NYX Lipstick...Time to Update your Lipstick Collection?
Feeling uninspired when you peer into the depths of your cluttered make-up bag? Don’t worry; you’re not the only one! It’s summer, which means it’s time to ditch the dark autumn and winter shades and update your cosmetics collection. Fancy trying a nude shade for the first time? Maybe you want to brave it with a bold colour? With NYX Lipsticks from just £4.99 each, experimenting with a new look doesn’t have to cost a fortune. And if you do want to go for a more subtle make-up look and try a nude lippie, the great news is NYX have plenty to choose from. Not sure pale lips will work for you? Err on the side of caution and opt for NYX ‘Pumpkin Pie’, a wearable pale nude peach or ‘Thalia’ a pretty nude pink. If, however, you want to go all out then ‘Honey’, a pale nude beige or Circe, a traditional nude beige are definitely worth a look.
In summer we tend to tone down our make-up and opt for lighter formulations and ingredients that don’t weigh down the skin. This doesn’t mean you have to ditch your lippie in favour of a lightweight gloss. Instead, work the lipstick colour into your lips with your finger or a lip brush to create a stain and add a slick of light gloss over the top. Go all girlie this summer and team on-trend beachy waves with a pale pink lipstick like ‘Harmonica’. Offering a subtle hint of colour, this is a shade that’ll look just as perfect with a tan as it does against porcelain-skinned beauties.
Love pinks? Then you’ll adore NYX Baby Pink Lipstick, the cutesy pale pink NYX Lipstick Strawberry Milk or the shocking bright pink ‘Narcissus’. What could be more summery than Orange Soda? Apply a lippie of the same name and rock this pale coral shade – just perfect for hitting the beach. If you’re going for a striking lip colour like Narcissus, keep eyes fairly neutral to draw the attention to the lips. Likewise, if you opt for a bold eye look, go for a pale or nude lipstick. And remember to exfoliate well and apply a good lip balm before lipstick.
While lip glosses are becoming more and more popular, you can’t beat the good old fashioned lipstick for long lasting colour and unbeatable pigmentation. Slip one in your beach bag and make waves this summer!
