One thing I rarely leave the house without is a swipe of color on my lips. It’s one of those things I feel ‘incomplete’ without. Even during the summer months I’ll wear something light and moisturizing like this or this. Each season I tend to gravitate towards a few go to lip colors and today I’m sharing my current must have lip colors that I’m loving and have been wearing regularly for months now. A basic nude liner is always a must and this affordable NYX one has been in my cometic bag for awhile. It’s a perfect soft nude and I usually pair it with a subtle pink butter gloss like this one in creme brulée or tiramisu. When I want a more defined look but still simple, I’ll pair this liner in 2c with this butter gloss in tiramisu.
For a few of my go to lips that are more dramatic I’ll use either my go to Marc Jacobs in slow burn or Chanel Rouge in soft rose. I’ll use this liner for slow burn or this liner for soft rose. Both shades are a deeper mauve/rose shade on my skin tone. I love that the Marc Jacobs lip color is creamy yet still semi-matte without being super drying like most liquid lipsticks can tend to do. Chanel Rouge has to be my favorite long wear lip color!! Hands down it lasts and wears flawlessly without flaking off like some long wear lip colors. For long days at the office I’m wanting to try this lighter color in darling pink for Spring.
