I am a firm believer that a good lip color can change your whole makeup look. So, I am super excited to be sharing my go-to lip colors with you all. These variations are really good for year round and can be tied together for a night out or to go run some errands. What I really love about the lip colors I have been using is that I can mix and match with them and they all blend really well together. I will go in detail about some of the products I mix together to create a perfect neutral pink & brown tone. I hardly ever go for a bold lip but when I do find a bold lip color I will be sure to share with you guys, especially with Christmas and New Years coming around. Which I still cannot believe we are almost in 2020.
NYX Suede ‘Stockholm’ – This an Ash Pink color and pairs perfectly with any matte liquid lipstick and matte lipsticks. If I am wanting a brighter lip color I will pair this with a more peachy pink lipstick or if I want a more neutral tone then I will pair this lip liner with a pink lipstick with brown undertones. There is even a matching lipstick to this lip liner, The Suede Stockholm Matte Lipstick.
NYX Slide On Lip Pencil ‘Bedrose’ – This super creamy lip liner truly matches the name it was given, it glides on nicely and could honestly be used as a lipstick. It is a soft nude pink with mauve undertones. I usually pair this with a pretty pink lipstick and lip gloss to give it an extra bit of shine.
Kylie Jenner ‘Koko K’ – This a beautiful light pink shade and just like the slide on lip pencil from NYX, this lip pencil glides on so nicely and can be worn alone or paired with a mauve or brown undertone creamy lipstick or matte lipstick. I will even sometimes do a more brown-pink lip liner like the MAC ‘Whirl’ and put this Koko K lip liner as the base color and pair it with a lip gloss to give me that Jessie James Decker lip look.
MAC Lip Pencil ‘Whirl’ – This is a “dirty rose” color which to me is a basically mauve but when I apply it, it has some brown undertones and that just may be because of my skin tone. This is my favorites and I often pair this with a variety of my lipsticks and glosses.
Milani Color Statement Lipstick ‘Dulce Carmelo’ – This a beautiful soft pink lipstick. You could wear this alone with a paired lip liner for soft finish or add your favorite gloss on top.
Milani Color Statement Matte Lipstick ‘Matte Naked’ – I love this color because it is super neutral and the matte gives it a soft finish if you want to go for that look. It is a mauve color with more pink undertones.
MAC Amplified Lipstick ‘Half n Half’ – My go to lipstick. It literally takes after it’s name half pink and half brown. It pairs with most if not all my lip liners because of it being a great mixture of both tones.
Morphe Creme Lipstick ‘Flirt’ – I cannot brag enough about Morphe because they are a great makeup brand with reasonably priced makeup. This lipstick is so beautiful and is described as a blush nude. If you really want that Jessie James Decker or J-Lo look, pair this lipstick with a slightly darker lip liner and light pink gloss.
These two lip glosses have a more pink clear look and can go over any lip color to add a shine:
MAC Lipglass ‘Love Nectar’ – A more peachy tone but still pairs beautifully with any lip color look. I have been using this gloss since high school.
Milani Keep It Full ‘Luminoso Lumineux’ – A pink tone that is supposed to give you fuller lips.
Another two options to add a more colorful gloss but still keep a neutral tone are:
My favorite combination lately has been the Mac ‘Whirl’ lip liner, Milani ‘Dulce Carmelo’ and the Milani Amor Shine ‘Delight Delice’.
