When it comes to wearing nude lipsticks, I’ve become quite a grandma and can be pretty boring. My go to nudes are either Lancome L’absolu Rouge 6 or Chanel Rouge Coco 438 Suzanne – You see, I’ve found what works for me and I’m pretty loyal. However when it comes to bold red lips? Something happened where I went from wearing red lips every Friday, to being a permanent member of the nude gang. I have drawers of red lips, and since I decided to challenge myself last month to wear a red lip I found that I was always reaching for the Zoeva lipstick in Cooling Passion.
Zoeva lipstick in Cooling Passion is one of the most pigmented red lippies I’ve ever tried. It’s so creamy, moisturising and nourishing! I know the trend is to have matte lips right now, but I can’t follow that trend with these lip of mine that like to get super dry especially in the winter months.
How I tend to prep my lips, is to use a little Blistex Intensive Moisturizer before applying my makeup, so by the time I reach the last step which is applying lipstick. They are soft, supple, and moisturized! Next I go in with the MAC Chestnut lip liner,
followed by applying the lipstick straight from the bullet,
and lastly perfect the edges with a lip brush.
I’m so into reds again, so I’d love to know what’s your favourite lipsticks are as I need to add them into my collection.
