Naja Diamond, you’re InStyle.com’s Reader of the Week! Beauty blogger Naja Diamond of Laurel, Maryland had been loving the dark lip trend but wasn’t brave enough to try out the bold look herself until reading October’s “You Can Do: Vampy Lips.” Diamond reveals exclusively to InStyle.com, “Although I usually opt for a nude lip, there is something about a beautiful, bold lip that gave me unchartered confidence and instant glamour that is unlike anything else. I’ll definitely re-create this look whenever I want to stand out!”
