How to Rock a Bold Lip

For some people, a bright or bold lip colour is simply out of the question. This is something I've always disregarded - I've always worn whatever I want. Friend and family have often asked how and why I wear bold colours and what gives me the confidence to do it. I thought I'd write and post and construct a video as to how I do it.

Whenever I wear a bold lip I keep the rest of my makeup minimal. Flawless complexion is what I go for alongside a clean eyelid (often using eyeliner), long fluffy lashes and a bold brow. This way I don't have to worry about my lips and eyes clashing as well as looking like I'm entering myself for a drag contest.

There are many bold colours to choose from. You have bold neutral colours such as dark browns or blacks, then bold bright colours such as blue, red, purple, etc. Just pick the one you're most comfortable to begin with. You have to remember, that whatever colour you pick, you can still use a neutral lipliner to ensure it doesn't bleed or become wonky through application.

This is probably the most important step. You have to remind yourself that you're wearing makeup to please yourself and nobody else. If someone else doesn't like it, then oh well. For me, wearing a bold lip is empowering, to me it radiates some of my personality. Yes, I love a nude, who doesn't - but sometimes its good to be fun and experiment. At the end of the day it's makeup and it washes off, to anyone who says you shouldn't wear it - f*ck them, wear what you want and what makes you happy.
