A Few of My Favorite Unconventional Lipsticks + Tips On How To Wear Them

Unless you were born gravitating toward bold or alternative makeup styles, at some point in your life you’ve probably wistfully gazed at an out-of-the-ordinary lip color and thought “ugh, I wish I could wear that.” Maybe you feel like it’s too daring for you, maybe you work in a conservative environment or have people in your life that would make rude remarks about your choices, or possibly it’s the concern I hear all the time “I’m too old for that.” Um, first of all, you’re not. You can wear whatever makes you feel good about yourself at any age, provided it’s on your own time. That’s true of all of the other reasons people have for not wearing what they want to wear. At the end of the day, it’s not that big of a deal, makeup washes off. But something that is a big deal is you feeling confident and powerful enough to wear the things that you love, that show the world who you are. Clearly I have some strong feelings about makeup, and trust me, I could go on about this for quite awhile, but that’s not the point of this post. Today I’m sharing a round up of some of my favorite unconventional shades of lipstick and lip gloss in hopes of helping you find something that you’ll love. I’ll also share some of my tips for wearing unconventional colors that will be helpful whether you’re a dabbler or a first-timer in these bold hues.

Lipsticks Most Likely to be Hiding in my Handbag

We all have those lipsticks that never seem to make it back out of our bags once they go in. The one we search our stash for only to find it hiding in a purse or a pocket later. Rather than sharing my favorite lipsticks (could I even narrow it down?!), I’m sharing the lipsticks I reach for in a hurry, the über wearable ones that I know I can always rely on, and the lipsticks I just can’t seem to stay away from. It’s kind of a parade of neutral pinks and browns, but there are a few wildcards in here that you might not expect. Here’s to the lipsticks that never let me down!
