Have you ever heard the rule that "whenever you wear a smoky-eye makeup you have to wear nude lipstick"? I usually ignore that rule, but today I decided to give it a try! I really like how having the lips more subtle allows the eyes to really pop!

Do you ever follow the smoky-eye-with-nude-lips rule? Do you wear nude lipstick at all?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this pink dress:

  2. I've tried nude lips from time to time, but I generally enjoy letting them go bold!

    I love your little fish dress and the stripey cardi, too cute!
