Bold and Bright makeup can be quite intimidating, but it’s not as scary as you might think. When it’s done right a bold lip can really vamp up your everyday makeup look.
It’s great for quickly creating a polished look on those days where you would rather spend more time in bed than putting on your makeup.
But before we get into our top bold and bright lip looks, here are some tips you should always remember.
1. Your lips should always be the focal point when wearing a bold colour. All you need to do is sweep some neutral or light coloured blush across your cheeks and a coat or two of mascara and you’re done! Easy.
2. Using a brush to apply your lip colour will make your application more precise and easy to work with. It will also be a lot neater and will last longer.
3. Once you have applied your lipstick, use a piece of tissue paper to dab off the excess and then re-apply the same lipstick. This too will make your lipstick last much longer.
Now we can get to the fun bit. Here is our list of five Bold and Bright lip looks, enjoy!
One thing to be careful of when finding a new lip colour is that the formula is not too drying on your lips. But you’re in luck because our Studio Moisturising Lipsticks are enriched with shea and vitamins A, C and E to hydrate your lips all day. There is a range of gorgeous colours to choose from but Velvet Rope is one of our favourites.
Our other favourite moisturizing lipstick is Flirty and Fabulous. This is a bold, daring and fun shade to wear. All we need is a coat of mascara, a little blush and we’re good to go. If you wanted to make this colour a little brighter, lightly swipe your foundation or powder over your lips before you apply the lipstick.
A bright pink lip will win us over every time! Birthday Suit is fun, flirty and a little daring. If you think that a bold pink lip is not your thing, We urge you to give it a go! Just remember to tone down the rest of your makeup, your lips should always be the main attraction.
If you’re looking for something a little more subtle to start off with then the Studio Moisturising Lipstick in Rosy Go Round is a great choice! This gorgeous raspberry shade is perfect for wearing in the office and transitions smoothly for after work cocktails!
Jumbo Lip gloss sticks are a great way to add colour to your makeup collection without breaking the bank. Tiki Torches is our bold and bright pick from this collection, it has a little shimmer so its great for the last of these summer days. Make the most of this gorgeous colour while you can!
