MUST HAVE SUMMER/SPRING LIP COLORS

image

fierce lips!

Hey guys!

I’m so excited because this is my first post for style cravings and because it’s a beauty related post! (Obviously!) I thought of what to write about and it hit me! Its spring!!! And in some months summer begins; why not introduce you guys to some fab colors that will keep the girls jealous and the guys wanting :)  but seriously though if you guys don’t have at least one of these colors in your makeup bag, you better run to the nearest drug store or cosmetic shop near you. I got an amazing model, Kae-Kae to help me out with some photos.

In my opinion I think no counter Attendant has to tell you what kind of lipstick or lip gloss you should wear, (yes! we all know all these counter attendants especially the ones at MAC  think their choices are the best things since slice bread!). You should be able to confidently choose what kind of lipstick/gloss you want to wear, based on what suits you. People can only recommend what kind of lipstick/gloss they think would be nice on you based on trends, colors etc.  For me I go with anything that looks good and edgy; although, different people have their own tastes and preferences.  This post is basically showing my “recommendations” for you fabulous ladies based on Trends and colors.

A lipstick comes in various textures among others we have: Matte, satin, lustres and cream sheen. Each texture obviously varies. You can choose any texture you love, whether it’s during the summer, winter or fall it doesn’t really matter. Lipsticks are like food to the lips  literally, the way the lipsticks  can transform your look and make your lips look pretty is ridiculously amazing… Okay! Okay! Guys I might be going way over my head now because I’m a lipstick freak but trust me when a lady finds the perfect lipstick she knows.

However, my must have lip colors for this season are:

NUDE SHADES

Nude shade for light skinned

These colours would go so well with dark skin

J.LO slays me every time she's on a Nude lip. she pulls it off so well, Notice how she added a top coat of lip gloss to give her lips that extra effect

Take a tip from Nicole, she does it perfectly. If it doesn’t complement or look like your skin tone then it’s not nude!

**Remember, with nude little is more. Don’t forget that the trick to pulling of a nude lip is by adding a top coat of lip-gloss.

N.B: Don’t mind that I’m using MAC, I personally just love the brand because it’s so diverse, there are a lot of varieties to choose from and it embraces women of all color. You can get dupes for these lipsticks from any usual drug store brand such as L’Oreal, cover girl, Maybelline etc they are absolutely good as well.

CORAL SHADES

You guys  should really know that Tom Ford Produces the best lipsticks ever, it might be on the high end side in terms of price but trust me its worth it. He’s new coral collection is all that and a bag of chips. Invest in a Tom Ford Lipstick and you’ll know it’s a good Investment. The best part of it is that this coral shades suit both light and Dark Skin.

Guys don’t be afraid to play with color this season, spice it up; create some Ombré, two toned lip, use colors like Orange and Neon if you like, but please always remember to keep it moderate and simple. Less is more.

KISSES!
