Makeup Myth Tested: Does RED LIPSTICK hide Dark Circles?

I recently saw this thing on social media claiming that red lipstick was the magic secret to concealing dark circles. I thought, "no way!".. red lipstick is so bright !! How could that even be possible? I mean how in the heck does that work? How do you go about blending that??!! I was full of questions and full of curiosity, and I had to try it for myself.

I intentionally did not watch or view the initial post as I did not want to be influenced. I wanted to do things my own way & find out if this thing really works not just for me, but for you, and for the average Joe Shmo. I went into this experiment totally blind, having not even the slightest clue as to what I was supposed to do.

Creating Versatility with Bold Pieces

Normally when I look in my closet and "have nothing to wear" (please, we all have PLENTY in there), I will do some online shopping or run down to the mall to get my fix. But, since my boyfriend and I are trying to save money for a house, sacrifices must be made-- those sacrifices being my shopping habits. So, being on a budget really forces me to be creative with my wardrobe.

I love bold pieces because they challenge me artistically. Those pieces that make me say to myself, "I don't really have anything to go with that," are always the first ones in my shopping cart. Daring, I know. Which, that may sound strange to you guys because y'all know I am all about simplicity and versatility. Well, yes, that is still true, but there are 4 basic rules I adhere to when working with bold pieces to make them... simple & versatile.
