With my hair swept up and out of my face I usually like to add bold colors with the makeup, and today is no different. I’m sporting a braided back top-bun so naturally I started looking at all of my bold eye shadows and lipsticks. After scouring my collections I found this old jar of “Wet & Wild” loose silver glitter…score!
All it took was for me to stumble upon that glitter in order to decide that bold fuchsia is what I wanted to wear on my lips and I had just the color. I’ve only worn this lipstick once before and I don’t know why I haven’t made it a point to work it in since! From LUSH Cosmetics’ “Emotional Brilliance” makeup line is the “Passionate” lipstick that I wore today. It’s such a rich pink – you literally only need one layer of this stuff because a little goes such a long way with all the LUSH lipsticks. They’re made with pure pigments so essentially you’re just applying pure color to your lips and lids.
For such a bold look, this literally took almost zero effort. Since the lipstick and glitter are both bold enough to steal the show I didn’t have to add much of anything else. Just the necessities, liner, mascara and those brows of course. I used only my highlighter, “Feeling Younger/Looking Brighter” also by LUSH, to contour by adding a little to my cheekbones and brow bones. Then just the lightest feathering of blush and that’s it! No need to add harsh lines of bronzer and blush, let your eyes and lips take center stage with this one.
