DARE to be BOLD!

Don't forget to enter my blog giveaway! Click here to enter now! Open until January 25, 2012.

Ever seen someone rocking a bold look & wish you could do the same but it's just out of your comfort zone? Well I encourage you to try it. I have clients that come into the store all the time & compliment a bold lip color or look I'm wearing & say "I wish I could use that." Well, you can. Makeup is supposed to be fun. It's supposed to be daring, creative & sometimes out of your comfort zone. Back then I never ever pictured myself wearing a red lipstick because I felt I "didn't match." There is a perfect red lipstick for everyone out there, you just got to find the right shade.

Lately I have been into bold lips. I guess I've been using nudes far too long & it was time to step out of the box & try new things. Wearing a bold lip can change up any look & I really like that concept. You can just wing out your eye liner, throw on some false lashes, put on a bright lip color & look fierce.

So speaking about stepping outside of the box, I've been playing with a bunch of colors, seeing what suits my skintone the best & lately I have been loving matte & satin textures and colors that are in the fuschia & purple families. That is totally out of my comfort zone! I never in a million years thought I'd wear purple lipstick but I must admit I like it.

So you never know what you might fall in love with if you don't try it. So pick up that red or bright colored lipstick or gloss you've had your eye on for a while & I dare you to put it on. You might not like it at first because you're not used to it but I'm sure others will have a different point of view. And if all else fails, remember it's just makeup. At the end of the day you can wipe it all off =) Good luck!

i agree, sometimes its fun to step out of your comfort zone and try smth fun and different...as far as lip colour goes, i still haven't find the red lipstick that i want to wear out yet...the ones i have all look too formal, and i dont know what to wear on the rest of my face...i do however i luv wear bolder more intense shades of pink and fuschia, even a more pigmented coral/ but not red...if you have any suggestions i'd love to hear it~~~
