Spring is upon us and lately, I’ve been gearing towards a more fresh-faced makeup look. knowing that I will be doing more colourful looks this spring/summer, I thought I’d share my current go-to makeup look + my favourite lip colour at the moment.
Keeping within the ‘fresh face’ theme, for me, that is clean looking skin + a subtle/bright coloured lipstick. For example, switching from a deep red lip colour to a nude lip makes the biggest difference in anyone’s look with minimal effort. With that being said I’ve rediscovered a lip item that I’ve had in my drawer and haven’t put it down since.
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick “07 Nude-ist”
The formula of Rouge Edition is the reason why I think this is perfect for spring: It does not dry matte, but once you apply – gives a nourishing, matte finish. A velvet finish if you will.
For me, sometimes I may feel like I don’t want the heaviness of a traditional liquid lipstick, however, I still want a matte-looking lipstick. This lipstick is right in between.
Pigmentation: This is another reason why I love it. Though it may not be to someone else’s ideal, I’d say it is sheer to buildable. Once you apply, it’ll give a sheer amount coverage but since the texture is very creamy, this allows you to add more coverage to your desire without build up.
The shade I have is “07 Nude-ist”. This one, in particular, is super versatile and through my eyes, a universal colour – bright, yet subtle.
Depending on what look I’m going for, I like to use a lip liner here and there but when I’m in a rush I simply run this across the centre of my lips and gently blend in with my fingers.
All in all: This has become a lipstick I always have to carry in my makeup bag. Whether it’s when I’m travelling or if I need a something on the lips but don’t know which lipstick to go for. This is a must have.
