Random Lip Combo!

Once again, I think I have discovered my perfect tailored lip colour and I LOVE it! I think it's the way forward and works well with my new hair colour :) I have been so confused lately and have had to change the way I wear my make up to cater for my darker locks!



In photo order (see below) - I have applied Maybelline watershine diamonds in shade 100 pure diamonds for moisture, it's just a sheer shimmery colour, then I used Mac Hue to nude my lips out, then I applied Max Factor English Rose a gorgeous frosty pink to "pinken" my lips a little.



I finished the look off with this pinky lipliner, I have no clue where it's from or what shade it is, but I would describe it as a deep rosey pink.


On the rest of my face I have on, BB tinted moisturiser, Boing undereye concealer, Barry M bronzer, and I had applied some Nars Gina blush in the morning which has kind of rubbed off. On my eyes I just have lash stiletto mascara and some mac carbon smudged into my upper lash line, I also blended a TINY bit of carbon into the crease, so it looks a little grey. I also fix +'d!

I think it helps warm up my face? it kind of takes away from the harshness of my hair - I think so anyway :)



What do you think? Do you mix and match several lippies like I do to achieve your perfect colour for the day :) ?

GiGi said...

I always mix/match. I think"tailored" is the perfect word!

Diarella said...

Unfortunately, I don' t like this colour on your lips with mac, I think it's heavy .. But I like your photo, where u are wearing only English rose, it's on the right :)

bubblegarm said...

@Gigi it's the way to go, tailored colours :)

@Diarella yes I like English rose on it's own too, it's just gorgeous! But I love it even more mixed :)

xx

Diarella said...

maybe this lipliner is too dark for me? Anyway, that' s just my opinion :)

tina_mbc said...

Beautiful (as always..;) )! I think it works very well with the hair-colour, but not because it's harsh: imo, it compliments the slight exotic look...;)
I too try l/s over l/s sometimes, but I should experiment some more...

bubblegarm said...

@diarella yeh maybe, it is quite dark :) but that was the look i was going for or i would have used oak like i usually do :)

bubblegarm said...

@tina yeh u def should experiment, we probably have tons of unique colours just waiting to be found lol :) x

*SweetestSinSheroon* said...

this lipcolor definitely takes the harshness away from you.. but the liner seems a bit too dark in my opinion..

I've never custom made lipcolour like this - It seems like a lot of effort to go to, but the results speak for themselves - you look great - so maybe I should try it! x

Hi beautiful! I love the combination. I'm also a big fan of mixing lipsticks to suit my needs, and this rosy combination suits your complexion and hair perfectly. Glad to hear that you're getting used to the hair colour, I think it looks amazing on you!

Dye-A-Graham said...

I love your hair wavy/curly...it just looks beautiful! So pretty. Nice lip combo, too.

Gamaki78 said...

In my opinion this is your most flattering look so far. I am in love with your darker hair, infact you've inspired me to darker (blondes always want to be brown, brunettes always want to be blonde,right?) I like a bit of color on your lips, it brightens your whole face.

Love it! :)

bubblegarm said...
