My go to lip colour is always nude and I love wearing it with a contour look but sometimes a statement lip can look really great. I love playing around with makeup and testing out new colours. I’m quite lucky to have an olive skin tone so can get away with quite a bright statement pink lip, the one I’m wearing here is MAC – speak louder in creme sheen. As you know from my other beauty posts, I usually wear matte lipstick but I absolutely love the gloss like consistency of this colour as the pigment is so strong making it last ages. I would always reccomend a good lipliner with such a bright pigmented lip colour, this keeps it in place better and stop it running. I’m wearing NARS – rosebud.
I don’t normally wear blusher for an everyday look but I think when wearing a pink lip, a subtle pink cheek softens the look and makes it look even better. I’m wearing NARS – luster. This is by far the best blusher I’ve tried, it has a great pigment without it being really bright and looking clown like. (which can easily happen so be careful) This blusher has a slight shimmer and I’m really loving the fresh dewy look at the moment so this blusher is great for that. It gives a natural kiss of blush to the cheeks that really completes this look. Don’t be afraid to wear this lip in autumn winter, it’s the perfect time to brighten things up with a bold lip.
Mallory is more of an English rose so feels this bright pink washes her out. She prefers going for a softer pink which looks amazing with her complextion. Although this colour isn’t as bold it definitely stands out and looks great again with a subtle pink cheek. This lip colour is By Terry – Terribly velvet rouge 3. By Terry do some great lipsticks that last hours, this one is matte but is super hydrating. It doesn’t leave your lips feeling dry at the end of the day like a lot of matte lipsticks do. Mallory’s blusher is Bobbi Brown – Santa Barbra 13. This colour is great for everyday and is such a pretty colour if you have a similar skin tone to this. It also has a slight shimmer giving it a really beautiful finish.
We hope you love our pink lips and have given you some inspo to try them yourself. Let us know how you get on! H xx
