Summer is just round the corner, making it the perfect time to get bold! Whether it be switching your classic red lipstick for a different hue of red or going bolder and brighter, let this season be your chance of trying something new! I’ve put together some of my favourite affordable combos that will have you feeling summertime ready!
Tangerine Loving! I love absolutely love orange. I have everything from orange shoes, to nail polish, to dresses and bags, but have never been brave enough to try orange lipstick – until now! This season, hues of orange are totally in; so, I decided to team up two beautiful orange MAC lipsticks: Matte So Chaud and CB 96 Frost.
Fandango Purple! When it comes to affordable matte lip creams, Sleek Makeup is my go-to brand, so, I had to add this ‘Fandango Purple‘ to the mix. Despite not being lunch proof, this lip cream glides on effortlessly and dries down to a velvety matte colour that is perfect for the summer – making it a no-brainier for those who dare to be bold!
Usually, when it comes to creating a classic red lip, I tend to grab my MAC Ruby Woo lipstick. But this time, I decided to switch it up a little! Instead, I decided to combine my Max Factor Ruby Tuesday and add a hint of Barry M Loud Mouth Gloss in Diva as I’m crazy for glosses this season. This bold combo makes a great alternative from my usual.
Metallic dreaming! If you were to pick any season to try out metallic lipsticks, it would definitely be this season. So, when I walked into Beauty Base and found the cheapest metallic looking lipstick, I nearly died and went to makeup heaven. Not only is this affordable, it’s creamy, smooth and glides on so perfectly. LA Girl Cosmetics you’ve killed me with this £1.15 Matte Deep Bronze lipstick!!!
This season, is all about the eyes and when your eyes are bold, all you need to pair it off is a nude lip. Since my last nude lipstick post, I’ve completely perfected the perfect nude in four steps: line my lips with MAC mahogany lip liner, fill my lips with NYX Simply Nude in Exposed, for the centre of my lips NYX Chunky Dunky in Peach Fuzzy, and then finish with LA Girl Nude lip gloss.
And there are so many other lipstick combo’s to try out this season, what will be your signature lipstick look this summer?
