Lip Colours


I realized that there is mainly three categories for lip colours; Nudes, Pinks and Bold colours so I decided to show my favourite combination for each 'category' and how I like to mix products to get the perfect colours!

Nude

First up is my nude lip, I love a nude lip on a everyday basis. It's simple and easy and provides a little more excitement around your lips but without noticeably screaming out that you have a lipstick on. Contradicting what I've just said, the nude I've chosen today is quite dark but still somehow appears natural and sophisticated.

First I apply Avon's Lip Liner Glimmerstick in 'Mystery Mauve'


When I have filled in my lips with the lip liner, I apply Lancome's Colour Fever Lipstick in shade 216 on top


Lastly I pop Lancome's juicy tube in shade 22, to finish off the look


And tah dah! That's the 'nude' and 'natural' look finished!

Pink and Flirty

Next up is the pink lip. This is my personal favourite lip colour. I can easily wear this to school and work. If I ever just want a little bit more colour to add to my dull lips then this instantly brightens them up and sweetens my look.

For this look I don't feel the need to use a lipliner, but of course if you would like to then go ahead and apply that first. For me I start straight away with the lipstick. The combination that I've been obsessed lately are these two products below, they have been my holy grail recently.

Here I'm applying Revlon's Colourburst Lip Butter in the shade 090 Sweet Tart. This is such a beautiful colour and really compliments my fair skin.


And what I've found has been the perfect lip gloss for this lip butter is Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipgloss in the shade 12 Pink Afterglow. 


Bold and Feisty

A bold and loud lip colour is perfect for parties or any night time event you may be attending. I love to wear a bright lip colour if I've not got much time to get ready or if I'm too tired to do a intricate eye shadow look. Wearing a bold lip colour instantly makes it look like you've put in the time and effort even if it's only that and a little bit of concealer that you're wearing. So for me, who may as well be crowned the Queen of lateness, this is perfect for those times when I'm to look presentable but have slept in (as usual).

For a bold lipstick I feel that you always need a lip liner, just to keep it contained on to your lips and not to allow it to go walkies all over your face. So here I start by outlining then filling in my lips with Maybelline's Colorsensational lip liner in the shade 547 'Pleasure Me Red' 


Rimmel's Kate Moss Lipstick in the shade 111 'Kiss of Life' is the perfect bright red and this lipstick lasts forever. I wore it on christmas day and despite me eating for the whole day, at night the colour was still evidently there, it hadn't budged from my lips at all.


I think for a bold colour it's quite nice to keep it matte, it adds to the effect. But if I felt I wanted the lip slightly more casual I would probably add Elf's Hypershine Gloss in D17 'Vixen' to give add that glistened look.


Here are all the products I used for these three looks:

Nude and Natural

Pink and Flirty

Bold and Feisty
