Tip: Go outside your comfort zone and mix up your palette. Using a lip brush, build a rich colour with 2 or 3 lipsticks, mixing on your hand before applying to give your lips beautiful depth.

 

Glam

Lips
Illamasqua Pure Pigment Ore
MAC Blush Copper *Limited Edition
Modern Basic Distrubtors Gold Pigment

Tip: Layer your lip colours to add more dimension. Start with a darker shade, blot, then layer on a sheer frost shade, following by clear gloss for added shine.

 

Sexy Fierce

Lips:
Illamasqua Lipstick Atomic
MAC Lipstick Pink Fusion
MAC Pigment Magenta Madness

Tip: Go bright! Leave sparkly eye shadow and deep blush shades for another night. Instead, line your eyes, add a few false lashes, and apply lots of mascara for maximum drama. Keep the rest of your face neutral, so that your lips standout. And don’t be shy, fuschia, coral and siren red are all acceptable lip colours.
