I’m not super daring when it comes to lipsticks.
To be honest, rocking a colored pout is still a new thing for me – young Glendaly wouldn’t dare have the confidence to rock a bold, colored lip. Once I fell hard into the blogging/vlogging world, I started noticing how rocking a pretty pout brought me feelings of empowerment. It makes me feel like a woman, and I love that feeling.
If you’ve read my previous post, Orange is the New Black, you would know that the week I decided to commit to this blog, I found a free blogging class in the city. It came into my life at the most perfect time, and I thank the Universe everyday for bringing that opportunity into my life. The teacher, Melrose, who is now a good friend of mine, was the inspiration behind that post. She gave me an exercise that influenced me into rocking my “Orange Dream” lippie by ELF. I loved that post so much that I decided to style another outfit around a lip color.
I bought this purple lipstick, Shameless by Revlon, a few months back, and it’s sad to say that I’ve only worn it twice. It’s a beautiful color, but one that makes me a bit nervous since it’s so bold. Nonetheless, I decided to give it a go and styled this outfit.
To keep the lipstick my ‘statement piece,’ I went with an all black ensemble. I mixed up the textures of black, giving the outfit some dimension. I threw on my amethyst necklace from my Etsy shop to compliment my lip color, and added shorties underneath my dress as a safety measure.
I love the mysterious vibe purple lips radiate – I though it was only right to bring out my floppy hat to embody that.
I hope y’all are having a wonderful Friday.
Cheers to the weekend!
