Hi there! Thank you so much for checking my blog. Your support is appreciated and I’m so glad you’re here. So many times I’m just in my bathroom experimenting with make up and I love it. I don’t always get the chance to do it because of my precious daughters’ need my attention but when I get the chance, I turn up and play with the colours I got. Just so you know, all opinions expressed are completely my own. Nobody is paying me to use their products are to talk about them. I bought it, I love it, I use it.
Why create your own lip colour?
I don’t know about you but I don’t always want to go out and buy a new lipstick simply because I need a colour that moment. In fact, I’m naturally a stingy person so I don’t like spending money. I’d rather invest creatively where my imagination can bring about something different. Turns out it’s actually easier to do than I ever thought.
The way I create a lip colour is very similar to highlighting and contouring my face. I prep my lip with a tint, I apply a base, I contour and then I highlight. I rub my lips and voila!
Below I created a video to better explain the way that I create this custom colour.
The lipsticks used in this video are
- Maybelline Bold Colorsational Midnight Blue 840,
- NYX Cosmetic Butter lipstick Licorice,
- Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm Sultry 225,
- Colorpop Ultra Matte liquid lipstick Flurries and
- Manna Kadar liquid lipstick Lucky.
The key is go in light and add as needed. Otherwise, it’ll end up all over your teeth.
I hope this video was helpful. What custom make up have you been experimenting with lately?
