I'm a self confessed lipstick addict, and with drawers full to the brim with lipstick products I just love to sport different looks for different occasions. However as of late there's been a combination of two products that I've been wearing lately which create the most gorgeous everyday lip and for me is the perfect lip duo, and naturally I just had to share with you!
To line my lips I've been loving MAC Edge to Edge which is described as a dirty blue pink, with cool undertones. I start by lining the shape of my lips and slightly over lining the bottom and cupids bow to enhance the shape. I tend not to go too overboard with lining my lips as you don't want it to look too obvious, but just enough to accentuate my pout. The colour is the perfect nude and with dusty pink tones this is very flattering on the lips once applied and matches my natural lip shade really well. creating a gorgeous base for a nude lip. Despite having a matte finish Edge to Edge applies really smoothly on the lips without dragging or drying and provides a really rich and opaque coverage acting as the perfect base for my lipstick.
Teamed with Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect KISSING Lipstick, which is described as a light-medium coral with warm undertones. I love how this applies on the lips, with a luminous sheen that doesn't look glossy at all but rather leaves a satin finish. Bitch Perfect is one of those lipsticks that instantly plums the appearance of the lips leaving them looking healthier, fuller and more hydrated.
The lip liner and lipstick made the most gorgeous duo and are such a unique nude combination and make a difference to the likes of Velvet Teddy, Whirl and Soar combinations. Overall I am really loving this combination, when worn together this duo creates an effortless look that helps to complete any makeup look whether an everyday nude or a neutral to accompany a smokey eye - it's just such a versatile pairing. I love just how easy this is to apply, and it's one of those combinations that you doesn't require too much effort like a red lip, but instead can take a matter of minutes to perfect.
I'd love to know what's your perfect lip duo.
