How To: 

Bright, Bold Lips




As the weather is getting a little warmer and the days become brighter (thank god!!) I am also going to start being a little more adventurous with my makeup. Brighter colours mainly, but I also fancy changing up my look every month or so.

Anyway, I will probably start with bold lips. I recently cleared out and sorted my makeup collection and found so many lipsticks and glosses of all different colours, even a really neon bright pink!

I probably won’t head straight for the neon, but a deep red or fresh spring pink will be a good start.

So, let’s get to it.

How to: Bright Lips Guide

PREPARATION

This goes for all lipstick to be honest. Cracked and dry lips will never give you that glamorous, luscious lip that you dream of. If you do have dry lips, never fear. You can easily create a lip scrub with just two ingredients. Grab some sugar and Vaseline, mix them together and gently rub the mix on your lips. Once removed, your lips will be softer, but make sure to use a good lip balm on them afterwards. I love all Burt’s Bees products and the cocoa butter ones, I can’t remember the name, but they smell so good! An alternative method is to buy a really (really) soft toothbrush. You can rub the bristles over your lips and get the same sort of effect, but just make sure you are really gentle with this one!

LINE YOUR LIPS 

I’m going to put this here, but to be honest, I wouldn’t blame you if you don’t take my advice. For one, I never line my lips. I only have one liner that I got in a goody bag from the clothes show; it’s never been used… However, lining your lips does make the look more professional and it does look good. Give it a go if you want.

APPLY

With bold colours, less is more. Apply colours using a lip brush for ultimate control.

CONFIDENCE

Finally, look like you wear bold colours all the time. With this look, confidence is key.
