💋Happy National Lipstick Day!💄 Although I have over four dozen lipsticks 🙈, I carry around only a handful in my purse everyday.
Yea, “only”. Perhaps I’m being extra carrying around more than one, but sometimes, a girl just wants options 💁🏻♀️
These are a few of my go-to shades:
@marcjacobsbeauty Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick // Color: 270 Purr-fect (no longer sold, but 292 Sugar High is close) // As seen on me in this photo
@tartecosmetics Lippie Lingerie Matte Lip Tint // Color: Exposed (My all-time favorite)
@urbandecaycosmetics Vice Lipstick // Color: Safe Word – Comfort Matte: neutral nude-pink
@urbandecaycosmetics Vice Lipstick // Color: Carnal – Comfort Matte: medium warm nude
@maccosmetics Satin Lipstick // Color: Mocha – peachy yellow brown
@tartecosmetics Tarteist™ Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint // Color: Festival – nude mauve
I’m also dying to try Charlotte Tilbury (@ctilburymakeup) Matte Revolution Lipstick // Color: Pillow Talk – nude pink
@narsissist Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil // Color: Walkyrie – warm coral red creme // Pair with the @maccosmetics Lip Pencil in Mahogany and you’ll feel extra glam. // Note that this is my go-to dark color with just enough red and brown to make a statement, but still slightly natural looking thanks to the coral undertones
As you can tell, I love pinky nude lipsticks, especially in a matte finish since matte photographs well. My lips are naturally dark or pigmented. Since I love playing with my eye shadow, sometimes, neutralizing my natural lip color simply compliments the look.
Now, I don’t wear lipstick everyday, but sometimes a good lip color is all you need to get that extra boost of confidence before walking out of the front door.
Don’t forget that in order for lipstick to work, it’s important to exfoliate your lips. I love @freshbeauty’s Sugar Lip Polish Exfoliator. I try to use this at least once a week.
Moisturizing your lips is just as important. My favorite lip balm is by @eosproducts since it glides on so smoothly and I think the round shape is super fun and makes it easy to find in your purse!
What’s your favorite lipstick brand? What are your go-to colors?
