How ’bout opaque, pastel pink lips? I hardly ever wear ’em. Actually…I never wear them, but that’s not because I don’t want to. They can look very striking and beautiful, especially on darker skin tones.
Buuuut,, I just can’t pull it off. Maybe I’m not high fashion enough.
A lot of the gals I see wearing pastel pink lips look like they just stepped off the pages of a magazine, but I feel like they make me look too cartoony, you know? Like a little girl who snuck into her my mother’s makeup bag and smeared pale pink lipstick all over her face, doh!
Plus, this one time when I was wearing MAC’s Viva Glam Nicki 2 Lipstick (an opaque cool-toned pinkish violet) and answered the door, the UPS guy said I looked like Lil’ Kim…and I’m pretty sure he was referring to the Kim way, way after the Crush on You era.
But heck, who knows? Maybe opaque pastel pink lips will be the next big thing to have a moment, like rose gold is having now, and everyone will be wearing them. I’ll just have to climb aboard the bandwagon and go with the flow.
You never know.
Your turn, buddy. What’s one type of makeup look you don’t wear often (or ever)? Spill those beans in the comments!
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Help me out here, babe. I’m trying to think of more video ideas. What kinds of videos would you like to see?
