1 look- 3 lipsticks

I've been on quite a lipstick kick. Maybe its summer and all the bright colors it has to bring, but I've been loving experimenting with new colors and different finishes. Its easy (for me at least) to feel like I have to keep the rest of my makeup simple if I'm wearing dramatic lipstick, but I wanted to play around with a full face of makeup and see how adventurous I could get with my lips too.

The other day I did a pretty classic smokey eye with a nude lip like usual. But then I started thinking about switching things up, and went from a nude lip, to a bright red, then to a black lip all within a few minutes. Its surprising how completely different a look can be when you just change your lip color!

First with a nude lip:

Then a red:

Lastly a black (with a touch for gold- because why not?):

Its crazy how lipstick completely transforms a look: from classic, to glamorous  to punk. Which is your favorite?

  1. I like the black, with the touch of gold! Really shows off the gold in the eye color!
