Pretty Pouts


One beauty trend this season that I’m having so much fun with is bold lips. Since my eyes are one of my favorite features, I’ve always gravitated towards playing them up and leaving my lips bare, but over the past few weeks, I’ve discovered that minimalist eyes and pretty lipstick bring out my eyes even more, since there’s not all that eyeliner and stuff to distract from them.

Inspired by celebrities, Glamour‘s “Girls in the Beauty Department,” and Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere, I rounded up my favorite lip colors and decided to share them with you :)

{Revlon Fuchsia Fusion is probably my favorite lipstick right now! The bright pink shade is especially fun to wear on a gloomy day :)}

{For a more subtle, pretty look, I love Rimmel Airy Fairy. It has the perfect amount of shimmer to work in both the daytime and at night}

{CoverGirl Brandyberry is one of my go-to lip colors. The dark coral with hints of gold is so wearable, and I think it would look beautiful on any skin tone}

{Revlon Blase Apricot is the newest addition to my lipstick collection. Orange lips have been everywhere lately, and I just had to try it! I like how this shade isn’t too orange-y, so it’s good for someone new to the look, like me!}

{Can’t write a lip color post without classic red! It took me ages to find the right red for my skin tone and coloring, but Sephora‘s Lip Attitude in Red Flirt hits the jackpot}

What lip colors have you been prettifying your pout with lately? Will you be wearing any bright colors on your lips this weekend? I would love to hear about it!
