Nude pout/LOTD

Hello my little puddings!

So, with the rain pelting down outside, and Broc walked and tired, I thought now was a good time to show you my nude lip.Lip of the day. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Finally huh?

Image

I have sooooo many pink and red shades of lipstick, that I invested in 2 shades to create a nude lip. (The nude lip is a very personal thing) some people like having it very soft/blended out from the shape of the lips and no lip liner, whileย others still like it to be defined yet with the soft colours, I guess I fall in to that category.

I love the soft colour itself, but want to still have definition blah blah blah. So, I bought a L’oreal lipstick (Nude ingenue/501) and a cheap miss sporty lipstick in the shade “I’m sweet/007”. As well as a lip liner by Rimmel in “Tiramisu/050”

Image

Image

It looks quite purple here, but it’s a light/medium warm brown hinted nude colour in real life. ๐Ÿ™‚

Image

I love the packaging of this L’oreal lipstick! Probably part of the reason I bought it to be honest ๐Ÿ˜‰

Image

This is the Miss sporty “I’m sweet” It’s in a plain navy blue bullet. Very simple looking. The shade is quite a pinky nude, and very light when applied. Perfect for layering it over other colours, (oh and it smells of watermelon, which I didn’t expect. Yummy!)

Image

I swatched both colours, the miss sporty at the top, and the L’oreal at the bottom. You can see very clearly the difference in shades and base tones to these two colours. But when worked together magic happens. I’m not sure I’d wear the miss sporty “I’m sweet” on it’s own?? It is pale, and might be hard to work with by itself.

Image

I used the Rimmel lip liner to outline my lips, and fill in the actual lip, about half way in. I then applied the L’oreal all over my lips. The texture is gorgeous, applies like a dream, and non drying at all… and at the moment I have problems with my lips in winter, even with lip balm on. (so sorry for some of the photos) ugh. But I was dying to do this nude lip, soooo ๐Ÿ™‚

Afterwards I glided the miss sporty over the centre of my bottom and top lip, almost like a highlight, and then blended.

Image

I forgot to apply lip gloss to finnish it off. I actually always have a matte lip, but I think the gloss adds a little oompf with a nude pout, so feel free to get some clear/crystal or even a soft coloured gloss to put over your lips when done. Infact, I might invest in a glittery/crystal gloss, and try this look again ๐Ÿ˜‰ Would anyone want to see the outcome when I do, let me know?!

Well, this is soooo toned down for me! I love pinks,red and vampy reds on my lips, but I have to say I think this nude may be a new addition to my look. I’ll have to wear it on a night out, with smokey bold eyes, I think the two would contrast and complement each other brilliantly. (I feel FOTD coming on soon!) ๐Ÿ˜‰

What do you think about nude lips? How would you wear them? Let me know in the comments!

Stay beautiful

The nude lip

Hello my lovelies, and how are we all?

Now, I don’t think I need to tell you all that I’m a bit obsessed with lipsticks. (I still need to do a post on my collection so far!) Anyway, I went to Superdrug and bought a few bits and bobs, to help me create a nude lip.

That’s right, a nude lip… I’m usually a bold red lip or pink in your face lip look. But lately I’ve been seeing nude lips more often, and I’ve started to really like them.

A nude lip is very wearable, with shades to suit every skin tone. It’s also a great way to help keep the focus on your eye makeup. A nude lip just sets off smokey eyes. (just look at Kim Kardashian)

Image

Image

Perhaps thats why many celebs rock the nude lip look! It’s effortlessly easy, and goes with any colour on your eyes. Not to mention it looks so glam when done right!

Image

Image

Even the lovely, Lady gaga has rocked a nude lip. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Image

Image

You can do a nude lip with a combination of, lip liner, lipstick and gloss for finnish. Or just the lipstick and gloss. I do think however by using a lip liner to define your natural lip line makes the nude lip pop against your skin tone, and help give definition. I mean, just because we are going for a nude lip, doesn’t mean you have to loose that sexy plump defined look either! YOU CAN HAVE BOTH, LADIES!!!! ๐Ÿ˜›

Image

I shall do a post on my little nude lip makeup haul soon, and then my own nude lip look too. So stay tuned for that! ๐Ÿ˜€

Eye shadow dilema! HELP!

Hey my puddings!

So, I’m having a last minute panic attack. haha. Ok, maybe that is a slight over exaggeration, but I’m having a colour crisis.

I’m having an early 21st cocktail party tomorrow evening, and I really want to try and do my eye makeup similar to this, gorgeous peach/brown cut crease.

Image

Now, I found this on we heart it, and so have NO IDEA who did this look/the blog it came from. Otherwise I would have just followed the link through, and see if they listed the colours they used.

I have all the colours for this look, except that gorgeous peachy colour on the inner corner of her eye. Isn’t ย it just divine?! ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, if anyone can help me and if you know of a brand that does a similar peachy colour I’d be so grateful. I’m going to head down to my local superdrug/boots tomorrow morning. It doesn’t matter wether it’s in a single pot, or part of a palette. (reasonable prices please!) And I’m in the UK, incase you don’t know. ๐Ÿ™‚ย

Juicy lips for spring/summer

Hey my lovely puddings,

I bought a new lipstick. (I know, like I need anymore right?) but it was only ยฃ1, so….it’s not that big of a deal. Ok. ๐Ÿ˜›

Only ยฃ1?! I hear you ask. This lipstick is by MUA. They have a large selection of colours and shades, all just for ยฃ1. How could I say no?

I picked up “Juicy” (shade 15) which is a lovely soft, matte peachy/coral colour. I thought it would be perfect to wear in spring and summer.

Image

The packaging is simple yet effective. It was very helpful that at the base of the bullet, there is a see through pot, which contains the same lipstick and colour. This made it very easy to see what each colour was like when they were all stacked up on the shelf. ๐Ÿ™‚

Image

Image

Image

In the bullet, the lipstick looks very bright, however once applied to my lips it was a very soft colour and could work for many skin tones, as it’s not an unforgiving, bright orangey coral.

Image

I’m usually a strict, reds and pinks lipstick lover, but I have to say when I swatched juicy on my hand, the colour was stunning. there’s a very, spring/summer, beach vibe with it. I also LOVE the name. ๐Ÿ˜›

I found I had to apply very generously, at least two coats for it to apply evenly and get the best result. Though for ยฃ1 what else could I expect. Apart from that, this lipstick has great colour pay off, and wasn’t at all drying on my lips either (which was a fabulous surprise) I seem to always get in my head that cheap = rubbish quality. And while with some makeup products that can be true, with MUA that is definitely not the case.

What do you think of the colour? Do you have any MUA lipsticks, if so what colours? ๐Ÿ˜€
