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…

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.

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.

I’ve really been LOVING the orange lip trend, here I’m pictured wearing the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Audacious. It’s such a beautiful colour & compliments this eye look beautifully 🙂

For the eyes I used Maybellines Diamond Glow Quad in Coral Drama!! Don’t you just love these colours? I used the peachy orange shade all over the lids & the pink in the crease for definition 🙂

Real Techniques Core Collection

The Real Techniques brushes, designed by Samantha Chapman; a professional makeup artist known as one half of the Pixiwoo sisters on YouTube, first created the Real Techniques brush line to bring a professional finish to your makeup at home and from the high street. The Real Techniques ‘Core Collection’ is one of many collections Sam has designed specifically in mind to give an easy flawless finish to any makeup look, anywhere, anytime.

About the brushes

  • The Real Techniques brushes are made with synthetic bristles, making them extra soft, compared to other makeup brushes I’ve used, and easier to create a flawless look. With the bristles being synthetic it also means they’re cruelty free.
  • Each collection or individual brush is colour-coded, orange brushes are for a flawless base, purple for enhanced eyes and pink for the perfect finish. As well as each brush being colour-coded they are also cut to the perfect shape of your hand making them easy to grip, allowing precise application and therefore a perfect finish to your makeup.
So, we know a little bit more about these fabulous brushes, but if you are inexperienced with using makeup brushes you may be wondering what products are suitable to use with these brushes. The answer to that question is any, these brushes are suitable for any product; powders, creams, liquids, mineral makeup, highlighter, shimmer, etc. the list is endless. Yes, the brushes may be labelled but it doesn’t mean you can’t experiment and use them for a different purpose, for example; I own the blush brush but I use it to contour, the purpose of these brushes are so flexible you can use them to what suits you best and I think that is one of the amazing things about Real Techniques.

Pictured above is the Real Techniques Core Collection; (from left to right) foundation brush, contour brush, detailer brush and the buffing brush.
The Core Collection retails at £21.99 here in the UK and were the first set of Real Techniques brushes I purchased about a year or so ago, to me this was the best choice as you have your face essentials in one kit. The Core Collection includes the 4 full-size brushes and the travel case;
  • pointed foundation brush: ideal for liquid foundation, the brush itself is quite small but allows for a precise application and is easy to use to build the foundation to your desired coverage.
  • contour brush: ideal for highlighter or bronzing powder to create a contour and soft finish to your makeup look.
  • detailer brush: a small precise brush which can be used for multi-purpose, e.g. conceal problem areas or use with lipstick to create precise, long-lasting definition and shape to your lips.
  • buffing brush: can also be used for liquid foundation, powders or mineral makeup, this brush creates a full coverage application.
  • the brush case is ideal for travelling or transporting your makeup brushes as it protects them and keeps them safe as well as doubling up as a stand (folds back on itself creating a stand).

My thoughts on the Core Collection

In my opinion the Real Techniques Core Collection is a very useful collection to have, especially if you are a massive fan of all things make up like myself. Not only are the brushes well designed, they’re also very well made. I have had my Real Techniques Core Collection brushes for over a year now, they have NEVER shed a single hair, they wash perfectly and are like brand new once washed, the best thing about them is that they are very affordable and worth ever penny as they are such good value for money.

It is safe to say that Samantha Chapman is a genius, she has brought the high street amazing products, and for people like me who are unable to afford high-end brands she has definitely delivered a high-end experience to our doorstep.

Overall I rate the Real Techniques Core Collection 5/5 as they live up to the hype, they deliver flawless results and are still going strong after more than a year of constant use. This also applies to the other Real Techniques brushes and collections, they are all designed and made very well. In my opinion; they are faultless.
