July 29th is National Lipstick Day, and to celebrate we thought we'd extol some of the virtues of lipstick. Latest beauty trends always seem to revolve around a series of artistic skills, but let's be honest, not everyone is privileged enough to posses these skills. Contouring? Baking? Cat eyes? Smoky eyes? Graphic eyeliner? These things always look fierce and fabulous when you see them done as if by magic on Instagram and Pinterest, but somehow when you try them on yourself you look like a post-apocalyptic panda bear. We get it. We’ve been there. And if you can’t get Kajol’s perfect kajal, it’s ok! Don’t panic. Lipstick is your new best friend. It’s simple, it’s easy, and looks great with coloured skin. A bold lip looks best with subtle eyes, so if eyeliner isn’t your thing, perhaps consider a pretty pink lipstick, or a bright red to polish off your look. Summer is a great time for lip colour, so celebrate National Lipstick Day and experiment as much as you’d like!
