PRETTY PERKS #13. SPRING LIP SHADES.








Spring is here and we are still trudging through light snow and battling against ice cold winds - but I have come to the conclusion - 'There is no such thing as bad weather - just bad attitude' - Ladies I have had an epiphany, even though it is bleak and cold outside I will bring spring out in myself through fashion and beauty woohoo!


So here we go 'Pop lip' - we have mentioned this phrase a few times on LLP and here it occurs again. All over the catwalk for s/s13 we saw models with minimal make up but a striking, bright pop lip, I absolutely love this look as it is so easy to achieve.

I have recently fallen in love with these two lip sticks Estee Lauder Pure Colour Long Lasting Lipstick in Melon and Mac Cosmetics in Ravishing. They are both of a similar colour but give a slightly different effect, the Estee Lauder lipstick leaves you with a slightly glossier finish, where as the Mac lipstick is more of a matte look but both look stunning. If you suffer with slightly dry of chapped lips it would be better to go for a glossy lip stick as it will help keep your lips nourished and conditioned.

Below I am wearing the Estee Lauder, Melon, here I only applied one coat and as you can see it still looks quite natural. As these lipsticks also have slightly creamy tones I would definitely apply at least two or more layers onto the lips to really get that bold look.


A great aspect of wearing a bright lip colour as well is that it really does give you depth to your look - adding a fierce pop to your outfit. Someone once said to me 'If you have a great handbag and a great lip colour no one will care what you are wearing' and I don't think this is bad advice. So if your not feeling to inspired by your outfit whack on a bright spring colour and your ready to go!
