A bold lip can truly be life changing. I was very much a simple pink gloss girl most of my life, and honestly didn’t give too much thought to my lip color in general. But I remember during one of my first trips to fashion week I was bunking with a bunch of blogger friends, one of them being Sophie Elkus. She was running late to a show, and didn’t have time to really do any makeup. So she just threw on some giant sunglasses, and applied a bold red lip before running out the door. On the way out of the show she decided to go ahead and snap a photo and threw it up on instagram (this was before insta was the overplanned and orchestrated monster it is today). Well it wound up going viral and being one of her most liked photos at the time…she’s also a total smokeshow so that probably had something to do with it too 😉 I don’t know why but that has always stuck with me as the moment I realized the power of a bold lip. It’s truly one of the easiest ways to pull a sophisticated look together even when you’re short on time. Cut to almost 4 years later I have a lip color obsession. But for today I’ve narrowed it down to my five current favorite shades I think every girl should have: A Deep Rose, Berry, Bright Pink, Mauve Nude, a Cherry Red.
