My beauty look

When wearing a nude colour on your lips you need to pay attention to skin clarity. On those days you want a barely-there finish, start your makeup with an illuminating primer, this helps create an even look to your skin, and allows you to wear minimal makeup. Then spot correct blemishes with a concealer. I am a brow grooming addict, it gives definition to the eye area when you want to go eye makeup free, finally, black mascara is all you need to finish your sporty makeup look.

Berry lip tip

When wearing berry coloured lipstick, match your blush and eyeshadow with the same undertone as the lipstick. If the lippy is cool go with rose and soft pink if it's a warm think bronze and copper shades.

Long lasting foundation is a must for an evening out, apply with your fingers and then buff away any lines with a fluffy makeup brush. Berry is my go to shade for after five. This vibrant shade with a touch of sparkle hits the spot for an evening makeup look. Layer the Crushed Color Lipstick with gloss, to add a sheen or apply a nude colour as a base, and then the berry shade over the top.

How to wear coral lipstick

Coral lip tip

As you age, your natural lip lines fade, which is where the balm-like texture of this lipstick is so nourishing. To avoid lipstick bleeding, never apply bright colours all the way to the edges of your lips. Prep the lips with a little eye cream first, to moisturise buff over a tiny amount of concealer and then apply this coral lipstick straight from the bullet.

My beauty look

Softer than red, coral lipstick is ideal for work. It adds a pop of colour and polish to my workwear wardrobe. The creamy texture of this lippy allows me to press this bold hue on my lips with my finger. This technique diffuses the colour and creates a bright stain that lasts for hours, add gloss or lip shine in the middle of the bottom lip. Stick foundation, is great for touchups during the day, as is a cream eyeshadow. Products that have a hint of sparkle are quick to apply and youthful-looking, this makeup style is ideal to wear every day.
