Departure Into Reds

IMG_2748

Hello everyone!! Sorry I have been MIA over the past couple weeks I’ve just wanted to take some time off and relax but don’t worry because I won’t being taking a break anytime soon. I wanted to come back with a bang so today I’m sharing with you  my Departure Into Reds. I’m the kind of person that stays in my comfort zone and never trys anything new. My collection of neutral lip colors can sometimes feel overwhelming so stepping out of my bubble with a red is refreshing.

Lipsticks: I’m not a huge fan of matte lipsticks but the new Milani lipsticks have changed my life. They don’t bring out the dry parts of your lips.  The have colors ranging from everyday nudes to quite dramatic colors. In the collection they have the perfect classic red color called 67 Matte Confident. If you want a brighter sheer red lip then you should go for the Almay Butter Kiss Lipstick. I got the red that is suited for light to medium skin tones but if you have a darker skin tone they also have a red suited for you. A new product at the drugstore that has the perfect matte red is from Rimmel. It’s the Rimmel Show Off Lip Velvet in 505 Burning Lava. This is more of a liquid lipstick formula that just glides on the lips. The perfect blood red color.

Lip Liner: Lip liner is not a must have on an everyday basics but for a special occasion it will make your lipstick last longer. At the drugstore there is very slim pickings on lip liners. But I finally found the Covergirl Lip Perfection in the shade 215 Passion.

Lip Balms & Scrubs: Whenever you rocking a bolder lip you need to make sure that your lips are smooth and hydrated. To exfoliate my lips I use the Lush Santa’s Lip Scrub. I’m pretty sure this lip scrub is seasonal but if you can get your hands on it you need to. After you exfoliate your lips you should go in with a lip balm. My favorite is the Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me but if you prefer a potted balm I recommend the Bath and Body Works one in Garden Strawberries.

I hope you enjoyed this on my Departure Into Reds and if I’m missing any classic red lip colors leave me a comment down below telling me which ones. As always thank you so much for reading this blog post and I will talk to you guys soon!
