Keep Wearing Your Summer White…
…And keep the lips as intense and deep as you are!!
Think Pin Up
Backyard luaus and printed rompers–get all iconic with your summer look, and paint on a deep pout in a brilliant cherry shade!
Tinkling gold jewelry, kohl eyeliner, gusts of desert sand, mirages and camel caravans… Mmm, hmmmm… Channel your divine goddess and pair intense and sultry burgundy lips with accessories fit for a queen. Try Nars Semi Matte Lipstick in Scarlet Empress.
We’re thinking Grace Kelly in To Catch a Thief meets Marilyn in Some Like it Hot… Red lips meet rosy cheeks, summery fabrics, and just enough skin. Va VOOM!
Tools For Perfection
Have a good and dense concealer handy for perfecting your lip line and for quality control post lunch & coffee break.
Instead of using your finger to apply the concealer, use a brush like Make Up Forever Precision Lip Brush for a clean line and skillful smudge buster.
Try a lip stain instead of a thick cream or matte lipstick. The stain will be more wear proof, won’t dry out your lips, and will feel lighter and airier.
Last But Not Least…
…Go for it! Ladies, let’s take a cue from this totally fun and free-spirited look from Playboy. It is the season of fun after all, so live up these final weeks of summer, and embrace your bold and brazen inner diva!Feat. image via Zoë Battles
