Hot Pink Lips

I am a self proclaimed lipstick wimp.  I wear all sorts of colors on my eyes but inevitably reach for a neutral, light lippy.  Today I opted for a neutral eye and some vibrant lips :)

Eyes:
Bare Necessity Indelible cream shadow as base
Matte Off white and Tan from neutral WnW palette- off white all over eye area, tan on outer edge of lid and into crease
MAC Dark Edge on outer V and along lower lashline
MAC Transparent Teal Reflects patted on lid (this did not show up in pics)
Ben Nye Cakeliner- black on upper lashline

Lips- Prestige lipliner in Diva to line and fill in lips and Bare Escentuals Buxom Gloss in Laura

Cheeks- NYX Peach









Thanks for looking!

  1. I hereby proclaim myself to be. Fellow lipstick wimp. I always wear nude colors that are a little pinker than my lip color, or pink lip gloss. I've been trying to branch out, but when I do extreme eyshadow looks I don't want to look like a tryhard by wearing bright lipstick too. Thanks for this post! I also love your hairstyle.

  8. LOL, I'm a lipstick wimp as well, I feel funny wearing anything brighter than a simple nude pink. Feel like everyone's staring at me. >.> But I'll have you know you look quite fetching with a bright pink lip! ;)

  9. The pink lip is beautiful on you! :) I'm a bit of a lipstick wimp as well. I love wearing a bright or dark lip, but will only ever do a neutral eye with them. I just can't bring myself to do a bright lip with a bright eye

  15. this looks lovely on you! I know what you mean, I experiment with all kinds of crazy eye makeup, but when it comes to lips I almost always just end up with some kind of pale pink gloss!
