Apply a touch of foundation to your lips before application, just so that your lips are nude in tone. This always helps me to increase the vividness of the colour on my lips. Then apply Lip Magnet to your lips in one coat – the flat, textured triangular shaped applicator enables application to be much easier and precise. Let the first coat dry before applying a second coat. Or if you would like to go for an ombre style, choose a shade that is lighter than the base coat and apply it to the centre of the lips. Pat this in with your middle finger to disperse the product and to create an ombre effect to the lips, from darker to the line and outer corners of the lips, to lighter in the centre.
My favourite shades
For that gorgeous mauve, purple toned matte lip, my favourite shade is 507. Extremely wearable for every day, just a touch more purple that the usual matte mauves we have all seemed to love for around 18 months now, and a perfect autumnal mauve hue. But for something bright and vivid, 302 is a stunning coral toned red with a wonderful vibrancy.
My perfect ombre combos
- Bright red Coral 302 base, bright coral 300 to the centre
- Deep mauve 507 base, deep nude pink 506 to the centre
- Deep red 402 base, bright red coral 302 to the centre
- Fuscia Pink 500 base, vibrant baby pink 502 to the centre
