Hello ladies, today’s post is all about lips, lips and more LIPS. We’re all partial to a big, bright & bold lip in time for Summer. For today’s look I’ve decided to compliment the tan I managed to bag myself whilst out in Egypt and gone for a matte, perfect hot pink using Smashbox’s ‘Be Legendary’ Lipsticks in the shades ‘STYLIST’ and ‘TALK TO ME’, always Sharp Lip Liner and the Insta-Matte Lip Transformer.
Before I tell you how I created this look, can we just talk about the ‘always sharp’ lip liner please? It literally is just that. SHARP.
This liner features a tiny secret sharpener built into the cap which in turn, sharpens itself every time you twist the cap off!
GENIUS. Say bye bye to faffing around with sharpeners and blunt liners for good!
Okay, onto my technique for the look. I used the ‘always sharp’ clear lip liner to draw around my lips and just slightly over my natural outline too. I then took my Be legendary lippie in the shade ‘STYLIST’ first and applied a light coat all over. Straight over the top of that I then PACKED on the ‘TALK TO ME’ and rubbed my lips together to mix the two. Grabbing the liner again, this time to clean up the edges of my lips and then lastly I lightly dabbed the Insta-Matte Lip Transformer all over to create a clean all matte haven of pink on my lips! Unlike other lipstick mattifiers I’ve tried in the past, this one didn’t dry out the lipstick which meant NO CRACKING. Thank God, otherwise it would have had to come off within the first hour of wearing it but thankfully, I quite comfortably wore this all day!
The rest of my face was pretty much based around this lip look and I ended up with a very bronzey summer time glam. Head over to my Instagram page to see how you could win my Smashbox lip look!
