The Lesson: Bare Face, Bold Lip

Bright lips on a clean face is one of my favorite beauty looks. I love how it makes me feel pulled together; even with messy hair and a t-shirt and jeans. I liked Emily’s take on making the most of a bold lip with even skin and just a little bronze glow.

Here are the products I used from my makeup stash to recreate it:

MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Invisible Cover Foundation – I added a little moisturizer to a couple pumps of foundation, then mixed and warmed it in my hands before applying it all over my face for a more sheer, dewy finish. Then I went back and added a few drops of undiluted foundation under my eyes, around my nose, and to any other places that needed a little extra coverage.

 Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights Face Illuminator in Bronze Light – I’m no longer afraid of liquid bronzer; this stuff is easy to blend and lasts all day.

Too Faced Lash Injection Mascara

FLOWER Sheer Up Lip Tint in Dewy Rose – Sheer, moisturizing lip crayons make an everyday bold lip almost fool-proof. I did a quick search on Walmart’s website to find this shade, but I think it may be discontinued (sad face). I also love Clinique’s Chubby Stick in Chunky Cherry, which is really similar.

  1. I love this natural look!! I should try using different lip colors like you to spruce up my everyday look! What colors have you tried this fall that you can suggest for office/school look?? I want to try some of the louder colors, but I’m worried that it would be frowned upon in a business setting!! I have light and paler skin like you and would love to hear suggestions from you!
