I'm Back!!!! I hated not doing a 'real' blog post yesterday but it was so worth it for such a good cause and I hope that if you could donate, you did.
Onto a merrier subject today and to bring a bit of gorgeous spring inspired joy into your life, I thought I would try some gradient lips inspired by the beautiful Cherry Blossom tree that is taking over my garden at the minute. How friggin' yum do they look...not like I'm biased or nuffin'....
So to create this yummy look I thought I'd bring in one of the Freebies I got in my Lush Goodie Bag, the Celebrate Lip Tint. As per usual with my lip routine that I shared with you little pickles the other day, I'd already buffed my lips to get rid of any crusty dry bits and left a bit of lip balm on there for a few minutes to make them all soft and marvellous. So I took my Celebrate and popped it over the centre part of my lips, kind of avoiding the lip line. Then I built up some of my heavenly and very popular with you kids, YSL Provocatively Pink Lipstick on my lip brush and slowly and carefully edged my mush with this.
So then your left with two quite definite different colours on your lip- by the way; choose any colours you want! I think this would look boss with a lilac and dark purple too but I'm the pink kid as you know so this was the obvious choice for me. Im def trying some different colours soon- oooh maybe white to black if your daring! So yup- You have the two separate colour rings on your lips and all you need to do then is push your lips together- a lip smack I'm calling it and this blends the colours together.
To finish it off and give a little staying power I got a bit of my uber pink blusher (that I'm reviewing this week BTW) from my Sleek Blush Palette and dotted this onto the YSL with my finger. What do we think kids? Im loving it! It makes me feel like an Asian Princess; essentially I'm Mulan on Disco Night!!! Hurrah!!! I'd love it if you gave it a try with as many different colours as you can and post them back to me! I want a full bouquet of petal lips.
