Ouch! This Avant-Garde Pinterest Board Is Seriously Sharp

revlon_pinterest_2
One of the best things about Pinterest is that you can create your own little (or big) world. Office rules of proper dress, makeup, and style don't apply when you pick and pin your favorite images. You can challenge your viewers, and yourself, with the boldest, baddest looks possible, and no one's going to second-guess all that boundary-defying behavior.

So, when we partnered with Revlon to find the best boards out there, we just had to bring up the beauty board created by makeup artist, crafter, and self-described "dreamer" Nicola Gavins of Edmonton, Alberta. The Canadian pinner is drawn to innovative, inspiring runway and editorial images that veer toward the atypical, conceptual, and awesomely avant-garde. Of course, we also dig the fact that this professional makeup artist pays serious attention to beauty fundamentals. Even with her cutting-edge taste, Gavins' pins show that she knows even the most challenging look starts with the right, lush lip.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Pink Pop, $7.99, available at Revlon.
