How To Wear Bright Colored Lips

Dress-H&M

I adore a glamorous bright bold lip. It adds a statement to any outfit. A lot of women out there are afraid to wear bright lipstick, but I think it is just a matter of getting used to it.

First, go the department store and try as many colors are you can. You need to see how colors look with your skin tone and how true they stay on your lips. Then when you find one you love, buy ten! 


Unless you want to look overdone keep the rest of your make up light. Try light natural colors on your eyes to keep them bright. You may also want to apply a little powder to lips depending on how dark you go. If you want a dramatic red lip use a tissue to blot and be careful to keep it within the shape of your mouth. You may need to apply two coats to make it last. 

Here are a few of my favorites worn on this blog:
1. Nars in Schiap $24
2. Make Up For Ever in Satin Bright Orange $19
3. M.A.C. Tinted Lipglass in Pink Poodle $14.50
5. Sephora Lip Attitude Capricious Red $12

Thanks for all the tips, you wear a bright lip so perfectly. Recently I've been thinking about trying it myself but have been a bit scared. Think I will try some out and see!

Oh, Taylor. I can't tell you how much I'd love to pull off a bright colored lip. I am just to scared to even try. You look great with them, and I know these lips add such a statement to any outfit. Hmm, maybe I will try it next time I am at the store.

Oh thank you for this post!! I'm still getting used to wearing bold lipsticks and eye shadows. I'm usually just a mascara and powder kinda girl... trying to step up my game! ;)

Bre said...

I'm with you 100%. Women just need to experiment with brighter lip colors, find one that suits them, and rock it and they will feel comfortable with time. Thanks for being "brave" and wearing bright lip colors!

So, so pretty, and you wear a bright colored lip very well!

I have been thinking I am going to do a bright red lip for our annual holiday party this year...I never wear lipstick, just a peachy pink lipgloss, but I think a statement lip and very natural face might be what I do...thanks for the tips!

Liesl :)

P.S. Cute green dress!

Ewelka said...

Great post! I used to be so reluctant to wear bright lipstick but I've been trying it, going darker gradually and I love it! It's becoming my favorite element of makeup.

I love the coral color but whenever I put on lipstick I feel like an imposter. Maybe I just haven't found my shade yet...

I've been working up the courage to wear bright lips more frequently but finally got the courage today! And of course shouldn't have worried, so many compliments.
Still need to perfect the look like yours though!

I've finally come to the conclusion that I can't pull off bright lipsticks. I always end up looking like a child that got into her mom's make-up bag. So instead I just wear a lot of eye make-up. ;) You pull it off though!

Sarah Klassen said...

So inspiring! You do it so well! I wish I could wear bright lipstick, but I fear it would be all wrong with my red hair -- so I stick to rich tones of brownish-rose and nude :)

OK, love the polka dot dress, where did you get it?? Love the belt and flower, great add on!

Mademoiselle Antonova said...

i do want to wear lipstick... but i don't.
