How To Wear Summer Lips in Winter

How I make my summer color work is by pairing my lipstick with a colorful top, scarf or even with my nail polish and it instantly elevates my outfit. One of my fun shades is the NYX Summer Breeze, which is like a bubble gum pink that goes perfectly with my skin tone. It is matte and may be slightly more drying in the winter. To help with that dryness, I use Vaseline before I apply my lip liner and lipstick. You can also apply a topcoat of lip gloss on it as well for extra moisture.

Winter is not one of my favorite seasons of the year, however that doesn’t stop me from sporting some of my fun summer shades to brighten up my look and my day. I don’t tend to follow trends when it comes to lipstick shades, I just practically use what I have and make it work for me. One of the things that I stay consistent with, however, is using my lip scrub, especially in the winter time.

How do you wear your summer shades in winter? Let me know. XOXO

Berrylicious Winter Lips

There are times when I’m not looking for a specific lipstick so what I do is pick out a lip liner first and get inspiration from that to choose on a lipstick shade. It’s the same as picking out your shoes first and getting inspiration from your shoes to put the rest of your outfit together. So, recently I was at Wal-Mart and went through the beauty aisle – of course, and the Milani 12 Lip Liner caught my eye. I’ve just started trying out Milani lip products and actually liked them so this was another opportunity for me to try another lip product.

After I got my lip liner I then searched for a fun lipstick shade that I could possiblypair with it and I ended up with Almay 120 with a medium-red shade. I was so excited to put these two lip shades together and was impressed with the results. These two shades had my lips puckering in berrylicious style.
