The New Power Suit

Beyonce said it best in her newest song “Who Runs the World? Girls!” Today, women are becoming more influential and dominant in the workforce. First comes the power, then comes the power suit. In the March 2012 Glamour issue, New York and Company flaunts their newest collection of suits in bold and bright colors. I love the idea of straying from the generic black and drab gray but we have to remember, with bold color, comes bold makeup.

To pull off a power suit, you have to match it with a power lip. Just because you could be rocking a hot pink blazer, doesn’t mean you have to tone it down with a nude lip or even, heaven forbid, just chapstick. My advice is to not shy away from taking from either side of the color wheel. A hot pink lip with an orange suit would be dynamite and stop traffic on your way to the office. You definitely don’t have to match the two factors with each other because that’s a little much but it’s time to stop shying away from contrasting colors and making the goal to match. Branch out with the trend and take advantage of a time for risk.

Although I strongly advice to keep the lips as strong as the suit, I do think you have to go easy on the eyes then. Keep it simple on the lids with a taupe or gold but feel free to be generous with the mascara. The look conveys confidence and authority so don’t forget to use the best accessory us girls have: a smile!
