A Bold Statement
Grey times are being felt worldwide. COVID related pressures, closures and cancellations are giving us less and less opportunities to go out and frock up.
Brighten a grey day with a pop of zest on those lips of yours.
Perfect to jazz up any Zoom call or even a romantic trip to the dining room, an injection of fun to the pout will lighten the mood.
A dark plum perfect for winter or a melon to transport you to the Amalfi Coast trip you may have planned, we have you covered with it comes to a bold, statement lip.
New Age Nudes
If the Kardashian Klan has taught us anything, it’s the necessity of a fabulous nude lippy.
When a subtle statement is preferred rather than a heavy pigment, a nude lip is our go-to. Perfectly enhancing your natural tone while adding some texture, the nude lipstick is the final touch to the no make-up, make-up look.
Choosing the tone based upon your natural lip colour, make sure you’re not going too light or too dark as this may wash you out, give a ghosting halo effect.
The holy grail of nudes that works on almost every skin tone is the infamous Velvet Teddy by MAC Cosmetics. A cult beauty product that may just be the best nude out there.
Subtle & Sheer
For those whose main goal is hydration, the sheer and subtle lippy is perfect for you.
Fabulous for the cooler months, these tints, balms and sheer lipsticks are packed full of hydrators such as shea butter and will give you a subtle blush to the lips which is exceptionally feminine and beautiful.
While not considered a conventional and classic super pigmented lipstick, this range of lip products are most versatile when it comes to appropriate times of application. Before bed or before a meeting, add a subtle flush with a sheer lippy and celebrate National Lipstick Day with hydration!
