Blue, purple, orange, black and every shade imaginable are popping up on the make up counter. And I say that, "I'm FOR EM!" I absolutley love a vibrant or bold pop of color for the lips. What I think needs to be made clear is how to pull this look off. Here's my advice; let your lips do the talking. More specifically if you want to rock a bold lip you need to keep all other make to a minimum. Not only does this draw attention to the fabulous lip color but it doesn't distract from it either. You can't wear a heavy eye and a crazy lip or you will look like a clown. I don't care what anyone says, you don't need heavy eye make up when you have your lips going on. My rule of thumb is you pick one or the other. That's it. However, I don't recommend playing up your lashes. This will make your eyes pop and appear larger as well. I also would advise using a lip brush to apply your lip color. Although it is tedious you want an even application and be able to control the shape with exactness.

My lip color is "Poisonberry" by Lime Crime. I have posted  few of their lip colors before and I am obsessed. They have a colorful selection  and the quality is impeccable!
