I love a bright lip. I love doing them on shoots and I love it when I see girls wearing bright colours out and about on the street. I’m always recommending it to people – wear a bright lip, anyone can wear colour and it will instantly lift your face or change your outfit. Why then why, do I not do it myself?? However much I love bright lipstick, I still don’t put it on me. However, that is changing with my new resolution, I am going to take a dose of my own medicine and wear bright lips!
A little easing in is required, something I quite often recommend as well – try a bright gloss first you’ll often hear me say if trying to convince someone to wear a red for example. My easing in comes in the form of Ilia’s Lip Conditioner in Bang Bang. It is a sheer red that is bright enough for all to see, but not a full on block of colour. Application is easy, as is maintenance – having to regularly touch-up is something else that can stop me wearing colour. You can apply Bang Bang straight from the bullet and don’t need to be as precise as you would with a denser colour. It wears really well, almost a bit like a stain and you can reapply with ease like a gloss.
I’m doing well with the colour and liking it a lot. Still working myself up the neon brights of spring although I do have Ilia’s Neon Angel ……. a bright pink that will definitely show.
