Neutrals and Neons

Monday, May 5, 2014

This is my third post for the #BloggersDoItBetter challenge, and this weeks topic is Neutrals and Neons. This was a bit tricky, but lately I have been loving a bright lip. So anytime I feel like wearing a bright lip, the eyes have be neutral. For a neutral eye the naked palettes are great, so I reached for the basics and used foxy all over the lid, with naked2 in the crease and used espresso from the Lorac pro palette to line my upper lid, put on my favorite mascara and the eyes were done.

Yesterday, I picked up the Benefit Go TropiCoral and of course had to put it to use immediately. I have only tried a few Benefit products so I figured this would be the best way to try a couple of them out. I used the high-beam highlighter, the cha-cha tint on the cheeks and then coralista blush on top. So  far I'm really like these products, but I still need to figure out how to blend them out better. For the lips I reach for my favorite lip color of the moment, NYC expert last lipstick in Forever Fuchsia. This is my go to look for a daytime bright lip.

How do you all wear bright lip colors?

Have a lovely day!

  3. Loving the bright colour! And I agree, it's definitely great to find balance between the bright lipstick and the neutral shades... You've got really nice hair and eyes by the way!
