On Wednesdays We Wear Black: A Look With Dirty Mind Cosmetics and BYS Cosmetics

Happy Wednesday, dear readers! I hope you've had a wonderful week so far!

We're all familiar with the iconic quote "On Wednesdays we wear pink!" thanks to the movie Mean Girls. Sixteen YEARS later (Yikes!), many of us still participate with this Plastics' rule, whether it be with our clothing, our nail polish, or our makeup. While I am a far cry from being Plastic, I still have fun with it from time to time. For today's blog post, I wanted to share one of my recent pink looks.

I can hear you all now: But Jen, your post title says "We Wear Black"!

While my makeup look may have originally started with me thinking pink, I couldn't resist adding a dark spin to my look. Let's check it out and I'll show you what I mean!

Here we are- a little bit pink with the far more obvious black! I love wearing black lipstick and honestly don't know why I don't wear it more often. I had other lippie plans when I first sat down to do my makeup, but I just wasn't feeling the original plan when it got down to the wire. Normally this would irritate me (I was really set in my plans, something that doesn't usually happen), but I'm glad it forced me to go a different direction. I know I'm biased, but black really does complete the look perfectly!

  1. I love pink and enjoy incorporating it in my eye look especially. But I don't have lips that could carry off black. What do your kids say when they see this? It's so striking.

  2. I love black, it’s my color everyday. But I introduce color through my bag and shoes so yes I own a few pink accessories

  3. Ooo I love this! And that eye look! Ahhh!
