Bright Lips in 3 Easy Steps!

Last year I became a little bit addicted to watching Beauty YouTubers such as Sprinkle of Glitter, Zoella & Tanya Burr. I’ve always had a love for makeup, but lost my way when the girls were little – just getting clean pants on everyday was a challenge, never mind a bit of lippy!

At a blogging conference a while ago, I was fortunate enough to meet the lovely Leah from Smudge Style – she whipped some false eyelashes on my eyes and I was SOLD. My love of beauty restored within my stressing soul. (deep. i know)

Leah has offered to Guest Post for us today – to snap us all into Summer Shape with Matte bright lips – I’ve picked up a Kate Moss lippy to give it a go on a hen night this weekend – will keep you posted!


Matte bright lips are a big trend for summer and can be found all over Pinterest. Anything from fuchsia to red will work. The nice thing about this look is that the rest of your makeup can be very simple. You can skip eyeshadow and just use mascara, bronze your cheeks and let the lip be the focus of your makeup.



1. Prep lips with a primer. Apply all over including the edges to smooth lip texture and help prevent bleeding.


2. Use a lip pencil the same colour as the lipstick to line the lips and create a crisp edge.


3. Using a lip brush, apply the lip colour making sure to blend the pencil and the lipstick for a seamless finish.
