A triple fashion risk today friends...a tucked in blouse AND bright red lips AND pairing red and pink! I've been dying to try the red lips trend for a while, but of course fear held me back. I've always been a pretty 'au natural' gal when it comes to make-up but I am consciously trying to break out of my rut a little. I've admired this trend on Steffy's Pros and Cons and Lost in the Haze - they both do it so beautifully. Plus I felt like it was a little bit of a fun tribute to my grandma... So I gathered up my 6 MAC empties in exchange for a free lipstick (I've always loved how MAC offers this program!). The girl helped me pick out Lady Bug, a sheer orangey-red lipstick.
Mmmmm, I think I like it. Sometimes I like it. Sometimes I felt a little clownish. Walk into a bad lighting situation with this stuff on and you may never wear red again :) Regardless, I'm glad I tried it because pushing myself is what leads to growth and self-confidence and maybe even - a signature look!
I decided to wear my bold red look with a pink button-up, cause I kind of love this colour mix trend too. My black accessories were my attempt to 'tone things down' - ha ha, I think that train left the station!

Tell me friends, what do you think of the red lips trend? What was the last beauty risk you took with your routine?
