Guest Post #6 || How to Complement Lipstick & Sunglasses

Hello, world.

The easiest way to look put together in an outfit is to coordinate the different pieces for a seamless look. The most obvious way to do so is to match your clothes to your shoes. For some, they like to match their nails to their accessories. I have even seen cases of women matching their lipstick to their shoes.

In todays post, I will be discussing a more unconventional way of coordinating an outfit. I will be talking about how you can match your lipstick to your sunglasses.

Look 1

<a href=””>Aqualillies For Tarte Limited Edition Glamazon Pure Performance 12-Hour Lipstick in Timeless</a> | $26

One of the latest trends is bright colors, and it hasnt been limited to just clothes. Bright sunglasses are everywhere now so how do you complement a shade like pastel blue? When it comes to brightly colored sunglasses, you want to avoid washing out your face. With an almost neon pink lipstick, people will be able to see your face, not just your shades.

Look 2

<a href=””>Chanel Gold Wire Rim Sunglasses</a> | $200
<a href=””>Bobbi Brown Bobbis Essentials Lip Color in Pink Mauve</a> | $25

On the flipside, if you opt for a more classic look with wire rim sunglasses, you dont want your makeup to overpower them. A rosy pink lipstick will keep the look soft to go hand-in-hand with your sunnies.

Look 3

<a href=””>Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Palm Beach</a> | $26

This look is a marriage of the above two looks. This look is for those of you who want to rock some statement sunglasses but dont want too bright or too dull of a lip. This is where the coral lipstick comes in. Coral is a sort of in-between; it isnt a bold red lip, it isnt a muted pink. It is just perfect.

I hope that this post has got you thinking about other pairings of sunglasses and lipstick. I also hope that you enjoyed this post. If you did, head on over to <a href=””>ExtraExtravagant</a>, my beauty and style blog, for more guides like this one.
