Hello my lovelies,
As you may or may not know this is a topic close to my makeup up addict soul.My love for these 2 fundamentals cannot be matched by any other experience .Nothing feels better than the joy that a new lip liner and matching lippy brings when you have just handed over your sweet cash .My heart skips a beat for this kind of rush.
Lips are huge right now , thanks to our little friend Kylie J who seems to have adopted them as her signature trademark.Also we have her to balme for Velvet Teddy and Spice Lip liner from MAC, being constantly sold out and as difficult to get our hands on as the Golden Ticket in the quest for that Perfect Pout.Thanks for that Kylie , really I am so happy you bragged to the world about this liner for making your lips look fuller without the help of a bump here and a bump there courtesy of some needles thrown in to the mix.Your lies were the cause of my spice demise !
Lips are the bomb dot com and I for one never dare to leave the house without them.For me they are the new brows.Personally I think that this look can be achieved by anyone with the use of a few trusty products and a bit of pout practise to leave you with the perfect pucker .
These prodcust do not have to be high end like the MAC favoured by Kylie or the Charlotte Tilbury which the masses seem to covet at the mo mo.I like to mix it up between high end and affordable brands when it comes to drawing on the lips I WANT – not the lips that iI HAVE !Generally this involves using two liners one to outline the lip and over draw above the natural shape to create a fuller look. Then with a lighter pencil shade to colour in the whole lip making sure to blend the two shades together.Definitely this is a vital step in order to avoid that 90s look where the liner was a dark brown shade and the lip covered in a light pinky gloss.Unless of course that is the look that you are going for then happy days, be my guest and go on with your bad self .
Current brands that I am loving and abusing on a daily basis are MAC, NYX, Barry M and Maybelline.The colours of these vary and I always try to have a pencil that compliments the lipstick, lipstain or gloss I have chosen to smear all over this boca loca.
Below I have raided my lip makeup bag(Yes I do have a seperate bag just to house all of my lip products and no I am not ashamed of it).Yes I do have a problem with the sheer amounts of products I own . No I will never stop treating myself to a new lippy.Because why? Because I can and when all else fails , you just gotta grab your fave ruby red ,perfect peach or pretty pink and draw on a smile and get your shit together.Or at least appear to the world as if you do -because God Dammit , it has to be done!
