Berry Beautiful Lippies

Hi Dolls! :)

Hope everyone is having a great week. Half of September has already flown by. I cannot believe it!


Fall is my favorite time of the year for many reasons. One being Fall fashion and beauty.
 
I could not be more thrilled with the fact that the bold berry lip is in high demand this Fall. Purples, berries, and red lippies to me scream fierce and fabulous.

I often pair these bold lips with a neutral eye and a clean face. If I am going out for cocktails and dancing, or a fancy dinner, I may kick it up a notch with a cat eye and some false lashes.
 
Here are just a few I picked up recently.


 
From Left to Right

Milani- Sangria
Revlon- Berry Haute
Revlon- Cherries in the Snow
Maybelline- Blissful Berry
Cover Girl Lipslicks- 215

 Cover Girl Wetslicks- Cranberry Splash



 
 These swatches are one swipe of each color. I paired both Cover Girl products together in the last swatch. These lipsticks are very pigmented and you can build them for a more dramatic look.

Not sure you can rock this look? Sure you can! Take baby steps and start off with a lighter shade ;)

1. Find your favorite celebrity figure who is rocking the dark berry lip to help you mimic the look. Beyonce, Katy Perry, Coco Rocha, and Khloe Kardashian are just to name a few.

2. The lighter your skin, the more dramatic the look. Decide how much of a statement you want to make and adjust your look accordingly.

3. Be sure and outline your lips with a lip pencil close to the shade of your lipstick. Any drugstore brand will do. This will give you a symmetric overall look. Apply lipstick with a brush for longer wear if you do not have a steady hand.

4. Your lips are doing all the talking. Be sure and keep your skin fresh, clean, and dewy. Make your eyes pop with your favorite mascara. Want an added pop to this look, amp it up with a pair of falsies.

Many of you may ask what would you wear with this lip? Your options are endless! Try a great pair of skinny jeans, over the knee boots and bomber jacket. A great cocktail dress . A pair of palazzo pants and a great tank.
Lets just say, you can pair this lip with as simple as a t-shirt and boyfriend jeans.

 ALL YOU NEED IS CONFIDENCE LADIES!

Any skin tone can rock this BERRY BEAUTIFUL LIP :)

Let me know what color you ladies are digging this season.
Be sure and have yourself a great week!
