Hair & Makeup: Coral Lipstick

I’ve been wanting to try coral lipstick for a while. It looks great on the celebs in fashion magazines, but does it translate into real life?

Here are the two and only times I’ve worn it and I’m still on the fence as to whether I like it. This specific color is Temptation by Cover Girl.

Weekend:

So what’s the verdict? Would/Do you wear coral lipstick?

I believe hair and makeup pull an overall look together. If you have on a great outfit, but your hair and makeup is off, the whole ensemble can be ruined. Hair and makeup are also easy, inexpensive ways to change your style! If my new segment, I not only display the outfit, but the hairstyle and makeup I chose and why. Hope you enjoy!

Occasion: Night Out Downtown

Hair: It was a rainy and muggy night, so I decided to put my hair up in a high ponytail. Boy was I glad I did this when we started dancing! I also took my bangs (that I’m trying to grow out) and tied them in a french braid around the side of my head for extra sass.

Makeup: I added more than normal since this was a night out. I chose rosy colors for my eyes along with soft black liner. I also chose to keep my cheeks in the same palate with a rosy pink. On my lips, I used Covergirl Lipslicks in Hipster which is sort of a blend of lipstick and gloss. To fill in the color more, I used a cranberry liner.

Tip: My eyes are one of my smaller features, so I stay away from liner on my lower lash line. Liner on the bottom tends to make your eye appear smaller, so if you have small eyes – take note.

Would you wear cranberry colors on your lips?
