Makeup Monday: Two-Toned Trend
Some days, you feel like trying something funky with your makeup. And I don't mean funky in a Lady Gaga "artsy" way, but more like something fun and new, but still wearable and age-appropriate. To give your day-to-day makeup a little extra flair, try the two-toned lipstick trend. Yes, I am literally suggesting that you use two different lipsticks -- one on the top lip and one on the bottom. While it may seem a bit costume-y, I feel like when done with carefully chosen colors, the two-toned lipstick trend can be totally chic. Here I incorporated my two-toned lips with a ruddy-rose blush and very light eye makeup. I prepped my lips with concealer to ensure that both lip colors would show up bright and true. On my bottom lip I used Revlon's ColorBurst Matte Balm in "Standout," and Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics' LipTar in "Melange" for my top lip. Like I said, I think this look can be really understated and classy if you choose the right shades. I will definitely be rocking this trend as we head into the upcoming fall season. Now go play around with this trend! In other words, go put on some lipstick(s).
