Banish Liquid Lipstick to the Winter????

20170711_193025

I can’t remember where I first read this, but I’m calling a bit massive nope on it.

Why should a specific type of product be kept for a specific time of year? If makeup companies only wanted their products to be worn in the cooler months, they wouldn’t design such vibrant shades, which tend to be worn in the Summer.

You hear all of these so-called rules regarding makeup all the time: Red and Green should never be seen, Don’t wear bold lips with bold eyes, concealer after foundation, red heads shouldn’t wear red lipstick.

I’m going to be honest here and say the majority of so-called makeup rules are bullshit. Do whatever you want. Do whatever makes you happy. If you want to wear red lipstick with green eyeshadow, do it! Apply your makeup in whatever routine you prefer. There are no makeup police. If you like the way you have applied something and it gives you confidence, wear that look with pride.

On the topic of liquid lipsticks, if they aren’t supposed to be worn in the Summer, why have Rimmel just launched a new liquid lipstick collection in July? There are some beautiful shades in this collection ideal for hot weather. And they feel very hydrating without smudging through the day. Yes these are kiss-proof.

Makeup is meant to be experimented with. If everyone dressed the same or applied the same makeup every day we would look like clones. So if you want to break the ‘rules’ go ahead. I certainly will. I am wearing Beauty Bakerie’s Lip Whip in Take me for pomegranate as I write this, and I am loving it!

What makeup rules do you love to break?

Have a nice day guys!
