My lip combo has always been a hot topic over on Instagram and if I ever switch it up you all are the first to notice lol! I use multiple products to get the perfect nude combo that lasts all day. It’s always included a matte lipstick which I know can be drying and not everyones fave. I recently tried a few new products from Ulta that I’ve been LOVING! If you love the look of a matte lipstick but don’t love how they feel then the new Mac Powder Kiss Lipsticks are for you! This formula feels super creamy but with the look of matte – it’s quite literally where matte meets moisture!
My full lip rundown:
A few times a week I start by using the Mac Lip Scrubtious, a sugar-based exfoliator that gently buffs away dry and flaky skin. This makes sure I start with soft, smooth lips.
Next (and this one might seem out of order but trust me!) I go in with my Mac Lip Liner – I’ve been using shade Soar recently and love it! I do this before my lip primer because I like to be able to smudge it a bit. No harsh lines here!
Next is the Mac Prep + Prime Lip – this stuff is GOLD! I concentrate the lip primer on the inside of my lips, and then take it up and over my liner. This step is crucial for overall smoothness and bit of moisture. It also helps to keep the lipstick on much longer!
And last but certainly not least – Mac Powder Kiss Lipstick! I start at the inside of my lip, just like I do with the primer, and then lightly go over the lip liner. This gives your lips a subtle ombre look which I think you all really like! If you want the color of the lipstick to stand out more and not have the ombre effect you can always skip the liner and just use the primer + lipstick. I’ve been wearing shade Influentailly It and also picked up shade Sulterness which is a very soft, pretty pink. Both can be worn with or without the Soar liner for different lip looks.
I hope you all love these products as much as I do and as always, thanks for stopping by!
