Simple makeup with a twist!

Spring is officially here, yayyyy! As much as I love the dark lips of winter, I am so ready for some spring/summer brights. I tend to keep everything else quite simple when I'm whacking on a bold lip, just to keep it looking fresh. 

I started with applying my base, to keep things light and dewy I used the Laura Mercier oil free it tinted moisturizer in Porcelain. I prefer to apply this with my fingers, I find that this gives the most natural look. I decided to skip concealer, so sorry for the dark circles. I then applied the Jouer bronzer in Sunswept to my temples and under my cheekbones using the Real Techniques duo fibre face brush. Then for a subtle pop of colour on the cheeks, I applied a little of the Illamasqua cream blusher in Rude, again with my fingers. As I have combination skin, I just popped on a bit of the Estée Lauder Double Wear powder on my t-zone.

I kept the eyes super simple by blending a tiny bit of Mac Charcoal Brown eyeshadow and a heck of a lot of L'Oreal Miss Manga mascara. I also used Charcoal Brown on my eyebrows. I used the Mac 266 brush for eyes and eyebrows. 

Finally we have the most important part of this look, the lips. I have done two lip options, a girls gotta have options! They are my two favourite bright bold lipsticks that I have. The first picture is with Nars Satin Lip Pencil in YU and the second picture is Tom Ford Lip Color in True Coral. Both are very creamy  and long lasting. Love love love! 

What is your favourite bold lip?
