Your Nana was right, you know?
A little lippy on the lips before you step out for the day can make all the difference to your mood and how put together you look.
Which is why this lazy-girl beauty queen always carries a swag of her favourite pop lippy colours in her handbag.
Because, unlike my Nana, I’m more likely to have left the lipstick application until I’m in the car and stopped at traffic lights on the school run.
In my lazy-girl thinking, if I’ve managed to slap on a bit of BB Cream, concealer, a lick of mascara and a highlighting blush, I can take this
fake minimal makeup look and make it appear like I’ve made an effort … particularly if I leave my sunnies on.
Check out my vlog for the lowdown on 4 lipsticks to pop your lips – they’re my faves but I’d also like to hear about yours. (Warning: I may have taken the Nana analogy too far and there may or may not be incidences of Nana teeth. Oops.)
1. Eles Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Melon $39.50 | 2. Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain $50 | 3. Napoleon Perdis Lady in Red Lip Gloss $30 | 4. Maybelline New York SuperStay 14HR Lipstick $18.95
And because every pop colour lip needs a subtle eye to enhance the pop, if you’re not a lazy-girl like me who rarely wears eye colour unless out for the day or night, then feast your eyes on this new nude palette (due out from Napoleon Perdis on October 14).
The Ultimate Nude Palette ($79) is an edit of the most flattering eye shadows, blush and highlighters – in one compact (just slightly bigger than a smartphone in size) unit. It’s got all you need create a day nude or a night nude. If you want some tips on how to create a nude eye, re-visit this video I made earlier this year.
(And yes, I’m giggling like a little schoolgirl now … over the word NUDE. I need to grow up.)
Do you use this lazy-girl beauty trick? Or are you firmly a gloss-only girl? What’s the one lippie or gloss that never lets you down?
