It is a fact universally known that the best way to complete a look is with a solid lippie, so we put together some outfit ideas for the everyday Susto girl and all her favorite lip shades! We picked three staple shades from three affordable brands and paired them with outfits for any occasion, from a casual day out to a formal evening!
Disclaimer: this post is not sponsored by any of the lip brands mentioned. They just happen to have some of our fave shades and formulas!
CASUAL DAY: MIAMI FEVER
The first look is based off of the Ofra Liquid Lipstick in the shade 'Miami Fever', which was a popular collab with youtuber KathleenLights. The lipstick is burnt orange or terracotta shade. Orange lipsticks can often be looked at to be quite loud, but because this color was "burnt", it makes the shade muted and thus, more wearable. Though this is not a typical everyday lippie color (some might associate more nude tones with this), it's still a good way to make a statement without being too outrageous. We paired this gorgeous color with an outfit that's just like it: not too flashy, not too simple either, and, above all else, comfortable!

LA Girl has been known for their affordable yet high-quality products; the Matte Flat Pigment Lip Gloss (which is an oxymoron, we're aware), is no exception. This might as well be a liquid lipstick! For this night out look, we chose the shade 'Backstage', which is a deep berry shade. Match it with dark colors like a deep green top and a dark grey pair of pants and you're ready to take on the town with the girls!

FORMAL: RED REVIVAL
Maybelline's 'Red Revival' is a bright, creamy ruby red that will have all eyes on you the second you put it on (we'd even bet it'd be a good dupe for the infamous Russian Red from Mac)! The drugstore brand's take on a classic lip color is the best way to make a statement at a formal event without being too loud. We decided to go simple with the look for this lip and paired it with a simple cream dress some black accessories, and a pop of gold to wrap up the whole look with flair.
