Gosh, red lipstick is hard to pull off sometimes, right? Finding the right shade of red is the first challenge, but then I feel like the entire time you’re wearing it, you’re constantly nervous about whether it’s migrated outside your lip line, onto your teeth, or onto whatever you’re wearing. It’s hard to relax when you’re wearing a red lip. I’m always on high alert.
So needless to say, I was terrified when Julie told me she wanted to try something bold, and subsequently retrieved the loudest, brightest red lipstick out of her makeup palette. I’m pretty sure I looked horrified. But when Julie is having a beauty ‘vision’, you don’t question it. You just go with it. You close your eyes and let her make a masterpiece.
Behold… Julie’s signature cat eye liner with a super-mega-bright lip… yes you can pull off both at the same time 🙂
