Hey YA’LL (that phrase is on the mind – currently sat in Paris with a few Texans). I’ve been meaning to put up this post for a while simply because I found a groove in my daily make up bag that works so well – thought I’d share in case you love it too. Nothing super fancy or creative just my standard I’m-in-a-rush-to-work type thing that’s either a nude lip look or red lip look.
My 2014 beauty mantra has been all about experimenting with bold lip colours. This year I ventured in to the world of unusual (for me) shades like deep purples, blackened plums and a shade I once said I would never wear on my lips- reddish browns.
This year will see a lot of changes for me — I’m moving back to England! So excited to be in London again and with that comes an awesome promotion with the company I love and the chance to see my friends again. WHO’S EXCITED?!
With this new found excitement and life change, I’ve been experimenting a bit more about what I consider my “signature beauty look”. Hit ‘read more’ to see which products are helping me get this look!
Matte lipsticks have long since been my jam. I’m talking, Stila’s All Day Liquid Lipstick, Nars’ Velvet Matte Pencils andShu Uemura’s My Dear Matte Lipsticks – all offering a prestige pout that’s stamped with a colourful approval.
Revlon’s Colorburst Matte Balms brought me a ton of joy with their silky finish and bold, beautiful colours but now their’s a new, affordable collection in town and I’m all swoons.
Enter Maybelline’s new Creamy Matte collection and boy are they just that. Creamy lippies in the most insatiable range of colours. I often say this when I’m really loving a product — these are so freakin’ good I want to eat em’.
Canada’s been graced with eight shades of pinks, nudes and reds (gutted the wine shade isn’t available here). Check out my absolute faves below.
Lust for Blush
Do you even know how hard it is for an olive skinned girl to find a nude lipstick that doesn’t wash her out? This shade is effortless on any complexion. So much love <3
Siren in Scarlet
Of course red is always my lipstick wardrobe of choice and this shade is pretty perfect.
