You may have noticed that my make-up in most of my photos is fairly neutral. Today, I wanted to show off a strong lip for you guys!
When doing a strong lip color, I like to keep my eyes understated. The point of make-up is to enhance your features. A strong lipstick highlights the beauty of your lips by drawing attention. Keeping the eyes neutral keeps the attention on the lips and keeps a balance to the overall look.
A strong lip doesn’t have to be the bright red or matte like I used here. A shiny colored gloss in tints of orange or purple can achieve a similar effect. Don’t be afraid to play around with different colors!
Tip: When I use a color, I make sure it contrasts somewhat strongly with whatever top I am wearing to avoid a costume or themed feel. But if that’s you, go for it! Make-up is meant to enhance you and reflect your personality. Have fun with it!
Announcement: I know I haven’t been posting the past couple of weeks, but that doesn’t mean work hasn’t been happening behind the scenes! I’ll be unveiling some new content and organization on the site soon. Stay tuned!
