Valentine’s Day Lip Looks
Valentine’s Day – the official holiday of smooching – is nearly here, so it’s time to think about your luscious lip plan.
Today I am giving you 3 date night lip options combined with a little color theory class, breaking down some color options for those of you with a cool complexion and those of you with warm undertones.
Read on and pucker up!
Valentine’s lip number one is for those of you who don’t want to do a big lip, but feel like more than just chapstick. Try using a lipliner to shape your kisser, and top it off with a colored lip gloss. In these images we’ve left the liner where you can see it, but in real life blend through it with your lip brush and make it invisible.
Icy and pink glosses such as Nars lip gloss in Striptease
look fabulous on girls with a cool toned complexion, while soft peachy tones like Nars lip gloss in Giza
are beautiful on a warm toned girl.
Valentine’s lip number two is all about your pink game. Moving into a full lipstick our warm undertone gets a lovely coral based pink which compliments the olives and golds in her skin. Try MAC “Flamingo Park” lipstick in Flocking Fabulous
Our cool undertone model got a blue based pink, breathing magic into her complexion and making her teeth look super white. I love MAC lipstick in All Fired Up
Valentine’s lip number three is a feisty bold red lip – the ultimate Valentine’s lip! Girls with a cool toned complexion look amazing in a blue based red, I’m obsessed with Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Red Carpet Red
while warm toned girls are best in a true red or an orange based red. (pictured here in a true red).
If you are looking for an ornage based red lipstick you cannot go wrong with MAC lipstick in Lady Danger
The lip models in this story were actually 2 of my makeup assistants! Whitney is our cool toned girl, and Therese is my warm complected model.
Here are a couple of bts shots.
