I blame Kylie Jenner for sparking a deep desire to use a slightly dark lip liner in combination with a nude lipstick.
I also blame the 90’s. The fall season that’s sneaked up on me can shoulder a bit of the blame too, no sweat.
Unlike the Kardashian-Jenner spawn *no hate!* I’m still sweatin’ my face off in the hot humid weather, so a matte/nude/liner trifecta isn’t the most weather appropriate lip to rock at the moment – but I’ll take my inspiration and “make it work” as Tim Gunn would prompt me to. How? blotted liner, a cremesheen lipstick and a dab of gloss to adapt it to this neverending summer.
I’ve been using some random rose-pink-with-a-brown-pull lipliner I got as a gift-with-purchase *okay, so I’ve gotten my hands on something else but I’ll share that in a little short while!* with my favourite nudey lip colour MAC’s Peachblossom with a dab of Maybelline’s Colour Sensational Shine Gloss in “137 Fabulous Pink” placed on the centre of the lip for a little extra oomph.
Have you been on a nude 90’s lip kick? Got any celebrity lip inspiration recently? Let me know!
