Red, White, and Blue Beauty (Minus the Nail Art)-------
I want to make the “lip selfie” a thing. Blame it on my constant craving to experiment with the ever-expanding spectrum of lipsticks on the market. On the day I snapped this photo, my hair was particularly white (and not its usual plavender). When paired with Jin Soon’s Cool Blue nail lacquer and Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in La Fascinante, I wound up with a look I’ve dubbed “unintentional patriotism.” If your hair happens to be platinum, this lipstick-mani combo is an easy beauty boost that channels the 4th of July spirit (without resorting to tacky nail art—#sorrynotsorry). For an added dose of Americana, don some denim, fringe, or—the obvious—stars and stripes.
