Warning - Extreme look ahead. I put this lip look on knowing I wasn't going to leave the house. Not that I wouldn't in blue lipstick (though I admit I haven't ever), but I didn't do the rest of my makeup to compliment it; I was merely mixing and experimenting on my lips. I'd love to hear from anybody with the confidence to rock the blue lips in public! Please comment <3
I finally got a little time to play with makeup tonight! After applying false eyelashes for the first time since don'tknowwhen, I flipped through the latest issue of Nylon (a magazine which I actually kind of find hipster/pretentious - I got the subscription as a GWP at some point) and once again felt really inspired by the edgy makeup looks within. Remember my Twiggy look? One of my favorites ever :D
This time, the look came from the runway (a designer I've never heard of - Mary Katrantzou Spring '12) and as I flipped to page 080 I found myself saying to my husband, "This girl makes a teal lip look fierce!" as I held up the magazine. The look was apparently achieved with a trio of MAC pigments blended together (Chartreuse, Hi-Def Cyan, and Teal, if you're wondering). I'm not really a fan of makeup in pigment form, and anyway I don't want to invest any further in weird lip colors when I've already got a few...

Speaking of which, I'm sure you can imagine my Lime Crime Mint To Be and Carousel Gloss in Loop de-Loop don't get much wear. But I got them to play, anyhow, and play I did. I think for cheaper if you'd like to play with the latest (see: Illamasqua Human Fundamentalism lipstick in Apocalips) teal lips trend, the look can be achieved by a nice coat of Mint To Be judiciously blended with a bit of Carousel Gloss in Loop de-Loop. Do you agree?
