It’s no secret I’m a sucker for a bold lip. From bright red to a deep plum – I don’t shy away from any shade. So while I’ve shared with y’all a few of my favorite lipsticks that I wear throughout the year, I thought it might be fun to also share how I keep that deep lip look on all day. There’s not a lot to it, just a few steps that make a big difference in updating your daily makeup routine.
Step One – Use a lip liner similar in color to your lipstick and go around the edge of your lips to create a smooth, clean edge.
Step Two: Fill In Lips With The Lip Liner to Create A Matte Surface.
Step Three: Apply your favorite shade of lipstick, being sure to stay inside the lip liner lines.
Step 4: Create a flawless edge by applying a bit of powder around your lips.
After sharing my love/obsession with Kate Spade Saturday’s Mini A Satchel in my latest Gift Guide, I decided to dive a bit more into their site to find a few more goodies I could ask Santa for this Christmas. I’m a sucker for easy, versatile pieces I can wear to work, and once I spotted this perfect shirtdress in their sale section (get an extra 25% off already reduced sale styles with code SALEAWAY too!) I knew I had to add this to my wish list. Paired with tights and boots like the girl left is totally my style, but I could easily wear this shirtdress come springtime with an easy panama hat and sandals. Dare I say this really is the perfect dress!
