Beauty Basics: Love Your Lips


Time for, Love Your Lips!

Today we’re talking about lips. Loving your lips, shaping your lips, defining your lips, creating kissable lips to kiss with 😛

We’ve made it guys.. To the very end. 6 posts down, 6 weeks past, we smashed it! 😀


Let’s start with formula.. Are you wanting a Lipstick, Lip Gloss, Liquid Lipstick? etc

Now what colour are you feeling today?
Nude? Pink? Red? Purple?

Whatever colour is fitting your mood, you rock it boo!

Once you’ve found your formula and your colour of choice, we move onto finding a matching liner to compliment <3

When we’re looking at shaping and potentially ‘over-lining’ your lips, you’ve gotta ensure you get the perfect colour for your natural lip colour & skin tone to make sure it matches and suits perfectly without being too obvious.

If you’re lucky enough to find a lip liner that is the same colour, maybe a shade darker than your natural lip colour – Use that for shaping 🙂

I always start with the cupids bow and the outer border of your top lip before moving onto the bottom lip. The bottom lip typically doesn’t require that much shaping or re-shaping, the top lip needs to be your focus.



A good lip brush is going to be your BFF, especially when applying a red lipstick as shit can get messy & outta hand REAL QUICK.

My biggest lip brush hack is to actually use an angled eye liner or brow brush as they create the perfectly pointed cupids bow <3
