Red lipstick is a universal classic color and has yet to go out of style. And I've been meaning to buy and wear this color, but every time when I draw this color onto my lips, I'm just so afraid of getting out from my room! I think, I can never pull off this look! It's too bold for me I guess? Or maybe it was just me? Or maybe bcuz I didn't know the right way how to apply it! hehe..
As much as I love to see people who can pull off the red lips look, and would love to try out the look, I think, it won't and can never look good on me! tskk. Hmm...I don't know la, but I still prefer to stick to my usual lip color; pink, orangey, brownish, nude, pale, soft red, and so on.. So, whenever I'm in doubt, I always go back to these usual favourite colors of mine.
It's much safer I think. (Oh, I'm such a boring person! Don't dare to try out different things! heee)
So anyway... the other day, while I was browsing some stuff at Topshop after work, the SA came to me and asked me to try out their make up. They have some new colors/stuff according to the SA. Oh, I do love their make up so much. It's really really awesome. (I'm gonna switch to this brand bit by bit!) So I tried different, different colors on my skin. I even tried their purple lipstick! And surprisingly, it looked good on me! I guess because I have a naturally pink/almost red lips, so..when I glide that purple color on my lips, it turned out to look nice with that two color combo, I think? Hmm..
I didn't buy the color though because I still look the "same" like any other make up look I tried before.. I said to her, I wanted to look something different. Something that I've never tried before..so she asked me a few questions, and suggested me The Red Lips Look, as it's the IN THING, she said. Well...I know and well aware about that, it's just that, I'm not the kind of person who would wear just about anything on the trend/fashion even if it won't and does not look good on me... But, she did ask me to try it first..
So yeah, I played around with the colors they have... I tried mostly red shades..
Well, I was alone and had no one to tell me whether I look okay or not. And I didn't want to buy something that I'm not sure of, that I would wear it again and again..although it just cost me about 40 plus.. I mean, why buy something that you REALLY unsure of! So yeah...I walked around the mall with that shocking red lips (it's kinda like a bit of orange too, I think..), and I noticed that every one who were near/noticed me, would glance at me, and leaving me feeling a bit of self conscious! haha. I don't know whether because it's too red and look SO weird on me...or because it's nice? (HA HA ;p)...maybe they didn't even realize about my lips, maybe it was something else and I'm just being so perasan and so paranoid and self conscious lebih lebih. LOL ;p
But...as soon as I entered the car (A'ai fetch me), he was kinda surprised with my look/make up (with that bright red lips and bronze powder I put on my face! huhu) and said it's kinda a bit too much!!! Hahaha! So there you go! That explains why the weird look I got just now? LOL. Okayyyy...no more red lips for me, I guess! ;p
Okay..now you be the judge! hehe
Oh well..can't really see I think? It's the only picture I took, and plus, the color has fade a bit by the time he arrived to fetch me... Ahhh...never mind! I have another photo of me wearing a red lipstick..and this time, it's REALLY red! hehe
This one! Heeee ;p
Does it match my earrings and my top? hehehe
I was trying out different look in my room, last time.. This was my attempt to look like zaman dahulu kala. (That explains the ugly bold eye brows. LOL) And yesss....I failed terribly! Heeee. Well actually, I got an invitation to attend a fashion show for MIFA or something..for the Raya Fashion Show, and the theme was "A Tribute to Saloma".
And the dress code was "Dress to the Era". It was really on short notice and I had nothing to wear and none of my clothes in my wardrobe can really suits the theme. So I thought of playing around with make up pulak lah... And tried to match the red lips with my top and earrings and shoes. But then, yeahh..I've failed terribly.. hahaha! ;p
Oh yeah, and I ended up not going to the event pun! haha. Well, not really because of my outfit nor make up...or whateverrr. It's because I was workingggg! Sobs... That's the thing I hate about working, because when you started working, there are so many events that you had to turn down as you're so busyy and got no time! Oh, such a bummer! tskk. Oh well...that's life, ain't it? Nothing's really pretty, Wany. Including your red lipstick! LOL. Apa kaitan.. ;p
So anyways...what do you think? Do I look okay with the red lips look? Or stick with this kinda make up? :)
A much simpler, nudy make up! hehe
Well....I think red lips would only look nice on special occasions, and not to be worn for a daily look, right? Hmm...I think, I'm still gonna brush up my skill for this red lips look again, till I won't look terrible...at least to my eyes! LOL. Cuz it's nice to change the style a bit, isn't it? hehe ^_^
Have a great day everyone!
