Braving Bright Bold Lips

It's been a while since my last post but don't let that fool you, I haven't been doing nothing for this blog. In fact, I've been working on and have published my contact and disclaimer page *point upwards*. I have an about me page in the works as well but won't probably be up too soon as I'm still experimenting with various layouts. Anyway, today I decided to brave a bold bright pink lipstick. I've mentioned several times before that I'm most comfortable in either nude colored lipsticks or dark ones but I believe it's important to always step outside of one's comfort zone.

So I thought I'd knock two birds with one stone and make it a bright pink lip. I actually bought this color way back in February but haven't really worn it as again, bright lipsticks scare me, the shade is Sleek's sheer lipstick in Fuchsia. I ended up pairing it with Urban Decay's 24/7 lip pencil in anarchy which I bought soon after trying out their pencil in venom as I just loved the quality of these lip pencils. Anyway, I kept my eye makeup simple by just adding a little flick to my liner and applied a light neutral blush to keep the focus on the lips. I have to say, I'm actually quite fond of the finished look. Although I don't tend to really care for seasonal trends I can't help but think this would have been a decent look to pull off during the sunnier summer days.
