How to Pull off Bright Bold Lips for Daytime!

Bold Lips for Spring!
This Spring 2016 bold lips are all the rage, well it's always been, however its taking the guesswork out of makeup looks this year. By adding a bold lip you can skip the eyeshadow and go for a simple cat eye or just bold lashes. Dust on a light blush that fits with your skintone and you are out the door and sometimes you don't even need that! This will save you so much time getting ready and it will work amazing for the daytime...BONUS! This season it's all about brights in different textures from matte, lacquer, and satin. Here are my favorite bright lip colors for the new season and how to wear all of them!

Orchid Floral Lips!
The 70's inspired beauty trends are coming back so why not take a cue from glorious florals and add orchids on your lips! This bright magenta is bold and perfect for all skin tones. Go for a dewy skin look with setting spray. I'm wearing Revlon Matte Balm in Passionate.

Cherry Lips!
Red lips will never go out of style, thanks to Taylor Swift! On the runway last fall matte red was all over the place, but in a good way! This look gives off a rock and roll tone! Go with a natural contour and highlight. I'm wearing Maybelline New York Color Blur in Cherry Cherry Bang Bang.

Tangerine Lips
Add a pop of a vibrant orange to brighten up any work day. Keep the makeup simple with a statement of big lashes and lips! I'm wearing Maybelline New York Vivid Matte Liquid. This color is more orange in person :)

When Coco Chanel told us to look in the mirror and take one thing off, she meant accessories but now it looks like that awesome quote has taken over the beauty industry as well!  

3 Tips on Wearing Bold lips during the Day!

Keep the Look simple! 
The way I did these looks are really simple and you only need a few products to get it! Keep the focus on your lips and clean up the brows. Get that dewy look with highlighters and setting sprays and make your eyes doll like with mascara!

Keep the rest of your outfit simple too!
Do not, I repeat do not, match your clothes to your lipstick! Save the rachetness for the night time haha! Stick with neutral shades to keep the eye up at the lips!

Rock Your Confidence!
After that whole controversy with MAC's instagram picture of a beautiful black woman with big lips, btw the same lips many women try to imitate, I felt impelled to rock my beautiful big lips in bright colors this season! Women of color should never feel down about our natural lips...ROCK IT SISTAS!
