My Fave Lip Combos
Sorta like my mani/pedi nail polishes, I almost always default to the same 3-4 colors. You could definitely call me a creature of habit! I believe every woman should know what colors look good and will make her feel fabulous.
Finding a good red is hard. Especially with such a bold statement I want it to be perfect! My go to for a looong time has been MAC’s Cherry liner paired with Chanel’s Rouge Coco in #444 in Gabrielle. MAC’s Ruby Woo and MAC Red are both close.
Lately I’ve been partial to liquid lipsticks for brighter colors. They just stay so much better it’s hard to beat. Stila’s Liquid Lipstick in Fiery is a pretty true red and stays ALL day.
For more depth I’ll swap Cherry liner for Brick.
Pink is hands down my most worn combo! Edge to Edge liner and Snob both from MAC. Sometimes I’ll skip the lipstick and just do liner all over and add gloss. If I’m looking for a little more depth, I’ll substitute Edge to Edge with Whirl, a more of a brownish pink. Whirl is AMAZING, one of the few liners I’ve worn for 15+ years.
I’ll finish it all off with a gloss, the usual suspects are
YSL’s Glossy Stain in #208 Wet Nude - HOLY GRAIL product right here!!! This formula is amazing. It stays for hours and leaves lips feeling moisturized. It’s made of the same waxy product sprayed on apples to make them shiny but keep them fresh (weird, I know).
Dior Ultra Gloss in Fantasie - The mother of all plumping glosses! What I love about this formula is it does not make your lips all tingly like other plumpers can. It’s full of moisturizers and hyaluronic acid which helps to plump the lips.
NARS Turkish Delight - A very well known gloss! This is the perfect shade of white pink that gives just enough pop (without being too 80s vibes)
This combo is PERFECT for Fall and can’t wait to wear it more. For the days I want a bold lip I almost always default to MAC’s Rebel paired with Magenta liner. Their Satin formula is great as it provides bold color with a comfortable moisturizing finish.
Also a huge fan of Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick in Soft Lilac. The liquid stays MUCH better but tends to be drying for me.
I’ll top both off usually with Buxom’s lip gloss in Dolly.
A tried and true combo. Goes with everything and can be worn year round! I usually like to pair this with a smoky eye so there’s balance. Pictured wearing MAC’s Creme Cup lipstick with good ol’ Whirl liner.
