So did you guys happen to know that I like kind of sort of have a little tiny small slight obsession type thing with color? I know, who knew right. When it comes to color I don’t discriminate – color on my nails, color for my lips and crazy amounts of board line obnoxious color all over my clothes, basically I live LIVE in living color and I’m not afraid who knows it. Plus I’m reviewing my new favorite nude lip and sharing so many great gift ideas or winter accessories so yeah, this post is basically a party! Read on!!!
A red lip is my signature, it has been for as long as I can remember! When I see myself without one, I often take a double take – Red Lipstick is to Color Me Courtney as Sprinkles are to Donuts – they’re just usually better with than without. BUT sometimes (only sometimes) less is more and occasionally (okay, rarely) I stray from my kisser comfort zone to make a whole new kind of statement. Thanks to my favorite Youtube (Its My Raye Raye) I’ve strayed from my habitual ways and broken the habit … today I’m stripping down to show you my true colors and a side of me you haven’t seen before.
Your Nude BFF – Once in a while a nude lip comes along that’s just TOO GOOD not to try – and the ColourPop collection by youtube mega babe, beauty guru and just overall life “GOALS” Its My Raye Raye totally falls into that category. Honestly, I bought the entire collection… just to support Raye (#fangirl?) – I don’t know her BUT she’s the only beauty youtube I follow and have heard through mutual friends in the industry how amazing of a person she is so I swiped my card (well I bought online, but whatever you get the point) as a sign of support – YOU GO GIRL! When her three products arrived I was SO PUMPED to try – but never thought they would make me change me tune… and they did just that.
Brace yourself for this next statement – for the next three days I wore nude lipstick on replay (I know, who am I) but that doesn’t mean there was a lack of color in my world – I mean come on guys, you know me better than that.
Although a red lip makes an amazing Pop of Color, so does an actual Colour Pop when paired with the perfect nudy lip, and what better time to take a walk on the bright side than winter? While everyone bundles up in black (boo) I like to stand out by making a statement in Winter Brights paired with this perfect nudey lip! The juxtaposition of the two – fun, bright cheery colors with a sultry, sassy nude lip like stingRAYE.
The perfect pop? Oh there are so many to choose from – a bright striped scarf, fun furry gloves, a multi colored hat, a color blocked gloves of both and a little bold bag!
Fun colored accesories are perfect for everyone – it will add a playful edge to an otherwise neutral colored outfit or bring another element of color to an already bright look! SO instead of layering your blacks grey’s and neutrals this Winter, give your goto’s a twist by daring the be bare on your lips while taking a walk on the bright side with your accessories!
