Ami Approved: Making a Bold Statement!





The perfect accessory can make an outfit, but the perfect lip color can bring it all together. This season, big, chunky statement necklaces are everywhere and one question I often receive is what lip color to wear with bright necklaces so that it doesn’t compete. Not only does introducing color close to your face add vibrancy and make things more interesting,  wearing a flattering color can completely brighten your complexion and wearing the perfect lip/necklace combo is the perfect way to do it!  Here are three examples!
Lovely Lavender
The sweet, muted lavender and blue undertones in this necklace need a little warming up! Try pairing it with a soft coral lip color like glominerals Royal Lip Crayon in countess coral, Lip Tint in clearly tango or Liquid Lips in romance for a summery look. Pop on a bit of Gloss in lilac luster to enhance the pretty pastel purple petals!

Bold Neon
The loud neon yellow and bright orange colors in this necklace call for a shade that is equally as punchy for your lips! My advice is to keep the rest of the outfit simple, and avoid trying to compete with the orange in the necklace by pairing it with a coral lip shade. Instead, mix it up and do a vibrant pink! glominerals Lipstick in treasure or Sheer Lipstick in fiji would be the perfect way to bring the attention back up to your pout!

Truly Turquoise
Turquoise is a color that works well with both a warm or a cool lip (think corals vs. pinks) so it’s a good idea to choose a color that utilizes both undertones!  Pair glominerals Sheer Lipstick in tahiti (a peachy pink) with Gloss in peony for a juicy watermelon shade lip combo!
