Red Lips & Tulle

It all started with lipstick….I admired make-up but was unsure on how to apply it. My first venture into the make-up world was through lipstick. There isn’t an art to it and you can’t really apply it wrong. Lipstick is approachable. I love how it provides a subtle flair to my look and works as an accessory of sorts. For example, a bold red lip looks best with classic silhouettes and a black and white palette. The combination offers an elegant and sophisticated aura.

I began experimenting with make-up about three years ago. Now, make-up has become vital to my look. Oftentimes, I like to create an outfit centered around my make-up. For this particular look, the sheer tulle top was the focal point of this outfit and the red lip would help to emphasize its unique quality. I paired it with black to serve as a base to support this statement piece. I chose wide leg pants to balance out the simplistic and bare nature that a bandeau offers. The bandeau didn’t distract from the sheer top and it complemented its flared silhouette. The satin material of the pants reinforced and aided in the polished, sophisticated theme.

Happy National Lipstick Day! I’m wearing the shade Diva by MAC. This shade is my “old faithful.” The burgundy and berry undertones provide a sultry sub layer to the prominent elegant and sophisticated layers. I always grab this color when I want to stand out. Now, it’s your turn! Put on some lipstick and make a statement! Wear a red lip for a sophisticated look or experiment with coral for the Summer season. Any color is yours for the choosing! Find shades that will complement your undertones to flatter you in the best way. Wear lipstick as an accessory and don’t let it wear you!

    I’m currently obsessing over matte lipsticks I was too afraid to wear them before but now I’m loving it. Trying different colors! I love how the red lipstick inspired your look.

    This is such a beautiful and stylish outfit. Tulle is a great material to wear when you want to feel light and airy and feminine.
