Happy Tuesday! I can’t believe we are this far into the challenge. I know it’s only two weeks, but these two weeks are flying by. Today’s look was supposed to be all about dark, glossy lips, but I cheated a little by going just dark. Hey, that’s a challenge enough, right? I’m going to show my hand here: this look is the one that pushed me the most out of my comfort zone and the one I like the most of this entire challenge.
A few things usually happen when I wear dark lips: 1. I feel like Lorde and 2. I feel like I look very formal. Like I need an excuse to wear dark lips. i credit this to being very, very pale with dark hair, which can make dark lips look a little dramatic/goth. Vampy lips are usually a fall/winter look, but you know what I love about wearing them in the summer? I have a tan! With a tan, I feel a little less like edgy Lorde and a little more like sultry bad girl Rihanna. Also because dark lips are less dramatic with a tan, I feel like I can get away with rocking them to less formal occasions. For instance, I wore this look to my friend’s pizza and ice cream party (homemade pizza and ice cream that is– yum!)
I feel no need to lie about where I got the inspiration for this look. Youtuber Kait Nichole did a similar look based on Chrissy Teigen’s makeup. I’ve been waiting a while to find a way to wear this look.
