How To: The Bold Red and Purple Autumn Lip
My favourite lip is a bold lip. It looks better in photos, it oozes confidence and it can make you feel like a goddess. So heres how I get it..
I do my whole usual face routine for this video, so I’ve listed all of the products and you can also buy them directly from the images below. But remember, you dont necessarily need these products, just use anything you have similar.
To start with, I’m wearing my new Nicole Biker Sweat from Missguided which I’m loving for the ribbed details to the shoulders. They appear to have sold out of the white, but its here in the black. Also, still absolutely in love with my new desk from Tontine Wood design. I just swoon over it every time I come back into my bedroom
I start off with prepping my face with some Optrex eye drops, as my eyes get so tired from the computer 24/7. I add some Eve Lom Serum and some Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream as it is literally just the most amazing combination for hydrating the skin, before applying a mixture of the Burberry Fresh Glow Foundation in Porcelain and Dior Forever Foundation in 010, as the sheerness and dewyness of the fresh glow mixed with the higher coverage and finish of the Dior Forever is a combo I am loving! I use the Dior Foundation Brush to blend that into the skin, making sure that no brush strokes are visible afterwards.
And here is the best part. I lined my lips first with the deep plum of Mac Nightmoth Lipliner before filling in the centre third with Mac Cherry Lip Pencil. I then go over the outside of the lips, over the nightmoth pencil with the Limecrime Poisonberry Lipstick but any deep purple will do, before filling in the centre of the lips with Mac Russian Red Lipstick. You just need to keep reapplying the red and the purple over each other until you get a seamless ombre from red to purple.
What do you think? Will you dare to go purple this Autumn/Winter?
