|Top to Bottom: Bourjois, Ted Baker, L’Oreal|
Whenever I think of Christmas the colour Red springs to mind so I wanted to do a Christmassy post full of Red beauty picks for those Christmas parties you may have coming up or if you just want to rock a red lip for the hell of it.
Closer to christmas I always get out my red nail varnishes and lippies out although these can be worn all year round which I do do, they tend to be very popular this month so I’ve picked out my favourites.
For the lips Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in the shade 08 Grand Cru a blue toned red is a liquid lipstick which feels so smooth to apply as it’s lightweight and it appears lighter than it looks in the tube on the lips, it lasts for a very long time with no smudge so it’s great for meals and nights out.
Ted Baker ‘Red’ sorry it has no name is a matte lipstick, blue toned is another favourite which I use when I go out. I’m afraid you can only get this from boots Christmas gift sets but it’s a great all rounder and perfect for the Christmas season.
L’Oreal Color Riche ‘461 Scarlett Creme’ is more pigmented than my TB lipstick but similar in colour as it is again a blue toned red. I find these suit my skin colour best but they are for everyone – If anyone knows any orange toned reds then let me know as I would like to try a brighter red.
To help prep my lips for all these lipsticks I’ve been using this Lush Santa Lip Scrub to buff away dead skin and the best thing about this is how it tastes of coke a cola.
For my nails I’ve picked a mixture of Reds, the first one being a recent purchase which is Models Own Scarlet Sparkle a gorgeous glittery red, next is a red which I got from my Body Shop advent calendar last year which is a dark red in the shade 120 Relish The Moment and the brightest red is from a previous Birchbox from a french brand Reverence De Bastien in the shade No 4 which will look great in summer too!
