Hot Lips For Summer

By  | 

Colourful lips are back for Summer 2015.

For the past few years, pink, orange and red lips have been a rare sight to see but I’m already a huge fan of colourful lips so I’m so glad they’re back. Saying that, I still wear mine all year round!

You can make bright lips dressy up or dressy down, depends on your outfit. For me, when I’m wearing a red or a pink shade of lipstick, I feel like I’ve made that extra effort to get ready. It’s a different feeling to having a clear gloss on your lips, you somehow feel special and are ready to show the world what you’ve got (even though you might just be popping to the shop!) It’s wearing the lipstick for you and nobody else. It gives people confidence which I’m all for and if you want to wear red lips to the supermarket, then go for it. Life’s too short to be worried about what other people think!

Whatever colour lipstick you decide upon, make sure it stands out! Wear your sexy colour lips anywhere this Summer and be on-trend!

Here are a few steps to follow to prevent your lipstick wearing off during the day or night!

Step 1: Exfoliate your lips

This can be with a toothbrush or some sugar and honey then wipe off.

Step 2: Apply lip balm

Wait a few minutes for it to dry a little then blot with tissue.

Step 3: Apply a tiny bit of foundation

This helps the lipstick stay on longer.

Step 4: Choose your sexy colour

Pink? Red? Orange? Purple?

Step 5: Apply your lipstick 

Step 6 (optional): Use for finger to blend the colour into the corner of you lips

If you prefer, you can apply the lipstick to the corners on step 5.

Step 7 (optional): To make the lipstick last longer, try a lipstick with long-wearing balm at the end of the stick. 

Usually this is the opposite end of the lipstick tube.
