When is the perfect time to start taking care of your skin? Is it when you start to see wrinkles? When it starts to bother you? The answer, in my humble opinion, is right now. There is no age that you reach that it now […]Read More
So, maybe not exactly going bold! But for me, a bold lip is mega bold.
I am a self-confessed neutral make-up kind of girl, if I ever do play around with colour it tends to be on my eyes. I’m not sure why, but some time ago I decided I didn’t suit a bold lip, so my draws are just full of nudes (get your mind out of the gutter)
However, I do like to push boundaries in most areas of my life. I feel like that’s what has got me to where I am today, by taking chances and doing things out of my comfort zone. – you would think I was making a life changing decision, it’s only red lips!
I uploaded a short video on this look on my instagram – here! I had already done my foundation and eyebrows before I filmed, I feel like it does take up a lot of time and to put a full make up routine video together for under 1 minute, is a challenge in itself!
I loved how it turned out and I think it compliments my olive skin tone well. I’m just not sure I could wear a bold lip if I knew I was going to be out for the day, one little smudge of the lips and you’ve got red smeared across your face and teeth!
As this was something a little different for me, I didn’t want to invest a lot of money in a red lip liner, just in case it wasn’t for me, therefore I took it to the extreme and bought Primark Beauty lip liner, this only set me back £1 and I have to admit, I didn’t expect much from it however I was pleasantly surprised. This liner is more of a crayon textured liner and glides on the lips smooth with a narrow nib for precision. I would definitely purchase more of the Primark Beauty lip liners.
