How To: Bold Purple Lip

Bold lips are a beauty phenom I am trying my best to embrace and a purple lip is another beauty trend I am going to attempt to conquer over the next few weeks. I have always liked the idea of a purple lip, I have had the tools to create it in my makeup collection for quite a while but to actually attempt it? Well that I haven’t really gotten round to until now. Today I have a lip recipe I cooked up in my bedroom and tomorrow it’s going to be a recipe I actually wear out. Wish me luck!

The first step I always turn to for a defined lip is lip liner. It’s practically become a necessity for my lip routine on a day I want to apply a strong lip colour. For this look I am using NYX Lip Pencil in Deep Purple, a colour that is true to its name. I am applying thickly around the outline of my lip, to define and add a slight ombre like effect.

Next using a lip brush, I’m using the Real Techniques brush from the Core Collection, take your purple lipstick/gloss/stain of choice and apply all over the lips being careful it to feather it lightly over the lip liner part. I used Demure from OCC, it’s a lip tar which is highly highly pigmented. I have 6 lip tars in total but use none! Need to start making more use of my collection.

You can stop here if you want to, especially if you want controllable lips that won’t smear if you accidentally brush it against something! However I really wanted that high shine glossy finish that looks slightly 3D so to achieve that look I applied clear gloss on top of the lip tar. Again using a brush to make sure the colour isn’t disturbed. Yes I will probably have to be a bit more careful not to smear, but I think every now and then it is worth the extra effort.

That’s all there is to this look, it is rather simple to create I think, thank god as eye looks definitely take a lot more time. If lip creations took just as long, god only knows how long it would take me to get ready. On a special occasion like a wedding or Eid I’ve noticed it takes me around an hour and a half to do my own hair and makeup, atrocious I know! I think my 2014 goal is to definitely get much faster with applying my own makeup and clients, I am a bit of slow coach! Would you wear this look? Tanzina x
