I saw this really cool two-toned lip look on Pinterest the other day with a bright, glossy red on the upper lip and a fuchsia on the bottom.
So, so cool! (But totally impractical.)
Well…I guess if I walked around all day long with my mouth half open, LOL!
Imagine forgetting that you’re wearing it and accidentally smacking your lips together…
Oops! Hello, hot mess!
I wanted to try something similar, but more practical and wearable, yesterday, so I rutted around in my makeup drawer for ideas…
I thought that a creamy lipstick would migrate and move too much, but what about a bright long-wearing lippie like the Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipsticks? They’re super saturated liquid lipsticks with a matte finish, and they absolutely refuse to budge.
Ding-ding-ding! Winner, winner, chicken dinner! An idea started to form…
I applied the bright red shade, Raven, to my top lip with a lip brush, following it up (after Raven dried), and using a different lip brush (a clean one), with hot pink Ballet applied to my bottom lip.
What do ya think?
I know it’s not for everyone…but I think it’s pretty neat, especially if you’re feeling adventurous.
You could try a subtler version, keeping the red on your upper lip, but swapping the hot pink for a reddish coral like Hourglass Opaque Rouge Lipstick in Muse on the bottom…
The effect’s not quite as obvious, but if you look closely, you can see the two different shades.
Eh, it’s worth a try, right?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Happy hump day, fellow beauty lover!
Oh, have you heard about this? Becca is coming to Sephora stores (they’ve been available online at sephora.com, but now they’ll also be in stores).
Cat lady says SWEET! I hope the one by my house gets on board soon… I want to spend some quality time with the new Ultimate Eye Color Quads ($40 each).
