Bold Bright Lips
Friday, 4 July 2014
In the Summer, sometimes the last thing I want to do is wear a lot of makeup. Especially when it's very warm and humid, it's a fine line between glowy and greasy! Some days the only thing for it, is to wear SPF, the biggest sunglasses I own and to look like I've made some effort, sport a bold lip. Here are my favourite brights. These are equally beautiful worn during the day to distract from a bare face or at night with admittedly a bit more makeup...
Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet #43 La Favorite is described as a coral shade but it comes out much more pink toned on my lips. I typically find matte formulas drying but this, while long lasting, is very comfortable to wear.
MAC Morange an amplified finish. I love wearing this in the Summer. A very orange toned red. It’s pigmented, bright and fun to wear. More often than not, I get all matchy matchy and pair it with Chanels Holiday nail polish.
For when I'm feeling brave NARS Schiap is a gorgeous bold pink with blue undertones. Extremely pigmented and another matte formula but doesn't feel heavy on the lips. This fades nicely to a pink stain.
Tom Ford Lip Colour 08 Flamingo matte yet this glides on and imparts a hint of a sheen with the most incredible warm mid-tone pink colour. And yes, yes I have been applying it from the other side so as not to ruin the TF embossing!
The bright lip colours I've been lovin' and not a peach toned shade in sight. Who am I? The heat must have gotten to me...
