If art & design school taught is one useful thing, it’s that hues of orange and red look great with blue. And while you can translate that using jeans and a top, the ladies of DT are huge fans of throwing the pop color on our lips! We’ve whipped up combinations of our favorite lipsticks and our favorite jeans to show you how makeup and denim can work together in perfect harmony.

Poppy King, the creative genius behind the brand, has a wide range of lipsticks and glosses to suit everyone especially with her newest creation, Jean Queen lipstick in Denim Pink and Lip gloss in Denim Pink.
You may not necessarily need a lip color to go with your denim but come Spring/Summer you will definitely need some kind of pink in your way too blue wardrobe. Because lipstick or lipgloss is just like putting on your jeans- you absolutely don’t go anywhere without it.
You can visit the site for more information and to make your purchases but here is a little bit of what they say:
“The Ultimate lip color to wear with jeans! Jean Queen is a lovingly created special pink that offsets the blue in the denim and lights up your whole face at the same time. Special emollients and moisturizing ingredients provide a super silky feel on the lips and just the right amount of shine to contrast with the very matte nature of denim. The lipstick is super sheer and glides on for that pouty stain look.”
Don’t you just have to have it? Yessssss.
It’s pure JEANIOUS! Hail to the (Poppy) King and the (lipstick) Queen.
