Beauty Crush: Purple Lips

When it comes to makeup, I'm a diehard lipstick girl. Although I love a fantastic base and a strong brow, I always like to invest most of the look in a bold lipstick. My current rotation is the bright Lady Danger red by MAC and their intense pink Candy Yum Yum. Both finish the face like nothing else and are vibrant enough to be work day or night without looking over done. The beauty of a bold lip is that the rest of the face can be left relatively bare - which is fantastic if you're in a rush like I usually am, or having a long day and your face needs brightening up.

Lately I've been somewhat obsessed with strong purple lips - not as sassy as red or cute as pink. And just weird enough. It's kind of perfect timing because the newest collection from MAC cosmetics "Reel Sexy" features two of the most perfect purple lipsticks ever - Heroine and Pink Popcorn. The collection hits counters on Monday the 30th, and trust me I will be there at 10am to get these two. See you there!

Naturally you might as well pair this with a rich purple nail too. As traditional as it is, I love matching nails to lips - especially if the hue is a bit weird.
