Valentines day is a fab excuse to get girly and glam!
Here are Sandra and Aleysha’s top 6 Valentines lipstick picks!
For an orangey red pout, we love Mac – Lady Danger. It’s a bright, firey colour that brightens up the face. Best paired with eyes more on the natural side, maybe a flick liner and lashes. It’s matte and stays put!
For a pink that’s not too bright, not too dark, we love Inglot 419 from the matte collection. Would look great on Valentines day with a light smokey eye and pink blush.
Tip: For more control over the shape of your lips, forget using the lipstick. Use a brush to take colour of the lipstick and brush on to lips. No need for lip liner!
A pastel baby pink is fresh and girly and goes great with any colour on the eyes! We love a dark purple eye with this! This one is Mac Saint Germain.
A classic red is always a good way to go. Try Limecrime gloss to matte in red velvet. It sticks like glue and doesn’t come off until you scrub with makeup remover! Definitely a great one for a vintage look. Try a vintage wave in the hair or hair up with a vintage roll.
Tip:For the perfect shape, go around lips with concealer using a thin brush.
This is the brightest of pinks and we love it! Mac – Candy yumyum. Also matte and best with tamed eye make up. Be fun with your hair though! Big curls would look fab.
For something a little different to the norm, try a light purple. This one is inglot 420. Looks amazing with a glow in the skin, so use some bronzer and highlighter with this look.
So whether you have a date with Mr.Grey and some popcorn, or the other half has something romantical planned, we hope you look glam with these lippy ideas and tips!
