There’s something fun and old-fashioned about coordinating perfectly your makeup and outfit. It’s kind of like when women in the ’50s and ’60s would make sure to wear the same shade of nail polish and lipstick — but much better because a dress is easier to take off than nail color.
This not-quite-orange not-quite-red shade is happy and energizing and draws attention right to your mouth. Which is great if you have dark eye circles due to staying up too late re-watching season five of Breaking Bad.
Pink frosted lips are reminiscent of both Malibu Barbie and out of touch grandmas. That’s why they’re perfect.
Berry is a universally flattering shade, great for light and dark skin tones. And it makes you look like you just finished eating a raspberry popsicle without actually having to. (Because that’s not a popular flavor and probably hard to track down, not because of calories.)
Nude lips are basically the anti-makeup. But the absence of color — even on dark skin— looks fresh and not as mannequin-like as you’d think.
Coral’s a tricky shade because it can look orange, and you don’t want to have orange lips. Or do you?
Striking red is definitely the most punk rock of all lipstick colors. Pair it with a safety pin dress and you can basically start calling yourself Siouxsie Sioux.
It’s physically impossible to be sad with hot pink lipstick on. Ask Nicki Minaj. Also, this outfit is very Stella McCartney and I’m proud of that.
