So I have decided I am going to start reviewing more products in the New Year to give you an inside look of the latest 'Must Have' items.
I've decided to start my reviews with something to help out my lovely brides, lets talk lip products!
So this year has been the year of the nude with my brides, last year definitely showed more pink tones with MAC's Mehr taking the top spot.
I would say my absolute go to product has been Charlotte Tilbury's Lip Cheat Liner in the shade Pillow Talk rrp £16(www.charlottetilbury.com)
This liner has given me life, I personally use this liner all the time and its gorgeous. My daily lip look consists of this liner paired with Soap and Glory's Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss in the shade Candy Queen, I couldn't live without either of these now.
The texture is very different to any other lip liner's I have used, its waxy consistency gives it a great staying power and colour payoff which is a must for my brides!
My most used lipstick shade for 2018 has to be MAC's Velvet Teddy rrp £17.50 (www.maccosmetics.co.uk)
This color really is a classic, the formula is a gorgeous creamy matte, it glides on beautifully and has really good staying power like most MAC lipsticks. The good thing about this shade is it matches most skin tones and works well with pretty much any makeup look. Every girl should have a Velvet Teddy in their life!
Now onto lip gloss's, most of my brides know I love a glossy lip! I don't think I will ever be converted to a matte lip. For this years brides the main gloss seems to have been MAC's Prrr rrp £15.50 (www.maccosmetics.co.uk) it pairs perfectly with Velvet Teddy and a lot of my other nude shades too. It gives the lips as pretty sheen without being too sticky.
Lastly, how do I like to prep my brides lips? Especially with all the weather changes this year our lips have gone through a lot so I always make sure I have my Dr Paw Paw Original Balm rrp £7 (www.sallybeauty.co.uk) this stuff is a game changer and it does more than just work on the lips.. dry elbows? Paw Paw. Natural highlight for summer? Paw Paw. Flyaway hairs? Paw Paw. The list goes on!
