Bright & Bold Inspired by Bo Kaap

To say I was inspired by our recent trip to Cape Town would be a huge understatement. The culture, the people, the vibes, the history – it was all amazing. One thing that I didn’t think would hit me as much were the bright & bold colors. If you know me at all, you know that I’m drawn to neutrals and greys and more desaturated aesthetics. But I think that might be changing ever so slightly.

One of the coolest places we visited in Cape Town was Bo Kaap. A charming neighborhood with a lot of rich history and culture, the streets are lined with colorful, bold and bright homes. Think Rainbow Row times 100000. As soon as I saw all of the colors, immediately started to feel inspired to try a brighter makeup look. Now, while you won’t find me in a purple eyeshadow or with a super rosy blush – one thing I love playing around with is my lipstick.

When I was introduced to the new shades of Physicians Formula’s Healthy Lip Velvet Liquid Lipstick, I knew a tutorial was coming your way. I am obsessed with the pinks, reds, corals and mauves and couldn’t wait to take a few shades for a test run.

Check out the quick tutorial below inspired by the colorful streets and bold hues from the new collection! Think glowy, bronze and warm…and super simple. Oh, and bright!
