The Holiday Makeup Mistake You May Be Making

15

blue lipstickIt has come to my attention that people are making a huge holiday makeup mistake, and for the love of all things pure and good, it needs to stop. I'm talking about non-lip-colored lipstick. It's not only inappropriate, it's just kind of gross. Do not, I repeat, do not wear silver, gold, green, or blue lipstick this season. You may think that you're being festive but, in fact, you're being ridiculous.

It's time you heard the truth. Your odd-colored lips make you look like a Garbage Pail Kid and not a little unlike someone who may or may not have chronic herpes, I mean, "cold sores." No one wants to kiss your green mouth under the mistletoe, trust. They want to take you in the bathroom, sit you down on the toilet, and rub that disgusting tint off your lips with the coarse tissues and Costco hand soap your mom stocks in the guest powder room.

The only time odd-colored lipstick is acceptable is during Zombiecon or Halloween. You have those two events during the year to cake on the silver gloss and proudly wear it around town. But once November 1 rolls around, it's time to pack up the weird shades for another 364 days.

Don't you dare try to force it as "holiday cheer" or any of that bull crap. It won't fly. Your blue lips make you look like you're choking on crudites, your green lips make you look like you're dying of chlorosis, your silver lips make you look like you just ate a dozen dimes, and your gold lips make you look like you just did some very bad things to an Oscar statue.

So ladies (and gentlemen), please, please do not wear bizarre lip colors in the name of Christmas, or Hanukkah, or anything else. It's a definite fashion "don't." OK. Now that we've had this talk, I feel better. Don't you? So go out and get yerself something perty and pink to put on your pout and pucker up! 'Tis the season to party.

If you happen to like silver, gold, green, and/or blue lip color, please explain why.

I'm probably your target audience, because I just read that silver lipstick exists, and my first instinct is "OMG I want that."

Plus, I'm in the "it's festive" camp. My fingernails are never all one color, and I like to do fun things when I have a holiday to blame it on. I hope it doesn't totally ruin your Christmas if you spy me out and about. :)

Who do you see wearing "non-lip-colored" lipstick? It's not something I've ever seen outside of a wacky occasion such as Halloween or a rave back in the day.



I never knew it was such a common look that it was necessary to address the public about it in an attempt to make it stop.



But, what do I know? As someone who promotes fake ponytails, "ombre" hair dye, and paper eye lashes, but is a hater of hair feathers and weird lipstick, you come off as confusing to me. (And, very pushy.)

Isn't the point of lipstick to make them non-lip colored? I mean, come on bright red, shades of pink and maroon are "normal" lipstick colors.

Hilarious!!!

I think automatically wearing red lipstick with everything for the holidays is a mistake too. Red lips do not always go with everything, and if it's not just the right shade of red for the wearer it looks awful and garish. It drives me crazy when women just whip out the red lipstick for anything special-occasion. I like red lipstick, don't get me wrong, but it's not the only thing you can do to your face to dress up a little bit.

Wow. Take a step back and a deep breath lol. I don't like the look either, but then again I've never seen anyone wear non lip colored lipstick in real life before. 


 


Also, why go after people with cold sores? Yes, we know it's actually herpes, why did you say it like you did? I'm honestly confused.

I would wear silver to a party! LOL. But not in a serious way.
