Vampy Lips

I've been a nude lip/Chapstick girl for a very long time. I flirted with bright red lips in high school, and even a black lip or two in my punky years, but I've honestly always been self-conscious of how big my lips are. I know right? Such problems. But for real though, I sometimes feel a little clown-ish when rocking a bold lip. Lately though, lips are the talk of the town. Maybe we have Taylor Swift to thank, but it feels like lipstick in particular is back in a big way. So I'm forcing myself to wear it, and actually loving it!

I can take credit for this vampy look. The lovely salesgirl at my local MAC counter was sporting this combo and I HAD to have it. It's the Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in Bespoken For with their Matte Lipstick in Diva on top. I love the dimension that the slightly darker liner adds, and the current trend towards matte lipsticks is really helping to ease me back into the world of colours.

-Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla
-Elf Essential Foundation Brush
-Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless Foundation in Porcelain 110
-Quo's Knockoff of a Beauty Blender
