I’m a minimalist when it comes to makeup. I tend to prefer a more natural look, except when it comes to my lips. There’s nothing I love more than a bright and bold lipstick — especially a red one. Since red lipstick can be a very sexy look I suggest keeping the eye makeup to a minimum.
In order from the top…
1) Yves Saint Laurent ‘Rouge Pur Couture – Vernis a Levres’ Glossy Stain in #8 Orange De Chine /// This lip stain stays put and doesn’t dry out your lips. This shade has a touch of orange, but not too much. I would also like to try it in a more natural pink shade.
2) Yves Saint Laurent ‘Rouge Pur Couture’ Lip Color in #13 Le Orange /// It’s a bright orange tinted red that looks amazing on pale girls like myself.
3) Nars ‘Heat Wave’ semi matte lipstick /// It’s a long lasting matte red that is easy to apply and doesn’t feather. It’s truly one of the only lipsticks that doesn’t need a lipliner. This is the perfect lipstick for daily wear.
4) Kevyn Aucoin Expert Lip Color, in Blood Roses /// This vampy shades takes me back to 90s. It’s like CLINIQUE’s famous ‘black honey’ only it’s much darker and true lipstick not a gloss.
