Who doesn’t love a Bold Lip?

Hello My Lovelies,

I hope you’re all well! I took another short break from blogmas as I was finding myself becoming very sluggish, and I was finding it hard keeping up!

Anyway I’m back for now and I wanted to talk about one of my favourite looks during this season …

Bold Lips 

Now with my complexion it can be a little difficult finding the right ‘bold lip’. My go to is definitely more of a plum/red lippy as I think it suits me the best. 

My all time favourite lippy this year round is the Rimmel – Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick in shade 30. I feel like this colour is ‘My Bold Lip’ as its more purple than red, its such a gorgeous colour and this lipstick has to be one of my favourite high street formulas.

Lets continue with my next Rimmel – Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick which is in shade 19 which is more of a nude, but im still a huge fan of this for more of a basic make up look during this season.

Another lippy thats more on the nude side is the Nars Audacious lipstick in the shade Anna, which has such an amazing finish and goes on like a dream.

Again on the more purple/dark red scale we have my Rimmel moisture renew lippy in shade 500 diva Red, which was one of my bolder choices when I first got into makeup, I cant say that its my most reached for but I still think this colour is gorgeous for a bold lip make up look.

Last but not least we have a Barry M contender in the shade 121 Pillar Box Red. This is a real bold red which I dont believe works with my skintone but for someone with darker hair, this shade would be perfect!

    I LOVE a bold lip. I find that plums and purples are great for pale skin. Also a bright red works for me too!

      Plums are purples are normally perfect for me but I need to be really carfeul with red lips! xx

    I think my favourite here is Anna because it’s a bit more low key. I can’t get away with wearing bold lipstick it just doesn’t suit me at all! xxx

      I have to be really careful with a bold lip because some just make me look ill, I for sure feel your pain on that one! xx
