How To: Wear an Orange Lip ❤

Hi beauties 🌞

Since summer is finally here I’ve been switching up my lippys. I’ve been loving a bright orange lip, I think they look especially nice on people with pale skin.

If you’d like to know how to pull off an orange lip, then keep reading…

image

Base
♡ Make sure your base is flawless.
♡Conceal any imperfections.
♡ Contour/highlight as necessary!

Eyes
♡ You can keep the eyes quite simple with a bit of crease definition or winged liner.
♡ Or like myself, tie in the lip colour with the eyes. I went for a peachy pink eye.
♡ Start with a light, brightening shade on the lids & define the crease as desired.

image

Brows
♡ Make sure those brows are tamed & shaped, after all they do frame the face!
♡ As always I used my Benefit Gimme Brow.

Lips
♡ To get the best results line your lips with an orange lip liner & fill them in using the lipstick.
♡ This ensures a precise application & perfect lip.
♡ However, if you don’t have an orange lip liner you can always use a lip brush to apply the product for a precise application.

Let me know if you like this sort of post!

P.S Stay tuned on my blog for my 500 followers giveaway 🙂

wpid-photogrid_1435757610258.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yes, it may be quite pricey for a bronzer, but trust me, I’ve had this for a year (at least). If you want to know more about this product read my review, p.s. this is the same bronzer I used to review!

3. bareMinerals Original –  £26

wpid-photogrid_1435757562999.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This bareMinerals powder foundation is amazing. It wears so well & has a decent amount of coverage, can be built up to your desired coverage! Let me know if you’d like to see a review! 🙂

I have the shade ‘Light Vanilla’ 51. It’s the perfect shade & oh wow, my skin has never looked better. Needless to say I have used this nearly everyday since I bought it. ‘Like’ for a review! 🙂

You all know I love Taylor, so of course I love her perfume. Well, I do own pretty much all of them (oops!). I reviewed the original Wonderstruck perfume, check that out here! Review for this will be up in the near future 🙂

7. Real Techniques Buffing Brush – £20.99 (part of the Core Collection)

wpid-photogrid_1435757380062.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you’ve followed my blog from the beginning you’ll know I’m a huge fan of the Real Techniques brushes created by Pixiwoo! I adore this brush for foundation, it applies the product evenly & effortlessly.

wpid-photogrid_1435780144532.jpg

 

 

 

After the recommendation from Wayne Goss (GossMakeupArtist on YouTube) I took the plunge & bought this concealer. I haven’t looked back since it’s amazing. It’s so illuminating & covers pretty well too! 🙂

9. Sleek Makeup Rose Gold Blush – £4.49

wpid-photogrid_1435757431454.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For this fabulous low price these Sleek blushes are a steal. You get a massive amount of product which is highly pigmented. I think I’ll have this for the rest of my life.

So that wraps up my June favourites ☺. Let me know if you enjoy these posts, I love to hear your thoughts ♥

What have you been loving in June? ☺
