I love a person in lipstick.
It's beautiful, graceful, edgy and it always tastefully toes the line between sophisticated and cool.
I, however, loathe myself in bold lipstick. I either look like a toddler who had too much fun sitting at their mum's vanity or someone who tried to ∼find themselves∼ but ultimately failed.
I am dangerously boring when it comes to makeup. I found the desired outcome I wanted about four years ago and haven't looked back. That 'outcome' being, nude lips, shimmer on the eyelids and a cr*p load of bronzer EVERYWHERE.
Watch this how to keep your smile looking perfect all night. Post continues after video.
But in all honesty, it's getting a bit too boring. So I thought it would be a fun (and scary) challenge to make myself wear bold lipstick every day for a week.
TBH, I am of the belief that I can make absolutely anything work if I try hard enough (and boy did I try).
So here's what happened after wearing the boldest colours imaginable for a week.
Day 1: Black lipstick, 8/10.
