Brighten Up A Look - Bright Pink Lips
When it comes to makeup, we tend to think of it as the self-beautifier, but it certainly goes beyond that. A bold-stated lip or smokey eye acts as an accessory in and of itself.
The bright pink is a fantastic way to dress up a simpler outfit. The lip speaks so loud, that the wardrobe selection can follow the practice of understated elegance. A perfect fitting anything, simple earrings, and very limited accessories is the best call.
The bolder the outfit, the smaller you go with accessories when it comes to a bright lip. Too overdone with such intense makeup screams trying too hard and all the confident allure of the lipstick goes out the window.
When going with the bold lip, the vibrancy of it may shock the system a bit when you first apply it. It does take a little getting used to, but it’s worth sticking it out. The bright (almost neon) pink is as fun as it is sexy. Like most lipsticks, it’s best with a little bit of gloss in the center of the lip. This adds a little sparkle, but also serves to soften the look up a bit. It keeps the intensity, but loses the severity.

Divide and Conquer
These fun and funky pieces define sartorial genius. Both items marry simplistic design with fierce metalwork to make real head-turners. The tiny strip of stomach skin is the perfect amount as well on the both the summer frock and the peplum tank crop top.
For the dress:
Go for a sweeter aesthetic with a simple pair of summer booties or a pair of flat sandals. Keep it light on the accessories because the metal speaks for itself as a dramatic accessory. Wear mild makeup like a pale lip and a light eye shadow if any at all.
Go for a bolder look with a dramatic chunky heel and bright lip or smokey eye. Still watch the accessory overkill!
For the shirt:
Pair the shirt with a high wasted skirt that lets the bottom of the peplum just touch the top so you occasionally see a pop of skin. Make sure the skirt doesn’t flounce out too much because you’ll loose all your shape. A good A-line or even pencil shirt would work wonders. Conversely, you could also dress it seriously down with a pair of jeans or even a pair of the fun pastel-colored pants that are sweeping the store fronts this season.
To dress it up for night, it’s all in the color palette. Go darker in your shades of clothing and more confident in your makeup. Also, adding a little height never hurt so slip into those heels ladies!
Cute and crafty! Check these items out at LF stores.
