FOTD | The Bright Lip

Sunday, 6 July 2014

I haven't done a makeup look in a long time and that's because I rarely change my makeup routine. I usually apply a different lipstick and that's about it. Most of the lipsticks I own are pretty safe tones ranging from pink to brown but I do have a few which push me out of my comfort zone, like the lipstick I'm wearing here. I bought this Barry M Lip Paint (151) quite some time ago but I've barely worn it probably as I've never felt like I could pull this look off.


That said, this lipstick is the perfect stand-out lip for summer but as it is so bright I kept the rest of my makeup very simple here. I applied a small amount of foundation to my skin and used a little NC42 concealer from MAC Pro Conceal and Correct Palette in Medium Deep for dark spots on my face. I then used the burnt coral shade from the MAC palette on the apples of my cheeks. I followed my usual routine for my brows and set them in place with a little Gimme Brow. I kept makeup on my eyes minimal, opting for just a little Thick & Fast mascara. I wanted a slight glow so highlighted my face with the brightest shade from Sleek Makeup Glo. I finished off by dusting some Ben Nye Banana Powder on my T-zone.

  3. I like the colour. It the colour i often look at in the shop and think who Would buy this colour. But know i know who and how good it looks on the right face.

    In summer i Hardly use make up. Maybe some mascara but never anything on the skin when it is Warm and Sunny.

    1. Haha, I've thought that too. It was an impulse purchase and it took me a while to wear this lipstick!

  7. Very nice!
    I don't wear makeup except occasionally, due to allergies. I have like one eyeliner, one shadow, one mascara, one blush, and 2 lipsticks that are barely ever worn. I wear tinted sunblock and pretend it's make-up, haha!

  14. I love this look on you Lesley, nice and simple. I like my makeup very minimal. I have just started trying to wear lipstick I am kind of scared of color! I did just buy the new Revlon lip balms matte in a purple and red color, so I will see how adventurous I get, lol!
