Today is the last day of Pearls and Polkadots’ “Beautiful Beauty Bloggers” series and although I’m sad to end this wonderful series, I am so happy to have Holly from Holly’s Housewife Life guest posting today! Her blog is so cute and fun to read and I always enjoy learning some new beauty tips (not to mention the pictures of her cutie pie!) Happy Reading!
Hi All!! I’m Holly from Holly’s Housewife Life and I’m here to talk LIPSTICK. Lipstick is a hot passion of mine so I thought I would share a few fall favorites with you all today.
When the warmer weather dies down and cool breezes start taking over I take that as my cue to amp up the lip game from light wearing/sheer pinks and corals to a punchy purple. Its the perfect transition lip before the deep, bold reds of the holiday season come into play. A burgundy or plum pout flatters every skin tone, is the perfect accessory to your scarf and sweater combo AND pops against the auburn/gold Canadian leaves; Eh.
So here are a few of my fall favorites for 2015 shades:
Left to right:
Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain in the shade Smitten, this is a flat out classic lippie. If you are a lipstick wearing pro or a newbie you should have some of these balm stains in your collection. The formula can be worn sheer, layered with extra gloss or built up to a fuller lip colour. Under $10 at Walmart or drugstore locations and is worth every penny!
MAC Cosmetics lustre lipstick in Plumful, a staple in most beauty lovers lipstick drawers. Its soft, smooth and so easy to wear. Described as a “blossoming rose-plum” it will flatter all ages from high school to hot grandma! $20 at MAC stores and online.
Kat Von D liquid lipstick in Bauhau5, this one is a bit trickier to apply because it really is long lasting! Do not apply in a hurry! However once its applied you wont have to look in the mirror all day, its a matte finish in a beautiful raspberry shade. $24 at Sephora Canada locations.
(These are my new favorite liquid lip colours, I mustn’t be alone because the colours are always sold out online. I am on the waiting list for half of them!)
Bite Beauty matte crème lipstick in Mulled Maple, I could not write a fall favorites post without mentioning the limited edition Bite beauty Canadian inspired lipsticks. These babies are so smooth and pigmented they are like a lip lovers dream. Do not dare to apply without lip liner because they’re so buttery your lips will be sliding all over the place! $28 at Sephora Canada they come in 5 gorgeous fall shades and you have to get your hands on them before they’re gone!
(Oops not sold on them yet?! They also smell like maple syrup, really they do!)
To get in the fall mood I did a quick little photo shoot on a chilly, rainy Newfoundland day..
