Every girl owns at least a few whether you are big into makeup or not you cant go past the little black bullets that are Mac lipsticks. They will always be a holy grail for most ladies.
While liquid lipsticks have become really popular in the last few years, they can be drying and annoying to reapply through the day without cracking or building up. So while they’re essential for a night out or a dinner date they aren’t the most practical for long wear every day. Thats where these little babies are absolute lifesavers. They apply smoothly and can be reapplied without that horrible look that most liquid lips give you.
Everyone loves a good nude, which most of my favourites happen to be (surprise!) But these are my top picks for the working week.
This is the perfect light pinky nude to welcome in the week. It totally screams ‘basic bitch!’ which is exactly how most of us feel on a monday, back to the grind after a crazy weekend.
Tuesday: Kinda Sexy
Kinda Sexy is a dark pinky nude that is my absolute perfect shade. It is the most natural shade but it also amps up any look. Tuesdays are all about an effortless face. Slap on a little bit of BB cream, some mascara, blush and natural brows with this shade and it will give you that effortless ‘I woke up like dis’ look.
Wednesday: Velvet Teddy
Well when Kim K mentioned Kylie’s Velvet Teddy on KUWTK the beauty world went crazy. This lipstick was out of stock for a good 3 months if not more. I was so disappointed as mine had recently run out and I could not get my hands on it. I went to my local mac counter to put my name on the waitlist like 4 times. This is a typical Kylie Jenner beige nude. Nothing says hump day like some Kardashian inspiration!
Mehr is my first ever Mac shade. Since the first time I purchased this I have repurchased about 5 times. I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Mehr. Now, I would describe this as a blueish pink shade. It has a lot of pigment so it is sure to amp up your look for both work and after work drinks. I love pairing this with Soar Lipliner. Give them a little overlining and Voilà!
In the words of the Queen Bey herself ‘Diva is the female version of a Hustler’ and girl after a long week you have finally made it to Friday!!! Only a few short hours stand between you and 48 hours of freedom! So go crazy and let out your inner Diva with a Dark Burgundy Red. With this shade noone will stand between you and… well… anything. YOU ARE FIERCE! GET IT GIRL!
