Building Your Wardrobe: The Essentials

images via 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

I always say that a woman's lip color can make or break an outfit. When dressing up an outfit, choosing the right lip shade is essential. Thinking a pair of boyfriend jeans and a white button up? A red lip is the way to go. An ultra-feminine summer dress? Try a pink pout! A navy blouse and white trousers? Add some pizzazz with this summer's "it" color, coral. And lastly, always make sure that the lip shade you wear compliments your skin's pigment. Experiment with different shades, and have some fun! And remember, don't be afraid of a little color :)

  1. All of these look perfect, but I think you should have included a guide to the perfect base - neutrals!

  4. That Cover girl pink looks so fun and affordable as it is a colour i'd probably be afraid to wear often. I am usually a nude lipsticker myself!

  5. It's funny to say this but I was never a huge lipstick fan until just recently and now, I can't get enough! I love spicing up every outfit with a bit of color! :)

  10. What a great recap! I am such a baby when it comes to lipstick color. It's pretty much nude 24/7. I need to get with it!

  15. I need to try the whole bright lip thing again. I've tried it a couple of times and end up taking it off immediately b/c it never seems to look right on me! I may have to try one of these shades you are recommending! x

  17. Love this post, Lauren! My lip colour collection is pretty limited thus far but I feel so much more put together with a swipe of colour. And I can't deny that I'm a big sucker for pretty lipstick packaging!

    Have a great Monday!

  19. I have been super obsessed with Maybelline's Coral Crush lipstick lately (not sure which line, but it's a square tube). I seriously wear it every day! But I definitely want to check out Nars heat wave now too!

  20. I'm trying to move out of my comfort zone by adding a little more mattes into my routine as opposed to my usual sheer gloss. Definitely takes some getting used to but thanks for sharing some great suggestions!

  21. I don't wear lip stick. I keep it simple with a shimmy lip gloss. But I totally wish I could pull off hot pink. I think it's so sassy and can really jazz up an outfit.
