From erotic to intimidating
By Tania Arora, Staff Writer
Guys might be thinking that maybe my mood swings happen only during my period, and they might think that I dress up only because I want to look hot and steal the limelight. Well, yes, that’s all true, but there’s more to it than that. When I walk into a room full of people, I love to play with their minds. I love to take control of their impression of me; I want them to perceive the impression I want. Can you relate to this, girl?
Out of 10,000 plus looks and lip shades, it isn’t easy to decide on the one that I want to wear any given day. It all depends on my mood. Let me break down my moods, and the lip colours that match.
On date night, when I know the night doesn’t end after the meal, I go for nothing lighter than blood red. To me, a bold red is like a green traffic light signal, used to pass on the message: go! You know what I mean.
When my inner soul is loudly shouting out “be cautious of me, I will eat you alive,” that is when I wear the darkest of my shades. Ranging from grey, blue, coffee brown, and black—I’ll smudge it all.
Rosy and pretty
On the days when the goddess in me is blooming and feeling pretty, I’ll wear shades of pink. Pink represents beauty to me and has been historically (maybe incorrectly) associated with women. So, why not use pink to beautify these lips.
One of those rowdy days
Smoky eyes are the most bomb trend in the makeup world. On one of those days, when the brunette in me is two shots of tequila down and screaming at me to put on my best show, I’ll go for smoky eyes and pair them up with a lip shade no darker than nude. That is my look for cocktails, parties, and sometimes date nights too. Who doesn’t love experimenting?
There are days when I am in no mood at all, and on those days glossy lips are at my rescue. Often, I’m too tired to decide my actual mood—therefore, I am in no mood. But I still want you to look at my lips.
Lip balm or no colour is for when I’m feeling like I don’t care if you look at me or not—or, if as usual, I am late for my class.
