Beauty Buzz

Holding an event such as last nights Met Gala and adding a large dose of famed women, we are bound to have some fashion and beauty inspirations! We browsed through the 120+ photos of the affair admiring all the lovely and handsomely dressed attendees (to be posted) but we also noticed interestingly a common hue of dark crimson lips on many of the stylish women of hollywood! We are loving this new twist to the statement lip! 

Don't be afraid! 
Yes, It is a bold and scary I'm sure to most, colour to wear. But oh so chic if worn correctly! 
If you need more time to adjust, try this come fall season. Or for those anxious to add this colour to their make up bags, rock it this spring/summer on a night out! 
Adding highlights of bronzer will make your skin glow and bring you away from feeling too goth/punk that pale skin and dark makeup may make you think of. 
Remember when wearing a bold lip as such, try to keep makeup on other areas of the face as neutral as possible.  

Take points from Jessica Alba, Camilla Belle, Lana Del Rey, and the always stunning Kate Bosworth who all perfected this trending crimson in hues of deep reds (easiest to try/wear for the first time) browns and purples (for the more daring)!
