The Lips and the Looks

 

I was in Madrid for 3 days, Barcelona for 3 days, on Mediterranean Cruise for 7 nights and spent another 2 full days in Rome. It was about two weeks vacation. And because the itinerary is a mixture of cities, sea and a light touch of luxury, I had so much fun planning on the outfits and also thinking of what lips color they would go well with. This is a year of lipsticks. I’ve never purchased this much in a year before. So let’s see how I matched them.

I had this color on for a Hipster-like look -you know when you got the hat and sneaker shoes on. The chocking pink gives the breakthrough image. When you dare to wear this chocking bright color, surely it gives you a playful freestyle look!!! That’s uplifting everybody.

Red Lips over the tiring look- that’s the trick!

 

All of the people who know me well will know that I am to buy this lipstick for sure, cause I am a real fan of Gwen. Her looks and her red lips have always inspired me.

 

I usually wear the red on these occasions.

  1. I want to look dressed up or needed a confident look [mostly for work]
  2. On one of those days when I look very tired, like in this picture. I woke up at 6:30 A.M to catch a train from Madrid to Barcelona. I slept only a couple of hours a night before. The red gives me more vibrancy and fresher.
  3. When I wear simple outfit, something like a plain white shirt with jeans or simple black pants. Red just makes your face more stand out.
If there is black and white then, it's gotta be red.

Nude

Candy K, Metal Matte Lipstick, Kylie

I wear nude when I don’t want ‘Colors fight!’

Today I got red shirt with blue skirt- two intense colors. That’s why I’m choosing nude for the lips. When I wear nude lipstick, I always make sure I have lips liner on as well so that your lips look well defined.

You definitely need the lips liner for the nude lips

Orange

Flame, N°7

Orange Green Gold is one of the classics mixed. That’s no need to think twice for this. I had the green sleeveless shirt on. I got the gold earring on; surely it will be orange lips for the day.

Nude Pink

Light Pink, Matte Lipstick,RMK

Obviously you want to wear this color on the day you’re all about ‘soft tone’ or ‘pastel’. It’s like going with the flow. I’m wearing this nude pale pink with the light blue shirt and white shorts. Easy style. Relaxed. Casual Tone. Soft and Smooth.

 

The light pink makes me look younger, don't you think ?? :-P

Deep Matte Purple

Berry Me, Dose of Colors

Dose is one my very favorites lipstick. Berry Me is obviously not an everyday wear color for me. I really really love this color though but I usually wear on an occasion.

This picture was taken in a Royal Princess Cruise on the Caption’s Formal Night. I was wearing long beige gold dress. When I matched the dress with this deep purple lip, it enhanced the elegant style. Contrast, sharp, confidence and yet sophisticated.

Actually, this dress can also go with the pure nude lips, if you have darker skin tone. Nude is something that does not really go well with my skin color though. I would look too pale.
