Look of the Week : Double Trouble
With the summer holidays around the corner, I wanted to take on a bold beauty trend that pulls all the focus to your pout! This lip application is perfect for the indecisive women; why wear one lip shade when you can wear two? Enter Two-Toned Lips.
With lips being such a focal part of our beauty routine, why not give each a dedicated color of its own? There are two ways to wear this trend: Complimentary colors or clashing colors. For a more understated look that also adds fullness to your lips, chose complimenting colors such as dark pink or light pink. If you want to bring a little drama and fun to your beauty routine then chose clashing colors, the most complimentary of which is orange and pink! I used M.A.C Cosmetics All Fired Up and Morange.
Application Tip: Since you don’t want the color mixing, you can create a long wear texture once you’ve applied your lipstick by holding a face tissue over your lips and dusting over them with translucent powder.
The key is to experiment and have fun with it. Pull out the lipsticks in your kit that you don’t wear often and try pairing them up and see what funky combinations you can come up with. Go ahead, get creative!
