I know the say a red lippy is a staple colour in every makeup bag. Contrary to popular belief (mine that is) a bold purple lip has always been my go-to shade to amp up a dull look.
My all-time favourite purple lippy has be Rebel by MAC. It is a satin finish which means it gives your lips a little bit of moisture, yet still maintains its opaque vibrancy.
However, today I decided to go with Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in ‘L.U.V’. Any time I wear this shade it always seems to turn heads. I think the contrasting colours between my ice-blonde hair and the striking purple compliment each other. I really became a huge fan of liquid lipsticks while living in Dubai. The extreme all year round made it next to impossible wear any other formula but a liquid lipstick. Don’t be fooled by the colour of the tube as it does appear a bright shade than it actually applies. Don’t you just hate when that happens!
What is your go-to or ‘pick-me-up’ shade of lippy to brighten up your look?
