Winter Lips - Get The Courage To Wear It

If you want to make an outfit pop, or add something extra try a bold lip. Not everyone likes bold lips, I for one love them! Theres no better way to complete an outfit or take it to the next level than to wear a striking bold lip. 

If you like the look of bold lips but don't feel like you could brave it out and wear it I have a couple of tips for you. 

First the neutral lip, you need to be comfortable with the concept of wearing lipstick. If you are, great move on, if not try and wear it as many places as you can, even at home, or just to the shop. Getting yourself comfortable with lipstick is going to help your confidence when wearing a bold lip, and to be able to pull off bold lips you need to feel confident in it.

Onces you are used to wearing lipstick just bite the bullet and buy a bold lip. Any sort of bold lipstick will do. Whether is one you've seen on blogs, one you've been eyeing up, or just one to try out. 
With the bold lip its about building. 
Start by dabbing the lipstick to your lips and smooth it out with your finger. You wont get much pigmentation with this but you will start to get comfortable with wearing it. 
Once you have worn this for a while take it up a notch and pack more colour onto your lips building up the look.
One way for doing this is putting the lipstick onto your lips and using some tissue paper and blot the colour. This will instantly take the colour down and become a more wearable, softer colour.

Now its time to brave it and just wear the colour in its full pigmentation. The best time to wear this would be on a night out. If I want to try something new out I normally tend to do it on a night out. This is because I feel in the daytime I have nowhere to hide from daylight. I feel like everyone is looking at me more and I tend not to want to try it again. When on a night you have the confidence boost to attempt it.

  3. I started cooing over Dark Side and then realised moments later that I have it. It's such a pretty colour, and I really like the Illamasqua shade as well.

    I agree, lipstick can elevate any look and mood. I can't stand lipgloss but lipstick is amazing.
