A week of unusual lip colours

In the first week of May, I decided to wear a different unusual lip colour every day for a week (excluding the weekend). I usually don’t wear super unusual lip colours to work, but I miss them sometimes, so I thought that now that I had a whole week where I didn’t have any classes to teach and I also had to work from home, I would wear a bunch of fun lip colours that I either hadn’t worn in a long time or that I’d never worn before. I actually really like how most of the looks turned out.

Here’s the make-up I wore Monday May 3. This is my least favourite look from the week. I just hadn’t worn that sky blue lipstick before, so I had to wear it for this week of unusual lip colours. I like a blue lip, but I prefer a darker blue; this lighter one is not very flattering.

Here’s the make-up I wore Tuesday May 4. This might be my favourite look of the week. I really like the plum black glossy lip paired with the most insanely stunning royal blue glitter eyeshadow.
