Spring Makeup | Get the Look

Spring is calling! I love looking at the latest / current beauty trends and one of my favourite looks to grace the Spring/Summer 2016 catwalks was the bright, bold lip colours. Everywhere I looked I saw statement lips paired with glowy ‘supermodel skin’.

This is a great look to recreate at home, with the lip colour being such a statement you don’t need to spend much time focusing on your eye makeup! I opted for more of an orange-red matte lip with a soft metallic eye and dewy skin. Something that’s becoming more and more popular by the day are liquid lipsticks and to get that statement lip they are perfect!

Liquid lipsticks are highly pigmented and they don’t leave a sticky film on the lips like a classic lipgloss would. They’re long-lasting and the coverage is buildable. Because they’re intended to last for hours, they can be on the drying side. With that in mind I would recommend prepping the lips first with a little lip balm. The liquid lipstick I used to create this look was by US brand Limecrime. I’ve listed all of the products I used below though you can absolutely sub some of these out for products you already have.
