It’s nice to see everyone back for Day 2 of my Lipstick Challenge!
If this is your first time visiting GrimmGirl and want to start at the beginning of this challenge please check out my original post Lipstick Challenge Day 1: Too Faced Unicorn. The point of this challenge is to wear a different color lipstick each day for 30 Days.
Today’s lipstick color is another fairly bold one. Not as unusual as a beautiful purple but still a fun color. NYX Cosmetics Liquid Suede Lipstick in Cherry Skies is gorgeous. I previously did a review on my thoughts on this lipstick in my post NYX Liquid Suede Cherry Skies Review. So if the color looks up your alley you can get a more in depth look at how I feel about this lipstick as a whole.
I love the deep burgundy red of this lipstick. I feel like it draws the eyes straight in and has a way of dressing up your makeup look. As you can see in this photo I have very minimal makeup on. My eyes are muted in eyeshadow color, no highlighter, no contour, no eyeliner, and no lashes but I feel like my look looks very put together and a big part of it is the fact that this lip color really dresses everything up.
I think this could be because we associate the color with things like strength, power, determination, romance, love, and courage. Seeing it as a lip color subconsciously gives us that vibe when we look at someone wearing that color. We think to ourselves, “That person seems confident.” It’s just a natural reaction. So the next time you need to appear confident might I suggest rocking a bold red?
What about you? Do you tend to think people wearing red lipstick are more confident?
