I feel like a bold lip is something you are either really comfortable with or really uncomfortable with. A bold lip makes a statement for sure and is bound to draw a little attention. After all, what’s the point if it doesn’t do those two things? You may be able to take a guess based on my past pictures ( here and here for example) as to what I like. Yep, I love nothing more than a bold lip. In fact I am actually mildly uncomfortable with a nude lip, I feel slightly naked and like my face is lacking some color.
I feel that everyone should have at least one bold lip color in their makeup stash. Whether that be a red, pink, purple, ect. You never know when that special occasion, or random day will come along when you feel like rocking it. It elevates the most basic of outfits, like athleisure, without really doing anything at all.
I suggest if you are not a big lipstick wearer that you do your research on all the various formulas. Glosses, stains, creams, mattes, liquid lipsticks…..there are a lot. I love liquid lipsticks are their staying power is unbeatable. You don’t have to worry about random touch ups throughout the day. They are a bit drying however and the color payoff can be quite intense (if you are uncomfortable with the boldness). Glosses are a good way to try the bright color out as their color payoff is not as intense and they also don’t dry out the lips.
P.S I couldn’t resist the red/pink combination for Valentines Day. 🙂
