Supposedly, wearing super dark lipstick makes your lips look thinner. I'm not too sure about that, since mine still look pretty gigantic here, and I feel like the bold color calls attention to them even more. You see, I have a major complex about my lips, because I still picture them during my awkward stage, over braces and crooked teeth, before I was allowed to wax or thread anything at all. Let's just say no one escapes childhood without some battle scars and this big-lip complex is one of mine. Over time I've learned to kind of embrace them and just live with it (no choice, really). I even paint them in bright colors sometimes, although I swear I feel like this when I do. They've actually become as much of an accessory as anything else - paint them pink and it's like hi, summer! But paint them a moody dark brown and this outfit is instantly winterized.
