What to Wear Wednesday - A Bold Lip Color

I don't know about you but as soon as Spring arrives so does my urge to buy fun, new lip colors! I love looking at the rows of colors in the stores and I could spend hours testing different shades on my hand. Even though I definitely have my favorites, I always push myself to try something new and experiment with different shades. That is what I am hoping to encourage you to do today if you are one to shy away from bold lip color or even if you are just one to always migrate to the same shades.

If you haven't noticed color is in! Bold, bright colors, even neons are everywhere these days in clothes, shoes, jewelry, handbags and yes, beauty products. Surprisingly a lot of women are afraid of color, especially when it comes to bold colors, and when you mention putting a bold color on their face they turn green! A bold lip is a great way to instantly update your makeup and brighten up your face. It takes some getting used to, like everything, but once you get used to seeing yourself in it you will learn to love it. Will all shades work well on you? No, of course not. Spend some time testing different shades and bring along a friend for some honest feedback. If you are in a store like Sephora or Ulta ask for help and some suggestions of some bright colors that would work well on you.

Don't give up if the first one you try doesn't work for you! I have found that usually a color looks completely different on than the packaging or the color that you see as a sample. In some cases it can even look different on your lips than it did on your hand, it all depends on the natural color of your lips. Just keep in mind that if you aren't used to seeing yourself in a bright color you may need to give it some time to get used to seeing yourself in it before you decide on the shade.

A few bold lip colors that I am loving lately are Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Yu, Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in Satsuma and Clementine and bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Never Say Never. Not only do I love these shades but I love the formula as well. I have found them to be creamy, long lasting and they stay put. As much as I love lipsticks and lip glosses, lately I have become a huge fan of the lip pencils and crayons that wear like lipstick. If you haven't tried them yet you should check them out!

So are you willing to try something new and try a bold lip color? Or if you are already a bright lover what are some of your favorite brands and shades? I'd love to hear from you!
