Bold Lip Colors

Whenever I'm in a hurry but still want to look somewhat glam, I put my hair up in a sleek ponytail, apply a light layer of foundation, a couple coats of mascara and go for a bold lip color. It really makes it look like you put a lot of effort in to your look, when you really didn't :) 

I know some people are afraid of bold colors, but I just happen to love them and think they look great on everyone. If you're new to makeup, or are unsure of wearing bold colors, begin by just applying your lip color as a stain by tapping the color on to your lips, as opposed to in long strokes. A tip for making it blend naturally, is to gently rub the color in with your finger so it melts into the lips.

I bought these two berry / pink colored lipsticks today from the drugstore. I'm so happy I found them because I was looking for this exact color! The first is a lipstick by Maybelline in the color Hooked On Pink. It's really creamy and the color is gorgeous. The second one is a lip pencil by Rimmel called Indian Pink (love the name!). I love wearing lip pencils as lipsticks because they last a lot longer and the finish is truly matte, which is my favorite.
