Lip edition: The perfect pink nude combo ❤️

Well hello to you my reader chums and happy Saturday! I have to admit when it comes to lipsticks I'm a total hoarder, out of all my makeup it's my biggest collection. I love trying out new shades to pair with eye looks, completely changing the finished make up especially throughout the different seasons. Today I'd like to share one of my newly discovered favourite lip combinations,  I describe as the perfect pink nude.

I've never really been one for using lip liner, I usually apply the lipstick firstly with a brush and then go straight over it directly from the bullet to get the full colour pay off. However, I recently picked up some gorgeous Kiko liners and have been obsessing over them. I find when worn by themselves or paired with a lipstick, the lasting power is incredible, keeping my lipstick in place for much longer.


My favourite combination at the minute is the Kiko lip liner shade in 315, a beautiful berry toned dusky pink paired with Mac's lipstick in 'Faux', this stunning pink nude colour. To create the look, I firstly outline my lips with the liner and blend it round the edges ensuring it doesn't look too different to the lipstick, only slightly defining it. Then I apply 'Faux' over the top and you're finished with fuller looking natural lips, enhanced nicely by the slight darkness of the liner.


Here's a few swatches ( Faux on the left and 315 on the right):


The final lip look:


I hope you enjoyed this lip edition post. What's your favourite lipstick combination?

Thank you for reading <3
