The weekend is here and with that comes brunch with unlimited mimosas, shopping, and dinner dates. With so many fun things to do, looking your best is a must. My very simple tip on making an outfit look great for any weekend activity is, lipstick!
A bold red lip is great all year long making it a 'go to' for many of us. Here's a few of my favorites to get you ladies all ready for your weekend festivities.
For the past year or so, I've been obsessed with liquid lipsticks. I love how they glide onto your lips smoothly then gives you that matte finish. My absolute fave red has been Stila Stay All Day liquid lipstick in Fiery ($24). Literally the perfect color for me. The name does not lie, stay all day is exactly what it does. Even after eating and drinking, this lipstick will barely budge.
Before falling in love with liquid lipsticks, matte lipsticks were my everything. MAC Cosmetics Ruby Woo matte lipstick ($17) is a great lippie that has been in my collection for years now. It's an elegant bright red that looks stunning. If you're a girl who's all about her traditional lipsticks, this is one for you.
I always line my lips with MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in Kiss Me Quick ($21) for both of the above lipsticks to keep them in place and avoid color transfer.
What I love about the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella ($26) is that I can use it as a liner or as a lipstick. A two in one is always nice. It has a rich and creamy consistency that's so comfortable for wearing all day.
For a less expensive red lippie out of the bunch is the Ulta Matte Lip Cream in Stirring ($9). It's a deep plum-ish red shade that looks so good and rich in color. It's a liquid lipstick with a creamy mousse like texture. Unlike the Stila lipstck mentioned above, this one takes a little longer to dry to its matte finish. Nonetheless, it's still an amazing affordable option that's worth a few extra minutes.
When it comes to lipstick, red is always a good idea. Wishing everyone a fun and eventful weekend!
