updated the look with a fuchsia lip.

Products I used:

* Stila's Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 Shade 01
* Stila's Long Wear Lip Liner in Obsessed
* e.l.f.'s Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter in Fair/Glow
* MAC's Haute & Naughty Lash Mascara- I used the first brush (pink top) to separate the lashes then went over it with the second brush (purple top) to make them fuller
* The liquid eyeliner is a random one I've had for awhile, no idea about the brand (sorry)
* Maybelline's ColorSensation Lipstick in 160 Fifth Ave. Fuchsia (love this color!)
* Make Up For Ever's HD Powder (use as a base to make the lipstick last)

How do you like to wear bold lips?

P.S. When I don't smile in pics I feel like I look so pissed off lol!

  3. You look amazing, do you find your bold lip colour lasts and do you have any tips for making it last longer?

    I love wearing bright bold lipstick, but it looks awful as it starts to fade and go all icky after half an hour or so!

  5. @Zarna- Aw thank you :)

    @Harriet- Aw thank you, I really like the Maybelline lipstick, it last the longest. I recommend an HD powder (Make Up For Ever is around $30 but I got it as a gift) e.l.f has one for $3. I totally understand about the icky thing, I feel like I look so weird with spotted lips haha

    @Brenda- Thanks for checking out my blog!
